My rough dry hands need to be rescued, but Vaseline intensive care is not going to do the trick. I was excited to try it, because I wash my hands a lot at work, and the dry winter air really makes my skin cracked and unattractive. The consistency of this hand cream is thinner than I expected. It comes out of the tube very quickly so I always get too much. It does soften my hands for a while, until I wash them again. The moisturizing just doesn't last as long as I had hoped it would. That being said, this hand cream does absorb quickly. I love the fact that it is frangrance free and hypoallergenic. My dry fingernails look and feel so much better when I t apply the Vaseline hand cream. That is a real plus to me. This cream definitely has its good points. I just wish they were lasting ones.
