I read the reviews on QVC and on line reviews - people differ on this product.

They agreee it expoliates and eliminates brown spots gradually, however all agree that is much too expensive.

I use this product & it really works well. Yes, it is a bit pricey, but a little goes a long way, so price per daily use seems reasonable to me. I'll keep using it as long as it's available.

Is this the same as Absolutely Magic Hand Treatment? I bought several 2.5 ounce off Ebay for $2.25 a piece. It works well.

Me neither. My husband can be "thrifty" and said he'd use it. (he's a surgeon) Even he couldn't get past the aroma.

The smell is nauseating/headache inducing. It doesn't fade either.

She always claims it has dimethicone. That is in most foot creams. Try a rich foot cream on your hands. I do it all the time.

I used it for awhile and it turned my knuckles very brown. My hands looked very bad. My knuckles returned to their natural color after I stopped using the JR product.

I tried it once, when it was in a OTO kit. It works great but it stinks! I, like some of the others, could not get past the strong, dare I say overpowering, scent.

I don't have brown spots on my hands but I tried it because she went on about how well it hydrates the hands. I agree with the other poster that said she could not get past the smell. I realize the scent is caused by the ingredient that works on age spots but that is not my issue. Even if it was I doubt I could stand putting something that smelled that bad on my skin.

I found her hand cream in Marshall's or TJ Maxx. It's not my favorite. I prefer Philosophy Hand Cream or just plain ol' Jergens. HTH

I bought 2 small tubes on e-bay,much cheaper than Q. However I do NOT recommend it. For 1 thing I can not tell it has helped at all & I am almost out of both tubes. 2nd, I rubbed some excess on my neck,broke out in terrible rash. Had no idea what caused it,til I rubbed excess another time on my inner arms,same thing terrible rash. Someone said it isn't for use except on hands. I am very careful to use ONLY on hands til I finish the last tube.

The cost just isn't worth no results except for a rash!
