Birchbox Breakdown

Your hands go through a lot, what will all the wood-chopping, brush-clearing, and lion-taming you do on a daily basis. That's why you need an intense hand cream to get them back in working (read: non-gross) order. This mineral-enriched formula does the trick and then some, healing sensitive skin, cracked fingers, and more. Plus, it sinks in immediately with no residue.

How to Use

Massage a nickel-sized amount into hands. The formula may feel a little slick at first, but it dries completely and leaves skin feeling soft. Apply as needed.

AMAZING
Purchased

I say this as someone who lives in New England, works outside all day for a living, and uses their hands A LOT- that this is the best moisturizer I have ever come across. Nothing works on dry cracked skin better- both my husband and I are OBSESSED with this product and I give it away as gifts to people its so great!

Amazing hand cream, Dead Sea benefits at home!
Purchased

This hand cream is amazing! I have dry hands and have tried SO many different creams with not much luck. I recently traveled to Isreal and went to the Ahava store but did not purchase anything. I had points to spend on Birchbox and decided to go ahead and give the brand a try. I am so glad I did! The hand cream is thick but quickly turned silky smooth as I rubbed it in, there is a noticeable change to my hands within a few days. Now I just need another tube to keep at work! I do wish there was a travel size that I could keep in my purse, or a way to purchase the sample size.

Works Great, not a fan of initial scent
Purchased

This is a great product, I applied way to much the first time but I kept rubbing it in and in, finally there was no oily residue. I now know the correct amount and within a few seconds of rubbing the product around my hands there is no residue and they are left moisturized. I do no enjoy the original scent it leaves, but it does fade away shortly. We are constantly using our hands why not take care of them?

This is the best hand cream.

I have been using this on my hands for 15 years--I used to force people to bring it back for me from Israel when you couldn't get it here. Love.

Best lotion out there

This is absolutely my favorite lotion! While it's nice to pamper myself with something fruity or sweet smelling once in a while, Ahava consistently works and has a wonderful, earthy scent. I actually purchased mine at the Dead Sea in Israel, and I'm hooked on their products.

Best Hand Cream Ever
Purchased

I try 4 or 5 different hand creams every year, always searching for something better. My hands are always dry, the skin wrinkled, and the skin on my knuckles often cracked. With the first use I felt relief. By the second day my hands appeared visibly younger, by the third day the skin on the knuckles was no longer cracked. The cream leaves no greasy after-feeling and is very soothing. The only downside is the odor - it reminds me of insect repellent. But the odor fades within 5 - 10 minutes of application, so it's worth it.

Super Luxurious

This hand cream is amazing. I use it everyday and it lasts all day. My hands are chronically dry, in winter especially thanks to WI, and this does the trick.

Great Winter Cream

I love this hand cream in the winter, when my hands are dry due to a cold New England winter. It absorbs fast, smells great and is non-greasy. LOVE this!

Ahava products

In general, Ahava products are wonderful. Loved the smell of the hand cream so much that I bought my sister and "ahava" sample set with hand cream, foot cream, etc. Her hands are cracked from washing too much (she does OT in a hospital), and mine are simply dry from overuse (bureaucrat). I'd recommend getting a smaller size to see if the smell appeals to you, though. I love the smell, but it would easily overpower any perfume I'd wear, hence I use the hand cream only at night.
