‘Tis the season for cold and chapped hands. I know I have been going through hand cream like water over here, and if you’re smart, you’re doing the same. I want to tell you about yet another hand cream I have kept in my stash. This one is the Hand Repair Cream by Skinfix.
I initially heard of this brand when I tried out their diaper cream a while back. I loved it but it wasn’t available anywhere except online, so I promptly forgot about it once I ran out. In November, I was pleased to hear they started selling this at Target and Target.com. I love that I can much more easily get my hands on their products now that I can swing by my local store and pick up what I need. Often times my baby needs can’t wait for a shipment in the mail, so I’m loving that I can pick up what I need in person!
But back to the hand cream- the majority of people who suffer from eczema experience it on their hands. This is a rich, medicinal cream that is clinically proven to increase skin moisturization levels by 110% after one week of use.
If you ever have itchy, painful skin on your hands you know how important it is to have a protective barrier on the skin. When I squeeze this out of the bottle, I get a thick salve. When I rub it in, it turns white initially before blending into my skin and become a thick, moisturized barrier. It feels slightly waxy at first, yet still really soft. It’s never greasy and I can tell it’s working because hours later I still feel traces of it on my skin. It’s very emollient and I can see that this would be great for frequent hand washers, cold weather dwellers, and anyone prone to dry skin.
This reminds me a lot of the C.O. Bigelow hand cream that I reviewed here the other day, without the medicinal smell. It’s pretty scentless as far as I can tell. I will love having this on my on bitter cold days where I can feel the wind biting at my skin.
My friend, Jessica from Intrubeauty and I decided to give ten tubes of this away! We know you will love it. Rather than giving away one full sized bottle, we are giving away ten mini 1 oz. creams. These are not the sale size, but they are perfect for your purse. In the first picture of this post- it’s the cream in the back. Good luck, and don’t forget you have to have a U.S. address to win and be over 18. The rest of the info is in the Rafflecopter below!
