This hand cream is very moisturizing and absorbs quickly. I like how it has staying power. Usually, I apply it at night before I go to bed but I've noticed that I reach for it more often now that it's colder. Smells a little funky though...but I've used it so much that I've gotten used to it.
Would have never tried this if I hadn't received a wonderful sample! Very nice. A thick cream, very deep moisture, seems to help heal cuticles too. A plus!
The moisturizing quality of this hand cream is decent, albeit not spectacular, but the smell is a huge drawback for me. It also leaves my hands sticky which I don't appreciate. Even my husband complained about it, It's just too strong, offensive and medicinal. This product is a clear no go for me, I can only recommend to try before you buy if you're sensitive to certain smells.
Wow, this stuff is amazing. I am sitting at my desk right now wishing I had some for the office again. I got this as a Christmas present last year and it really got my through a season of lots of paperwork and dry, cold weather. I don't have any memory of the scent, so it couldn't have been that bad. I've been trying to use cheaper substitutes since I ran out (Nivea creme, various samples), but nothing compares. I'm going to have to get another tube. The only down side is that I loved it so much I used it quick.
I love this hand cream! Definitely my Holy Grail! All I can say is if you want soft, beautiful hands, give this a try. I'll never be without it!
It feels nice, but why oh why does Kiehls have to stink? I mean, Clinique does fragrance free? And it does not reek.
I'm not exagerrating when I say this stuff works. It's an extremely thick, non-greasy, emolliate formula that moisturizes your hands on the deepest level. I'll agree that the smell is rather medical, but it wasn't what I would call unpleasant. All in all, a quality hand salve. Recommended, highly.
I got this as a gift with purchase at the Bergdorf Goodman website, and I thought this hand salve was great. I hadn't even heard of Kiehls until I got the hand salve. It really moisturizes and repairs dry hands. My hands are weird. Sometimes they're nice and moisturized, at other times, extremely dry and thirsty. But anyway, I use this when my hands are dry and it's not too thick at all. I really like the consistency of it and it doesn't leave a sticky, oily feeling like other lotions/creams. I gave this 4 lippies because of the smell. It smells like medicine, but the product itself would be a 5.
Don't like it, feels very sticky. Overated, smells to "medical"
This is most definately the best hand cream I have used. I have gone through 4 or 5 tubes of the large size and I now carry a small onw with me everywhere. I am a Professional Chef and let me tell ya, my hands hurt. This cream is like a fountian of youth. My hands can have cuts, burns, ripped cuticles, rashes, sctatches and if i put on just the right amount before I go to bed, when I wake up everything is significantly healed or gone. It has a cooling and revitalizing effect as well which helps soothe the pain of all that irritation. I cannot be without this hand salve - ever!
