Hydrovance Heirloom Cream

I found Jean’s Heirloom Cream and the Honey Heirloom to be so intriqing and inspiring that I just HAD to do it with Hydrovance. I must admit, I am amazed at the dramatic difference that occurs in this cream when you change the humectant in these creams. Wow! It is unbelievable.This cream was really delightful because it left my skin baby soft and silky. I found my thumb was rubbing circles on my skin where I had rubbed in this cream. It was like my skin had been enveloped by this gossamer textile that I couldn’t stop enjoying the sensation of it under my fingers. Try this cream yourself. Request one in your order! I had to follow the Honey version of this recipe instead of the glycerin to follow the recommend usage rates for the Hydrovance. 37% Hydrovance in a recipe is a little over the recommended usage rate of 20%, don’t you think? Come join me in the kitchen for this magnificent cream.
