This definitely soothes and smoothes my dry cuticles. It feels greasy going on, but the greasy feeling doesn't last. I use it all over my hands and then wipe off my palms so they won't be greasy. I love the lemon smell. In fact, in a pinch, I have used this as a "solid perfume" to put on me for the nice citrus scent blast. The scent doesn't last long. I will probably keep repurchasing this product. I am not too crazy about the strong lemon fragrance though; it's like rubbing lemons straight on your hand. In a way, that's cool though because if you did that, it would sting like crazy, yet this stuff feels nice and moisturizes. Unique product.
I have used this product for 3-4 years now and I must say that I really love it. It is a great moisturizer and smells delish. Also, Burt's Bees is a great company!!! I have tried many of their products and Im a big fan.
I absolutely lovve this !!! I had super dry - flaky cuticles. based on advice from the nail board i tried this and I must say has become a HG for me. I happen to like the smell of lemon. Initially for about a week I used it atleast three times a day now I use it once before I sleep - I massage it into my nails and cuticle area .I feel it has made my nails stronger and makes it look moisturized now. On some dry days I use it twice in the day.
Smells wonderful but is MUCH MUCH too greasy for daytime use unless your skin is completely incapable of containing moisture.
I got a sample of this when I purchased a Burts Bees sampler kit. The lemon scent eventually got on my nerves. This comes in a small tin which is cute, however, regular hand cream would have worked just was good (imo). It's also not a cream but more of a thick ointment/balm. You have to "dig" for it. HTH.
The first Burt's Bees product that didn't work for me. :( I'm halfway the big tin and my cuticles look almost the same. Oh well. I do like the lemony scent though and that's it. I'll see what happens when I use it all up.
I love this stuff, it's convienient and lasts forever, i personally love lemon so I love this scent even though it's like lemon pledge, it does't leave my nails/hands slightly greasy afterwards but they are moisturized and i haven't had many problems with hangnails like i use to, my hand were always so dry and bad looking. Plus it gives your nails a slight sheen.
I am so impressed with this product!!! It is really moisturizing for my cuticles without being greasy and disgusting like other products I've tried. It is really cheap too for such a big tin of it! I also never paint my nails so when I applied this it gave them a nice little shine. My cuticles look and feel so much better after applying this. I'm not too keen on the scent though, kinda like Pinesol, but it wears away quickly. The tin isn't my fav either as the lid doesn't want to go on ever. It is a nice size for my purse though. Overall though, this stuff kicks butt. Buy some, it's cheap and wonderful!
i pick at my nail beds a lot when they're dry, but after using this every day for a few weeks, my nails and the skin surrounding them are so much healthier. i love the scent, i'm a huge fan of citrus. it doesn't feel oily at all to me, it feels nourishing. i like to use it when i'm at work, it chills me out. i also apply it before bed so it won't get washed off or anything. i've had the same tin for well over a year, so it lasts for a long time. i highly reccomend this to keep your nails and nail beds healthy and good looking.
I've tried so many cuticle creams, and this is the worst. It goes on oily and makes your hands feel dirty (dirt collecting in the oil?). When it finally dries, your cuticles look drier than before. Ugh. It seems to get that "gritty" feeling that BB's products acquire over time too. The smell is fine, but that doesn't make up for the overall nastiness.
