Archipelago Botanicals Oat Milk Hand Cream

I don’t know about you, but my body took a beating from the endless winter weather we’ve been having here in NYC. Windy, dry, and cold, I don’t think there was much I could do to stay hydrated and moisturized.

If you’re looking for something to help with all of that, I would recommend the Oat Milk Hand Cream from Archipelago Botanicals.

The brand describes this as reminiscent of Grandma’s oatmeal bath, and I have to say, that is the effect I get from this. It reminds you of home remedies and is comforting and nourishing, albeit in a more put-together manner.

Loaded with jojoba esters for smooth application, there are dried milk solids and gentle oat proteins blended with aloe to create a really super hydrating, genuinely moisturizing hand cream.

I think this would be great for traveling — throw it in your carry on and you’re good to go, perfect for staying hydrated on the plane. A little bit goes a long way with this one, which is also great, since it means the small package is the perfect size.
