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 @, 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.

Get Glycolic with NeoStrata

NeoStrata-Foaming-Glycolic-Wash I’ve addressed the benefit of glycolic acid on this site before and believe in using them regularly on the skin to reap the long-term benefits of it. You can get it in many forms and NEOSTRATA has one in a face cleanser. Their Foaming Glycolic Wash ($32/3.4oz @ uses 18% strength, is pH balanced and also contains Lactobionic acid, which helps with wrinkles.

What kind of cleanser are you using these days?

Exuviance Heel Repair Works the Feet

Exuviance-Heel-Repair No matter what lotion or balm I use on my feel, my soles seem no better by the end of the day and there  I am, back at square one. What the dilly? And I’ve been using products that are made especially for feet but just don’t think most are truly made to be able to penetrate the tough skin. I don’t get it. I was about to give up when I was sent over EXUVIANCE new Heel Repair ($38/3.4oz @, which comes from the NeoStrata brand.

I had been using this one and like it ok but the clove scent started bothering me so I tossed it. What I initially liked, I started to dislike! Has that ever happened to you? Anyway, this Heel Repair contains Alpha and Polyhydroxy Acids (AHAs and PHAs), that really penetrate the skin to repair trouble spots like the heel and the Pro-Vitamin E and skin conditioning oils to sooth the skin. Don’t you need something to get your feet in sandal shape? Big recommendation.

Exuviance SunRise Bionic Tonic

Exuviance-SkinRise-Bionic-Tonic I come across a lot of products made for night time but not often one for mornings. EXUVIANCE SunRise Bionic Tonic ($40/36 pads @ under the NeoStrata umbrella contains a high level of polyhydroxy acids, which is molecularly larger than alpha-hydroxy acids and proven beneficial for those who are sensitive to AHAs. Each single-use pad really perks skin up using the above PHAs and cucumber, eucalyptus, vitamins A, C and E and green tea. So say good morning to your latest cup o’ joe for the face!

Exuviance Sheer Refining Fluid Controls Oil

Exuviance-Sheer-Refining-Fluid-2 A good friend of mine has super oily skin and is always looking for a product to control it throughout the day so I gave her EXUVIANCE’s Sheer Refining Fluid SPF 15 ($32/1.75oz @ to try out. I didn’t even have to bug her for her feedback as she came back to me after about 1 week of using it to give praise! Love that!

This contains the ingredient Phytotal, which is a botanical blend that not only controls the oil production throughout the day but claims to reduce excess oil over time. Hmmmm. I told her to get back to me on that one. It also contains a NeoGlucosamine, which works on discolorations on the skin and improves the tone and texture.
