I was very skeptical that this cream would perform as described. Because of a genetic medical condition, I have very fragile, sensitive, itchy skin. The effects were very subtle at first but after using an entire tube, I saw a noticeable improvement in the skin on my arms where I was using this. The texture improved, the resilience of the skin improved, and all rashes resolved. It is pricey, but I just use it and problem areas and so it lasts a reasonable amount of time.
