Five of the Best Hand Creams


Clarins Hand & Nail Treatment Cream, £14.40 for 100ml
This bestselling product from Clarins is an award winner for a reason. It doesn’t stop at simply moisturising your mitts; it also strengthens nails, minimises age spots, eases irritation, prevents damp palms, and softens chapped skin. A tiny bit of the shea butter-based formulation goes the longest way, and the subtly spicy rose scent is unusual but lovely.
L’Occitane Verbena Ice Hand Cream Gel, £13.50 for 75ml
The unique texture of this gel cream feels incredible on overworked hands, working to hydrate and protect whilst also cooling them down significantly. The key ingredients of verbena and tapioca extract energise fatigued skin, and the soft powder matte finish ensures that swollen palms are soothed. The citrusy aroma is great for both men and women.

Thierry Mugler Angel Perfuming Hand Cream, £17.43 for 100ml
As part of a larger family of bath and body products, the glorious Angel scent has been reworked into a sumptuous hand cream. It’s an ideal way to get a hit of the Caramel, Honey, Tonka and Chocolate scent at any time of day, as the heat of your hands provides an ideal diffuser for the addictive fragrance.
Jack Black Industrial Strength Hand Healer, £14.50 for 88ml
This vitamin-packed cream is excellent for the thicker skin of a man’s palms, however this super strength hand cream isn’t just for guys – girls can use it on dry and cracked elbows and knees to great effect. Antiseptic eucalyptus provides the bulk of the refreshing scent, while added rice bran oil and glycerine work to soften, moisturise, and lubricate dry skin.

Crabtree & Evelyn India Hicks Island Living Spider Lily Hand Therapy, £11.35 for 100g
This super luxurious cream is a new addition to the wildly popular Island Living collaboration between Crabtree & Evelyn and Royal socialite India Hicks. Made up of a nourishing shea butter base, the cream is plied with a generous helping of macadamia nut oil, soothing aloe, and nail strengthening myrrh. The best bit? The dreamy, exotic floral fragrance! A new favourite.
