Cure key dry areas on your body with Retrospect’s Feet, Knees & Elbows.

Retrospect

Birchbox Breakdown

Breaking a nail is never the tragedy depicted by certain female stereotypes, but there’s no doubt that it’s a mani-wrecking nuisance. Whether you consider yourself a girly girl or are more of a beauty minimalist, you can cut down on the chances of ending up with weak nails (and dry hands) with this targeted treatment. Made with patented keratin protein, the scentless cream comes in a luxe jar.

How it Works

We’d be loathe to give up our manicures anytime soon, but we’re well aware that our polish addiction has the unintended side effect of wearing down our nails. Key ingredient Replicine™ Functional Keratin© is a peptide-rich compound that makes brittle nails healthier, which means less splitting over time. The top-notch treatment also mends cracked cuticles and skin—plus, it’s free of synthetic fragrances, parabens, and other potential irritants.

How to Use

Rub a quarter-sized amount into hands and nails. Repeat as often as necessary.

Water, Cetearyl Alcohol, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Hydrolyzed Keratin, Glycerin, Ceteareth-20, Di-PPG-3 Myristyl Ether Adipate, Anthemis Nobilis Flower Oil, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Leaf Extract, Behentrimonium Methosulfate, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Fragrance.

Great for manicures

I had a spa party and this sample was a hit when we did makeovers. It makes your skin very soft and rejuvenated

Intense relief

Loved this treatment for dry, chapped hands and damaged nails. Did not have to reapply as frequently as other lotions/hand treatments. Also loved that it is fragrance-free.

Nice hand cream

This was a nice product - it was moisturizing, but it didn't last as long as other products I have used. I'm not a fan of the sample packaging either - feels like I don't get as much product out of it.

Great hand & nail moisturizer! I love the immediate softening to both the hands & nails. It's fairly long lasting too!!

Decent product, but I prefer others
Sampled

I have so many lotions and moisturizers, but none specifically for hands/nails/cuticles. First of all, I hate this type of sample packaging (foil packet with tear off). It's so messy! I liked the texture of the cream, but it didn't dry fast enough and left my hands greasy. And beyond that, I don't think it lasted very long. Probably why they suggest applying 3-4 times a day? Umm, no thanks!

Fabulous

The price may keep me away from this product, but it does really work! Made my hands soft and I think would make my nails strong if used continuously.

nice neutral lotion

I'm not sure it's any better than the hand lotions out there. I appreciate that it isn't greasy.
