Recently Maple Holistics asked if they could send me something to try. I chose the Hand Cream for Dry Skin because my hands are awful in the winter – they crack and bleed and generally feel like sandpaper. I’ve had a really hard time finding a lotion that makes any difference, especially one that’s made with quality ingredients. I’ve tried straight shea butter and bag balm, which haven’t helped and are really greasy.
I really like this hand cream. A lot. It smells awesome (seriously so good – I think it’s the geranium and lavender) and it’s really thick and moisturizing without being greasy. It soaks in fast (or at least my dry hands suck it up) and feels great. It definitely has helped my skin – my skin looks more even and less rough and dry – but I’ve still had some cracking and bleeding on my fingertips. However, I feel like they’ve cracked and bled less, so that’s something still! The one drawback is the price – at $45 it’s a pretty expensive tube of lotion, at least for me. And I’ve used it a lot, which means that it’s disappeared fast, too.
