Is this what they used to sell as "Unusually Rich-But Not Greasy At all Hand Cream"? I cannot seem to find it anywhere on the web-site.

I have purchased for years the Imperial cuticle Moisturizing cream and I can no longer find it in your stores. Do you have discontinued products for sale?

Is this as effective on feet as it is for hands? Both my hands and feet are cracking with the harsh winter weather. I need something that will be effective for both. Thanks!
Karen C on Jan 27, 2013
Best Answer: i've found kiehl's ultimate strength hand salve to be excellent for all super dry skin areas, including hands, elbows & yes, feet. because my hands get super dry in the winter (i.e., cracking & bleeding), over the years, i've tried multiple cremes & salves, but keep returning to this product of kiehl's. its chief drawback is that it's not sold in a larger package, but c'est la, c'est la.

I am looking for one of your body moisturizer. I don't know the name of it but it's white & very light.
I don't see it on the website. Can you advise? Thanks.
A shopper on Mar 23, 2015
Best Answer: Rosa Arctica lightweight cream is the only cream I'm familar with - it's a face cream, not a body cream, but it is white and very light. I've never tried their hand cream, so I'm no help there. I hope this helps.
