The minute after I have washed my hands they feel dried out and stripped of moisture and so I have to have hand cream in my handbag / car / kitchen / desk at work (you get the idea)
I bought this Johnson's "24 hour moisture" hand cream in Boots and the 50ml tube cost me around £1.20 which I didn't think was too bad at all. Plus, I only wanted a cheap one to keep in my desk draw at work.
The cream comes in a pale pink plastic tube which has a matching pink plastic flip top lid. The flip top is easy enough to open and close.
The cream is thick white and is only very mildly scented (although I have recently been using strong L'Occitane and Body Shop creams so maybe I have been spoilt by those). The cream does feel a little greasy at first and once I have rubbed it into my hands, I try not to touch my face or hair straight away as my hands then feel a little greasy.
It soaks in after a few minutes though and my hands do feel immediately nourished and moisturised.
I am not sure if the "24 hour moisture" name is meant to imply that one dose will keep you moisturised all day long, or if it means that this is a nice cream to use (regularly) morning, noon and night, but if it is the former, I cannot agree.
I generally apply this every 3 hours or so and it works well for me.
Item: Johnson's 24 hour moisture had cream
Bought in: Body Care
I've always had a hand cream either in my desk drawer at work or in the bathroom cabinet at home, as you never know when dry hands will strike. So far there hasn't been one that I have loved so much that I have stuck with it. There have been some good and bad ones along the way so here is a review of one of them.
This hand cream comes in a tube that sits on its lid. It is pink. The same colour of pink as the baby range of Johnsons products. The tube and lid both have a lovely iridescent shimmer to them and overall it has a nice soothing look to it. Tube is soft and easy to squeeze the cream out and the lid has a decent click to it to get it open, so is relatively secure so long as nothing heavy presses on it. The details across the front of the tube tell you that it is "Johnson's body care. 24 hour moisture hand cream. Hands feel soft, even after washing." There is a faint pink leaf on the bottle too but I think they could do without this as I had to look at it a few times before I decided it was a feather and it really just looks like a printing error. The back of the tube has details on ingredients and head office contact details and again tells you that your hands will feel soft even after washing. I like the look of this tube but I am a girly girl at heart and do like pink things. If you don't like pink things or you are a manly man I don't imagine this would appeal to you, so they are possibly limiting their appeal with this extremely pink packaging.
For this particular hand cream I squeeze out enough cream to cover the tip of my middle finger and rub it in to the palm of the opposite hand. I then rub both palms together and rub over the whole of both hands. Paying particular attention to any extra dry areas of skin. This cream take around 30-40 seconds to dry in and at first does feel quite greasy (even though it says it is non greasy) but that mostly goes away within the next minute. After this you are left with a slightly waxy feel to your skin and I do see that my computer key board get a sheen over it so it does have a residue.
Does it moisturise my hands?
Yes. After I use this my hands do quickly feel smoother and softer and there is no tightness in them anymore. I don't really get chapped or cracked hands, just dry from the weather and house chores so don't need a strong hand cream, but for that level I do feel this cream does the job.
This cream initially smells exactly like Johnson's baby creams. But after it dries in it has quite a fragranced scent, similar to lily of the valley or that kind of perfume. Not unpleasant but a little unexpected.
Also worth a mention:
This cream states that it keeps your hands "looking and feeling soft even after washing", this is probably because it is quite hard to fully wash off and makes your hands a bit water proof. Even after giving them a good soapy wash my hands don't quite dry under the hand dryer that well, they feel they have film over them. If I dry with a towel it is OK as it seems to wipe that off, but under the hand dyer it will take you longer than usual to dry your hands.
As this cream leaves behind a small residue and has a bit of a waxy feel I will take 1 star off for that. 4 stars on as it does the job, comes in a nice package but doesn't have a wow factor to get it full 5 stars.
Do not be fooled by the 24 hour claim that this product makes as it certainly does not last for 24 hours on the back of one single application. Having said that given the fact that this is not an expensive product having to use it more than once a day is not really a big deal. A 75ml bottle retails around the £2 mark and the fact that you only need to use a small amount means that a bottle does last a decent amount of time.
One of the most impressive things about this product is the fact that you need only a small disc of cream, about the size of a penny and this is enough for both hands. The product comes in a flip top bottle with the top also acting as the base to stand it upon when not in use, this also means the contents are always near the top so you do not have to do lots of squeezing. in fact when it is full hardly any pressure is requires as otherwise you will end up with too much cream. The cream itself is thick and runny with not real odour to it.
I do find this to be very good when my hands have dried out and become a bit chapped as it has a very soothing effect and it certainly hydrates my hands effectively. It provides a nice level of nourishment and my hands feel soft and supple after using this. It absorbs into the skin rapidly and is not greasy or sticky and my hands feel dry to the touch after I have rubbed it in completely.
It does last a reasonable amount of time, I find myself reapplying it in the afternoon so I would not exactly call it a 24 hour product however it does depend how much washing and cleaning I have been doing. If I wear it on a day when I'm out and about and the weather is not very cold then it does last the day I guess but still not quite 24 hours as it states in the product name.
I would buy this again as it is well priced and the overall quality of the product is good.
I find my hands get really dry especially after I washed them or used some anti-bacterial gel so it is essential for me to always have some hand cream on standby. I have some in my handbag, in my bathroom, in my living room and in my car of all different varieties and this is one of them! I have numerous handbags and often switch around what I use, but have a good 3 or 4 tubes of hand cream laying around in different bags, and this Johnson's cream is an oldy but a goody that has been in my everyday bag for absolutely ages now!
*** About the lotion ***
This Johnson's 24 Hour Moisture Hand Cream comes in light pink tube packaging, and is a described as a clean feeling lotion for healthy, soft skin. It comes in a flip top tube which can stand upside down but since it's in my bag it really just gets chucked about so makes no difference! It is a runny, thick lotion which pretty much reminds me of johnson's baby lotion but in a tube! It is easy to squeeze out and a blob about the size of a 5p coin is enough to cover my palms and outer hand. In the tube version I have it is easy to squeeze out as it is top down and apply liberally.
*** My Opinion ***
I use this lotion on my hands and it is a decent product that nourishes my hands brilliantly. It doesn't leave my hands greasy, sticky or clammy afterwards so it absorbs into my skin quickly and my hands feel soft. The tube states it is meant to reduce skin tightness, reduce skin roughness and refresh dull looking hands. My hands aren't particularly rough anyway (according to my dad that means I haven't ever done any real hard work in my life!) but I find it leaves my hands supple and probably helps prevent the roughness to make an appearance! It says in the name it is 24 hour moisture and I do think this is a bit of a stretch as I can use this in the morning and later in the day need to moisturise my hands again. I have used The Body Shop Hemp Hand Protector and this is the only product I'd actually swear by to moisturise my hands for a really long length of time.
Overall, it is a decent priced product for a basic use as a hand cream. It smells nice, but not more outstanding compared to other brands on the market and is pretty much just baby lotion in a tube! However it does the job and I have no complaints so will give it 4 stars - dropping one star as "24 hour moisture" is a bit misleading!
~Johnson's Hand Cream~
This hand cream is said to offer 24 hour moisture. Johnson's claim that your hands will be left feeling soft even after washing them. This hand cream contains skin conditioners, softening oils and a natural moisturiser. Dullness, flakiness and tightness are targeted.
This hand cream is presented in a feminine looking pink tube with a flip top cap. The tube can be recycled once empty.
~Price and Availability~
A 75ml tube of this hand cream is available from Boots priced at £2.05.
I have dry hands so rely on hand creams to keep them looking good. My collection of hand creams has grown over the past year as I cannot resist a bargain. I bought a 50ml tube of this Johnson's hand cream when I spotted it in my local Tesco at just 50p. I love all things pink so the packaging appealed to my girly side!
I use hand cream a few times a day normally as I have a bit of an OCD with washing my hands. When I don't use it, I start to notice excess dry patches and general soreness. It gets worse in the Winter so a good hand cream is a must for me. This hand cream has a pleasant consistency - thick and soft to the touch. A small blob of sufficient to coat my hands in a nice even layer of hand cream.
This hand cream feels really soft on my skin but doesn't have the same cooling or soothing effect as other hand creams I own. This hand cream doesn't take long to absorb into my hands but does leave a slightly tacky feeling for a few minutes so isn't practical to apply when I am on the go. This hand cream has a nicely perfumed but subtle scent - quite powdery smelling with a sweet floral undertone.
Once the tacky feeling has subsided, my hands are left feeling soft to the touch. I wouldn't say that the results are as good as with more expensive hand creams but there is a noticeable improvement in the dry patches and my hands are left feeling comfortable. The scent lingers for a short while. I wouldn't say that the effects of this hand cream last 24hours. I suffer mainly with the dryness on the palms of my hands and do find that they start to feel slightly rough again after a few hand washes. Around my nails and the top part of my hand feels really soft most of the day.
I would say that this hand cream is quite basic compared to other, slightly more expensive hand creams. It seems to work more effectively on the less dry areas but isn't intensive enough for my dry palms to make use of on a regular basis. My tube has lasted well and it is a well priced hand cream but I prefer something a bit more moisturising.
Thanks for reading :)
As I work in a hospital where I am constantly washing my hands, I get dry hands very easily. I find my knuckles and the sides of my fingers are the worst affected areas, so I am always buying hand cream to try and put some life back into my hands.
I bought this one from Asda a while ago and paid £2 for a 75ml tube. The cream comes in a nice feminin pink silky soft looking tube that looks nice in anyones bathroom. The tube is small enough to be able to find into my handbag to take to work so I can moisturise my hands on my breaks. The cream itself has a gorgeous smell, classical of Johnson's products.
After just the first use, my hands were left feeling soft, smooth and hydrated which they were desperately craving. I applied extra product to my problem areas of my knuckles and sides of my fingers, and with minimal rubbing in, the product was absorbed nicely. My hands didn't feel greasy after applying this hand cream, unlike some other hand creams I have tried in the past. As some parts of my hands are a bit cracked, I was also concerned that this product might make my hands sting, but it didn't at all.
The hand cream claims to provide 24 hour moisture, so the only disadvantage to this product, is that I found this isn't true. But as it works everytime I use it, this claim doesn't really bother me that much. The ingredients in the hand cream are:
Aqua , Glycerin , Petrolatum , Paraffinum Liquidum , Dimethicone , Cetyl Alcohol , Distarch Phosphate , Carbomer , Caprylyl Glycol , Squalane , Glyceryl Oleate , Ceteareth-6 , Stearyl Alcohol , p-Anisic Acid , Disodium EDTA , Sodium Citrate , Sodium Hydroxide , Phenoxyethanol , Parfum .
Overall, I would definitely recommend this hand cream to anyone who wants to put a bit of moisture and love back into their hands. It smells gorgeous, feels fantastic and in my opinion is a good price as you only need a small amount of product.
==Johnson's Body Care - 24 Hour Moisture Hand Cream==
I really do tend to go through a lot of hand cream in a year and because of this I will try out all sorts of different makes and types and not really tend to stick to a particular brand because I like to try new things and grab which ever tube is on special offer.
This tube of Johnson's was actually in my local Poundland store and seeing it was a branded product that was a mere £1 I thought I would snap up a couple so that I had one spare if it were any good (or to give as a present).
For £1 you get a 50ml tube of product that comes housed within a nice soft pink tube. The tube is a good one as it stands on the lid and makes it easy to dispense the product inside and the softness of the plastic means that when it came to getting the last dregs out I was able to slice the top off and dig around for the stacks of cream that was still clinging to the sides.
The bottle states on the front that "Hands feel soft, even after washing" and that the cream is "Blended with skin conditioners, a natural moisturiser and softening oil" I must admit I was a bit sceptical that it would actually last for 24 hours but seeing as it was a Johnson's product I did have higher hopes that a non-branded hand cream.
The product inside the bottle is a thick white cream which has a very nice yet subtle aroma to it. The cream rubs in well and doesn't leave hands feeling sticky or tacky in the least. Although it soaks in well without leaving a residue it does leave the hands feeling protected and definitely less dry feeling after washing them or doing the washing up though that said I would still opt to apply more of the cream after putting my hands in any water.
The smell it gives off is a clean and fresh one with a hint of floral in there and it does give off the usual Johnson's product feel about it. It is not over powering and the aroma does indeed disappear after a minute or two of applying the hand cream unless you put the hands directly to the nose and then the fresh smell is still there.
The cream does last a good while on the skin of my hands and does make then feel nourished and protected. I can't say that it last 24 hours and I would tend to reapply throughout the day as and when my dry old hands needed it. Certainly one application is not enough to last for the entire day.
All in all I have to say that this is a really good product and for the £1 I paid for it I am glad that I decided to buy two tubes and they have actually lasted a good amount of time as a pea sized amount seems to be good enough to cover the hands nicely. I think if I were to see this product again in Poundland I would certainly be snapping up a fair few bottles and I wouldn't even mind paying that little bit more for it as it is a very good hand cream worthy of a top 5 out of 5 star rating and a high recommendation.
I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you
Many thanks for taking the time to read.
It is that time of year where my skin can start to suffer. It can generally become a bit dry and in need of a bit of help to keep looking healthy. The combination of working outside with horses and working in an office with air conditioning (it is never warm in my office!) is that my hands can suffer quite badly and become really quite dry which is horrible especially as it seems that people notice what your hands look like especially when you are meeting clients and shaking their hands!
In a bid to combat my dry skin on my hands I decided to carry a hand cream basically wherever I go. So at the yard I have one, a small one in my bag and on my desk at work so I can constantly keep my hands moisturised. The hand cream currently on my desk at work is the Johnsons 24 Hour Moisture Hand cream. Chosen partly because it was on offer and partly because Johnsons is a well known brand which does make good products which in my opinion do work!
Johnsons 24 Hour Moisture Hand Cream is their first hand cream which they have designed to be formulated to help keep your hands soft and smooth all day long. The hand cream contains softening oils which help keep your skin smooth and to also last for quite some time or in Johnsons' own words "all day long".
The hand cream comes in a slightly pearlescent pale pink slim tube which is rather girly and feminine! On the front of the tube there is an image of a delicate feather which I'm guessing means the hand cream is light and gentle to the touch! There is the Johnsons logo together with the product name. On the back there is the usual blurb and extensive list of ingredients together with contact information should you need it.
The cream itself is white in colour has has a mediumish consistency. Once squeezed out of its tube because of its consistency it does manage just stay where you have applied the cream which is good as I cannot stand really runny hand creams/lotions. If you smell the hand cream it does have a delicate, soft almost floral aroma which is perfectly pleasant and nice and subtle. The delicate fragrance also manages to linger around for a while on your skin too.
Johnson's promise that the cream can last all day long, but does it really? For me, no it doesn't I find myself having to re-apply it every time I wash my hands or every few hours or so I am having to pop open the top and squeeze a bit of cream on my hands but despite this I can tell after a few hours that I still have the feeling of hand cream so it doesn't disappear completely which is good but only applying it once won't last all day even though Johnson's do claim that it can with stand hand washing!
A pet hate of mine is when a hand cream doesn't absorb properly and I hate that greasy feeling that the only way of getting rid of it is by either washing your hands or wiping them on a cloth (or clothing!). However, I was pleased to find that this hand cream absorbs almost instantly and doesn't leave behind any greasy residue whatsoever. Although, as mentioned above you can tell that you have hand cream on but it isn't a greasy feeling at all. I have found out though that you do only need to use a very small amount because if you use too much then this is when the cream isn't absorbed easily and your hands do feel a little sticky and almost wet for a while.
So does this actually work? Well, since using the hand cream my hands have been a lot softer and not looking so dry and I can put it down to using this cream as I do apply it on a regular basis throughout the day. I can suffer with sensitive skin on my hands and this hasn't irritated the skin at all which is even better. I really cannot find fault with this hand cream although it doesn't last all day long for me because it is absorbed within seconds it isn't a hassle to apply regularly
Overall, a definite recommendation from me! 5 stars!
~ Useful Info ~
Price: From £2 (£2.09 - Boots Dec 2011)
Dry hands - the result of lack of care and attention to our mitts! Long baths, cold weather, skin irritations, too much washing up are all factors which can cause our hands to feel wilted or like sandpaper. Either way, it's not pleasant and is certainly not glamorous! From my previous reviews you will see all things moisturising are a popular topic, and this is because apart from suffering from dry skin - moisturising is key to anti-aging, and making sure the skin has been given a good drink.
I initially bought Johnson's 24 moisture hand cream for my Mum as part of her Mother's day hamper I put together, before also buying it for myself. The packaging is a pretty pink, and of course Johnson's is a trusted brand in skincare - two factors which I found hard to resist. The price was also in my opinion a steal - at around the £2 mark, for a 50ml tube.
I tend to be quite over generous when applying my beauty products and handcream is no exception. I dread to think how many products I have been through over the years! So, what is important is not only value for money, but a product which goes along by
being easy to distribute across the skin, and also doesn't require the whole tube to relieve dryness.
Johnsons 24 Hour Moisture Hand Cream is a soft balm designed to leave hands feeling soft and moisturised. Johnsons 24 Hour Moisture Hand Cream combines skin conditioners, natural moisturiser, and softening oil- and soaks in to boost 24 hour hydration.Johnsons 24 Hour Moisture Hand Cream helps stop the 3 signs of dryness:
* Reduce skin tightness
* Reduce skin roughness
* Refresh dull looking hands.
What I really like about Johnson's 24 hour hand cream, is that a small splodge is enough to work into the hands and it sinks in quickly too. There is also no greasiness whatsoever - a pet hate with handcreams as it makes it impossible to do anything. Yes, you can get moisturising mits for the more intensive/greasier handcreams - but could you really see yourself doing the weekly shop wearing them?!! This is why I like a nice, easy, soft and gentle handcream which leaves my hands feeling soft - not greasy.
The cream itself is white, not pink as you may imagine from the packaging! It has a very light consistency - certainly not runny, yet easy to rub in and distribute across all areas of the hands. It has a fragrant smell to it, not synthetic but quite floral, mixed with a whiff of fabric softener.
Perhaps the one aspect some may find off-putting - is this really is a girly product, in packaging, smell (only faint in all fairness) and marketing. I realise that brands such as Nivea try and appeal to both sexes by throwing "hand SOS" on the front - but guys this is one product probably best left for Mothers and Girlfriends!
I would say this product is for average and moderately dry or sensitive skin. If you are using it because you have incredibly dry hands, then it may be best using or mixing this product with a Dermatological moisturiser, which is more medically suited to repairing the skin. If you are using as just a regular part of your beauty regime though, or hands are only slightly dry/cracked I would say this product is a worthy purchase.
Overall, I think this handcream is the type of product that's absolutely fantastic to put on before bed. When I do this, I wake up with beautifully soft hands. I also like doing this because it gives the cream 8 or so hours to sink in without being washed off so it can really get to work. Having said that, my hands still feel reasonably soft if I apply the handcream during the day and then wash my hands. Price wise, it's almost unbeatable compared with rival brands so if you are looking for a cheaper option I'd certainly recommend it to you on all fronts, even if the guys might find it a bit too girly!
Anyone who suffers from dryness of the hands will understand the discomfort that course, dry skin can cause, particularly around the finger tips and nails, which left untreated can result in the affected areas becoming chapped, tender and/or painful. Being blessed with fine weather over the past month has meant I have been frequenting the garden more often, tidying, digging, weeding, planting and the like. Ravished by constant washing and scrubbing of soil and dirt from my skin combined with the drying effects of hand soap left my hands excessively dry with a dull appearance and my current moisturiser, although very good has been unable to provide me with suitable hydration.
Popping into my local Boots I found the 24 Hour Moisture hand cream that Johnson's claim will "rapidly boost hydration using softening oils and conditioners" so after a cheeky sample I decided to buy. Instantly recognisable as a Johnson's product by the soft pink slightly iridescent packaging, clearly marketed towards woman the tube is incredibly easy to use. The flip lid at the base allows the product to stand for easy storage while the click to lock feature means you can not only open with ease but also lock tightly to ensure the contents won't spill out and a small opening allows control whilst dispensing. The only downside being the gunk that collects around the lid opening, although a problem not exclusive to this product. A 50ml tube, a modest size that will fit inconspicuously into any hand bag set me back £2.03, a price I though to be reasonable although if the choice was available I would prefer a larger size.
Due to the poor condition of my hands on my first application I used a fairly generous amount of cream, an almost ten pence sized blob to be precise. White/pink in colouring with a soft, subtle fragrance that's almost perfumey or floral and lasts for a good hour or so. The cream has a reasonably thick consistency that feels silky and soft. I massaged the rich formula into the hands paying close attention to the finger tips where most of the dryness was situated and without having to continually rub, the cream was quickly and easily absorbed with no sticky after effects. For the first couple of days of usa I re-applied every three hours or so and gradually the condition of my dry skin improved.
The hand cream has proven to be effective at reducing my otherwise minor ailments, although any effects that I witnessed were not as instant as I would have liked, it took a good couple of days of regular use before I witnessed a significant changes. After my first application my hands did feel hydrated and there was a noticeable softness, particularly to the backs of my hand and knuckles. My skin did feel well moisturised but the general effects were nothing extraordinary. My fingers were soothed but within fifteen or so minutes they felt dry and rough again. After a couple of days the dryness had all but cleared up and my hands were in a much better condition but I just don't think that this cream is powerful enough to deliver the instant results that Johnson's claim it should.
Personally I really like this hand cream but I would only recommend as an extra precaution to protect from the elements and for general use if your hands are already in a reasonable condition . If like me, your skin is very dry this cream will probably not be intensive enough to deliver the significant results you need. I will however continue to use this product from time to time happy in the knowledge that it will provide me with light and decent enough results but I just can't rely on it to deliver effective relief for my dry chapped hands.
My hands are always getting really dry. I have tried different hand creams and none have made any difference to the condition of my skin. I feel that my hands are tired from the amount of time I spend sat at the computer doing work, and the amount of time I spend using my hands writing etc. When I was spending a weekend with my family my nan gave me this as a present, which I thought was nice as she knew I suffer if dry skin. I applied a pea sized amount (as instructed) onto my palm and massaged in, there was instant moisture. Every five minutes I was feeling my hands, they were so soft. I just couldn't believe I hadn't come across this product before. I spoke to my mum and told her that the hand cream had worked and that the long search was finally over.
I think this was typical from Johnsons as they are constantly supplying me with good beauty product that never fail to impress. I had seen the adverts for the new body care range but had ignored it as I made a promise to myself: do not be reeled in by the flashing lights of retail! I instantly knew that this was going to be a regular part of my beauty routine and a constant accessory in my handbag. I hate having dry skin as, not only is it depressing but it is uncomfortable. I have found that you can use it on your face for the same effect, although the bottle does say not to (rebel!)
The product is 50ml of useful moisturiser. However, I have noticed a disadvantage of this product: it doesn't last 24 hours as the bottle says, but then again how many long lasting products actually are longlasting? Not many I think, although some may disagree.
I think that with most moisturisers you have to used a lot to see an effect, but with this a small amount will cause the desired effect: super smooth soft skin.
I listen to myself saying this and think: It can't be that good? But I honestly recommend it to anyone because it simply does what it says on the bottle. Thesedays, you see a lot of brands promising big things for small prices, but let us face it: if it's cheap don't expect miracles. This product is available from most beauty stockists, including: Boots, Superdrug and Supermarkets. I asked my nan, and she bought this from Boots for £2.49 when it was first released, which is good value, I feel. The product lasts for around two hours, maintaining a soft finish on your skin throughout. I think that the only thing some people may see as a disadvantage is the price. But honestly, if you try it( I think free samples of this product come in some magazines) you'll totally think that it is worth it. Thank you for reading my review

My Shampoo, moisturiser, hand cream - there is no end to the amount of womens products that my Builder Bear husband will use in his attempts to embrace male grooming without actually buying any! His current problem - cracked, dry hands - is not nice for the lady or children in his life!
My lovely mother brought me a tube of Johnsons 24 hour moisture hand cream as a pity purchase as she realised I had run out of hand cream again. With my chlidren I have found Johnsons products drying but this product is wonderful on all age groups. It has that beauftiful signature Johnsons smell, light baby powder plus a slightly more grown up floral smell that is sweet but not overpowering and quickly dies down after application. Alot goes a long way with this little tube, so it provides good value for money. The cream is soft and silky and is absorbed with ease -even on the roughest of paws! There is no everlasting greasy residue that requires you to wipe your hands relentlessly for the next 10 mins and it really does the job. Banished are the dry husband hands, gone are my washing up related dry patches leaving smooth, silky and nourished hands - fit for a hand model, if only my nails were better!!
I will be buying this product in the future to keep my hands looking lovely.
I suffer with quite dry skin on my hands and no matter which hand cream I use it only has a temporary effect. Because of this, I tend to go through a heck of a lot of hand lotion/cream as I apply it regularly throughout the day. Although I have tried various different brands, the one I most often keep in my bag these days is Johnson's 24 hour Moisture Hand Cream..
The first thing that attracted me to this particular product was the size of the tube; although it is a standard sized 50ml, it is quite slimline and has a dinky quality to it that makes it perfect for keeping in my bag.
The packaging is quite attractive in the fact that it comes in a baby pink tube with the writing in the famous blue font on the front. The vessel has a flip open lid at the base and this is where you access the cream. Also just to mention; the lid is flat, so if required the tube can be stored in an upright position if you so wish.
As mentioned this comes available in a 50ml tube and the average price seems to be around the £1 mark. I bought my tube from Superdrug where it's RRP is 99p and it seems to be of a similar price at most other stores.
This hand cream promises "..24 hour moisture and says hands will feel soft even after washing.." but would it really live up to all of that?
My experience of this product~
As mentioned in the first paragraph, I use hand cream regularly throughout the day to counteract the drying effects of everyday life such as harsh weather conditions and 'housewife hands'. Although it was initially the cute baby pink packaging that drew me towards this I did like what it promised - that it would keep my hands feeling soft even after they were washed. I've never used a hand cream that has promised this before so I was more intrigued than anything and the fact it cost less than £1 was a bonus.
Using the cream for the first time was a real pleasure as once the lid was opened I found it very easy to disperse the contents into the palm of my hands. The consistency is only an average texture which did make me question it's capability but I needn't have worried.
The cream absorbed into my skin quite quickly - though not instantly - and I could feel the effects as soon as it had penetrated my skin. My hands suddenly felt velvety soft and silky and any sign of dryness was banished.
The scent this leaves on the skin is intoxicating in the fact it is just like most johnson's products and has that wonderful clean 'baby' smell. My hands felt soft and supple and not greasy at all so I was instantly impressed on my first encounter.
As I first used this before midday, my hands were soon in and out of water and to a degree it does leave hands fairly soft, but don't be under any illusions hands won't feel dry again as it that aspect isn't totally spot on.
I can't comment totally on the 34 hour moisture claim as my hands are forever in and out of water and cream being reapplied, but I don't think my hands would feel super soft a full 24 hours later.
This isn't the best hand cream in the world by any means but it certainly isn't the worst. It absorbs into the skin satisfactorily and leaves hands soft and smelling lovely so the positives far outweigh the negatives. That aside the only real negative is the absorbency time as it takes a while to rub in, but for 99p it's well worth trying and as this is now my second tube I'm using it can't be that bad can it?
This is I think the last in my series in hand creams, I think I have reviewed all the other ones, so until I try something new, this is it for now. I actually was not aware of this cream's existence until I came on here to check out Neutrogena's Norweigan Hand Cream and someone mentionned this within their review.
Anyway I went to buy the Neutrogena and saw this on the shelf priced at a very reasonable 99p, normal price £1.99. As what what I had read had been of a positive nature and bearing in mind the price, it went straight in the basket.
It comes in a very sweet and feminine pale pink tube with a mid-pink flip lid at the base. It promises that hands will feeel soft even after washing. It is a 50ml tube. The cream is white and though it is not stated as frangranced, it has a lovely fresh cream smell that I suspect might be present in all of Johnson's products and is reminiscent of their baby products.
The cream is fantastically easy to use, it absorbs quickly and easily into the skin and it does not leave a greasy film on the hands as some creams do. It relieves the soreness of dry skins without a problem and you can really feel the moisture being returned to the skin. It claims to make hands feel soft eve after washing but as with all hand creams, it does acutally need re-applying after washing one's hands.
This isn't my favourite cream, that honour belongs to Nivea SOS, becuase it is thicker, but this is a very good runner-up and particulary at the price it is a real winner. Worth buying at half or full price!
Having really sensitive skin, I tend to get patches of really dry or sore skin, sometimes on my hands. So I was looking for a really moisturising product that would keep my hands soft, and at the same time not irritate them further.
So, whilst browsing the shelves of Boots I came across this product, which not only promises to moisturise your hands, but to keep them moisturised, which sounds pretty brilliant. I bought the smallest bottle for around £1 and tried it on immediately.
The cream felt different to any other hand cream that I had used before as it had the texture and consistency more like a hair conditioner than a conventional hand cream. This meant that it was absorbed by my skin really quickly so I didn't have to walk around without touching anything for 10 minutes and it wasn't greasy at all which made a really nice change.
This really did moisturise my hands didn't irritate at all which was great. I would definitely recommend this product.
