I’ve had dry hands since I can remember. Not dry, SUPER dry. Raising a baby requires washing hands often , all the chores around the house (even if you wear gloves), and on top of that just add terrible Chicago winters with freezing temperatures, strong winds and indoor heating – even if you naturally do not have dry hands you are stet up for a dry hand/cuticles disaster.
I am glad that I did find amazing hand cream that really helps me – L’occitane shea butter hand cream but it’s not enough for me cuticles who need serious help.
I have no idea why I’ve never before tried Creme abricot. I assume it’s because of the price? Anyway I was convinced by Malo prase that I need this and that I will love it. I have to listen to her, just look at her nails! What a perfection!
Amazing thing about Creme Abricot is that it’s been around 1963!! That’s not seen often in beauty industry and certainly means there is some serious quality behind the product.
I apply it nightly on my cuticles and as you we’ll see in the photos below I apply a lot 🙂 No spearing here. It takes a while to soak in, but I do not mind. Definitely it’t not a product you’ll use before you need to get dressed or running to work. It really does miracles and helps my skin around the nails look decent. Although results are temporary if I do not use it every single day or sometimes twice a day. As soon as I skip one day I am back to old dry cracked cuticles.
Texture is very thick and little goes a long way. It feels super sticky, goopy and sticks to your skin like crazy. Pot looks small but since you need such a tiny amount I am sure this will last a looooong time. Smell is wonderful too, sweet but not overwhelming.
