Is this the best anti-aging hand cream? Review of Hand Chemistry by The Abnormal Beauty Company (DECIEM)

OMG. OMG. OMG. I didn’t even know I needed an anti-aging hand cream until I walked into the Deciem store in Yorkville. Here’s the deal – I am in my early 30s, my hands are dry as hell, they aren’t plump and soft like they used to be, and well, honestly, they are showing signs of aging (I am in my early 30s). I went in to purchase stuff for my face, I mean who cares about anti-aging for the hands – I honestly didn’t even know anti-aging products for your hands existed. The very helpful sales associate at the store walked me through a number of Deciem’s product lines (there are a lot of them and you actually need someone to help you, otherwise you will be utterly confused). I came across the Hand Chemistry hand cream and asked him what the deal was. He told me that this was one of their best selling products, and it was an anti-aging cream for the hands. Of course I was interested! He then described how you can tell someone’s age from looking at their hands, even if their face looks young – I don’t want to be that someone! I want young looking hands!

So this is what Hand Chemistry claims to do – it is supposed to target 8 signs of hand aging (I didn’t know there were 8 signs of hand aging BTW). It improves brightness, elasticity, firmness, smoothness, density, evenness, hydration and texture – Woah! Also, you can expect visible results in 11 days!

Of course I ended up purchasing Hand Chemistry, and a bunch of other products (which I will be reviewing later). I have been using Hand Chemistry for 3 days now, and honestly, my hands look amazing. My sisters commented on how “nice” and “pretty” my hands look. To put this into perspective, I NEVER get compliments on my hands. I haven’t had a manicure, and I didn’t even have nail polish on. Also, we are in the dead of winter, which isn’t exactly pretty hand season. My hands look a lot smoother and they definitely feel more hydrated. They look brighter too! I can’t comment on firmness, density or elasticity, but I am going to keep using to see what happens at the 11 day mark!

So far I am super impressed, and highly recommend the Hand Chemistry hand cream. Also, this stuff smells amazing!! Did I forget to mention that it only costs $20?

Wishing you all gorgeous hands!

Is this the best sunscreen for your face? Clinique Super City Block SPF 40 Review

Sunscreen. We all know this is the most essential product to wear on your face to prevent aging, yet sometimes we forget. Or, we don’t like the extra step, or we just can’t seem to find that perfect sunscreen. You know something that doesn’t look like you have a white coating on your face, something that you can actually wear under your makeup without getting too oily. I think I found that sunscreen btw… Continue reading “Is this the best sunscreen for your face? Clinique Super City Block SPF 40 Review”

Taking Care of your Skin in your 30’s and what I am learning so far…

I could say a lot about entering my 30s. I started to ponder the meaning of life, wonder about my career, think about when I was going to have a baby and the list goes on …

I also started thinking about aging. I dunno, it’s like I woke up one day, looked in the mirror and thought to myself, wow, my skin looks awful! This is coming from someone with super clear skin, not a pimple in sight, and no visible pores. Wait, what are those squiggly little things under my eyes? Fine lines. Holy crap! Yup that is what happens when you hit the 30s. You start noticing your enlarged pores, and your hair falling and the lines showing. But, after countless reading on anti-aging products, there is still hope for your skin! In fact, good thing you noticed, now is the time to take some preventative and corrective action.  Continue reading “Taking Care of your Skin in your 30’s and what I am learning so far…”
