Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best hand treatment for new moms! After washing bottles and my hands constantly, I tried everything from body butters, creams, oils, Shea butter, etc. I have even tried layering them. Then I found a this hand salve amongst my products. Omg! I take it w me everywhere I go: kitchen, to bed... lol - absolutely fell in love. Only thing that satisfies my skins after bleach, sanitizer and soap! Non greasy, very emollient.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HOLY GRAIL I never write reviews but had to for this product. I've searched years for a decent hand lotion. I wash my hands often and in the winters they get so dry they crack and bleed. I've tried EVERYTHING, nothing has ever worked. This product is MIRACLE WORKER. My skin has never been so soft and I don't even reapply. In fact I use it once every few days and my skin is baby smooth.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from What’s the big deal? Disappointing. Nothing remarkable about this lotion. Doesn’t smell good. Won’t order again. My dry hands don’t feel or look any better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light—easily absorbed How do you say that Kiehl’s hand lotion as a Christmas present from my daughter. I’ve tried lots of hand lotions and salves, but this is different. It doesn’t take much, it absorbs quickly and is light. No overwhelming scent, too. I signed up for the auto refill after using this for 2 weeks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is honestly one of the best hand creams I have ever used. It is a rich moisturizing salve (richer than a standard cream) that is imbued with avocado (to soften), eucalyptus (to refresh and purify - and it smells GREAT), and sesame (to soften) oils, which IMHO make the difference between this and other less efficacious creams. The base is comprised of glycerin, which is a natural, go-to humectant that protects the skin from external drying agents (wind, etc) and acts like "hand glove." No, none of the ingredients by themselves are proprietary (hey, I COOK with sesame oil and eat my body weight X 10 in avocados on a month basis) but it is te combination and the ratio that makes this work like nothing else. I can probably buy stock in hand creams as I have literally tried EVERY brand, including L'occitane, Neutrogena, Curel, Nivea, Vaseline, Fresh, even Trader Joe's. This is one of the best and worth every cent. I put it on at night and woke up to super soft hands for the first time in a very long time. The East Coast winers can wreak absolute HAVOC on your hands, and mine certainly were not immune. A little dollop of this miracle salve truly works wonders and I have now found my go-to!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am in LOVE with this product. My hands have been getting very dry from washing it so much. This has helped my dry skin. I put this on throughout the day to make sure my skin stays hydrated. I would recommend this product! Kiehl’S Ultimate Strength Hand Salve

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable stable! A colleague introduced me to this product a few years ago, when I was complaining about dry and cracked hands. I have been using it ever since, especially in the winter. It dissolves quickly, doesn't leave a greasy film and is not scented, which is rare these days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is ideal for anyone who works with their hands a lot or in the elements! I used to handle a lot of paper and it dried out my hands terribly. I tried this product and now it is my go to hand lotion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love love Kiehls Products!! This hand cream is pretty amazing. Living in the desert this has been very useful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Leaves hands soft and silky smooth With the pandemic, I've been washing my hands at least 2-3 times more daily than usual. I have dry skin normally, this extra washing has made it worse. This salve is terrific. It's easy to apply, little goes a long way, and it lasts forever. If you just rinse off your hands with hot water or use hand sanitizer, you dont even have to reapply. It forms a literal glove of moisturizer on hands. You can feel it protecting & moisturizing them. The scent is not all that appealing to me, wish it were available in different scents. That's the only complaint I have. Otherwise its 5 stars for moisturizing dry skin that lasts all day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is one of the few hand moisturizers that doesn’t leave me feeling sticky. It’s long lasting, sinks deep in, and has a mature scent. I usually use this in the winter time and or when I’ve been washing my hands often.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from With the frequent hand washing and the seasonal air change, I needed a good quality hand lotion. Kiehls Ultimate Strength Hand Salve 38 delivers. It has a thick, creamy consistency that melts instantly without leaving hands feeling greasy. I'm not too keen on the scent but it's an effective product and the scent fades.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A healthcare workers life saver since we constantly wash our hands. Doesn’t have a bad scent. Easy to carry in pocket to apply after hand wash to prevent dry cracks. Great for pandemics!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft hands I love this product because it keep my hands moisturizer all the time, specially now that we have to use so many different things to keep our hands clean this product will keep you moisturize and soft hands.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So I used this on my dry hands and it did worked nicely I only used it for two days now and I like it , it smell nice like any hand cream and the only reason why i am not giving it 5 because i still have little bite of dry hands and I only use it for short time .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like None Other I really love this product. I have severely dry and chapped hands in the winter to the point that they bleed. This salve leaves my hands soft and has limited the dryness so much. I have tried other hand lotions in the winter but nothing compares to this one!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for moisturizing tough skin! Give it a few days, and you’ll love how this product moisturizes and locks in the moisture for rough patches of skin! I use it on my hands since I work in healthcare and am constantly washing them, and this has brought so much relief to the my hands & improved the smoothness of them too. I also use them for my feet, and it seems to reduce the wrinkles, toughness, and callouses since I dance. To me, the product doesn’t ~feel~ super moisturizing like body butters do, it feels almost waxy, but it sure works well! Personally, I like the slight medicinal smell of the salve, which only lasts for a few minutes though. I find it soothing, so wished the scent lasted longer! Bough a full size for $12 during black friday.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This is thick, moisturizing and slightly oily on skin but won’t leave oil on stuff. Has a herby, raw scent. It truly does moisturize your hands! I wish it was lighter though, feels heavy/thicj.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As good as it gets, trust and use all day! I have pretty dry hands, from working out, dry CA weather, and always washing hands, ESP now! The hand salve smells great, lasts a long time, even after a few washes! The white glove feel is just awesome, and there's NO oily feeling at all. GOOD STUFF!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too sticky Bought this due to good reviews on internet. The price dropped to 50% off plus extra 25% discount 1day later after placed the order through internet. The customer Service was not willing to do price adjustment. Doesn’t like the sticky touch after application.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft hands With so much hand washing at this time, this cream is invaluable. Might be better if it was not categorized as Men’s.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SKIN DRYNESS SOLVED I am a repeat buyer of this product for myself and for my girlfriend as well (she loves the coriander). We couldn’t be happier with this product as it gets us through the really dry CA winters! I’ll put it on before bed and I’ll wake up with moisturized hands. Clean scent with the original but you can’t go wrong with the scented ones too. I use this everyday during the fall/winter and every few days during the rest of the year and a 5oz tune will last me a year. I’ll be buying this again. And again. And again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I keep this in my bedside table drawer and slather it on right before bed. I also use on my elbows and knees! Leaves my hands (that are prone to drying out from constant sanitizer use) hydrated and happy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best hand cream ever! I have used this product for years and strongly recommend it anyone with dry hands. It is easily absorbed and not oily, but somehow it lasts through multiple hand washings. It has saved my hands from cracking even during the winter. For an e tra boost in winter I’ll use cotton gloves at night. My hands feel great in the morning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I was using Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream until I was introduced to this one. It is not greasy at all and has an extremely pleasant smell. I am just hoping they make a huge bottle in this!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just bought this about 2-3 weeks ago and I have been using it pretty much everyday and have been really liking it. It is super thick, but sinks into skin perfectly and doesn’t make your hands feel greasy. The smell of this one is nice, it’s kind of a citrus/mint scent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the size. Great for active hands because it does not get greasy but hydrates very well. It smells great. This is not my first bottle. Highly highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great hand lotion! A necessity for winter when your hands dry out. Thick and creamy, but not sticky.
