Neutrogena Norwegian Formula® Hand Cream provides prompt relief for even seriously dry, chapped hands. It's so concentrated that a small amount instantly leaves dry hands noticeably softer and smoother.

Texture & Scent:
This hand cream feels a little "silicony" hence its a little harder to spread. I like how it sinks in quickly so you can resume using your hands shortly after! haha!! :D This one is fragrance-free so it doesn't have a scent to it! :)
This hand cream comes in a squeeze tube with a screw off cap, which is great for travelling. I also like how small the dispensing hole is so you can control the amount of product that comes through it:

Price & Availability:

I use this at night before i go to bed, as well as once or twice during the day when my hands feel dry.
I was running low on the TBS Almond Hand Cream, so i thought i'd give this one a try since 1. it's soooo cheap, and 2. there're lots of good review on this one. Thinking that i have snagged a drugstore gem, i put this to the test when i was in India where the horribly dry air and even drying dish drops gave me this:
Dry, cracked and peeling skin!! So painful!! T_T
So how did this performed after using it religiously for weeks (and several times a day)? I'm heartbroken to report that it did ZILCH for my hands!! The moment i stopped using this and tried squeezing out every last morsel from the very empty TBS Almond Hand Cream tube, my hands healed within a week!!!
That extreme case apart, i tried it again when i was back home where it's not so dry anymore, but still i see no visible effects - my skin still feels dry and the sides of my nails peeling!! T_T
So it's official... this doesn't work for me, and now i'm just using it for the sake of finishing it! I will not repurchase this one after i'm done with this tube! :(
