Four for Hands

Hand Creams
Hello Everyone

So today I am back with an article which I thought was pretty good especially as the temperature outside in the UK has dropped suddenly. I have tweeted about this topic numerous times, as my hands at this time of year always suffer, and they feel horrible. Guaranteed somewhere on my person/or car, there will be some form of hand cream so I can continuously give my hands a good dose of hydration.Today I bring you four hand creams which all aim to hydrate your hands (and nails), but at varying costs to suit your budget.

Best for hand hygiene
Australian Bodycare Hand Cream (£9.99, 50ml from www.australianbodycare.com), contains 1% Tea-Tree Oil to help kill any bacteria, whilst also offering intensive nourishment for dry, cracked hands. Shea Butter and Argan Oil moisturise the skin, whilst Allantoin helps to reduce the signs of ageing. The multi-tasking hand cream is easily absorbed so won’t leave hands feeling greasy. The formula is a gentle and paraben- and perfume-free. 


Best for dry, chapped hands
Eau Thermale Avène Hand Cream with Cold Cream (£7.50, 75ml from Boots) is formulated with nourishing Cold Cream and Avène Thermal Spring Water. This luxurious, silky hand cream provides care and protection for dry, chapped and irritated hands. It also contains sucralfate, a powerful healing agent used in medical products which allows for rapid tissue regeneration.


Best for on a budget
Dr Organic Organic Virgin Coconut Oil Hand & Nail Cream (£5.99, 100ml from Holland & Barrett) is a fast absorbing, deeply hydrating and nutritious hand and nail cream formulated with a tropical blend of organic oils and fruit extracts,. The tropical bioactive formulation is a powerhouse of natural, long-lasting moisturising protection using Vitamin C and Vitamin E.

Best for ultra hydration
Trilogy Ultra Hydrating Hand Cream – (£12.50, 75ml from Trilogyproducts.co.uk) sinks rapidly into the skin, delivering instant intensive hydration and antioxidant protection for super smooth, super soft hands. With a deeply nourishing combination of marula and certified organic rosehip oils, Trilogy Ultra Hydrating Hand Cream also incorporates manuka honey to soften and protect.  Oat extract soothes dry or chapped skin, providing a natural barrier against moisture loss, while antioxidant-rich white tea extract rejuvenates skin and helps protect against free radical damage.

Out of the four brands, I have tried three of them (Avéne, Triology and Dr Organic), and I think the brand and their products are really good; do exactly what they advertise and claim, which of course is brilliant.

I hope you enjoyed this post and found it useful.

Stay warm (and safe)
