Hand creams – a winter essential …

I use hand creams all year round, but find I need them even more though the cold winter months, as my does tend to be on the dry side.

The following hand creams vary in price and so there is one to suit every pocket.

SUPERDRUG STRENGTHENS NAILS AND MOISTURISES HANDS £1.99

This is a lovely, light cream that is very easily absorbed into the skin and it contains Pro-Vitamin B5 and Sweet Almond Oil.  It doesn’t leave the hands greasy at all and does not have a strong smell.  A great bargain at £1.99.

AVEENA DAILY MOISTURISING HAND CREAM £3.45

PALMER’S COCOA BUTTER FORMULA CONCENTRATED CREAM £1.57

This product is slightly heavier than the previous hand creams and takes a little longer to be absorbed into the skin.  It is very rich and if you suffer from very dry hands during the cold weather then I think this would be a great cream to carry around in your handbag.

NEAL’S YARD BEE LOVELY HAND CREAM £10.00

This has the most gorgeous smell of orange and honey.  A great product, but on the more pricey end of the scale.  A favourite, and it also raises money to save our bee population. Yay!

KIEHL’S ULTIMATE STRENGTH HAND SALVE £12.60

This is a great cream.  I use it every night as it is currently residing next to my bed.  It is quite a thick and oily cream, but just before bed I feel it can do its job in moisturising my hands.  It smells of eucalyptus, so if you are not keen on the smell, then maybe this one is not for you.  A great cream if your hands are really suffering.

CLARINS HAND AND NAIL TREATMENT CREAM £21.00

My all time favourite hand cream is the Clarins Hand and Nail Treatment Cream.  It smells divine and it really makes a difference to the condition of my hands.  If I want to buy a gift or treat a friend then this is what I would get. Pricey but worth it in my opinion.

I probably shouldn’t buy any hand creams for a while as I now have quite a few to use up!

Hoping you all have a great week and are not getting too stressed with all the Christmas shopping.
