I was combing the cosmetic aisles looking for a shower gel when I spotted Neutrogena’s new Comforting Butter Hand Cream in the same area of the other Neutrogena products. Of course, as a cosmetic junkie, I had to investigate. Well, it ended up at the counter and home with the rest of my hand creams.
Neutrogena came up with another product and appropriately named it Comforting Butter Hand Cream with a butter cream scent. What makes this cream so different from other hand creams with similar ingredients?
Neutrogena’s Comforting Butter Hand Cream states that its product can turn extra-dry hands into totally touchable skin without a greasy after-feel. The Comforting Butter Hand Cream also claims that using their product will produce softer, smoother and touchable hands.
Comforting Butter Hand Cream does live up to both claims on the back of the tube and the ones on the website: http://www.neutrogena.com/ProductsDetails_381.asp?lProductLineID=12. I purchased Neutrogena’s Comforting Butter Hand Cream at a chain discount store for $6.99 plus tax and was not disappointed. The three key ingredients are cocoa butter to nourish the skin’s surface, shea butter to seal in moisture, and mango butter to soften and moisturize the skin.
Three weeks ago I tried Neutrogena’s Comforting Butter Hand Cream and found that it made a difference right away. My hands were visibly softer, smoother and moisturized. Neutrogena’s Comforting Butter Hand Cream is yellow and has the consistency of room temperature butter. It goes on smooth and is immediately absorbed into the skin. There was no residue or shininess, my hands were well moisturized, and the moisturizing effect was long lasting.
Once Neutrogena’s Comforting Butter Hand Cream was absorbed into my skin I experienced no greasy after-feel. However, it did feel like I slipped on very sheer gloves. This glove-like feeling took a little getting used to but the sensation went away after a few days. When I washed my hands the Comforting Butter Hand Cream continued to protect my hands. I found that I did not have to constantly reapply the Comforting Butter Hand Cream very often during a typical eight-hour shift of work.
The scent of the Comforting Butter Hand Cream was not overpowering but definitely smelled like butter cream icing.
For the price, I would recommend purchasing Neutrogena’s Comforting Butter Hand Cream. As usual, Neutrogena has come up with another product that says what it does and delivers on its promises. The other benefit of Neutrogena’s Comforting Butter Hand Cream was that it did not transfer onto clothing. A bonus because I am a cashier at a clothing store and I don’t think the customers would appreciate hand cream on their newly purchased clothing.
