Rated 5 out of 5 by BeTheBestVersionOfURself No more DRY skin
I first used the Kiehl products in boarding school in the East coast. When I returned to the west, I forgot about Kiehl's - out of sight out of mind.
Two years ago, a friend sent me a sampler pack as a thank you gift. I was so excited to be reminded of, and reunited with the Ultimate Hand Salve and the Creme de Corps Body Lotion.
I live in the Rockies - hot & dry in the summer, cold & dry in the winter, and have battled dry skin all my life. Two years ago, I was using the Hand Salve 4-5 times per day; last year it was 3; now I'm down to 2. This is new for me, I spent years trying different lotions, even concocting my own, but nothing lasted more than 1 or 2 hours.
I thought I was doomed with dry, flaky, rough skin. Happily, my friend sent the gift and my extremely dry hands and my very dry limbs are saved!

Leaves hands soft and younger looking. Unscented.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Ivan Works great...Smells not so great
First off this is a great hand cream. It is rich and thick and intensely moisturizing however I just don't understand why Kiehls didn't at least add a little mint scent. The product has no fragrance but it somehow kind of smells like elmers glue... I like putting on hand cream that smells good because it's refreshing and I wish Kiehls would come out with a couple scented versions of this product.
Rated 5 out of 5 by RHOPS Best Hand/Foot creme EVER!
My Mom introduced this product to me last summer...I am a retired hair stylist and even though I no longer do hair, I wash my hands constantly! It's a habit! So, with that, my hands and my fingers especially would be paper dry...at the ends of my fingers around my nails, my skin would crack and be very painful. I have tried everything: petroleum jelly with oils covering my hands with socks...did not work...mayo and avocado manicure...nope...along comes Ultimate Strength Hand Salve, and it is a miracle cream for my hands and nails. It sinks into my skin and is not greasy. It smells amazing and feels very cool and smooth without any greasy feeling. I also use this on the heels of my feet! Wonderful!

This is a fast absorbing hand cream made for the working hands. You'll notice this as a thick, creamy texture and you don't need very much at all. I love the clean smell and how it quickly dissipates to not interfere with my cologne/perfume.
My tip would be wait until Life ride (August) to purchase this product. As all things in life, this isn't a guaranteed thing but in past years there has been a huge sized version of this product for only a few dollars more!
Also, you can open doors and jars after applying this product ;)
Rated 3 out of 5 by Kelli Medicinal smell
This product does work for dry hands. It goes on smoothly and absorbs well. My issues with it are: 1. It has a very medicinal smell that I don't care for, and 2. It's not a very good value.
Rated 3 out of 5 by DGL857 It's okay, not bad but not great either
It's a pretty basic hand moisturizer. It relieves the hands right away, but the effect doesn't seem to last too long. I've used comparable and better lotions and salves. I don't think I'll purchase this again when I use it up.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Bayerischfrau Not My Personal Favorite
I'm not sure how this stuff is supposed to work, but I'm not a fan at all. I feel like it should be put on before putting on work gloves or something. It has an odd texture and doesn't absorb into the skin. It kinda just sits on top of your skin and doesn't moisturize. Not a fan and won't buy it again.
