Do You Take Care Of Your Hands

The other day I was walking through Debenhams and having a browse when a lady handed me a sample of Elemis Pro Radiance Hand and Nail Cream, now I have to be honest, I don't take care of my hands and it isn't something I have thought about much but I thought I will give the sample a go.....

(Again please excuse the pictures taken from my Blackberry my camera USB cable is still hiding from me)

I have never used Elemis before but have heard good things about the brand. The sample was a 3ml sachet.....

My first thoughts before trying it was that the sample was tiny and I would get 1, maybe 2 uses out of it, I used around half the sachet for an application and this was FAR too much I could have used a pea sized amount and that would have been plenty.....

I used all of the 3ml sachet over a few days and have to say I did notice my hands to be alot softer and also my nails and cuticles looked healthier.

"Hands are continually exposed to the elements and are one of the first areas to reveal your age. This super soft hand cream absorbs quickly to instantly rejuvenate hands and condition cuticles. Fragranced with exquisite white flowers, this luxurious blend of milk protein, avellana seed oil, omega 7, camellia, virgin plum and macadamia forms a silky barrier that locks in moisture."

Everything Elemis claims is true, it soaks in beautifully and left my skin feeling velvety, the smell is lovely and fresh and like I have said above it has made my skin softer in the few days I used it. The price varies depending on where you buy it from but the cheapest I could find it was from Debenhams for £20.00 for 100ml, I originally thought that was very steep but I had a 3ml sample that lasted me a few days so 100ml would last forever!!

I may have to invest in this for younger, beautiful and softer hands.

Do you take care of your hands?



  1. Sounds great, I'd love to try it :) x

  2. That sounds like really good stuff. I'm crazy about looking after my hands. Where I work in a supermarket my hands get ripped to pieces by mountains of cardboard boxes, oven mitts and hand washing every 10 minutes so I'm constantly plastering them in creams. My favourite for my nails and cuticles is No7 nail and cuticle cream. You can instantly see the good it does and it keeps my nails and cuticles extra strong all day. Soap and Glory Hand Food is another one I rave about :) xx

  3. This looks lovely, I can't get enough of hand cream! xxx

  4. I love this hand cream (and all hand creams - have a slight addiction!) x
