What's in it for you?

When you need a hand cream that works as hard as your hands, Handy Gurugu is it. It's our thickest hand cream made with a nutty blend of cashew, almond and pumpkin seed butters to deliver serious hydration to dry, cracked hands. It's also packed with a healthy serving of fair trade organic shea butter, which is easily absorbed and sourced from a Ghanaian women's cooperative that creates it using traditional methods. This is a truly fabulous, easily absorbed cream that leaves you with soft, herbal-scented hands.

Best hand cream on the market

This is simply the best hand cream I ever had. I tried many but have never found better. Handy Gurugu achieves a rare feat -- the perfect balance between an extremely hydrating cream and a very smooth, non-greasy, easily absorbed texture. Contrary to other Lush products, the smell is not great but that does not really matter considering how amazing the cream works. I have kept buying it over and over and will not stop.

Nothing better

There is nothing better for soft suple hands. It smells devine isn't greasy and the tub lasts such a long time. My hands get super dry, especially in winter, and this is the best epoduct to have them feeling soft and smooth. If only Lush would bring back the coconut salt hand scrub becuase that was their best ever product and worked really well with this hand cream.

Ab Fab and then some!!

This arrived today and my hands are already thanking me! The scent is subtle and calming, it's a very thick cream which is going to last for ages! it's the back of my hands that are the problem, being so dry, flaky and prone to cracking (sometimes so bad it can bleed) especially in winter and heading into Spring (and I'm tired of having to *hide* them because I'm embarassed they look so bad).and I've a feeling this cream is going to be a great help!

Warning! Great hand cream inbound!

My partner hates the feeling of hand cream and this one works wonders for him, it’s amazing to apply and soaks up so nicely into skin leaving no oily or thick residue behind plus it smells wonderful! I bought some for my mum who doesn’t trust hand creams at all but she can’t stop putting it on now and her hands are so much softer, I often catch her just opening the tub to smell it.
Thank you so much for making such an excellent product! 10/10 recommend!

So moisturising

Really moisturising, perfect for dry hands especially in the winter. I apply when I'm in bed just before going to sleep and my hands are so soft in the morning.
