Sometimes, I get quite a bad eczema flare up on my hands and it can be really irritating and sometimes painful. I don't exactly know why this happens, I know it can be related to stress and diet, but on occasion it can be completely out of the blue.
Anyway, because so many hand creams are perfumed, I find that they irritate my hands even more, so I stay well clear of them. However, even though this has the strangest smell that I can't even compare it with anything, it has done nothing but good things for my hands. It's extremely moisturising and relieves my skin so much, this probably has something to do with the Community Fair Trade hemp seed oil in the cream.
Also, although it's very moisturising, it's not heavy or sticky and sinks into my hands quickly. There's nothing worse than that sticky, greasy feeling on your hands all day!
To be honest, I would go as far as saying that this is one of my 'hero products'. I always go back to it and I favour it over some of my more expensive hand creams. I highly recommend it for anyone that has eczema, dry skin or just wants a new hand cream that does the job.
It comes in two sizes, 30ml for £5 and 100ml for £11. However, I always buy the £5 one as I like to have it with me in my bag wherever I go. For only £5, why wouldn't you give it a go?
