Texture issues

I wasn't impressed with this product, especially given the high price. I was expecting it to really make a difference with my dry hands and dry nails, and it did not. The texture of the cream is very odd. (It's almost liquid.) The cream does not rub/blend very well and once I've applied it, my hands feel sticky.

Very Disappointing

So sad that I invested this much money in a description of a product. I have used most of the container and have seen none of the wonderful results I was supposed to experience. If anything, it dries out my skin more than helping the condition. And as far as helping your nails grow, my cuticles became so unmanageable it was ridiculous. It's hard to explain how torn and painful they became. I would love to return it but afraid I have had it too long to try.

Great Product!

I took a chance on this product since the reviews were so positive. I am so happy I did. I have dry hands and paper thin nails that snag and rip especially in the winter. I've been using this product for about one week with applying twice a day once in the morning and before I go to bed. I have really noticed a difference in my nails and my hands are so soft. I'm thinking of purchasing a couple for Christmas gifts!

I really love this product. It makes my hands and fingers feel refreshed. Especially since i am a hairdresser and use my hands regularly, so using this cream has help keep my fingers feeling fresh and moisturized.
