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.
