I guess I have to go against the majority here, but I really can't stand this stuff. Supposedly it's unscented but it's mostly the scent that bothers me, which comes off as a very stinky, plasticky smell. I'm not sure if this works very well, because I had to give it away - I just couldn't stand my hands smelling that bad. But from when I did use it a few times, I didn't notice anything spectacular about it. I am normally a big fan of Philosophy products, but I would definitely not buy this again!

This was really effective on my dry hands. It absorbs really well, and I noticed that my hands were immediately softer. The scent could be better, but nonetheless, it is a really good product.

I've gotten this in several kits and really like it. It's a very intense cream that I like for night-time. No bells and whistles, just a simple, effective night hand cream.

I'm desperately trying to finish this. I bought his for $30 CDN, might have been cheated by that no-good store who charges more. It doesn't contain a fragance, which I thought wouldn't bother me, but it does. It's REALLY thick. great for winter or when my hands are extra dry. It doesn't sink in fast and leaves hand a bit greasy or waxy as people say. But i wear it before bed so it doesn't bother me. I'm not fond of the packaging. I use a spatula to scoop it. It's an alright hand cream, I just wish it had a nicer smell to it and because it doesn't, I won't buy it again. Plus it cost me a bundle.

This is too too heavy for a hand cream. It feels heavier than vaseline! It is very waxy and does not absorb easily.

This fools people because it feels so thick and rich when it goes on. At first I thought I liked it because the texture is so great. But it does absolutely nothing. It sits there like wax. No smell. It is just a nothing goo. If you want something that feels fun to apply but does nothing this is it.

This is absolutely wonderful handcream. A little dab goes a long way. I am quite pleased that it has spf in it. If you are interested in preventing age spots on your hands - give this a try before the problems start. I would say this does a pretty good job reducing age spots alson - I've had a freckle on my hand since birth that is almost invisible after three months using this handcream.

The texture of this is a seriously smooth and velvety thick balm. I didn't find it exfoliated at all and can't see how it could without any little beads in it. It does moisturise your hands but has a clean and slighty waxy smell which I disliked. It also goes on thick with a waxy residue and does not absorb very well.

This makes my hands SO soft when it's on. I have terribly dry hands and this is on the same level as my previous hand cream (the body shop hemp hand cream) and it has a less awful smell lol so I like this.

Does not absorb. Does not exfoliate. Leaves a waxy coating that eventually rubs off in little dirty balls (oh, wait, is *that* the exfoliation?). I don't even like using this on my FEET (where every lotion/cream I don't like eventually gets applied so I can use it up). I am going to use this every day so I can use it up, and hate every day of my life while doing so.
