I like this product allot because I can just use it once every few days and my cuticles still look fantastic! It really moisturizes and softens my cuticles and its not too sticky or oily so it doesn't bother me to leave it on for awhile. In my opinion it works better than just using cuticle oil.
I LOVE THIS STUFF. It is a little hard to get out of the packaging at first, but as you continue to use it, the product kind of melts and becomes creamier. I use this every night with Eucerin hand cream (the really heavy duty kind), and I've REALLY noticed a difference in my dry and all-around icky hands. As I remember, this is somewhat expensive (6 dollars?), but you can find it on sale pretty often.
This did not absorb into my cuticles at all. I picked it up because it appeared to be gluten free. It just went on as a sticky mess, never really accomplishing anything.
I'll compare this to Qtica's cuticle balm, my favorite. The Qtica softens more, even really dry, ragged cuticles - the Sally Hansen softens a lot, but not completely. The Qtica is "meltier" and easier to get out of the pot. Despite this, they both absorb about as easily. The Sally Hansen smells way better (the Qtica has a perfume-y scent I really don't care for) and costs way less (about US$6 for 0.4 oz vs. $14 for 0.25 oz). I might keep buying the Qtica just because I'm enjoying not feeling those hard ridges of skin along the edges of my nails, but the Sally Hansen is certainly an acceptable substitute.
This stuff is a Godsend during the cold, snowy winter months. If I smooth any hangnails with this before bed, they are healed the next day. Not greasy and pleasant smelling. I've found this product so helpful (and reasonably priced) any time throughout the year.
Smells OK, packaging is OK, works OK...nothing special here. I use it on occasion, but everytime I do I regret it. It's messy, greasy, and makes my nails look filmy (when they're polished. Right now I have a manicure that I paid good money for, I don't want my cuticle repair to leave them all nasty.) It just doesn't seem to absorb well, or quickly.
I'll take an easy to use cuticle pen over this gunk anyday.
I'm not a big nail person so I don't tend to use a lot of nail treatment products; however, I bite my nails all the time and after a while the skin around my nails was getting cracked and dry. I tried this and it worked really well. I put it on at night and in the morning the skin around my nails looks healthy and moisturized. It's purpose is a nail cuticle cream, but it works best for me as a skin moisturizer around my nails. Hand cream doesn't work as well around my nails so I'm glad I found this!
Meh, this product is okay. I stopped using it after a few uses. Nothing spectacular.
This works really well for me. It is more on the waxy side, but I like that it isn't greasy. I tried the Dior one and it was not only pricey but very oily and sticky cream, it doesn't absorb well at all but this is perfect. Nice apricot scent that isn't too strong. I use it just before slipping into bed and no hangnails, yayyy!!!!!
Even if this product smelled, felt, looked, and absorbed better than it does (fails abysmally at all of the above btw,) it still leaves no positive change on my cuticles, thus rendering it useless. Combined, these failures make it one of the worst products in the aisles of Walgreens--avoid it, and pick up poshe cuticle cream instead.
