So I wanted to share my new favorite hand cream. It is by Vaseline and it is labeled to make "nails 10x stronger in 2 weeks". So I bought it to give it a try. Anything to make my nails stronger, and it was less than $4 at Wal-Mart.
I have been using it for about 3 weeks now, exclusively. I haven't been using any other nail strengtheners at all. I have to say that I think it is working! My nails haven't peeled or broke this entire time that I've been using it. The tips of my nails are a lot thicker. They used to be thin and translucent and simple things like running my fingers through my hair would cause them to split.
The smell might bother some people. It is a bit strong and smells like
flowers. It is definitely a fake floral smell, not a real one. I kind of
like it. It doesn't linger, and goes away once it has absorbed into the
The formula is not greasy at all. Since it was made by Vaseline, I guess I was just expecting it to look and feel like petroleum jelly. Thankfully it is totally different. It's just a water based lotion and absorbs quickly into the skin. It is definitely moisturizing and my skin does feel a lot softer.
So I'm pretty happy with my purchase of this hand and nail lotion. I'm almost done with this little 3 oz. bottle and already purchased a back up!
