I was kindly sent the hand care cream to review. Even though it is targeted for menopausal skin younger people can use it also and see the benefits. It is also the first product on the market which combines all 4 essential hand care needs: anti wrinkle, age spot reduction, nail strengthening and sun protection.

My overall opinion
Even though I am not the targeted age range for this product, I found that this product worked really well for me. I used to wear acrylic nails for years and over time they have done damage to my nails causing them to become weaker. After using this hand cream my hands have become softer, more moisturised and my nails feel less brittle. When applying the cream to your hands it feels very rich and when rubbed into your hands your skin feels softer instantly. This product is ideal for those of all ages as it works well on all skin types/ages etc even though it is targeted as menopausal skin care.
