Hi there! I spotted these relatively new hand creams at my local Superdrug store. They were 99p each (they’re usually £1.49 each), and they went straight in my basket! 🙂 I’ve been using these quite a lot over the past few weeks. And now meet Superdrug Intensive Moisture Hand Cream and Superdrug Hand Rescue Balm.
Superdrug Intensive Moisture Hand Cream is a decent hand cream. It moisturises my hands nicely and it makes my skin feel softer and more elastic. However, this ‘effect’ is only superficial and I need to keep moisturising, otherwise my hands will return to their very dry state in under a day.
Superdrug Hand Rescue Balm is decent as well. I didn’t think it would be – because when I used it for the first time, it didn’t feel as rich as most other hand creams. But I noticed the difference this hand cream made after washing my hands for a few times. I’m not sure how it works, but it feels like it’s doing something from underneath the skin surface. But just like the other hand cream, I need to keep using it a few times each day for maintenance, otherwise it’s game over again for my hands.
In summary, these hand creams are quite alright. But they’re not very special. They can’t compete with Dove’s lovely hand cream, or with Baylis & Harding’s wonderful hand lotion. I think I should also mention that Superdrug’s hand creams don’t smell that great. They don’t stink, but their scent is quite plasticky.
The good stuff: Just like the other Superdrug beauty products, these hand creams carry the Leaping Bunny logo. They’re cruelty-free and suitable for vegans!
