Surpringly Good Review: Cussons Carex Hand Cream Nourish & Protect, Antibacterial & Aloe Vera

Hand cream is not the most exciting thing in the world when it comes to blogger reviews; the good ones just sort of do their jobs and the worst leave you with what I call STICKY HANDS.  

I was sent some Carex Hand Cream to try…I can confirm I have NO TUBES LEFT at all because they were stolen by Mr C and Mother Candy who both told me many good things about this basic, but effective hand cream.

Cussons Carex Nourish Protect

These Carex hand creams have antibacterial action, had have a light smoothing gel-cream texture too to keep things soft.  There’s 75ml of product in each tube and it costs £2.50.  

They say:

Soft & protected hands anytime, anywhere. Antibacterial action. Carex nourish & protect has been developed by our experts with a light, smoothing formula that provides… Instant hydration.

What was good about this hand cream was;

– It sinks in quickly…so Mr C says he could put it on before driving and wouldn’t have to wait for it to sink in 

– It didn’t make Mr C’s hands sting or itch which many many formulas do as he has eczema on his hands

– It has a nice light texture thats easy to spread

– It’s a good size tube which could be carried around in the pocket (Mr C)

– Mother Candy loved the texture of the cream and felt her hands felt very hydrated without a sticky feeling

Neither Mr C or Mother really noticed a big difference between the two formulas other than the Aloe had a different smell slightly.

The ingredients for this hand cream aren’t exactly ‘natural’ but hey, if it works, it works.

All in all, I liked the hand cream (before I had all the tubes stolen!) and so did Mr C and Mother so I declare this product a cheap and cheerful product which also works. 

Buy it here for £2.50.
