I absoutely love this product. It is one of the very many products that I have tried that leaves my skin very smooth. I use this mainly on my elbows and knuckes where my skin tends to get the driest and it works like a charm. The formula is a little greasy at first, but it soon goes away after awhile, but I guess I like more greasier lotions/creams as I think they do a better job with moisturising. I use this sometimes on my face around my nose before I apply my foundation in Winter. Weird, I know considering its for hands, but it works incredibly well, and doesn't give me that 'flaky' look I hate so much. I have repurchased this again, and will continue too :)
I like it because it's cheap and reminds me of my grandmother, who used the stuff religiously. There are positives and negatives here. It makes my skin very soft and smooth immediately, and sinks in/dries very quickly, so I am not waiting 5 minutes for my cream to dry. Also, you only need a tiny dab. Downside, it doesn't moisturize as much as a really high quality hand cream, leaving my cuticles a bit dry. It's good as a supplement to a high quality hand cream such as Aveda or l'occitane if you are like me, and wash hands/dishes 20 times a day and reapply hand cream even more (I could go through a big tube of l'occitane in a week!), but it will not replace these other creams, and you will probably need a cuticle cream with it.
This product is a classic. I recently bought a tube having not used it for 20 years or so. It hasn't changed and is the best cream I've ever used for really dry hands and feet.
I've used Neutogena's Nowegian Formula Hand Cream on and off for years. In fact it used to be my "go to" hand cream and I had it on hand (pardon the pun) in the kitchen, my bedside table, my little bathroom and the laundry room. But I sort of got out of the habit of using it as I accumulated other hand creams over the years. Recently, I was sent a sample and was reminded, again, what a great product it is so I will be buying it again. In a harsh Canadian winter and when you wash your hands as often as I do (I teach food and nutrition classes!), my hands take a real beating and if this stuff works for the fishermen of Norway, I can understand how it works so well for me.
I bought it initially as an overall hand creme (because they were out of my fave, Eucerin PLUS Intensive Repair Hand Creme) and I was desperate. As a hand creme, it doesn't compare to my usual Eucerin - it helped heal cracked, dry skin but it was so thick and uncomfortable and took a while to sink in. On the other hand, it is fantastic as an on-the-go eye cream. During the winter, my eyelids and undereyes get unbearably dry and flaky. I just dab a bit of this stuff and my eyes are instantly relieved. I just use the tiniest amount to get a moisture boost without disturbing my eye makeup too much. It is also great for spot-treating of very dry cracked skin.
I really like this hand cream - it leaves my skin feeling so soft and hydrated without the greasy heavy feeling most hand creams leave after using. Only a small bit is required so the tube lasts a long time.
A really ho hum hand cream with a slightly drying effect so you have to keep applying it. After trying Herbacin Kamille hand cream from Germany, I realized just how poor quality this is. If you think this hand cream is good, wait until you actually try a good one.
I bought this after reading about it on someone's blog. My hands get very dry, especially in the winter and this is keeping them soft. When you first put it on it feels like Vaseline, but it goes away once you rub it in. I like the smell of it. Both my sister and my mother went out and bought this after I let them use mine.
This is the best! I have extremely dry skin and eczema flare-ups during the winter. I keep tubes of this all over my house and it's the only thing that keeps my hands silky smooth. It's a little heavy for some people, but I loooove it. Can't go a day without it.
Thee best cream for every part of your body. I actually use this on my face and mostly my lips. It's gentle and just does the job, nothing complicated. I wish all products were like this. No fragrance and that makes it a home run. I only wish it came in a larger, much larger tube.
