Elizabeth and James hand cream



I've found Sephora staff come over and say "hi are you finding everything ok?" But they aren't too sure themselves. Two occasions now I've went to another store and got what I wanted. When the Elizabeth and James perfume first came out in January 2014, I went in one Sephora and asked if they had the Elizabeth and James perfumes. They said they did behind the back and came back saying they aren't allowed to sell until later in the month. I walked away thinking I wouldn't be able to buy the perfume, as I was only over in New York for a few nights. I happened to go in another Sephora and over heard someone ask for "the Olsen twins perfume". The guy said he'd get it from behind the back, then he brought them out. So I managed to get both the black and white perfumes in another Sephora.

 This time when I was over in New York I walked into Sephora in Times Square looking for the Elizabeth and James dry shampoo and hand cream, since they are the newest products I hadn't got. Elizabeth and James have their own stand in Sephora, so I found the dry shampoo easily but I couldn't see the hand cream. Then one of the Sephora staff asked if I was finding everything ok. I asked if they had the Elizabeth and James hand cream. She replied no. I said do you know if any of the other Sephora's near by will have it? She said the Times Square sephora get the most stock, so I wouldn't get it in the other stores near by. I said ok thanks anyway and bought the dry shampoo. I then went for a walk around Times Square and happened to pass the Sephora on 42nd street. I spotted the Elizabeth and James stand near the door and stopped to have a look. A guy member of staff from Sephora came over asking if am finding everything ok. I just laughed and said no I've came all the way from Scotland for the Elizabeth and James hand cream and you don't have it. He replied we do and showed me to the shelves by the till. I'd have never thought to check by the tills. So if you're that guy who works in Sephora on 42nd street, you're awesome!!! I'd be devastated coming home without it.

There is two Elizabeth and James hand creams, black and white version. They are priced at $15 for 50ml. I picked up both hand creams. 

The black Elizabeth and James hand cream smells of violet, sandalwood and vanilla. The black is my favourite, I love to know the smell is still there and I personally find the black smell lasts longer. 

The Elizabeth and James white smells of muguet, peony and musk. It has a total different smell to the black to why I love both versions, but it's a lot lighter scented. 

I have never really liked hand creams, as my hands have felt weird after applying hand creams. I use a small amount of the Elizabeth and James hand cream and I forget I've even put hand cream on, as my hands don't have that greasy feeling some hand creams give the feeling of. I love the smell, sometimes I start smelling my hands like a weirdo haha. 

I seriously recommend this, $15 well spent. Am so glad I bought three tubes of the black and one white, since we can't buy this in the UK.
