Aveeno hand cream

One thing I go through a lot of is hand cream.  I keep a tube of it on my desk at work and moisturise my hands around 5-10 times a day.  About a year ago I noticed that my hands were really starting to show signs of ageing, mostly down to the time I worked in operating theatres a year or so before that where I was washing my hands an incredible amount of times a day, it really dried them out.

Since then, I've been moisturising like crazy and on the hunt for the perfect moisturiser.  Well, this may not be the perfect moisturiser, but it's pretty good :)

Here's what I like about it;

  • It's really quick drying and quick to absorb
  • It dries matte so doesn't leave a sheen on your skin
  • Even after washing your hands, it doesn't wash the moisturiser off
  • It's cheap - I picked up this one on sale for about £3

So that's all the good.  I would do a bullet list for the bad too, but there's only one thing on it, how it smells.  I normally love the oatmeal scent body moisturisers have, but there's something about this one that just makes it smell like... like it's regurgitated oatmeal :/  But that's just how it smells to me, you might smell it completely differently, but it's that scent that would stop me from picking it up again.  Which is a bit silly really considering how good it is, but I guess that's what you get with me, I'm really into scents and how things smell.

What I will say though, I'm not sure if it's this hand cream, or just the fact I've been moisturising my hands a lot over the last year or so, but I feel that the ageing my hands were having has been wound back a bit, they're definitely not showing as many signs as they were, the skin on the back of my hands looks and feels stronger with less fine lines (yay!).  So even if you smell it and don't like this moisturiser yourself, make sure you keep your hands hydrated, you'll thank yourself for it when you're my age :)
