I was given this as a gift and would definitely not purchase myself at the price this sells at.
The cream is very siliconey in feel and is so strongly scented that it overpowers my perfume (even on days when I'm wearing potent stuff like Tabu, just to give you an idea.)
What I find most annoying is that it doesn't leave my hands moisturised for long, in fact daily use over a number of days seems to dry my hands out more in the long run. Not great.
Got a free sample of the "Water" Hand Cream at a convention. The scent has improved and I liked the (slightly runny) formula. more like a lotion than a cream. Good on legs and arms, too.
I find this to be an average handcream. It moisturizes, but for me the effect was just temporary. What I loved, was the smell! I donīt think Iīll buy this again, it just didnīt leave a great impression, just an ok one.
I bought Ahava Mineral Hand Cream after reading reviews on this forum and spalook.com. Again, the cream per se is all right. The smell is terrible.
Absolute HG status for me and my grandmother, who turned me onto this and we have both tried plenty of hand creams over the years. You only need a very small amount, so the tube does last a long time, which is good as it is expensive for a hand cream and not the easiest thing to get hold of where I live (I buy on ebay from a seller in Isreal). It moisturises instantly, doesn't dull a manicure and doesn't feel greasy. My cuticles look moisturised and healthy within seconds of applying. Absolutely perfect to use before taking photographs of your nails, as you don't get the glare like you do from using cuticle oil. I do love their foot cream too, but I've often used this on my feet instead and it works great. I much preferred this to the Dermud version which is an odd colour, a different texture and didn't sink in as well. I have repurchased this for years and found nothing that compares to it's awesome magical powers! A flip top would be nice, as screwing a lid on when you've got a blob of hand cream on is a bit of a nuisance.
this is review for the ahava deadsea water mineral hand crea. after the ahava dermud hand cream was discontinued, i bought a small tube of this to try and it is not bad. it feels lighter in texture than the dermud but moisturizing level is the same. i like the scent and doesnt leave my hands feeling greasy so i went and purchased a full size of it and have been using it for a year now.
Beautiful! smell and moisture and its cute for the purse too, not too big. Very good hand cream even tough i don't use as much because i like to experiment with other stuff which i gotta stop because i found a very good one:)
Want your hands to feel velvet soft? Try this! Seriously though, this makes my skin feel softer then any other lotion or cream ever. I love this. The smell is nice too.
I received a sample of this in the July 2011 Birchbox. It's very moisturizing without being overly greasy. I wasn't crazy about the scent at first, but I got used to it eventually. I don't think I'd buy a full-size tube of this because it's pretty pricey for me, but otherwise it's a decent hand cream. I'd like it more if the scent weren't quite so strong.
Living in Chicago in winter time is so brutal. My hands constantly dry out and become ashy. This is just what I need. It's soft, buttery, and absorbs into your skin in seconds! I don't care too much for the scent but I did enjoy the fact that it did as it claimed and wasn't sticky or greasy.
The only thing I can not like about the product (besides the fragrance) is the packaging. I would have like a flip top instead.
