Ever since I used M Lab’s body cream (saved for special occasions) I’ve been a fan of this range – even at the wince-making prices. On holiday I managed to sun-ravage my hands into some kind of mock-croc state – weirdly, nowhere else suffered the same fate but had the same amount of sun. Although I’d half-heartedly used M Lab Hand Treatment pre-holiday, I thought I’d give it another go to see if I could rid myself of 80 year old hands. I’ve been treating the dryness with a facial oil – more of which I will post about later – but adding the Hand Treatment over the top literally gave an overnight result. My hands looked this morning the age they should! The dryness – okay, lets call it by it’s proper name – wrinkles – has considerably smoothed away. And, I mean considerably. It’s probably the peptides that did it, because while the formula contains skin brighteners, you wouldn’t expect an overnight result. Or maybe it was the collagen boosts with lipo-filling action (nope, no idea what that is, but I’ll assume it fills in the creases). Whatever, it was a spectacular improvement. At £55, I’d expect something approaching a miracle, and sure enough, as I’ve found with all M Lab products, it really did deliver.
M Lab uses highly active ingredients (67%) and plenty of them, so the range isn’t for everyone – particularly if you are sensitive to actives, but I’m really happy that I’ve managed to rejuvenate my dreadful hands. The formula is also very moisturising and gives a bit too much sheen for a while. It soon goes away, but I prefer it as a night treatment, although as I’m about to pop off for a sunny weekend break, I might take advantage of the SPF20 and try and prevent OAP hands again!
