Once upon a time (in 2004 to be exact) a group of very wise girls made the rule that on Wednesday's We Wear Pink. Okay, so maybe they weren’t the wisest bunch, but we’d be lying if we said we weren’t totally on board with a day devoted to one of our very favorite colors. Here in 2017, millennial pink has reigned supreme, but we’re here to remind you that all things pink—especially when it comes to beauty products—deserve a little love. And that’s precisely why we’ve rounded up ten of our favorite pink beauty products to make every Wednesday just a little bit brighter. Enjoy!

H2O+ Lemongrass Vetiver On The Move Intense Hand Cream

So often ladies focus so much time on moisturizing their face and their bodies that they forget all about how important it is to keep your hands highly hydrated, too. Like your face and neck, your hands are one the first places that your body begins to show the signs of aging and the best way to combat those effects are by pumping up the moisture to keep fine lines and wrinkles from forming. This lemongrass scented hand cream will do just the trick. Created with Shea Butter and Lemon Peel Oil and Avocado Oil, you can expect your hands do be perfectly conditioned any time of day.
