Like all of the other Avene products, this is a beautiful thick textured cream. It has the same scent as all Avene products, quite a pleasant scent.
I suffer with dry, dry hands, always have had super dry skin everywhere; hands, body, face. I have found it so hard to find a great hand cream that does the job. I have tried 100's of hand creams, some very expensive and some on the cheaper end.
My hands normally are dry looking, scaly, crepey. This hand cream nourishes my skin, it's like a balm in a way. It absorbs beautifully though and does not leave any trace of oily residue. I always apply this before bed though so I don't wash my hands and the cream can really sink in and do its job. When I wake up in the morning my hands still look healthy and plumped up and it only begins to wear off after a few washes through the day.
I would recommend this to everyone.

Hand cream heaven!
I've tried a few Avene products to date now and I must say they are proving to be a brand i can trust for my unpredictable skin. So far I've fallen in love with many of their products but this hand cream is one of my faves.
From the above picture you can see the design of the product. Its simple yet screams luxe to me. I love the white colouring and the avene orange squiggle
The cream comes in a massive 75ml soft squeeze tube with a flip top lid. It's slim enough to carry around in your handbag if you like.
Ive been using this cream morning and night. The cream is quiet thick but still easy to squeeze out and absorb into my skin. It's not artificially fragranced at all but still has a light scent. Once absorbed I'm never left with any oily or greasy residue but I can feel a thin protective barrier. This doesn't bother me at all. I like it as i know I can wash my hands a few times and not ruin the benefits of the cream. When I apply it at night i wake to soft nourished hands that look amazing. I also massage the cream into my cuticles. My nails look strong and healthy and the whites of my nails are extremely white. I love it!
This hand cream is by far a favorite of mine. A must try for overly dry hands.

Thick and luxurious!
I received a sample tube of this from Chemist Warehouse and promptly returned and purchased the full size unit.
The product is lovely, rich and leaves my hands well moisturised and smooth. After a week of consistent use the dry and rough callous I had on my palm had gone!
The cream is also non greasy so you don't have horribly sticky or slimy hands after applying it.

A Luxurious Hand Cream
Avene Cold Cream is the only hand cream I can use that doesn't cause an allergic reaction to my dermatitis prone hands. It has a light fragrance that doesn't irritate my skin, it absorbs well without leaving a greasy residue and leaves my hands moisturised. A great product!

Sheer bliss for dry, chapped hands!
I'm always on the lookout for a rich, hydrating hand cream to soothe and care for my dermatitis prone dry hands. After reading all the rave reviews about this product I just had to try it for myself and I'm SO glad I did - it has a light fresh fragrance and from the first application my hands felt soft, smooth and beautifully hydrated. Even my rough cuticles and dry patches felt nourished and I really like that it absorbs quickly without leaving a slimy residue feeling. According to the packaging one application is enough to last for 12 hand washes and I agree that it does last all day. I apply it at night then pop on my cotton gloves to absorb and take care of my paws! This really is a winner and for about $15 it's a steal in my opinion. Super chic packaging too looks great in my handbag :)

very moisturising. the texture requires getting used to. skin is soft and there are no cracks after using it. even after you wash it off. very pricey though, for a hand cream!

Good hand cream
This is a good hand cream. It does last through lots of hand washes and hands feel smooth and soft.
I don't like the price tag but would buy it happily if my Aveeno hand cream wasn't available.
