It is hard working in a dr. office and having to constantly wash my hands. This keeps my hands from cracking and peeling around the cuticles. Everyone in the office uses this. There is no other hand cream that offers better protection. Its a great product for rough heels and knees.
I used to have the most crazy dry hands during the winter. They would crack and bleed, and no moisturizer I tried was able to sooth the skin there... until I finally threw down and bought this product at a local drugstore. I applied a tiny amount, like the label said, and felt relief for the first time that winter. This was about seven or eight years ago, and I haven't looked back since. This stuff just does the job.
Really soothes the skin, leaving it feeling soft and smooth. Great for skin around cuticles. It doesn't feel too greasy like other creams I've tried, but can be if applied in bigger amounts. Formula is quite thick, so you only need a little bit. The 0.5oz/14g tube lasts a long time and is great for carrying around in bag.
I just picked this up at my local drug store and I must say I am impressed. I really need my hand cream to be super moisturizing now that I live up north and my hand get super dry. This is definitely worth buying and giving a try. One of the better hand creams in my opinion. The formula is clear and when you rub your hands together it turns white for a few seconds and sinks in. I rub it into my cuticles slowly, I find that helps a lot.
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.
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.
