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.
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.|
