Jan Marini: Marini Luminate Hand Cream | Review

Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

Hands are among the most neglected parts of the body when it comes to skincare use, and for all that they do for us every single day we often forget to protect and moisturize them. In fact, like the neck, hands tend to become ravaged by the vicissitudes of time when neglected, and therefore a good hand cream and a high SPF sunscreen go a long way toward their pampering and protection.

Jan Marini Marini Luminate Hand Cream is an emollient, lightweight and ultra concentrated cream that delivers a surge of moisture to dry, parched skin. Furthermore, it eliminates dry patches and leaves skin soft, smooth, even in tone and luminous. The antioxidant-rich formula is made with an effective blend of hydrators, and brightening agents such as Azelaic Acid, Licorice Root Extract and Kojic Dipalmitate that fade hyperpigmentation, and retinol to soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. While the skin on my hands is not crepey from aging, I often note that they are dry from neglecting to use hand lotion after washing my hands throughout the day. This cream unquestionably leaves my skin remarkably soft, smooth, hydrated and luminous. I will say, however, that I have a couple of freckles on my arm, from repeated sun exposure, that this hand cream is causing to fade. Marini Luminate Hand Cream has a light and pleasant fragrance, but it does fade quickly. Because of the retinol and brightening agents in this hand cream, it is imperative to apply a high SPF sunscreen to all treated areas to offer skin appropriate protection.

According to Jan Marini,

  1. I'm testing a different anti aging hand cream but I'm not seeing any real changes as yet. I'd like to try this one from Marini next

    1. Hi Allison, this is definitely a hand cream that you should try– especially since you have had such good luck with Jan Marini products!

    1. I agree, their products are really fantastic! I think that you would be very impressed by the efficacy of this hand cream, Erika.

  4. I wash my hands so frequently and barely remember to apply handcream. My husband is actually better at remembering than I am. So many are ineffective but this doesn't sound that way.

    1. I do the same thing, and often either forget to use hand cream, or don't have a tube of it on me. This hand cream is definitely among the effective ones!

  5. I don't know if I'm at the stage need an advanced hand cream, but my skincare loving self is super impressed with the sound of this formula.

    1. It's a great hand cream, and I actually think that it is a great idea to start pampering the hands preemptively. Hands take the brunt of sun exposure, and a good exfoliating hand cream and a high SPF sunscreen are great at any stage.
