Having been a nail tech for over 10 years I have used my fair share of hand scrubs. The Julep Glycolic Hand Scrub is just right for removing dry dead skin. It also helps to moisturize and soften hands and cuticles. This scrub should be used sparingly. Using it daily would be too much for the skin and would cause the skin to scratch and have a need to heal. Simply scrubbing for 2 minutes and rinsing is all you need. It's a light but effective scrub. Scrub, dry hands, let sit for a minute or two and moisture with your favorite lotion. Thanks all you need to do to keep your hands soft and young. Julep Hand Scrub works but is kind of pricey. Luckily Julep offers various promotional discounts weekly. I would say it's a great scrub worth have of the suggested price. Make sure you look out for the Julep discounts to get your hands on this product. Effectiveness It has just the right mixture of moisturizers and abrasives to give your skin what it needs. Scent The scrub has more of a feminine scent. This should not be used on men.
