I am obsessed with OPI's Manicure Skin Renewal Scrub and I love that scent so I bought the Manicure Finishing Butter, hoping it would have the same refreshing citrus scent. Unfortunately it doesnt. It's a nice scent a very light licorishy scent like fennel or anise.and once it dries down it doesn't have much of a scent. I like it more as a body butter than a hand lotion because I find it actually dries out my hands, but it makes my legs feel awesome and gives them a nice shiny look. I really like the texture of this it's unlike any lotion I've used before. I also like that it has SPF 15. This stuff is super expensive, luckily a friend of mine can get salon stuff from the beauty supply stores for cheap so I only paid like 30 bucks for the HUGE bottle. If you've used OPI's skin quenchers lotions this is a lot thicker. I would buy it again, but it wouldn't be my first choice.
I received this for free after writing to OPI and asking them to open a museum.
I love most OPI products and I was expecting to love this too. But I just find it good, not spectacular. Mostly I LOVE the texture, very light and smooth and slippery. The scent is slightly herbal with a very STRONG anise scent. It's more like a body butter scent than a lotion scent, but it's whipped, not creamy or dense.
What's great about this is really only the texture because the softness and the lasting power is nil. I really felt that my hands were actually drier after using... I felt that this made them feel good but doesn't moisturize. There is a difference there. Maybe I need something heavier, but this product only softened the hand for five minutes, then wore off. Then I should have just gotten up and grabbed my Essie Smoothies since that what seems to last on me, that or the Creative Scentsations... but I will not be buying Manicure finishing butter.
It is commendable that OPI is using SPF 15 in this product but it just doesn't last. So I am not giving this rating beyond a 4, but at that, I feel it's too generous.
Fantastic lightweight, non greasy moisturizing hand lotion with SPF 15, smells nice and lite. My hands feel like velvet after its rubbed in. Not sticky or slippery. Love it-will repuchase.
