This is different than any other hand cream I've ever tried. The formula is actually a gel that turns into a cream once it's rubbed into the skin. (For reference, it has a consistency similar to Neosporin.) I wasn't sure how to feel about that, until I watched the cream work its magic.
Gone were the chapping and cracking -- in their place was soft, smooth skin that looked like cold temperatures had never arrived! Plus, it's fragrance free, so it doesn't compete with scented body lotions or perfumes.
I feel like this is a more clinical approach to whipping skin into shape -- and I like it!
