Smells amazing, great product

I have dry skin and I loved this cuticle salve the moment I tried it. The lavender smells wonderful, and I like the soft not-waxy texture of the salve itself. The softness of it feels much nicer than some really hard, too-thick salves I've tried in the past.

It soaked into my skin quickly and my hands and cuticles look so soft and healthy today! I would definitely recommend this to anyone with dry skin, or even just dry cuticles specifically. It's a really nice product. I'm planning to buy some for a friend as a part of her Christmas gift.

This is great for the hands and cuticles. Yes, a little greasy, but the product does state to use in the evening. Wake up and your hands feel wonderful.

Great Salve

My hands and cuticles get so dry especially during the colder weather. The little tin is a perfect size to carry in my purse and the texture is smooth. It doesn't leave my hands oily after I apply it and it smells great. Will definitely purchase a larger size.

Love the scent

I adore the lavender scent of this. The salve absorbs almost instantly into my skin and leaves my hands feeling so soft. Great product.

Love this stuff for my hands! I work at Starbucks dealing with washing my hands constantly, cleaning with sanitizer and other products, so I need powerful stuff to keep my hands from cracking and bleeding when they are too dry. This cures all of it. My boyfriend also uses it too for his hands after he works out!

Okay, but...

Really wanted to like this hand/cuticle moisturizer. Unfortunately, it takes a long time for the oils to dry on your hands (to the manufacturers positive they did state this). Ultimately, I could not get over the smell, which was not to my liking. It was too strong. I normally like lavender scents, but not this time. Needs to be toned down a bit.

This salve smells great and is super moisturizing. i just use it on my cuticles, which are dry, and they are back to normal in a day. put this stuff on your feet with socks before you go to bed and the next day they will be SO SOFT.

great for dry hands!!
Purchased

I've always struggled with dry hands, especially in the winter. This salve is amazing! My hands love how soft this salve leaves them and I love the excellent lemon fragrance. The only drawback is it does take a little time to soak in the oils, but it warns of that on the packaging and advises of the best time to use. I want to buy another to keep one at work and one at home now. It works SO well!

literally all purpose

I've lived in the upper midwest my whole life and around here, Watkins is a very familiar brand. From beauty products to cooking ingredients, Watkins sells it all. (Seriously, their vanilla extract is the best you can buy!)
They have several "balm" type products, this one, a foot one and a couple of medicated kinds. Watkins is good for man and beast alike! (seriously, they have a carbolic salve that farmers have been using on cow's udders and skin hot spots for DECADES! ..and when it's not treating your animals it's in high demand in the farm house too! for everything from heat rash to boils to cuts and dry skin!) And, good for so many things. This salve can be used on literally any part of your body that needs some extreme moisture related help. From hands, to elbows, to knees and toes, this product will help keep your skin in wonderful shape!
This product works quickly, smells nice and is absolutely worth the price. Get some and just wait to see how many different uses you come up with for it!
