Review: Garnier 7 Day Intensive Nourishing Hand Cream

I use a lot of hand cream. I work in a job that requires me to wash my hands MANY times a day and this means that a good hand cream is a must to avoid horrid dryness. I have tried so many different creams that I decided to start reviewing them.

Garnier 7 Day Intensive Nourishing Hand Cream

For: Rough, dry hands

Volume: 100ml

Price: $4.79. I bought mine at Priceline.

Claim to Fame: Mango oil and L-Bifidus. Claims to give lasting hydration, even after you wash your hands.

Scent: 8/10
Fresh, a bit fruity. Noticeable for about 10 minutes after application but not overpowering.

Texture: Thick. Not at all runny. Holds its shape as it comes out of the tube.

Initial: A little goes a long way. My palms initially feel quite oily. Massages nicely into cuticles. This cream is great for giving yourself, or someone else, a quick hand massage.

10 min: Cream has absorbed well into skin. Oiliness has passed. My hands feel soft, smooth and protected. Cuticles remain well moisturised.

Verdict: I've almost finished the tube, so this one's a winner. The effects of this cream are noticeable and lasting. After a few hand washes the effects are however, diminished. For the price I think this product is great.

I would definitely buy this product again.

Any recommendations on what to try next? What's your favourite hand cream?
