Dry, chapped hands are a big problem for everyone during the winter months, and sometimes no matter how much we slather the hand cream on, we can't seem to resolve the issue.
You may not have come acrossO'Keeffe's Working Hands Cream before, as it was specifically created withoutdoor workers in mind, to target rough and weathered hands that have been exposed to the elements.
This extremely affordable hand cream can actually be found in the 'business' section on Amazon, and has been hailed as a 'miracle' product by its users.The formula provides an amazing amount of moisture - and the best news is that it sells for just £7!
According to the O'Keeffe's website, 'The skin’s natural barrier can be damaged. This damage to the skin barrier leads to increased water loss, which creates dry and cracked skin. O’Keeffe’s Working Hands not only protects skin from further water loss, but also draws moisture into the skin. The protective barrier seals in that moisture, reducing the rate of evaporation.'
And the reviews are unanimous that the brand keeps to its word, with one satisfied customer writing on Amazon,'Excellent product. I've suffered for years with dry cracked skin on the ends of my fingers and especially on my thumbs. I've tried loads of different creams and they have an effect sometimes but O'Keeffe's is absolutely excellent. I've stuck to the twice a day rule and my hands have never been better.'
And another posted, 'This should be called a miracle cream, after months of suffering with really bad and painful cracked hands and fingers after three days the change in my hands is amazing the deep cracks are closing up and are no longer sore and my hands feel lovely and soft.'
A third said that the cream 'sorted my dry and cracked hands and fingertips in a couple of weeks, [I] started to see the benefits after a couple of days so this is good stuff.'
Indicating that the cream can be used to soothe dry and chapped skin on the feet too, they added, 'It's improved my cracked heels as well.'
The cream has 2,650 reviews on Amazon so far, and has an amazingly high 4.7 out of five star average.
