Nursem - The Hand Cream making a difference

(Features press samples - see disclaimer)

I think it's safe to say for all of us, this year has featured more handwashing and antibacterial gel than it usually would which in turn has seen many of us suffer from dry and cracked hands. It has meant hand cream has fast become one of our everyday essentials and I've been grabbing my tube of Nursem at every opportunity.

If you haven't already heard of Nursem - it's the hand cream making a difference and one that truly does the job, especially when for every product sold they give a month's worth of free Nursem to a nurse or a midwife.

Nursem was founded by husband and wife team Jonny and Antonia, a paediatric nurse - who knows first hand just how much hands go through with constant washing while looking after patients. Nursem is a passionately advocated brand, loved by nurses, mums and many more. They're on a mission to make sure that every nurse and midwife in the country gets Nursem for free and at the same time to help all other hard-working hands in need.

The average number of times a nurse washes their hands every day is 55, with some washing hands over 100 times per day!

This is where the Nursem Promise comes in - for every product you buy, they give a month's worth of free Nursem to a nurse or midwife which is great because the product was developed with nurses in mind to offer immediate and targeted relief from the effects of relentless hand washing.

The Nursem Promise Packs include enough Caring Hand Cream formula for up to twenty-four nursing staff and so far they've helped heal the hands of thousands of hardworking nurses, providing much-needed skincare relief to facilitate a comfortable working life! 

Shall we take a closer look at the products?

The Caring Hand Cream is fast absorbing and uses naturally derived ingredients to help soothe and protect dry and sore hands. Certified cruelty free, the hand cream contains medical-grade Manuka Honey and White Willow extract as well as a rich blend of Allantoin and Pro-Vitamin B5 which helps to keep our hands moisturised and nourished. 

You'll also find plant oils and Glycerin which restore the protective barrier that retains the skin's moisture and hydration. The non-greasy hand cream is naturally fragranced with Bergamot, Petitgrain and Grapefruit essential oils and is free from parabens, petrolatum, mineral oil and silicone. 

It has also safe to use in hospitals and is the perfect hand cream for nurses, midwives, and any other medical professional in need of natural, effective protection. It's super dreamy to use, smells lush and thanks to the non greasy formula you can carry on with your day as soon as you've applied this - it's such a fab hand cream, one of the best ones I've used in recent years. 

If you're looking for something more intensive, Skin Fix is for you. This is a more intensieve treatment for persistently dry and sore skin and it uses naturally derived ingredients to provide immediate and targeted relief to all areas of the skin.

It contains a mix of pharmaceutical grade Colloidal Oatmeal to calm redness and irritation as well as Hyaluronic Acid to help regenerate skin and Pro Vitamin B5 and Allantoin to fuel the skin's natural ability to repair as quickly as possible. Lastly there is Avocado Oil, Shea Butter and Glycerin to help create a natural barrier to skin while minimising moisture loss.

The Caring Skin Fix is a little thicker and richer than the hand cream, offering immediate relief. The fragrance-free formula is perfect for even the most sensitive skin, and a little goes a long way. We find using it overnight brings the best results. Like all of their products, the skin fix is dermatologically tested, cruelty free and free from parabens, petrolatum, mineral oil and silicone. Plus, this formula is vegan and Consultant Dermatologist approved. 

So as you can see Nursem really is what we need right now plus knowing whenever I purchase a new tube that another tube goes to a nurse is heart warming. 

You can purchase Nursem direct from their website or via Sunday Living, Gorgeous Shop and more!

Have you tried Nursem before?

  7. I'm seeing this brand everywhere at the moment and definitely want to buy some products, both because they sound amazing, but also because of the cause x


  8. I love that they give to nurses - that's such a great initiative. Sounds like a great brand! I'm yet to find a decent handcream actually! x

  12. I worked with Nursem during the first lockdown for my blog and was blown away by their ethos and genuine want to help. Their creams are amazing aren't they, like magic they just work! Gorgeous snaps in this one!


  13. This is the first time I’ve heard of this brand but I will 100% be buying some. My eczema is awful at this time of year and the excessive washing has my hands all cut and bleeding.

  14. Their products are amazing and I love their initiative - just recently got the really big hand wash and cream :)
