  1. Quality:
    The very best!
    As an esthetician who is constantly washing and sanitizing hands, this is the only hand cream that keeps my hands soft. I use it every night before going to sleep and never worry about dry, chapped hands during the day.
  2. Quality:
    No more cracked skin!!
    I have been using this product nightly for 3 years now! I used to get terribly painful cracks around my fingers and thumbs during the winter. I no longer have had that problem since using this lotion. I recommend this to all who have the same problem as me! Enjoy!
  3. Quality:
    Saved My Hands!
    After years of suffering with dry, cracked, painful hands and numerous failed product tryouts I discovered C O Bigelow Chapped Hands Remedy No.1012. After just a few days I saw a difference and within a few weeks my hands were healed! That was nearly 20 years ago and I remain a faithful and grateful customer.
  4. Quality:
    Best for bleeding dry hands
    I've been using this for years for my bleeding dry hands.. I'm allergic to a lot of soaps as well and my hands crack and bleed all over, not just in the winter. This is the ONLY thing that actually heals and soothes my hands. It does burn for a few minutes if your hands are as severe as mine gets, but after that you can feel the difference, even overnight. I will never use anything else. Ever.
  5. Quality:
    instant relief for cracked hands
    My husband gets dry cracked fingers and hands due to his work. This product is the only thing that really helps heal them .
  6. Quality:
    Excellent product
    I have extremely dry skin in the winter. My hands will get so dry the fingers will crack at the cuticles. I started using this along with the Derma Remedy Lotion six years ago and this is all I have used since finding it. I recommend it to everyone I know who complains of dry skin in the wintertime.

    Chapped Hands Remedy 1012
    The best product ever found to address my extremely dry hands issue. Before this my hands would crack open and bleed. Washing my hands was unbearable never mind taking a shower or even doing any kind of house work!

    Thank you Bigelow!

    Chapped Hands Remedy
    I love this product! I have given it to others that suffer from cracked, dry, bleeding hands and like me they loved it!

    I will continue to purchase this item for as long as I need to just so my hands don't hurt!

    I love it!
  9. Price:
    I love this product! Chapped Hand Remedy works! I have turned on a bunch of women to this product and not one negative statement of this product! I want more products like this. I expect to be a life long consumer of this product! Please keep up the good work!
  10. Quality:
    The best product around
    I've been using this product every night for 4 years now before bed. I love it. The tip near the the tip of my nails were cracked & sore to the point of wanting to cry. Not any more!!! A little goes a long way and since there is no scent my husband is happy because he is allergic to most scents.
  11. Quality:
    Note for People With Hyperhydrosis
    If you're like me and have Palm/planar hyperhydrosis where your hands are either bone dry or amazon rainforest wet this may apply to you as it happened to me. In short, if you have the condition and your hands are dry this will unleash the floodgates.

    When my hands are dry I applied the remedy onto my hands and because the glycerin inside is a humectant coupled with the fact that my hands are well versed in being a sweat factory they IMMEDIATELY activated my hyperhydrosis in my hands (and on the soles of my feet as well). Truthfully, I should have realized as any glycerin could do the same, but to the products credit my hands were no longer dry, and in record time.
  12. Quality:
    Best winter hand cream I've ever used.
    This combined with the waterless hand cleaner if the best winter solution for chapped hands I've ever come across! It helps prevent/heal those awful cracks at the corner of your thumb and it conditions cuticles perfectly!

    I don't think I'll spend another winter without this duo!
  13. Price:
    This product is amazing!
    I live in Colorado and my fingertips have been so badly cracked this winter. This is my second day using this product and they are already healing. This is my new favorite product! Will not go anywhere without it!

    Love this stuff!
    I have been battling eczema on my hands for a year and a half now. It started off on one finger. After trying many hand creams, and it still didn't help, I visited a dermatologist. I was prescribed steroid ointments. Which helped with the redness, but after a few days, the itchiness, blister, and redness would return. My hands would get super dry and flakey. Making it difficult to use my hands , moreso when I had to get them wet. This is tough when you have a toddler who needs constant cleaning. So over time, I used the steroid ointment, along with Eucerin Extreme Cream, as I thought I had no other choice. Over time, my skin showed signs of atrophy! I am only 40 yrs old and my hands looked they aged to 80 yrs old! I found C.O. Bigelow No. 1012, Chapped Hand Remedy by accident in my research to find some other nonsteroid option. I have been using it since August 2013 constantly. My hands feel SO much better. I keep a tube by the kitchen sink, in my bathroom, and in my purse. I have small breakouts of itchiness and redness, but they do not flake. Please do not stop making this product! I love it!
  15. Quality:
    Great product
    My husband has been using this for four years. It is the ONLY product that heals his cracked hands in the winter.
  16. Price:
    The Best I've Found!
    Finally, a lotion that heals as it moisturizes. Each winter I searched for a new cream, lotion or treatment that will soothe my dry, rough hands and each winter I buy something I think will work. The benefits last only until I wash my hands. This amazing product keeps working. I didn't really realize it until I forgot to take it on a business trip this week. I sure won't make that mistake again and I won't be without Chapped Hands Remedy again.
  17. Quality:
    This Stuff Really Works!
    I always get dry, cracked skin around my fingertips during the winter. It is frustrating as I can't touch anyone without scratching or fondle delicate fabric without snagging it. I tried many other creams but this is the ONLY ONE that works and works continuously! I rub it on my hands during the day as needed and then wear moisturizing gloves overnight for even better results. Even my husband uses it! I can guarantee you will love this stuff as much as I do. I cannot recommend it it enough!
  18. Value:
    Great lotion that is not oily
    I love this lotion because it appears as if it is going to be like petrolium jelly when extracted from the tube, but is not greasy or oily at all. It soaks into skin without leaving hands feeling greasy or wet. It really helped my chapped knuckles last winter. The only downfall is the price. There is only a small size offered, but it costs $14. I will say that a little bit of this goes a long way and lasts, and you aren't forced to reapply regularly.
