UPDATE: WOULD NOT CONSIDER DUE TO ANIMAL TESTING FOR CHINESE MARKET 17/02/2012 For such an inexpensive product, it does a very good job. The tube is very convenient. You do have to be careful about how long you leave the gel on your nails, that is the reason I gave it a 4. After use, wash your hands and use a nail brush. Definitely worth a try.
I purchased a 15ml tube for $1.99 on sale. You apply a small amount around the cuticle and massage in, then rinse off after 15 seconds. It does help to remove dry cuticle skin. Do not leave it on longer than 30-60 seconds or it can burn skin and nails. It really works well on my feet where the cuticles are thicker and drier.
