What we say: Our testers found this hand cream absorbed well and didn’t leave behind a greasy finish on skin.

With a lotion-like consistency, the product was easy to smooth onto hands and a little dollop was all that was needed to fully cover them. Immediately after application, skin felt hydrated and softened, even areas where skin was dried out from the cold winter weather. The hydrating effects lasted well beyond application.

While they reported the fragranced option was a bit strongly scented, the fragrance-free option has become a new go-to in their winter skin-care routines.
