We art teachers probably wash our hands as often as doctors! When you combine this frequent hand-washing with cold winter weather, and whatever medium we’ve currently got our hands in, it takes a nasty toll on our skin.
After so many years of trying different lotions and still having rough, dry hands, I had all but resigned myself to this fate! But when I started working with our new Raku Sculpture Clay and my hands actually got worse (how is that even possible??!) I became re-inspired to find a solution!
I searched Amazon for “best hand cream” and started reading dozens of product descriptions and even more reviews. I’m super picky! I wanted something that was fragrance free and non-greasy, my two hand cream pet peeves! Finally, I landed on Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream…. not only did it meet my pet peeve criteria, but it had hundreds of 5 star reviews. How had I never known about this??
All I can say is this product is not like anything else I’ve ever tried. I noticed an improvement the very first time I used it.
It’s 2oz. size may look small, but a little goes a long way…. you only need to use it sparingly. From reading the reviews I learned a great way to apply it: Just put a tiny dab (about the size of a small raisin) on the back of each hand. Then use your fingertips to rub it in from your wrists to your fingertips – don’t forget your cuticles! Then finally rub both hands together well. Starting on the back of your hands is the key to your hands feeling soft and not slimy!
I ordered several tubes so I can have one nearby when and where I need it. I keep one at my desk, one in my school bag, one in my car, and one by the bathroom sink. I always use it right before I go to bed, and a couple of times during the day when I think of it. For the first time in years, my hands are super soft now…. even in spite of that Raku Clay!!

Nice and helpful article to protect hands from dryness and hardness. I love soft hands but I also try on many types of hand creams but no results. Now with your experience and star rating I thing it’s useful and we can easy take it anywhere.
Brilliant post to take your hands soft. I also want my hands softy but nothing works on my hands but as you have mentioned in this post It looks very helpful. Thanks for posting.
