Did you know that hand masks are a thing? I mean, I feel like everyone knows about face masks, but HAND masks?! Brilliant. Like most people who live in a place where it gets cold, my poor hands get so dry in the winter. I’ve tried basically every kind of hand lotion and cream out there, but this year I learned about hand masks. So, I ordered three different brands to try: Natural Hand Mask, Aveeno Repairing CICA Hand Mask, and Mond’Sub Honey and Almond Nourishing Hand Cream Mask.
Let’s take a look:
Natural Finland Korean Shea Butter Spa Treatment
3 set for $8.90 (buy it here)
Amazon Rating: 4/5 stars
What they promise: Utilizing innovative Korean skincare techniques, the specialist ingredients used to create this mask have all been carefully selected for their nourishing properties. Containing rose flower, shea butter, mineral oil, collagen and vitamin E, this expert blend provides deeply-penetrating moisture to the entire hand area – including nails and cuticles.
My thoughts: Out of the three hand masks I tried, this was my least favorite option. I liked that the gloves kept the treatment inside of them, and I did use them for the recommended 20 – 30 minutes. However, when I took the gloves off my hands just felt wet. Like it was more of a serum than a lotion. I didn’t notice any long-lasting difference with this one.
Aveeno Repairing CICA Hand Mask
Hand and Foot mask combo set for $6.79 on Amazon (buy it here)
Amazon Rating: 4.5/5 stars
What they promise: These skin relief gloves are enriched with shea butter and moisturizing prebiotic oat—known to have soothing and nourishing properties—to help restore essential moisture to extra-dry skin, leaving your hands visibly soft, smooth, and healthy-looking. From a dermatologist-recommended brand, these non-drip CICA masks are formulated to be gentle enough for sensitive skin and are both paraben- and fragrance-free.
My thoughts: I bought mine at Target, but the deal on Amazon is much better for a combo of the hand mask and foot mask. This one is kind of what I imagined – basically some gloves with lotion squirted inside. To be honest, it felt exactly like I had just used a couple squirts of my Aveeno lotion and stuck some paper/rubber gloves on. It worked nice (and I might have really liked the foot version if I had tried it), but it wasn’t anything special.
Mond’Sub Honey and Almond Nourising Hand Cream Mask
2 set for $6.99 (buy it here)
Amazon Rating: 4.5/5 stars
What they promise: These masks are formulated with all-natural almond, honey ingredients and botanical extracts that absorb quickly to deeply moisturize dry hands and keep your hands looking and feeling smooth.
My thoughts: This was my FAVORITE set of hand masks that I tried. The gloves fit well (with space if you have larger hands) and the cream went on nice and thick. I left them on for 20 minutes and when I pulled my hands out… they almost looked like they were covered in honey. I rubbed the excess off on my tummy and the rest of it soaked right in within a few minutes. They were a little sticky feeling for about 5 minutes or so. However, my hands actually felt and looked much more moisturized after using this mask. I would totally recommend this one and it’s pretty reasonably priced too!
