This is a reasonably priced and quickly absorbed hand cream which immediately reduces dry flakes and wrinkles. Not a heavy-duty product for serious dehydration, it is more suited for use as an everyday cream if your hands have a tendency to dryness. It comes in a plastic tube which can be stood on its lid, making it hygienic and ideal to have on the desk or by the sink. It is not as good as Clarins Hand and Nail, which I regard as the gold standard of hand creams. But it is considerably better than most products in this low price range, and so excellent value for money.
