Julep Facial for Hands is a glycolic-acid based hand scrub that cleanses as well as exfoliates your skin leaving your hands soft and smooth.
Potent glycolic acid combined with apricot seeds provides powerful double exfoliation that leaves your hands feeling noticeably softer and looking younger after just one use. Gentle, non-sudsing natural esters whisk away dirt and excess oil while combating flakiness. Naturally scented with orange oil for a refreshing aromatherapy boost with each use.
When I used this hand scrub for the first time, I wasn’t sure if it would really be effective in cleaning my hands thoroughly because there is no foaming action. However, it does get rid of all the grime leaving my hands feeling clean and very soft. The product has tiny exfoliating beads that do not feel abrasive on skin and exfoliate gently. It has a slight citrusy fragrance that doesn’t linger on your skin after rinsing off. The only thing I would like to change about this product is get it repackaged in a bottle with pump dispenser so that it’s much easier to pour out the liquid.
The directions state using this hand scrub at least once a day and it’s also gentle enough to be used every time you wash your hands. In my opinion, unless you have very dry/rough hands that need some serious smoothing treatment, you can probably get away with using it two to four times a week and it would keep your hands touchably soft. I prefer using it at night before slathering on my hand cream to boost its effectiveness. As with the use of any glycolic-acid exfoliating product, make sure not to skip covering up your hands with a broad-spectrum SPF lotion especially when outdoors.
Formulated without parabens, sulfates, or phthalates, this double-exfoliating hand scrub is a great choice for anyone battling dry, dull skin, age spots and fine lines on hands. Just as regular exfoliation is an essential part of your anti-aging skincare regimen, taking care of your hands is equally important because the skin on your hands often gives away your age even if your face does not!
