Like most women, you’ve probably been told by your mother or grandmother that one of the first places you start to see the effects of aging is on your hands. Whether fine lines or age spots, you can’t do much to hide signs of aging on your hands once it begins to set in. Since aging is something all women would prefer to stave off in any way possible, I decided to pamper myself with the Essie Ejuvenate Discovery Set, “A Revolutionary System for Younger-Looking Hands.”
The set includes 1-oz size jars of the Hydro-Therapy Hand Revitalizer, Microdermabrasion Hand Refiner, Advanced Radiance Hand Treatment and the Intensive Hand Recovery Cream.
The Hydro-Therapy Hand Revitalizer is a powder which you mix with warm water and soak your hands in to gently cleanse and soften the cuticles. After soaking and exfoliating with the Microdermabrasion Hand Refiner, the next step is to apply the Advanced Radiance Hand Treatment. According to Essie, this treatment:
♦ Helps to reduce the appearance of age spots on the hands without irritation
♦ Stimulating Caffeine firms and tightens the skin
♦ Arbutin and Licorice Root Extract help to gently brighten hyperpigmentation and discoloration
The last step in the system is to apply the Intensive Recovery Hand Cream. Here is what Essie has to say about the benefits of this cream:
♦ Luxurious cream helps repair and moisturize dry, aging hands and cuticles
♦ Rice Extract helps to promote cellular longevity and stimulate Sirtuin activity
♦ Fast absorbing cream leaves skin smooth, soft and younger-looking
Fortunately, I don’t have age spots. Yet. And hopefully I wont
ever have them have them for a long, long time. So, I wouldn’t know if Advanced Radiance Hand Treatment lives up to its claim to reduce the appearance of age spots.
The Intensive Recovery Hand Cream is amazing, I’ve used it with the system, and once a day for about a week and my hands look great and feel so soft and smooth. (So smooth that El-hubs even noticed!)
The other immediate benefit I’ve experienced from using this system is that my cuticles look better longer after a manicure. Whether looking to pamper yourself a bit more during your next manicure, or hoping to cling to your youth a bit longer, I’d definitely recommend giving the Essie Ejuvenate Discovery Set a try.
The Essie Ejuvenate system is available for purchase or offered as a service in salons and spas, and you can also find it online (here).
