I have very active lifestyle including working on a computer, swimming, exercising and running a farm. I have to keep a big tractor working and am always washing my hands. I love nail polich and keep it on for several days. When i take off the polish, I rub this cream into my nails as it keeps them from splitting and flaking. SInce I started using Caudalie Hand and Nail Cream, my chapped hands, dry cuticles, cracked finger tips and hang nails have disappeared. I love the scent & the way my hands feel. Believe me when I say I have tried nearly all the hand creams on the market and this one works the best for me.
