I used to think hand cream was for old ladies. But to my horror, I have just realised that I have old ladies' hands. Too much dishwashing, gardening and handwashing have been taking their toll while I have carried on, blissfully unaware that my hands are desperate for some soothing moisture.

A baker acquaintance told me to use olive oil, which did work up to a point, but it's not that practical to lug it around and the smell takes some getting used to. Normal moisturiser left my hands feeling greasy but still dry, and the few old lady-style hand creams I tried were too highly perfumed and not soothing enough.

In desperation I turned to a tube of Trilogy's new Ultra Hydrating Hand Cream. I've long been a fan of Trilogy products but a recent run-in with its sparkly fake tan made me wary. I needn't have worried - this is a genius product. It's rich but not greasy, has a gentle vanilla and orange scent and soaks in fast. Like all Trilogy products it contains the magic healing powers of rosehip oil, along with various other soothing unguents. A little goes a long way, making it very reasonably priced for something that feels so high-end.

Most refreshingly, the tube is free from any flowery motifs, meaning the man in your life won't feel emasculated by using it too. But insist that he does a lot of dishwashing first to get the best effect.

Trilogy Ultra Hydrating Hand Cream, RRP $23.90.
