So my journey through the stodgy handcreams of Etsy continues, and my latest pot comes from the seller of vegan body products called ajoeynamedroo who (ironically) is based in the US. But seriously, handcream called Fight Club? Who can resist that?
This cream is quite solid in the pot and has to be warmed up in your hands for around 30 seconds before you can rub it in. The smell is medicinal, but I’ve found that this is the case fore all barrier creams that I’ve tried from Etsy so far. I use this every night on my hands, and every morning my hands are thoroughly moisturised, irrespective of what I’ve put them through the day before.
The problem is the application. No matter how much I warm up the product, it flakes everywhere when I try to rub it in, which means that every night I sit in bed picking up little flakes of barrier cream from the doona and rubbing them back into my hands.
Apart from the issue with application, this cream works very well.
