High and Low- Bliss High Intensity Hand Cream


The best thing about being used to really good products is being able to identify and dismiss low performing lotions and potions. Today's underachiever is the over-hyped High Intensity Hand Cream from Bliss.

It's not a bad cream, but given a very dry skin and winter conditions, my finicky skin, which used to a daily pampering in Chanel's wonderful hand lotion and generous doses of L'Occitane products, is not impressed. The cream absorbs fast, provides some relief, but on bad skin days it's not enough, and it doesn't protect much from harsh environment.

My biggest issue with this cream is the scent. Synthetic and lemony, it just doesn't feel luxurious, and at $18 for 2.5 oz (compare to L'Occitane at $25 for 5.2 oz), the least it could do is make me smell good.

  1. If you are looking for an AMAZING hand cream you should try Topix Pharmaceutical's INTENSIVE HAND CREAM. You don't need a perscription for it but I'm pretty sure its only available through doctor's offices...or you can try and search for it online. ITS UNBELIEVABLE!!!!!
