i dont like la mer in general. the face cream stings me, the body cream smell is too strong but the hand cream is a hit!. perfect hand cream really. lightly scented, very good texture, the best so far, hydrating and non greasy, just perfect really. except the high price. i dont think it is actually anti aging, but if it does, that is a bonus. the hand lotion is paraben free which is great.

TOO EXPENSIVE. For about the price of 2 Starbuck drinks, buy Cetaphil. It's as moisturizing, smells pleasant and you can buy a new dress or shoes with the money you save. LaMer is the emperor's new clothes, ladies.

one of my splurge purchases but i love it, i have used up a tube and i am now using the gift with purchase 1fl oz size and i will treat myself to another tube maybe around christmas time! i love the smell, it smells luxurious and leaves my hands so silky soft but not greasy or sticky. the smell really lifts me up every time i put it on and who ever borrows this falls in love. the texure is just perfect, not too thick, not too thin, it is one of my favorite hand creams. one tube lasts a while, so it is a good splurge!

Love it! Just like all LM products. This hand cream stays in my handbag year round. I even have my husband using it, just bought him his own. I am only 34 and dont yet have face wrinles or lines but had started to notice that my hands were starting to look older. I was starting to have the creepy looking skin on my hands, probably caused from the fact that I am an anal hand washer and now that we just added a new baby to the house, our 4th child, I am constantly using hand sanitizer, witch is very harsh from the alcohol. So, having always loved LM products and knowing how rich and moisturizing they are, I ordered this with my last LM order. Now, like I said its in my hand bag always, as well as one in the diaper bag, one in the kitchen that I apply everytime I wash my hands and one for hubby. I started using it on his hands to treat his man hand syndrome. You know what I am talking about, all men that have physical jobs have rough callused hands. We own a home installion company for plasma TVs, home theater etc and his hands are constantly inside a sheetrock wall with insulation and other damaging materials. This stuff has worked wonders on his hands! My hands look way younger, but his are a more drastic difference because they were soo rough before. Now I dont mind him rubbing his hand across my face, they no longer feel like sandpaper! I will continue to repurchase this and other LM products.

Along with their lip balm, this is the only La mer product I would not hesitate to re-purchase. I love how my hands feel like silk after using this and never greasy. It could be perhaps a bit more moisturising, but for the way it makes my hands feel alone I would gladly buy it again. Not HG for me - that has to be Origins 'Make a difference' hand treatment. But very close runner up!!

Although I have been transitioning to all natural skin care over the past few years, La Mer is a hard one for me to give up. Although there are no ingredients listed on this cream, I can tell for sure that this product has plenty of liquid parrafin and silicone/dimethicone. It has a nice light aquatic floral citrus scent, and a little goes a long way. It goes on a little chalky (sign of too much dimethicone). Shortly, however, it soaks into the hands and leaves them looking moisturized with a natural and satin finish- almost like my hands look when I am in a tropical climate (I live in an arid area at high altitude)....or maybe how my hands looked 10 years ago. The cost is outlandish, but if it works, it's worth it, especially when your hands might be on display, like for an evening out. I will use this daily for a few weeks and report back :)

This hand cream has a unique sophisticated scent and moisturizes like crazy. Soft milky texture, dries to silky finish pretty fast.

I love everything about this hand cream...except the price. I personally think that $70.00 for a 3.4 fluid ounce tube of hand cream is outrageous.
This hand cream is very nice, though. It is light yet highly emollient. It does not feel heavy or greasy like many other hand creams. I notice that after a few applications my hands are very soft and have a youthful "glow".
The scent of the hand cream is very pleasant, and the scent does linger on my hands for several hours after application. I have received compliments on the scent, and I have had co-workers and friends ask me what I am using when applying this cream to my hands. I have also gotten compliments on the condition of my hands when using this cream.
I would like to say that I will not re-purchase this hand cream due to the cost, but as I am looking at my near empty tube, I am most likely going to be placing a La Mer order soon...

This is a creamy hand treatment from La Mer that I absolutely love!
$70 US or $2,900 NT
The scent of this hand cream is sort of, but not quite like Creme de la Mer. Still, I love both scents. And the scent for this hand cream lasts longer than the face cream too. :D
It is very creamy and feels like a hybrid between a lotion and a cream. On the hands it is not very greasy, although depending on the amount you use, it can get a little greasy as well. However, I must say that it's greasiness is not like L'Occitane's Shea hand creams (another one that I use a lot of, so I compare everything to these two hand creams), which is kind of sticky, but like a smooth film on your hands. You really don't need a lot to coat you hands with, but its texture is rather deceiving and makes people want to squeeze a lot more out than necessary.
I know that some people tend to just slather on the hand cream and expect it to work. For some hand creams this may be fine, but for this one, you need to work it into your skin. Here's how I use it:
1. If I don't want to use too much because it is so expensive, then I just squeeze a little out rub it in until it almost sinks completely in. It will always leave just the thinnest protective layer.
2. If I am pampering myself, I squeeze plenty out of the tube and and massage. The look (or finish, if you will) of the cream will be creamy and velvety at first, but once you continue to rub and work it in, it will become thinner and shiny-greasy looking. Try to get as much to sink in as possible, then go sleep and wake up with beautiful hands. :D
It is pretty moisturizing, as in it is enough for my slightly dry hands. It is not as emollient and moisturizing as, say, L'Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream, but it does a very impressive job given that it is not as greasy as L'Occitane. It also has very impressive lasting power given its texture; it lasts all day until I really scrub at my hands with evil drying liquid detergent-like soap.
The thing I love about La Mer products is that they seem to have a strange healing properties (the moisturizing gel cream seems to be healing my acne scars faster!). Ever since I started using this cream, the cuts and bruises on the back of my hands heal faster, and they never leave a scar. This never happens with my other hand creams and whatnot.
I have been rubbing this into my nails after I took of my gel nails using method 2, and it's been working really well and making my nails more moisturized and flexible. And the combination of this wonderful hand cream with daily massaging is helping my nails grow out at an incredible rate!
Best hand cream I've tried. And I know because I own at least 10 different hand creams, but this remains my holy grail. It is quite a splurge every time I repurchase (I'm on my 3rd tube), so I use it carefully. No, it is not some miracle or ground breaking product that everyone tries to assume it is but it is EXTREMELY good for a hand cream. I am extremely pleased with it overall and will continue to repurchase forever.
Its still my HG hand cream. On average, I repurchase about once a year. I just wanted to add that I have discovered another great way to use this hand cream.
I learned this from reading the nail blog Loodie Loodie Loodie, its for your cuticles and she did it with a differ t cream but it works great with this one! Basically, you squeeze a little more than you would usually need for each finger and spread the cream in the "gap" between nail and skin without rubbing it in, letting the excess fill up that "gap." then you just let it sit there for about 5mins, and you'll be surprised how much of the cream you cuticles have soaked up [or maybe the cream just turns a little clear?]. Then you rub the cream into your cuticles as much as possible. Doing this roughly twice a day has really made my cuticles almost flawless!

As with any La Mer product, try the samples before investing in the final product. I'm not sure this works any better than the average hand treatment, but I always get samples when purchasing other La Mer products. I use a bit before bed, and man does it smell great. Also, the smell lasts for a long time, which is a bonus. It's not too expensive considering you probably will use it as a special treat for your hands, every now and then. I'm not sure I'd rush out and buy the retail product though...

My hands get really dry since I am an avid 'washer'...as they say cleanliness is next to godliness...well while I'm not sure about that....I am sure that my hands are always well tended! :) This being said, I do highly recommend this treatment! My hands always feel nice and soft, which is important when greeting clients all day!

I got a sample of this in a gift from Neimans and really liked it but would not spend the money on a whole tube, I got lucky and scored one for $20 with a buy it now on Ebay. This works really well, it is not greasy and I can wear it during the day without worrying about getting anything oily. It's not a heavy duty cream but I only need that at night during the winter. I know you can find other hand creams out there for less that work just as well but they are few and far between. I carry my tube around with me in my bag and it has lasted me for 6 months and there is probably another months worth left in the tube. Since it did last so long and is the perfect size and package to carry with me I would buy it again and probably even pay full price. I took one star off for the price otherwise it is pretty close to perfect.
Edit: My tube is almost gone and I broke down and bought a new tube. This is the only thing that has been keeping my hands from being dry and cracked. Not having painful cracks on my hands is worth the price.

I've always had extremely dry hands so I'm constantly looking for a moisturizing, non-greasy hand cream to apply before bed. While this hand cream is one of the least non-greasy I've tried, it took weeks of use before seeing reasonable results. I'm about half way through the tube but I don't think I'd buy another due to the price. I bought it mainly to get the Saks gift and because I've never tried La Mer products before. I found another cream, Fresh Sugar Acai Age-Delay Body Cream, that I love and use on my hands. It's still not cheap at $65, but you get twice as much.

i bought this along with the body cream, and they both are the same to me. SOOOOOOOO overpriced and nothing special. For handcream i prefer L'occitane with shea butter...it's far more moisturizing and like 600% cheaper. not worth it. my hands feel or look no different.
I fell for the hype and i should be ashamed of myself!! save your money ladies.

Nothing amazing about this hand cream. It does absorb well without being greasy but it's not rich enough for me. Won't be buying it again as it's not worth the price.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Combination Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
The only reason i give this product 2 lippies is because it does moisturize your hands, thats it, there is nothing special about this hand cream, I personally like Loccitane's shea butter hand cream the best, its cheaper. Thank God I got this free in a Neimans beauty week event, its not worth it. you can buy better handcreams cheaper.

I used the entire bottle up, and by the end my hands were no better than before I started. It has a nice smell and nice texture but that's it.
I've found Nivea hand to be far superior at a FRACTION of the cost.

This is not the best hand treatment in terms of anti-aging. However, I do love the texture and the way my hands temporarily feel when I have this on. So I only use this when I go out at night to have soft hands. During the day, you need one with SPF. When you sleep, you need one that is more intensive.
Age: 44-55 Skin: Normal Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
I got a sample of this from Ebay. IMO it is not worth it. A decent hand lotion but certainly not superior to anything you could get from drugstore. It moisturized well, was not greasy but that was it. Same as others at a better price. Now understand I am a La Mer fan, have used their products for years so I am not against spending the money.

I had some really serious damage on my nails from doing fake nails. It had crackings on it, and some areas turned yellow. For weeks, I was so embarrassed to reach out my hand. Then, my mother got a deluxe gift size of this hand creme, and I thought I should try it to see if it works on nails. After shower, I applied it on my hands, and emphasize on my nails. It works amazingly! The minor cracks were immediately healed. The bigger ones went away on the third day. The discolorations just faded in about a week or so. Give this a try.
