I have to use hand sanitizer at work because we have well water. My hands were getting dry after a month of starting there and my nails were cracking at the edges and breaking all the time.
I did some research and decided on this stuff, it's expensive but I want nice, soft, pretty hands to make my fiancé enjoy holding my hand. Turns out if you use it right after washing and drying that half a pea-sized amount will more than coat your hands, so I could see the bottle lasting for months beyond a normal alcohol sanitizer.
After using this stuff for a few months, my hands are soft, the wrinkles have all diminished because my skin is hydrated, my nails are long, beautiful, and strong. I love this stuff and will absolutely reorder when I run low.

Helps R.N. with dermatitis on hands
My mom is a nurse and has painful dermatitis on her hands from constantly using sanitizer and soap. Her clinic hasn't shown any interest in buying higher quality sanitizer so I got this for her to keep in her pocket and use instead. She's been using Bag Balm at night with gloves that have colloidal oatmeal in them for years. That helped immensely but she still has very red chapped hands that split easily. This has helped her a lot in addition to her treatments at night. She also carries a small tube of ShiKai Borage lotion around and applies that throughout the day as well. It's a lot of work to keep a painful condition under control, but until she's ready to retire this product has been a wonderful addition to her arsenal.

INDISPENSABLE, only product of its kind
What a great product, I've used/recommended it for years, for caregiving. It's rich, luxurious, moisturizing, AND kills germs! It can be a BIG challenge to keep germs at bay and care for the delicate skin of older people, especially those with incontinence problems, or ones for whom proper hygiene is an issue. This is non-toxic, non-irritating, even on delicate tissues, like mucous membranes (can use it anywhere, even genital areas- soothing). Has a light, fresh non-mediciny scent, too. Wouldn't be without it!

This is more like lotion than anything
This is more like lotion than anything. A little off-putting as I wouldn't make this a primary hand-sanitizing product.
I thought it would be more like a hand-sanitizer that evaporated but left behind some moisturizing effect.This is slightly disappointing because usually when I put on lotion I also apply it to my face, and I'm afraid to put this on my face because of the hand-sanitizer.
Not a bad product by any means, just not exactly what I thought it was going to be.

Defective nozzle and to get a refund you have to physically return the stupid $12 bottle of lotion -- CAVEAT EMPTOR !!!!! ---
This product arrived with a defective nozzle. When you press down on the pump to get the lotion, it instead spurts out a million tiny cracks in the side. For a $12 bottle of lotion, that is completely unacceptable. Also, the only way to get a refund is to go the trouble of returning the package to the seller-- and let's face it, that hour of time and frustration is worth more than $12. If you are buying this in the first place, you probably work in healthcare, like me, and presumably are also chronically stressed, sleep-deprived, etc. The last thing I need is another hassle. If I had the option of just getting a refund for the defective product, without freaking going to the post office etc, that would be fair. But that's not an option. I strongly encourage you to save yourself the money and the headache and DO NOT PYRCHASE this product. If the seller offers me a no-fuss refund, I will update the review accordingly... until then (if that ever happens), consider yourself warned. CAVEAT EMPTOR!!!!

I find this stuff totally disgusting, and I don't understand why the reviews are so high. I can't tell if it actually sanitizes or moisturizes because it is so freaking sticky that I end up washing my hands after about 5-10 minutes. It is unbearable. Do not recommend.

Love, love, LOVE this! I am a healthcare professional and have to constantly use hand sanitizer. My hands were peeling because of the constant use of hand sanitizer. I had a former co-worker who had a small tube of this and decided to look for it. It is amazing. Leaves my hands silky smooth yet allows me to sanitize my hands between patients. I alternate between regular hand sanitizer and gold bond since it is not inexpensive. But no more peeling hands! And love the smell!!

Moisturizing sanitizer is where it's at
My wife is a Nurse,so she washes her hands 100 times a night. So, in my infinite drive to make my wife's life bettet,and her cracked hands made me sad, I found her sanitizing LOTION. Thank you Gold bond, I could not find this or anything like it at several local stores. Great size for the money. 5 stars! And it smells good also. Win win!

I really like this product. It goes on so nicely and doesn't leave a greasy feel. Even after washing my hands they feel moisturized and soft. I decided to give this a try since I knew I was using way too much alcohol based hand sanitizer and it was affecting my skin. I have always had great luck with Gold Bond products and am glad this item is also excellent.

Great item to have on hand! Er...pun not intended.
I got this for those times when the power is out (we are on well water run by an electric pump, so when the power is out--so is our plumbing), we can have a way to sanitize our hands without stripping all the moisture from our skin, and this works well. I keep an extra in our emergency kit at home. I also filled a little vial to keep on hand in the car & in my purse, instead of the alcohol-based brands that don't have moisturizer built into their products. The scent of this product is less overpowering, as well. Fast S&H, item in new, sealed condition.
