Fight Club Hand Cream

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.

I bought this from ajoeynamedroo on Etsy for USD $11 plus $3 shipping to Oz.

    Ooo I hate flakey!!!!
    The best handcream I have ever tried actually has to be the Jo Malone Vitamin E one…. it is amazing!

    Love the name, but the flakey story is a little off putting.

    That said, my hands are so destroyed as you can see from all my NOTDs and my cuticles are shameful.

    @Gabi I’ve got the sample of Jo Malone’s Vit E cream on my desk ready to try! Perhaps it’ll be the next winner! At least it’s not flakey 🙂

    @JenW I know how you feel! My hands are constantly very, very dry, so it takes a lot of maintenance to just get them looking normal. My favourite so far is the barrier cream from Tranquillita on Etsy. Thick, but easy to apply 🙂

    I’m like you, I would have bought this just for the name. It’s a pity it didn’t work out, flaking hand cream is not good.

  6. Dempeaux says:

    @GlossQueen Yes, pity about the flakes!

    That’s too bad about the flakes. I’m wanting to check out the body scrubs from the range- do you think they are worth the bother? The hand creams I’m using (whether they are good or not that is the question??) Clinique Stop signs, L’Occitone shea original and Crab-tree and Evelyn gardeners hand therapy. I need a heavy cream (because I’m so dry) but hate greasy! I’m just too picky! 🙂

    @makeupmerriment Absolutely! I’d probably avoid the foody scents (just my personal taste) but there are a few non-foody ones there that look interesting. Their ingredients are certainly moisturising too! I can also recommend the Barrier Cream from Tranquillita on Etsy. For me, it’s thick, but not too greasy. The smell is medicinal like all the others 🙂

    Maybe put a little in the microwave for a few seconds to prevent flaking? (or have you tried that already?)

  10. Dempeaux says:

    @Claire I did think about that, then I was worried that it would develop a funny smell or something. Perhaps I should do it…
