Coming Soon: Elemis Pro-Collagen Hand and Nail Cream

Not only am I totally hooked on my Elemis Energizing Skin Scrub, but I also have a love affair with hand lotions. So when I heard about the March release of the new Elemis Pro-Collagen Hand and Nail Cream ($60), I couldn't wait to get my mitts on some. Lucky for me, l didn't have to wait too long. Last week I was able to try a sample and I've been using it since so that I could report my results firsthand.

The cream was created as an antiaging product specifically formulated to moisturize, strengthen nails, and lighten the look of age spots. To be fair, I don't have any age spots yet so I haven't noticed much of a difference there, and I really haven't noticed any increase in the hardness of my fingernails. With that said, my hands do feel softer, and I really like the lavender and rose fragrance.

I've learned that a dime-sized amount is the perfect dose for smooth hands and hydrated cuticles, since it is more of a lotion than a thick cream. If you use too much, your hands will feel greasy for a good 30 minutes. I would recommend this product to those of you who are a little bit older and are looking for something to prevent dryness, crepiness, and age spots — but I don't think that anyone younger than 30 really needs to spend quite this much for a hand cream.

I use Elemis because I found it cheap on Ebay. Honestly, it does its job but I don't think its anything to write home about.. I like the Estee Lauder products much better (and they're definitely worth the price.)

i enjoy elemis products but they are so expensive. 60 bucks for a hand cream is waaaay too much.
