Liz Earle Hand Repair
Advantages: absorbs quickly, great mosturisation, massages easily
Disadvantages: expensive, p & p charges
I am allergic to many soaping agents, nickel, chemicals etc. If my hands touch certain cleaning products, depilatory creams etc. or my hands spend to long in hot soapy water or handling loose change they react really badly.
I have always used cortisone cream once a reaction has occurred and stayed well away from hand creams as I believed they might cause more problems than they would help. About a year ago when I bought a TSV on QVC of Liz Earles products I received a small tube of her hand repair. On the show she mentions that her products do not aggravate eczema etc. so I thought if I'm going to try hand cream this would be a great one to start with.
On opening the tube the smell of the essential oils hits you straight away, the thin white cream dispenses easily and a blob about the size of a 10 pence piece is enough to cover both hands front and back.
As you massage the cream in and around the hands and fingers it dries in almost instantly and does not leave any sign of a greasy residue behind. No running about flapping your hands trying to encourage it to sink in and let you get on with your work. My hands plump up and look moisturized immediately and I have never suffered from any reaction to the contents.
Since discovering hand repair, anytime I have a reaction I have only needed to put cortisone cream on twice and then used the hand repair to encourage the red, itchy, sore patches to heal and now always add it to my order when buying my cleanse and polish etc.
The cream is made from natural ingredients and anti-oxidants including bergamont for healing and soothing, Beta-Carotene an anti-oxidant, hops, glycerin, echinacea and more with lavender, chamomile oils for fragrance
150ml pump - £19.00
100ml pump - £14.25
50ml tube - £8.50
As one of my nieces is currently taking her nursing training and was complaining about her dried out sore hands from constantly having to wash her hands and use special wipes, I passed my last 15ml hand repair (yet another TSV) onto her and she has raved about it, particularly how fast it sinks into her skin compared to the other hand creams which she has been trying. She is now a convert and carries this with her every day and plans to order the full size one.
Sinks in immediately
Easy to dispense
Heals and moisturizes hands
Expensive compared to other manufacturers
You need to order more than one hand repair or other product to make the p & p hurt a little less.
Can't be bought in the high street
Available from www.lizearle.com, her shop on the Isle of Wight or QVC.
Summary: The best hand cream for sensitive hands.
