Hello lovely ladies,
Keeping up with my sunscreen momentum, I have another sunscreen for you, but this one is for hands. After all the Bath and Body Works hand cream reviews, you know I am obsessed with hand creams. Can’t help it, I just want my hands to look good which otherwise look very old and wrinkly and 10 year older than they actually are. Most of it is due to hereditary and some of it is obviously due to my negligence. We always slather a lot of sunscreen on our face, but most of the times forget our hands. So Supergoop! has come up with a hand cream with SPF and yes, not just teeny-tiny SPF value to make us happy but with broad spectrum PA+++ SPF 40. Let us move onto the review.
Forever Young Hand Cream SPF 40 defends against the signs of UV-induced aging with an innovative blend of antioxidants and super broad spectrum protection. Formulated with omega-7 fatty acid-rich sea buckthorn fruit, shown to help lighten dark spots, and skin nourishing meadowfoam seed and argan oils, this moisturizing age-defier improves skin’s elasticity and texture while safeguarding skin from future photo damage.
What Makes This Goop Super:
- Sea buckthorn fruit, rich in omega-7 fatty acids, reduces inflammation, aging, boosts skin’s natural ability to produce collagen and reduces hyperpigmentation.
- Potent plant antioxidants boost thickness and density of skin while improving elasticity and smoothnes
- Meadow foam and argan oil nourish and moisturize skin without being too heavy or greasy.
USD 12 for 1 oz/30 ml; USD 34 for 10 oz/300 ml.
My Experience with Supergoop! Forever Young Hand Cream Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 40 with Sea Buckthorn:
Our hands are first part of our body to show signs of aging. With all the housework and handwork they do, they do need proper TLC and protection. I am guilty as charged of hurrying out of house without applying sunscreen on my hands. Though I make it a point to use hand cream, I always forget sunscreen. When I heard about this hand cream, I really wanted to try it out and with so many good reviews about it, I just could not hold myself back.
I wanted to try out the smaller version, but since it was out of stock, I bought the bigger one!!! (No patience to wait for the stock to be replenished 😛 )
The hand cream comes in a huge 300 ml bottle which is very convenient with the pump dispenser. The pump could be locked by turning clockwise, but the smaller packing is there for taking along while traveling.
The hand cream is white in color and pretty thick and rich. However, it does get absorbed easily and does not leave any greasy marks on the gadgets, which is a plus. I don’t have to wait to check my phone till the hand cream gets absorbed. No whitish cast or oiliness on your hands and leaves your hands soft. However, I do apply a richer cream at night since I have super-duper dry hands. But sometimes, I have applied this only at night too. 😛
It has a little herbal fragrance (I somehow smell cloves here :P), but it is not strong or bothersome. In fact you can only smell it if you take a closer sniff.
I have been using it just for a couple of days, but I am already a fan. It has definitely made a huge difference in the appearance of my hands, in a good way. 😀 My hands does look a lot better.
The sunscreen does work and I have not noticed any tanning on my hands after I started using this. I do feel that price is a little on the steep side as $12 for 1 oz for is pretty expensive. But if you buy the bigger size, you get 10 times the quantity in less than 3 times the price.
