I find this lotion very moisturizing to my hands who suffer from red dry patches and cracking in the winter time. The name given for this lotion is no lie because I really do find that It's also a great help for maintaining healthy and nurtured nails. I apply this lotion every night before bed and my dry patches little by little went away and have not came back since my hands feel very soft and my nails that tend to be weak seem to be getting better slowly but surely. Although I am not crazy about the smell it doesn't linger around. It's a very fast absorbing non greasy formula so the scent goes away quickly. All in all a very good lotion that I would highly recommend. And btw, I almost forgot to mention that the price is not to bad either so that's definitely another bonus=>
I've found this on sale at local pharmacy and gave it a try as I usually use Jurlique / L'occitane as my staple. However, I didn't really like it. After applying, it leaves a yellow-ish tone on tips of my finger nails. As soon I stop using it for a day, my nails would turn back into normal tone. I've tried this a number of time so pretty sure it's to do with this handcream.
Other than that, it's provides an average moisturser on my hands. I would still prefer Jurlique for the lasting effect.
Amazing! I love this handcream. Tried my friend's one a few days ago and its just fab! Now rushing to buy one for myself. It soaked in in 20 seconds and was super moisturising. I have tried many handcreams including L'occitane and Clarins which to date were my favourite but this is now my top handcream. Also cute marketing with the horse theme.
I love this hand lotion.
It's not greasy at all and absorbs in under 30s. It has been able to keep my hands and nails healthy during the frigid winter months and it smells lovely.
Was sent this as a gift-with-purchase with some nail polish I bought online. I first noticed that this lotion does not contain mineral oil, a cheap cosmetic filler that does nothing for the skin and only serves to make the skin feel softer until it's washed off. It does contain glycerin, another cheap cosmetic filler that sits on the skin and doesn't do much but it doesn't contain enough to create the little rubbed-off bits that one finds with heavier glycerin-based hand lotions.
This lotion has a medium consistency and soaks very quickly into the skin. It smells a bit like Johnson's Baby Lotion, which I don't love, but the scent doesn't last long and the benefit from this lotion far outweighs that one issue. I wash my hands frequently and this lotion is my go-to afterwards! I haven't noticed any significant change in my nail condition but my nails are already in decent shape. I use this specifically as a hand moisturizer and in that capacity I find it more than acceptable. I have the 6oz tube and I haven't found the packaging difficult to manipulate but it's not a size I would slip into my handbag; I would transfer some product into a much smaller bottle. The tube packaging makes this easy to do.
I'm giving this four stars because of the fragrance and because it does contain glycerin. Otherwise, it's a great hand lotion, soaks in quickly and leaves a non-greasy finish.
**The trick to this product is to put a lot on your nails and take a few seconds for each nail and deeply message it into the nail!** I am in love with this product, not only does it work great on your horse's hooves but also my hands. I have very dry skin, every time my hands touch water I MUST apply lotion after. I bought this lotion because I never heard of a lotion that was great for your nails as well. I gave it a try and my nails are very weak, and I saw great results. It didnt turn my nails into hard rocks, but they did indeed improve (Which is why I only rated it a 4). They grow faster, and come in nicer which is what I wanted. usually they break and come in uneven, but now they come in nice and round and a little bit harder. For the price (7.99) I bought the 32 oz bottle with a pump, and man was it worth it! I went to my local beauty store and bought a bunch of tiny 3 oz bottles and filled them all with this lotion, (thanks to the pump!), and still didnt even make a dent in my huge bottle of lotion. I keep one in my desk, in my bag, in my bathroom, and I gave the rest to family/friends! Even if you dont see any difference in the nails its a great mositurizer, I am a receptionist and I apply it all the time and its great because I have to answer the phones/type/etc. and I can't have greasy hands and this absorbs very quickly so I dont have to worry about letting them dry before I go back to typing or answering the phones! Seriously, go for the 32 oz and fill little bottles (.50 cents each) with this lotion! Im going to apply some right now! BTW go onto the main n tail website and you can order it there, for 7.99!! I believe it is something like wintercreekstore.com! Just google main n tail and go to their website!
I wanted something to prevent air bubbles and peeling nails, but this wasn't it. I've been using this every morning for over 2 weeks and my nails are still peeling.
Otherwise, it is a good hand lotion, it soaks into my skin fast and has a faint pleasant scent.
I've been using this for a year now and I love it! I hate hand creams that linger and make it impossible to touch anything for half an hour without leaving a grease print. This formula absorbs quickly and without residue. I use it in conjunction with Hard as Hoof nail strengthener and my nails have never been this strong. It also is great for keeping my hands soft. My knuckles crack easily during the winter (despite frequent usage of lotion) and this year, with this lotion, I had no problems. My hands look and feel great! I'm recommending this to everyone I know!
Swear by it been using it for 15 years since my mom in law turned me on to it. You can get it at ross also sometimes for 3.99
After using it for weeks the nails will break off in chunks due to hardness rather than peeling & flaking. If you forgot to use it for a couple weeks, the nails go back to their old condition.
Oh how I love this product!! I am a pet groomer and my hands are in water a lot during the day bathing dogs. Typically in the past, this has resulted in my hands becoming very dry to the point of cracking. I also have problems with my nails peeling and breaking due to dryness. Hoofmaker has kept my hands soft, with strong nails that don't peel and rarely break. It also is unique in that it doesn't feel greasy. Most hand creams and lotions leave a sticky, greasy feel, but Hoofmaker does not. I always have a tube in my purse, along with a tube at my desk at home and in my bathroom. I like the 6oz tubes from Sally's, but you can also get this product from drsfostersmith.com in a 32oz bottle with a pump for $7.99 (marketed and packaged for horses.)
