Thank goodness this stuff comes in reasonably priced three-packs at Costco. I started using this on my hands because they could snag anything. Then put it on my feet every night. Darn, crazy good. I used to have to file down my feet w/ a PedEgg every night or so just to keep from catching my foot on the rug loops. With this cream, the bottom of my feet totally changed. I used to have a white line of dry skin in every crevice under foot. And shards for heels. Now all white lines are gone and I hardly have to file down my feet. What is in this cream that isn't in every other cream I've tried?
Because of my job, I have to wash my hands at least 40-50 times a shift with harsh ant-microbial soap. I also use the anti-bacterial hand sanitizers about 20 times in one shift. Needless to say all this harsh soap and hand washing really takes a toll on my hands and nails. My hands get so dry I could probally sandpaper walls with them. They get so bad they sometimes crack and bleed, even in the summer. It seems I have used almost every hand cream under the sun, and most of them are ok. That being said this in one of my staple hand creams, I will not be without this. I have one in my purse, one in my car, one in my work bag, you get the drift.
It is a little greasy, but I need that. Also a little goes a long way and I love that you can buy this at almost any drugstore or super market. I use the fragrance free version and I also love the one with SPF. I have also used this on my lips and other dry areas like elbows or feet. Like another reviewer noted this is great to use on a sore nose and dry patches on your face.
$1.29 for 0.5 oz at Bed Bath & Beyond, perfect purse-size. Second time purchase. 0.5 oz lasts one week for me.
Feels like thick Vaseline. Less greasy than Aquaphor. Can get sticky. Good for evening use on cracked heels and dry cuticles.
Edit: Third time purchase, finally sprung for the full size one $3.67 for 2 oz at Walmart, on sale for $2.97. continued >>
Well Im 21 and my mom has had this stuff since I was at least 6 years old. Her doctor actually recommended it because her hands were so dry they had cracked and bled. This stuff is amazing a must have in the winter for sure. I love that it's multi-purpose. I have oily acne-prone skin but I still get really dry patches around my nose. This is the only thing that helps. Plus when you get sick and have to blow your nose 5 million times in a day, you(if your lucky like me) end up with the skin around your nose so dry it peels and is very sore-put this on your nose at night and every time it wears it will save your nose-LOL. Sure the tube costs $9.99 CDN but it literally can last you years, a little goes a very long way, seriously!
At first I loved this, it made my hands amazingly soft and smooth, but after a short time, it made my hands start to chap! I must be allergic to something in it, or it's one of those 'moisturisers' that actually dry you out so you have to buy more?
I like how this hand cream smells so inviting and pure. The only problem is, it's so concentrated that it kinda hurts when trying to blend. It says the hand cream may be also used on the lips, but it did not moisturize my lips at all. I won't repurchase only because I bought the value pack from cosco and it will last me for a long time.
I love this hand cream!!!
You only need a tiny bit and it will help your hands in no time, especially in cold winter weather!
One tube lasts one winter for me, so the price of about 5 Euro is absolutely fine.
I don't even want to try other hand creams, because I know I will be disappointed.
The formula goes on so smooth, absorbs quickly, moisturizes very well and the scent is soo lovely.
One of the best hand cream out there. I work in a healthcare setting so I'm constantly washing my hands. This is non-greasy and moisturize my hands well. A must have for the winter!
Best hand cream I've dried. My hands aren't really dry at all, but I like to moisturise them anyway (because you can never be too moisturised!) You only need a tiny tiny size of the moisturiser to use on your hands. It doesn't feel greasy or heavy at all, and soaks in pretty quickly, unlike all the other hand creams I've tried. Basically this hand cream has glycerin and a synthetic fish extract to keep your skin smooth and soft all day. It really does work. Not to mention, because you only need to use a little bit, it'll last for AGES!
My HG hand cream! It works both in the long-run to soften and moisturise your hands, and straight away to provide instant relief.
