Seam-free: Seams hand-softening cream

What is it?  Hand cream made for a couturier’s atelier, and it proved such a hit backstage at London Fashion week A/W 2013 that it’s now being released to the wider world.. 


What’s the USP? Invisible mending for hands and nails: it’s a restorative treatment for hands, with the power to soften skin, lighten age spots and deliver long-lasting hydration.


Why the name? Because it’s ‘the ultimate seamstress for your hands’, says the brand. They don’t add, though they might: ‘to stop them coming apart at the seams…’ 

How new is it? Just launched.   

I’d try it… As a treat. It’s lovely to use – creamy but sinks in well so doesn’t leave hands greasy, so it’s what they call ‘touch-safe’ when handling fabric — but it’s a fashionably expensive £9.50 for a 50ml tube
