RESIST Ultimate Anti-Aging Hand Cream SPF 30 + Antioxidants has an elegant base and absorbs quickly to provide broad spectrum sun protection for two parts of the body that endure lots of elemental exposure - the hands. The packaging is both convenient and portable, making this easy to reapply throughout the day after extended sun exposure, hand washing, etc. This product may not be moisturizing enough for very dry skin (those seeking additional moisture may wish to try the RESIST Cellular Defense Daily Moisturizer with SPF 25 & Antioxidants, which I ordered for my hands before this product was available). However, many creams intended for the hands are very greasy and never seem to absorb (rendering a person useless after application) and, thankfully, this is not one of those hand creams. It is also great to find a daytime hand cream that does not irritate my skin or eyes, and that applies smoothly and seemingly without a trace. The price is a tad steep but no worse than comparable products sold by prestige cosmetic lines, and at least the Paula's Choice brand gives a sense of value since you are buying a high quality item that will prove effective for its intended purpose and possibly other uses (e.g. some users may find this cream is great for both hands and face). I wish this product contained a greater amount of antioxidants, but as Paula says it is better to have some antioxidants than to have none at all! I would buy this again based on the positive experience I've had using it and my overall confidence in Paula's Choice. It is definitely worth a try to see if it works for you.
