All Things Hand featuring MERCI HANDY Hand Creams

 I'm reintroducing hands cream again into my routine because why not. I consider them  a kind of luxury that my hands can truly enjoy besides applying lotion. Anyhow, these small hand cream tubes  work beautifully. They absorb quickly into the skin and definitely work. As a result, my hands feel soft, hydrated and nourished. The best part? They have this subtle fragrance that lingers which means your hands will smell so good all day long.

* Blue = New Wave

* Red = Cherry

How about you? What is your favorite hand cream lately?

My Overall Thoughts / Experiences

*SCENT = None

*TEXTURE = Feels super lightweight and is easily absorbed by the skin

*EFFECTS = This is very hydrating and soothing to the skin. At the same time, my skin feels plump and hydrated every after use.


- Like using both in my morning and evening skincare routine.

- For my morning routine, I like using this to give my skin that extra layer of hydration.

- For my evening routine, I use a generous amount concentrating on my eye area, smile lines, and forehead to combat signs of aging.

- Happy to report that this product didn't break me out

- This comes in handy especially when I got sick for a week or so. I just only used this with a toner and a light gel cream and a serum and that was it. Still, I noticed  my skin looked healthy and firm literally.

- Overall, this is a good product to begin with. Definitely, worth trying to those who want to start incorporating anti-aging products. Lastly, the skincare lover in me ( who by the way loves anti-aging products too) is very satisfied in using this serum. This is a good addition to my skincare routine. Will using this until I empty it. Actually, I'm already planning in repurchasing this soon when I get the chance.

Happy Friday! Let's push and it'll be the weekend soon. Take care.

My Overall Thoughts / Experiences

*SCENT : None

*TEXTURE : It's watery and runny. Doesn't feel sticky. Sinks into the skin immediately

*EFFECTS : Makes the skin, soft, smooth and bright too.

*** Overall, I really love using this product and it's a good addition to my skincare routine. Though it contains acids, still it feels gentle enough to use. Also, I noticed my skin's texture looks and feels better and smoother in general. Because of that, I highly recommend this to anyone who wants to try a gentle chemical exfoliator. My tired and dull skin likes this a lot.
