When I got engaged I was obsessed with not only my looks (yes, get used to all eyes being on you) but wait for it, my hands.

Think about it - What's one of the first thing people ask? 'Let me see you ring!' and trust me you want them to be going 'Ohhhh' rather than 'Ugh'!

Even if the ring is a stunner it never fails to astound me how a badly pair of un manicured, wrinkly, un-moisturised hands can ruin what's meant to be a special moment. So get your manicure sorted of course,  but then make sure you maintain it!

No excuses now as luxury (yet still affordable) brand Molton Brown has just launched its first anti-bacterial hand duo of liquid hand wash and moisturiser in an irresistible Rok Mint scent which is guraenteed to leave your hands with a soft velvety feel - and yes, most certainly will add that extra wow factor to your ring!

Rok Mint fine liquid hand wash and Rok Mint smoothing hand lotion each £15.00, on sale in store Februrary 15; www.moltonbrown.co.uk
