Sc - 4 days ago, Verified purchaser
Love their other products but, not a fan of this one. I am keeping it but it feels weird when you put it on. It doesn’t feel like it has moisturized my skin but, makes my hands feel like they have turned into plastic. I won’t be buying it again. I’ll stick with the Aveeno Skin Relief Hand Cream in the tube. It’s fantastic and works great but is hard to find.

For reference, I have dry skin and tend to get hangnails and have dry cuticles. I really want to like this hand cream because I love CeraVe products, but this one is just okay. The consistency is a little more runny and watery, but it applies smoothly and dries down quickly. It doesn’t leave my skin oily, sticky, or greasy. It makes my skin feel smooth and matte. On the negative side, I often feel like I need to re-apply soon after the first application because it doesn’t feel moisturizing enough. And my cuticles still feel dry. It also has a somewhat strong chemical scent when applying. Once dried on my skin, it’s not too bad. For the price, I don’t think I’ll re-purchase this hand cream.

This hand cream saved my hands!! In the winter I get very dry, flaky, and red knuckles. I started using this hand cream and all the dryness and redness went away almost immediately! I didn’t even apply every day. The consistency is on the thinner side but very soft. I highly recommend.

Worked very fast in healing my dry hands, I had very dry healing scabs on back of hand that went away in a day. My fingertips especially my thumbs can get very dry n crack open and they have kept them so hydrated my hands look so good as I’ve never had them with other lotions. Yes it is a thin consistency but works great!!

Takes a long time to absorb into your skin

stefanief19 - 3 months ago

I’m not too crazy about this handcream because it takes a long time to absorb in your skin and it feels a little greasy. It’s also not as thick as I’d like the hand lotion to be.  It’s unscented, which I like for handcream when my hands are really dry.

We appreciate the opinions of our customers and want to help you the best we can in finding the right products for your skin!

This stuff literally saved my hands. I have eczema and struggle when the weather gets cold. All the other lotions I was using couldn't keep up, but this one did the trick! My hands are soft and healed. It is a little expensive, so I don't know if it will be a regular purchase, but it is definitely something I will use when I experience a flare-up.

Not the best for extremely dry and cracked skin and eczema prone skin. Product dries quickly-before you can even rub it. Good for if you have normal skin and if you like a non-greasy hand cream.

Hello! We are sorry to hear that our Therapeutic Hand Cream for Dry Cracked Heads did not perform as you had hoped. We value all your feedback and we will be sure to share it with our team.

Not really a cream, more of a lotion (a runny lotion, even). It’s fine but definitely not worth the price then.

Momofthree - 3 months ago
I typically use CeraVe Moisturizing Cream but thought this might be better. WRONG. Maybe I got a weird tube/batch but I couldn't believe how runny this was. It's thinner than lotion, does soak in quickly but wears off just as quickly with no noticable improvement in skin texture. Will not buy again.

Hello Momofthree! We appreciate you trying out our Therapeutic Hand Cream. We understand how frustrating it is to try a new product and not achieve the results you were hoping for.

matchka - 4 months ago, Verified purchaser
It doesn't feel like a cream. It leaves some residue on hands to protect them but it has very runny consistency like a cheap lotion. I feel like you need a lot of the cream to cover your hands vs. if you used any other brand (Eucerin, Aquaphor). Also, it contains parabens and speciffically propylparaben, an endocrine disruptor.

Keeps Hands Moisturized

This is my favorite hand cream. I live in the dry state of Arizona so I’m always in need of very moisturizing hand cream. This one works and keeps my hands from be by a shriveled mess. It absorbs right into the skin and doesn’t leave any greasy residue. It doesn’t have any scent either which is great. I keep it at my desk at work so it’s also there when I need it.

Provides some relief from dry skin but not much. Way too thin and watery to be called “cream.” It’s barely lotion.

I really enjoy this so far! I’ve only been using it for about a week, but I have noticed a difference. I’m washing baby bottles twice a day, so between the hot water and soap, my hands are rough. Only downside is the size of the bottle. I wish it was offered in a larger tube!
