    Un incontournable été comme hiver !

  2. Nathalie M (verified owner)

    Excellente crème pour les mains… et les pieds ! Adoucit la peau, notamment les cuticules que je masse avec. Sèche rapidement, odeur de Gallinée que j’adore. Un must-have ! ( les mini-formats en échantillons sont super pour le sac à main, un format “entre-deux” serait super pour emporter partout 🙂 )

    The hand cream allowed me to have the first contact with the brand. I must say that I haven’t regretted it. Simple, practical and the same time beautiful packaging . The cream really works. It has a texture that moisturizes without being greased, a light, refined fragrance that offers you a sensory experience. Ideal for male hands

  4. varia.zdanowicz

    Lovely pampering experience every time I use this cream. It absorbs easily without leaving a greasy film so it’s good to use anytime. My hands are soft and nourished and never feel dry even with multiple washes during the day.

  5. Alicia (verified owner)

    My hands are super delicate and tend to dry a lot and this cream has been truly magical. I love that is gentle and doesn’t leave an oily or sticky residue after use. I’m rebuying 100%!

  6. Leo (verified owner)

    Great Hand Cream.
    It helped to heal my dry skin hands after washing so much and applying hand-sanitiser due the pandemic.
    The Gallinee lotion was soft and I would apply before bed and still have the cream by morning when washing my hands.
    Really recomend for some healing and hand care.

  7. Sala Davis (verified owner)

    This is a really nice product that doesn’t come off sticky on your hands. It’s thicker than the Body Milk which I like. Small easy- to-fit size for my hand bag.

  8. Nazanin Jafari (verified owner)

    This product has become my first choice of handcream, i have sensitive skin, if I use bad quality handwash or exposed to sunlight without sunscreen my hands gets itchy. So I tried many products that only helped temporarily until I was introduced to Gallinee, a great product that indeed does what it promises. Not just a relief, the good bacteria restored my skin! So happy I have found it!

  9. Bethan Griffiths (verified owner)

    Love this! Super moisturizing and smells heavenly. Definitely recommend

  10. Dafne Swiers (verified owner)

    I love this hand cream! It doesn’t leave my hands feeling sticky and it makes them so, so soft, even when they were dry or cracked! The smell is also nice and not overpowering, so great product overall!

  11. Marie Wood (verified owner)

    Brilliant hand cream lovely fragrance and amazing texture was an issue with order that was resolved immediately customer service second to none highly recommend my mum has very dry cracked hand only having use of one hand you can imagine the ware and tear this has eased her hand and made it look and feel great thank you

  12. Jenna (verified owner)

    The ideal consistency for a hand cream – thick, buttery, enveloping – but still sinks in nicely. Moisturises well and smells great.

  13. Fiona Fitzgerald (verified owner)

    Love this hand cream – absorbs quickly and no sticky residue. Been trying different brands for a while and I’ve no need to try any more!

  14. Christine Wetzler (verified owner)

    I bought this hand cream after reading an article about its benefits for chapped hands. The cream has a slight and pleasant smell and really works. Frankly, it’s the only cream that did work well after washing my hands so frequently.

  15. Amanda (verified owner)

    Pleasant scent – not too strong. Good consistency, effective & great to apply while you’re waiting to talk on a WFH Zoom meeting! Yet to try on my feet…

  16. kayoungtexier (verified owner)

    I really enjoy this cream. I have tried several hand cream before this one. I have eczema on my hands and I do think it has helped with it , I have less eczema and my hands are less irritable than it use to be. I am already on my third bottle!

  17. Anna

    This is one the best hand cremes I’ve used. I boulder and climb and so my hands get very very very dry. However, this cream helps. Only problem is that it takes a while to absorb, so my keyboard always ends up greasy.

  18. amoureux de ma camellia

    Initially I didn’t really think this hand cream was going to impress me much as soon as I saw that the texture is quite light but I was so wrong!

    I suffer from really dry skin and tend to cause further dry out due to washing and sanitize my hands at a manic rate. Usually I tend to opt for rich creams, and balms applied over an HA serum which restores my hands to feel comfortable. Enter Gallinee… This hand cream has been such a surprise for me as I wouldn’t have thought it would manage to soothe and moisturize in the amazing way it has performed. Prior to first application my hands were peeling and within a day the skin was restored to normal, no dryness just smooth and soft skin.

    What I also love is that unlike many hand creams this doesn’t pill up/flake off when you massage it in . It absorbs quickly without any clammy sensations making it perfect to use as a daytime hand cream.

    For a more intensive treatment action I like to apply this hand cream thickly once a week and use it as a hand mask and wear cotton gloves for a few hours or overnight for deeper action. I also started to use this product as a foot cream and works just as amazing in keeping my feet soft.

  19. Roby

    This cream is quickly absorbed without leaving greasy residues and leaves the skin with a velvety finish. It smells lovely.

  20. sofia8753 (verified owner)

    Another Gallinée product that I loved! I received this hand cream as part of a Black Friday offer so I’ve been using it for a couple of months. it surprised me how such a lightweight cream could be so effective! It absorbs very quickly leaving a nice aroma. I also used it on my feet a couple of times with great results! I will be buying the Body Set soon the try the whole range of products.

  21. Novlyn

    I generally struggle with a lot of dryness on my hands and they look ugly.This cream is great.I use it day and night ,very little is enough with a good massage on my hands.My hands now are beautiful ,stay moisturized and healthy looking.And believe me I used it on my foot!!! .I use it at night and protect it with a pair of sock keeping my feet warm.My feet are kissable. Hahahaha!!! Muaah Gallinee!!!

  22. Faye Marisa

    This miracle hand cream helped with my eczema! It’s very hydrated and smells amazing I could not stop sniffing my hands. Only problem is that I used a lot of these and it ran out too quickly.

  23. andriaj.cooke

    Usually just use body lotion but from now on will be using a hand cream!

  24. vvwilson68 (verified owner)

    Hello. Of course, I’m not a chemist-technologist and I do not know how the triobiotics / or the complete composition / of this cream behave on a microscopic level. But for two weeks of usage I have noted that I do not feel any promised hydrating and softening properties, but even opposite, the skin has become rougher, especially on the bones of fingers and toes (dry and hard). I’m puzzled.
    I would like to note that the scent of the cream is nice and the cream is quickly absorbed.

  25. Paulina Bojarska

    Great product, leaves my skin very soft. Love the smell and texture, is not greasy or sticky like many hand creams I’ve tried.

  26. Clare Shaddick

    One hand cream I will be replacing when it runs out as it absorbs into my skin fast leaving no greasy residue so I’m happy to use it any-time / any-where unlike other hand creams that then mean my hands leave greasy paw prints on my phone etc …..

  27. Jill

    I love this product, I keep it in my desk drawer at work as it absorbs in quickly and leaves no greasy residue like other hand creams, plus it smells amazing 🙂 although it probably does look a little odd when I am smelling my own hands looking happy, but sure whatever gets you through the day, plus at this price its a win win, you have a high end product without paying the high end price tag!


Frequent questions answered by our founder and Doctor of Pharmacy.

Marie Drago

Marie Drago

Why are my hands so dry?

Hands usually get dry due to a lack of lipids (natural moisturising fats) which your skin needs to stay hydrated. This can occur for several reasons:

Washing: When you wash your hands with an alkaline pH soap (which gives that ‘squeaky clean’ feeling) or an antibacterial gel which contains alcohol, you can destroy the protective barrier and remove lipids.

Cold weather: Lots of people notice that they get dry hands more in winter months. This is usually due to the lower levels of humidity in the air that can dry out your skin.

Age: As we get older, your skin slows down the production of lipids, hormones and natural oils which keep your skin hydrated.

The best way to keep your hands hydrated is to use a gentle hand wash or soap, and by rehydrating with a hand cream to replenish your skin’s protective barrier.

How to get rid of my dry hands?

Dry hands are usually easy to remedy. Here are our top three strategies:

  • First, respect the skin barrier. Use gentle and pH-balanced hand wash and soaps.
  • Then, moisturise! Rebuild the skin barrier with hand creams. Some are lights and others are heavy, but they should all help the lipids to rebuild on the surface of your skin.
  • Lastly, get your nutrition right: a diet that’s rich in essential fatty acids can help with better hydration of the skin, think fish, nuts and seeds.

How to get soft hands?

It’s easy to get soft hands if the skin barrier is strong and well-hydrated with good hand cream.

If you use your hands a lot (e.g. you get “gym hands” from working out or calluses from gardening) use hand cream regularly throughout the day. Hand cream with an AHA (alpha hydroxy acid) such as lactic acid is great: it will get rid of extra dead skin and give you back soft and supple hands.

How to apply hand cream?

Apply hand cream like a pro by using the back of your hands.

You want to apply a small dollop of hand cream to the back of one hand, rub the back of your hands together, and then massage into the palms and all the way to the cuticles. This is because your palms don’t need as much as the back of your hands. Another top tip is to use any leftover cream on your elbows –  a dry spot we often forget!

Can a hand cream be lightweight and nourishing?

Yes, of course – greasy does not mean hydrating! As long as you reform the skin barrier, a hand cream will protect and hydrate your hands. Our hand cream is a great example -the texture is light, but the prebiotics will work hard to nourish and repair. Forget sticky and greasy hand creams and opt for a light but tough version like ours

What is shea butter?

Shea butter is a great skincare product that is made from the nuts of a shea tree. It is a natural miracle ingredient: non-greasy and very nourishing, shea butter will deeply hydrate the skin. It is also good for improving micro-circulation, hand texture and skin radiance

What are the age spots on my hands?

Age spots (also known as lentigo) are little brown spots the colour and shapes of lentils caused by prolonged sun exposure. 

They are caused by the concentrated production of melanin – a pigment which gives skin its colour. Age spots usually appear later in life as it takes a long time for this to occur and usually appear in the zones exposed to the sun: face (i.e. freckles!), hands and neck in particular. You can help to prevent them by using an SPF and reducing exposure to UV rays.

How to reduce the age spots on my hands?

Age spots aren’t easily gotten rid of once they are on your skin. Our advice is to prevent rather than remove them, here’s how:

  • Protect your hands with SPF, and avoid sun exposure
  • You can use products that will help to slow down melanin production that causes age spots: kojic acid and mulberry extract, as well as daisy extract and AHAs (two ingredients we include in our hand cream), can also help.
