I've used Eight Hour Cream since I was 16 - so it's been more years than I want to think about. It's saved me from cracked lips and fingertips and kept them soft, too. I even used it on my cat when his skin would get dry. I figured if it was safe to use on my lips, it wouldn't hurt him if he licked it.
The quality of the product is just fine and this is not my first purchase of the hand protectant. That is why I decided to get ithe package as gifts for the upcoming holiday. The ONLY problem is that the price is stamped on the nicely gift- packed box!
