Love! Perfect in dry CO

Right before I opened my Birchbox I was thinking about how dry my cuticles and hands were - I was thrilled to find this in the box and it worked beautifully! It seems oily at first but absorbs nicely and I love the smell!

works like a charm

The product works great and left my skin silky and smooth after a bit of time. At first it goes on a bit greasy, but absorbs quickly.

I used this product by rubbing it on my nails/cuticles. It softened the area and lessened my cracked skin but I probably won't purchase it because I find it too tedious to apply.

nice salve

This is a nice salve and comes in cute packaging, though the lid is kind of hard to pull off in the sample size. It's more thin and oily than creamy, and soaks in to dry skin pretty well. The lavender smell is really nice. It also kept my dry knuckles soft for a while after applying.

I don't have dry hands so this product didn't get the chance to improve any dryness on me. I gave it to my mom to try since she has drier hands and she loved it! She won't let me have the sample back. Only complaint is the packaging... it's extremely obnoxious to open!

nice!

My cuticals are very dry, and I feel like I am constantly putting on lotion, vitamin e oil, or something for my hands and nails. I really like this product, and it does a good job of moisturizing for a long lasting effect. Very good sample size too. Smells nice. Kind of difficult to get the top on/off, especially with greasy fingers.

So soft!

I already wrote a review for this product but had to come back to say that while my cuticles don't ever really have problems, my moms are very dry and crusty feeling. I decided to put some of this on her when I did her nails today and WOAH was there a difference! They went from looking completely dry to completely hydrated and soft looking. As with me the oily effect it gives your fingers goes away after a couple minutes. The only down side was that she didn't like the lemon scent (which was one of the things I liked most about it) I will definitely buy her some of her own for mother's day!

Just a touch and you can moisten all your cuticles. my cuticles we beginning to get dry and peel. i used this just to see and noticed immediate results. so i used some more the next day and the peeling has stopped and my cuticles are nourished. im seriously impressed.
