5 days with Neutrogena Norwegian Formula® Hand Cream ♥A BzzReview♥

Neutrogena Norwegian Formula® Hand Cream

As some of you may know, I am a member of BzzAgent and receive products and coupons, often for free and in return I express my thoughts, on these products, through Word of Mouth and also through Facebook, Twitter and Blogger.

Get the Facts
  • Repair your hands, nails and lips with just one small dab
  • Helps keep manicured hands looking beautiful
  • Long-lasting formula
  • Glycerin-rich
  • One bottle equals 200 uses
  • Original scent and Fragrance-Free are both available

This glycerin-rich formula helps lubricate and moisturize rough skin, creating smoothness almost immediately.

Originally, Norwegian fishermen created a glycerin cream for their dry, chapped skin and found that it worked wonders on their aged hands. Neutrogena adopted the fishermen's formula about 40 years ago and has recently been given a 2012 Good Housekeeping Seal. On Neutrogena's website, the Hand Cream has been given a 3.5 star rating.

Day 1


This morning, I applied Neutrogena Hand Cream to my dry hands and cuticles. The smooth formula seeped into the cracked areas of my skin, giving my hands a better look and feel. Even after 6 hours and several hand washings, my hands still feel silky and smooth. I will be reapplying at bedtime and noting any differences that I see or feel, after waking, on Day 2.

Day 2

Morning of day 2, I woke and felt my hands. My hands were smooth feeling and prettier looking than the previous days, before applying the hand cream. I no longer had the dry flakiness all over the back of my hands and knuckles, which is a wonderful thing! I washed my hands and reapplied the hand cream. I love that the hand cream is moisturizing and not oily feeling on my skin. I was scheduled for work this afternoon, so I reapplied the hand cream to my skin, for extra moisture while working with my hands. As of right now, my hands are still smooth and silky feeling and my cuticles are no longer dry. I will reapply at bedtime and wake on day 3, to evaluate the results.

Day 3

Up and getting ready for another work day. It feels great not to have older looking hands! Hand washing is first and after I added the unscented hand cream to my hands. I have definitely noticed that adding more than just a dab of this hand cream gives my hands a really oily feeling. I know now to just add a dab.
While at work, I had forgotten to bring my unscented bottle of the Norwegian Formula Hand Cream, so I did pop an original mini sample of the hand cream into my pocket. At the time when I felt I needed to add moisture back into my hands, I used a dab of the Original scented hand cream. 
The smell of the scented Hand cream was nice, but I felt that the unscented did a better job at moisturizing my skin. The scented felt drying, actually.

Day 4

This is my last day of work for the week, so I decided that I would continue to use the mini scented sample that I had opened and used already. I washed my hands after clocking in for work and applied the hand cream, making sure to get my knuckles and my cuticles really well. I applied more throughout my work day, as needed.

After work, I decided to go ahead give myself a nice little manicure. With my cuticles being nice and soft, it was easy for me to press my cuticles down. I buffed and shined my nails and added a coat of nail hardener.

Day 5

I love the look of my hands! With using both the fragrance-free and the original scent, I have kept my hands and cuticles nice and moisturized. I no longer have the granny hands that I did when I first started this blog! No offense to any older ladies, but being 25 years old, I feel that I most definitely should not have wrinkled hands. My hands are now youthful.


I was able to share samples with an older lady that I work with. I let her know that I am a member of BzzAgent and I received these samples for free. My co-worker, Linda, immediately used her sample before clocking in for work and really took a liking to it. She liked the smell of it and how it moisturized her hands. We both work in a position where we are constantly touching all different types of items and we also use hand sanitizer when we feel we need it the most. Our hands really need the extra moisture it can get from the Hand Cream!


My Hands Now!

One month later and I am still applying the Neutrogena Norwegian Formula® Hand Cream to my hands. My hands still look and feel very nice. I also have the confidence to actually paint my nails pretty colors. I feel that this Hand Cream has done wonders to my skin in such a short period of time and I am satisfied with the results that I am seeing because of it. I will continue to use and will purchase when I eventually run out of the product.

Thank you for taking the time to read my review of the Neutrogena Norwegian Formula® Hand Cream. I have enjoyed testing out this product for BzzAgent. I believe that I have found a product I will continue to use for a long time. As long as Neutrogena continues to make this Hand Cream.
