Dove pro age Hand Cream
Advantages: moisturising, rubs in easily
Disadvantages: Quite expensive,
My hands resemble crocodiles, as I seem to wash them so often and the combination of washing them and central heating plus getting tanned in the summer and cold in the winter seems to have stripped them of all their natural oils.
I amonly 27, so I dont really need an ant-ageing handcream such as the dove pro-age, but I thought that a product for mature skin would probably be more moistursing.
I bought the hand cream in Tesco for about £2, not that cheap but a small blob does seem to go quite a long way so it should last for a while.
The cream contains several "active" ingredients to help make your skin look more even and supposedly younger. AHA (4%) which helps to get rid of dead skin cells, Glycerin (2%) which is highly moistursing and Olive Oil (1%) which also helps hydrate and smooth your skin. It also contains a sunscreen - SP5 which helps to protect your skin from the ageing effects of UV light.
I find the cream is easy to rub into my skin, although my hands are so dry that they would probably absorb anything I put on them! They feel instantly moisturised and more comfortable after I have applied the cream, and continue to feel moisturised for a good couple of hours or until I next wash my hands.
I havnt noticed my hands looking more even textured or "younger" but that may be because they arent too bad anyway, just very dry.
I would recommend the dove pro-age as a good, moisturising hand cream but Im not convinced about its anti-ageing effects.
It has a pleasant, lightly floral scent which reminds me of after-sun.
Summary: A good general use hand-cream but dont expect miracles!
