I had high hopes for this lotion because of the high ratings when I got it. I had previously tried the Stress Relief Moisturizing Lotion, but I figured this one might be more moisturizing per the reviews and the word "daily" suggested it would only need to be applied once a day.

I found it to be more of a dry-touch lotion sooner than the Stress Relief (a minor plus since the Stress Relief was okay in this area), but it was equally non-moisturizing. I wash my hands many times in a day, and this just didn't cut it unless I used it every single time I washed my hands. It also wasn't strong enough to soothe my dry legs after shaving (which are only washed once a day, unlike my hands).

There are certainly better moisturizers out there, and this may be enough to convince me to return to my beloved Dove Night Lotion (not the hand cream but the night lotion) that was truly a once-a-day product.

UPDATE: Someone gave me a 1oz bottle of this so I gave it another trial. It felt gross on my hands, like a gunky coating, no matter how little I used, and after handwashing, its moisture powers were gone. :( Lousy stuff! continued >>
