This product worked really well for me! :D While I don't like that "oily" feeling on my hands, this cuticle oil is very light and absorbs quickly. I use it twice a day and it helps smooth out my cuticles. It also lasts forever. I've had it for a year, and have used barely anything in the bottle if not for my constant spilling of the contents. :P
I'm not a huge fan of cuticle oils but I do recommend this product, especially for the winter time. Unlike some of the cuticle oils I have tried, this has definitely held up to my standards. Its odorless, it absorbs quickly but is very moisturizing also. As with most sally hansen products, its affordable and the packaging is pratical. A little goes a long way. Just like one of the reviewers below, no matter when I put it on (in the beginning) I always used too much. I started just applying a dot to one nail and it was enough to cover every finger. Definitely pick this stuff up if your looking for a good portable cuticle oil.
This really softens and smoothes my cuticles after one application. I don't need to use it too often (it works so well) so a bottle will last me ages! Loves!
I really like to use this oil on my toe cuticles. If you're wearing nail polish, it will make the polish really shiny. The only bad part about this is that the bottle leaks sometimes.
This cuticle oil works great- I used it on my boyfriend so I could cut his cuticles and if this stuff can soften up HIS cuticles it will work on anybody!
Another product I bought completely on a whim, and didn't realize everyone loved so much!
If you have extremely dry hands/cuticles, this may not be the oil for you, as it is quite light. You may need a waxy balm instead. My skin is oily, and my hands/nails only tend to get slightly dry.
Frankly, I am too cheap for manicures, and I hate the artificial look of nail polish anyway. Unless it is a special occasion, I'm not bothering with that stuff. I also dislike how dry and nasty the polish and remover leaves my cuticles and nails.
I may be somewhat vain, but I've always had nice hands and strong nails that easily grow long. Now that I'm getting older, the youthful, slightly-waxy softness of my cuticles is going away and getting more dry and flaky.
This oil does the trick. It leaves my nails with a nice, buffed-but-natural sheen, and my cuticles almost totally invisible. It feels good, and not damaging to my skin and nails like polish does. It is a fluid oil, not too thick, and it has no scent. If you leave it on for a few minutes, it eventually dries and leaves your nails just looking lovely and moisturized. (You won't want to be doing a lot of paperwork right after applying. Let it dry like you would a nail polish. However, I am successfully typing with it on!)
And the effects last longer than just one day. If you put this on at night, the next day your nails look just as lovely, even after showering and hand-washing throughout the day.
If you want to strength your nails and make them harder, this thing definitely works! Before I started using this, I could never grow out my nails because they bend too easily. This thing did miracles for me. I'm happy with this product and will definitely purchase this again when it runs out.
I'm a bit surprised by the great reviews on this but it just goes to show you how some products can work for many people but there will always be exceptions.
Generally I have weak, thin nails that aren't able to grow long so was hoping for something that may help in some of these areas. I wasn't expecting a miracle but since this is sold as a nail and cuticle oil I was expecting something that would help in this area. I am very disappointed because it didn't do anything for my nails or cuticles. Actually it makes my fingers more dry after using it and I feel like I immediately need moisturizer. I also don't see how this works any better than using another oil product.
I also use Burt's Bees lemon cuticle cream and so far I would say this is the best cuticle cream I have found for my weak nails
I've been using this daily for about a week now and I must say that my cuticles are much more moisturized and healthy than they were a week ago. The oil itself is thick and if I just use the brush I find that no matter how careful I am I put way too much on, so what I do instead is put one dot on the middle of each cuticle and then massage it in with my finger. Great product for the price!
Love this! My cuticles always get pretty dry and ugly looking when my gel nails begin to grow out and I just apply a tiny bit and massage it in. It immediately looks healthy and moisturised again. Price was 17 AUD so not on the cheap side but this will probably last me a long time since you only need a little each application.
