First Impressions | Hand Chemistry Intense Youth Complex Hand Cream


I'll try anything when it comes to beauty and I feel like I've almost tried it all! So when the lovely staff at Hand Chemistry approached me to try their Intense Youth Complex Hand Cream, I was very intrigued. See, this is an anti-aging hand cream said to have to super hydrating abilities, however, I'm still in my 20s! Despite that, I'm currently loving this stuff.

I remember opening the package from Hand Chemistry and discovering that the hand cream bottle was huge! An entire 100ml of hand cream in sleek white and bright pink packaging - subtle and lovely. Sealed with a metal sticker, of course the next thing I had to do was open it and discover the scent: a refreshingly light fruity-candy fragrance.  The cream itself is very hydrating. It's medium texture in terms of thickness, it's not a cream that you can only apply a night and you can definitely carry it around and apply it through the day. That being said, it does sink right into the skin and it feels instantly moisturizing. As an added bonus, your hands smell amazing!

Now for the anti-aging part. Since I don't have wrinkles on my hands quite yet, I can't really attest to this part. However, there seems to be a lot of cosmetic testing done using this product and it reduces the look of feel in about 11 days or so. The product is described as targeting 8 signs of ageing: firmness, density, brightness, smoothness, elasticity, evenness, texture and hydration. The use of the ingredient Biological GHK is said to have shown higher amount of collagen in the skin, and the higher the amount of collagen in the skin the less wrinkles you have.

Apparently women in the UK loved this hand cream so much, that when it first came out it sold out in stores. Moreover, it has increased amount of anti-ageing ingredients and women have even used it on their faces. Admittedly, this product evolved from an actual face lotion - so they weren't too far off! Keep this gem in your purse for on-the-go hand and face fix-ups!

It's being sold at Shoppers Drug Mart in Canada at $19.99 CAD and at Boots in the UK.

Have you heard of this new product? Would you give it a try?

    1. Apparently it's a big hit in the UK and one of my top ones thus far alongside the L'Occitane hand creams. I'm confident that it will be a hit here in North America too.
      You won't be disappointed!
