Looking for the perfect anti ageing hand cream? Mr. O and I have been testing some lately.

Following hand washing (obviously I have something to say about that), you need to moisturise your hands often. For us, we choose to do it every evening after dinner when we are watching TV – some do it before bed, whenever you choose to apply hand cream, it is totally up to you.

We have been looking for hand creams that do a bit more than just hydrating – anti ageing properties have been valued by us. It is difficult to compare which hand cream is better than the other, so here is a selection of creams we have bought and used recently (and bought more than once).

Elemis Pro-radiance Hand and Nail Cream, 100ml
