It does have a light, fresh scent to it... somewhat lemony (is that a word?). Let's put it this way... the scent is light enough that my boyfriend will use this lotion.

It smells lemony/citrusy - it's not the fake wood polish lemon smell, but a softer, lighter scent. It's got grapeseed, apple extract and limonene (oil extracted from the citrus rind) - maybe that's where the lemony scent comes from. It doesn't smell fake, nor does it have that sweet perfume scent that too many hand creams have. It's a nice, fresh and light scent.

Question
Does this help soften the look of aged hands?
I'm only in my early 20's but didn't really take too much care of my hands. They definitely look aged and I have rough lines all over them =( I've been using the Clarin's hand lotion, but that hasn't really helped either. For those of you that use Bliss, waddya think?

Completely amazing! I bought a sample of the Bliss and the L'Occitane, as they are the hightest rated creams...the Bliss is far superior in my opinion. It left my hands looking and feeling hydrated for hours without feeling greasy and the smell is light...the L'O left a bit of a film, my hands still felt a bit rough.

I didn't find this to be an excellent product. It has a bit of an off smell, and its not as rich a lotion as I'd hoped for. I would recommend going for a richer and creamier product with coQ10 (for cracks and wrinkles), and/or soothing ingredients like chamomile, honey, shea butter, aloe, etc... good luck! From one dry handed chica to another ;)

Use SPF on your hands during the day. I think if you're concerned about aging, try this with the gloves for extra soft hands. Otherwise use an age-targeting treatment. Kiehl's has great products for this purpose.

yes, it does. But you need to use sunscreen all the time as well to protect your hands from age spots.

The cream is great to keep your hands moisturized, but I use a facial anti-wrinkle cream on my hands every night which works wonders!

I'm not sure if this cream actually reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the hands, but I do know it helps retain moisture, which would help your skin to appear younger over time.

Makes my hands look slightly younger, but then i only use it when my hands are dry- so maybe over time it will improve your skin- but i wouldn't bank on it.

Girl take care of the hands! This stuff WAY better than Clarins, IMO. Apply it after EVERY hand washing, and you'll see a difference in your 'old hands!'
