The best hand moisturizer IMO. It was originally recommended to me by my dermatologist. It forms almost like a moisture glove around your hand and starts working immediately. It has a slight glycerine-y smell and seems a little oily but it is still the best from what I've tried.
the four must haves:
- vaseline petroleum jelly
- johnson and johnson baby oil and baby powder
- glysomed hand cream - i prefer the original.
sure, it's thick and seemingly oily but it works amazing, is ultra sensitive for skin, and generally doesnt have a smell. It might seem pricey at first - $13.99 CAN for a 250ml bottle, but this stuff lasts forever. I've had my tube for almost a year and i still have a quarter left. Although i dont recommend this as a general body lotion - just for those dry hands, elbows, knees, and heels.
Super moisturizing, non greasy, sinks right it. Glad I finally found it at rite-aid! Hands down the absolute best!Also, green tube lightly scented, white tube non scented.
What a great moisturizer! This goes on thick and sinks in fast. Lotion is an obsession that I have had since I was little. I hate dry skin. I don't like greasy lotion. This keeps skin moist and soft and it's not greasy. It smells really nice, kinda floral, and the scent fades so it's not going to mix with your perfume. I have no idea what it costs because I was fortunate to swap for it. I also use glysolid which is very similar and you can get it easily here in the US.
I have been using this cream on my hands and feet for years. I have it in both the tube and tub containers, and I really like the smell - it reminds me of sweetpea flowers. If you slather it on (as I always do to help my skin deal with the cold Canadian winters) it can take a while to soak in, but if you use it sparingly you would have no problem using it during the day. I get excema on my hands, and aside from my prescription cream, this is the only other cream that has ever soothed my hands.
Love love it! For some strange reason I have an obsession with buying hand creams. My hands seem to constantly be dry and rough cuticles...This is something I always go back to. I don't know why I even buy others. I like the scented version that has a clean chamomille scent. Very light scent, not too overpowering. It has glycerine in it--so it is very smooth and non-greasy. Just a dab is needed!
A must for anyone with rough/dry skin. It's magic. It's unfraganced and plain, and comes in plain green packaging, and it works. A little bit goes a long way to soothe rough and dry skin.
This is a gem of a product to carry in your purse. Contains glycerine, silicone and camomile. I have the unscented version in the tube and I've used it EVERYWHERE, my hands, elbows, and yes, even dry areas on my face. It's soooo gentle, I've even used a bit on my lips when I didn't have lipbalm with me. And it's ridiculously cheap! It's heavier than a regular lotion, but not as greasy as something like Neutrogena's Norwegian Hand formula. You just need a tiny bit, so a tube will last forever. I also saw on their website (www.glysomed.com) that they have a body lotion, but I haven't seen it in my local drugstore. I'd love to try that, too.
This is a tube of wonders: it smoothed and softened my winterized, garden-beaten, couldn't-wear-gloves-and-do-masonry hands and took ten bad years off their appearance to boot. Add no testing on animals, an inoffensive faint scent and the appreciative glint in my bed-partner's eye when I put it on my hands right before bed (yup, it's that slippery, but not greasy, so for me backs of hands only during the day) and you have a workhorse hand cream to please the most finicky to the most product-adverse. A drugstore steal at $2.99 for 1.7 ounces, most often with a dollar off coupon glued to the tube.
Wow very surprised with this product actually. I don't know what it was but I just didn't have much faith in it. I am currently on accutane and one of my side effects is extremely dry hands. I usually use vasaline and put socks over it before going to bed, that was going pretty good. But then my mom showed me this stuff and I decided to give it a try and OMG it works wonders! The vasaline is obviously very thick and i could really do much with it if it was on my hands during the day. The glysomed soaked it fairly fast and made my hands have this weird feeling to them lol can't really describe it but it felt like it was like a wall of protection. My hands were very red and polka dotted and that is extremely reduced now :). This product is actually quite cheap and can be bought at many drugstores! You should really give this stuff a try really isnt anything to loose. Hope i helped!
