According to Good Housekeeping, Clinique Even Better Spot Correcting Hand Cream SPF 15 £25 comes out as the top cream for hands. Testers said it left hands more hydrated six hours after the product was applied and made a real difference to skin quality.
Their second choice is Roger & Gallet Bienfaits Hand & Nail Balm £6. Tester for this product say that their hands were also much smoother after just one week. I can personally comment on this product as I took it on holiday with me (ideal travel size). My husband used it for two days after his fingers and palm started to crack and dry out in the hot climate. After just 48 hours the difference was amazing.
