    I really like this hand cream in the winter because after you put it on you feel this sort of film left on your hands that protects it against the cold air outside. It's nice and moisturizing and you only need a little to cover your hands so the bottle lasts you for quite awhile. I always repurchase these in the small tubes so I can keep them in my bag.

    This lotion works well and works fast to moisturize the skin with a nice soft scent to-boot!
    I have definitely noticed a difference in my skin since I've stopped using the lotion, my fingertips have gotten increasingly chapped and dry, I'll need to purchase this again to get my soft hands back :)

    This handcream does wonders for my skin. I get really dry, red hands and this is one if the few lotions that can actually make it better. Not to mention that it works really fast. After one application my skin is already not as red and feels less irritated. I just wish this product didn't cost so much on average its about $3.49 Canadian for 50ml but I keep buying it because it works so I guess its worth it.

    This is my go to hand cream whenever my skin becomes really dry, especially during winter time. This cream is pretty heavy and it will leave your skin feeling oily but it WORKS! This product really moisturizes your skin leaving it feeling extremely soft and not dry. I recommend to put this product on at night before you go to sleep so you're not using your hands much with the product on.

    I at one time used this product for contact dermatitis which I sometimes get from my wedding band and other rings. I stopped using it after I came up with my own product as mine is better and far cheaper, not to mention loaded with nothing but active ingredients. Although that is the case, I DID like this cream very much when I used it some years ago.

    Yes, it is somewhat heavy, but I know that it is quite effective and works quickly. Most hand creams do not, no matter what the brand is. The smell didn't bother me so much, which is surprising as I'm not a big fan of any synthetic scents in any skin care products. As somebody else said, it is available in an unscented version, so there is that option for those who can't tolerate the fragrance.

    As for the price, I used to buy it when it's available around Xmas in those huge value packs, which really IS a great deal. The stuff lasts forever, so a value pack could potentially last for years - the other bonus being that it never separates or goes all liquidy even after an extended period of time in the cupboard - not to mention the fact that you get the hand, body, etc products all in one package.

    Overall, if I didn't have my own product which I make for my dermatitis, I would more than likely use this one before reaching for another brand. It's effective, goes a long way, can be gotten in great value packs and works quickly.

    I heard alot of good things about Glysomed's effectiveness for dry skin. I gave this product a try, and my oh my was it expensive! I was used to paying maybe 3-5 dollars per bottle, but this one I paid almost $7CAD for!

    First of all, upon application, it felt like a plastic overcoat on my skin, and didn't feel like it was absorbing. It wasn't greasy, thank god, but definitely too thick.

    second, I could feel the lotion on me even an hour after i applied it! It didn't feel like my skin was getting moisturized, but continued to stay dry, but with an overcoat of that plastic feel on top

    Maybe it was the scent that gave me a feeling that this product wouldn't be for me. I always like to have a nice scent, or unscented lotion for myself, but glysomed had somewhat of a (yet again) plastic smell to it, that I did NOT enjoy.

    However, I have heard many people say how amazing this product is, and how effective the lotion is on their skin. Maybe this product just isn't for me?

    I have pretty sever eczema and I pretty much have to live with it. It's all over the top portion of my palms and down my fingers, it's unsightly. Itchy. DRY oh so DRY.

    SO! I use a special cream to help with irritation, but my skin is ridiculously DRY to the point that I sometimes can't bend my fingers. I love this cream though, it's saved my hands!

    It's a little greasy, but it holds that moisture in that way. You can buy unscented (but it's not a bad smell!), which I don't bother with and it comes in a variety of sizes. I've seen it priced as low as 3 dollars and at Christmas you can buy the gift set at a great price and get all the sizes.

    It's a great thick cream, absorbs within 5 min, and you feel the difference instantly. Your hands are SO soft and it really helps me with the eczema.

    Glysomed is some good stuff...
    I've used this a few times before and it's one of the only hand creams that gives you instant results. In the winter my knuckles get so dry they crack sometimes, but using this totally fixes it right away.
    This time I bought the FRAGRANCE FREE version, and it is just as great as the regular.
    Glysomed can be a tad bit greasy feeling, but I'm willing to live with that, since it works sooo well.
    The price is awesome, too, and you can buy 50mL bottles that are perfect for keeping in your purse. Definitely will keep buying this and recommending it to the few people I know who haven't tried it yet!

    I have been using this hand cream for years and years and it's the best I've ever used. I have tried others, but I always come back to Glysomed. I usually buy it at Christmas time (for myself) because you can get some really nice gift sets at a fair price. My hands stay moisturized for hours (I have extremely dry skin) and makes my skin silky smooth. Love it!!

    I got glysomed as a present. I am so glad that I did. I always have my hands in water or cleaner and my hands get dry and chapped. I love the way it feels on my skin very nourishing and I like that it doesnt have a amell. still using it today!
