Best used on barely damp hands..it locks in the moisture iwth a pleasant but not overwhelming scent. Hard to screw the lid back on with hands immediately afterward as there is residue that make your hands slippery until it air dries. So things like putting on earrings could be impossible for a minue or two!
I usually end up lightly rubbing the residue of my palms off on my arms or legs. Most products don't have glycerine, like this does.
I find it highly superior to other products that moisturize through their high water content. This works much better on skin that has been in water and then lightly dried first, so don't expect it to moisturize so much as hold in moisture

I am a lotion aficionado; I love to try out all the different products. I cannot recommend this one, however. There are two major problems with it. The first is the overwhelming odor. It smells exactly like the Pond's cold cream my mother used to slather on her face. She was born in 1917, which is how old-fashioned this concoction seems. Number two: Even if the product didn't have such a strong smell, I could not use it. It is so oily and thick it doesn't absorb into my skin, no matter how little I try. I can't even apply it to my feet as it gets tracked all over my carpets and wood floors. Truly, you'd get the same effect by buying some petrolatum (one of the main ingredients). Better yet, try one of the hundreds of excellent lotions that drugstore.com sells. There are so many outstanding ones such as Booth's. I would have returned this product had it not weighed so much--I am seriously disappointed.

        One of the two best I have found for winter use but, you need only a very small amount, rub it in well and wipe from palms.

          I put this on at bedtime every night and no longer get cracks in my fingertips which was pretty common during dry winter months.. Have used this product for about five years and have not found anything better for moisturizing skin.. Also good on dry heels.

            Comments about Glysomed Hand Cream, 5 fl oz:

            I have a rare disorder that causes my hands to be very dry and then they crack. It is called Pityriasis Rubra Pilaris and this is the only cream I have found that actually helps with this condition. I also get compliments on my fragrance when I have this on my hands and I don't have fragrance on, so I know it is the cream that they are smelling. Everyone says it smells clean. The fragrance does not irritate my sensitive skin at all. This cream is a healer.

                  I work at a job that demands a lot of hand washing during the day, at the end of the day my hands are so dry and hurting, sometimes the skin is even open and it bleeds. I tried multiple hand creams but this cream is by far the best, I put it at night and my hands are soft and healed and not hurting the next morning.

                      I have been using Glysomed for about 20 years on my feet and hands. I find that since being made by Blistex the product is much thinner and much less healing for me. I wish they would go back to the original formula. I know cost is a factor but I would gladly pay the additional cost if I could obtain the original Glysomed.
