Most Helpful Positive Review Very Good Hand Creme -- Not Great
It's exactly as advertised, which is rare these days. If you have dry hands from the winter or just in general, it's a solid emulsifier to make the hands get back to normal. Yes, they do have some suppleness after use of the hand cream, but I've used better ones for about the same value.
If you've read any of my reviews, you'd know I'm an ingredient junkie. Despite it having methylparaben as one of its preservatives, there are no bad ingredients. They left out the ingredient "fragrance," which is tremendous because that's the last thing you need for dry hands. It still has a nice aroma due to some essential oils and extracts in the salve. I wish allantoin and shea butter were a bit higher on the ingredients list, but honestly they have good emulsifiers as is. So, I can't complain too much.
Lastly, I think it's important to note the lack of greasiness feeling after using a good amount of the product. It absorbs into the skin very well, so less grease and less time waiting for your dry hands to feel better. Overall, as stated in the tittle, it is a very good product. It's not my favorite hand creme for making my hands really, really soft, so that's why it's a 4/5 instead of a 5/5. I would still highly recommend trying it. I would be surprised if you regretted it.
Most Helpful Critical Review Not impressed.
While the hand cream does work well and does seem to keep hands hydrated for long periods of time. As the tube seemed to run out, I cut it in half to get out the last bits - but to my surprise, the tube was still about half full. I just simply could not squeeze any more out as it had all stuck to the sides. Very disappointed in the packaging of this. I've never seen this much stuck inside a tube of any other brand. Unlikely to purchase again as I can find similar value out there without this issue.
I'll be going back to using Jack Black's hand cream, which is the same price.

I use this every night before bed and sometimes during the day. I live in a very dry climate, and this amazing hand salve provides relief for my dry hands and cuticles. Sometimes I even use it on my feet and elbows. A little goes a long way, so the tube lasts for a while. I can't recommend this product enough!
Lyndep from Louisiaba
I use this product on my dry cracked hands. Khiels made them feel better. Allieved the deep, bloody cracks.
Hydrating without greasiness!
Doughnutmonster from Burlington, ON
As a nurse, especially during a pandemic, my hands used to get so dry they would crack and bleed. This salve is a game changer! Not only has it saved my hands, but it absorbs quickly so I can use it at work and not worry about not being able to get gloves on afterwards due to greasiness. In all honesty, the smell is not my favourite but it's light and dissipates quickly, making it usable
in a scent free environment.
Great for hands and feet
LadySunDevil from Phoenix, AZ
I've used this hand salve for 10+ years, and it's saving my hands during the pandemic. All this hand washing has dried out my hands to the point where they look dry, rough, and red. My hands feel so much better when I use this hand salve. I also like to put a layer of Aquaphor/Vaseline on top of it to seal in the moisture. The results I get when I use them are amazing, like it transforms my hands. I also love using the salve on my feet and elbows. It's a great gift, too!
Annie from Michigan
This lotion is great for my super dry hands! I have been using it for a year and continue to purchase. Non-greasy has a slight fragrance.
Absolutely. The. BEST.
Megs from Indiana
My search for the best hand cream is over! This hand cream is moisturizing, heals skin, and is not greasy. I was struggling with dry, rough patches between my fingers. With consistent use, those problem spots have healed. My husband uses this as well with equally impressive results. I don't even notice the subtle eucalyptus fragrance - it dissipates so quickly after application. I can use my phone immediately after I apply this without leaving a messy film on my screen. I have tried all kinds of hand creams, both drugstore and high-end brands, and haven't found any that perform as well as Kiehl's. I'll be a loyal user for life.
This is the best hand lotion!
KH Iowa from Cedar Rapids, IA
This is the best hand lotion I have ever used! It absorbs quickly, leaves hands soft and smooth with no greasy feeling.I use nightly before bed and have noticed a lasting improvement.
Did absolutely nothing
Maura from undisclosed
This hand salve did absolutely nothing for my skin. A tota waste of money.
Nice Product but Too High Priced for me
CTP from New Haven, CT
I use it on my hands and it works well and is not greasy. Not sure it is any better than the much cheaper Jergens.
best lotion ever
Claus from Rosemead
I've had rough, dry, itchy, patches on my hands for about 1 month from constant hand washing. The soap at work dries out my hands so I also tried bringing my own soap and also moisturized afterward. I still couldn't get rid of the dry patches. I've been using this for 4 days, about 2-3x a day (because I forget to use it more frequently). The patches are already 80% gone and no longer itch. Love this!
Best Everyday Hand Cream
Emily from Seattle, WA
I love the consistency of this hand cream. It's thick enough that it really helps heal dry hands, but not so much that it leaves your hands greasy. The scent is a little strong when you first put it on, but it goes away quickly. I will get the bigger tube once this one is empty.
I would buy this product again!
RN from Michigan
I am a nurse, my hands were cracked and red from washing my hands frequently. My hands were horrible nothing helped. Until I bought this product my hands were back to normal after 2 days of using this lotion. My hands are no longer red or cracked!
Pat7 from Toledo, OH, USA
I have used this for years. Now with all of the hand washing and use of sanitizers it is even more helpful It feels wonderful and helps keep hands well moisturized!
The best hand cream ever!
Hmaya from Kansas City, MO
I discovered this hand cream at the Kiehl's shop in the Denver airport during a layover and have loved it ever since! I'll never buy any other brand of hand cream ever again!
BradS from Rancho Mirage, CA
Obviously everyone is washing their hands many times per day; my hands have been so dry until I bought this product. Does cost a little more than most but you don't ned much to last a while. Plus, I really like the subtle scent.
WOW. This stuff is INCREDIBLE!!
CalGirl21 from CA
I've used some pretty decent hand creams in the past, but this Kiehl's Hand Salve is next level amazing. I truly can't express how impressed I am with this lotion - it immediately soothed and moisturized my extremely dry hands (thanks a lot Covid-19!) without being the least bit greasy. It has a very light, pleasant scent, absorbs immediately, and actually keeps your hands moisturized throughout the day. LOVE THIS STUFF SO MUCH... it will definitely be a repeat buy for me.
Really and Truly the Best Hand Lotion Ever!!
EAUB from VA
I have tried every hand lotion I can find and this is the only one that works for me. My hands are so dry and itchy in the winter and this completely soothes them. It's also perfect right now because I am washing my hands so many times during the day. Thank you Kiehl's!
BEST. HAND LOTION. EVER.
pbj123 from New York, NY, USA
Super hydrating! I always keep a small one in my purse and a big one on my desk for all day hydration. Perfect after washing my hands!
Yamo from Ashland, OR 97520, USA
Every time I use it my hands are very happy.
Craftygurl from Arizona desert
Does take a min to totally soak in and my hands are severely dry, but then good to go. It's a little pricey but I do think it's helping.
Definitely will purchase again
Kitty from Torrance, CA
I answer phones and handle paper all day and the fast absorption with no greasiness helps me keeps my hands moisturized
Real Hand Saver
Bub71 from Brooklyn, NY, USA
Just recently started using this hand cream because of all the hand washing to prevent COVID-19. I quickly bought a 2nd tube to have on hand because it is the most effective cream I have ever used to keep my hands soft and irritation free. It is also fragrance free which makes it great for allergy sufferers. Please keep on making this wonderful product!
Just the thing after so much hand washing
Godzilla from Seattle, WA
With the multiple hand washings due to recent circumstances, I decided to try this since my hands were becoming so dry. It is fantastic! Moisturizes through several washings and really helps overnight. Highly recommend - so much so that I bought 10 more to give to friends and family (whenever I can see them...)
Best hand cream ever
Paps from Hingham, MA
As a teacher I am constantly washing my hands and this cream really does keep my hands moisturized for hours. I love that it is non greasy.
great product worst packaging
restless from australia
Love the product - fabulous for my very dry hands but soooo hard to get all of it out of the tube would much prefer large size with pump action. such wasteful packaging.
