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.
This is a great cream for dry hands especially in the winter. I live in Minnesota and had flaky hands all winter until I found this a few years ago. I have found nothing that works as well. It also does not leave your hands feeling greasy which is really nice. I take 1 lippie away for the smell, as others have noted. Some people can't stand it. It does not bother me, but couldn't they make it more neutral?
I wrote a really long review to this and then my computer screwed up.. so here we go again...
I must be the only person for whom this cream didnt work. I actually really love this cream.. i love the smell, the texture.. the packaging. IT soaks in fast with no greasiness. However it just does nothing for my hands. It doesn't moisturise them or protect them.
I work in childcare so i am constantly washing my hands with strong soaps, wearing vinyl gloves and using strong antibacterial gels. I always have dry flaky patches on my hands and this cream hasn't done anything to alleviate them. Which is sad.. i really really wanted this cream to work for me!!!
I love this stuff!! I don't know how my hands survived Wisconsin winters before I found this! The scent is somewhat strong, but I sort of like it. I noticed some people thought it was greasy, but I never thought that. It takes a second to absorb in, but when it does it's worth it!
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this product! I do not leave the house without a tube of this in my purse! The smaller size is perfect for shoving in your purse, school or work bag. I have yet to find another product that moisturizes my hands and cuticles like this! Very soothing, moisturizing and healing. I cannot tell you how many of my friends I have turned on to this product! My boyfriend used to bartend, and his hands were so cracked and dried - especially in the winter. He became so desperate to heal his hands that he was actually using Neosporin as a hand cream. I gave him a tube of this to keep at work, and his hands have healed completely and are now super soft. The scent is earthy and woodsy. It reminds me of incense. I personally love the scent, but if you are into very "girlie" floral scents, you may not care for it.
For very dry hand skin, it is extremely moisturizing! Great product, but I do not like the scent of it. Overall a nice cream!
This has a thick, nice greamy texture. It's great for night, and I mainly wear cotton gloves over this. Really moisturizes, without a weird film on the hands, seems to sink in well. I like the packaging, probably because I don't have to take it with me. It doesn't get battered by my bedside so the aluminum tube is fine.
The only thing actually wrong with this product is the smell. Don't get me wrong, I like it. It's just so overwhelming. My hubby doesn't like it one bit. The most awfull thing about it is that I can't seem to get the perfume washed of. It's left on the gloves and it even spreads to other clothes that are in the wash at the same time, yuck!
But still, just because it's such a good moisturizer, I will probably be buying this one every once in a while.
