They are both great, but my husband prefers the Jack Black. The L'Occitane is very perfumed which he doesn't care for.

Better for me. Smells medicinal but L'Occ smells like diapers so it's 6 to 1... 1/2 dozen the other.

I use to use L'Occitane hand cream exclusively until I tried this. Although I love the scents of L'Occitane, this product worked better for my dry hands for a longer period of time and it is less greasy. I sometimes found the L'Occitane to be a bit greasy. Ask for a sample of this at your local Sephora or choose it as a sample option online when placing an order, as they have offered it quite a bit over the past year. Hope that helps!

This might be a little better... I bought some of this for my husband along with the L'Occitane for myself, and although I like the scent of that one better, I found I ended up using more of hubby's hand cream than mine! This works wonders on my husband's outdoor-working paws, so it was fantastic for my water-chapped skin. Not greasy at all. It's really a toss-up: they are both great. Hope this helps..?

The eucalyptus scent is very strong. I would avoid using it in a healthcare setting, or really any work setting where other people may be sensitive to strong smells.

it does a good job holding up thru repeated washings but like any product you do need to reapply. I like the non- greasy feel of this. I keep it on my bedside table and apply it right before I go to sleep. By the morning my hands are soft and feeling good.

It works well, but you will probably have to apply it at least 3 times a day in winter esp. Put it on at night too. It does seem to last through a few handwashes.

Not only am I a nursing student but I'm also a mom of three with two little ones still in diapers, so I wash my hands alot. For me it lasts a max of two handwashings but I love to apply it so sometimes I don't even wait that long.
A big key to helping the hand healer help you is by really working it into your skin so that it pentrates and doesn't just sit on the surface.

No, it washes off pretty easily. Because of the price I wouldn't suggest it as a good option, you would have to apply it after every wash.

I work in the health industry as well and I find that it is not as moisturizing as I would like it to be, especially for those that frequently wash hands. It is also slightly greasy and not as fast-absorbing as I need it to be when I'm on the job.

Will this REALLY work on my VERY DRY hands?
The reviews are all so great...but I am still skeptical. My hands are unlike anyone's I've ever met. VERY dry...fingertips peel. I have lines all over both my palms and the backs of my hands....it's been like this since I was a kid. I'm a freak! :) Is there anyone out there with REALLY super DRY, CRACKED hands that feel this is truly worth a try?

My husband gets those painful split fingertips and he says this Jack Black cream is the best so far. He plays guitar and has to keep his hands in good condition. Jack Black is your man! Try using it at night and putting socks on your hands to help heal the skin. Weird, I know, but it works!

My hands get so dry and cracked to the point where they will bleed, especially the pads of my fingers, but this is the only product that has truly helped me. Just a day or so after using it and I can really feel a difference in my hands!

my husband and I are rock climbers and that means that we cover our hands in moisture absorbing chalk several times and week and then scrape them against rough surfaces. this is absolutely worth a try if it works for us! we also use this product: http://www.climbonproducts.com/ but it is a greasier product so I don't like using it if you have to touch something else in the near future.

Hi. I know how you feel. I developed acute dermatitis a few years back and nothing seems to permanently moisturize my skin as much as I need it to be. The doctors put me on a clobetasol cream/ointment which is the strongest product out there for those that suffer from dermatits/eczema/other severe skin conditions...and even that does not help me as much as I would like! On my worst days, my skin cracks and bleeds. In regards to Jack Black's Industrial Strength lotion, I found it to be lacking. It certainly is not the most moisturizing lotion, and I found the advertisement and description to be deceiving. As much as everyone's skin is different, since you sound like someone that has severely dry skin, I would say you can pass on this product. A product you should check out that Sephora carries is First Aid's moisturizing cream. Again, it did not solve my skin problem but it is one of the better ones out there. Hope this helps and good luck!

I wouldnt...I have 6 tattoos myself and always only applied A&D ( not the creme) or aquaphor to them when they are in the healing and peeling stages. You need to be careful with the ink and your skin.
