I have found the best rose scented hand cream, although it is a little greasy for me...maybe it's just my weird skin! I am going through a rose faze right now; even 2 months ago I hated the smell.
Oh man! I cannot stop smelling my hands! I was lucky enough to swap for this, but it is soo expensive...that's too bad because I love it!

very expensive hand cream, but its really hydrating.. smells very nice and relaxing. it is a luxury hand cream but doesnt seem to have anti aging properties. . aveda hand cream is thicker. this one is good for someone who doesnt want greasy hand cream. it doesnt leave fingerprints on things.
formulation has no parabens, sonoma lavender hand cream is better and purer.

This is by far the best hand cream I've found. My hands were extremely dry and rough, like sand paper and just after a week of using, they have become smoother and the skin has become softer on my hands. A little does go a long way, it does not leave it greasy, it absorbs into the skin really nicely and the rose smell is heavenly, not like overly sweet fake rose, but the kind of rose smell that great great grandmothers used to make their linens smell good. I used Ahava hand lotion product but returned it the next day due to the unnatural smell and that 99 percent of the ingredients were synthetic, despite it having a 'great' review from bloggers.

This review is for the rose scent. HG! Perfect hand cream - so moisturizing on my dry hands! Gorgeous scent - pure rose - tons of compliments! Great tube packaging. The only downfall to this near perfect cream is the exorbitant price - $25 for 1.4 oz (40 ml)! If you can afford it, get it! If your budget is tight, pick my 2nd fave for hands - Kiehl's creme de corps, $11 for 2.5 oz.

I have bought the rose hand cream three times. Would purchase more if it weren't so pricey. The cream is soft, thick and smells lovely. It is readily absorbed into the skin unlike other creams which just sit on the surface and don't hydrate properly. Highly recommended.

I love everything about this hand cream besides the high price tag. The scent is subtle yet indulging, the texture is rich & creamy but doesn't make my hands oily, the trick is only use a pea size, its enough of seal in moisture of both hands. Its also fantastic for heels and elbows.

I absolutely love the scent of this product, and I'm not usually even overly keen on the scent of rose. It smells just like Turkish delight! I found it to have excellent moisturising properties, and it sunk in quicly considering how rich and creamy the formulation is. As previously mentioned, a little of this product goes a very long way, so although expensive, the tube is huge and considering how little of the product you need to use, it should last a very long time. Unlike others, I actually really like the metal tube too.

I picked this up as part of a set but even I agree it's quite pricey. I have used a heap of other hand creams though as my hands and especially cuticles have a habit of splitting even in summer. (very painful).
Pros: The scent is just beautiful. A very subtle rose scent just a hint not to powerful. The texture of the product is also really nice, creamy and smooth.
Cons: The price, the price, the price.
Note: I am a bit of a fan of Jurlique and I always see bad reviews, so a point I'd like to make is this. With Jurlique products less is more.
With the hand cream in particular a tiny little dob about the size of a small button will do the trick. Too much and you're hands will be greasier than a bag of hot chips.

LOVE the rose hand cream. I love the scent, I love the texture, I love almost everything about it. It is a really rich cream and a little bit goes a long way. I find that if you use too much your hands will feel greasy & it won't sink in. I use a dab about the size of my pinky nail for both hands which I find ideal. It absorbs quickly & leaves my hands lovey & soft.
I hate the aluminium tube. It is hard to squeeze the product out when it gets low and the aluminium tears/cracks in places where the tube bends frequently. I usually end up with it rolled up like an unsightly toothpaste tube to stop leaks and squeeze out the product. The packaging looks great when it's new but after a couple of months kicking around in your handbag it looks pretty rubbish. Would a plastic tube be so hard?
It's kind of expensive but not too bad in my opinion given how little you use each time. I tried a bunch of hand creams before settling on this one and most ranged between $20-$35. This cream is probably at the upper end of the scale but the price is fine by me for what I get.

This review is for the rose hand cream. It is extremely expensive for a hand cream though I love it and it does a wonderful job.
I have found this to be godsend for my dry undereye area. This has out-performed any eye cream I have tried and plumped up the wrinkles under my eyes overnight. It is my HG eye cream now.
Update 11 Feb 2012: this cream has made my eye lashes grow longer too. What an unexpected bonus.

This is my all time favorite hand cream. I always go back to Jurlique after trying out brands such as Crabtree & Evenlyn, Avene, Neutrogena.
It's the only hand cream to keep my hands nice and soft in the winter time without constantly re-apply. The hand cream is easily absorb without the greasiness while with long lasting affect. I applied this before I go to bed and the next morning my hands are still nice and supply without the dryness. With other brands, my hands would feel dry over the winter night. I think it's to do with the Lavender/Rose essential oil. It's highly moisturising.
The scent is not over powering and just at the right level. So far, I haven't found another good quality hand cream like Jurlique. Love it!

Extremely overrated and overpriced. This hand cream is super greasy without being moisturizing. It does not absorb into the skin and I feel it washing off completely every time I wash my hands. Its greasiness leaves a film over my hands and it feels uncomfortable. The only plus is that the scent is very subtle and pleasant. Thankfully, I received this as a gift because I would never pay that much for such a mediocre hand cream.

Jurlique Lavender Hand Cream -
If only this were less expensive!
It's so emollient and yet so fragrant at the same time. The metal tube makes it hard to get all the cream completely out towards the end.
But when I think of how often I apply hand cream to my really dry hands during the day, I can't justify making this my everyday, go-to hand cream. (It's costly even in Australia!)
Thankfully, there are more inexpensive options that really seem to work on dry hands. Jurlique's option is by way of being an occasional treat.
(Yes yes, I know the whole organic argument out there but 'organic-schmorganic', Jurlique) - and while my heart says "yes" my Alan Greenspan side usually vetoes paying the inflated price, no matter how much I may like the product.

Best handcreme ever ! I would buy it again if it were not so expensive. I only tried the rose handcreme and like it a lot esp. good if you like rose scents.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Dry, Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Black
the lavender smells very nice, not too medicinal like some lavender creams out there. the cream sinks in quickly and is not greasy at all. while it is good that i don't leave marks on my computers or books, i have to reapply often. my hands are very dry and i need moisturizer that stays longer. i ended up rubbing balm on my hands after applying this cream and it seemed to help seal in the moisture!

I have hands that dry out and wrinkle easily. This hand cream is pretty expensive, but smells and feels divine. however, it doesn't do a good job of keeping my hands moisturized enough. L'occitane's works better, but doesn't smell as good. my hg though, is TBS's aloe body balm. Its moisturizing and protective, and my hands look much better, if only it came in a tube like these.

I first tried the rose hand cream out at the airport, and I eventually arrived at my destination with a big tube of it. I now use it before going to bed. It's one of the best hand cream I've used. A little of it will keep your hands velvety soft and moisturized. The scent is very pleasant, and I like the packaging (I prefer this to plastic). If I go on feeling this way till the end of my big tube, I will repurchase.

I don't understand why this product is so popular. The scent is fine and the packing looks nice. But it does not provide enough moisture at all. Can use it again, again and again and my hands are still dry. It is too costly compared to what it does.

I actually use this as a face cream. I love it. The scent isn't too over powering for my facial skin and I guess I'm not really that sensitive, as I can use body lotion and hand creams on my facial skin without breakouts or any irriation. I like this as a hand cream too, but it makes a lovely, thick, luxurious facial cream too.

I have the lavender one, and find the scent very pleasant & not overpowering. I agree with all the reviewers who said that the cream sinks quickly into the skin - makes it good for the tropical, very humid climate I live in now. It's definitely even less sticky than my Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream, & I'd thought that was good! I use hand cream just when the skin on my hands feels a bit tightness, not intense dryness, so I can't say how well this would work for very dry hands or in very dry climates. But if your hands are just a bit dry, or you're looking for a light hand cream, this is a good bet. I plan to compare the price per unit with that of Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream to know whether I'd fork out for this (the one I have was a gift). I wish there was a "maybe" option - I might repurchase if I feel the scent, feel & amount of this product was worth a little extravagance. I've barely started my 4 oz tube of this stuff and I don't use it every day so I don't know how long it will last. If it lasts me a year or more, I might be willing to pay a bit more, and keep my Neutrogena for travel.
