Does this product really work?
*I have not been paid or sent any free product for this post*
I have used this product for two months straight. Almost exclusively. I'm on vacation in Colorado and took a big jar of it with me, leaving home most of my other products, oils, butters, etc.
The water here is hard. Very mineralized and very tough and hair and skin.
I live in AZ -- very hard on skin as it is so darn dry! However, I have found a great solution that seems to work and isn't pricey (see below).
I wanted so much to like this product and while I think it helps in the immediate (any moisture will help dry, parched skin), I cannot endorse it as a "fix" for dry, wrinkled, crepey skin.
I just can't. I have to say I've slathered it on nightly after my shower, before bed, all over my hands and my hands have never looked worse!
I'm not impressed with this product.
Here's what I mean:
Dry, crepey, wrinkled...yuck!
My hand just after applying product.
A bit more moisturized, but not really smoothed out or less crepey, do you think?
OK, so what does work?
What I've found to work best is:
1. Microdermabrasion on my hands once a week. I use the Kelley West Microderm 360
2. Slather on oils -- not cheap drugstore hand products or pricey, mail order butters (tried them all!), but just good, quality oils.
Best oils I've found are simple: Argan or Marula
Don't overpay - you can find these online or at health food stores and they work like a charm! Use them on face, body, hands and apply often after exfoliating. Exfoliating makes all the difference!
