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.


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.


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!


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.
