|D-Panthenol Vitamin B5 Pure Active A32 (£11.60 for 15ml) and Hand Repair Care B62 (£6.80 for 50ml)|
Over the last couple of months, I have been trying out some new skincare, specifically targeted for the hands. The skin on my hands is dry at the best of times but becomes chapped, split and sore in the winter months and becomes unbearable. My main way to ease this is by keeping my hands moisturised at all times, particularly before and after going out into the cold. The frosty weather and central heating play havoc with the skin on my hands at this time of year.
A couple of products I’ve been trying are from Etat Pur which is a brand I’d previously not tried before I was asked if I’d like to review them. These were Biomimetic Skincare B62 and Pure Active A32.
Biomimetic Skincare B62
The Biomimetic Skincare B62 is a hand repair care product in the form of a super soft cream that moisturises, nourishes and protects dry or damaged hands. It soothes and repairs the skin leaving it feeling soft and comfortable.
The texture of the cream encompasses a comforting feeling by being rich and deeply nourishing. It soaks into the skin really quickly which is perfect for when I’m at my desk at work and leaves a velvety finish. One of the things that I love the most about this cream is that it has a non-sticky finish in that it doesn’t leave a greasy coating on the hands for ages after use which is what I hate about other hand products I’ve tried so I was pleased to see that this hand cream isn’t like that. I do find that after I have applied it, it is slightly tacky for the first minute or so before it fully sinks in and then my hands feel totally nourished and velvety soft.
For those days where my skin is ridiculously dry then I opt for the D-Panthenol Vitamin B5, Pure Active A32
D-Panthenol Vitamin B5, Pure Active A32
This product can be used not only on the hands but on other areas of the body that are very dry, like the face, or rough like elbows. What initially attracted me to D-Panthenol was that I’d heard it is brilliant for those who suffer from psoriasis which I do. Lately my psoriasis has been flaring up on my elbows and been particularly irritating, dry and flaky which catches on my knitwear.
I’ve been applying this product as more of a treatment for the last month and whilst it hasn’t taken away my psoriasis, as it is stress related, it has certainly soothed my skin and softened the dry flaky areas making them much less painful. I started by applying it to my elbows morning and night for two weeks and then I saw the most improvement in the skin in this area so I dropped down to using it once a day in the morning thereafter and this has helped to maintain the softness of the skin on my elbows.
The cute little bottle dispenses just the right amount of product by pressing the bottom of the bottle, making it really easy to use and mess free. It is almost like an oil in texture that sinks into the skin immediately leaving it feeling incredibly soft and supple without leaving a greasy residue. I’d definitely repurchase this!
Etat Pur products are available direct from their website which I’d recommend checking out, particularly for their gift sets which would make great Christmas gifts. The D-Panthenol Vitamin B5 Pure Active A32 is priced at £11.60 for 15ml which may seem pricey but a little goes a very long way and the Hand Repair Care B62 is £6.80 for 50ml.
