Hi. Can anyone recommend a good barrier cream? Thanks.
Garden gear do a hand barrier cream that is supposed to be good, my friend uses it, I believe swarfega also do a barrier cream too.
YES, SWARFEGA DO DO A BARRIER CREAM.
I KNOW SOMEONE WHO SWEARS BY IT. I AM UNFORTUNATELY TOO DISORGANISED TO REMEMBER TO USE IT MYSELF.
the body shop do a "hemp" cream, excellent for preventing chapped,cracked hands, i used to use it a lot when i worked all day with horses....my husband who is a reed thatcher uses e45 on his hands, especially at night on the splits in his fingers, it soaks in overnight ?
The hemp cream is excellent - although I don't care for the smell much.
Olive oil is pretty good but is quite oily (no surprise there).
Experience has taught me that the best barrier is prevention - namely gloves... but I always seem to remember this after it's too late!
Yes aunty rach i forgot to mention the smell of the hemp one ?
It's a shame about the smell. Maybe it's like when medicines taste awful but do you good?
I usually have several hand creams on the go - it's my Holy Grail to find one that is very effective, not too greasy plus smells amazing (and not cocoa butter - yuk!) ...
Not a barrier cream, but amazing for hubbie and I after heavy building or gardening work: O'Keeffe's Working Hands Cream. It's priced higher than most hand creams but on our xmas list.
As it does the job - you notice the difference in less than a week - and doesn't sting on overworked hands. Also no smell.
Hello , I do wear gloves in garden & allotment but some jobs you need to use your hands
Do use hand cream as well
