Purederm Deep Moisture Hand Mask Review

I like to wash my hands regularly up to the point that it has become a habit which eventually leads to dry hands. I have stopped using hand sanitizers because of the alcohol content in it. That's why i always have lots of wet wipes with me to keep my hands clean all the time, but it is still managing to dry my hands with my constant hand wiping.


That's why i have brittle nails. Constant hand washing takes away the oil from your hands & nails that is necessary in protecting & making your nails stronger. Constant hand washing is recommended of course but too much is bad. We know that too much of something is bad,right?

Anyway, i try to use hand creams & lotions as much as i can to make up for it but sometimes it's not enough, especially in the evening when the AC is in full blast. It's making it hard for me to use my touch screen phone because it keeps slipping from my hands.

It's a good thing that i get to try this hand mask for it would be good for my dry hands. So, let's get to know this product...

Purederm Deep Moisture Hand Mask

It has Almond oil & Shea Butter on it that is know for their good moisturizing ability. 

This is the description at the back & also the direction in using it. There's a korean & english description in it.

It is divided in two...
The top part is where the dry stuff are packed like the plastic gloves & the tape that will be used in securing the edge of the gloves.. the bottom part is where the hand mask is.

These are what's included in the top part...

Then the hand masks... it actually smells pretty nice!

See how big it is?
Even males with really big hands can use this...

Sorry if the pics are not really clear because i am using both hands & i can't find my tripod so it looks a bit blurry.

This is the before pic... if you zoom it in, you'll see the dryness especially in my fingers.

My phone really keeps in slipping & it's hard to text message because of my dry hands..grrr!

I applied it on my hands...

Waited for 30 minutes...
then voila!

My hands are all moist & soft. No more dry spots & my hand smells good!

What i like about this product is that the formula is almost fluid-like which makes it easier for the skin to be absorbed. It might not be water-based that is readily absorbed by the skin, but this leaves the skin really moist as the product seeps in the skin.

It doesn't leave you with an ultra-oily feeling that some lotion leaves upon application. It would somehow feel silky. I used this in the evening & the moment i wake up, my hands felt like how it was before.. the effect will only be temporary.

I just used it once so i don't know what will be the long-term effect of this if ever. I would want to see if it will make a difference through long-term use. But this is a pretty nice product to have when your hands really need a deep moisturizing that ordinary lotions can't give.

There is only one lotion that i've used that can come close to providing the moisture that this product gave me. It is the Skin MD Shielding lotion, which is not locally available....too bad.

It is priced for Php 79 ( i think). It could either be expensive or cheap depending on how you feel about it. If you like the instant "moisturization" that it provides & if it indeed will produce a good effect after a long-term use then this is definitely worth it! 

But when you think about it, it's just for one application so it might be pretty expensive buying the pack over & over.

So, let's do a summary...
  • you'll see instant effect.
  • locally available
  • smells nice
  • will really leave your hands feeling silky soft
  • the effect will only last for a while
Will i buy it?
Yeah, but not really that often.
I won't say that this would be a staple for me, but it would be nice to have especially during 'emergency' situations.

Have you tried any hand masks? What brand?
If not, what do you do in keeping your hands moisturize?

Hope y'all have a great day,hunnies!

product was sent for review purposes. this post is my 100% honest opinion.

Thanks for sharing this =D hmm, I wonder how long it last... maybe full week or half a week and you have to keep doing it once a week like clay mask on your face or something? I'm really interested! I've never seen it around here.
