This has worked so well for me! I live in southern Germany where winters can get quite cold and dry, It's great on cuticles, definitely. Much better than any cuticle oils or creams I've used in the past. I massage it in before going to bed a few nights a week and it keep them supple. Also works well on dry feet, elbows and in a pinch as a lip balm. It is a very thick cream so it's not meant for use as a regular, everyday moisturizer. If you want something light that absorbs right into your skin, this is not it. I like the fragrance, but it's a bit overpowering at times.
Expensive, but since I have almond-shaped eyes it works very well with my eye shape. No pinching issues, very comfortable and easy for me to use. I've had mine for about 6 years with no problems. Only downside is the replacement pads seem hard to find.
This is also a perfect topcoat to use if you like doing nail stamping. It doesn't smudge the designs like some other TC's can, even if your nails are already dry. And of course it also seals in and smooths polish beautifully, dries quickly and maintains a beautiful shine for days. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because of the shrinkage other people have mentioned (the thin gaps you can see at the tips or on the sides after it dries). It can be avoided if you make sure to cover the full area that's polished and also if you "wrap" the tips with a bit of the topcoat. When I make sure to do this the shrinkage isn't an issue, but it just means you have to be a bit more careful applying the topcoat rather than just slapping it on. I'm a kindergarten teacher and because I have to wash my hands frequently, sometimes use my nails as tools in a pinch and generally put more wear and tear on my hands than a desk job, this TC has extended the life of my manis from 2 days to a full week typically. I also like that because it dries quickly to a hard shine, I can polish my nails in the evening and even if I go to bed a half hour later I don't end up with nicks or sheet marks on my nails; they still look shiny and freshly polished when I wake up.
