Four Hand Creams You Need in Your Life

Hand cream is an absolute essential in my day to day life, I have around three on my desk at all times and countless tubes in my handbag, I may be slightly obsessed... But it is kind of necessary, I suffer from eczema on my hands so I need to keep them moisturised at all times. It's so hard to find hand creams that tick all of the boxes, the majority of them seem to be over scented or greasy but I've hunted down four hand creams that work like a dream.

My four dream creams are all perfectly formed in their own ways, I tend to switch between them to get the best results!

E45 Repair and Protect Night Cream

This is an absolute dream cream, you just apply it before bed, go to sleep and let it work its magic. It's perfect if you suffer from mild eczema or dry hands, it's intensive but gentle so you wake up with super soft hands. To make it even more intensive, wear cotton gloves (you can get a pair from The Body Shop) overnight and you'll wake up with the softest hands ever!

It's only £3.99 too which is an absolute steal, you can pick it up from Boots here.

Clarins Hand and Nail Treatment Cream
Ooh, I love this one, I keep it in my handbag for when my hands need a bit of a treat. It is a little bit too scented for me to use every hour on the hour as I usually would. Its great for when my eczema isn't flared up though.

This is a more luxury hand cream and it's reflected in the price, it's £21 and you can see more about here.

balance Me Super Moisturising Hand Cream

This is my every day hand cream, I apply a small amount every time I wash my hands to keep them hydrated in out air conditioned office. It smells dreamy (but not too scented), is super creamy and absorbs really quickly, perfect.

At £14.50, it isn't the cheapest hand cream but it's so worth it, plus a little goes a long way so a tube lasts for weeks and weeks. I picked up mine from Lookfantastic here.

Merumaya Hydrate and Protect Hand Cream

This product is a-mazing. You can literally see it working as you apply it, it moisturises, instantly evens your skin tone and absorbs straight away so it's ideal for using in the office! Plus, it has SPF 15 so it protects as it moisturises, it's an absolute wonder product.

At £12.50, it's affordable too, find out more about it here.

I've been writing this while watching Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt so it's taken me so much longer than it should have... Tina Fey can do no wrong.


  1. The E45 one is my hand bag staple! The Neutrogenia one is amazing too

  2. E45 has become a must for me recently. My hands had become so dry they felt like the skin would crack.

  3. I love E45, but I've recently tried the Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream. Gosh is it expensive, but it's amazing! If you're looking to push the boat out next time I'd totally recommend.

  4. E45 is definitely a live saver! I also love using vaseline and nivea creams a well :) x
