Will This Peel Rejuvenate Hands?
When it comes to aging, how much do you pay attention to the backs of your hands? They can totally give away your age or look old before your time. I usually apply sunscreen or leftover sunscreen from my face on the backs of my hands almost every day but I do forget sometimes.
I have not seen many products made especially for this area until now. EXUVIANCE Age Reverse Hand Rejuvenator ($65 @ neostrata.com, ulta.com) is a two-product system – the peel and the cream. I’ve been testing it out since early February so let’s check it out.
What It Is: This two-step intensive treatment restores smoother, firmer and younger looking hands. The 10% Citric Acid Peel gently exfoliates and lifts away dull rough patches, uncovering smooth skin and preparing for the rejuvenating cream treatment that follows. With potent anti-agers CitraFill®, NeoGlucosamine® and Apple Stem Cell Extract, the Hand Rejuvenator Cream helps diminish all the signs of aging on hands - crepiness, loose skin and dark spots, restoring hydration and firmer, younger looking hands.
My Take: Well as you can see from the below photos, there doesn’t seem to be much difference between the two. I swiped the Peel product with a cotton pad on the backs of my hands and then applied some of the Cream after every day for a solid 5 weeks. I feel like the skin on the back of my hands has not changed much at all. I’m surprised because of the ingredients it lists but this one is a big pass from me.
