When I put this on some dry/cracking skin, the next day it's soft like a Babies bum! I hate putting lotion on my hands as it makes things slippery or to greasy feeling. This is the only brand I will put on my hands. I've got this as a gift for Christmas last year and I'm still using the same bottle. It smells so nice. A little goes a long way. It also doesn't burn when you apply.
