My Favorite Hand Cream

I have very sensitive, dry skin. In the winter it cracks and most lotions irritate my skin, instead of heal them.This is the only moisturizer that works for me (and I’ve tried them all). It’s the only thing that will take a dry, red patch of skin and heal it completely within a few days. I apply a liberal amount several times a day and let my skin absorb it without rubbing it in.This stuff is pretty thick and has a earthy smell suitable for both men and women. It comes in a metal tube that dispenses easily. It leaves my hands silky, and not sticky.I prefer this size to keep at home and the smaller size (The Body Shop Hemp Hand Protector Small, 1.0-Fluid Ounce) to carry around in my bag.It’s vegetarian, fair trade, and against animal testing. It’s a bit pricey, but well worth it.I recommend this product.

Love this hand cream!

It can be a bit greasy but it gets the job done. This is one of the best hand creams out there for dry winter skin. It heals cracking skin and I really like the hemp scent. It’s a bit strong smell wise but I really like it.

Hemp Hand Lotion

This is a wonderful product for anyone seeking relief from extra dry skin without irritating use of fragrances for sensitive skin. Will definitely purchase this product in the future. I LOVE it!

This really does the job when winter comes and it’s dry and cold outside. If you work with cardboard, files, paper, boxes, etc. or outdoors, it will maintain your skin integrity, moisturizing and protecting. If you use too much it may feel a little greasy, but use a little less and it should be good to go.This is also helpful for dry cuticles. I use it at least once or twice a day, especially before bedtime.Scent is herbal/grassy and not perfumey – which is great. I dislike and have intolerance to artificial perfumes and scents. I can tolerate this scent with no problems.Men can use this and not feel girly.Packaging – well, they don’t like the plastic too much, so this is probably a recycled metal and so better for the environment than all the plastic. Twist the cap on straight and it will keep the product inside. Don’t bend the tube, as it will probably create a crack and the product will come out.

I love this stuff!

I first bought this for my husband, but I decided to try it on my hands (and feet). It is really a great moisturizer. I’ll continue to buy it.

Earthy Goodness

This is fantastic if you have dry skin. If you don’t mind an earthy scent, this stuff is perfect. You only need a little of it to go along way as well so don’t be too intimidated by the price. (This is also a good way to get a guy to use lotion if he’s stubborn about it.)

Works incredibly well

I got this for my daughter after she had a case of chapped hands, and on the advice of a nurse who was buying some at the time, also got some for my dad. My dad’s hands tend to be very dry and the skin on his fingertips cracks frequently. In a week of using this, he noticed a marked difference, including those cracks healing instead of getting worse. It’s a thick cream that also provides a bit of a barrier.His only complaint was the scent. All it says on the tubes is fragrance, but that fragrance smells a lot like patchouli to me. A very earthy kind of scent. However, the scent isn’t off-putting enough for him not to use it, and his hands are in much better shape.My daughter’s hands also healed quickly, and she puts some on every day to help prevent more chapping during the colder days of winter. I’m glad I took the nurse’s advice.

Help for Hands

If you have dry cracked hands and all the lotions and hand creams you’ve tried don’t help, try this. It is that good.

Good, not great!

It is very moisturizing, but the smell is intense and not great. Also, I don’t find it to be more effective than other products.
