I don't ever want to live without this! I dislike the feel of lotion or hand creams, so I don't use them as often as I should for my dry hands. This stuff though! It absorbs beautifully and the scent is amazing. I have noticed an actual difference on my hands since I started using this - they are noticeably smoother even hours after applying, and even into the next day. To stretch things further, I add it to my preferred hand lotion at night (which transforms my unscented, decent lotion into a magical gardenia-scented dream!) and sometimes I'll mix it with a little coconut oil for body. It's also absolutely lovely by itself for after bath/shower.
