Skinfix Hand Repair Cream, around $20-22.
The second this cream goes on your hands, you feel it moisturize. It’s pretty remarkable actually, and it ties for first place with my other favourite hand cream (from L’Occitane).
There’s no greasy residue at all.
What I like about Skinfix in general is that they’re very committed to safer ingredients. You’ll never find steroids, fragrance, soy, parabens and phthalates in its products — and that’s important to me. Especially when it’s something I might use on my kids.
If you suffer from eczema, dermatitis or extreme skin dryness, this cream might just do the trick. Because it’s formulated with colloidal oatmeal.
That supple feeling you get after putting on Skinfix’s Hand Repair Cream lasts several hours.
But it’s also important that preservatives like phenoxyethanol aren’t used either — even though it’s way down on the ingredient list and I confirmed with Skinfix that it’s well within even then most stringent standards. So do you really have anything to worry about? No. But would I prefer that brands follow suit with those who’ve figured out how to avoid using ingredients like this? ABSOLUTELY. Because they do exist. That said, the Skinfix Hand Repair Cream is miles more natural than the L’Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream that I willingly use on myself.
Yes, it’s $22 (at well.ca) and that’s a lot if you’re on a tighter budget or just don’t think you can spend five lattés on a hand cream. But I will say that it’s in the same price range as the one I love from L’Occitane, which is super-premium. And worth every penny.
