Today I have for you a review of a brand new product from FOM London that launched only last week.
As a natural beauty fan with an obsession for hand products I was completely over to moon to be one of the very first people to try the Age Defying Hand Serum* before it went on sale and having heard good things about FOM London skincare I couldn’t wait to preview this new addition to their natural skincare line.
Our hands are constantly under stress. Exposure to the elements, such as intense summer sun and drying winter winds, frequent hand-washing, regular contact with cleaning chemicals… All of this takes its toll and if we’re not careful leaves us with hands that give our age away. It is no wonder then that hands require extra care, and that’s where FOM’s new Age Defying Hand Serum steps in; helping to balance, maintain and seal in moisture.
The surprisingly light emulsion is packed with a high concentration of botanical extracts, Hyaluronic Acid, Marula fruit and powerful Antioxidants to help protect the skin from free radicals and deliver moisture to dry skin. Licorice extract also lightens age spots. Applying one pump to the back of my hands and rubbing them together first before moisturising the rest of my hands (the backs of your hands require the moisture most so if you apply this way you don’t waste the serum on your palms) the serum sank in readily without leaving any greasiness. My crepey hands (an unfortunate trait inherited from my mum’s side of the family) immediately looked smooth and the skin plump and hydrated.
Perfumed with 100% pure essential oil the scent of the hand serum is divine and really makes for an indulgent feeling hand treatment. For this reason I especially love applying the serum at night, when I can really allow time to massage it in to promote relaxation and a good night’s sleep.
The serum is packaged in a heavyweight glass bottle with a pump applicator which shouts quality. This is definitely one for keeping on your dressing table for applying before leaving the house or last thing at night rather than throwing in your handbag.
Priced at £22 for 50ml this hand serum may not be the cheapest hand product available but in my opinion it is worth every penny. The efficacy of the serum blew me away, with the crepey skin of my hands immediately softening and visibly looking smoother. Additionally, with its high concentrates of active ingredients you require only a small amount of serum so the product will last quite a while.
Another new launch is the wonderful sounding Age Defying Hand Scrub (£12.50) with Shea and Avocado Butter and Grape Seed Lipids, which makes the perfect partner to the Hand Serum and both are available in a specially priced duo.
