Cetaphil Therapeutic Hand Cream -- relief for dry and cracking hands

Dec 26, 2006

Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:non-greasy, easy to apply, long-lasting, fragrance free


The Bottom Line: Long lasting relief for anyone who suffers from dry or cracking hands!

Back in October my hands were dry, cracking, red and sore from (1) Minnesota’s dry winters and (2) constant washing to prevent the transfer of cold germs from Kid’s daycare and everywhere else. Then I picked up a tube of Cetaphil Therapeutic Hand Cream, and after only a few weeks of consistent use, my hands were looking and feeling much softer again!

Description of the Cetaphil Therapeutic Hand Cream

This hand cream comes in a 3oz green and purple squeeze tube that is small enough to fit in a purse. I picked mine up at Target for $6.99. The cream is white, odorless, and contains Shea Butter for extra moisturizing.

Purified Water, Glycerin, Cetearyl Alcohol (and) Oleth-2, Peg-2 Stearate, Butyrospermum ParkII (Shea Butter), Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Dimethicone, Stearyl Alcohol, Glyceryl Stearate (and) Peg-100 Stearate, Methylparaben, Tocopherol, Arginine PCA, Chlorhexidine Digluconate.

My use of the hand cream

The hand cream is thicker than a lotion, and is not runny at all. But it doesn’t clump and it spreads easily over my hands. The best part is that it is absorbed into my skin within a couple of seconds and leaves my hands feeling soft, but not greasy at all. I don’t have the slippery feeling that I sometimes get from lotions, so I don’t have to pat dry my hands after using this cream. I also love that it is fragrance free, so it’s not overpowering to the senses and doesn’t compete with perfume.

You have to be careful not to squeeze the tube too hard because, in my experience, a little goes a long way with this cream. I only need an amount the size of a pea to adequately moisturize my hands. This is also a plus because the tube is expensive, so the fact that only a little is needed will help to extend its use.

I’ve been using the Cetaphil Therapeutic Hand Cream daily for over a month. On average, I apply it 2 times per day. I’ve seen a dramatic difference in the appearance and feel of the skin on my hands. There is no more cracking or dry spots, the redness is gone, and, best of all, they don’t hurt anymore. I find that it has a long lasting effect, too, because I don’t need to reapply every time that I wash my hands. At this point, I usually just apply in the morning and again at night and that has been enough to both fix and prevent my dry and achy hands.

This cream can also be used on feet, and I have been doing so for the past couple of nights. In that short period of time, I’ve seen a huge difference in my cracked heels. However, I’m not sure I’ll continue to use it for feet, since that requires more cream and this brand is not cheap.
