This hand cream has a beautifully smooth, emollient texture that works great to make dry, rough hands feel and look immensely better. Most of the plant extracts it contains are helpful for skin, but some (e.g., Coleus forskohlii) are potentially problematic. Lauder also included gold in this hand cream, but it and other precious metals are known to cause contact dermatitis, and gold doesn’t convey any benefit to skin. On balance, this hand cream contains many more beneficial ingredients than troublesome ones, and deserves consideration if you don’t mind spending more than necessary to treat dryness. Some of the plant ingredients have the potential to lighten skin discolorations, but only if you pair this hand cream with a sunscreen rated SPF 15 or greater that contains the right UVA-protecting ingredients.

Brand Overview

Estee Lauder At-A-Glance

The history of Estee Lauder goes back to 1946, when the woman who created the brand (and for whom it is named) began selling creams and lotions made by her chemist uncle. From its humble beginnings, Estee Lauder has grown to become a multibillion-dollar company whose products are sold all over the world and advertised in just about every fashion and women's lifestyle magazine available.

The biggest compliment we can pay to the venerable Estee Lauder line is that their moisturizers and serums can largely be described as state-of-the-art. Though fragrance is often intrusive, but when it comes to formulary excellence culminating in products that give skin what it needs to function optimally, they are tough to beat.

When it comes to makeup, by and large the brand also exceeds expectations. Though there are some under-performing products (you can read more about them in our individual reviews), Lauder has a number of excellent options, most notably its lip colors.
