Advantages Leaves hands feeling soft and smooth.
Disadvantages Slightly more expensive than the average hand cream!
Whilst living at home, many moons ago, my Mum used to always buy Clarins or Clinique products for me and my sister, the brother didn't get a look in, not that he wanted beauty products..........in those days the 'new man' didn't exist and male pampering was very much frowned upon, how times have changed!However once the mortgage, bills etc reared their ugly heads, Clarins products became a luxury and I now rely upon birthdays and Christmas to receive them.
And lo and behold on my birthday in January, a depressing month to have a b.day and turning 36 to boot, I received this product from a friend of mine, with a hint that I would need it as it 'minimizes age spots!' At least she's honest!!~ Packaging ~
This comes in a white box, with red writing on it. Inside there is a tube of the cream, 100ml in this case. This is also white with red writing on it. It stands on it's lid which is screw top.~ What does it promise / What does the pamphlet say? ~
Aside from not realising that many of those ingredients actually existed, I was horrified to read that age spots usually appear after 35 - 40. Being 36 with no age spots but the facial wrinkles appropriate for a 50 year old, I am so glad that I am yet to suffer age spots, that would just finish me off!!The cream is easily squeezed from the tube and what I liked about it was the fact that the cream didn't keep coming out of the small nozzle, which so often is the case and leads to messiness and waste.
The cream is white and has just the right consistency, neither runny nor too thick.It has an absolutely lovely smell, very fresh, tangy and clean, but not a medicinal smell, almost like a very good perfume!
It certainly leaves my hands feeling very soft and moisturised and what I like about it is the lack of stickiness after applying it. So many hand creams I have used, leave a lot of grease residue which means that you can't hold anything for 10 minutes after application for fear of it slipping out of your hands!

|Value for money|
|How does it affect your skin?||It moisturises|
