I gave this hand cream a try as i came across it in teh supermarket and it seemed reasonably priced and i liked the size of the tube which fits nicely in my handbag. Unfortunately i found this hand cream to be too heavy and greasy for my hands. I stopped using it after a couple of weeks as although i saw signs of improvement, i disliked how the cream would settle into the dry cracks of my hands which made it difficult to rub in.
Great for dry skin. Works well if you have skin conditions like psoriasis or ezcema.
Too greasy for me. Leaves a white coating which takes a while to rub in.
Since I discovered this Norwegian Formula hand cream (recommended by my dermatologist) the skin on my hands and especially my fingers, has improved out of sight. My hands feel normal again, after about three months of daily use.
This hand cream heals damaged skin remarkably well, even on my finger tips and around the nails. I only have to use a small amount, maybe twice a day. I use the fragrance free version, so there's no problem with smell.
No cons - it does just what it says it will.
This is a good product to use if you suddenly find yourself with very dry hands. I have tried a few hand creams over the years and find that many actually dry out your hands even more. This product does not feel oily and is very easy to apply. It only takes a few applications and your skin starts to feel a lot more moist. A great product to use during the winter months.
Easy to use, makes your hands feel a lot softer after only a few applications. Quite affordable and you can normally find this cream easily.
There are none.
At first gives skin a white cast, so needs rubbing in very well, strong fragrance, may be too heavy for warm weather My skin is quite sensitive to cold and weather changes. During the winter my skin began showing signs of eczema. I tried this product based on reviews, and it has been a lifesaver. It is quite thick but strongly fragranced (which may not be for everyone). It is important to rub it in thoroughly. I feel it really penetrates the skin and moisturizes, not just temporarily sealing and protecting the skin like some hand creams.
Everybody should own one of these hand creams, they're divine! They're so cheap and easy to buy, and so rich and moisturizing on hands. I found after a few uses my hands were so soft and smooth. It absorbs quickly and it's not greasy. It's perfect for me because I don't have too dry hands but I have eczema.
Everything! My hands are much softer and very smooth. You can buy one for about $8 and it'll last for ages. You can just pop it into your bag and you can apply it during the day, especially during cold weather.
i love this hand cream, it is the most moisturizing hand cream i have used, and sometimes i use it on my lips or anywhere that needs moisturizing, because it absorbs easily and works well! I like the fact that make one with SPF, but it's a completely different consistancy, and I don't like as much as this one!
It is a great product!
Nothing i can think of.
this was recomended to my mum by her dermatologist. it worked for her so i thought i would give it a go. this is a really thick cream - almost like a vasoline texture. it moisturises skin quickly and protects it from further damamge. fits well in your handbag - a small tube. quite well priced. you only need a tiny amount to make a differenct. i found this product did not irritate my skin at all. a great value intensive hand cream
amazing stuff. really thick handcream. very good price. works so well. one application will find your hands softer
nothing - this is a great product
It's well priced, easily available, I like the size of the packaging - it can fit in a handbag, but because you need such small amounts per use also lasts a decent amount of time. I particularly like it because it was strongly recommended to me by a dermatologist.
It was strongly recommended by my Dermatologist to help manage dermatitis on my hands, along with a strongly medicated prescription cream. It's been fantastic in keeping my skin in decent shape and helping minimise the need for the prescription cream.
Love it! It has a high content of glycerin (moisturizing agent). Skin feels smooth and soft. Used it as an emergency rescue cream for very dry skin in harsh English winter. It's so good as it works as an excellent foot cream, too.
It works. Inexpensive. A little bit goes a long way.
I have terrible dishpan hands so to speak but since using this really cheap effective hand cream my hands are now looking more youthful and feel great. Just a small dab of this nice thick creamy lotion is all that is needed to massage into your hands and the results are 100%. My hands feel soft and smooth without being greasy. This is the best cream for dry chapped hands for such a cheap price. I will recommend this cream to anyone.
Soft smooth hands in just days. It smells great and is non greasy and absorbs well. It is very cheap and affordable.
A well priced product that brings soothing moisture back to your hands. One tube will last a long time. A handy product to have in your drawer at work, in your handbag or on the bedside table.
This hand cream is absorbed very quickly into your skin. It leaves no greasy or oily feel/residue. It is very concentrated and you only need a small amount to do your hands. The little tube size means its portable and fits easily into your handbag etc.
When I next wash my hands, I notice that they are slippery because of the hand cream, but this is not a problem.
I was given this by my mum and thought it would be just like every other hand cream (greasy residue, wash off when you wash your hands and only work if you put it on multiple times per day). Well, I was wrong. This stuff totally rocks. Put it on and no residue, and it will stay on for ages. I only need to put it on when I notice my hands are dry, maybe every second day, and that's it. I was using Crabree & Evelyn and Nivea stuff all the time to get not even half the result of this.
Works instantly, no left over residue on your hands, doesn't cost a bomb
The best hand cream I have ever used. Brought it home from UK and while need is not so great hands-wise for such a heavy-duty cream, I still use it but only need a tiny amount for it to do a tremendous job. I am going to get more (bigger tube??) as it works exceptionally well on legs and my feet (heels) in particular!! A TOP product.
Bought this in late December in London as hands impossibly dry in their winter and it worked BRILLIANTLY!!
None what-so-ever. A great product!!
There's nothing better than this cream after a really long swim or too much of wearing thongs in the summer (yes! it works on your feet too!). the first time i ever used it was in Norway in freakin winter! couldn't really leave the house without it, so there you have it - best hand cream for summer and winter.
I seriously think it's the best hand cream ever! it's concentrated so it lasts really long. it's got great softening effect and it leaves a delicate glycerin "coat" so your hands can survive even some serious dish washing :)
This is by far the best hand cream around. I have tried many expensive hand creams and have always gone back to this product. Another benefit is that it really seals in moisture, so that if your hands are in water afterwards, it still prevents them from becoming dry and scratchy.
I love this stuff!!!! This is definitely the best value hand cream available. Only a tiny amount is needed to keep hands so very soft and smooth. It is easy to find at most supermarkets and nearly all chemist outlets, and I have found that although it isn't expensive, it is quite often on special.
I am a great fan of Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream, it is smooth, non-sticky and very economic to use, just fabulous, great feel.
When selling it on special, please make sure not to cancel out its beneficial action by sealing the triple pack in plastic which cannot be removed/opened without injury to your hands. For this reason only my rating is 4 out of 5.
I think it is an outstanding value for money product, which I recommend and gift to many of my friends.
today I bought a special offer package "buy 2 get 1 free".
Could hardly o...
this neutral, non fragrant hand cream is the bee's knees! Love it - I suffer from dry hands often as I wash them alot and find they dry out very quickly ... after just one or two applications of Neutrogena - you can feel your hands renewing themselves.
Have recommended this product to many friends and no-one has ever come back to say it hasn't worked for them - on the contrary they all rave about it as well!
A little bit of this hand cream goes a very long way and actually works! dry and chappecd hands feel protected and begin healing immediately
nothing to dislike
I love this cream and it is a pleasure to use.
A little of it does spread very easy and there in no greasy feeling afterwards like a few other creams that I have tried.
Do yourself a favour and get some Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream.
OMG finally after buying a drawer full of different hand creams I have found one that actially works.
I have hands that for some reason tend to dry out and the skin is very easy to crack, peel and split being very sore but this hand cream is fantastic.
After the first application I noticed a differenc...
Questions & Answers
Howdy - I bought some netragenia cream and used it and can't find it / when or if I find it has it got a use by date printed somewhere on the tube?
Hi Brian. The tube has a date of manufacture on the crimp, but no expiry date. I don't think it actually "goes off" but I remember reading somewhere on a product review page that it has a shelf-life of 3 years from manufacture. I think any kind of product like this that has no expiry date, is usually good for at least one year.
