Confession: My name is Carrie and I neglect my hands. I know, I know, I shouldn’t, as they are definitely showing signs of ageing, but I can’t seem to get myself into a hand care routine. So, when I was offered the chance to try this natural, Botanicals Beautiful Hands Anti-Ageing Serum*, I decided this would be a good opportunity for me to rectify the situation (I’m also a bit of a sucker for anything ‘anti-ageing‘)!I have to confess that, although I had good intentions, I used this once or twice and then forgot about it (sorry Botanicals). I knew I had to give this more of a chance as my hands were crying out for help. I decided to give myself a challenge – to use this religiously, every night, until I had used the whole bottle.
I kept this the serum by my bed and started off feeling the need to use a fair amount, applying the serum directly to the back of my hands, finding that the more I used it, the less I needed. In the end, I was only using a few drops each night.
I found the slightly ‘crepey’ skin on the back of my hands improved massively. I know this sounds cliche, but my hands feel so much softer and the skin is even looking a little tighter. I also suffer from dry cuticles and using this around my nail bed has improved this too.
I probably should have been using a hand cream too (baby steps). Botanicals are offering a FREE Anti-Ageing Hand Serum with every purchase of their 50g Hand Balm (£15.95 for both products) – offer ends today (6th September) – I’ve already ordered mine!
What Botanicals say: “Exposure to sunlight, detergents and pollutants means our hands are usually the first to show the signs of ageing. Botanicals intensive anti-ageing serum is high in GLA (Gamma Linolenic Acid), with free radical fighting anti-oxidents that help regenerate skin tissue.
A blend of cold-pressed organic oils provides powerful anti-ageing skin care benefits which work at a cellular level to rejuvenate the skin and help improve skin tone and flexibility.
The astringent properties of frankincense and sweet fennel can help improve pigmentation, reduce micro-wrinkles, and generally tone and tighten the skin.”
Botanicals never fail to impress me with their products. It’s a brand I would highly recommend trying – I don’t think you will be disappointed!
