Oooh, yes, it’s definitely fall where I am and so I’m reaching more for my favourite hand and foot creams, in this case the Caudalie Foot Beauty Cream ($20), and the Caudalie Hand and Nail Cream ($20).  Both have luxurious texture – watery at first, but then creamy and moisturizing without being greasy.
