I am pretty particular about my hand creams.. This one was ok, but left a lingering greasy feeling.

Nice but not my favorite scent
Sampled

I think this is a great hand cream. It left my hands very soft. My only complaint is the scent I received in my box wasn't one of my favorites. I will definitely continue to use the sample- but if I were to purchase full size, I would try a different scent.

Great hand lotion
Sampled

I received two 10mL 'tear & use' samples in the Ala Moana scent. Holy Jasmine! This fragrance is strong! I happen to like jasmine a lot and am not sensitive to strong scents. If you have a sensitive nose and don't love jasmine, I don't think this particular hand cream would necessarily be for you. It is very thick while absorbing quickly and is not greasy. My hands stay moisturized for hours, even after a hand wash. Personally, I look for a thicker cream that is not greasy feeling after application. This product hit the mark for me. I cannot speak to the other scents, but I do plan on purchasing a full size in the Ala Moana and would try another scent.

TREAT. YO. SELF.
Sampled

This product is the epitome of "TREAT YO' SELF". MMM. I almost feel like I don't deserve it. Wait. Of course I do. It smells heavenly and isn't greasy afterwards (read: you can touch things after you've finished applying it.) I tend to steer clear of hand lotions for that reason. I don't usually struggle with dry hands, but I'll keep using my samples. It's divine.

Great scent
Sampled

I got the grapefruit sample in my box. I brought it along for a flight and my boyfriend is super picky about scents LOVED how it smelled. It is a nice and rich hand cream that absorbs quickly, but I didn't really feel like it's softening properties were lasting.

Just ok
Sampled

As others mention, the packaging was poor - the one time tear off use was difficult. The scent was a bit strong for my personal tastes. Just ok.

soft smooth hands
Sampled

I had bleeding chapped hands(even got a manicure in hopes of helping). I still had bleeding cracked hands. I started using this and what a huge difference. They are now very soft and smooth. The fragarence is nice also.

Nice cream, not crazy about the scent
Sampled

I received this in bergamot & ocean aria. I like the way the cream feels on my hands, and it gives them some softness. The only thing I don't care for is the smell. I can't quite put my finger on it - it's not nauseating, but it's something about the smell that I really don't care for. Maybe some of the other scents are better, because the product itself works really well.
