I am very picky about hand creams, and find myself buying them only to give them away to friends because I turn on them quickly. In order to win my fickle heart, a hand cream must:
-smell good but not compete with my perfume
-not need to be wiped off my palms minutes after applying (due to cheap petrochemical ingredients which keep it from absorbing)
-not feel at all greasy/cheao
-actually moisturize my hands and cuticles
You'd think that would not be too hard to find, but sadly most hand creams just don't add up. This was a winner on all fronts. The faint honey fragrance is heavenly. As in, I wanted to put this on more because of the good smell. It absorbs quickly but also manages to provide really lasting moisture without making my palms greasy. It melts into my hands, not off them onto my keyboard, clothes, glasses, etc. And it makes my often ragged cuticles seem temporarily tamed. Even in the 20 degree NYC winter weather, it's been doing such a great job that I am definitely buying a tube!
