LOVE!

It smells lemony and fresh, and it helped soften up my cuticles. I keep it by my bed and use it at night, and after about a week , my nails looked healthier and my cuticles weren't so nasty.

perfect for winter hands

I got the lavender. At first I thought it was extremely greasy but then I saw how great it worked. Its now a staple to put on before going to bed.

Effective and Great Smelling

This salve was wonderfully moisturizing and smoothed my hands out immediately. The smell, lavender, was delicious and fresh, and the size is perfect for a purse. My one problem with it is not unique to this salve, every salve I use is a bit too greasy for my taste. I have to remember to wait for it to soak in and not to touch my face.

Like this a lot

The smell is hands down amazing. I would gladly smell this scent 24/7. This goes on nice and moisturizes skin. My one complaint is that it is a pretty oily formula and doesn't absorb as quickly as I would like. You'll have to factor in some air-dry time when you apply. However, it is well worth it for me because the smell is so good. I've had this product for over a year and I love it. It's a nice change from regular old skin lotion. Not to mention nice and compact.

Very emollient great balm for the parched winter hands

Love the tin format that makes it very easy to carry in purse so that I actually use it. Nice fragrance and appreciate the natural ingredients. Absorbs nicely, leaving hands fresh smelling and soft.

Exceptional TLC for winter hands.
Purchased

This hand and cuticle salve is a winter staple for me! I can't go a night without slathering it on to my hands and cuticles. When I wake up in the morning my hands are good as new, since the salve had all night to works it's magic!

Lavender smells.good
Purchased

Even though it smells good I wasnt happy with the product container. I cant open it without making a mess. I can only use this product before going to bed because it is oily. I do like how it feels on feet.

Great night time treatment
Purchased

While this product is a little oily when you first put it on, it really soaks in and nourishes. I use it at night before bed.

It feels like lip salve

It has a nice smell, but it's easier to just put lotion on my hands and cuticles. I did not notice any real difference in using the sample size on my cuticles, so I probably won't buy the full size.
