What hand creams are useful for?
A soft, smooth and pain-free skin must have an effective, hydrated hand cream, especially when you wash your hands frequently.
The scientists at the Good Housekeeping Institute Beauty Lab are doing rigorous testing to help you sort out all your endless formulas, restricting them to the best hand creams you can buy this season in order to soothe and humidify your skin.
5 Best Hand Creams
This rich Mary Kay formula, many testers said, helped make the hands chapped seem smooth. GH Beauty Lab Chemist Danusia Wnek points out that the thickness of many of our testers is probably due to a high proportion of kennels in the formula.
Apart from textures, online users keep on talking about how much their hands have helped feel and hydrate. “I used it before bedtime and in the morning [my hands were still soft and silky,” a consumer shared.
Note that this is a heavy duty formula some testers said that consistency has left their hands tightly.
2) Dove Dry Skin Relief Replenishing Hand Cream:
GH Beauty Lab assessments testers were unable to know how soft the Dove cream felt their skin. Testors rated the formula best for the look of the chopped or cracked hands with glycerine and fatty acids.
It’s no surprise with a 32% improvement in humidification after six hours. As one of our testers said it makes your hands “baby soft and non-greasy after application.”
One had even tried it from her husband who said that the look of her dry, “rough” hands was improved.
3) Mario Badescu Rose Hand Cream:
Turn to this Mario Badescu hand cream for anti-aging effects on hand wrinkles. “It makes my hands soft and smooth, and it smells nice,” says senior chemist Sabina Wizemann from the GH Beauty Lab.
The formula, however, ‘also has retinyl palmitate to improve your skin tone and boost collagen which is handy for aging hands,’ she explains.
“They are rich in humectants, emollients and occlusive to keep your skin moisturized, nourished and pleasing to touch” “I find it best used at night as it is a touch sticky, and the rose scent is relaxing to cozy up before sleep.”
