Lanolips Rose Balm Intense For Very Dry Hands & Nails!

I got given this as a birthday present and I felt I just had to post about it sooner rather than later because I’ve been rather impressed by it already. I know it was only my birthday on Monday, but I’ve been using it ever since the weekend (I got given it early) twice per day so feel like I’ve given it a decent amount of usage to be able to form an opinion. Now I am not a fan of rose scents at all, they always remind me of hair removal creams for some reason and some actually make me gag... not good.

So why did I decide to ask for Lanolips ROSE balm intense on my birthday list? Well purely because it said that it was an intense balm for very dry hands (and nails) and this seemed like it could be exactly what I needed as my hands get so dry that I just had to ignore my intense dislike of rose scented products to give it a try. I have been pleasantly surprised by the scent to be honest, I don’t love it but then it doesn’t have me gagging either which is half the battle already won for me. As you can see in the picture below that shows the amount I usually use for both my hands - and that's me being generous with it.

The balm IS very heavy and thick and it does take a bit of working to get it all over my hands but when it does, I just love the silky velvety feeling that I’m left with. Now this isn’t something that is suitable for everybody, if your hands are not in need of massive hydration then I suggest you get the lesser intense cream instead as it does also sit very heavily on the hands after application, even on my hands that are incredibly dry at times, so I tend to use it when I know I don’t really need to do or touch anything for a while, just to give it a chance to soak in.

The results? Well it hasn’t cured me of all my ills but it has left my hands a lot more moisturised and nourished and not just in the moments after using it either like a lot of other hand creams. I’ve gone from applying hand cream quite constantly throughout the day to just twice with this stuff (once in the morning and once before bed) so I will definitely continue to use it – although I will still use other hand creams, because I WANT to, not because I HAVE to which will be lovely.

It’s well worth the £8.99 price tag (for 50ml) to me and is available at Victoria Health and also I believe is now stocked in Boots too (although priced at £9.18 there)!


  1. I have seen this reviewed a good few times now and its always got positive reviews!! really wanna try this now!!

  2. I don't think you'd regret trying it if your hands are dry. :-)
