Glossier has just launched a new handcream — and it’s already in our basket

Always have hydration on hand


We can always rely on Glossier to come to our aid when we need it.

Today Glossier launched their newest product, Hand Cream, two years in the making, packaged as iconically as ever.

Ergonomically packaged for hand moisturising on-the-go, Hand Cream comes in a Glossier pink palm-sized pod with sleek curves and 360º squeeze, and a click-to-close cap so it doesn’t squeeze all over your handbag.

The supercharged formula includes a blend of mega-hydrating, fast-absorbing moisturisers filled with nutrients that nourish without feeling greasy, including Meadowfoam Seed Oil and Coconut Fruit Extract, and a ‘second skin’ matrix in the formula ensures your hands retain moisture.

The best news is that Hand Cream comes infused with a new take on their signature scent Glossier You, reimagined for hands, with a closer wear and heightened emphasis on clean and fresh notes.

Glossier Hand Cream is dermatologist-tested, cruelty-free, gluten-free, soy-free, dairy-free, nut-free, GMO-free and suitable for all skin types.

“It’s a beautiful formula, delivered in some pretty ingenious packaging, and in addition to its heightened usefulness, we hope it brings you a little joy and comfort at a time when we could all use some,” says CEO and founder Emily Weiss.

Glossier donated the first 10,000 units of Hand Cream to healthcare workers in the U.S, and have donated thousands of Balm Dotcoms, Priming Moisturizers, and Soothing Face Mists to hospital teams over the past few weeks.

“One of the most frequent requests we’ve received during this time is for a hand cream,” says Emily Weiss. “As it happens, our community has been asking the same thing: we’ve been working on Glossier Hand Cream for nearly two years, and have been so excited to bring it into the world this spring.

“We designed Hand Cream with connection and community in mind — over the years, we’ve heard so many stories about strangers talking, even becoming friends, because they spotted someone using Balm Dotcom in the wild, and we had hoped that Hand Cream might also inspire connection through beauty.”

Glossier Hand Cream, €18, is available now from glossier.com.
