We don’t cover cosmetics in OE as such, but this is a useful addition to the wash kit. It’s a non-perfumed hand cream for dry and chapped hands, feet or anywhere else that’s exposed to the elements. It’s purports to have all sorts of natural goodies inside, including vitamin E and aloe vera, and crucially for me, no Parabens (said to be carcinogenic). It’s a 100ml tube, which is a bit big to carry around on a backpack, but you could always decant it into something smaller, and conversely a small amount does seem to go a long way. I suffer from cracked and painful cuticles in the winter, and this cream has worked a treat on my long-suffering mitts, without being at all greasy, which leaves me to get on with the fun outdoor stuff quickly – don’t really want a slippery lube when biking or scrambling! This does exactly what it says on the tin, is gender neutral and made in the UK. If only everything were this simple!
