I was at my grandma’s house when I was introduced to Clarins Hand and Nail Treatment Cream. My uncle had bought it for my grandma and asked me if I had tried it before. I hadn’t tried this hand cream before but what got my attention is when he mentioned Queen Elizabeth uses it. I use hand cream everyday so I’m always on the lookout for a great hand cream.
On the box it states to “Softens hands and protects against the drying effects of the sun, cold weather and hard water. Hydrates and revitalizes, helps minimize the look of age spots. Helps keep palms dry and conditions nails”. I wanted to find out if the cream delivered what it promises and ultimately would it be worth buying again.
What I like about this cream is that it’s effective in keeping your hands soft and protected. The ingredients of this cream are light and use mostly natural extracts and oils that are gentle on the skin. I like how soft my hands are after using it. My skin absorbs the cream almost instantly leaving a light soft feeling and a non-greasy layer. My hands are still smooth even after I have washed them a few times. The citrus fragrance of the cream is subtle and lasts for quite some time.
So far it was ticking all the boxes but I wanted to dig deeper and find out in greater depths more about the ingredients used. I asked my friend Heba who previously worked as a pharmacist and has experience mixing creams for prescriptions to tell me if she thought the cream could deliver what it promotes. She said it has shea butter and coconut oil two of her most favourite natural moisturizers as they are excellent at keeping your hands smooth and hydrated. You combine these two ingredients with myrrah, sesame oil and white mulberry root extract fills the cream with antioxidants which helps the cell regeneration process and removes dryness. It also creates a protecting layer to retain the water in your skin and helps in the removal of age spots. The cream also has Allantoin, Lecithin and Vitamin E which also promotes skin healing and cell regeneration which works to prevent and treat skin aging. Everyone wants a cream that works to prevent and treat skin aging. She also informed me sesame oil can act as a sunscreen which protects your hands from the UV light.
Heba thought Clarins Hand and Nail Treatment Cream was a winner! So much she wanted to go out and buy it.
As my Hand and Nail Treatment Cream had run out I was also in need of a new one.
As I’m a Myer one card member my personal preference is Myer, it’s $40 and worth every cent. http://www.myer.com.au/shop/mystore/au-clarins-hand-and-nail-treatment-cream-100ml-d-1029
