Concentrated relief for dry chapped hands. Dermatologist recommended. Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream delivers effective relief for dry, chapped hands. It is so concentrated that only a small amount instantly leaves dry hands noticeably softer and smoother after just one application. Used daily, it helps prevent dry, chapped skin - even under the harshest of conditions. It started with Norwegian fisherman. Faced with some of the harshest, coldest weather on earth, they used a formula that delivers concentrated levels of glycerin to dry, chapped skin providing immediate and lasting relief. Five years of independent clinical testing confirm what the fishermen knew all along - Norwegian Formula Hand Cream consistently outperforms other products. Just a little goes a long way. This 2 oz tube contains over 200 applications. Made in USA.
I'm serious. Mostly. In the months before I discovered this amazing product, my hands were so chapped, dry, and sore that they the skin was breaking open and bleeding. I was in so much pain, constantly. I couldn't even make a fist, I wanted to cry. Other lotions couldn't even touch the dryness, and they would just sit on top of my skin and eventually wash off without really changing the condition of my skin.
Well, anyhow, a friend recommended this to me because she worked in a veterinarian's office, and the vets swore by this. So I picked some up at the store--I was a little disappointed that the tube was so small. Then, in the car, I put some on, a pretty generous amount. Oh man. I could feel it just seeping into my skin. It was like my skin was just drinking in the moisture. I could bend my knuckles! Without pain or bleeding!
Without this amazing hand cream, I probably would have got an infection or bled to death. So it pretty much saved my life.
Oh, and don't let the small size fool you. It lasts a long time. I use it regularly--you just don't need much. I go through a 2 oz tube a year. I made my husband promise me that every Christmas for the rest of my life I'll get a new tube in my stocking, because we're exciting like that in our family.
This is a good quality hand cream that only requires a very small amount for great results. Smells pleasant, absorbs easily, and doesn't stain the hands. Compact size fits in the handbag, so it's easily carried around. However, the design for the container is pretty boring. Makes a good buy! 4 stars
