I love it! Keeps my hands moisturized during the winter, and I actually use it on my face at night. I used to have dry patches that would get accentuated by all kinds of make up until I started putting Hemp Hand Protector on my face at night. Fixed it right up, the only moisturizer that has really helped me with this. It has not broken me out. Smells good. The metal tube ruptured when it got old, I guess the material gets worn down until it breaks, but that's a small price to pay, it's a great product!
After reading the reviews on this one, I thought I'd give it a try and bought the 30 ml tube. Well, in the beginning, I LOVED the packaging. After a while, though, when you fold the "used" part down, it breaks in a strange kind of way, and a little cream comes out. Doesn't really bother me, it's just a bit strange. It's really good looking when it's new though.
So. The cream.
You only need a little because it's very concentrated, in the beginning I took way too much and ended up with terribly greasy hands. It's enough with an amount the size of a pea, do it many times instead to avoid the greasy don't-touch-anything feeling. It takes a while for it to sink in, so it's more of a night treatment for hands than a touch-up cream. But when it's done - wow! My hands are super soft, and they keep on being that for a while (doesn't go away when washing hands). I get a lot of compliments for my hands, and I think some of it is thanks to Hemp Hand Protector!
P.S. The smell is a chapter for itself. In the beginning I didn't like it, but when I came to the conclusion that this really helps my hands, it grew and now I like it a lot. Some of my friends hate it though, well they change when they try it themselves! D.S.
One of my HG hand creams~ love love love. Personally, I think the price is very reasonably for a product that works so well and a little goes a long way, it's really concentrated and you only need a small amount each time. The packaging is..different, in a very bendable metal tube, and sometimes the top gets a little messy and it splits at the sides, especially when you get to the last of the product. But hey, it works and it works wonders for my hands and cuticles. And the smell grows on you, I'm getting to really like it. A must for the winter months!
This is my all time favorite hand protection during winter months. I work in a hospital and wash my hands a gazillion times a day. This is the only product beside hot paraffin wax that actually helps heal and soothe my skin. I have coworkers that have hands that crack and bleed from all of the hand washing and once I introduce this to them, they fall in love with it. I like that I can carry it in my pocket while I'm at work. I also will put it on before bed and wear cotton gloves. The next morning my hands are soft as butter. Excellent product!
From having worked at TBS, I've learnt and discovered that the hemp hand protector is a legend product. It contains essential fatty acids your body needs to keep itself moisturized (omega 3). I would always recommend this to doctors/nurses/art teachers/builders as it really does moisturize.
The smell is abit different, lots of people get put off by the smell, but I'd say its the only thing that works to fully repair hands.
The packaging i have a love/hate relationship with. Its different (a bendy metal kind of material), and its a nice product to look at, however it dents very easily and sometimes splits!
I would recommend rubbing the hand protector into your nails and cuticles aswell as I find this helps nail growth.
You only need to use a tiny bit (the size of a pea) for both hands as it is very greasy.
A friend of mine has recommend it to me. I'm a nurse and it really not god for my hands with all that washing and desinfection several times a day... espesially in winter time... This cream makes wonders! It's enough to put on at night and you wake up with soft skin. I've repurchased it 2 times already and I'm going to do this again )))
Hands down, all puns intended, this is the best cream for dry hands. I take it with me traveling, but the hemp smell is a little much for my face, though it keeps me moisturized all day. I also keep a tube right by the kitchen sink so that I can soothe my hands after dishes, cleaning, and in between my massage sessions (I'm a massage therapist). This is one of the best. If they could "de-patchouli" it, it would be nearly perfect, but I've grown accustomed to the scent after buying it for so long. Buy some! It'll treat you well!
I work in a hospital and wash my hands 4 or more times an hour...so you can only imagine the shape of said hands before I found this product. I was actually in TBS looking for xmas gifts, and struck up a convo with the salesperson. We got on the subject of winter skin, rough hands, etc etc...and she suggested this. Now normally I would sail right by anything that says "hemp", but she swore by it. Well, let me tell you, I am a complete convert, and have totally hooked other people at work. My hands used to be so bad that an hour after a professional mani little flakes and raggedy edges would pop up - but no more! I was not in love at first...it's pretty greasy and more like a salve than a lotion, and I wasn't loving the herbal-y smell either. BUTafter only a few days of using this 1x-2x a day my hands are like a completely different persons!!!! I put it on in the morning when I get in the car to go to work which gives it some time to settle in and the smell disappears quickly, and sometimes if it's been a particularly dry day I'll put some on for the drive home. I will still take 1 lippie off for the packaging, which gets gunky around the top and looks crinkly/ugly after a couple squeezes...but this is the ONLY handcream (Burt's Bees, Aquaphor, Nuetrogena, Sally Hansen, and the list goes on) that works the wonders this works with only 1x-2x daily application.
this is my all time favorite hand cream! i've been using it for about 6 years now, and nothing else compares to it. sometimes, when i'm truely desperate, and no where near the body shop, i'll try something else, but not makes me happy. the texture is perfect! the sent is how you would expect hemp to smell. the packaging could use a bit of work. i've made so many people at work become addicted to this product, even a middle aged biker man.
I love this product, it's my favourite of all the various hand creams I've tried. I use it just before bed and even after I wash my hands a few times the next day, they still feel soft and moisturised. I've got incredibly dry hands and this sinks in really well without leaving my hands greasy. I think the smell is probably a love it or hate it sort of thing, because I absolutely love it. Smells very earthy and natural, which is a bonus for me. Great product and I'll definitely be buying again.
