5 of the Best Hand Creams

There's nothing worse than dry, cracked or flaky hands, which is especially common during the winter season. To help you avoid this dilemma we've put together a list of the 5 best hand creams to help keep your skin smooth and soft. We've also selected not only the hand creams that do the job but the most cost-effective treatments if you're sticking to a tight budget.

Top 5 Hand Creams

Nivea Hand Q10

The first on our list of best hand creams is Nivea's Q10 hand location, which should put you back around £4.50 on average. Nivea is a big name when it comes to skincare and this handy location not only helps smooth dry skin but is also anti-wrinkle and contains their patented age-defying forumla, all for under five pound.

Clarins Hand & Nail Treatment

At a slightly more expensive £19, Clarins product makes it into our best hand creams list because it provides the best results for getting into hard to reach places and those cuticles and nails, leaving nowhere on your hands untouched. The lightweight cream and subtle fragance absorbs into the hands quickly and also works to minimise age spots and strengthen nails.

Shea Alchemy

Shea Alchemy's hand cream comes in a small handy pot, packed full of natural ingrediants from the independant family-run business. In fact, the hand cream's main ingredient, the spring water, comes straight from the founder's family farm! If you're looking for cheap, friendly, organic and want to support independant chains, Shea Alchemy's Intense Hand Cream is available at just £7.50 per pot.

Clinque Deep Comfort

If you have extra sensitive skin or suffer from a skin condition, Clinque's Deep Comfort hand cream is one of the best hand creams for you. It's fragance free and hydrates for up to 12 hours, available at £17 from most retailers.

Burt's Bees Banana Hand Cream

Looking for something a little more unique? Burt's Bees Banana Hand Cream does exactly what every other hand cream does, only it smells good enough to eat and is packed full of aloe vera, vitamin e and 100% natural ingredients, available at £9.99 per pot.

Retailers for Hand Creams

All the best hand creams we've listed in our top 5 range are available from most specialist retailers, such as Boots, Bodycare, Superdrug and larger supermarkets, such as Asda, Sainsburys or Tescos. If you suffer from dry skin or a condition that effects you skin, always speak to your doctor for an alternative treatment before trying these hand creams.
