COMPETITION: Carex Hand Cream in Aloe Vera and Vitamin E

I don't really get excited by hand cream.  When I was offered the chance to review two new hand creams from Carex and the opportunity to give away 6 tubes to readers of LBR, though, I was interested - because these aren't just hand creams.  Carex have formulated them to provide instant hydration, long lasting moisture, and an antibacterial action.  It's that last bit which is a little unusual - most hand creams are concerned with moisture and nothing else.  These hand creams are plenty moisturising but come with the additional benefit for antibacterial action - and they're much, much nicer than using antibacterial hand gel.  You know, the alcoholic stuff which leaves your hands feeling rather dry.  Not nice, but a necessity if you travel on the Tube regularly.

There's not a great deal of difference between the Vitamin E and the Aloe Vera varieties - the scent is slightly different, with the Aloe version smelling ever so slightly more medicinal.  Both sink in quickly into the hands, leaving them feeling velvety soft and not at all sticky.  Fingers back on the keyboard within a minute.

If you're the kind of person who carries hand sanitising gel as well as hand cream in your bag, you might find that this two-in-one product gives you the best of both worlds in one tube.  I'll be slipping one into my bag from now on.

I also mentioned I have 3 tubes of each variety to give away.  This'll be a Twitter competition - just follow me and retweet the competition tweet, and you're good to go.

  1. Hmmm...interesting. I would love to try them out for they seem like great products to try out based on your review. Kinda curious on their scent and how they work on the skin.
