I love this stuff! Some stats for comparison purposes: 39, Caucasian, cold climate, skin starting to show signs of age. I've tried so many lotions, moisturizers, balms on my hands which I wash very often. None last very long and my skin looks dehydrated and wrinkly soon after application. Can't be actual dehydration since I drink copious amounts of water daily. I tried this balm and have since bought 3 containers, it feels light, non greasy, and my hands look and feel moist. A little does go a long way - I use slightly more than a pea size each time.
