Top 5 Hand Creams / 5 najboljih krema za ruke

When Cricket asked me what hand cream could I recommend for her dry hands, I instantly remembered how long it took me to find my favorite hand saviors and how difficult it is to choose the right one for your poor hands, all dried out from harsh winter. Here are my top 5 choices, tried and true.

Kad me Cricket pitala za savjet koju kremu za ruke bih joj preporučila, dobila sam inspiraciju za ovaj post, sjetivši se koliko mi je dugo trebalo da nađem svoje omiljene spasioce suhih ruku, uništenih zimskom hladnoćom. Donosim vam 5 meni omiljenih, isprobanih i provjerenih.


1. First place goes to La Roche-Posay Cicaplast Mains. This new repairing barrier cream soothes, protects and restores the skin barrier for over-worked hands, damaged by aggressions at home or at work, thanks to its formula associating Niacinamid 4% and Glycerin 30%, in an ultra-cosmetic texture letting working back immediately after application. Between us, Niacinamid is a must for every hydrating and skin nurturing product. When you see it on top of the ingredients list, you know you are on a right track. My hands are dry, I have extremely dry and peeling cuticles and this is the best hand cream I have ever found, period. Its texture reminds me of an improved and better Neutrogena hand cream, with the difference that it actually heals your hands and is not as greasy. Price? App. £6 ($10).



Prvo mjesto uzima La Roche-Posay Cicaplast Mains. Nova generacija zaštitne teksture umiruje i obnavlja zaštitni sloj kože (4% niacinamida), štiti kožu i osigurava nevidljiv zaštitni sloj otporan na pranje i trenje (30% glicerina), a njena brzoupijajuća tekstura osigurava nevidljiv, nemastan i neljepljiv sloj. Otkrit ćemo vam tajnu da kad nacinamid vidite visoko na listi sastojaka, na pravom ste putu ako želite svom licu i tijelu osigurati hidrataciju i obnovu stanica. Moje su ruke uvijek suhe, imam problema s njihovom suhoćom i zanokticama i ovo je najbolja krema za ruke koju sam ikad koristila. Tekstura me podsjeća na Neutrogeninu kremu, s tom razlikom da Cicaplast zaista obnavlja kožu i nije toliko masna. Cijena se kreće oko prihvatljivih 55kn.





2. Before La Roche-Posay discovered Cicaplast Mains, there was Lipikar Xerand. This very emollient hand cream helps restore the cutaneous barrier thanks to its moisturizing and repairing components and it also protects the skin from daily stress factors. Lipikar Xerand immediately penetrates and is non-greasy. The second best thing to Cicaplast and is suitable for those who need a quick hand pick-me-up. Price? Around £5 ($9).


Prije nego što je La Roche-Posay otkrio Cicaplast Mains, postojao je Lipikar XerandZahvaljujući svojim hidratantnim i obnavljajućim sastojcima, krema obnavlja hidrolipidni sloj i kožu čini elastičnom i mekom. Za veći osjećaj ugode, ostavlja lagan, nemasni sloj koji prodire u kožu. Vodootporna je i štiti kožu ruku od svakodnevnih vanjskih faktora. Stepenicu ispod Cicaplasta, oduševit će one koji ne vole masne teksture i vole često namazati ruke kremom. Cijena? Oko 45 kn.



3. Jack Black Industrial Strength Hand Cream, formally called Jack Black Industrial Strength Hand Healer is a rich, non-greasy formula that helps heal and soothe dry, chapped, cracked hands. Road-tested by golfers, carpenters and chefs, this hard-working hand cream repairs tough, calloused skin and cuticles, providing lasting relief. Especially effective for those who wash their hands a lot or spend time outdoors in rugged temperatures; because the palms and back of your hands have the fewest and smallest oil glands, they tend to get the driest. It is also fragrance-free, colorant-free and dermatologist tested. If it is good for men, known for being picky when it comes to cosmetics, it sure is for all of us. Price is app. £14,50 ($24).


Jack Black Industrial Strength krema za ruke, ranije poznata pod nazivom Jack Black Industrial Strength Hand Healer (iscjeljujuća krema za ruke industrijske snage) bogate je i nemasne teksture koja pomaže iscijeliti i umiriti suhe, oštećene i isušene ruke. Iskušana na rukama golfera, stolara i kuhara, ova marljiva krema obnavlja tvrdu kožu punu žuljeva i zanoktica, te omogućava dugotrajne rezultate. Osobito je učinkovita ukoliko često perete ruke i provodite puno vremena vani na ekstremnim temperaturama. Kako dlanovi i same ruke imaju najmanje lojnih žlijezda, najviše se isuše. Ne sadrži mirise, boje i dermatološki je testirana. Ako je dobra za muškarce, za koje znamo da su izrazito izbirljivi kad je posrijedi kozmetika, znamo da je dobra za sve nas. Cijena se kreće oko 140kn.



4. L'Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream is a super-smoothing and best-selling synergy of 20% Shea Butter, honey and sweet almond extract, blended with the light and alluring aromas of jasmine and ylang-ylang essences. Texturally pleasing balm glides on and absorbs to help heal and protect dry or dehydrated skin. Anti-oxidising vitamin E helps nourish and invites even the most hard-working hands to a fresh beginning. Excellent choice for your purse or days when you want to treat yourself. Available in travel and XL sizes as well. 150ml is £19 ($28,50).


L'Occitane karite krema za ruke obogaćena je s čak 20% karite maslaca, pravi je balzam za ruke. Bogate, kremaste teksture koja se brzo i potpuno upija, bez masnih ostataka pruža koži zaštitu, njegu i hidrataciju. Spoj karite maslaca, kokosovog ulja te ekstrakta meda i badema pruža iznimno učinkovitu njegu ruku. Raskošna tekstura čini ruke iznimno mekima. Idealan izbor za dane kad se želite počastiti. Dostupna je i u putnoj, kao i XL varijanti. 150ml stoji oko 160kn.




5. Estee Lauder 'Re-Nutriv' Intensive Smoothing Hand Creme is one of the most indulgent hand creams ever created. Formulated with precious moisturizing ingredients and advanced anti-spot technology, this sumptuous creme deeply hydrates as it helps reduce the look of dark spots. Visibly smoothes away crepiness. Hands look younger and more supple. Skin remains soft and moisturized, even after multiple washings. I love how it leaves my hands soft and wrinkle-free, but its steep price reminds me that it is merely a treat or gift with purchase I rarely find. Keep still my heart as the price is app. £37 ($55).


Estee Lauder 'Re-Nutriv' intenzivna umirujuća krema za ruke jedan je od najgrešnijih tretmana koje si možete priuštiti. Sadrži dragocjene hidratantne sastojke i naprednu tehnologiju protiv mrlja, te duboko vlaži i smanjuje hiperpigmentaciju. Vidljivo smanjuje neželjene borice na rukama, koje izgledaju mlađe i mekše. Koža ostaje mekana i nahranjena, čak i nakon više pranja, Sviđa mi se kako su od nje ruke meke i bez mrskih borica, ali (jako) visoka cijena podsjeti me da je ovaj tretman samo za izrazito rijetka čašćenja ili poklončića kojeg dobijete uz kupnju ostalih proizvoda. Sjednite jer se cijena kreće oko 330kn.
