This is an excellent hand cream and very affordable. I much prefer it to the Norwegian Concentrated formula and many high end hand creams. I use it in the pump dispenser system and go through 3-4 bottles each winter- my hands are my weak spot skin wise in winter.
The cream is mid-thickness texture and absorbs rapidly. It is lightly scented and non greasy. I like to use it on my arms and shins when I am too lazy to find my body lotion!
I notice that some reviewers find the scent overpowering and I am wondering if the formulation is different. To me it is very lightly scented- I am in Ireland.
The only thing I do not like is that the pump does not extract all the cream at the end- so I have to hack the bottle open to retrieve quite a bit at the bottom of the bottle. The pump is a little crude and quite a bit of cream can shoot out!
This is a hand cream I keep returning to.

I would give this a "10" if I could. It actually does absorb quickly, leaving your hands deeply moisturized and soft without the greasiness you'd expect from a hand cream. A real drugstore gem!

I love the other Neutrogena Norwegian hand cream but the fast absorbing type smells horrible. I can't stand it. Funny, cause the other smells rather good.

You don't need much; I wish I could use it up faster though. Really stinks. It does absorb well, within 2-3 minutes. That said, I think the other type is does a better job of moisturizing and smells so much better. I won't buy this again.

This smells foul - it's hard to describe but I don't like the scent which is too bad, because this hand cream truly is fast absorbing. I'll be sticking to the slower absorbing but unscented Neutrogena hand cream.

Purchased on a whim for dry, chapped hands and it's really a great product at a low price. No sting when applied to hands that are already having problems - my kids like it, too.

Fast absorbing, minimal scent, and leaves a shield over my hands from the elements. I've been using it at night but will start using it for daytime, too, now that I know it isn't a greasy mess.

I do think less is more with this one - if you get too much, you can definately tell!!

Bought it on a whim not having Unscented Concentrated at hand, thought it will suite. Nope, it's worse. The scent is agreeable but I don't like it, feels greasy and stays greasy. With Concentrated Unscented all you feel are your soft hands whereas here you feel the cream itself. Very mediocre and below my expectations

I was looking for a new hand cream in every drugstore brand available where I live and in organic cosmetics all over the place, but nothing could absorb fast enough, which is the most important quality I look for in a hand cream. And then I ran over this and tried it at the spot - it really absorbed quickly, not as fast as I would like, but the fastest I could find. It moisturizes well enough and does not leave an oily residue. I hate the smell though, it's tacky and artificial, which is not the usual case with Neutrogena. But since it's not very strong I cope with it. Minus one lippie for that. Overall it's great and given the price a total bargain. However my HG is still L'Occitane's Shea Butter Hand Cream, but I don't justify the price so much, especially now that I've found this.

Definitely fast absorbing! I think this might be my favorite and I've tried several hand creams/lotions. Fast absorbing is really all I look for in a hand lotion... soo this one's a winner.
