I’ve been with Aveda for 2 years now. I never knew about this product until I started working at my Aveda Salon. And oh my god this is amazing! I use this when I’m done washing my client’s hair or whenever I am feeling dry. This is the type of product that doesn’t dry your skin out to where you have to continually use is throughout the day. It’s very moisturizing and enriched with vitamins. It has a very citrusy aroma. The best this about this product is that it’s naturally derived from plants.

This is an absolute must have for the winter months! My handed get so dry because I’m constantly washing there at work. My hands will crack and start bleeding if I don’t keep them moisturized during winter. This is the ONLY hand lotion I have found that does a good job moisturizing, healing my dry cracked hands and doesn’t burn when I put it on! I love this product and seriously will never buy another hand cream.

I've worked at an Aveda salon for little over a year now and I have to admit when I first started I did really understand all of the hype about the brand.  Hand relief was one of the first Aveda purchases I made and I quickly learned what all the hype was about.  I have very dry skin and after trying Hand Relief I became obsessed!  It's so moisturizing and the scent is light and fresh.  My daughter has eczema so finding a lotion that doesn't flare up her skin is challenging and Aveda products work wonders for her skin.  The price is a little high but the product is worth every penny.  I'll always be an Aveda girl... I'm hooked now for sure!

I worked in Aveda spas, salons and even the stores because I really love and believe in this company and their products. I started using Hand Relief 20+ years ago and do this day it is still hands down (see what i did there?) the best hand cream ever. 

The scent is wonderful without being over powering. The cream is thick and rich but blends in well. It does a great job at hydrating skin without being greasy. It goes on well and stays on, even after washing your hands the moisturizing power of this cream lingers in the skin.

THIS STUFF IS AMAZING. It is super thick but it leaves my hands feeling so moisturized. The best thing about aveda products is that they smell amazing and this certainly does. I definitely recommend it. The travel size is great to toss in your purse.

Really nice product! Im a cosmetologist and shampoos are a constant activity at the salon. My hands tend to feel dry if I don’t keep them moisturized! I used to keep a bottle of this stuff in my station and it left my hands so soft and not cracking! Love

This is the best hand lotion I e ever used. I type all day and my hands are typically sore - this helps to alleviate the pain. This also keeps my skin feeling soft and smooth and has a nice light scent to it.

I just graduated from the Aveda Institute for Cosmetology and a lot of their products are amazing. I LOVE the Hand Relief and the Foot Relief. The Hand Relief moisturizes like no other! You can wash your hands and your hands and your hands will not feel dry. They come in two different scents and both smell amazing. It says for women but it's really for everyone with dry hands. Tip: great for hand massages!

This is seriously the best hand cream I've ever tried. It's thick enough to moisturize and keep hands soft for hours but sinks into the skin so quickly. It is also great for elbows and knees too, and can we talk about the smell? Who can beat a more natural, amazing product? Definitely worth the splurge!

I absolutely loathe that "after lotion" lotioney feeling. You know the one. Where everything slips out of your hands and leaves grease spots. I was wondering if anyone knows if this does that. Also, how's the scent?
