This is a life saver for any midwesterner! I love this stuff and will buy it again, even if I don't have a coupon this time. It doesn't have a strong scent, which is nice but I wish it had a better scent..... The cream has a texture that's thicker than lotion and is like a mixture of vaseline and lotion- it's odd but awesome. While I took the "not sticky" comment at face value, it is sticky for the first few moments after applied, but within minutes your skin is back to normal! It doesn't leave a residue while washing hands, it actually stays on through a few washes which is awesome for the vicious cycle of "drinking water to stay hydrated, then having to pee and washing hand, then applying lotion after washing hands" as we all know it. I have noticed fewer lines in my hands and that they appear more pump and hydrated which is what I was going for!
