Another fantastic product from Hand Chemistry, Extreme Hydration Concentrate that was so kindly sent to me by Deciem. I’ve written about the brand before when I’ve tried two other products, Hylamide (click here to read) and Hand Chemistry Retin-Oil (click here to read) they are a unique company that have numerous brands under the Deciem umbrella.
This is a very special formulation, unlike anything I have tried before. Extreme Hydration Concentrate is an ultra concentrated hand cream that provides deep and long lasting hydration to your skin and helps the following problems:
- Irregular skin texture
- Provides a protective barrier
- Below surface hydration
- Instant hydration
- Retains moisture
Deciem have a very scientific approach to skin care, they state “Our ultra-concentrated hydration complex contains five hydration active technologies from marine and plant sources that provide deep and lasting hydration to the skin, offering dramatic visible textural improvements. Extreme hydration is the perfect saviour for dry skin or to use during periods of cold weather as it helps to create a barrier to protect the skin from the environment.”
This really does provide extreme hydration, it has kept my hands from chapping and getting dry which they have a tendency to do at this time of year without having to use a heavy greasy formula. It is extremely light and you don’t need a lot at all to cover your hands, I also use it around my cuticles and it is fantastic for both. On the back of the pack it says to use morning and night for 10 days to see maximum results, you won’t need 10 days to find that this works. You notice a difference immediately in terms of your hands feeling comfortable and also your skin feeling soothed.
I have been blown away by this and it will be a definite part of my hand cream collection in the future. A fabulous hard working formula, one I would definitely recommend for both home and on the go. Perfect for the office as you can apply this and start working on the computer straight away.
It smells beautiful too and comes in a huge 100ml size. What more can you ask for?!
Essential for this time of year, Extreme Hydration Concetrate is available from handchemistry.com and Boots, 100ml is £19.00.
Till next time,
