Frugal hand care

Hello Friends,

The cold weather this week has had me reaching for the hand cream and thinking about frugal hand care.

I recently fiished a tube of hand cream that I’d been given as a present.  It was quite pricey – over £10, and I wouldn’t have bought it myself.  I didn’t really get on with it – I seemed to have to keep putting it on.  I finished it anyway, but didn’t think it was any better than my usual hand cream.

This is my usual one…

IMGP3343…£1.49 from Superdrug.  It goes on nicely, it’s not greasy and I don’t have to keep re-applying it.  I’m not convinced that some of these expensive brands are any better than the cheaper ones.

Which are your favourite budget toileteries?

Until next time, Tawney x

  1. A big round blue pot of Nivea – the original cream, not one of the fancy Niveas – its the only thing that stops my hands bleeding. I always put it on before going outside and smother my hands in it before putting on gardening gloves. Also have a pot beside the bed, for a last at night smother. A big pot of Nivea is about £2.50 – £2.75 at the moment in Superdrug, Boots and Sainsbury’sxx

  2. I like the Superdrug Vitamin E oil, it’s useful for all manne of bits of dy skin. I’ve had this bottle for such a long while I can’t even remember how much it was. I also like the co-op toothpaste, my dentist suggested it to me and it’s great, about 50p a tube.
