The hand cream was a gift.
Cream does not have that weird chemical flowery or urea mixed with perfume smell like most other hand creams. It is subtle (yes, just a tad, hint of urea is there, but not too offensive as it is covered with essential oils in the formula).
Absorbs quickly and does not leave hands greasy, just I have that feeling of my skin being 'coated' in something (almost waxy). I can only use it overnight as trough the day I keep washing my hands all the time. It leaves my hands soft in the morning. Did not notice any benefits in terms of repair, but it maintains the skin health and prevents drying out. As the cream comes in a huge tub of 150mL I started to use it on my feet too overnight. . I feel that my feet are softer in the morning

Don’t be fooled by the packaging this is one amazing product! Fragrance is beautifully subtle, strong enough to notice but after a few minutes it’s gone.
Your hands feel so hydrated and nourished and they stay that way for hours, even after washing your hands they are still hydrated and soft. It’s almost like a barrier cream but without the greasiness.
This hand cream attracted me because of the big size and the claim it said. I have very dry skin so when I read all the ingredient , I fell in love & after using it a few times, I even love this hand cream more! It has nice mild fresh scent and the texture is thick but very easy to apply, it absorb quickly without feeling oily. My hands feel hydrated instantly!
I left this on my workdesk so i can use it anytime of the day and beside since it’s too heavy for my handbag.
I'm a bit of a germaphobe so I wash my hands throughout the day. While liquid hand soap is anti-bacterial and washes away dirt and grime, it can also strip skin of its natural moisture and especially if you wash your hands as often as I do. So to replenish my skins moisture, i have a few hand creams I have on rotation with the NS Working Hands being one of the brands. It comes in a chunky 150g squeeze tube with a flip-tab lid and a very unisex looking colour scheme.
The hand cream or treatment as NS calls it, is a thick, white creamy consistency with the faintest of a citrusy scent. The scent is pleasant but barely even there. While the hand cream is thick, it spreads and sinks into skin easily without leaving a greasy residue. My hands instantly feel hydrated, soft and supple and the feeling lasts hours unlike certain hand creams that make your hands feel rough and dehydrated quickly. I don't even hesitate to shake hands with others at work because when I use the NS hand cream, I know my hands will feel soft and supple to others on contact. Which is why, I notice I reach for this hand cream over other more luxurious brands that I have in rotation.
What's important in a hand cream is not just hydration, but also being practical. I need to be able to use my hands quickly after applying my hand cream.
The NS Working Hands hand cream is the fastest-absorbing hand cream that I have tried, despite it being quick thick in consistency. Upon massaging onto hands, it takes only seconds to absorb. I can almost immediately use my hands for various tasks (e.g. turning door knob; open a magnum wrapper!). At the same time, this hand cream is very effective in that I do not feel that I have to constantly re-applying it. I also feel that my hands remain soft without the need to re-apply every single time after I have washed my hands.
The cream has a subtle lemony smell which I do not mind too much, but it does remind me of dish washing liquid.
The big disadvantage for me is its packaging and gigantic 150mL size. Of course it is excellent value for money, however it looks very out of place on my bedside table next to all the delicate 15mL and 30 mL serums and moisturisers. The design of the tube is also quite... unsightly. The flat tube design is good, however I wish this hand cream comes in a 50mL size so that it looks less chunky and also more convenient for carrying in a hand bag.
Overall, a wonderful hand cream and excellent value for money.
I love hand creams so I took an instant interest in the Nutri-Synergy Skincare NS Working Hands hand cream when I saw it advertised because I knew it would also be beneficial for my husband.
I use hand creams every day so after hearing about the NS Working Hands and then trying it I knew this would be a favourite in my household. My hands are well nourished and looked after but my husband’s hands were a total mess after years of continually having them in water and not looking after them. I’ve recently got him into the habit of using hand cream, especially before going to bed, so when I presented him with the NS Working Hands he immediately claimed it as his.
NS Working Hands definitely lives up to its claims of repairing hands with an intensive, non-greasy treatment that absorbs instantly, leaving skin restored and healthy.
When squeezed from the 150g tube, the hand cream looks thick but it spreads really easily leaving the hands feeling soft and silky. Only a small amount is needed to cover both hands. There is no greasy or tacky feeling and the hands are instantly dry to the touch. There is a really pleasant fragrance which I think is citrus.
I keep a tube of this hand cream on the kitchen sink so we can use it after cooking and washing up, and also another tube in the laundry to use after gardening or outside activities.
I highly recommend this hand cream because it has completely won us over and it is a product I continue to repurchase. .
