Julep Glow On Age Defying Hand Brightener
I received the Julep Glow On Age Defying Hand Brightener in the January Julep Maven box that I was able to get on promotion for only a penny. I was really disappointed to see this hand lotion as the extra goodie in the boxes, since I'm only in my 20's and not showing any signs of ageing in my hands. But I figured I'd try it out and review it solely as a hand lotion.
I have been using this lotion on my hands after every hand wash (which is a lot with two kids in diapers) as well as every night before I go to sleep. I haven't noticed any change in the condition of my skin, I still have dry knuckles, dry cuticles (I stopped using my cuticle oil while testing this product) and most of all I haven't seen any improvement in the "age" or "brightness" of my hands. It's a decent hand lotion, it's moderately moisturizing, but the hydration doesn't last as long as some other hand lotions I have used in the past. It probably lasts a good 3hrs until I feel the need to apply more. The scent is mild, not at all perfume-ey. The consistency is pretty thin, almost like a facial lotion, significantly thinner than a body lotion.
Overall, I wouldn't really recommend this hand lotion, especially since it costs $32.00. I will use it up as a night time hand lotion, but I definitely won't be repurchasing it.
