Today’s review is about Collistar Anti-Age Hand Treatment. I have extremely dry and flaky palms. No matter how much I take care they remain the same. Hence I wanted to try something more than a hand cream. So, let’s read how this one worked for me.
Price: €9 for 50 ml (I got mine for €4)
Hand care with a lightening effect, which protects the skin and counteracts the development of typical aging phenomena. Keratin also strengthens the nails. The intensely moisturizing formula absorbs quickly and can also be used as a revitalizing hand cure.

My Experience with Collistar Anti-Age Hand Treatment:
The hand cream actually comes in a cardboard packaging. It is in a tube packaging, which is white in colour with a dark blue cap. The cap is a screw cap which is not my favorite. I find flap lids are more convenient, especially for a hand cream.
One tends to use a hand cream while on the go and you will want to close it quickly and rub your hands. Anyway, rest of the packaging is good. Since it’s a 50 ml packaging, it’s perfect for the handbag during travels. The hand cream itself is white in colour and thick in consistency.
It spreads well and also gets absorbed quickly. The absorption is not immediate and takes around a few minutes. My hands do not feel completely dry but one can feel a creamy, thin layer of the product on palms. Since this is a treatment, I use it only during the night before going to bed. By doing this, there is enough time for the product to seep into the skin.
It is also advised to use this hand cream like a hand mask. By applying this cream like a mask, you provide the active ingredients a chance to penetrate deep into the skin and hence the results are great. I do not use it as a mask as I find the product expensive and using it overnight like a hand cream provides good noticeable results.
I have used this hand cream for a few weeks only in the night and I can tell you that the results are noticeable and impressive. My hands feel very well moisturized throughout the day and I can skip the hand cream in the morning.
The white flakes in the creases of my finger have also decreased considerably. My palm feels soft and supple. The skin feels nourished. Regarding the anti-aging effect, I do not have wrinkles but this is more of a preventive treatment.
I believe it works as an anti-aging treatment as well. There is also keratin in the product, which helps strengthen the nails. My nails are strong but have these lines on it. I have not seen any improvement there. Overall, it’s a very nice hand cream, which can be used more like a treatment during night.
Pros of Collistar Anti-Age Hand Treatment:
• Small, sturdy packaging
• Non-sticky and non-oily formula
• Can be used as a hand mask
• Noticeable results

Cons of Collistar Anti-Age Hand Treatment:
• Screw cap isn’t very convenient
IMBB Rating: 4.5/5
