For the past couple of weeks, I’ve been applying Eir Health’s CBD.KREM hand and foot cream to my hands. It’s a lemongrass-scented hand cream designed to revitalise your skin and provide long-lasting deep hydration. For me this trial couldn’t come at a better time; I’m writing this review at the beginning of February in the UK so my hands are dry and sore thanks to the cold weather.
The cream combines CBD, cannabis sativa leaf extract and lemongrass extract to produce a hydrating topical. The full list includes a range of other ingredients designed to preserve and produce the correct texture (they can be viewed on the product page of the Eir Health website). The CBD is extracted from specially grown organic hemp crops in Poland.
Eir Health state that their CBD undergoes a special process to make it absorb faster into the skin. However, they don’t explain what this process is and they don’t give any more details about the type of extract used. From the details available, my guess is that it’s a CBD isolate or similar extract.
The directions on the container don’t suggest how much you should use for each application. I found that dispensing about 2cm was the ideal amount to cover both hands. I chose to apply it twice a day, first thing in the morning and last thing at night. The 50ml container provided more than enough to last me for two weeks.

3rd Party Lab Tests
Eir Health provides third-party lab results for every batch of CBD hand cream. You can find them by scanning the QR code on the box or clicking the link on the product page. The batch number for each item is printed on a sticker on the base of its box. The batch number for mine is 2P252-07.
The lab results for the hand cream show only a cannabinoid profile that tests for 15 cannabinoids. While that’s useful, it doesn’t provide quite as much detail as Eir Health provides for their CBD oils which include a terpene profile and contaminant screening. The presence of terpenes isn’t as relevant for a topical product but I’d still like to see a screening for contaminants considering this is a product that will be absorbed into my skin.
At a glance, the certificate showed that 248.4mg CBD and no other cannabinoids (including THC) were detected. This confirms that it’s likely made with an isolate extract. While 248.4mg isn’t quite the 250mg on the label it’s close enough for me to be happy with it.
I’ve scored CBD.KREM highly for lab tests because of the detailed cannabinoid profile and the batch numbers. However, I haven’t given it top marks because the results could include more detail such as heavy metals and contaminant testing.
Herb Reviews Terminology:
Full-spectrum – A product that contains a complete range of cannabinoids including THC.
Broad-spectrum – A product that contains a complete range of cannabinoids except for THC.
Isolate – A product that only contains CBD.
Eir Health Hand Cream Ease of Use
Eir Health CBD hand cream comes in a relatively small plastic container with a cap and a pump dispenser. This makes it exceptionally easy to use and completely leakproof.
The only drawback is that it’s hard to determine exactly how much CBD you’re using per application. This is less of an issue with a topical product than it would be with an oil or capsule, but nonetheless, it’s a detail that could contribute to your ability to treat your skin correctly.
The inclusion of lemongrass extract in this cream gives it a gorgeous lemon scent that lingers on your hands for a while after. It’s a wonderfully fresh, clean smell with no hint of hemp.
CBD.KREM smoothes onto skin easily and absorbs quickly. It did leave a slightly sticky feeling for up to 30 minutes after each application but once it had fully absorbed, my hands felt smooth and clean. Most areas of my skin appeared smoother and more hydrated after the first application and continued to improve after every use. Particularly dry or calloused areas took a lot longer but after the first week of regular use, even they had noticeably improved.
I gave CBD.KREM a good score for its fast-acting hydrating effects but didn’t give it a full 10 points because some dryer areas took longer to respond.
Value for Money
A 50ml container of Eir Health CBD Hand Cream containing 250mg CBD costs £18. This works out at about 7.2p per mg of CBD. That’s significantly cheaper than similar products from Hempura (9.6p per mg) and Healthspan (11p).
Isolate products are generally more affordable, but with topical products like this, it’s also worth considering that you’re also paying for other useful ingredients such as, in this case, lemongrass extract. While I’d like to see a little more detail about the type of extract and how it’s prepared, this hand cream is beautifully scented, works well and provides great value.
Would I Buy it Again?
Yes, I would buy CBD.KREM again, particularly during the colder months. It’s affordable, easy to apply and made a significant difference to my dry hands.
Eir Health CBD Hand Cream Final Scores
Eir Health CBD.KREM Review
Eir Health CBD Hand Cream is scented with lemon grass and absorbs quickly into your skin. It leaves a slightly sticky feeling for about half an hour but after that, your hands feel smooth and hydrated. The pump dispenser makes it easy to dispense a precise amount and prevents any spills or leaks. Each batch is lab tested and you can locate the results of your product via a link on the EIr Health website. The lab results are basic with only a cannabinoid profile, but they verify the amount of CBD and confirm that the cream is THC-free.
