Now one day in Lush I saw this stuff and it was quite new then. The woman in Lush was doing a demo on my friend's hands and I liked how it felt. I dint quite like the smell but I liked how soft her hands felt and bought a tub. Used it for a while now and I absolutely hate it. It smells weird now. It doesn't moisturise or anything...its just a coat. Even my friend hates it now. It really smells horrible. I'll stick to my favourites...Soap & Glory hand food and Flexitol. Oh btw if anyone hasn't tried Flexitol hand balm, YOU SHOULD! Its amazing. Its packaging might not be very attractive but dont get fooled. Flexitol so creamy, so moisturising and smells amazzzzing! continued >>
This tacky hand cream does not work. It smells terrible too. Its a miss.
I didn't get good results from this hand cream. It went on very greasy and it took forever to absorb. Similar to what other reviewers have described, the lotion sat on top of my skin.
When the lotion finally did absorb, my hands felt no different – there was no improvement, but also no worsening. It did nothing.
The lotion comes in a tub with a screw top. The packaging is air tight, which helps keep the product fresh; however, the fact that you have to dip your hands directly into the product can be a sanitary concern for some. The product packaging is made of a hard material, which is resistant to breaking or cracking.
The scent was okay. Not sure how to describe it - it has a very light scent and not anything overwhelming.
I won't repurchase this product, simply because it did nothing for me.
This is my new go-to hand moisturizer. I wash my hands a lot and this cream was made with people like me in mind. After using this just once my hands felt better, not so dry and cracked. I use this on my hands at bedtime and wake up with soft, moisturized hands. The cost is a bit steep, at $18.95 UDS for 3.5 oz. however, a little goes a long way, so you can give this a shot and have it last a long time!
Lush's Helping Hands is a semi-thick, dusty-pink tinted hand cream. It doesn't really sink in too well even on my parched hands, just kind of sits there and leaves a greasy residue. But what really ruins it for me is the smell. I'm not typically too picky about fragrances but this cream kind of smells like puke to me. Lush products are always hit or miss with me, and this one's definitely a miss.
A much cheaper and more effective alternative that I recommend is Avon's Moisture Therapy hand cream.
I bought this hand cream with no expectations, as I've never found a hand cream that has worked for me. In the winter I get very dry, cracked skin which often bleeds around my knuckles. This hand cream sorted that problem within about 2 days. I apply a generous amount before bed only (can't stand the feel of hand cream during the day) and it keeps my skin really soft until the next evening. I tend to wash my hands a lot and it even lasts through that. Amazing stuff. Would definitely recommend.
This hand cream is amazing. I was given a sample at lush and didn't think much about it - my hands are notoriously dry, red, and cracked all the time between the cold weather where I live and the horrible soap at work and washing my hands all the time. I came to terms with the fact that nothing would cure my dry skin and not be super greasy as I use a key board and hate having grease stains left on my keys from stuff like Aquaphor. Anyway - I tried helping hands and was super blown away. The product sinks in right away and calmed down my redness. My dry scaly skin disappeared and my hands actually felt soft. I continued using my sample and ran right back to Lush to by a full sized product. I was a little surprised at the price - around $17 for a jar, but the jar is really big so I guess it's worth it and the fact that is works so well. I wish the tub was a little more portable - this isn't something I can throw in my purse and take with me, but luckily I kept the sample jar and have just been refilling that to take with me in my purse. I highly recommend this product, the lightweight consistency is so nice and there really isn't much of a smell/fragrance which is a huge plus IMO.
I love the way this hand cream smells, BUT, it does nothing for hands!!
It is very light formula, the ingredients, are nice things that sounds like it would really moisturize, but it doesn't seem to work.
I love the pump though, I find it really easy to use than the usual hand cream in tube.
This is by no means a light hand cream. It is heavy, but it WORKS. I use it before bed and in just a few days I noticed that my hands felt softer throughout the day. I'm only give it 4/5 because I wish it smelled better. However, the weird smell does not stay noticeable for very long. Like most Lush products I've used, a little goes a long way.
I got this in a small pump bottle in a gift pack at christmas. Sadly this just sits on my skin and makes it very greasy!
