4 oz (120 ml)
LATHER AHA Hand Creme with Evening Primrose is a rich hand treatment with alpha hydroxy acids and is designed to encourage cell renewal and help to minimize the appearance of wrinkles and age spots.
Light, non-lingering citrus scent.
Apply a small amount to hands and massage in. Use morning and evening to smooth out rough, dehydrated hands. Try it on your body for all over softness, or as a treatment for very dry hands, generously coat hands in creme and wear cotton gloves overnight. Suitable for all skin types, especially dry and aging skin.
TIA Review by Imelda:
The very rich cream came in a simple white and periwinkle blue plastic jar with a screw-on lid. The no-frills packaging looks close to clinical and seems like something that came from a dermatologist's office. Because this cream is very rich and emollient, just a little amount applied and massaged on the hands really goes a long way. Initially, it feels sticky, but the greasy feeling dissipates once the cream is fully absorbed into the skin, which immediately begins to appear moisturized.
LATHER AHA Hand Creme with Evening Primrose contains oils of safflower, rose hip, lemon, and grapefruit. Aside from these oils, there are extracts of aloe, arnica, grapeseed, and lime. Though these are ingredients I can be comfortable with, there are some that the "purists" among us would probably frown upon such as: stearyl alcohol, ceteareth 20, ethylhexyl palmitate, Peg-100 stearate (all of which were among the first 10 in the list), cyclomethicone, and phenoxyethanol. These ingredients were found by Cosmetic Ingredient Review assessments as having from low to moderate hazard concerns/ratings on EWG's Skin Deep website.
I continued with the application of LATHER's hand treatment cream as instructed. As I mentioned earlier, upon applying, massaging and absorption of the cream, my hands felt immediately supple and silky. After four weeks of use, applied at least twice a day (morning and evening), my hands remain soft and smooth to the touch. There are no sun spots on my hands just yet, thanks to sunscreen lotions, so I can't speak of this cream's efficacy for that particular concern. However, there was really no visible or remarkable change that I was hoping to see in terms of diminished fine lines. These results might just be enough to expect for now, especially for hands of a 50+ active working woman. There's still a lot of the cream left in the 4-oz jar to maybe last another month, so I would say there is good value in this jar of AHA treatment cream for the above results that I achieved.
