Review: Vaseline Healthy Hands & Stronger Nails Cream

It is so important for your hands to be cared for properly as they show the early signs of ageing, but they are often neglected. Until recently, I let my hands become neglected too, until I discovered this Vaseline hand cream that actually makes me want to apply it!

I am a huge fan of hand creams from L'Occitane and The Body Shop, but they are really quite expensive for what they are and I begrudged having to buy a new one every time, even though they are such nice products. Anyway, it got to the point where I needed to repurchase a hand cream and I just couldn't justify the price tag of the gorgeous L'Occitane ones, and I thought I'd buy a cheap one to keep me going until I could justify it. Well, I could not have been more pleasantly surprised with the results of the cream packed inside this cute pink tube!

Containing loads of lovely ingredients to keep your hands soft and supple, this hand cream is formulated to not only intensely moisturise your hands, but also to strengthen your nails by 50%. Now I know what you're thinking, it is an incredibly large claim to make, but I can assure you it actually achieves noticeably stronger nails (and this is coming from someone with notoriously brittle nails)! In fact, with only a few days' use I saw a huge difference in my nails, which were left strong and looking amazing!

Application-wise, this cream is an absolute dream! You only need to apply the smallest amount and it sinks in instantly. Although the formula is fairly thin, the moisturising properties are incredible and my hands are left feeling soft and hydrated within seconds of using the cream. As if this wasn't enough, there is a gorgeous subtle scent to the cream and it is not even slightly sticky; in fact, you can go about your business again with no residue on your hands pretty much straight away!

For such an inexpensive hand cream, I was expecting something far more mediocre than what it actually achieves. In fact, I would go so far as to call this a Holy Grail hand product - and that really says it all!
