Glossier has had us hooked on several of its products for years, from its popular Balm Dotcom to You Eau De Parfum.

The beauty and skincare brand has had us on tenterhooks for its hotly anticipated new launch, and now the day has finally arrived as there is another make-up bag essential we are lusting after.

After two years in the making Glossier has launched its first ever hand cream, which has been described by the label as a happy medium between a cream and a lotion.

Ahead of the big unveil on 23 April, Glossier gifted the first 10,000 hand creams to COVID-19 frontline workers in America, to help protect them during the coronavirus pandemic.

Now the hydrating product is available to buy for customers across the globe for £16.

Glossier confirmed the news of the release in their Instagram account, and within minutes the post has attracted a lot of attention and racked up over 30,000 likes.

One fan commented: “OMG I want this, I want all your products”, another added: “So excited.”

The formula is enriched with nourishing nutrients, as it includes meadowfoam seed oil and coconut fruit extract to absorb and lock moisture in, as well as echinacea, rice bran, sunflower and rosemary, which have soothing properties, to calm irritated skin.

While the ingredient glycofilm pollustop works to form a protective barrier to fight against stressors that will aggravate the dermis.

Plus, the lotion is scented with their signature Flossier You fragrance, and is fast-absorbing so you will not be left with greasy hands.

What we love most is the product comes in an ergonomic flip top container, which is recyclable, while the nozzle applicator allows you to dispense the cream with precision.

Glossier’s Hand Cream is cruelty free and GMO-free, plus has been dermatologically tested so it is suitable for all skin types.

While the lotion is available to buy separately, it has also been added to The Comfort Collection bundle, which is complete with Hand Cream, Priming Moisturiser Rich, and Bubblewrap at just £55.
