About Perfect Hands
Perfect Hands promises if you wear these special oil-infused gloves after microwaving them for 90 seconds, you will have spa-smooth skin. The manufacturers claim it uses the same ingredients as in a salon and it will get rid of dry skin, stiffness, and make your hands look years younger in the process.
But is this microwaved glove really a rejuvenating experience for your hands or a “perfect” way to waste your money. Let’s give them a closer look…
How Perfect Hands Works
Perfect Hands looks like an oversize gardening glove encased in a plastic covering, has a heart-shaped indicator on the back, and is filled with what they call “cosmetic-grade paraffin and essential oils.” While they fail to elaborate what these essential oils may be, there is image of an open coconut and some lavender shown in the video.
To use Perfect Hands, the instructions indicate to place in the microwave for 90 seconds – the heart indicator will tell you when it’s at the right temperature. Then, slip on the gloves and relax; after all, there’s not a lot you can do while your fingers are encased in these Minnie Mouse-sized plastic gloves.
The marketers claim the paraffin-and-oil combo contains essential anti-oxidation and anti-aging benefits, but they don’t cite any sources to back this up. After an undisclosed amount of time, they say your hands will emerge from the gloves looking more youthful. It is suggested you will perhaps have as blissful an expression on your face as the model in the infomercial does.
Perfect Hands Pricing and Returns
The makers say each Perfect Hands set can be used 4 times, so they tout your order as a “one month supply,” which costs $19.95 plus $7.95 shipping. However, they also automatically include a set of Perfect Hands for feet (shouldn’t it just be called Perfect Feet?) and charge another $7.95 in S&H. This makes the true total $35.85 for your order.
You have 30 days to try Perfect Hands and if it doesn’t ease pain and dryness as expected, you can return it for your initial $19.95 but not any of the added-on fees.
Bottom Line: Is Perfect Hands a Scam?
Perfect Hands may indeed heat up as promised in the microwave and let you lather your digits in paraffin (aka mineral oil) and other oils. But will this result in smoother, younger skin? This product seems to be being pitched with some unsubstantiated claims like “antioxidants” and “anti-aging” along with a promise you will have less joint pain.
But it seems to us you can achieve many of these results without these relatively expensive microwaveable gloves by creating a honey hand wrap or olive oil sugar scrub with these easy recipes using ingredients you probably already have at home.
