*This is a review post. I was kindly sent some hand cream to try*
I wash my hands a LOT. I work with small children, and that can be messy, (and sometimes downright disgusting, let’s be honest) and as part of normal life, with cooking meals, keeping the house clean, and all the other things your hands do daily. My hands get very dry and as I now get a little older (ahem) I am starting to see signs of aging, too.
I have tried a number of hand creams and lotions over the years, especially when I was working as a nurse, and my hands were washed even more often, and there are a few I particularly like and will use as part of my daily routine. My husband and children will buy me the more expensive brand of hand care creams I like, for my birthday or mother’s day, because they know I like it and won’t usually splurge on myself.
I recently was asked to try out a hand cream, new to me.
Hand Chemistry Extreme Hydration Concentrate For well hydrated hands
“Ultra-concentrated hydration complex contains five hydration active technologies from marine and plant sources that provide deep and lasting hydration to the skin, offering dramatic visible textural improvements.
Our 360 degree approach to extreme hydration consists of Pseudoalteromonas Complex, Tremella Fuciformis, HA Pre-Cursor, Protective Shield Matrix and Maize Propanediol.
The Pseudoalteromonas Complex has a high moisturising and regenerating effect, and has shown a huge visible difference to skin texture in a matter of days.
Tremella Fuciformis is extremely hydrating and helps to deliver below surface hydration, whilst our HA Pre-Cursor encourages the skin to create its own hydration for long term hydration benefits.
The Protective Shield Matrix forms an invisible glove on the surface to ensure the skin retains its own moisture and protects it from extreme coldness whilst the Maize Propanediol offers instant hydration.”
The application advice says to use the cream. morning and evening, for ten days.
I have to say, after almost a week of using the cream, I was very impressed, and definitely notice an improvement in texture and condition of my skin. It feels like quite a heavy cream, when you apply it, but my skin seems to absorb it, probably because my hands are quite dry, so it didn’t feel greasy once it had absorbed. It seems like a really lovely intense treatment cream for dry hands that need a boost to get them into better condition.
I have to say I’ve neglected my hands, I’m always in & out of water during the day so they do get rough.
always have a small tube of hand cream to hand and use it regularly
honestly dont treat my hands too well, sometimes i’ll use coconut oil, I’m constantly washing my hands, they need help lol!
Keep some hang cream in each room!
i always use hand cream x
I use loads of coconut oil and a pair of cotton gloves. They come out silky soft!
I love coconut oil, it’s amazing stuff!
Anthing with Shea butter in
use hand cream
I use hand cream, especially on my wrists, which come out in a rash that’s itchy when they’re dry or I’m stressed xx
I always use hand cream.
Soak them in a bit of baby oil and warm water.
I put hand cream on at night when I feel they need a bit of looking after
I keep a hand cream on my window sill in the kitchen and apply it from time to time.
Nothing currently, I guess moisturiser would be the way to go
Give myself a hand massage 🙂
I use hand cream to try and get rid of the dryness!
I put hand cream and cotton gloves on before I go to bed.
put on some hand cream and wear gloves
I use a rich hand cream , as washing up and cleaning products make my hands so dry .
L’occitane lavender hand cream, great for the skin and smells amazing!
I use E45 cream for my dry hands but need a cream with moisture in it now
Moisturiser and overnight little white cotton gloves.
i have some hand creme that i keep in my bag, but thats about it really !
we have some gloves that we use over night that makes them softer
I lather on a really thick layer of good quality hand cream with at least 20% shea butter just before I switch off the light at night. After a few nights, most dryness and itchiness disappears.
I use soap and glory hand food
I turn to my bottle of Simple moisturiser, or Nivea on the really bad bits!
I slather on vaseline if they are really dry, I put cotton gloves on and sleep with them on to soften them if they get really dry.
Soap and glory hand cream and the occasional coconut oil overnight hand mask.
My hands get so sore in this cold weather, they really do need some TLC.
My hands are always dry and I often forget to apply hand cream but my lovely mum leaves a tube next to my soap dispenser in both the kitchen and bathroom to remind me to apply!
I lather my hands in hand cream and put on my little heated hand mits as this helps help them heal and recover from dry cracking skin.
I always have hand cream in the house and my bag
I use hand cream
Too be honest my hands are in a mess as im an engineer so in dire need of some lovely cream. Dont currently use any.
I’m ashamed to say I really don’t do much so I’d love this as my hands are getting dry!
I use Neutrogena Norwegian formula concentrated hand cream which is the best hand cream I have found for my hands so far 🙂
I rub vaseline in them and try and keep my gloves on.
I dont treat them aswel as I should, usually just put whatever handcream that I’ve got on them x
I usually just grab any cream after washing up.
i normally have a small tub of cream with me, as my hands dry out often
I’ve just discovered coconut oil so I’m using that thanks
I use zerobase every day.
I always have hand cream handy
when I am at home I regularly apply hand cream, but when I am working outside and it’s really muddy I tend to forget. My hands get very dry from constantly being wet and cold, so a cream that also includes a shield component would be very useful.
I quite often use coconut oil to give my hands a little TLC
Soap and glory hand cream is wonderful, I suffer with a skin condition on my hands and its really nice x
