When it comes to hand creams I have a few faves, but I also like to try new brands. So when I ran out of the AVON cream that I keep at my desk at work I picked up this new stuff at Dollar General. It’s called Udderly Smooth Hand Cream and it was around $2.50 for a 4 oz. tube.
The tube says it was developed for dairy cows, I’m assuming to care for their udders that are always getting tugged at. Poor babies’ boobies!! But I’ll be honest, the fun cow print on the packaging is what motivated me to buy it.
The formula is much more runny than I expected. When I flipped the cap I squeezed the tube to get some of the product to come out. Turns out, squeezing isn’t necessary. It’s very runny, so it oozes right out of the tube on its own. Initially, I was turned off about how thin it was, but I have gotten used to it. There’s an emblem on the tube that states NON GREASY, but doesn’t practically every cream say that? In this case though, it’s true. It absorbs very fast and doesn’t leave an ooey gooey feeling on my hands. It feels much more squeaky clean than other lotions. Also, it has a very mild scent, similar to baby lotion. I like that although it’s not thick and greasy, it does seem to leave my skin soft and smooth. So I’d say this stuff works just fine.
Usually I prefer thicker lotions, and I don’t mind a greasy feel since in my head I figure greasy = moisturizing. But in comparison, Udderly Smooth has a nice light formula. I’d assume that this could be great for people who dislike greasy formulas. And could also be good if you wash your hands multiple times a day, and therefor have to re-apply lotion a lot. This stuff’s convenient since it absorbs fast, has a clean feel to it, and you won’t be leaving moisturized fingerprints all over everything.
So there ya have it! Udderly Smooth Hand Cream.
Hey, did you notice my nail art at all? I’ll be posting these pastel peacock nails tomorrow. See ya then !
UPDATE on May 5, 2014- So I realized that my cream is much runnier than it should be. I spotted another tube at a pharmacy and I shook it and it felt solid. Mine is noticeably very runny! I contacted the company using the email address on their website about 5 days ago. I haven’t heard back yet but I will let you know if they respond. I still have my receipt so I might try to exchange the product at Dollar General. I think the cream is nice, but it’s making a mess since it squirts right out if you open the tube without being really really careful. Not sure what the deal is there!
