This review is of the final product in the This Works Perfect Skin gift set which is a package of three This Works products that can be bought from Boots for £22. The Perfect Hands lotion is a hydrating hand cream with Rose, Mimosa and Musk. The product I am reviewing is just the hand lotion and not the other items shown in the above picture.
The brand This Works uses a variety of natural ingredients in its products and claims to deliver Modern Natural Beauty." It is free from sulphates, colours and parabens, and is not tested on animals. It has also won a number of awards and can be purchased from various retailers including many larger Boots stores.
The product comes in a 50 ml white plastic tube, which has a simple and clean design with the This Works logo on it and pink writing. The hand cream is easily squeezed out of the tube and there is an attached flip lid, which makes it easy to open and close.
The consistency of the hand cream is fairly thick but I have found that sometimes a bit too much can come out of the tube which is annoying and a waste of product.
The hand cream smells gorgeous of essential oils and is light and gentle and easily absorbed into my hands without being greasy. To use you massage it into both hands and nails regularly. I use it a few times a day and my hands always feel soft and moisturised afterwards. I also like using it at night before bed as the essential oils are quite soothing and make me feel sleepy.
The hand cream is also meant to help reduce the appearance of dark spots on you hands, but as I don't have any I can't really comment on the effectiveness of this.
I would definitely recommend this hand cream as it is lovely to use and leaves hands feeling soft and smelling lovely. However it is very expensive, and unlike the other This Works products probably not specialist enough for me to warrant the price and buy it again unless it is part of a set. I am pleased that I have been able to try it though.
