I have used this cream for years, since I first saw it in your catalog. It is my favorite, ever, though I can't buy it all the time, due to the price. It's a treat for myself.

The smell is heavenly, just heavenly and the cream is nice and smooth. It doesn't leave your hands greasy. I didn't give it 5 stars because it's not the most emollient hand cream I've ever used and because the scent fades in the jar over time. That said, it's still very nice. It would be a good cream without the great scent, and the great scent is worth it even if the cream isn't the very best. All in all, it's a really nice product. I've given it for gifts and the recipients always rave about it.

I bought the lavender rosemary shea butter cream. I leave it on my desk and use frequently throughout the day. It is a wonder product. It does what it says it does and has the most pleasing fragrance! thank you for producing this wonderful cream.

Definitely moistens and has a wonderful fragrance. Best to apply at night before bed, as it tends to be a bit greasy and takes a bit of time to work itself in. Hard to do anything involving a grip for a bit. Also, that lavender aroma is very calming as you drift off.

Love this hand cream. The smell is heavenly. It is creamy without being greasy. Rubs in quickly and gave my winter skin relief that I have been looking for. I just wish it came in a larger container!! !I will be ordering this cream again. I've noticed a great improvement in my psoriasis and the splits I experience in my skin during winter cold have healed nicely. I put a healthy amount of this cream on my hands every night before bed, put on cotton gloves and when I wake up in the morning, my hands look and feel amazing.

I have been feeding my goat hay in short sleeves and I am allergic. So my arms have a rash. And I can only use this lavender rosemary shea butter cream, it is the only thing that helps!

This is my second or third jar. It smells heavenly and leaves my hands soft but not greasy.

Personally I am not crazy about the smell of this. However, I think there is something in it that helps my skin. I get this weird allergy on my fingers and my skin peels. I have had to get prescription ointments in the past. I swear when I use this it takes care of that problem. I put it on at night and my skin feels really soft and nourished in the morning, and that weird allergy does not come back.

Best hand cream I've found! Makes my hands soft without being greasy. And I can get right back to using my hands without having to wipe any excess off. I'd love to find a fragrance-free face cream version of this!

I have chronically dry skin, and my hands are the worst. So, based on the write-up of this product, I expected it to yield impressive results. This was not to be! I find the salve to be dry, and, actually difficult to apply, and, I always wash my hands to moisten them before I apply it. Even then, it is not easy to apply and, I have to really rub it with force to get it to spread evenly over my skin. Then, it is a bit "gluey" feeling. I follow an application with wearing gloves to sleep in, and can honestly say that I have not experienced the benefits the write-up states that it affords.
Submitted on Mar 3, 2013
This is the first item I have ordered from Isabella. I love lavender. It is such a clean scent. This cream is the ULTIMATE in both scent and in how it works. I have very dry hands during the winter and nothing seems to help them. Not even those expensive lotions that state they are made specifically for very dry hands. I crochet and I have had to give it up in the winter months because the yarn gets caught on the dryness of my hands. Yep they are that bad!! I got this yesterday and used it three times. Last night I was back crocheting and not one time did the yarn catch on my skin. This morning they are still soft and smooth. I LOVE THIS !!! Thank you so much!!! I am back to order more!!

Good hand lotion but it's not great. I bought it to use overnight while I sleep and REALLY hydrate during the night but, for that purpose, it doesn't do the job. For the purpose of simple hydration after washing your hands, it does a great job and does not leave a greasy feeling.

This cream is awesome! I've ordered and re-ordered it for myself and for gift bags to my sisters. The cream is very soothing--especially nice right before bed--I slather it on my forearms, hands, elbows, and it soothes me to sleep. The aroma is very intoxicating. And my hands wake up soft and smooth.

Okay, I'll be honest. This smells so good, that I don't actually know how well it moisturizes. It DOES moisturize, and I've purchased another jar, but it has this wonderful aroma that helps me fall asleep after putting on my hand cream before bed!
Submitted on Nov 22, 2011
I received my first jar of this as a present. I have since re-ordered and I love the smell of the shea butter very much. I had a candle that I loved that had rosemary/lavender and this has the same wonderful fragrance. In addition, I live in the high desert where our humidity is mostly in single digits. This keeps my hands from cracking in the winter and fights the gardener's hands in the summer. Love it and would recommend it to anyone having dry hand problems.

Five stars isn't a high enough review for this product. I have been using this yummy Shea Butter for 2 years at least, maybe even more. My only complaint is the jar isn't big enough! I could use a pint size jar or larger. I love everything about it from its smell that instantly turns the room or car into a magical place of memories...to the creamy healing smoothness of the butter itself. Lavender soothes my mind and the Rosemary gives me the smells of my Herb garden. My hands and elbows and knees have never looked or felt younger. Thank you for selling me my first jar and the many more to come.

I tried this cream and fell in love with the creamy texture and dreamy scent.. Ahhhh.... But after a few applications, the itchies started as the allergies kicked in. It's not the first time I've reacted to a natural product, though I haven't yet identified the offending ingredient.. I WISH I could use it. But for someone else who doesn't have allergies, this is a wonderful cream.

At first, I just enjoyed this cream because it smells positively wonderful, and it is rich, yet absorbs quickly. But when I went to see my dermatologist in the middle of a miserable, dry, cold New England winter, and she told me that my hands which have been plagued with severe eczema for over 20 years! looked fantastic and that I was clearly taking very good care of them, I was 100 sold on this cream! Wonderful stuff!
