Hey everyone 👋its soooooooooooo cold here in the UK ❄️and as usual my hands are extremely dry, I swear its like they are stripped of any & all natural skin oils because I wash my hands so much! I have done a few posts on lotions which I have tried & tested for dry skin including: Aveeno® …worth the💰? and Alternative to Aveeno?
I realise I need to focus on hand washes as well rather than just moisturising lotions, so I will post a link to hand washes I tried out in a bid to retain some moisture in my skin 👉 Review: Luxury Cream Handwash
OK so e45 is quite a popular choice for people with dry flaky skin, as its been clinically 🔬proven to help treat dry & sensitive skin, they’re also considered to be skin care experts especially in the treatment of eczema. I thought why not test them out as my hands get to this stage where they start ‘ripping’ around the knuckle area because of how dry they are & the skin on my fingers starts peeling (don’t ask how much I wash my hands guys 😶)
Now, I personally found this the worst moisturising lotion I have ever ever ever come across 😕
Its like your hands are dry as a rock you apply this lotion & first of all the texture, I’m not with it.🙅🏻 Like I’m really not with the watery drip drip 💧 texture of it, & then when you are trying to rub it into your skin its like its just sliding right over the top, like you still feel your dry skin & its like this lotion is doing n o t h i n g but just simply gliding over 👎
Now there could be two reasons for this, maybe this lotion isn’t for hands as dry as mine & so its not moisturising them properly because when I apply this lotion to my arms it seems to do a somewhat decent job BUT I still hate the texture. For me buying this lotion was a complete & total waste of money guys & in all honesty I am waiting to use it all up and buy the Neutrogena body lotion again.
How do you guys keep your hands moisturised during winter?
