Twolacqueredgirls.com reviews: Hand Perfection Anti-aging hand care system for younger looking hands, plus a GIVEAWAY!
(These products were sent to me for my honest opinion)
As you already know: I am always on the hunt for a hand cream that works miracles! It’s nice to have your nails painted but if your hands and mainly for me your cuticles are dry and unkempt; it doesn’t really matter how nice the color of your nail polish is, I can’t see past the dry cuticles on myself or others (I deal with this issue all the time).
Cuticles… My cuticles were my worst enemy, until I tried Neutrogena hand cream a couple months back. I never though that it was possible that my cuticles would ever look healthy. I was a habitual cuticle cutter… so bad that sometimes I would cut off so much skin that my cuticles would bleed. I thought that cutting was the only way to keep my cuticles looking neat. It was a vicious cycle of dry cracked cuticles, red irritated skin and hangnails galore and my only remedy was to cut.
Even though I would use loads of thick creams and oils, I still found the need to cut because I could never get my skin to stop peeling. Neutrogena Hand Cream helped me to get my cuticles healthy and I stopped cutting them expect for when I had a hang nail or two, however I was hoping to find a cream that wasn’t jelly based and that didn’t feel so weird on the tips of my fingers.
I was so excited when I was contacted to test a new Hand Care System from a new company called Hand Perfection! I really like the fact that they reached out to the nail blogging community to test out this system because who better to inform a potential buyer, since nail bloggers use and abuse their hands everyday.
So this was day one before I started testing Hand Perfection Anti-aging hand care system. As you can see the skin on the sides of my nails were somewhat dry and I still had to cut a tiny bit because I was still forming hang nails.

Try our Nail & Cuticle Pen… It’s clinically proven to significantly improve the look and feel of nails and cuticles in as little as 5 days and reduces tearing, splitting , peeling and cracking.
Nourishing Day Cream
The nourishing day cream has a very light scent that isn’t over powering and feels like silk on your skin. It absorbs fairly quickly once it is applied and doesn’t leave your skin feeling sticky, wet or even that you just put cream on; all you feel is silky soft skin. I would use a dab of this cream about two to three times a day when I would start to feel dry (mostly likely after washing my hands).
Rejuvenating Night Cream
The Rejuvenating Night Cream has a very light aloe scent that isn’t over powering and melts into your skin. It absorbs fairly quickly once it is applied and doesn’t leave your skin feeling sticky, wet or even that you just had put cream on; all you feel is soft moist skin. I would use a little more than what I showed you in the picture above, right before going to bed. I would apply the cream to both of my hands and if I used too much cream I would rub it up all the way to my elbows.
There is a difference between the Day and Night Creams: The Day cream is thicker and leaves your skin feeling like silk. The Night cream is more watery and leaves your skin feeling moisturizing and soft but not as silky as the day cream. I like that the two cream are different and that they come in different packaging.
Nail & Cuticle Pen
The Nail & Cuticle Pen has a weird scent but thankfully you can’t smell it unless you are sniffing your fingers. The pen is easy to use. I would use the pen before putting on the night cream. The oil from the pen goes on easily and doesn’t really make a mess. I would use one click per hand and use the pen to rub the oil on the cuticles and nails until it was absorbed so the process would take about five minutes.
On the box it states that:
It’s clinically proven to significantly improve the look and feel of nails and cuticles in as little as 5 days and reduces tearing, splitting , peeling and cracking.
to me tearing, splitting, peeling and cracking are all really the same thing= nail breakage.
First my nail will start to split down the middle of the tip. Then some of the layers of the nail will left up and start to peel off. I will lightly buff out the peel but if too many layers were peeled off than the nail will finally crack and tear off.
I can tell you that this pen, with use of the day and night cream did help to REDUCE splitting (instead of every nail splitting at some point during the month, I only had 4 out of 10 nails so signs of splitting) ,which is a win in my book.
Also if you have sensitive skin like I have or get rashes on your hands, this system will not irritate your skin. I have eczema on the inside of my ring and middle fingers and also on the top of my palm on my left hand. The eczema tends to flareup when I’m stressed. I have a balm that I use from Guatemala that clears it up but I ran out of it about a month ago and I am waiting for my Grandma to get me something this month when she goes on vacation. Using the Hand Care System DID NOT aggravate my eczema nor did it help it, which I wasn’t expecting it to. However I am really glad that it didn’t, because some creams really aggravate my flareups and makes my skin burn since sometimes the flareups open up and expose raw skin.
So these pictures are from 30 days of using the Day cream 2-3 times a day and the Night cream and Nail & Cuticle Pen daily.
I was surprised that this system worked so well for me. I usually don’t like anything that is endorsed by a celebrity. After 30+ days of use my hands felt softer (even my boyfriend noticed), I was using less lotion than before to keep my hands from looking dry and ashy. My cuticles looked healthier and I had less hang nails and I really didn’t need to use the cuticle cutter one than once a week for a little snip here and there.
Also, I have no idea how the system helped this but Bob (cat) had stuck his claw and cut me really deep were my hand and wrist meet. It had healed to a nasty shade of brown, but since I have been using the system the scar is half its size and it is almost the same shade as the palm of my hand. I am very happy about this because it was nasty to look at and I wasn’t expecting this system to “heal” it since I had been using other creams and it never changed.
