I’ve tried a few things here and there from Eve Lom. I grabbed the Time Retreat Hand Treatment a few months back and wasn’t sure what to expect. My hands had been looking pretty dry and uneven, not to mention the brown spots appearing on the back of my hands was bugging me. Details per Eve Lom:
Time Retreat Hand Treatment lavishes hands with a smoothing formula that reduces the appearance of lines, creases and helps corrects skin tone. Liposome Encapsulated Retinol firms whilst stimulating collagen production for a smoother, revitalized look. This weightless cream is immediately absorbed, bathing skin in rich moisture with long-lasting hydration.
NIACINAMIDE – Intensive moisturisation agent absorbs deeply, nourishing and enhancing elasticity.
LIPOSOME ENCAPSULATED RETINOL – Safe Vitamin A concentrate complex reduces existing fine lines and wrinkles while simultaneously stimulating collagen production to guard against future wrinkle formation.
ABYSSINIAN OIL – A seed extract rich in essential fatty acids, plumps and rejuvenates.
BOTANICAL EXTRACTS (Honey, Avocado, Sweet Almond, Calendula & Olive Oils, Shea Butter) – Soothing extracts calm and condition.
VITAMIN E – Powerful antioxidant defends against environmental damage.
SODIUM HYALURONATE – Potent smoothing and firming agent.
LACTIC ACID – Gently exfoliates and enhances glow.
Directions Massage a small amount into the hands, working in the knuckles. Apply to the back of the hands and sweep across from thumb to small finger. This action helps prevent the hands wrinkling.
The texture is a thicker creamy lotion. It has a very minimal scent. Nothing even worth noting. This comes packaged in a cool plastic tube with a pump. You only need a little bit. I apply a small dab to the back of my hands before bed. This is after being totally done washing my hands and face, before night hand cream. I rub it in, wait a few minutes and apply my hand cream. This is gentle, I’ve experienced no adverse side effects. No redness, dryness, flaking none of that.
The best part is it only took four treatments. Four. I applied this four nights in a row and noticed a very big difference in the texture of the skin on my hands. My skin was tighter, more even in tone, smoother, firmer, less crepiness as well. They looked younger. Sounds stupid because I’m 38 not 60, but there’s been a difference in the skin on the back of my hands from my 20s until now. This makes them look like they’re from my 20s again. It’s taken weeks of using this to reduce the brown spots on my hands but it is working on that as well. To be honest I’m happy with just the improvement in my skins texture.
It’s not cheap at $50 for a small tube, to be fair I’ve been using this almost nightly for weeks and barely feel like I’ve made a dent. It’s completely worth it and I would recommend this to anyone. Especially those in their 30s and above. It has earned a spot in my Hero Products list.
