This saved my chapped winter dry hands, I received it in a gift set for Christmas, and this product in the set was my favorite. It is heavy, but absorbs quickly and has a light aloe smell, this is not an added fragrance, just from the ingredients. I enjoy this product, and will be buying it every winter when my hands are in winter peril.

This is my absolute favorite hand cream. It smells like eucalyptus and doesn’t leave your hands feeling sticky or greasy like many other creams. The size of the container is great for a small purse, and I actually think the cream works!

Really enjoy the consistency and and results from this product.  I have tried a lot of hand creams as I am constantly washing and carrying wet laundry so my hands are dry all the time.  This product sinks in quickly and makes your hands soft immediately!  Still working on getting rid of the calluses permanently, but we're getting there.  Only complaint is the smell.  Very medicinal.

This hand salve is absolutely the best. I have been using this for about a month now and I can feel the difference it makes on my hands! I hate the feeling of greasy lotioned hands but normally have to put up with it because I have dry hands. With this, I no longer have to worry about the residue that most hand creams leave. This product gets absorbed quickly and so my hands are left feeling soft, yet not greasy. It's incredible!

Very hydrating hand cream! This is one of the best hand creams I’ve ever tried. I always keep it in my purse because at work, I constantly wash my hands which makes it really dry. And this one is a life saver!

The lotion is pretty good. My hand feels soft after and doesn’t feel sticky like other lotions. I also put this on my foot, the dryness seems to have improved. My feet tends to be ashy lol. I would recommend

This has saved my hands!  My hands were exceptionally dry this winter due to extra hand washing, psoriasis, and well... it was winter.  I used this every morning and night, and my hands are supple, not cracking, peeling or hurting.  It is the best, and I will always have it on hand.  I still use in the morning before I leave the house and right before bed.  It only feels a bit greasy for about 15-30 seconds, and I really lube my hands up.  Maybe if your hands are not very dry, it would feel greasy longer.  But for very dry hands, this is the best.

I bought several of these for stocking stuffers for the men in my family!!! But I decided to try it as well!!! This was before the men's line came out!! This salve is wonderful!! Perfect for dry or cracked skin from overworked or in my case....often washed hands!!! I always keep this available when my hands need that extra boost of moisturizing and protection!

Best hand cream I have found. It is expensive but it makes a difference. I wash my hands many, many times a day at the hospital and this really helps prevent dryness and cracks. You can see the significant improvement in dry, cracked, damaged skin in a couple days.

I have a bottle at home, a bottle in the office, and the travel size for whenever I need on-the-go. This is the one product I buy from Kiehl’s again and again because it works for my super dry hands. The formula is thick and rich, and delivers a ton of moisture to your hands and under your skin without a long-lasting greasy feeling.
