Speed Review: Elemis Pro-Radiance Hand and Nail Cream
When most people think of the Elemis "Pro" ranges, the bestselling Pro Collagen line is probably the first to spring to mind but there's also the Pro Radiance collection, from which I've previously reviewed the Cream Cleanser. Following on from that, today's review is of the Elemis Pro-Radiance Hand and Nail Cream.
On first impressions, Elemis Pro-Radiance Hand and Nail Cream looks luxurious thanks to the minimalist design of the tube and reflective silver cap, presented in a royal blue box. The tube is a generously sized 100ml and what's more, it's functional.
The cream has a rich texture without being greasy. It felt smooth and velvety so I was surprised to note that it's a silicone-free formula. The cream was easily absorbed and I was very impressed that there was absolutely no greasy residue. A little goes a long way so I expect that the tube will last for a long time yet equally, I felt as though I needed to reapply fairly regularly throughout the day.
The strong white florals fragrance won't be to everyone's liking and whilst it lingers, it does settle down following application. It smells luxurious and expensive, not synthetic. Personally, I neither loved nor hated the scent.
My hands were left feeling smooth and nourished but at a rather pricey £25 for 100ml, I'm not sure that I could justify a repurchase purely because there are other, more affordable hand creams which I prefer.
