Avoid cold-weather ravaged hands this winter with my top hand cream selection. We’ve all been there ; sore, chapped hands & flakey skin that have been walloped by the blustery elements and a good hand cream is the only antidote. I have picked a few of the best hands creams varying on price, ingredients, size and smell so there will be one for your pickings amongst this rabble.
Weleda Almond Sensitive Skin Hand Cream
The winner for sensitive skin. Sensitivity doesn’t just occur on the face, so this is the one which is perfect for those with sensitive and sore skin on the hands. It’s natural and non-reactive ingredients soothe and calm any irritation to leave your hands hydrated and feeling nourished without any synthetic fragrances or parabens. I don’t personally have sensitive skin but I absolutely love this hand cream and often use this in my kit as I know it will suit everyone.
This Works Energy Bank Hand Makeover
An instant airbrush for the hands. A great hand cream if you don’t want to just nourish the hands, but to also instantly make them look smoother, healthier & brighter too. Older ladies will love this as it just softens lines and imperfections instantly with a light blurring effect. You have to try it to believe it…..it really erm..works. Leaves only a very soft, yet pleasant/fresh scent on the skin.
Lanolips Intensive Rose Hand Cream
My absolute holy grail hand cream and one that I don’t see in the press enough. I absolutely love and swear by this product for ultra dry and chapped winter hands. The rich emollient cream absorbs into the skin in a zip, smells gorgeously rosey, is loaded with natural and high-grade ingredients including rose oil, shea butter, cocoa butter & the highest grade of medical lanolin ; In fact 1/4 of this cream is lanolin which just shows how potent it is. If you have dry hands and nothing is working you need this for your handbag. You’re welcome.
Jurlique Rose Hand Cream
A luxury entry as this is the most expensive ml for ml. This is a velvety rich cream that absorbs in beautifully and almost leaves a glove-like protectant on your hands. It is scented delicately with roses and quenches thirsty hands without fault. It is brimming with natural, plant and flower-based ingredients including rose (obvs), sweet almond oil, honey, marshmallow root & daisy flower.
Roger & Gallet Creme Sublime
It not just the skin on your face thats needs a daily SPF…your hands do to and this protective cream with SPF15 does just the job. Leaves a subtle scent of citrus and floral on the skin which smells fresh and light. This size is the perfect handbag and travel companion at just 30ml. Solid anti-ageing ingredients too including argan oil & evening primrose oil.
