Review: Yves Rocher Long-Lasting Moisturising Hand Cream*

I was recently sent a few bits and pieces from French beauty brand Yves Rocher to try out, one of which was their Long-Lasting Moisturising Hand Cream*, which I was super-keen to try as I really struggle with dry hands, due to how much I have to wash them at work!
Review Yves Rocher Long Lasting Moisturising Hand Cream
I really like the way the cream is presented, in a sunny yellow plastic tube with an easy-to-use flip-cap. The product information is printed in both French and English, which is helpful; my GCSE French will only get me so far with beauty products, unfortunately! The English version gives you the following information: "Formulated with protective organic arnica, this cream cares for your hands: • It instantly and lastingly moisturises • It offers protection from external aggressions • Your skin regains its supple softness. Apply daily. Gently massage until cream is absorbed."
Yves Rocher Hand Beauty Care
I've been keeping this tube on my bedside table as the 75ml size is just a little too large for carrying around with me; I tend to keep a tube of hand-cream in my pocket at work to apply on-the-go, so this would just be a bit on the bulky side. I apply this at bedtime and first thing in the morning, using roughly the amount shown below and massaging gently until it's absorbed; I find the cream soaks in fairly quickly and leaves my hands feeling smooth but not sticky or greasy. There's a pleasant floral/botanical-type scent to the product which fades upon application, lasting only a minute or two on the hands.
Yves Rocher Long Lasting Moisturising Hand Cream
Formulated without parabens and using natural oils and waxes in place of petroleums and paraffins, this hand cream is ideal for my dry & sensitive eczema-prone skin; it's been working well to keep my hands at the dry-and-itchy level, rather than cracked-and-sore as they often are, particularly during the colder winter months! If you're looking for an affordable and effective natural hand cream, this is a great place to start and one I'd definitely recommend picking up! Yves Rocher Long-Lasting Moisturising Hand Cream is priced at £3.90 for 75ml of product, though it's currently better than half price at just £1.80, which makes it an absolute bargain!! It's also available in a handbag-friendly 30ml tube, priced at just £1.50.
