The Best Hand Cream
Day 32: Estee Lauder's Re-Nutriv Intensive Smoothing Hand Cream
I have been an Estee Lauder fan for many years. I love everything from the makeup to the fragrances. The skin care has always been exceptional and award winning. But there is a gem in the Lauder family that you might not be aware of. This magnificent product is Estee Lauder's Re-Nutriv Intensive Smoothing Hand Cream. The results are delightfully shocking. The cream is miraculous and life changing.
The Lauder PR team generously sent a full tube of this cream in a package. I passed this cream along to my mother. My mother had survived a bout of breast cancer. The treatment and stress of it all left her skin in a terrible state. Her hands suffered the most. They looked like the hands of a scullery maid from a Dickens novel. They were beet red. They were rough. So rough that they looked and felt like sandpaper. Her nails, once her pride and joy, were short and brittle. Her hands looked painful. They were painful. I noticed that she had taken to hiding them in public. She was embarrassed by their state. Her hands showed everything she had been through.
The first time she slathered the Lauder hand cream she cooed. The cream was an instant balm. Over a course of just one day the cream did serious magic. Her skin was dramatically different. The redness dissipated. The appearance of crepiness was smoothed away. My mother was so delighted and hopeful.
After just two weeks, the improvement of the skin texture was simply outrageous. Gone were the flakes, calluses and deep cuts. They were healed and felt silky smooth. Her hands also looked dramatically younger. This was just an added benefit. The most important thing was that her hands were pain free and looked better. She was able to do simple chores without wincing. She was able to wave and shake hands. No more embarrassment.
The cream retails for $45 for 3.4 oz at your local Estee Lauder counter.
It is worth every coin.
