Yes, Nurse! Intensive Moisturising Hand Formula

We’re slightly putting our reputations on the line here – but we don’t think you’ll ever find a better hand cream, at a better price, than this.

The name may sound like something out of a Carry On film – but this is really very special, packed with (almost totally natural) ingredients including lashings of almond, wheatgerm, pomegranate seed and passion fruit seed oils, white willow bark extract, aloe vera and manuka honey.  It’s as rich as it sounds, but it sinks in to leave hands satin-soft.

The story behind it’s really inspiring:  26-year-old paediatric nurse Antonia Steven developed it when she was herself signed off work because her sore, cracked hands (the result of frequent hand washing and use of those beastly-if-necessary sanitizers) were actually posing an infection control risk.  Yes! Nurse is the result, after it soothed not only her hands but universally those of her colleagues.

And now it’s worked its magic on Jo’s. Following a recent wrist operation, she was suffering from ‘handruff’ – the hand equivalent of dandruff, with skin so dry it was flaking off.  After a single application of this extraordinary cream her skin was back to normal and is now healthy and moisturised again.

So we will most definitely be carrying on, with this.  Oh, yes, nurse.
