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.

I have been using this hand cream for several years. I am a nurse and wash my hands all day long. I use this cream before going to work and when I come home.

I'm pretty picky when it comes to lotions. I also work in a hospital and am constantly washing my hands which can majorly dry out my skin. I prefer a lotion that's quick absorbent, non-scented and non-greasy. This salve is pretty moisturizing and longer lasting than your basic moisturizer. The texture is definitely salve-like meaning on the thicker side and there is a slight medicinal scent to it. I think the description is accurate in that it provides a barrier because sometimes when I wash my hands I can feel the residue of the lotion still there. I've used up the entire bottle but do not plan on repurchasing, just not for me.

I just ordered a 5oz tube of this stuff after getting a sample of it. My hands are always dry and flaky, even in the summer. Because of my job I wash my hands roughly about 15 times at work which doesn't help the situation. Never has a hand lotion kept my hands incredibly soft after those 15 hand washes. I'm still pretty shocked at how good it is and it's not greasy one bit!
Rated 5 out of 5 by cada1979 Best cream ever
As a nurse I'm constantly washing my hands and not only are they always dry and cracked they are very sensitive and burn if certain lotions/creams are applied. I happened to pass by a Kiehl's while in the mall and decided to go in. I purchased Ultimate Strength Hand Salve and LOVE it, it's seriously the best cream I've ever used. I have not seen my hands not dry in a very long time, I just wish I'd found it sooner and not have waisted money on all other lotions/creams that never worked. I will never use another hand cream!
Rated 1 out of 5 by Monad Doesn't work well and has parabens to boot.
I cannot believe that in this day and age, that anyone would still put parabens in a product. On top of that, this product did not keep my hands moisturized any better than any other drugstore brand I've used. It might have been less effective. I received this for a present, and I'm really glad I didn't spend my own money on it. Terrible.
