Hi there! I haven’t done a product comparison in a while. When I found these 2 Cuticura hand creams when I packed up my beauty stuff for the house move, I thought they’d be perfect! I gave these 2 products a try, and here’s what I think.
Cuticura Skin Balance Protective Hand & Nail Cream is aimed at people with dry hands. It claims to soften and hydrate skin and to strengthen nails. It claims to have anti-aging powers, and it also says that it evens out skin tone. A look at the back to tube shows that the product contains niacinamide (WOW!), sweet almond oil and vitamins B3 and E.
You’d think this is an amazing hand cream. However. it’s just about alright. I know I bought this hand cream at Poundland, so I also know it was £1. I’d say the hand cream is what you expect for the price. I also don’t like the very strong soapy fragrance. Because of this, my husband and I are now using this hand cream as a foot cream.
Cuticura Intensive Hand & Nail Cream promises to nourish skin and to provide instant relief for rough, chapped hands. The product contains vitamins B3 and E, but it no longer has sweet almond oil or niacinamide.
I’ve tried this hand cream, and I think it’s good but not great. It’s runnier than the old version, so it feels lighter. And I like that it’s fragrance-free. I’ve had more nourishing hand creams, but I use this hand cream right before I go to bed, and I’m happy with it.
In summary, the new version is the clear winner of this comparison. I will pick it up again for £1.
