Hand cream is vital. Hand Chemistry does the job.

*This is a review post. I was kindly sent some hand cream to try*

I wash my hands a LOT. I work with small children, and that can be messy, (and sometimes downright disgusting, let’s be honest) and as part of normal life, with cooking meals, keeping the house clean, and all the other things your hands do daily. My hands get very dry and as I now get a little older (ahem) I am starting to see signs of aging, too.

I have tried a number of hand creams and lotions over the years, especially when I was working as a nurse, and my hands were washed even more often, and there are a few I particularly like and will use as part of my daily routine. My husband and children will buy me the more expensive brand of hand care creams I like, for my birthday or mother’s day, because they know I like it and won’t usually splurge on myself.

I recently was asked to try out a hand cream, new to me.

Hand Chemistry Extreme Hydration Concentrate For well hydrated hands

“Ultra-concentrated hydration complex contains five hydration active technologies from marine and plant sources that provide deep and lasting hydration to the skin, offering dramatic visible textural improvements.

Our 360 degree approach to extreme hydration consists of Pseudoalteromonas Complex, Tremella Fuciformis, HA Pre-Cursor, Protective Shield Matrix and Maize Propanediol.
The Pseudoalteromonas Complex has a high moisturising and regenerating effect, and has shown a huge visible difference to skin texture in a matter of days.
Tremella Fuciformis is extremely hydrating and helps to deliver below surface hydration, whilst our HA Pre-Cursor encourages the skin to create its own hydration for long term hydration benefits.
The Protective Shield Matrix forms an invisible glove on the surface to ensure the skin retains its own moisture and protects it from extreme coldness whilst the Maize Propanediol offers instant hydration.”

The application advice says to use the cream. morning and evening,  for ten days.

I have to say, after almost a week of using the cream, I was very impressed, and definitely notice an improvement in texture and condition of my skin. It feels like quite a heavy cream, when you apply it, but my skin seems to absorb it, probably because my hands are quite dry, so it didn’t feel greasy once it had absorbed. It seems like a really lovely intense treatment cream for dry hands that need a boost to get them into better condition.

  1. I have to say I’ve neglected my hands, I’m always in & out of water during the day so they do get rough.

  2. honestly dont treat my hands too well, sometimes i’ll use coconut oil, I’m constantly washing my hands, they need help lol!

  3. I use hand cream, especially on my wrists, which come out in a rash that’s itchy when they’re dry or I’m stressed xx

  4. I lather on a really thick layer of good quality hand cream with at least 20% shea butter just before I switch off the light at night. After a few nights, most dryness and itchiness disappears.

  5. I slather on vaseline if they are really dry, I put cotton gloves on and sleep with them on to soften them if they get really dry.

  6. My hands are always dry and I often forget to apply hand cream but my lovely mum leaves a tube next to my soap dispenser in both the kitchen and bathroom to remind me to apply!

  7. I lather my hands in hand cream and put on my little heated hand mits as this helps help them heal and recover from dry cracking skin.

  8. Too be honest my hands are in a mess as im an engineer so in dire need of some lovely cream. Dont currently use any.

  9. I use Neutrogena Norwegian formula concentrated hand cream which is the best hand cream I have found for my hands so far 🙂

  10. when I am at home I regularly apply hand cream, but when I am working outside and it’s really muddy I tend to forget. My hands get very dry from constantly being wet and cold, so a cream that also includes a shield component would be very useful.
