    You can’t imagine how helpful this article is for me! I always suffer from the skin dryness, especially in winter. Of course, I used different hand creams and they were quite effective, but this one seems better to me, maybe because I exactly know its composition.

  2. Elizabet 09 November 2013 :

    I agree with you, but I wonder if it is suitable to spread over the legs, for instance, because not only hands need moistening.

  3. Laura 27 November 2013 :

    Yes, that’s important, and I think it doesn’t matter on which place you spread it,the main thing is that this place should be clean and dry.
