Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream

Ok, so I'm determined to try and test all the products in Allure's Legend of the Mall article from November 2006. The first product I tried was Guerlain Meteorites and at about $65 was a pretty big gamble. Today's product is about fifteen times less money and at initial use seems to make about fifteen times more of an impact.

Allure Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream is something that I've seen for years but have never tried. I'm not a lotion type of girl. In fact, I'm so bad to my skin that I usually shave my legs dry! Maybe kicking that will be my New Year's resolution. Anyway, Allure writes about the history of Norwegian Formula Hand Cream:

Faced with some of the harshest weather on earth, the [Norwegian] fishermen swore by a glycerin-based formula developed by a local chemist for preventing dryness and chapping...[it] became a staple for men working in the region and was still being used two decades later in the 1960s when the Norwegian company who owned the patent sent it to Neutrogena.

Norwegian fisherman from the 1940s loved it? You had me at 'Goddag.'

Now I know that most women who know anything about beauty regimens probably already know about this cream. But since this is a beauty blog by someone who's pretty clueless about, well, beauty regimens, it is totally new to me.

I have to say that with just one application, I love this stuff. Yes, the initial application was a bit sticky and both me and Ben (my faithful assistant tester) were a little grossed out. But after rubbing it into my hands, I was trying to find another dry part of my body to test. Luckily, I have one trouble area that is always dry -- my nose. I applied it and didn't feel overwhelmed by the heaviness of lotion or an overwhelming scent.

The feeling on my hands reminds me of a paraffin wax dip. There's a coating on my hands, but it feels smooth and comfortable. My hands weren't really dry at all to begin with, but I could see this stuff working miracles.

Highly recommended.

I used to use this, but I like Aveda's "Hand Relief" better.

I tried out the new "Fast Absorbing" formula, and I'm in love.

Thanks for pointing out the product - from a fellow clueless person.

crabtree and evelyn do a great 'la source' hand cream with a fantastic hand recovery scrub for before, but i can confirm i have at least four tubes of neutrogena hand cream floating around, so i'm never without! they just launched a new version called 'fast absorbing hand cream' which is just the hand cream they do in a pot, only it's in a tube now. just like the hand cream above, but no residue or anything.

A great cheap scrub for hands or body? A little bit of olive oil and a 1/2 teas. of salt or sugar. It is messy, but great. The oil keeps the solid moving and because you wash it off with water, the salt/sugar can disolve! I have used it on my face (sugar) when desperate and because the sugar is suspended in oil and then washed off with water no little hard particulates were left behind to become white heads.

I can visibly see the lines on my hands and feet. I can also see lines around my eyes and face. I used to use Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream for my hands. Should I continue using it for my hands? What can I use for my feet? Can I use the Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream for my feet? Is it safe to do so? Should I just use Qv Face revitalising eye cream under my eyes and a mousturiser for my face? I am 14 years old by the way

Treatment for Acne

I've suffered from worst dry skin problem from last 10 yrs and have spent a fortune on creams to remedy. I consulted so many of experts for solution. But now I got a free sample of this cream at a dermatologist’s office and I've finally found something that works. I use it daily and can't believe how wonderful it is, and inexpensive.
