Surprised by all the 'average' reviews here. It's amazing stuff, I find it more effective than the Poshe or OPI exfoliating treatment. As well as doing the best cuticle minimising, it gives a clean look to the nail area and moistures well too, leaving shiny nails. I use it 3x daily. It does smell a little, but it's worth it for the superior results. Wouldn't be without it!

I really like this product. I use it at random whim throughout the week while I am at work as a cuticle cream, and also use it in place of a cuticle remover lotion when doing manicures. It has helped keep my cuticles looking pushed back and polished, as opposed to just cutting them and letting them grow in raggedy. I feel like it takes more work than I had hoped, hence why I take off a lippie, but it's still a great product. I like, not love.
I've had three 50 g tubes of this product,and it seems like the formula has changed during two times(I noticed this on the texture of the creme). I LOVED the first tube I got,since the texture was creamy/lotion-y,whereas the two others have had the texture of a petroleum/creme mix(the third tube was the most petroleum-like). I do not like that,since it doesn't spread on my cuticles well,as I like to let it sink in for about 5-10 minutes.
I will most likely buy this again,but I hope CND brings back the old formula.
People must have sensitive noses to complain about the smell..I barely smell anything with this product and once it's rubbed in I don't smell anything at all..the Smell does not linger on your fingers like some products do..cuticle eraser works great and I love this product..only complaint is the price..$11 at ulta is kinda high but I'll pay it since the product works so well..
Cnd cuticle eraser is definitely HG for me and I've been using for 4-5 years.
I apply 1-2 times per day. Just a little bit rubbed at the very base of my nail and on the cuticle. I follow with a moisturizing lotion, as I find it quite drying.
It basically minimizes the growth of the cuticle on my nail bed to almost nothing. this keeps my nails looking neater between manicures and makes the cuticle maintenance during manicures much easier.
I especially find it helpful when I've got a shellac manicure. Without intervention, my cuticles start to look bad after 3-4 days, and with a manicure that lasts 2 weeks, that's a problem! Using the cuticle eraser maintains my cuticles well enough until I get a new shellac.
This is an amazing product, but I think the trick is to use it right (ie not as the package say, haha). I apply a layer over cuticles and nails, wait for 15 minutes, and then scrub with a dry nail brush, wash with water, scrub a little more and the finish with oil. I do this a few times a weeks (when I change polish) and my cuticles have never looked better.
I use this product daily and it definitely keeps my cuticles at bay. The scent puts me off - smells like artificial oranges or something. But the product itself works. I found this at both Ulta and Beauty Secrets. Small tube lasts quite a while as you don't need much product for each nail. I typically use a small dab, rub it in, wait a couple of minutes, rub in again, and then take an orange wood stick to push the cuticle back. Many times, dissolved cuticle is removed by the orange wood stick. Then I wash with a scrub type product, and my cuticles look great!
This product is just fantastic and a brilliant timesaver. In my opinion, the key to good looking hands is soft skin around the nails. To achieve this, I had to reapply handcream at least twice a day and I hated how I had to wait for the cream to sink in before I could work with them again. This stuff solved this problem so fast within 1-2 days! It really literally erases my old dry cuticles and the hard skin around the nails and makes my hands look perfectly manicured. I am so glad I found this fast working convenient cream because I always hated how I had to redo my manicure although my nailpolish still looked alright. The return of the cuticle is over! :)
I love what this does for my cuticles!! On the other hand, I'm not too fond of the smell. To me, it smells like the Smarties candy. I never really liked that candy, so I see why I don't like it.
The price wasn't bad. I wouldn't pay the $11 at Ulta. But $5 at a supply store is a pretty good deal to me.
I didn't like the nozzle that this came with. I wish the tip was rounded off, like the Poshe cuticle cream I had.
Other than that, no complaints here! I love it. Hope this helps someone.
I do not have particularly problematic cuticles but if I do not moistirize them for just one day they get dry and become more visible. I have tried a few cuticle oils and even if I found some favourite (OPI avoplex, Jessica Pehomenon oil and Scratch Nail Food are the best ever for me!) I still am searching for something that can reduce the growth of my cuticles and the idea of an "eraser" sounded quite good to me.
Unfortunately this product has been quite a disappointment, it sinks in the cuticle quickly and I do not need to rub in for hours but it does nothing in order to reduce the appearance of cuticles or even keep them moist. I used it a couple of time with my Jessica oil and it seems to work better but I am quite sure I won't buy it again.
