Decent product, but I prefer others
Sampled

I have so many lotions and moisturizers, but none specifically for hands/nails/cuticles. First of all, I hate this type of sample packaging (foil packet with tear off). It's so messy! I liked the texture of the cream, but it didn't dry fast enough and left my hands greasy. And beyond that, I don't think it lasted very long. Probably why they suggest applying 3-4 times a day? Umm, no thanks!

I don't have a need for lotion or cream. Was thick.

I love this hand cream. It's smooth and soaks in nicely, plus it smells divine!

Fabulous

The price may keep me away from this product, but it does really work! Made my hands soft and I think would make my nails strong if used continuously.

nice neutral lotion

I'm not sure it's any better than the hand lotions out there. I appreciate that it isn't greasy.

Just Okay

This is a nice hand cream but I can't say that it stands out enough for me to want to buy it. I'm not a fan of the feel of lotion on my hands - I just feel like it never really dries, so I usually only wear it at night unless I really need it. Not something I would spend a ton of money on and will likely just stick with drugstore brands.

Good, but not great

This is a good hand/cuticle cream, but I don't love it for the price.

Nice, but doesn't last
Sampled

I really liked the texture of this hand and nail cream. It was thick and luxurious and not too greasy. I put it on my hands each morning before walking out the door. I live in Chicago and right now it is so cold and dry so it feels nice on my dry skin and it doesn't burn when my hands are cracked so that is a plus!

However, I didn't think that the moisture lasted. I felt like I would have to reapply multiple times a day so that was disappointing. I also didn't notice a difference in my cuticles or nails after using the samples for almost 2 weeks.

3-4 times a day?
Sampled

3-4 times a day, who has time for that? This helped with my dry winter hands but I guess I was somewhat distracted by the instructions, which I believe indicate that you should use this particular moisturizer 3 or 4 times daily. I barely have enough time to think about once so I suppose I'll pass if this product is effective only if used 3 to 4 times daily.
