DESCRIPTION
Intensive hand balm enriched with Shea butter for very dry skin 



Formulated with a very high concentration of 25% Shea butter to provide intense nourishing care, it forms a protective film for skin that is dry to very dry or uncomfortable due to external aggressions (cold, air conditioning) or extreme cold. 
ADVICE
Intense Shea Hand Balm can be used in two ways.



For daily use: warm a generous amount of balm between the hands, then gently massage into the palms, back of the hands, nails and cuticles (twice a day).



As an intensive mask: apply a thick layer to the hands and leave on for 10 minutes to intensely nourish the skin, then massage in any excess (twice a week).

    This is so thick and heavy hand cream which is perfect for extreme dry skin. It is must have item for winter for me. But if your skin is not very dry? 25% shea is too heavy and oily.

    I first rolled my eyes when I got this for Christmas as during chemotherapy I was given so many hand creams it was a joke. They were all scented and didn’t do much. I had really cracked/dry hands and was using a steroid cream recommended by the dermatologist but that didn’t help. Now with the Coronavirus out I’ve been washing my hands even more and they have been painfully dry. I re- found this a few days ago and thought it looks high quality I’ll give it a proper shot. So I’ve been using it for 2 days, several times a day and can notice my hands are so moisture and cracks are improving! I thought I was going to have to live with this forever! Thank you

    I’m an avid user of handcream and this is the best I’ve ever used. You can see the difference to the texture of your hands. It feels a little creamy on the skin when first applied but a couple of minutes later it’s completely absorbed with no greasy feel at all Terrific. Highly recommended.

    I work with livestock, birds, chickens and small animals every day, so I'm constantly washing my hands. I've tried so many hand creams but Shea Intensive Hand Balm is the only hand cream that keeps my hands soft and smooth - even in the cold months when my hands would normally be dry and cracked.

    This is my absolute favourite hand cream. I buy it for myself & give it as a present to my best friends. It is so luxurious.

    I bought this balm cream for my husband. He is an electrician and his hands are cracks and very dry. After few days of using this cream the miracle happens. This is a healing balm cream. Try it if you have a problem hands. You can't go wrong.

    This is the best hand cream I have ever used. I am an artist and my hands get very knocked around. This cream heals the cracks and helps my nails stay strong. Can not live without this gem.

  • Best handcream ever

    I suffer from very dry skin on my hands, and I find also that a lot of creams then dont sink into my skin they just sit on it and make my hands feel greasy for ages. But not this hand balm, it is just divine. Very creamy, sinks into my skin, doesnt feel oily and has a beautiful fresh smell to it.

    I would certainly recommend this product. I suffer from very dry hands, especially in the winter and also after using soap dispensers at work and public toilets. The cream is very rich and takes a little while to be absorbed but this of course depends on how much you use. I tend to use it at night to get the full effects. The cream rehydrates my skin perfectly.
