One of E45's newest products to launch is the overnight hand cream. Containing vitamin B3 they claim it helps skins cell regeneration overnight.
The price point is great, at just £3.99 for 50ml and the consistency is thin which means it sinks in easily with no greasy residue, perfect so you don't get greasy prints on your bedsheets! There is no scent which is great as the products would suit anyone, male or female and while my hands can get very dry, it doesn't irritate them at all.
The ingredients list is below. In case you were wondering where the vitamin B3 falls it's other name is Niacinamide, so it's fairly near the top of the ingredients list although it would be helpful to know what percentage is in there. Niacinamide is a great anti ageing ingredient and works on dark patches, dryness and elasticity and is in a lot of higher end and higher price point products such as Dr Jart and Olay Regenerist to name just two.
Ingredients: Aqua, Paraffinum Liquidum, Glycerin, Dimethicone, Cetearyl Alcohol, Glyceryl Stearate, Niacinamide, Sodium Gluconate, Butyrospermum Parkii Butter, Phenoxyethanol, PEG-40 Stearate, Ceteareth-20, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Dimethylimidazolidinone Rice Starch, Ethylhexylglycerin, Helianthus Annus Seed Oil, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis Oil, Polyquaternium-51
Overall, this is a great cheap handcream that I wouldn't just reserve for using at night. Personally I have been using this in conjunction with my favoured Hand Chemistry hand cream (Extreme Hydration Concentration) as they both contain different ingredients and therefore using them both in harmony with each other gives my hands the best boost of all the ingredients, the E45 cream is also much much cheaper. This is much better than most low priced hand creams out there that just contain moisturising ingredients as the Niacinamide will actually work on your skin to make the tone and texture better, it is also (from research I have done on the Internet about the ingredient) a good one to use if your skin is dry because of eczema.
For me, looking after the skin on your hands is just as important as your face, as it's a place that really starts to show ageing. So if you can't afford a pricey hand cream but want something that does contain more than just shea butter and liquid paraffin to moisturise, then give this a go.
