Beauty | Palmers Shea Butter Formula Concentrated Cream

March 7, 2014

The best hand cream EVER!

I always seem to have very dry skin on my hands, and with the weather being as cold as it has been, I found myself on the hunt for a new intensive moisturiser to keep my skin silky. Enter the Palmers Shea Butter Formula Concentrated Cream, officially THE BEST HAND CREAM I HAVE EVER USED!!


I’m always quite careful about what I use on my hands, as my skin, as well as being very dry is also quite sensitive, and can be prone to eczema (boooo!!) However I was drawn to this because of the natural looking packaging and boasts of being enriched with shea butter and Vitamin E perfect for extra dry skin.



Thankfully, it didn’t irritate my skin, and actually has transformed the appearance and feeling of my hands! Now that may sound quite melodramatic, but I literally can’t believe how much softer and more moist they are than normal! The packaging states that the Concentrated Cream is also for use on elbows, knees and feet so I will definitely be trying it out on these areas too.

The cream is quite thick and doesn’t need much as it spreads easily. It is ever so slightly greasy but this doesn’t last long, and for me is totally worth it and the level of moisturising it gives. I give my hands a good dose just before bed time each night too, so this slight greasiness doesn’t matter.


I seriously cannot rate this moisturiser enough – my hands have never been in such good condition over winter and I put it all down to frequently applying this Concentrated Cream. My only complaint is that it doesn’t come in a larger size! Whilst £1.39 for 60g isn’t expensive, it would be nice to have a bigger bottle as I love it so much I am constantly applying!

What hand cream would you recommend?
