Do you use a hand exfoliator?

This is something I''ve come across fairly recently. I do a lot of gardening, and although I wear gloves, sometimes you just have to use your hands for some fiddly tasks. As a result, I have to wash my hands and scrub my nails really well, and my poor hands can look a bit sorry for themselves even when I''ve applied lots of hand cream.

I saw a hand exfoliator when I was browsing in a shop on Saturday, and I bought it without having any huge expectations of it. I used it as soon as I got home, as well as morning and evening yesterday. The result is that my hands are quite a bit softer and smoother, and they look much better.

Has anyone here tried a hand exfoliator before?

You can just use a normal body scrub. Personally I wouldn''t buy one just for the hands, it is a good marketing tool, but not necessary. I always exfoliate my hands and feet in the bath. It is a bit like hand cream, it is just in a tube for convenience with the same product as a body lotion, maybe a little thicker.

I guess you''re probably right on that score, Thea. I''ve always used a separate hand cream/lotion, but several times after using body lotion, I''ve noticed that my hands are often softer than when I use a hand lotion!

I''m pretty sure most of these things are great marketing tools, but I have to confess that I''''m a sucker for a new product, especially if it''s in pretty packaging.

I do a lot of gardening, too! I know how drying it can be for the hands. I don''t really use a specificnhand exfoliator. I just use my body scrub to remove the dead skin cells on my hands. However, I do use a hand cream sometimes. I buy it from Etude House.

Gardening really messes up my hands! I do wear gardening gloves as much as possible, but as you probably know, it''s impossible to do what you need to do sometimes with gloves on. My hands can often feel horrible after a gardening session, so I spend the rest of the day and evening pampering them with hand cream and now the exfoliating scrub.

BTW, does anyone know if the Body Shop still does the hemp hand cream? That used to be really good for my hands, but I haven''t seen it for a while.

No, I don''t use exfoliator for my hands. I do work in the garden sometimes, so my hands do tend to get dry. What I do sometimes is put the exfoliator I use for my face on my hands. Then I put some cream on my hands and that seems to do the job.

After doing this, my hands feel smoother and hydrated.

I use a hand exfoliator and love it. The product I use is from Crabtree and Evelyn and is specifically for the hands and I like it that way because it has multiple oils in it to moisturize my hands. I use the product 2-3 times a week and then follow it up with some extra thick hand cream.
