There are NO harsh chemicals, fillers, dyes, synthetic fragrances, artificial ingredients, additives or preservatives in my ‘night’ hand and body cream to harm or dry out your skin. All Ingredients contain antioxidants (which kill the free radicals that dry out, damage and age your skin). Since my ‘night’ cream also contains a mixture of oils and water, it should be refrigerated to extend shelf life. Should last for 6 months. Dry any moisture that builds up under the lid. Read “Welcome” page for more information.
Luxurience Hand and Body Creams will make your skin feel “silky smooth”. It is, what I call, a “LUXURIous indulgENCE“. Use the ‘night’ cream after taking your evening bath or shower. You just need a small amount of it to massage into your driest areas: backs of hands, crepey skin on arms, legs, hard elbows, cracked heels etc. I, personally, don’t like using any oils on my face but, if you do, you can start with a very small amount. Just keep away from the eyes. Essential oils will burn.
INGREDIENTS: I have been working on my ‘night’ cream recipe for awhile now. There are many new ingredients in this recipe plus many of the ingredients that are in the day cream. The ingredients that are in this recipe are meant to help heal your dry, chapped skin overnight. Since my ‘night’ cream is much thicker than my ‘day’ cream, it will absorb slowly throughout the night and should moisturize your skin all night long. It is ideal for crepey skin and cracked heels. The motto of “Less is more” applies here. You don’t need a lot of cream. It spreads very well.
