We developed O’Keeffe’s Working Hands specifically for the people who need it most. Our highly-concentrated unique formula was developed to hydrate and relieve the skin to provide long-lasting moisturisation for even the most severe cases of dry, cracked hands. 


When the skin’s upper layers are disrupted and damaged, it has a much harder time holding onto the hydration it needs to stay healthy. This leads to dry, cracked and painful skin. O’Keeffe’s Working Hands not only prevents moisture loss from occurring, but it also draws moisture into the skin to get your hands back into working shape, quickly. The protective barrier seals in the hydration for long-lasting relief. 


For best results, use O’Keeffe’s Working Hands throughout the day as needed. Apply sparingly, a little goes a long way!

Miracle product
Amazing product and worth every penny in my eyes. Transformed my dads working hands and he now swears by it. Noticed my daughters hands were very dry and scaly last night, used a bit of this and today they’re normal Again!

Hand cream
Best hand cream out there, where other brands fail because for all their claims they simply don't work was fed up wasting my money, I will only buy this fab brand now.

Best hand cream I’ve tried
I never normally write reviews however this hand cream has truly stunned me (in a good way!). Picked this up around a fortnight ago as I saw it was on offer in my local boots and thought I'd give it a try. In winter I suffer with flakey, scaley, rough, cracked, the list goes on.. hands. You literally only need a pea size of this stuff (too much and your hands will be sticky). My hands are as smooth as silk. No flakiness, no cracks. No nothing, just smooth skin. Will recommend this to anyone who had the same problem as me!

Best hand cream
This hand cream is amazing, little goes a long way. Working in the hospital environment, my hands get so dry from over washing, and they often crack, however this is the only hand cream that has prevented this

Working hands down, the best hand cream i’ve used!
I love this product so much, I wanted to review. I'm a nurse, washing my hands countless times a day REALLY dries this skin. I have been using O'keeffe's for about a year now. Wouldn't use anything else! I'm glad Boots have started selling it, and at a decent price. May seem expensive, but each tub lasts so long. I recommend it to everyone I work with.

Before application of o'keeffe's working hands cream, and after application of o'keeffe's working hands cream Representative Photos: Two week usage period. O’Keeffe’s Working Hands cream was applied before bed and three times daily. Results may vary.
