I'd give this 4.5 if I could. Most importantly, it absorbs quickly and moisturizes my hands during the dry winter months. If I put it on before bedtime, my hands still feel nice, rather than parched, in the morning. Regular use keeps my hands in good enough shape that it even makes lesser hand creams work better. My only complaints are that it is just a tad too greasy for daytime use (for me) and I don't love the earthy scent (although it's not as bad as some hemp products), though it does fade and isn't headache-inducing or anything like that. I love that it's affordable and cruelty free, and the container lets you get pretty much everything out. Overall, it's a great value and I stocked up on backups as I do not want to be without this in the winter. Also, you can get a travel size which I love, since your skin needs extra love when flying.
