We reviewed Ragdale Hall Softening Hand & Cuticle Cream (£5 for 100ml).

First impressions:

The Softening Hand and Cuticle Cream comes in a simple and feminine tube. Sadly, the silver lettering rubs off easily, which means it is a bit of a let-down. The cream is relatively rich and has a very neutral smell. 

What’s in it:

The hand cream contains a mix of moisturisers including allantoin, glycerine, sweet almond oil and lanolin. It is made in the UK and BUAV approved – meaning that at no point have any of the ingredients been tested on animals.

Usage:

The instructions simply tell you to massage it into your hands, paying particular attention to nails and cuticles. The cream is quite thick and a small amount goes a long way. It is really quite greasy and takes a while to be absorbed, but any dry or cracked skin is instantly healed.

Effects:

Once the greasiness disappeared my hands felt lovely and soft. These effects lasted for a good few hours before my hands began to dry out and I needed to reapply. It also softened my cuticles, even though they weren’t dry or damaged in the first place!

Value:

This product is relatively inexpensive, considering just how long it will last – you only need a little dollop at a time. The simple packaging and ingredients mean that you are not paying over the odds for anything in, on or around the product.

Final verdict:

I think this cream is a great every day solution. It would be good for anyone who is looking for a regular moisture boost rather than a more intensive solution. I would also recommend it for anyone who wants a product that will tackle both dry hands and damaged nails together.
