Julep Age Defying Hand Brightener and Glycolic Hand Scrub Review

A couple of weeks ago, Julep provided me with two new hand products to try out: their Glycolic Hand Scrub and Age Defying Hand Brightener. I was really excited to try both of these out because the cold, harsh Wisconsin winds can be so tough on my hands.

Unfortunately, I've only been able to try the Age Defying Hand Brightener 4 or 5 times. The first time I used it, I got a migraine from the scent. My head can be very sensitive to smells, so this is unfortunate and I've been a little weary about using it again. It does have a slight almost waxy residue which I don't quite like, either. Because of the scent issue I would not buy this product.

The Glycolic Hand Scrub I do like; as the name implies, it is a scrub made of apricot seeds which I like. However, I wouldn't buy this product for myself, either. I do have some skin sensitivities or allergies to some chemicals found in soaps or detergents, and after using this for a few weeks my skin is really drying out and getting the red glove look which seems to be an indication of a product allergy/sensitivity for me. So that's very disappointing, because I did like the product itself. No complaints about it!

Thank you to Julep for providing me with these products in exchange for an honest review.
