Review: Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Visibly Renew Elasti-Boost Hand Cream SPF 20

What is it?
A handcream with SPF.

Who is it for?
Everyone, especially someone with normal or dry skins for hands.This is a handcream with SPF, which is not often seen on the market. I know that lots of people apply handcream quite frequently. But you should really apply handcream with SPF during daytime. Our hand is exposed to a lot of sun exposure. However, we almost never apply sunscreen on them. But, we should!

Causes of allergy or concern?
The product does contain fragrance.

What I like about it?
The products contains both UVA and UVB sunscreen actives ingredients, such as Titanium Dioxide (UVA and UVB), butyl methoxydibenzoylmethane (UVA)

What I don’t like about it?
My hands usually don’t feel dry. After applying this product, I do not feel an immediate absorption. So it seems a bit greasy for me. However, after about 20 min, the greasy feeling goes away.

What does the product claim?
This innovative daily hand cream not only provides intense hydration but also helps restore skin’s suppleness and prevent the appearance of brown spots. It combines Norwegian Formula moisture with active minerals, which help boost skin’s own collagen production*. For visibly smoother and more supple skin. With a fast-absorbing texture that leaves a delicately scented and soft after-feel.
* in-vitro results.

Does the product live up to its claim?
The claim is based on in-vitro test, which means test tube experiments. So the product is not tested on human subjects. The validity of such test is oftentimes dubious. I think the claim is a bit over the top. How can your skin on the hand get more supple? Nevertheless, The UVA and UVB protection in the handcream can indeed help in the long run to prevent brown spots.

Would I buy it again?
I think so, just until I find a better handcream which doesn’t leave my hand feel greasy.

 

Price
Depends on where you buy the product. On boots.co.uk, the price is 5.49 pounds for 75ml.

Where to buy?
Neutrogena does not carry the same line everywhere. In UK and USA, you can see where the product is sold on their website. In Europe, you can make the purchase on boots.co.uk and they ship to mainland Europe.

If in your country, this specific handcream with SPF is not available, grab a handcream with SPF nevertheless. It will HELP you in the long run.
