I've had 'old lady hands' since the day I was born. It doesn't matter what I do, they're always dry, or wrinkly, or just look a bit dehydrated. So you can imagine what Lockdown's increase in Hand Sanitiser usage has done to them!
It was time, actually, long overdue, for me to find a more hydrating handcream - and where better to turn than to the Beauty Review Hand Cream category!
Here are 5 of the best hand creams according to real NZ shoppers who have bought them and used them.
They say: Enriched with Sweet Almond Oil, Keratin & Vitamin A & E Alpine Silk Moisturising & Repair Hand & Nail Crème will help protect & repair your skin. Sweet Almond Oil will help your skin feel deeply nourished & moisturised while Keratin aids in preventing dry cuticles and promotes strong healthy nails
You say: This is one of the nicest hand creams I have used. It comes in a good sized tube (100mls) and seems to last for ages. It is not greasy and absorbs really well, and leaves your hands moisturised and soft.- sanzchick
They say: Essano Hand Cream Rosehip Only the ‘essence of nature’ feeds your hands the nourishment they need to overcome the drying effects of daily life, for younger looking, beautifully supple hands. Certified organic Rosehip Oil works with active natural botanical ingredients; Shea Butter and Jojoba to intensively hydrate and lock in moisture.
You say: It comes in a lovely, large pink tube. It has 120ml so will certainly last me a while. It is a lovely rosehip scent that it not too overwhelming and lingers nicely on your hands. When I use it, it leaves my hands feeling soft and hydrated, without being oily or slimey. I find it also lasts quite a while so your hands stay soft for a good few hours into the day. It absorbs quickly and leaves your hands feeling lovely!.- rrachh

They say: LINDEN LEAVES hand creams are designed to easily absorb into the skin to protect and soothe sensitive hands from everyday stresses and environmental chemicals. With soothing aloe vera to minimise irritation, rosemary for its protective antiseptic properties and sweet almond oil to nourish, smooth and hydrate.
You say: I’ve been using this daily since last year and it lasted me roughly four months once a day use. Price wise it’s fair . I’m sad because I used mine up . I’d definitely repurchase this again without a doubt. - Macs
They say: Our beautiful hand cream is a light, non-greasy formulation made from the latest generation plant-based ingredients and is enriched with jojoba oil. Jojoba has a close resemblance to sebum - the oil that is naturally produced by the body to protect your skin and is light and easily absorbed.
You say: I love this cream, it is definitely a great cream for people with sensitive skin, It is so inexpensive for a product so good, i find it instantly hydrates my skin and keeps moisturised, it has a beautiful fragrance also which is a nice touch. Beauty Review member - -LIANA-
