Well, this made my nails and fingers soft--but it didn't do a darn thing for my cuticles, and I even left it on longer then recommended.
If I just wanted soft nails, I'd use olive oil.
This really didn't seem to do a great job on my cuticles. I can get similar results with just soaking in warm soapy water. I do like the packaging and the smell, but I doubt I would repurchase.
Didn't seem to do much for me but the area around my nails were left soft so I guess this is an okay product.
i had a terrible problem with this product. it ate through my nails. its been over a year and they are just beginning to return to almost normal. several trips to the doctor and medications, both oral and topical. i applied it for only 6 minutes, washed it off with soap and water. it ate through my nails and skin infecting it so badly i was in constant pain. thankfully i only used it on two cuticles. i would never suggest anyone to use this product.
i really love this product. i actually should use it more often, it removes the tough cuticles around my toe nails as well as rough skin on the sides of my foot. it smells great too!
This stuff doesn't magically remove cuticles, it just gets rid of dead skin cells before you cut your cuticles. If I wanted to make them 'soft' enough to cut, I would just do so after a long, warm shower. It gets the job done equally. After I tested this out and cut my cuticles, I was so sad. Because after weeks of caring for my cuticles and making them grow by religiously putting on cuticle creams day and night, I just ended up trimming them the old fashioned way and ruining the skin around the cuticles. Never will I cut my own cuticles. I will dish out the money and get them removed by a professional.
This stuff is fantastic for obtaining professional looking home manicures. I don't know how well it would work if I didn't give my nails a good long soak in warm soapy water and a good going over w/ a nail brush prior to use but I do - Then I leave this on for 5 minutes and push my cuticles back with an orange stick. Another good going over w/ a nail brush & soapy warm water and my cuticles need little or no trimmimg (which is a good thing as I am a klutz at that). I took a point off because the packaging sucks - the opening is way too large to apply the "thin
line" that is recommended - I end up with it smeared all over the entire nail bed. But the price is reasonable enough to waste some product in over-applying. It's really gentle and non-drying too.
hmmmmmmmmm i didnt like having to massage this into my cuticles for a few min but i guess u always hav to do that! haha im jus lazy. but newayz it made my cuticles soft and easy to push back tats for sure! tho.. some of my cuticles didnt look to great cuz i guess i pushed them back wrong or somethin (im new at this so if ne one has tips pls let me know!) overall the product worked well
There is no way I could do pedicures at home without this stuff. It's great. It totally softens up my cuticles so that I can push them back or trim them without difficulty. After soaking your toes, rub this on your cuticles and leave it on five minutes. Rinse and then push back cuticles or trim with a nail clipper. Be careful though! I'm taking points off because the tube is messy, but otherwise this stuff is great!
This product works much better than more expensive brands I've tried, such as Barielle (which did nothing!). I leave it on for about 10 minutes, then use a cuticle pusher to push cuticles back. I still usually need to trim them up, but this product helps tremendously. Afterwards, I apply a cuticle cream.
