Treat your skin with Hope’s Relief

As a Mum our hands are always busy. They are expert tower builders, healthy meal makers, book page turners, soothing back rubbers and funny tickle monsters. Unfortunately, mine are also dry skin sufferers. As my hands spend so much time in water, washing up several times a day and bathing Leo every night, my skin isn’t that great, it has a tendency to crack and itch, especially in this cold weather. Eczema also runs in the family and I occasionally suffer with the odd flare up on my hands.

When Hope’s Relief, creators of Australia’s number 1 natural eczema cream, contacted me to see if I wanted to review their Intense dry skin rescue cream I, of course, said yes. Hope’s Relief have a range of natural skin care products, all designed to soothe and treat dry skin. As their range is made of completely natural ingredients, they are all free from sodium laurel sulphates, parabens, coal tar, artificial colours and fragrances and contain no mineral oils or petrochemicals – in other words, there’s no nasty stuff.

The hand cream comes in a hand bag friendly sized bottle and the packaging is much more attractive than most medicated hand creams you can buy in the chemist. I started using the cream straight away and have come to realise that a little bit of the cream goes a long way. I have been treating my hands at least twice a day for about 3 weeks now and I still have plenty of cream left in the bottle. 

The cream works best when applied 2-3 times a day, make sure you leave it somewhere you can see it so you don’t forget.

I am very impressed by the Hope’s Relief  rescue cream, it doesn’t smell too strong, it absorbs into your skin really quickly and your hands feel softer immediately. I found leaving it on my dressing table when I am at home helps me to remember to use it as it is in plain sight and when I go out I pop it in to my hand bag so I can continue using it throughout the day.

A couple of weeks in to use I did notice a dry patch of skin had reappeared down the side of one hand. I was assured that it was not a reaction to the cream as it was only in one spot and hadn’t occurred immediately when I began using the cream. I continued using the cream for another week and now the dry patch has nearly gone again, yay! Unfortunately I think I do need to stop exposing my hands to so much water and maybe start wearing gloves when I wash up (or maybe get a dishwasher, wouldn’t that be amazing?).

Suitable for big and little hands.

The Hope’s Relief range of products treat all types of skin conditions including eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis and dandruff. The best thing about the Hope’s Relief range is that it can be used on newborn skin as well as your own. We all know how important it is to keep our little ones skin nice and moisturised but if your baby suffers from a dry skin condition then I would say it is definitely worth looking into Hope’s Relief. As all their products are made with natural ingredients and contain zero nasties, you know your child’s skin is going to be soothed safely with this cream.

Are your hands always busy too? It can be easy to neglect our skin when their are so many other things to think about but it is really important to keep your skin moisturised. With the Hope’s Relief intense dry skin rescue hand cream, skin care is quick and easy and it won’t be long before you notice the results. With Mother’s Day just around the corner perhaps there is something in this range your own Mum would appreciate? Her hands have been just as busy as yours, they are the hands that stroked your cheek and picked you up all those times when you fell after all.

The Intense dry skin rescue cream is £16.20 from the UK Hope’s Relief website. If you want to purchase any of their wonderful, all natural products you can get 20% off using the HOPE20 promo code at the checkout.

Hope’s Relief products are also available from Wholefoods, Nutricentre, Revital, Panacea, Planet Organic, John Bell & Croyden as well as You can also purchase products from good health stores and independent pharmacies

Do you suffer from dry skin? Have you used any of the Hope’s Relief range? I would love to know what you think. Also, does anyone want to buy me a dishwasher? 🙂

    This sounds really good, Monkey has had eczema since he was 6 weeks old and I have tried so many creams although I have not come across this brand before and well may consider it when his current cream stops working like it inevitably does! Thank you for joining us at #BloggerClubUK hope to see you again next week x

    This sounds lovely! My son suffers with dry skin and my hands have just become really sore, our mum hands get really chapped don't they! I've been using epaderm but I'll keep an eye out for this!

    Oh I feel you, washing up really dries out my hands and I wish I had the space for a dishwasher in my flat! Sadly no…but this sounds like a great cream. I'm always on the look out for new hand creams 🙂 #KCACOLS
