This week, Femail tests a range of nourishing treats
Lanolips Rose Balm Intense, £9.18, 25ml, from www.lanolips. com
They say: An award- winning rich and intensive ultra pure grade lanolin based balm for very dry hands and nails. Leaves a silky protective veil on the skin for continued moisture protection.
We say: A lovely fragrance and a handy sized tube for pocket or handbag. It left a slight shine on my hands – it is not advisable to use this balm if you are intending to use a keyboard straight away.
Clarins Double Serum Complete Age Concentrate, £55, 100ml, available from www.clarins.co.uk

They say: Intensive anti-ageing treatment rich in 20 plant extracts that boosts the skin's vital functions. Skin looks firmer, wrinkles appear smoother, the complexion looks more even and regains its glow, and pores appear less visible.
We say: At first, I wasn't quite sure what a serum, rather than a regular cream would do, but it has been a really good product. I have been using it for a number of weeks and it has made my skin feel really soft and I am also convinced it has reduced the appearance of my wrinkles slightly.
Eucerin DermoCapillaire calming urea shampoo, 250ml, £10.54, from specialist Boots stores and good pharmacies
They say: Formulated with active ingredients to help reduce the scalp's moisture loss. Contains urea, which exists naturally in the skin, where it works as a humectant, holding moisture in the skin. Gentle cleansing and superior conditioning to restore volume and a healthy natural shine to hair, with added suppleness.
We say: This shampoo produced immediate relief and the lack of an overpowering chemical smell was a bonus.
Eucerin DermoCapillaire calming urea scalp treatment, 250ml, £11.99, from specialist Boots stores and good pharmacies
They say: Contains specific active ingredients to relieve the scalp from problems such as sensitivity, itchiness and dryness. Apply as a scalp mask, can be used daily.
We say: The intensive treatment had a long-lasting effect, making a noticeable difference to an itchy scalp. Combined with the Eucerin DermoCapillaire calming urea shampoo, it produced constant, as well as immediate, relief.
