Review- Elemis pro-collagen hand and nail cream

Product: Elemis pro-collagen hand and nail cream

Price: £29 for 100ml

What they say: Indulge yourself daily with this intensely hydrating anti-aging hand and nail cream formulated with powerful anti-oxidants to protect against external factors which dry the hands and cuticles.

This anti-aging hand and nail cream is designed to:
  • Target age spots and sun damage
  • Reduce skin crepiness
  • Strengthen and condition cuticles and nails
  • Leave hands beautifully smooth and youthful looking
The silky texture leaves hands with an exceptionally soft and non-greasy after-feel.

Skin type: All, mature, Normal/Dry

What I think: I got this travel sized one from a magazine but I have to say I'm not a fan of this hand cream. I would describe the consistency as a lotion more than a cream which doesn't feel moisturizing enough. It is really light and therefore easily absorbed with no greasy after feel, but afterwards my hands don't feel moisturized. Because its such a light lotion I end up using more of this than other hand creams. Having said that my cuticles do look less dry when I apply this hand cream. Also as it claims to be anti-aging I would expect it to at least offer SPF protection which it doesn't. Obviously I can't comment on the anti-aging aspect of the hand cream but I would expect it to be a lot richer if its anti-aging.

Because the hand cream is so quickly absorbed and it's travel sized it is useful to put into my handbag to moisturize during the day but overall a big disappointment, especially considering how much a full sized one would have cost.

Rating: 3/10

Would I repurchase: No, as its very expensive and is less moisturizing than some of the cheaper handcreams I've tried.
