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.

      Comments about Glysomed Hand Cream, 5 fl oz:

      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.

        Comments about Glysomed Hand Cream, 5 fl oz:

        It feels greasy at first but it is a superlative softener and moisturizer. Also it lasts longer than most hand creams, even those that are much more expensive. It smells exactly like Ponds Cold Cream, which I don't mind because it reminds me of my grandmother. I highly recommend this if you have dry skin.

        Comments about Glysomed Hand Cream, 5 fl oz:

        I really like the hand and the foot cream they make. But I can't stand the big, flat jar the large size comes in. It's hard to grab a hold of and open. Slides out of my hands after I use the cream.
        It lives in a different jar now.

          I absolutely love this hand cream! I have dry sensitive skin and this is so healing and soothing. The scent is nice too. It is a heavier cream so I use it on my feet with socks at night too. If you have dry, itchy, or painful skin, this is the product for you!

          This winter has been a seemingly unending hellscape of ice, snow, and polar vortex attacks. This glorious product is saving my poor wee hands from the vicious effects of living on Hoth's frozen plains. Bravo, Glysomed, bravo.

              Comments about Glysomed Hand Cream, 5 fl oz:

              I bought this product because it had a good rating and the price was reasonable. It comes in a flat jar type of container. It seems a bit goopy at first but if you just keep rubbing it in, your skin will eventually absorb it. I have used this on my hands and legs. I think it works well and my hands feel reasonably soft for someone who washes them a great many times during the day.

                I use this at night before I go to sleep and I always wake up with soft hands. Its a great product especially in the winter when hands tend to get chapped. My hands are never chapped since I started using this.

                  Comments about Glysomed Hand Cream, 5 fl oz:

                  We tried to keep this stocked in our home, but our son kept "stealing" it for his girlfriend to treat her eczema, so now we just order extra for her! Glysomed is a rich cream with a gel-like consistency that absorbs quickly & soothes rough patches, keeping skin moisturized longer than any other brand we've used. It's great for itchy winter skin and parched, sun-dried summer skin, as well as rough heels & elbows. Its scent won't compete with your perfume/cologne, as it is practically odorless. LOVE IT!
