Strongest points
Spa-like fragrance, trusted brand, widely available, deeply nourishing to dry skin.
Weakest points
Expensive product, metal tube gets battered and damaged easily if you carry it in your bag.
Summary
The product is presented in a retro metal tube, which suggests luxury but which I find a little impractical if you want to carry it around in your make up bag. I stopped carrying mine after I noticed that the tube was becoming quite bashed about, as I didn't want it to split and ooze in my bag. Now it sits neatly by my bathroom sink, perched on its cap, which I think is a great design as it doesn't require much space and looks good on display. The price of the product is quite high, probably nice as a gift, but it certainly costs more than many family brands.

The product itself squeezes easily and has a slightly waxy consistency, a small amount is enough to offer complete nourishment and repair to the ravages of gardening. My skin felt deeply moisturised and renovated after using the cream. As mentioned by Bougheyrm, the product does tend to slide around on the hands for a long time and I found myself extending the moisturisation up my forearms and then blotting the excess. A good product if you are seeking some intensive treatment to combat very dry or chapped skin and would probably work well on cracked heels due to the waxy nature of the product but be careful not to break your neck after application!

Strongest points
It does produce a nice smooth skin feeling but...
Weakest points
... its stays on the surface of the skin for too long.
Summary
Although I mark this as one I wouldn't recommend this is only because it's too rich for my skin. The product is actually a very good therapy and especially useful in colder and worse weather conditions. The scent is quite definite and it stays on the skin for a long time, not unpleasant at all but a little intrusive.

Whilst it does produce a smooth skin I found it greasy and a little uncomfortable in the long term (it seems to leave a skin on top of the skin rather than absorbing in. Overall okay and not too pricy for the amount you use but not one I'd want to use long term.
