This stuff is awesome. I've used it every night before bed for a year and a half now, and I get grumpy if I run out.
The almond scent isn't my favorite, but it's grown on me.
I love it because it's thick and rich and feels wonderful when you rub it into your knuckles and fingers.
If I'm feeling really decadent, I'll cover my hands in these white cotton gloves I have from TBS and my hands are so, so soft in the morning. I don't do it as often as I should because the gloves make me feel goofy in a Michael Jackson kind of way.
The cream is heavy and sticky at first, but after you rub it in for a while, it gets absorbed really well and makes your hands satiny-smooth. I like the fact that it's an all-natural formula. The smell is, indeed, repulsive, but it does fade quickly.
The scent of this product is even stronger when you first apply it than it is when you open the jar, so if you are turned off by a strong almond smell, this may bother you AT FIRST - But, IMO the scent dissipates quickly and the creme soaks in fast. Natural ingrediants, and soft hands are what you get with this hand creme. (This is my "drugstore" hand cream).
I did not enjoy the scent of this product at all! It's an okay cream, but if the scent is bothersome, I can't tolerate it. Too bad, I might enjoy it otherwise.
This moisturizes nice but I find the scent extremely annoying. After a couple of used I never reached for this again.
Thick an rich hand cream & I love the strong almond scent!
this is a really thick hand cream, perfect for dry spots in the winter. it smells really good too :)
The best way to use this if you want extra moisture is to slather it on, dip your hands in hot parafin wax, and wear gloves to let it soak in. The heat will soften the skin so the cream can better sink in.
smells delish, texture is kinda nice too, but sticky. doesnt wash off so easily, which is good for me cuz i wash my hads a lot.
I am one of those people who adore the fresh almond smell whenever I open up the jar. I like to use it right before I go to sleep, when I can enjoy the scent and let the moisturizer sit on my hands throughout the night. It can be a pain to get the cream out of the jar, though, if you have somewhat long-ish nails and don't like to get the stuff stuck under them.
