This product is great, cheap, and does the job.
This product is amazing! It does exactly what it says, although it takes a bit longer than 15 seconds. I put a thin line on each of my cuticles, gently push with a metal stick, and wash my hands. It takes a couple minutes at the most and does a great job. I follow up with some hand lotion and look well groomed without too much fuss on my part.
Great impulse buy.
I use this product twice weekly, when i 'do' my nails.
I put a small amount on all the fingers on one hand. Then push back with a metal cuticle stick. Then rinse with warm water and soap. I nip stray cuticles a few minutes later.
This product is especially good for the dry, thin cuticle that grows over my nails. I especially like how I don't have to soak my fingers beforehand.
I have purchased other S.Hansen products over the years & have had mostly successful experiences with the products I've purchased. However this was not one of them. Followed directions, tried it several different occasions but this one didn't "pan" out for me personally. continued >>
This a really nice product. I use it everytime I give myself a pedi and it really helps kepe my cuticles in check. There's no stinging or anything like that, and I usually leave this on for around 5 minutes. The price is great too, considering that I have been using it weekly for around a year and still have about 2/3 of the bottle left.
I don't have very bad cuticles,but I did have a few problem ones that I wanted to get rid of.I have always had good luck with Sally Hansen's procucts so I picked this one up at Wallmart for around $4.The price was not bad at all and you get alot and only need to use small amounts at a time.I just squeeze a little dab in the middle of my cuticles and spread it around the top with the end.Like I said it only takes a little to work!Within seconds I just rub them gently with soap and warm water and my fingers look alot better and feel better too!For the hard stuck on cuticles that have like "dried"to mynail I just get a cuticle pusher and push them gently back.Over all this product lives up to its name just like all the other Sally Hansen procucts do!
Sally Hansen Instant Cuticle Remover is a gorgeous product that keeps cuticles in check. I really like the cute packaging - light blue squeeze bottle - with quite a lot of product that will last ages! With my experience, I feel that if you have very ragged, dry, very overgrown cuticles, this wouldn't be strong enough in my opinion. On my fairly neat cuticles, this just keeps them in check by preventing them from looking dry and ragged. This removes the excess cuticle, leaving them moisturised and looking healthy. It's simple to just squeeze around the whole nail bed and cuticle and wait for it to work its wonders. I wait for about a minute or so, then gently push it back and remove with a wet, soapy nailbrush by softly scrubbing. I then apply hand cream to really keep my hands soft and moisturised.
Here's a pic of my nails / cuticles and bottle
This stuff really works, period. It comes in a blue squeeze bottle with enough product to last a while at a dirt cheap price compared to other cuticle removers, and it works fast. The instructions say to squeeze a thin strip onto your cuticles and under your nail, but I only put it on my cuticles, not sure why you would want to put it under your nail. I don't have problem cuticles, just average ones, so I don't have to leave it on long at all, in fact it starts working almost immediately. If you have thicker cuticles I would guess you'd just leave it on a bit longer, within reason. I squeeze a thin strip onto my cuticles over the sink, then immediately go back with an orangewood stick and start pushing back my cuticles, which just slip right off no problem, then I wash with soap and warm water and voila. Totally painless, brainless and stressless. Much better than shaving/nipping off my cuticles as I was doing before!
This is an updated review. My rating has not change (5), but I've found a fabulous super quick way to freshen a pedicure when I just can't get to the salon. I hate it when I get whitish cuticle and skin buildup on and around my polished toes. With the polish on, I put the SH Instant Cuticle Remover on, let it sit for a couple of minutes and then I take a scrub brush (the kind made for nails) and scrub WITHOUT water....that's the key point. Then I wash it off in the shower with the brush, water and soap. If I have time I add a new layer of topcoat although the brushing doesn't destroy the polish if you are really in a hurry. Works a like a charm for me and just makes a pedi look fresher to get me through to the next full pedi. I've even tried it on my nails with success. I don't have overly thick cuticles but I'm not sensitive either. HG product works quick....wouldn't ever be without it.
