I put off buying it for a bit because of the price. It's $9 CAD at shoppers drug mart, which I feel is a bit pricey for .6oz of product. I do adore the smell. Honestly I don't like using it on my cuticles, it's too greasy. However, it's done *wonders* for my extremely dry, chapped lips. It doesn't feel greasy on my lips, isn't stick, has a great scent and makes them very soft. One of my favorite lip balms ever.
I love this product! I originally got it as a gift in a Burt's Bees package with several products. As an Art Teacher, I wash my hands A LOT. especially in the winter time, my hands would be very dry from using so much soap and working with paint etc. This works great to soften the cuticles and even rubbed on knuckles and the tops of the your hands. Makes manicures look great and makes it much easier to remove your cuticles by clipping or using a v-shaped trimmer. Would definitely buy again. I love that it is a small container I can throw in my bag.
Love the smell, works wonderfully to hydrate cuticles and in a pinch - dry cracked lips.
I got this product for free at an event and didn't really think about using it. However I started wearing nail polish a lot and thanks to this product, my cuticles remained healthy and moisturized even after contacting nail polish remover countless times. It smells great and the packaging is signature Burt's Bees- cute and simple.
I love the smell and it does a great job at moisturizing.
It seems the price for this used to be $8, I thought I was so smart getting it on sale at Books-a-Million for 5.99, but I guess it's gone down everywhere! Even better! I have struggled so hard with my cuticles and nails getting so dried out and brittle, especially at work because I use so much Germ-x and wash my hands constantly. My nails peel back in layers within a day of working, even if they looked healthy on my day off.
Not anymore! I know some people have complained about this product being too thick or smelly, honestly, I don't see it. My BF has commented on the smell but not complained, and it dissapates rather quickly anyways. It smells like lemonade or something. I don't think it's thick, I put some around the nailbed over every finger, then go back and rub it in. They feel so smooth and soft - and literally, AFTER ONE DAY of using this product, my nails were twice as thick, and had not chipped once! NO MORE rough cuticles or peeling nails. Not exaggerating. I wanted to write the review that day but I gave it some time! I have no complaints about this product. I don't think it gets enough love! Maybe some previous reviewers didn't have horrible nails to begin with, but this is a HG item for sure! I will say, sometimes it seems to dull the shine when I wear nail polish, but not for long. Oh well, still worth it!
I use this as a lip balm on my extremely sensitive lips. I had a sample size from 4 years ago and its still kickin!!
I LOVE this product! I use it everyday, each morning and night, and in-between when I can. My hands get pretty roughed up and definitely look older than the rest of me. After a day of bartending, with the hands in the water, then can look kinda scruffy. I use this all over my hands, not just my cuticles and I have had amazing results. I use the almond cream as well, but I enjoy the smell of the lemon so much more! It smells like a delicious lemon pound cake! My hands are softer, smoother and my cuticles are not splitting and breaking as often. It's only been a few weeks, but I love that the progress is immediate. I hate waiting for results! Some people may not like the waxy-like texture and they may hate having to dig in a pot for the product, but its worth every minute and every penny!
I can’t believe I haven’t written a review for this yet, because I have already annihilated a few tins of this stuff! So, now you shouldn’t be shocked when I shout “I LOVE THIS STUFF!”
I am a regular on the nail board, so I know people have different opinions, but for me this stuff works great. I wont want/need to use a cuticle remover. I message this into my cuticles daily, (multiple times a day if I can remember) and it makes my nails/cuticles look nice and hydrated. I think it also helps my nails grow strong and long – but that is likely mostly due to the extra attention and circulation in the area from using this all the time.
It is pretty heavy, and so don’t use it right before you are about to do something. Some people also complain about the gritty texture, but it does not bother me one big. Actually, I think it may help exfoliate the area if anything. It softens cuticles quickly, and so I just push them down gently as I apply it. As others have said, it is VERY hydrating – the most hydrating cuticle treatment I have ever used. It can heal even the worst of cuticles. I am really rough with my hands, and I use drying pure acetone – but you wouldn’t know it now that I have discovered this stuff. It really has helped me make a large improvement in the way my hands and nails look.
I like to apply it while I am watching TV, or right before I leave the house to drive to school-that gives it a good 30 minuets to seep in. It takes a while, but it eventually seeps in and I am good to go – I just rub any access into my hands after I let it set on my nails for a bit.
Never ever use this right before apply polish. Even if I wash my hands after, the oil makes the polish chip super fast. Instead, I apply is right after my mani is fully dry. To some this may seem like it doesn’t make sense, but if you use it often, and push back your cuticles often, you wont need to do it right before you so you many anyways, because they always look good. I keep a tin of this in my purse, by my bed and with my nail kit – so I am sure I am never without it. It also smells soooo good!
The only cons I can think of, is the tin. (which they recently just changed slightly, so It may not be the case anymore) The paint on the edge of the tin flakes off and makes a yuckie mess, and sometimes it's hard to open because it gets gummed up. My sister had a tin like this that sealed it's self shut from the heat. At first I thought it was too expensive for such a small amount of product (about $6 for a .6 oz tin) but seeing as how a little goes a long way, I no longer feel that way.
Super hydrating and LOVE the lemony scent.
