I use hand cream daily and will always have several on the go at any one time, with one at home, one in my drawer at work and a small one in my handbag. I would say that I probably apply hand cream about three times a day on average, and more so if the weather is particularly cold. This Neutrogena concentrated cream is my current one which I am using at work and it really is a nice rich hand cream and is one of my favourites.
This hand cream smells clean and fresh without being too overpowering. It is dermatologically approved so is suitable for sensitive skin and for daily use. Neutrogena have been making hand cream and other products for many years and they are a well known and trusted brand and I remember my mom using this product many years ago.
This comes in a 75ml white tube with a flip top and the opening is wide enough to squeeze a decent amount of cream with just one squeeze. The tube contains the usual list of ingredients and instructions for use and the cream itself is white in colour and it feels very rich and creamy without feeling greasy or sticky at all. You can also get this hand cream in larger and smaller sizes so there should be one suitable for everyone.
To use I will squeeze a blob onto the back of my hand around the size of a five pence piece and find that this is usually plenty to rub into both hands. I will make sure that I rub it down between my fingers which sometimes get a bit cracked in the cold weather. It absorbs quickly without too much rubbing and my hands feel soft and moisturised. I have never had any residue left on my hands or felt that I can't touch anything afterwards without leaving behind any remnants of cream and I am able to put my gloves on straight afterwards.
I bought this cream for £1.00 from a local discount store which is a good price as you can pay up to £3.19 from Amazon, although you can get it for around £2 from other websites. I have been using this particular tube for about two months and I don't seem to have used much at all, but I do use others at home. I like the feel and smell of this cream, and the effect it has on my hands. I do recommend this hand cream to protect your hands from the cold weather and to keep them in great condition
Every year at work we get a winter road show from our in house occupational health team and they surprise us with a skincare pack to help the men who work in a heavy industrial environment to care for their skin better. They get things like sunscreen and lip balm in there. This year the hand cream was by Neutrogena and I was impressed, instantly putting it on my desk for daily use.
I knew the Neutrogena brand for it's odd adverts of old men on boats (in Norway?) and knew it to be of high quality. I have had their hand cream before but not for a while.
This cream is really thick and luxurious and has a slightly oily consistency when rubbed in. It takes a good while to sink in to your skin but I do think it is a sign of quality in this case. I only use a tiny amount so the tube goes a long way.
A 50g tube is £3.65 at Superdrug so I think this is a bit more expensive than a lot of other hand creams.
This hand cream is unscented which I think I prefer to a heavy scent at any rate. It feels lovely on the skin and the screw on cap works well with the product.
I like this hand cream, it feels more like a treatment than other thinner ones I have used and it has long lasting effects on my hands leaving them soft and smooth. I also like to massage the cream in to my cuticles as a further treatment and it seems to help my nails grow faster and stronger. Happy to recommend this hand cream.
I love this product!
Rarey have I ever gone without this and always keep a bottle in my bag!
Although I love the Champneys miracle hand and nail cream it is sometimes a squeeze on the purse but this is great stuff to use in place of that and sometimes I forget to switch back because I'm so happy with the results especially over winter as this is exactly what this product aims to help with, those winter months in a way where Champneys can't.
I read that this is meant for 200 applications and I wondered why it lasts forever and a day! This has 40% GLYCERIN than other hand cream forulas which is why it is a little greasy or might take longer to sink it but it is a fantastic product to protect you long-term against the biting winds.
The cream, in just my personal opinion, is thick, heavy and doesn't sink in quick but this is perfection so why not take your time?
I like to describe this as hand SOS as only a few times have I let my hands suffer with the cold and they have chapped or looked seriously undernourished but with a few hours of applying this miracle cream I find my hands are almost restored.
I always take at least one day in the week to apply at night and wear the moisture gloves [purchased from THE BODY SHOP]
I find that this will give you the full experience from a great product.
This is avaiable in two sizes 50ml and 75ml.
I bought this hand cream for £3.50 from my local supermarket. It wasn't the cheapest hand moisturiser available but it was recommended to me and I needed a really effective moisturiser because my hands were getting really dry as winter approached. It was definitely worth spending the money!
It has a really thick consistency but it spreads easily across your hands. It spreads so well that it lasts quite a long time so it's actually quite a good investment. In my experience, thick moisturisers don't tend to absorb very well or very fast, but this product is definitely different. It feels silky smoothy on your hands which is a nice change from the greasy feeling of many moisturisers. I find any moisture is absorbed within just a couple of minutes so theres no need to wait around for it to dry!
My hands felt so smooth and soft, I was really impressed. I was also amazed by how long the effect lasted. I put my hands through a lot in a day and when it is so cold outside, I find they get chapped easily. Now, with this product, my hands are protected and stay soft and hydrated all day long.
I was also quite happy to find the product did not have a strong fragrance. Many women find this a negative but I hate having noticeable moisturised smelling hands. I think its quite a distinctive smell - I much prefer a clean simple fragrance.
5/5: effective, long lasting, fragrance-free.
The NEUTROGENA NORWEGIAN FORMULA Hand Cream is available for GBP 3.50.
The hand cream is described as follows. "The NEUTROGENA NORWEGIAN FORMULA® Hand Cream is a true beauty classic. Containing nearly 40% glycerin, it is very effective at relieving skin dryness, restoring and protecting the skin barrier, even in the harshest conditions. With only a dab needed for each application, each 50ml tube contains over 200 applications!"
I have become almost obsessed with using hand cream as it was always an area that I neglected and I am starting to notice it now. The skin on my hands isn’t as smooth and young looking as the rest of me though it is less scaly since I have been moisturising on a regular basis.
One of my favourite hand creams is Neutrogena hand cream. It doesn’t smell as lovely as some other hand creams but it is one of the best at taking away dryness and leaving the skin on my hands comfortable and less chapped.
The hand cream is a clear coloured cream which actually looks more like wax than cream. It is made from glycerine as well as a few other ingredients that I don’t even know how to pronounce. All that I know is that if you have really dry skin on your hands then this will relieve them instantly.
You only need a tiny dab of the cream as it is really easy to spread it right through your hands and fingers. It gets in all the nooks and crannies and is great at getting into the lines of your knuckles and your cuticles. This gives such a nice relief from dryness and stops itching almost straight away. My hands gets irritated when washing dishes but some of this on afterwards really helps to sooth them.
It makes my hands a little bit greasy which is expected but it isn’t too greasy and it lasts for ages before I need to put any more on even when my hands are really dry and chapped.
I actually bought a couple of mini versions to take away on holiday with me as they were small enough to fit in my hand luggage without taking loads of room as those small plastic bags you get aren’t big enough for all my cosmetics. The normal sized ones aren’t huge but these really are tiny.
I took two away with me because I was convinced that one wouldn’t be enough for a week but even using it every day I still had some left when I got home as you really do only need a tiny bit of it. I now have the other one in my going out bag because it takes up so little room. You get 15 ml of cream in the mini tubes and they cost £1.
The Neutrogena Norweigan Formula Hand Cream has always been a favourite of my moms. She suffers from very very dry chapped hands even throughout the summer months. The Neutrogena cream seems to be the only product that suits her skin and helps her chapped skin from getting worse and can prevent it from setting in. As she was always using it, I have tried it in the past and find it to be pretty good at working its magic!
For a 50ml squeezy tube the RRP is around £2.77. It is packaged in a white tube, with a simple design on the front telling you what it is and what is does. It claims to give instant relief to dry chapped hands and give long lasting relief if used regularly. The hand cream itself is a strange clear gel formula, and seems quite thick and sticky when first squeezed out. This seems to loosen up at you work the gel into your hands and a little goes a long way. Neutrogena, say that the 50ml tube is so concentrated it will give 200 applications. The gel is a glycerine based formula and despite this doesn’t sit heavily or greasy on your skin but absorbs quickly. The cream is fragrance free so you are not left with any perfume like scent that could irritate sensitive chapped skin.
As soon as you apply you do get instant soothing relief if your skin is particularly dry or chapped. A few applications see an improvement in skin condition and your skins moisture level. Both me and my mom have also noticed that if you use regularly it can prevent chapping and as soon as you stop using it you notice a difference. It is a hard working concentrated formula that really packs a punch and delivers its promises!
I was recently given this product, Neutrogena Hand Cream, by a friend who said she had bought it and then never used it. When she gave me it I suspected the product had actually been her husbands as the packaging design looked rather masculine. However, I started using the product straight away and now use it regularly.
The product I have is the Neutrogena Hand Cram in a concentrated and unscented formula. It is slightly different from the Dooyoo picture in that the cap is red. I have a small sized 50ml tube. However, since it's made to be concentrated this actually supplies up to 200 applications. As I mentioned, I do feel the packaging design makes it look like this is a man's product but there is nothing in the way the product performs that would suggest this.
The tube is a soft malleable type of plastic, made for easy squeezing. There is information on both the front and back of the tube. On the front it states that this cream gives "instant relief" of dry hands and that "just a dab" is required for it to be effective. The back of the tube is printed with full ingredients, addresses for the brand and some further information about the brand.
Neutrogena state that this cream gives "immediate and lasting relief" for all hands including ones that are severely chapped and mottled. They explain that the glycerine rich formula can also protect hands from environmental conditions and leave hands feeling soft and smooth.
I have used a couple of Neutrogena products in the past and in general they are a brand I trust and respect. Having used this product I would agree with most of what's written on the tube. Except one major thing. This is not a cream: it's a balm. If you are familiar with glycerine you'll know it's a transparent waxy kind of substance that is common in things like lip balm recipes. The texture of this product is a lot like Vaseline. It's clear in colour and has a jelly type texture. When you rub it into skin it forms a barrier over the top of the skin more than it actually sinks into the skin. When the term 'cream' is used you generally expect something white and milky and something that will absorb into the skin rather than act like a protective balm or wax.
Having said this I like the product, it works and it does what it says it will do. It is easy to apply and you really don't need very much to spread across the hands. Due to the waxy nature of the product it's better to apply to the back of your hands only as if you put it under fingers and palms your hands get very slippery and feel greasy. On the knuckles, backs of fingers and back of hand though it's perfect. It softens skin immediately and changes the way dull dry skin looks, transforming it into healthy, peachy skin. It also seems to offer an extra level of protection that normal moisturiser lotions cannot. It feels really calming and healing too.
I have been using this product, which I am loathe to keep calling a 'cream', during the summer months and it is very good on hands that have been abused by sun bathing and outdoor work. I imagine though that this product will work best in the winter time when you really need that protective layer over the skin.
I was given this product free but the product is on sale in Boots chemist stores for £3.50 for the same sized tube. I would probably buy this in the future now that I know how the product performs and it's qualities but if I'd bought this myself thinking it was a cream I might be a bit annoyed! I would recommend to anyone who works outdoors or for whatever reason ends up with dry hands which need to be treated on a regular basis.
I'm not a massive user of hand creams and lotions, but this really is good stuff and something different in my opinion. The tube is white with the Neutrogena logo on it and the Norwegian flag with a blue cap. I believe the red cap means unfragranced, which implies that the blue-top is fragranced, but I honestly can't detect any fragrance in this hand cream whatsoever, so don't let that put you off.
The hand cream itself is actually somewhere between a cream and a gel. It's clear in colour when you squeeze it out, and has a consistency far more gel-like than cream-like in my opinion.
Squeezing the cream from the tube, there is quite a bit of resistance in the tube, it doesn't squeeze out easily, lets say. This is a good thing though because you definitely don't want to squeeze too much out. A (very) little bit of this goes a long way, and does a good job. My partner once squoze a big lump out of the tube and despite rubbing our hands together to share it (!) in the end we still had to wipe it off with kitchen roll. What that means to me is that a tiny amount is absorbed quickly and well and so any excess can't be absorbed - so that kind of endorses everything that it claims to be. To be fair, it does say on the tube "just a dab" needed, my partner needs to wear his glasses more often, maybe.
I don't particularly suffer with very dry skin, but when I do, I've found that with other creams, after I've rubbed it in my hands start to feel a bit rough again within half an hour or so. This is definitely not the case with Neutrogena, it really is different to other hand creams I've used, and once it's absorbed my hands feel soft and stay soft much better. On the front of the tube it claims "instant relief of dry, chapped hands" and I would definitely agree with that.
Mine is only a 50ml tube which is small (about 3" high) but we have been using it for over a year I think, and there still seems to be plenty left and no loss of effectiveness when using it. A very good quality product, which is reflected in the price which is high compared to other creams currently £3.85 in Boots.
I suffer from very dry skin on my hands, particularly during the winter when my hands get very cold. I bought the unscented version of this hand cream over a year ago now and it is still sat in my bedside drawer for use before I go to sleep at night. I can't remember how much I paid for it because it was such a while ago, but it currently retails for around £3.60 in Boots and Superdrug.
This hand cream comes in a white tube with a red lid, red due to it being unscented, that screws on and off with ease. I like the fact that the product sits on the lid, as it means that it is always easy to squeeze out, rather than having to shake the tube up and down to get the hand cream out. The hand cream itself is rather thick and colourless, and I'm happy with it being unscented, as it probably means it's better for my skin.
The product claims to provide 'instant relief of dry, chapped hands' and it also states 'just a dab needed'. I have found both of these claims to be totally true. As previously mentioned, the skin on my hands can get very dry during winter, and applying this hand cream to my chapped hands always helps to sort them out. I tend to apply it nearly every night during the winter after I've got into bed, and my hands are always smooth and feeling well moisturised by the morning. I do find that I only need to apply a very small blob of the product in order for it to work well on my hands, which means that it lasts for a very long time, seemingly much longer than other hand creams I have tried. It says on the back of the packaging that the 50ml of product will last for more than 200 applications, and I think that this is believable.
I don't tend to apply this hand cream during the day, as it leaves my palms ever so slightly greasy, but I have found this to be the case with all other hand creams, and this probably leaves them less greasy than most.
This probably isn't the cheapest hand cream available, but considering it lasts for such a long time and is very effective, I think it ends up being very good value for money.
I have noticed that lately my hands become dry very easily and in the cold weather it is worse. Sometimes after washing up or bathing my hands feel like they need cream on them too. I have this hand cream at hand throughout the day to help my hands to feel softer.
I bought this one because a friend recommended it plus it was a good price - it was £3.
This hand cream helps to make dry skin softer and also helps to protect the skin too so it sounds like an ideal combination.
The packaging isn't anything to write home about, it is a white tube with a blue cap.
To open it you flip open the cap, this is easy to do and the most practical as if it was a screw cap I would struggle to put it back on whilst my hands had the cream on. You do not need much at all, I use a pea-sized amount which I squeeze onto my fingers and then rub into my hands making sure I cover all fingers and the back of my hands really well. It is surprising how such a small amount can go such a long way.
It takes about two minutes to absorb and whilst it is dong so my hands remain a little greasy so I always make sure I apply this when I don't have to touch anything for a couple of minutes first. If i use any more than the pea sized amount I find it takes a lot longer to absorb.
I have noticed that when I use this my hands do feel much smoother especially if they felt rough to begin with. I use this when my hands feel rough but also on days when they feel fine too to help protect them.
I think this is a great hand cream, it's well worth £3.
I never used to use moisturises or hand creams until this past winter as it has been especially bittely cold and I have found that my skin has taken badly to this. Luckily I don't have any cracking or red areas of skin on my hands but I have noticed a tenderness on my fingertips and the skin peeling a little in these spots. This becomes especially painful when going from cold to warm so often when travelling so I thought it was about time I started a skin care regime.
I've used Neutrogena products before to help with spots and thought it was of a great quality then so I didn't see why it wouldn't be now. The price was also another tempting factor as I was able to grab a tube of this hand cream at £3.50 from Tescos for 50g. I thought this was very reasonable especially for a well known brand so I grabbed two.
The cap is very sturdy and slots into place firmly when you twist it back on which I liked about this product as sometimes I have issues with leaking where the contents are able to pour around the tube opening and sometimes down the side of the tube. This was the first thing I noticed about the product, the second being that when I squeezed a tiny blob out of the tube it was very thick and a bright white colour. I rubbed it in reasonably well and I felt as though it had a soothing effect as my hands did feel much more moisturised. The consistency of the cream was very reasonable and meant that application was easy and I didn't have to wait around for ages for the cream to be fully absorbed into the skin.
The cream is highly concentrated so that little blob is really all you need. I've been using one bottle for around 2 months regularly and there is still some left in the tube so I do feel this makes up somewhat for the price. The feel of the cream and the relieving effect is has on my skin, almost immediately after use, assures me of its quality and leaves my hands feeling soft and smoothe.
The product is unscented which I was glad of as sometimes the scents do aggitate my skin and I don't even have particularly sensitive skin. It does have a pleasant creamy smell though which I enjoyed and that wasn't overly strong either.
One thing I particularly enjoyed about this product was that it doesn't leave my hands with a greasy residue or a waxiness which sometimes I experience from other products. I think it absorbs quickly so long as you do only apply a blob and even when I wash my hands multiple times I still feel the soft and soothing effect of the cream on my hands.
Overall I think that this is an excellent product I would definitely recommend. The price, although not exactly cheap, is about standard for a product of this sort and can often be found on offer even at around half price. It is unscented which is great for my skin and really does have an almost immediate relieving effect on my hands. They feel soft and smooth and I definitely have noticed a change from before. It has a creamy, smooth texture and is so easy to apply. The small ammount required also means it is long lasting so you get a high quality product for a reasonably long time. I would definitely recommend.
My hubby swears by this hand cream. His job is very physical and spending a lot of his time outdoors his hands are often sore and very dry. The hand cream comes in a range of sizes but we currently have a 50ml tube which cost £2.80. It would be handy to buy one of their small tubes for your bag if your hands are often dry but being in a 'macho' job hubby doesn't want to be found with a tube of hand cream!
Made by Johnson&Johnson it is a product that really does produce pleasing results. It soaks into the skin easily and doesn't feel sticky after applying. It makes my hands feel nice and silky. It also makes a difference to my hubby's hands making them less painful but he would need a miracle to make them silky smooth! It does have a slight smell not unpleasant or overpowering reminds me a bit of talc that my gran used to use. There is an unscented version if preferred. It is comforting when applied but as always take care if you have sensitive skin.
When applying the cream it is important not to use too much as a drop the size of a 10p piece will do for both hands. If your hands are particularly dry it would be well worth applying at night then wearing some cotton gloves. This would also be fantastic to do the night before a special event such as getting married when the attention is on the new shiny wedding ring!
This is the one and only hand cream I ever use and I could not be without it. In this cold season my hands get utterly parched. Every time I wash my hands they cry out for moisture, they feels uncomfortable and literally need the extra moisture from this hand cream.
What is it: Norwegian formula "instant relief of dry, chapped hands, just a dab needed". It is indeed!! So many hand creams are too oily, leaving your hands slippery and greasy and unable to pick up your coffee mug without fear of losing your grip. This cream goes in like a dream. A small amount is needed, your know the drill, rib in to hands, smoothing over the back of your hand and along your fingers. For me, this cream goes in instantly, in seconds and my hands are left smooth and moisturized and not in the least bit slimy.
The price: Circa £3.49 from Boots, well worth it and lasts for a long time. I keep it in my hands bag, I use it a couple of times a day or after using drying soap and it lasts for month at a time. I would highly recommend using this, any other hand cream just won't do!
The size: This tube comes in a chunky little 50ml tube, so its very light weight and will fit in to small clutch bags. Im never without it so it is essential that it'll fir in all my handbags . If it doesn't fit I won't get that bag...either that or I squirt a tiny amount in to a teeny little tub. Either way, I don't leave home without it and it never lets me down. I do not need it so much in the summer but the cold is very harsh on my poor little hands.
The scent: I buy un-perfumed, I don't need my hands to smell like flowers, I just need to keep them soft . Also, its worth pointing out that if you use this hand cream and then moments later you use your hands to eat something, you cannot taste any residue on your hands, there is none to be had. So if you are on the go you do not need to wait even a small amount of time before the cream sinks in, it is instantaneous.
I would highly recommend this cream every time if you have a tendency towards chapped hands.
If however, your hands naturally retain moisture then you would not need this concentrated formula. I asked my friend to try some (she has painfully soft, moisture-healthy skin) and it did not sink in very well. She used a much more gentle formula.
