I'm an avid gardener, and my hands often get the dirt embedded in the skin. So far, the only way I could clean that was a good scrubbing with mild soap (or baby shampoo) and a nail brush. Hoping the "loofah soap" will be a one-step, effective remedy, I ordered the soap and the hand cream. Both, sadly, not what I expected. The soap actually dries my hands even more, leaves a film, and stinks like a very masculine cologne. The smell is NOTHING like "mint"; it is strong, gross, and does not go away. Same for the cream. Both ended up in the garbage.
