We don’t talk about hand creams often enough. The importance of moisturising the skin on your face is always emphasised, but when the average Singaporean spends most of the day in a drying air-conditioned environment, it’s more likely than not that the skin on your hands are parched.

So if you don’t already carry around a tube of hand cream in your bag and use it semi-obsessively, let us recommend one: the Bottega Verde Hand Cream With Red Grape Extract. Bottega Verde is an Italian brand from Tuscany, and has recently opened its first standalone store in Southeast Asia right here in Singapore, at Suntec City. Head there to experience a whole range of skincare, body care, haircare, cosmetic ranges and even fragrances – there’s a mind-boggling variety of scents and flavours to explore. Their Red Grape range is made from red grapes harvested from the Tuscan countryside of Palazzo Massaini (that’s an actual castle owned by the family behind Bottega Verde, by the way), and they’re prized for their antioxidant and anti-ageing properties, since they’re grown in a perfect climate.


No one likes hands that look older than you do, so hand cream is really key. Get the October edition of the NYLON Singapore x Vanity Trove Beauty Box, and get a tube of this one from Bottega Verde to try.
