Tried & Tested – Hand Creams, Cupcake Frostings & Dashcams

This month our testing panel put intensive hand creams, ready-made frostings and dashcams through their paces to find the best value product for your needs

Intensive hand creams

Hands bear the brunt of our day-to-day lives more than any other part of our bodies. Exposed to the elements, they can easily become dry, cracked or sore. With the cold weather approaching, they may need extra protection to keep them in shape. Our testers from all walks of life – nurses, gardeners, chefs and eczema sufferers – tried out some of the most intensive hand nourishers around. See how they fared here.

Cupcake frostings

Whether young or old, a cupcake isn’t a cupcake unless it has frosting. And at this time of year when cakes are in demand for school fayres, fundraisers and treats for kids, it makes sense to have a ready-made version on standby for the ‘Mum, I need to take cakes into school tomorrow’ late-night statement. Our tests discovered which are worth spending money on here.

Dash cams

Dash cams are becoming more and more popular with drivers as they can save a lot of time, stress and money if video footage can be produced as evidence following an accident. Some of the larger insurance companies even offer a discount if a good quality dash cam (offering clear footage) is fitted to the vehicle. There are lots of models available and a basic one starts at £50. We put four popular brands through our rigorous testing for ease of use and value for money.
