Winter Skin Soother - Nip+ Fab Dry Hand Fix

Wednesday, December 12, 2012

I don't know about you but my hands are really feeling the wrath of this wintry weather. A good hand moisturiser is a compulsory addition to my handbag all year round, and is a product that I take very seriously. Let's face it. nobody wants 'old lady hands' before their time.

I've had a few hand creams on rotation lately but my favourite by far has been Nip + Fab Dry Hand Fix. The sister brand of Rodial has come up trumps with this product from its more affordable skincare line.


I'd liken it to a balm, more than a lotion and find it doesn't leave a greasy, sticky residue which is a pet hate of mine when it comes to hand creams. Another bonus, is that it leaves my hands smelling delicious. I've had friends at work comment on the smell, no less than four times in the past fortnight. It has a sweet smell, reminiscent of coconut - yummy! Upon application it immediately soothes and hydrates dry skin. I don't have  a problem with rough skin on my hands but at the moment if I don't moisturise within a few minutes of washing my hands, they do feel tight.

It nourishes further with an innovative concept called Aquaxyl™ which retains water loss and leaves hands super soft. I don't need to reapply if I'm out and about without my gloves, my hands don't feel dry in the freezing weather and remain moisturised until I have to wash them again.

Containing amino acids which brighten the skin over time, I have no complaints regarding the formula of this intensive hand cream. It absorbs so easily and I'm able to continue with whatever I'm doing and not waste time waiting for it to skin in or having to wipe off excess product. It hydrates like a dream and is all I want in a hand cream. It would be perfect it were a bit cheaper, but given that I've also been using hand creams which cost more and aren't performing half as well, it's worth every penny. When my tube has run out I'll be spending my own money and repurchasing it, so expect to see it in a future purchases post at some point in the future.

It also doubles up as a great foot cream too - great for soothing worn heels! Fantastic product.


How much is it? £9.95 (75ml)
Where can I buy it from? Online, Boots, ASOS, Debenhams, Feelunique and selected Sainsbury's branches

I am very fussy about my hand cream and I have been though a lot of them. Some of them are either too weak or too greasy but I will give this one a try next time I pop into Boots. Thanks for sharing.

I've heard of this but wasn't too sure about it, you've convinced me now to try it! Hands get so dry in the winter and you definitely need a good moisturiser! I'm currently using Soap & Glory Hand Food. XxxX http://thesecondhandrose.blogspot.co.uk
