In case you’re wondering how I plan my product reviews, I just look for inspiration on my vanity, in the shower or in my handbag. That’s why it ended up taking so long to write this review for the Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Concentrated Hand Cream and I blame my mum. My mum is probably the pickiest with beauty products and generally prefers natural remedies. But when I let her sample this Neutrogena product, she took to it like a fish to water. As a result, this disappeared from my vanity until I decided to search for it to rescue my chapped hands this week.
The Neutrogena Norwegian formula is different from their normal range of products as the formula is based on the ingredient of glycerin. Glycerin traps in moisture which in turn allows your driest skin to heal. The Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream is one of the most popular products in the UK which isn’t surprising considering how cold it gets out there. And since temperatures in Dubai have dropped, it’s perfect at this time of the year.
The product itself is a semi-clear thick cream which looks and feels like Vaseline. However, unlike Vaseline, the Neutrogena hand cream is a non-greasy variation. You only need a pea sized amount to moisturize both your hands. I recommend using this right after washing your hands to trap in extra moisture. This also works great as a cuticle cream to get your nails into shape.
I rarely give a product 5 stars but this product easily deserves that. It’s definitely a product that I’ll be repurchasing over and over again. And those of you stricken by the actual polar vortex in the United States, I highly recommend you stock up on this.
