My New Favorite Tube Hand Cream

Hand creams can be tricky. They have to hydrate and heal the hands, but most of the truly effective creams leave a greasy residue. The ones that don’t often aren’t up to the task of really hydrating. You put the cream on only to feel dry ten minutes later. So, when I put this on, it seemed too good to be true.



Made with nutrient-packed plant oils and Hyaluronic Acid, you get long-lasting hydration. A blend of vitamins and omega fatty acids deliver restorative and protective benefits for more youthful-looking hands.

But the best thing about the Londontown Whipped Cloud Hand Cream is that it absorbs immediately… no greasy residue. Hours later my hands still felt soft and hydrated. At a very reasonable $18, this 2.5 oz hand cream is now a staple in my handbag.



  • The latest from Angela
I have been a beauty junkie for what seems like forever, but before I did anything about it, I went to law school. (Yes, my life is a little like the reverse of Legally Blonde.) Then, I worked as a prosecutor in Sonoma County after which I moved to the DC area with my husband in ’97. I served as Majority Counsel to the Senate Banking Committee followed by a year-long stint at a lobbying firm. You get the picture. It was then that I decided to act on my dream of becoming an entrepreneur. Finding my favorite beauty products proved to be impossible without stepping foot in a mall–the horror. So, I decided to bring my favorites to Alexandria. A few trips to New York and a flight to France and Bellacara was born in March 2000.
