great hand & cuticle salve

This hand salve is a multi tasker for dry hands and ragged cuticles. It has a pleasant lemon scent and penetrates deeply to moisturize. It is especially helpful in winter-put it on at night with some cotton gloves for major hand therapy.

My salve for summer

I purchased this salve (lavender scent) 3 months ago when the summer dry spell really hit my hands hard. I work in the medical field and have to wash my hands 10-30 times per day. The intensity of our sanitizing soap strips my hands of moisture and is tough on my cuticles. I have been very pleased with the rejuvenation of my hands using this salve. I use it daily on dry areas and a small amount goes a long way. Great, clean, mild lavender scent. Only downside...the oily nature of the salve sticks around for a bit longer than I'd like.

Works well, smells nice, a little greasy
Purchased

I like this product for nighttime use - it works well and has a nice smell. It's greasy, though, which is the downside. I'm still in search of a hand/cuticle salve that I can put on during the day.

Works wonders and smells fantastic

This product is terrific. It appears very greasy when you first apply, but it soaks in within a few minutes. I an a lemon addict so absolutely love the lemon scent!! Just wish it was a little easier to open!

Terrific hand and cuticle salve

A little bit goes a long way; this product keeps my cuticles and nails moisturized. I have tried the lavender, but plan to buy the other fragrances as well and keep one of them in my desk, handbag, and dressing table.

Absolutely the Best

My cuticles get incredibly dry, and I have tried everything. Hands down, this is the best remedy I've tried! I love the lemon scent, but I imagine the others are fantastic, too. It feels so natural and soft, and my hands look great for the rest of the day! Super reasonably priced, too!

Good salve

If you like salve you will like. I got this as a sample. It smells like lemon ...kind of furniture cleaner lemon more than anatural but still pleasant. It it thick and good salve. I tend to shy away from salves due to greasy. I only use in the coldest months of winter(when my skin is dry as a desert) occasionally and before bed when I am not touching anything. I dropped this on my keyboard open while smelling and it took three wipes to get off just from barely touching and still see a smudge. ALL salve is greasy to me but this is the best I have seen in awhile

use it almost daily
Sampled

I use this almost daily. I keep it at my desk at work and rub it on my cuticles. My cuticles get very hard and dry so I'll use this after putting lotion on my hands. It is greasy but that doesn't bother me; I know some people hate the feeling of something greasy on their hands. I don't rub this on my entire hand because it would probably be too greasy to start typing at work right after using it without getting my keyboard greasy so I stick to my cuticles.

Too Oily and Scent is Offensive
Purchased

I have found this salve to be too oily and smelly. I put it on at night and can smell it all night. I guess I need to find gloves to wear while I have it on so the smell doesn't wake me during the night.
