Skincare stalwarts Neutrogena have just re-released the Norwegian Formula Anti Age Hand Cream SPF20 – a robust moisturiser and protector that works hard for your hands, with moisturising glycerin and vitamin E. The formula has just been upgraded; the original Norwegian Formula dates back to 1972. As Neutrogena skincare expert Rebecca Bennett notes: “Our busy hands very often do not get the attention they deserve until there’s a problem. They are not only one of the first places to show dryness but also ageing, sun damage and pigmentation spots. A formula with built in SPF that provides immediate comfort can be a real skin saviour, but when it absorbs well and is a pleasure to use like this one, you will find it so much easier to build into your daily skincare routine.” There aren’t many beauty classics you can bag for under a fiver, all year round, but this is one. €4.50 at pharmacies nationwide,
