I love this product! My cuticles have been horrible for years,despite using lotions and oils specifically designed for nails and cuticles. I have always had great nails and kept them constantly polished, but in the past year they've been splitting and peeling. I now smooth and buff my nails, and apply OPI Avoplex at night, before I go to sleep, and my nails have never been better. Stronger, healthier looking and finally growing again. I wear surgical gloves all day at work with strong surgical alcohol-based lotion under the gloves, and only since using this product have I been able to get my nails to grow again. Be consistent, apply to bare nails when you aren't going to be washing your hands, and in a couple of months you will notice results. It lasts a very long time because a little goes a long way, and I would certainly buy it again and at any price because I know it works and the money spent is worth it. I've wasted lots of money on cheaper products that just don't work. BTW, I don't use OPI nail polish, I don't think that's worth the money. I can do a manicure that lasts (until I get bored with the colour or it starts to grow out) with other less-expensive polishes.
I really like this product. It smells lovely and feels nice to apply. I use only a tiny amount every morning and evening. My hands are very problematic as I'm a rower and constantly expose them to cold, wet and friction! I use this product on the calluses I get from rowing as well and it keeps them from cracking.
This is just okay for me. It smells nice. The bottle (at least for me and I use it 2x/day) has lasted for a long time (maybe 9 months-ish? and it is still over 1/2 full) I have used other cuticle treatments before (Avon and Sally Hanson) that did a better job. The oil does go on greasy (durrr, as most oils do) and I do find that if I rub it in well the greasiness subsides after a few minutes and then it doesn't bother me. I got this particular OPI thing as a gift, but I love OPI and have several polishes, so I know the price range. I am probably not gonna spend the extra money on this when it's gone. But it's fine to use until then.
I purchased the Avoplex cuticle oil by OPI in a two for one package. I expected the treatment to smell strong and I was definitely surprised because the scent is so lovely! That being said, I find this product to do exactly what it's meant to do although I do recommend to soak your nails in hot water prior to using the treatment so your skin is extra soft!
I give my hands a lot of abuse (working in lab, wearing gloves all day, cooking, drumming, gardening etc) so needless to say cuticles are my enemy. This product my sister swears by it and sort of made me buy it when we went shopping. Personally I don't think it's as magical as my sister claims. It absorbs slowly, it feels greasy, and the effect is not very noticeable unless you use it everyday. I do really like the smell though!
Having recently taken up rock climbing in a cold climate with very dry air, my cuticles, which were never a problem before, quickly became shredded and torn and skin also began to peel away in small strips a few milimetres below the cuticle (painful AND unsightly).
Using Avoplex Oil twice daily (for only two days so far) has already healed the torn skin and has softened my cuticles so that they are no longer dry, hard and white with obvious tears in them. My cuticles lie flat and are barely noticable - I can't wait to start painting my nails again :)
Highly effective product with a light, pleasant fragrance. Certainly on the pricey side, but can be used sparingly once initial problems are addressed.
This is one of my favorite products ever and I've been using it for years. As I wear medical gloves every day my hands tend to get very dry and damaged and this oil is a savior! It doesn't work only while it's on like most similar products do, it leaves skin looking healthy for a long time. It absorbs whithing ten minutes and smells neutraly. They should however work on a different packaging because once the bottle is almost finished it's hard to get to the rest of it with the brush (I'm talking about a larger size packaging, never had a small one).
I had very bad skin around my nails and applied this this morning and all day long and my skin is no longer dried out and cracking or peeling so that is why I am writing a review as it really helped the skin around my nails heal quickly. I love it. I will purchase this for sure- used my mothers today and am very happy my skin looks really good
This didn't do anything for me, except make my fingers and nails oily. It never absorbed at all, and I didn't notice any difference in my cuticles.
I have been using this for about 10 years. My manicurist put it on to keep from getting knicks while my nails are wet. It is alittle pricey so when I get low I add olive or emu oil to it.
