Nivea Age-Defying Q10 Hand Cream – With SPF!

Hi there! Since summer has basically arrived, I thought I should try and review a hand cream with SPF!

So today’s post is about Nivea’s Age Defying Q10 Hand Cream. This hand cream is aimed at people who want an anti-wrinkle hand cream that takes care of dry hands, protects hands from sun damage and helps prevent sun spots.

So how’s this hand cream? I think it’s great! It’s quite rich, so it’s not the formula you’d expect from a summer hand cream. But it’s not sticky and it’s absorbed quickly.

I don’t think that this hand cream made my hands appear younger. However, I’ve always taken care of my hands (I think that my hands look 15 years younger than they are), so I wouldn’t expect a new product to do wonders anyway.

I also don’t have any sun spots, but I am satisfied that this hand cream protects my skin from sun damage. My hands look as pale as they did in March, so I trust the SPF in this hand cream.

Oh, one more thing… this hand cream smells lovely. I’d describe the fragrance as happy and yellow – which is perfect for summer!

Nivea’s Age-Defying Q10 Hand Cream (which I would recommend to everyone) is available as 75ml for £4. Nivea used to do 100ml tubes (like the ones I have) for about the same price. However, Nivea updated (= shrunk) the packaging of this hand cream.

If you wonder if the 100ml tubes are still around… yes, they are! Just a few weeks ago I found this hand cream at Poundland (or Poundworld?). And I bought 5 tubes for £1 each. Fantastic value!

Boots No 7 Protect & Perfect Intense Day Hand Cream

No7 Hand creamHi there! Today’s post is about Boots No 7 Protect & Perfect Intense Day Hand Cream.

Let me be honest, I don’t use hand creams very often. Most of the time I just use body lotion or body butter – whatever I can find. However, I’m glad that I tried this product.

Boots’ No 7 hand cream is quite a gem. It contains SPF 15 which helps protect my hands from the sun so I won’t be getting any more sun spots on my hands.

I really love the thick formula because it provides lots of moisture without being greasy. I’ve been using this hand cream once a day for just over a week now and I’m very happy with how soft my hands are.

I also think that my hands look younger. Unfortunately I didn’t take pictures last week so I can’t really compare, but I swear my hands look younger.

Boots No 7 Protect & Perfect Intense Day Hand Cream is quite expensive (£10.50 for a 75ml tube), but looking at the almost instant results, I think it’s definitely worth the money.

I would recommend this hand cream and I can certainly see myself buying it on a regular basis. Well done, Boots!
