I bought this a couple of years ago when I started using mostly organic & natural skincare. I do love some of Dr Hauschka's products and wanted to like this hand cream. Unfortunately I found it to be incredibly drying. The scent is quite nice and it leaves no residue, but that does not help much when it really does not moisturize at all. It may contain too much alcohol for my skin, which is very sensitive. I prefer Melvita's ecocert hand creams and Weleda's pomegranate to this one.

I got a sample of this product.
I really did not like the smell of this handcream, waay too herby for me, although I usually like natural products.
The packaging of the sample was very unhandy as well (I wouldn't know if the full size had the same packaging) It got dirty/sticky really fast when I had it in my bag.
And no I don't think it moisturizes my hands very well, at the moment - sure, but after 15 minutes they are all dry again.
Actually it made my hands sting a bit in the beginning when I used the cream, not very nice.
Would def not rephurchase.

I got this hand cream as a gift a few years ago and it is the only one to have ever blown me away. It is also the only hand cream to moisturize so incredibly well while leaving absolutely no residue. I get pretty bad eczema patches on my wrists and knuckles during winter and this is the only cream that makes it completely go away within a few days use. I have no desire to ever look for a different cream for my hands.

The best hand cream I have ever used. It has cleared up the eczema from my hands and I was not expecting this effect at all. It also moisturizes very well, although I use less of the product compared to other hand creams. Definitively recommended for sensitive skin!

Absorbs quickly but gives my hands a dry and tight feeling.
Not the worst hand cream I've ever tried...but definitely not the best.

A very nice hand cream, and I can understand why a lot of flight attendants use it to combat the effects of the air in the cabin. Non greasy, sinks in well and mositurises well. Probably the best hand cream I have used. The price - at £12.95 - is higher than a lot of other hand creams - especially mainstream ones - but, bearing in mind this is a natural product and it does last ages, it is a small price to pay!

I love this product, although it is a little on the expensive side. It sinks in incredibly fast but leaves my hands feeling lovely and soft (and this last winter's given my hands quite a battering - left them very dry indeed). A little goes quite a long way, as with most Dr Hauschka products. The scent is lovely and light, and really very pleasant.
The packaging is okay, but the metal tube might take some getting used to. I use a tube key and wind it down, so I make the most of the tube's contents!

This is a great cream but I think it's very overpriced. Every year the price goes up $1.50 and it seems a bit ridiculous. I've used the cream since around 2001 when you could buy it at Whole Foods for about $15.00. It now retails in the same store for about $30.00. The packaging is terrible and often cracks open. It's ruined the inside of many of my handbags.
That said, the scent is divine and I love the way it feels on my hands. It does not, however, last after washing the hands.

I received a sample of this and I really like it. Lovely, but short lived, scent of geranium and citrus that I found invigorating and fresh. The first feeling was a little greasy but it's absorbed very fast by the skin to a velvety soft feel. It seems to do action on a deeper level instead of just coating the hands with mineral oil like so many hand creams. After a few days of use my hands are noticeably softer even with no product on. I would have rated 5 if it wasn't so expensive.
Pros: Softens hands not only superficially
No mineral oil
Cons: The price
Steamcream is better for my hands, and cheaper. If you need a tube on the go check out L'occitane and their Shea hand cream.

I love all the scents in DH products, this is one of them. The rose scent is very uplifting and soothing, this cream is heavenly, quite nourishing, but re-application is needed for dry skin type or in extremely dry weather. Expensive but worth the price, I would repurchase this again just for the scent alone!
