Greasy, Doesn't Moisturize

I tried this and I hated it. The only pro? It smells good and lemony. As soon as I put it on, it was just greasy. I had to keep going back to get enough to rub into my hands. It didn't actually soak into my hands, it felt as though it was just sitting on the surface. It was greasy and shiny. I had to wash it off after 20 minutes because it wasn't being absorbed by my hands. Even after doing this, my hands weren't any softer than before.

Greasy, greasy, greasy! Avoid it - does not absorb well and can leave greasy hand or finger marks on whatever you touch...

So oily!
Sampled

I know this product is a salve, but after applying this, my hands looked and felt like an oil slick. I couldn't touch anything for fear that I'd leave a mark on it. The smell was fresh lemon, which was fine. However, it was so greasy and it didn't soak in. I will not be purchasing this.

Greasy!!

This cuticle salve does not do it's job! I have VERY dry cuticles that peel and crack. This salve is too thin - it just doesn't moisturize enough! It is also very greasy and leaves a gross film on your hands.

greasy and stinky

I really didn't like the medicinal scent of this balm and it left my hands sticky, greasy and slick. Still have rough cuticles but now my hands smell like bug spray. DO not want.

Meh

Far too greasy for me, I'd rather just use a hand cream.

Trying to be like Burts bees

I feel like this product is trying to be like Burts Bees. I bought a travel size pack at a grocery store and was really excited. It however feels cheap, doesn't do anything for my skin or lips. The chapstick feels like I'm rubbing a candle on my lips. Way too much wax.

Drying

This salve did the opposite of what it said for me, but I also have very dry skin. It made my skin feel dry and a little itchy. I'm also very much over lavender scented products.

Not for me

I personally was not a fan of this product. It did make my hands feel great, but the smell was horrible and it lingered around.
