Sunday Samples: Julep Facial for Hands Glycolic Hand Scrub

 I got a 1oz. sample size of Julep's Facial for Hands Glycolic Hand Scrub in my May Cinco De Mayo Surprise Box.

So, Julep says...
Julep Facial for Hands is based on our very popular Julep Girlfriend’s Glycolic Manicure.  Potent glycolic acid combined with apricot seeds provides powerful double exfoliation that leaves your hands feeling noticeably softer and looking younger after just one use.  Naturally scented with orange oil for a refreshing aromatherapy boost with each use.

The Girlfriend’s Glycolic Manicure is $58 in our parlors – but just one at-home tube provides over 30 uses.  And as our Parlor Members know, commitment to a glycolic regimen produces more dramatic results.  This product is perfect for anyone battling dry, dull skin, age spots and fine lines on your hands. 

The full size is $32 or $25.60 for Julep Mavens... but the website does not specify the size of the tube.

You apply a dime size amount to damp hands and scrub, scrub, scrub.  The orange scent is faint, but nice.  I really like that the glycolic acid is providing a chemical exfoliation while the apricot seeds exfoliate manually.  It has just the right amount of scrubby apricot seeds.  You can really feel it working, but it doesn't feel harsh or scratchy.  The bottle says it is gentle enough to use every time you wash your hands... That is a bit excessive.  I think my hand would greatly benefit from using this once a day.  After using this scrub my hands feel softer and smoother and my hand cream really sinks right into my skin.

So, to buy or not to buy?  It depends on the size I guess.  $25.60 could be a lot for a scrub depending on how much you are getting and I was disappointed that the website does not say how many ounces the tube holds.  But, I do really like it so I may just splurge on it and find out myself :)

Has anyone tried this scrub? Do you know how big it is?
