I have been struggling with eczema on my hands since the birth of my second daughter, with areas so severe I required a Medrol dose-pack twice and high dose topical steroids. Have been seeing a wonderful dermatologist but nothing made it calm down to a reasonable level. I hate the idea of having to use topical steroids all of the time but tried to maintain my skin with OTC 1% hydrocortisone and every lotion/cream/ointment under the sun, both prescription and OTC. I am a physician and frequently wash my hands, use hospital grade sanitizer before and after each patient. This only exacerbates the problem. Was given this by my friend and decided to try it; for the first time in 6 years I have gone for 5 straight weeks without any steroid on my hands, skin is moisturized and less itchy and I don't scratch often. My skin is definitely healing and I am very optimistic that with another month they will look even better. I apply the lotion frequently throughout my day and prior to bed, then sleep with cotton gloves on. Am very pleased with my results to date. In fact, I used this and an aloe vera cream on my second daughter's face when she broke out with eczema (I am very hesitant to use steroid unless absolutely necessary, especially on her face) and she is also responding well to it. Moisturizing frequently is a regular part of my and my 6 yr old daughter's day living with eczema, but after years of incessant itching and God knows how many $ I have spent on multiple products, I have to say this is the best product I have ever used on my hands. I don't usually post reviews, but if this helps someone like it helped me and my little one, then it's totally worth the time to give the feedback. I will definitely be a lifelong customer.
I was so happy to see this item on Amazon Prime and the price was so good for the size of the tube. I love this product. I have dry skin and it does what it advertises to do and I love the "healthy" fragrance. It is not oily and makes my hands look like they have never been dry. I am 71 years old and have tried many different hand "creams" that never compared to this one!
This stuff works!!! I do a lot of crafting that pulls all the oils out of my hands so they get very dry. I can use this at night and by morning I see improvement. During the day I use just a tiny bit after washing my hands while they are still damp, it soaks in and cuts a bit of the greasy feel. I used to use this when I was a dishwasher some year back and I don't remember it smelling so strongly of patchouli. Oh well I'll put up with it for soft hands that don't snag on everything!!
In winter the dry air of our house and the cold temperatures outside lead to painful splits on hands and feet. This product protects the skin, is non-greasy, and doesn't smell flowery or medicinal. And, a little goes a long way!
About 11 years ago my lady had really bad dry cracked skin on her fingertips and a friend of hers bought this for her. She said it worked wonders! Her skin started getting dry again so I ordered a tube for her. It took some time to remember the name of this product but with great surprise I found it on Amazon, my lady's favorite place to shop! Thank you to Amazon for having this product on their site and to Aundrea Williams, president of Hayley's Haven Inc. for being so appreciative of my purchase.
I love the actual lotion. It smells good. It isn't super greasy. It penetrates deep, creating a healing effect. The only problem for me is the actual tube. I've had two tubes break/split from creases toward the middle of the tube. This is most likely from being smashed by other things in my bag, but that wouldn't happen (as easily) with a more durable/plastic material. I still use them, though; I "bandaged" the tubes with tape. Now I keep them in my desk instead of in my bag.
