I hope everyone is well and enjoying the lovely weather! Today’s review is on the Neutrogena concentrated hand cream which if I’m honest hadn’t ever come across before. It isn’t a product I went out to buy either, it was more of an impulse buy at the till because I needed a new hand cream for my desk at work but kept forgetting to get some.
The packaging of this hand cream is pretty basic but I like the compact size as it is handy for travelling and can be neatly tucked away. However, I am disappointed with the product itself. Hand creams that I have used in the past have always been more of a cream/lotion so I was surprised to see the formulation of this Neutrogena one is a transparent gel. The consistency is very thick and it turns white before absorbing into the skin, which actually takes a while. It works okay on the back of my hands but I do find a slightly greasy/sticky residue is left on the inside of my hands which takes a while to go and isn’t ideal when I want to get on and work. Instead, I feel like I don’t really want to touch anything. You are only meant to use a tiny amount of this product to try and prevent this but I find it hard to find the right amount, which can be frustrating. I either seem to use too much and end up having greasy hands or not enough so I don’t get good coverage. The smell is also pretty bland to me. It’s not horrible but it definitely doesn’t smell as nice as some of the other hand creams on the market such as Dove, Nivea and Jergens.
I will finish this tube of hand cream as it is only small but I wouldn’t buy it again. Instead, I’d rather stick to my usual cream/lotion formulations.
The larger size of the Neutrogena hand cream is available for £3.85. It is 50ml rather than the 15ml miniature I have.
