GHI Expert Verdict
This hand cream was the top performer in our lab test. It scored 9.5/10 for how thoroughly it hydrated the skin both immediately and after six hours, and it improved the hydration of the skin by more than 60%. This was also picked up on by our testers, who rated it 5/6 on how nourished their hands felt following the use of the product. They enjoyed the rich and creamy texture and noted that it worked particularly well on very dry areas, which were left feeling velvety and soft instead. Its thick texture also ensured that the skin still felt protected, even after hand washing.

WE DIDN’T LIKE
