Rated 4.8 out of 5 stars
I'd pay double. Ok, so I don't WANT to pay double, but this hand moisturizer is far and away, above and beyond, the BEST hand cream I have ever used. I've never used a hand cream that, literally, has worked overnight to stop cracks dead in their tracks. You know right when you get a small crack that will easily develop into a LARGE crack if something isn't done to keep it moisturized? Or a larger crack that's on the verge of turning into a real painful proposition the next time you bump it or jam it into something? Yeah. This has neutralized my dry hand problems since the beginning of this year and I will never use another brand so religiously. It even seems to outlast some hand-washings and I work in a gym and I wash my hands many times throughout the day and... you get the picture. It's worth EVERY penny. Thank you Jack Black.
You will find Cetyl Alcohol in most lotions. However, it is usually down the ingredient list a bit. In this product, it is the second ingredient. I made the mistake of not looking at the ingredient and trusting that with a name like "Industrial Strength Hand Healer" this product must be able to help my cracked and dry skin. That was the wrong assumption. This is SO drying. It made my hands worse, and I am sorry I used ANY, because I wish I could return it. The Eucalyptus scent is overbearing as well. I will not buy this again, and I will steer clear of this brand. Good luck finding good lotions! They are out there, but you really have to pay attention to what makes the product work.

I work a manual labor job in a warehouse, and I can't tell you how many greasy & unhelpful products I've tried to use to heal my cracked winter knuckles. I had pretty much stopped trying to heal them and was just suffering through it when on a whim I tried this product. By the next morning, my cracked skin was smooth again! It goes on easily (although it definitely stings for a bit if your hands get as cracked as mine do) and dries down quickly with NO greasy feeling -- which means I can use this at work without having to wipe my hands down afterward.
My only con is that it does have a strong eucalyptus smell -- reminds me of Vick's Vapo-Rub, and I kind of hate it. But for me, the effectiveness of the lotion is worth it, and the smell does dissipate/you get used to it.

Works well. Has a nice minty smell and goes on smooth without any greasy or too thick feeling.

I didn't find this product to be any better or worse than any other hand lotion. The price would suggest that it works better than most, but it doesn't.

I bought this hand cream for my boyfriend who had really dry callused hands (he goes to the gym). I also bought him a hand callus remover but that's beside the point. This hand cream made his hands feel sooooo soft like a baby. It absorbed very nicely and wasn't greasy. He really loves this hand cream and is always thanking me for buying it for him. Highly recommend!!

Best hand lotion/cream I've ever used. Will continue to buy.

My hands get extremely dry from daily activities (washing dishes is the worst). I have used this lotion for years. I love it. The only downside is the price. But it is worth every penny. I only use it at night and it keeps my hands soft and supple.

Best hand lotion for men. Works better than anything else I have tried. Non-greasy. Nice, neutral masculine scent

Got this for my boyfriend who works on cars and had 150 grit sandpaper hands. It is instantly moisturizing without being greasy and has a nice, faint herbal scent. It's a good dupe for "working hands" lotion for those looking for something less greasy.

Went in to store and asked the sales gal for the "BEST" hand cream she had, money was no object at this point as my fingers were cracking and peeling and cuticle oil and the hand serums I had were not doing anything. My husband actually uses a lot of Jack Black products but we did not have this one. In 1 application I noticed a difference, 4 days later my hands are 90% better. Highly recommend this product!

Best hand healer out there. It's not greasy and absorbs easily.
Robert from undisclosed
The only hand healing lotion I use now and I've used many in the past. My hands crack and will even bleed in the winter, if I don't use this hand healer. I now make sure to keep it on hand at all times.
Linlin from Arkansas
I got this to use on my heels so my feet would be under ready and my husband stole it from me. He loves that the scent isn't super loud, it isn't feminine, and it moisturizes his hands. I guess I'll order two next time.
FrederickB from undisclosed
Quickly absorbs with a minimal, neutral scent and keeps hands moisturized. It works so well that my wife wants to get one for herself!

I love the Hand Healer; it really is industrial strength. I spend a lot of time outdoors and my hands get used and abused and I can always count on the Hand Healer to bring them back - keep them from cracking and solve the problems with dry, rough hands. It is my "go to" product for hand care.

I found a sample of this amazing hand cream in a women's shelter. The cleaners we used to clean the house was very hard on my hands causing deep cracks in my fingers. After the use of this product not only did it stop the pain but the cracks began to close within a couple of days. I can't wait to order some and recommend it to my friends and family. Jonice S.

Excellent product, not only we use it on our hands but also great on dry foot heels and it smells amazing. Everything we use made by jack black is great..

MY Favorite hand Treatment- it restores my very chapped hands- I haven't had cracks or open erosions - since I started using- I use it daily once at night- and it's amazing!
PaulF from undisclosed
Very impressed. Hands felt smooth. Within one minute of applying the "healer," my hands weren't greasy. That almost never is the case. By lightly wiping my hands off, I was able to pick up most books and/or papers without worrying about getting them stained.
MarciaR from undisclosed
It is amazing, love how it is not greasy and it is instantly absorbed into my hands and they are immediately super soft.
SteveB from undisclosed
Been using this for years. The only product I have found to take care of my dry cuticle and hands. Wouldn't use anything else!
WILLIAM from undisclosed
Product itself couldn't be better - truly incredible. But - you can't get to the last 3 or 4 oz of the product because it's so thick. You end up wasting a 1/4 of the bottle. You literally have to cut the top of the bottle off to use the last part of it. I love it but the packaging really is an issue that needs to be resolved, especially at this price point.

This stuff is INCREDIBLE. It's fantastic as an everyday lotion for dry hands, but it also literally does what its name says: It heals. Whenever you get a nick, cut, bad hangnail, etc. on your hand or finger, treat it with this, and it will actually make those wounds heal faster. I had a fairly big, deep wound from a burn-turned-blister (thanks to a hole in my oven mitt). I tried other products but they weren't doing much, so I started putting this on it a few times a day and it vanished within a couple of days. Best hand lotion on the market.

Love it so far. Hands are slowly getting smoother.

The final solution to a long search for something to keep my fingers from cracking.
Nothing else worked.

I had really high hopes for this because I really like their lip balm. Unfortunately this hand cream really dried out my hands. At first it seemed okay, nice and silky, not greasy. But after using for a week my hands are itchy and dry.
