Love it!

I ordered this in the lavender scent and it is amazing! I've always used Burt's Bees cuticle salve but saw this so I thought I would try it out. It works great! And it soaked in to my hands very quickly. Def a re purchase!

Greasy - but worked

I agree with others that it was greasy. A little goes a long way! But it did seem like it helped the dry, chapped skin I had on my hands from the winter.

Cuticles still look and feel the same
Purchased

The lavender smell was a bit over powering. I should have went with lemon. I didn't really care for the product. My cuticles feel the same. I could have used a hand lotion to soften my cuticles. It felt greasy, and again the smell was overpowering.

This is awesome. The winter was VERY cold and the salve worked very well! The large size will last me several seasons- great buy.

Saved my hands!
Purchased

I've been using the Foot Repair Salve made by JR Watkins for over a year and loved it, but I never tried the cuticle salve until recently. Having just moved to Ohio in the middle of winter, this salve saved my poor cuticles! After just a few days in the cold weather my hands were very dry and my cuticles were so dry they were painful. I ordered this salve with the lavender scent, and it brought my hands back to life. I applied it 2-3 times a day and saw a noticeable difference within 2 days. Love this stuff!

Works well, a little greasy
Purchased

I do a lot of gardening and other work with my hands and they show it. I bought a tin of this to keep by the kitchen sink. It goes on a little greasy and stays that way until it sinks in -- about 5 minutes, but it does its job, with a light, pleasant scent. Keeps my hands from feeling dry and chapped and it makes unpolished nails look good too.

You will want to EAT IT!

Love the product!!!! It's wonderful! The lemon is very yummy smelling. I've bought this several times. I wish it came in a bigger size! I use it all the time! Perfect for winter.

Good stuff
Purchased

I recently ordered this to help combat dry skin from the winter. My hands get so bad and I wanted to bring them back to life. I love J.R. Watkins hand soap in the lemon so I decided to buy the lemon version of this. For the most part I think it works great. It does warn you on the label not to put this on right before doing something with your hands because they remain a little oily while it soaks into your skin. It leaves my hands feeling nice and soft afterwards. I have used it repeatedly for a week and I am finding that it really only masks the problem right now and isn't doing much to really rehydrate my skin. I am hoping that my hands are just that dry and if I give it more time of using it consistently then it will get better.

Awesome.

I cannot rave enough about how fantastic this product is for cuticles. In the winter months, my hands are dry, dry, dry. Putting just a bit of this product on my hands has helped keep my hands in working order in the cold. Just a little dab of this product on my fingers has done wonderful things for me. Highly recommend.
