WHAT IS IT?
This is a very intense hand cream for very dry skin, it is called a balm and you should buy it only if your hands are so dry they are causing you to have pain because it is too rich for use on skin that just feels like it is a little bit dry.
HOW DO YOU USE IT?
You apply it 2 or 3 times every day while your skin condition is present and massage it into your skin thoroughly.
WHAT I THINK
This is a product I would not have bought if I did not do a very silly thing and burn my hands on a hair relaxing chemical and when the burn healed it left my skin very dry, that was an effect of the chemical and my hands and fingers were cracked and very sore because the skin was so dry.
A doctor who is a friend said I should try this because she had used it herself and so I bought some, it works very good but it is not pleasing to use and it will not give effects immediate.
The balm is non greasy but it is thick like diluted Vaseline, I can feel how intense it is as soon as I apply it and it soothed the pain of my dry skin making the cracks in my fingers widen up. I was not in alot of pain but it was discomfort that upset me but this Hand Balm helped me very much and even though I thought it was unpleasant to use I carried on because I could see that my condition was getting a little bit better every few days and I was happy about that because my own doctor had said I would have to let the skin heal natural and he would give me only very weak creams.
I was glad to use Hand Balm because it made it feel like I was helping myself to get better and I know that I healed alot faster because of using this than if I had used only the moisturiser he gave to me on my prescription.
The balm stays on my hands for a long time and does not sink all the way in even if you use only a little bit, that does not make me happy but it is necessary I think to make the balm as protecting and moisturising as it can be.
This costs about £6 and it is value because one tube will last you for a very long time.
