I’ve seen the pot of O’Keeffes Working Hands Hand Cream at Boots on quite a few occasions, but I was put off trying it on the basis that it was in a pot which is a little on the messy side. Recently the brand has added a tube to their collection and I’ve been giving it a good go to see what it’s like. The Working Hands Hand Cream, as the name suggests, is designed for those who have hard working hands that end up dry and rough as a consequence; a good example of this are those who work in medical settings and have to wash their hands thoroughly between each patient, but also anyone who’s involved in manual work and even those who garden regularly.
The O’Keeffes Working Hands Hand Cream is a very thick, rich treatment that I would advise using only at night as it creates a film that’s still present in the morning. If you just need a bit of nightly hydration then this is probably too rich for you, but if you suffer from extremely dry, rough and cracked hands then this will be a godsend. As someone who uses crutches, I really struggle with dryness and patches of hard skin from where the crutches rub, plus I have very sore knuckles, since they face out towards the elements and are always the first to impact anything, so they take a serious battering on a regular basis. The O’Keeffes Working Hands Hand Cream works really well to deeply hydrate and sooth skin that’s been attacked by the elements, and as it’s so unbelievably rich, it’ll offer help to even the driest of hands. I use this most nights as a deep treatment and my hands look noticeable soft and a lot smoother come the following morning. The tube costs £7.99 and is available from Boots here – link.
