Lippman Collection Rich Girl Hand Cream Protects Your Paws with SPF

Published in: Product Reviews, Skin Care

My hands have now officially made it onto the “Body Parts I Wish I Slathered Consistently With Sunscreen At a Younger Age” list. Also on this list: neck, chest and feet.



I just recently started thinking about wrinkles on my hands. When I see women at malls and grocery stores who’ve obviously had some “work done,” the one thing that always confirms my suspicions is the appearance of the skin on their hands. The hands tell no lies, girlfriend.

Now I’m FREAKED OUT about all the years of sun damage my hands have endured. I know I can’t turn back the clock (sigh), but at least I can do the right thing now. Lippmann Collection Rich Girl ($24), a moisturizing hand cream with SPF 25, has entered my life at just the right time. Its active ingredients (oxtinoxate, octisalate and avobenzone) protect hands from UVB and UVA damage, the two major types of sun radiation.

While I don’t have age spots (yet), Rich Girl is also supposed to gently fade these tell-tale signs of aging with a “botanical lightening complex” of grape, mulberry and saxifraga (a perennial plant) extract.

I think it moisturizes my perpetually dry hands just as well as Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Hand Cream ($17, but no SPF) does, but Rich Girl makes my palms feel a little greasy — not annoyingly so, but still. Good thing I don’t walk around on my hands, lol! I think the light powdery fragrance makes up for the slightly slick feel.

Lippmann added a small, but nice touch by attaching the twist cap to the tube. Just turn the cap, give the bottle a squeeze, and then turn the cap back in the opposite direction to close it. I seem to have a knack for losing hand lotion caps, and I really appreciate this one.

The 3-oz tube will set you back $24, which is way, way out on the expensive side. I’ve been going through this stuff pretty quickly, too, because I wash my hands a lot. Because it is so pricey, I’ve supplemented it with the far cheaper Lubriderm Daily Moisture Lotion with SPF 15 ($8). The big problem with Lubriderm’s lotion, though, is the gargantuan 16-oz bottle it comes in — perfect for a counter at home but not ideal for a purse.

Also consider Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Age Shield Hand Cream with SPF 30 ($6 for a small 2-oz tube), another inexpensive alternative (although it doesn’t make the same anti-aging claims) to Rich Girl.

You can find Rich Girl at Nordstrom stores, or check it out online.

A Learning Experience

My favorite line from this song is, “What it all boils down to is that no one’s really got it figured out just yet.” Ain’t that the truth.

I hope your humpday’s been humptastical. What did you do today?

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

    I think I’ll check out the Neutrogena as I don’t really have the ageing signs yet ;) And I know where I can get it which is always a plus ;)
    I love Eight Hour cream for my legs though. Perfect after a shave ^^

    Gasp! I have 3 age spots on my hands. This is expensive though, so I need a substitute. Does Humpday refers to Wednesday? I’m glad the day is almost over.

    Thanks for posting a cheap alternative. For some reason, I’ll spend money on makeup, but I’m not nearly as willing to shell out cash for skin care or hair care. I’ll definitely check this out. I’m like sun phobic because my mom’s skin is crazy damaged from sun so I’m paranoid that will happen to me.

    Hi Karen, I have a tube of the 8 hour cream and it’s awesome during the winter. For anti-aging and sun protection purposes, I squirt a bit of my moisturizer with sunscreen to my hands, arms, and neck area. It’s doing quite alright for me and I want to finish that lotion as well. Have a nice day girl!

    I use the Neutrogena Age Shield everyday. I was never into hand cream until I found out this stuff had SPF. Love it!

  7. betsy says:

    Neutrogena it is then for me!
    For some odd reason, the 8-hour cream doesn’t sit that well with me…it doesn’t absord instantaneously and I find the smell a bit…strange?

  8. Karen says:

    Hi Karen B.,

    The earlier you start, the better. Take care of those hands (and neck! and chest!).

    Yeah, that Eight Hour cream works some moisturizing wonders, it’s true!

    I do :)
    Btw, got the Elizabeth Arden sheer lippie I talked about (spf, spf) and it’s good. The colour is not the same as on the packet though and no testers. Thank god I chose Melon which looked too pale on the packaging but is just right for me.
    And I got myself a new Glossimer in Blizzard ^^ Perfect colour for me! I checked out Ironic Tonic, but it was a tad too purple and dark for me.

    Karen Bs last blog post..flist is ♥
