Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Eventone Age Spot Hand Cream ★★★
About: hydrating hand cream designed to target the damage caused by sun exposure, which leads to premature ageing of the hands and in particular unsightly age spots. Packaged in a plastic squeeze tube with flip-top lid.
Review: I love that the Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Eventone Age Spot Hand Cream contains vitamin E to nourish my skin and sunscreen to protect my hands from getting burnt and after massaging it into my hands before bed on a nightly basis, I found by morning my skin was sufficiently hydrated and felt soft and supple to touch. Because I found the perfume too overwhelming, I personally wouldn’t buy this hand cream again, however the floral scent might appeal to those with different taste, who would be willing to use it for a longer period to achieve better results. Otherwise, for the price it’s a great treat for dry hands, providing a nourishing glove over the skin to seal in moisture and protect against future damage.
The ultra thick, white cream feels decadent and conditioning on my hands, however the white lily fragrance, which smells quite pleasant to begin with is way too strong and overbearing, to the point where it really makes me feel like washing it off. The artificial scent tends to trigger my fragrance sensitivity and often induces headaches. Despite the smell, I persisted with my trial for the duration of a month, to put it to the test and determine if it delivered a more uniform skin tone and reduced the appearance of age spots and discolouration. Whilst the cream was indeed moisturising, because it is so rich and heavy, it doesn’t absorb too well and I could still feel the tacky remnants on my hands up to an hour after the initial application. Due to this, I preferred to use the cream at night, where it wouldn’t interfere with my day to day tasks and would better penetrate my skin to address my skin concerns. Needless to say, one month on and I can’t say that I am noticing any obvious improvement in the appearance of my skin, therefore without further use, I don’t believe at this stage the product lives up to it’s claims of targeting the visible signs of prematurely aged hands.
