I inherited my grandma’s hands, not the hands she started with but the hands she finished with. I have terribly old-looking hands, my dad used to say to me as a teenager that I had his ma’s hands with their thin papery skin. My hands have always been a disappointment to me. Even on my wedding day, you know that traditional shot the photographer does of your hand over the husbands so you can see the rings? In our shot the photographer suggested it may be better if hubbies hand covered mine. Yeah I certainly have nanna hands.
I’ve spend a fortune over the years on potions, and I think I’ve tried them all. However last month the lovely people at FGB Natural Products (the people behind Bosito’s Tea Tree products) sent me their newest product to try Busby Pure Tissue Oil. So I thought what the heck, it’s worth a shot.
I decided I’d try to be a little more thorough in this review, and conducted my own before and after test. This means I’m going to scare you all with pictures of my nanna hands, and hey this freaks me out as much as it will you I assure you.
So, for a month I’ve been using Busby Pure Tissue Oil on my nanna hands, and before I get to the result let me show the before… Yeah I know, not pretty. There it is, that is my hand a month ago.
So what is it? Busby Pure Tissue Oil is made from avocado, grape seed and rose hip oils (it smells lovely) it is a face and body oil that is formulated to reduce the appearance of scars and stretch marks within 28 days. It has five times more vitamin e than other leading brands of tissue oils, plus vitamins A and C. It doesn’t contain paraffin or petrochemicals, just natural oils. Sounds good.
What surprised me about this oil was it is not greasy, ok it is when you first put it on, but a minute later it’s absorbed and the change to the appearance of your skin is immediate. I like that. A little goes a long way too, I’ve had to share this 100ml bottle with the spouse and I still have a third left after a month. The spouse has seen a difference in his skin, especially his psoriasis spots. And it is only $18 a bottle, compare that to a well known brand we all know and there is a saving to be had.
Now a month later, with almost applying it everyday…
There is a noticable difference. I have to tell you I wasn’t expecting that, but the back of my hand where the skin is the most nanna like is definately smoother. It’s going to take a LOT more to get rid of the nanna spots, but its a start! If I injure my hands they take ages to heal and almost always scar (as you can well see), there has been improvement in that department as well. So there you go, I’ll be buying it again and I’ve shared my secret shame of nanna hands with the world. It must be good.
