**The Hand Cream**
This hand cream by Lavera is made with 100% natural ingredients, no artificial colours, scents, chemicals or preservatives. The manufacturer is against animal testing too which means that this hand cream can be used by strict vegan or vegetarian consumers.
The Lavera Neutral Intensive Hand Cream is presented in a white recyclable plastic tube. The tube has a twist off lid which also acts as a base for the tube. All product details, ingredients and other information can be found on the tube. I have to admit that if you were buying for aesthetically pleasing packaging only, this product would fall by the wayside as it is far from attractive or eye catching!
The hand cream is a rich creamy white coloured almost gel-like textured cream. It is rather thick in consistency and although takes a little longer than some other hand creams to rub in, it absorbs into the skin leaving it soft and smooth. The hand cream has no scent and is very gentle on the skin. It provides an excellent barrier against the myriad of damaging elements everyday life throws at our hands.
Lavera hand creams are suitable for all age groups and genders.
I suffer with contact dermatitis on my hands and was interested to read that Lavera Hand Cream has been tested on human subjects suffering from allergic skin conditions, sensitive skin, rosacea, and eczema
This is a little on the pricey side at around £7.00 for a 50ml tube in my local Health Food store, although I am sure savvy shoppers could probably find it cheaper on line!
The price is not an issue in my view, as anyone who has ever experienced the horrible, prickly, itchy feeling of dermatitis would pay almost anything for the instant relief that this hand cream seems to afford me!
**My Thoughts and Conclusion**
This hand cream has never irritated my skin in any way and it certainly does relieve the skin. It is also an excellent daily hand cream in my opinion. The cream absorbs well, leaves no sticky residue and does exactly what I expect it to. I have tried one or two other items in the Lavera hand cream range, but always return to this particular one as it is so good.
I am happy to recommend this hand cream to others and am awarding it a 5* rating.
Thank you for reading
