Balmonds Intensive Hand Cream

Intensive Hand Cream is a deeply-nourishing but wonderfully gentle cream that we formulated to keep hard-working hands healthy and hydrated. The soft, shea butter-based cream works both as a protective barrier against environmental irritants and as a super-nutritious boost for skin that needs extra help, feeding it with the essential fatty acids and vitamins it needs to maintain its regular cycle of regeneration and repair.

We’ve designed it to be mild and unfragranced so you can use it as often necessary without worrying about further irritation from synthetic ingredients. Rich in hemp seed oil and blended with Roman Chamomile essential oil.

The cream is especially useful for those who need to wash their hands often throughout the day or whose hands come into contact with harsh detergents, allergens or irritating chemicals that can leave skin sore, dry or cracked, or can aggravate conditions such as hand dermatitis, psoriasis or eczema. Care workers, health professionals, gardeners, climbers, mechanics, parents: this one’s for you!

It’s also rich and gentle enough to make a fantastic daily face cream.

Intensive Hand Cream is totally free from parabens, petrochemicals or perfumes, which makes it perfect for dry skin and is also suitable for people who may be prone to hand dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis and dry, sore, itchy skin conditions.

Suitable for all ages and skin types, including babies from 6 weeks.
Cruelty-free and suitable for vegans

Balmonds Intensive Hand Cream Reviews

I liked the colour combo and matt label is sophisticated and makes it feel expensive, much more effective at reflecting the product than a shiny plastic squeezy tube. Pleased and eager to get using it.  I like the colour choice, the white of the bottle gives you a clinical and clean impression that combined with the green that clearly shows it’s a natural product and that perfectly reflects the purpose and product.  This was really easy to use and apply. Once applied this absorbed into the skin well.  This most definitely kept my hands healthy and hydrated.  I had eczema bumps on my hands that were sore now I barely have any if any at all. Using this make my hands feel lovely and soft and smooth.  I would use this 1-2 times a day. I used this for 2 weeks and now my eczema has pretty much cleared up.  My partner uses it also, he is a landscape gardener, is hands are extremely dry, cracked and sore this helped sooth and soften them hugely.  Very important to me products are natural. Natural ingredients are often much better than chemicals etc. especially when considering delicate or condition prone skin. Chemicals usually irritate and agitate my skin. Cruelty free is an even bigger bonus who wants to use something that’s caused pain and suffering on another? Suitable for vegans is great to as vegans are an ever growing population, this cream caters to the masses. An all natural product that clearly worked for myself and my partner, not all products do what they say on the tin but this one certainly has, also its long lasting as you don’t need a huge amount the cover your hands.  I am most pleased that my eczema has gone, it was getting progressively worse and sorer and I can’t even find one bump anymore.  I would buy this as quality product and long lasting. I would recommend as it has worked so well for my skin condition. I feel I have covered most things above; my only criticism is that its quite firm so does not spread as easy but I’m guessing that’s down to the ingredients. Great product.

Nice packaging, not sure about colour choice. Sounded a good concept. Bottle design I felt did look a bit clinical with the colour choices. This was very easy to use and easy to apply.  Once applied this absorbed into skin really well.  This did keep my hands healthy and hydrated.  Helped nourish dry and cracked skin around the nails.  I was pleased as this left my hands feeling so soft and smooth.  I used this daily. I would say I used this for probably 3 days before I saw and improvement in the condition of my hands. My husband also liked this as it was not too greasy.  Free from added chemicals and cruelty free is important to me, vegan or not has no bearing to me.  It is probably a more premium product, but is rather pricey for the average consumer. I loved how soft it left my hands. Personally I would not buy this and it is only due to the fact I feel it is a littler overpriced for a hand cream.  It is had been under £8.00 would have earned higher score.  The product itself has a nice texture to it and left my hands lovely and soft. It’s just a shame it’s quite expensive for hand cream. Also it comes in a plastic bottle. Hayley Taylor – Jack 2 Years

It is a nice neat bottle, nothing too glitzy. Very green. The concept of an all natural hand cream is brilliant, nobody wants all the horrible add ins and we all want to help the environment.  Bottle design is neat and tidy, I see why it is green, but I would have added more colour. This was very easy to use and apply. It did not absorb at all – very oily. The hydration is fantastic. This did help with dry patches but only as its supper oily. It left my hands, oily and greasy. Many Hours later they were soft and smooth. I used it every day at work. I noticed an improvement straight away, but the hand cream was too oily to continue using at work. Being natural and cruelty free is very important to me. The idea of having a hand cream that contains none of these bad things and is good for the environment, it helps people make small changes towards the great good of clearing up the environment.  This is reasonable value for money. I think it does the job for sure, but it is not for day use, I don’t think. If this was marketed as a night time use, it would be blinding. The intensity of this was my favourite, as soon as it goes on anything dry gets sucked up. I would by this but not for everyday use for every night use. I would recommend this to my friends to use as a night time intensive hand cream. I give this a 4/5 as it does exactly what it needs to do, it is very intensive and probably too intensive for my liking as the oil base takes over. There is no, real smell to it and you can tell.  My experience with this product was not great, as I believe I was using it in the wrong capacity. This is not something, in my opinion, that you can use at the office. It may just be the way it was on my skin, but it was too oily to be able to handle anything after. My glass was really slippery when drinking water, typing wasn’t pleasant. The overall feel to my hands was slimy and you could see how oily it was when looking at my hands. That is not to say it does not work, it works, just too well for day use in my opinion. It is very good on dry patches. I found if I put this on at before I go to bed, it does not affect me like it would in the day. Kim Pearson
