Rated 5 out of 5 by cjoy feels like nothing, but does everything
I love this hand cream. It softened and smoothed my dry, chapped, and cracked hands in about a week (I used it every time I washed my hands). It also seems to be multi-purpose... I know this product was designed just for your hands, but I tried using some on my cheeks/forehead because they were so dry. Not only did it improve complexion, it got rid of my pimples. I also occasionally get rashes on my body for no reason and even the smallest glob of this hand cream will make the rashes calm down. My skin looks and feels very soft and clean now. I think it's wonderful that the formula is so light. It feels like you have nothing on after a few minutes.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Stephanie321 Gave me prickly heat.
I have relatively sensitive skin, so I purchased this Aveeno product because I heard it was gentle and good for sensitive skin. By the second day using it, I developed severe prickly heat. The "barrier" that Aveeno is so proud of clogged my pores which caused this painful rash. My doctor instructed me to stop use immediately and wait till the rash goes away, which he said could take a while. Caused more problems than I had to begin with AND that came with a pricey ticket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Suzie27 Best hand lotion
My hands get extremely dry, rough and cracked with my line of work. I have tried countless other hand lotions and they all burned(most hand lotions have alcohol in them as a exfolliant). This lotion doesn't burn, goes on nicely,and absorbs quickly. Its not terribly greasy and works so quickly to heal my hands. It really is the best lotion. I recommend it to all my co workers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rachel Magic for my hands. EXACTLY THE SAME AS THE OLD FORMULA!
I've been using this hand cream for years and it is honestly like magic for my hands. I have tried countless other hand lotions and none come close to doing for me what this one does. It completely clears up the horrible eczema I suffer from on my hands every winter. I've looked at the ingredients and nothing stands out as the miracle worker except maybe the oatmeal, but I've tried adding colloidal oatmeal to other creams and not had the same result. This hand cream is too expensive in my opinion, doesn't last me long enough, and isn't sold where I live anymore, but with these results I'm still very, very happy.
I'd like to address some of the other negative reviews stating that the old formula in the maroon bottle was somehow "better." I am, at the moment holding an empty tube of the old maroon bottle that I found in a drawer and the new blue labled bottle. THEY ARE EXACTLY THE SAME. The ingredients are the same, the order is the same. The only change is the label. I wish I could post a picture of them side by side. Any time a company makes a change in a well loved product, even if it's merely a packaging change, people go nuts. I suppose it's like a reverse placebo effect.
So, if you have dry hands, try this cream, it's over priced, but amazing. Don't let the confused negative reviews deter you.

Rated 1 out of 5 by autobahnlady Disappointed
I loved the product in the maroon tube. The new formula is worthless. I have switched to Gold Bond. You had an excellent hand cream and changed it for whatever reason. Maybe to cut back on manufacturing cost? You lost a customer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by netsirk109 Bring back your Intense Relief Hand Cream..disappointed with the replacement!
I absolutely loved your Intense Relief Hand Cream in the maroon accented packaging. I have a little bit left of this cream and it works wonders! I did buy the skin relief hand cream in the blue accented packaging since it was all I could find and I'm completely disappointed. It does not have the silky, non-greasy feel that the maroon packaging did. The new formula washes away and does not last through a single hand washing. Wish I could still endorse your product. I had always recommended this product to my company's distribution center staff, since they work in a very dry atmosphere and get extremely dry, cracked hands. Wish I knew to stock up before you replaced it. The search continues to find a replacement cream.

This lotion works well and does not leave my hands feeling greasy. I keep some by the computer and it is great for dry skin due to winter.

Rated 4 out of 5 by dw62 good product- would like to have tried old formula
I bought a tube of Aveeno hand cream to keep in our kitchen. My husband and I both think it is great. If the old formula is so much better I would have liked to try it.

Every winter my hands get so dry they cut and they bleed. Five days of this cream, like 10 times a day, CURED COMPLETELY!!!!!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 5 stars for old product, 1 star for current product
Aveeno's Skin relief hand cream does not compare to what it replaced, Intense relief hand cream. The older product was much better. I don't know what is different about this product. I compared all the ingredients, and they are exactly the same, as the old cream. All I can say is that this product is more greasy, and it doesn't seem to last through hand washing. Very disappointed. Please bring the old formula back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Greenie Literally healed my cuticles!
I have tried just about every lotion, cream, balm, and cuticle oil out there. Nothing worked to smooth my always rough, dry, thick, ragged cuticles. I am a fan of Aveeno body wash, so I decided to give this Skin Relief Hand Cream a try. After several weeks of rubbing it into my cuticles for a couple minutes before bed every night, my cuticles are well on their way to being totally healed. I mean healed! I am telling you, I'm a woman in my early 50s who has, for as long as I can remember, been embarrassed to show my hands because of my awful cuticles. I am overjoyed! I'm not kidding when I say this is almost life-changing for me. Whatever is in this product WORKS, and I will never be without it on my nightstand and in my purse.

I just started using this lotion and love it. It rubs into my hands quickly and leaves them moisturized without leaving a greasy residue behind. I didn't use the previous formulation that the other reviewers referred to, but I think this formulation works great.

Rated 1 out of 5 by OkieOma Why oh why did you change!
Have used Intense Hand Relief for many years. It was in every room of my house, in my purse, in my car, and in my husband's car. I gave it as a hostess gift to my friends. The new stuff!!! What on earth is in it? I will never buy it again. It's like the old Coke. Why would you change perfection?

Rated 1 out of 5 by Sue Why did you change the maroon container of "Intense Relief" hand cream??????
This product does not compare to the line you discontinued. I have a long time issue of extreme dryness on my hands. I wish I had a dime for every product I tried and was always dissapointed. Then, I tried Intense Relief and could not believe the relief I felt. Now its gone... The evil of good is better; should not have changed it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Deb not worth it
For years I used Intensive Relief Hand Cream with the maroon cap and label. The very best cream ever. Now you have changed it to Skin Relief intense moisture. WHY? This is not working. I won't buy it again. It may be great for people who never used the "old" formula before but not for those of us who loved the original.. Go back to Intense Relief. Stick with a good thing. New is not always best.

Rated 1 out of 5 POOR PRODUCT REPLACEMENT
Why did Aveeno do this to a perfectly awesome cream on the market, previously known as Intense Relief overnight cream was the best, now the new replacement is the biggest disappointment

Rated 5 out of 5 by FrequentAveenouser Wonderful!
This is a great hand cream. My hands have never looked healthier. I've always had extraordinarily soft hands for a guy, but would get wind burn and dryness in the winter. This product has been a wonder this winter!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Trisha18 VERY DISAPPOINTED WITH NEW FORMULA
The old formula used in the off white/maroon tube titled "Intense Relief" was absolutely wonderdul. The new one in the off white/blue tube titled "Skin Relief" is a big disappointment and I will not purchase again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by K429 Never again !!!!
I have used the previous formula for many years and told everyone what a great product it was. NOW you up and change the formula and what a disappointment. My skin is no longer silky and it does not last through hand washing. I can no longer recommend your product. I will no longer be an Aveeno user.

Rated 5 out of 5 AMAZING!!
Working in a hospital I wash my hands frequently. They often end up dry, cracked, itchy, and sore. I am a faithful Aveeno user so thought I'd give this a go. Within two applications I could tell a difference; within one week my hands were virtually healed. I have been recommending this product to everyone at work.

Rated 1 out of 5 Not the same as before!!
This cream is nowhere near what it replaced. It does not provide the same relief as the first. I am no longer an Aveeno user, which I had been for 4 or 5 years. Its a shame.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TJS Good product but not anywhere as good as what it replaced.
The other product was much more effective at relieving irritation and the desire to scratch. The other product is Intense Relief Overnight Cream, and is much more effective. This product is better than many others, but not as good as what it replaces.
