Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rarely leave reviews but wow this was a lifesaver! I went on a winter trip to Europe recently and couldn't control the the radiator in our room-share so my skin was super dry. My hands were rough to the point that my husband teased me for having calluses. I made a conscious effort to use this hand salve all the time and by the time we left a week later, my hands were smooth as butter. I was so impressed I promised myself I would buy the full size version when I got back to the states. Note: the big thing is using it consistently. I think that really saved my hands. But also, the hand salve doesn’t smell “pleasant” if that’s something you require in a hand product. It smells almost medicinal. I don’t really care but it might matter to other people.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Miracle in a bottle I had never heard of Kiehl's until last Christmas when one of my students got me this hand salve as a Christmas present. It was the best boughten Christmas present a student has ever given me. I get really dry skin in the winter. My knuckles always crack open and until I found this little miracle in a bottle there was no way to cure my cracked and broken open knuckles until the winter ended. This miracle hand salve cleared up my completely cracked open knuckles in just a few days, and now I use this to prevent my knuckles from splitting open. I would recommend this to anyone who gets dry, rough, or cracked skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Handcream! The hand salve is nothing short of amazing! I have tried so many different creams that promised to help with super dry hands and eczema, but nothing compares to this Hand Salve. I have recommended it to so many people! I just have mild eczema and only needed to occasionally use a medicated cream, but my fingers were always dry and sort of flaky. Now they are always soft. I noticed the change after just a few days of use. It has a nice mild scent that is not overpowering and the smell doesn't last too long. This creams also absorbs very quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from seriously the best lotion! Saying this lotion is AMAZING is a true understatement. My hands were dry and cracked, to the point of bleeding due to the rough weather winter along with constant hand washing. I love Kiehls, so I picked this baby up in hopes of relief. All other lotions I had been using didn't really give me much results - but after using the lotion throughout the day, I was seeing nourishing hands again pretty quickly. By the end of the second day my hands were pretty close to back to being normal and moisturized. At the end of the third day, my hand are silky smooth! Get this lotion now! You won't regret it!!! There is a *slight* bit of greasiness at the very beginning while the lotion is being applied, but it's quickly absorbed and goes away. I absolutely HATE any slight bit of residual greasiness with lotion, but this didn't bother me where it went away quickly **I did NOT receive a free sample/trial of this product even though it says I did**

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cold weather friend My husband and I both use the Ultimate Strength Hand Salve especially when the seasons change and our skin gets dry and starts to crack and split (I know, sounds awful!) - but if we faithfully use the cream, we can avoid nasty cracks and having to use Band Aids - plus it just feels great and nourishing. We carry the smaller size tube when we travel on planes (frequently) to replenish dry skin - it is a mood booster when we are tired.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST HAND CREAM!! I have serve dry skin on the back of my hands. Every winter my skin gets so cracked that it starts to bleed. I have gotten prescribed different creams but nothing has worked like Kiehl's Hand Salve. If you put this on at night, you will wake up and feel the difference. I recommend this product to ANYONE. It works like a dream.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST stuff EVER As a 2nd grade teacher, I wash my hands all day long and the soap the school provides is super drying. This hand cream is a lifesaver I feel relief the instant I apply. However, it doesn't leave your hands feeling greasy. Best stuff ever I swear !!!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I now smell like my grandma This hand cream is adequate but it smells like Tiger Balm (that super mentholated salve people use when they have pain or congestion). I had meant to keep it at my desk at work but will instead be only taking it to go skiing, where it is more socially acceptable to smell like my grandma.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cannot believe how good it is! I got this hand cream as a sample when I last bought my Ultra Facial Cream and after using it ONCE overnight my hands look completely different! I have dry skin and I'm basically a compulsive hand washer too and this has made my hands look so much YOUNGER and so much SMOOTHER! Surely this must be what all the nurses use?! Miracle worker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A revelation This hand cream is a revelation. My hands look young and supple again. So impressed I bought it for my Mum. She loves it too.
Date published: 2019-07-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful for sensitive skin. I keep coming back for this. Having sensitive skin makes it difficult to find products that work and work well, consistently. This hand cream is something I rely on -and I have for years and years. It is my go-to gift for family & friends- lots of praise! There should be a better way to dispense the product from the tube when over half is gone- there is a lot of hand cream that simply won't dispense without User Intervention. I find myself cutting the end off and storing it in a plastic bag to prevent drying out; the tube doesn't respond to "rolling out" and its too thick to tap out. Perhaps improvement of the tube/delivery method is needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Use this lotion for very dry hands I live in Colorado so it is very dry. I tried several different lotions because I needed something for sensitive skin as well as a moisturizer. I tend to break out in a rash with certain kinds of lotions (I have never pinned down the ingredients that make me break out). This lotion is great for this dry weather and for my sensitive skin. I have been living in CO for 5 years and have been using this lotion for almost that entire time and will continue to buy it. It's expensive but worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MY FAVOURITE HAND CREAM I have been using this product for three years, and despite its price, it is 100% worth it. My hands are always extremely dry and exam-prone, so Ive tried almost every other cream out there, but nothing can compare to this one. I use it once or twice a day, and my skin is very soft an moisturised.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally a hand cream that WORKS!! I've been using this now for about 2 weeks and i can say that it has transformed my hands. I work in a pharmacy so my hands are constantly dry from the washing and handling prescriptions. I have tried so many hand creams and this is the best so far. I apply it last thing at night and before i go out to work and my hands look lovely. I will never buy another hand cream. Found my HG.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Hand Cream EVER I am a "hands-on" person who suffers terribly from dry, cracked hands...mostly because I hate wearing rubber/vinyl gloves while working. I have tried 100s of hand and skin creams and this is by far the best ever hand cream. It has a fast acting moisturizer, healing effect, barrier cream and is quickly absorbed. I use it nightly and continue to be amazed at how quickly it "heals". My wish is that it came in lavender fragrance.
Date published: 2019-02-20
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hand Salve I wouldn't be without this hand salve. It is simply the best on the market. I use it every day at night and it keeps my hands in tip top condition. I am over 65 and often have comments like "how do you keep your hands so wonderful"; I have no wrinkly skin on my hands yet!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This has restored my infamously (truly) dry hands! So, this was the first Kiehl's product I ever used! And I didn't even buy it for myself! In the winter, my hands get SO. DRY. I don't know why. My face is fairly oily, so maybe there's no moisture left over for my hands. I also don't wear gloves, so that could be it. Anyways, my knuckles get so dry that it often grosses people out. Like colleagues and friends will stop half way through conversations to chastise me for dry hands when they notice them. Friends I haven't seen in a while will grab my hands to see if I'm moisturizing. It's a thing. Anyways, a friend bought me this hand lotion, and let me tell you, it is the most restoring, rejuvenating, moisture locking, magic moisturizer you will find out there. I have bottles everywhere. In my bathroom, in my living room, at my office. I carry this thing around to meetings and apply it in the middle of meetings. It's great. Highly recommend.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Smells nice, but doesn't work. I bought this hand cream hoping it would work, I looked on a couple of different websites and saw it was highly recommended so thought I'd give it a try. After buying it I used it for about a week and my hands got worse. I don't have particularly bad hands but before I was using a £3 Superdrug hand cream and since I swapped it out for this one my hards became dryer and less hydrated which is exactly what this product is suppose to reverse. I wouldn't really recommend this, there's other hand creams that work better that are cheaper. You don't get a lot of product for what you pay for either. It does smell quite nice though and absorbs nicely.
Date published: 2019-01-07
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Packaging Could Be Improved This absorbs very well. No scent. The quality is great. Its packaging needs to be improved. After half way through the tube, it bcomes very strenuous push out the lotion. Compared to a competitor of Kiehl's, their hand cream tube has a much better finish and seamless squeeze of the tube. Kiehl's could beat the competitor if the packaging was improved.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best I've used so far As a nurse I am constantly washing my hands which has resulted in dry, rough skin on my hands. I bought this in New York and was sceptical at first but I have to say that it is brilliant!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more sore hands, excellent Through work I wash my hands a lot and they become sore and the skin cracks , got this as a sample, and I cant recommend it highly enough , you only need a tiny amount, and it has left my hands soft.it is not sticky and doesnt leave a greasy residue, well worth the money

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have to have this on me at all times! I'm currently on medication that makes my skin especially dry and prone to rashes. If I use this salve for 24 hours, my rashes and dry spots are gone. The best features are the fresh, barely there smell, the texture (it's not greasy!!!) and the long-lasting effectiveness. I have to have this on me at all times!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't Live Without This Magic Stuff! I have been seriously addicted to this best-hand-lotion-ever for years, and even got my product-hating husband to use it for his cracked mitts. It's non-greasy, with a subtle gender-neutral scent, and it really works. I must not be the only one, because almost EVERY time I go to my local Kiehl's store, they are out of stock. Seriously!? I thought this was one of your mainstays, there's no reason not to keep every store stocked always. I am also very disappointed you've discontinued the convenient 1 oz travel/purse size. I'd gladly buy several to stock up, and NO the 2.5 oz isn't a suitable replacement (too big!) Listen to your longtime customers, please...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This hand Crème works Purchased as a secondary item at the Kiehl’s store and so glad I made the purchase. This hand Crème works and my hands were seriously transformed from enduring the cold winter climate. My hands look younger no longer dry and wrinkled. Will definitely keep this on my list of “must have” ongoing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rich and nourishing This hand cream is just what the doctor ordered to ease dry cracked hands in winter months. Absorbs easily into skin leaving hands feeling smooth and nurtured. The scent of eucalyptus is very soothing. I will dedinitely purchase this product again.
Date published: 2018-03-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more paper cuts! I love this cream because your hands feel slippery, not sticky, I can't stand sticky, especially at bedtime! Other big bonus is that your hands are less vulnerable to paper cuts, I think again because they are slippery and the salve sticks around after a hand wash too! I think it should be marketed less as a masculine gardening salve and more as a working girl product!
