I bought this product after my sister told me about it. I was curious. I've always bitten my nails and nailpolish strengtheners have never worked. I've found this cream to be really benefitial to me. My nails are growing longer, I'm not biting them now as they flake less, split less and are able to grow. The smell is quite nice, I don't mind lavender, and I began with applying morning and night. Now it's just in the evening before bed. It doesn't take long to soak in and you forget you even used it really. I would recommend this to other people who struggle to grown nails that have some strength to them.
