This cream is my new superhero hand cream. I have others that are nice, but not very strong. When you spend a few hours washing dishes or cleaning, and your hands are really dry, regular hand cream requires multiple applications before it makes any difference at all. This cream restores lost moisture with one application.
This cream is thick and rich, with a slightly whipped consistency. It has only a very mild scent, likely from the ingredients only. It takes just a dime-size amount of this cream to completely restore your hands' moisture without having to reapply. Two other great attributes are that it is cruelty free and is Fair Trade (shea butter is from Africa). For my vegan friends: it does contain beeswax, so it is not vegan.
I was really impressed by this cream. First, I thought the price was a little bit high, but when I noticed with other creams that I have to reapply multiple times, where I only have to apply this once, I realize the cost is not such a big factor. This cream is absolutely lovely.
