I have to admit my hands do not get that well looked after or cared for - I tend to do my washing up in scalding hot water marigold-free, I forget to put gloves on in cold weather and in addition to that I work in an air conditioned office. As a result my nails can be quite brittle, and the skin on my hands tends to dry out and become uncomfortable, particularly when I am at work so I do like to have a nice hand cream to keep in my desk drawers to give me comfort throughout the day. I got the Clarins Hand and Nail treatment cream as one of the three travel sized freebies offered when buying my regular products at Boots. The tube contains 50ml and is a decent size which is great for a free offer, particularly as 100ml usually costs £18.

The cream comes in a white tube with the usual Clarins style packaging - the Clarins logo and product name/details in red with a gold band round the lid. I love the simplicity and consistency of Clarins packaing meaning everything looks lovely on the shelf together.

The product itself is a light cream colour and is thick but a lot lighter feeling than most hand creams. As I find with most Clarins products you only need to use the tiniest amount - I find that less than a five pence piece size of cream is enough for both my hands up to the top of my wrists and my nails. As I need such a small amount I have found that even the small size tube has lasted me two months and there is still plenty left. The cream has a lovely light fragrance to it which lasts for quite a while after use.

Although the cream goes a long way it rubs in really easily and is quickly absorbed into my skin and nails so there is none of the nasty feeling of my skin being coated as with some cheaper hand creams. My skin feels soft immediately and I have noticed over time that I has improved the condition of both my skin and nails.

Although I loved this product I really couldn't bring myself to spend £18 on hand cream, particularly when I don't put in the ground work to protect them from the elements in the first place. However freebies are so frequently available on Clarins counters in my local John Lewis, Boots and other department stores that I'm sure I'll get my hands on some more free before long!
