I finished mine now. My cuticles were very dry and the skin cracked a lot. My nails were always breaking. I was using sometimes 2 times per day, and It helped a lot. The skin is so much better. Also the nails are stronger, but I´m sure is because of another product that I also used (Mavala).
The package is very nice to use, except the end cap that is not well fixed and is not very useful for correcting the cuticles. And also gives me the feeling that there is some product still left, that I can´t reach.
It smells great!!! But is also very oily, not immediately absorbed.
The price is expensive for the size, but at least I now it is efficient.
I´m sure there are better products in the market, but this one is already good.

Delivery is good. But this is not a wonder product, I wanted softer cuticles, flexible nails. And I don't think it does that..... A miss from me. X

First off, this is really expensive for the amount you get! But I'm really getting into taking care of my cuticles and hands, but the usual oil I use is in a nail polish bottle and is not very portable. I wanted something I could take along and whip out should I need to. Handy having a soft cuticle pusher on the end too; I have short stumpy nails so I need to push the cuticles back daily to give the illusion of longer nails. Great product, bad price.

This cuticle oil is just wonderful! For reference I've tried a few other cuticle oils: OPI's Avoplex, California Mango Magic and Creative Design Solar Oil. In general I prefer CMM, though it's in a nail polish like bottle therefore not too portable on-the-go. The packaging is brilliant, a click pen that includes a soft, rubbery cuticle push attached to the lid. At $12 I think this is great bang for you buck, especially considering one click can do one hand or both!
The smell is lovely - natural and sweet. It absorbs quickly which is also convenient though it still does a wonderful job at moisturising your cuticles! It isn't too oily and has a slightly gel texture which is a plus so it doesn't drip of cause a mess.
Overall I am impressed. It's my new go-to portable oil - it won my preference against Avoplex but a landslide!

I've only used this a few times but I love it already! I used to use Burt's Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Creme and that just didn't do anything for me. Plus I really dislike sticking my fingers into a pot and generally just get my fingers all oily. With this convenient little twist pen, I no longer have oily fingers! One small twist, a drop comes out (but it won't drip) and it's enough to do an entire hand. I just dab a little on each nail, then go back and distribute it evenly. Very handy. :) My cuticles look way better than before, when I was using Burt's Bees. I love it to the moon and back!

This is an absolute go-to product for me. I have extremely dry cuticles and thin, fragile nails that peel and tear at the drop of a hat. This oil stops the peeling and definitely makes my nails stronger and more resilient. The pen makes it really easy to apply exactly where you want it and the quantity is easily controlled. On first use you do have to twist the pen quite a few times to get the oil to flow. I can't recommend this enough!

Before I start reviewing this product, I will just saw that I have some of the worst fingernails in the world. I used to bite them when I was younger, and they still have trouble growing, so they are still quite short and rather weak. I was using hand an nail cream to moisturise my hands and strengthen my nails, but I wasn't really seeing much improvement in my nails so when I saw this in the Body Shop I thought I would try it, and I ended up really liking it! It has the same delicious sweet, nutty smell as the almond oil hand cream. The packaging is really good, very easy to apply the oil and twisting the pen to get more is also very easy. You just have to be careful not to use too much on one nail because it feels a bit yuck if you have too much on. If you control it well though, it will cover the whole nail and cuticle and leaves both feeling moisturised. As with most Body Shop products, price could be a little lower, but the product is still good enough that it'[s worth it. Recommended :)

Very good, I love the smell and it makes my nails and cuticals strong and in good contition. Its expensive for what it is, and you really don't get very much in the tube so use sparingly. But its very easy to apply and worth the price.

This cured my dry cuticles and it smells heavenly. It's not too oily and the click pen means you can kind of control the amount you need to dispense. I usually rub it into my nail and it gives the nails a natural sheen. Best convenient cuticle oil to own!

I have very horridly dry cuticles. I normally buy Nails Inc avacado oil pen - but there's isn't a nails Inc on my way to or from work and my cuticles were sharp, cracked and slightly bleeding.
So bought this. It's good for it's purpose, almond oil is a very good healing oil (for cuts and grazes and chapped skin) so after applying it several times a day for a few days my cuticles were totally healed. I still need to put it on every day a couple times.
The avocado pen was better though and I didn't have to apply it much - it being a thicker oil and more oil in the pen meant it lasted longer. It may have been a couple of quid more (£10), but it was worth it.
I will buy this product only as a second choice. it works, it's handy, it's a nice smell, but it's not as good as avocado oil.

This product is a god send! I've always had dry cuticles so my mum bought me this. After just 3 uses my nails have never looked healthier. The packaging is really convenient and easy to use. The scent is very pleasant and the texture of the product is great (not too greasy or too watery). Love it!

Perhaps my cuticles are just out to get me but I suffer with keeping them moisturized and nice looking constantly. This pen is super easy to carry around, smells pretty good and gets the job TEMPORARILY (Con #1) done. I actually found that this pen worked better at making the tips of my nails white and helping them grow. As for strictly cuticle help - i'm sure there's a lot better products out there, but i'd buy it again because I like the packaging ;). Con #2 would be that you will need to replace this way more often than a cuticle balm or lotion. I used it once daily for about 2 months and it's completely dry.

Might I just say what a handy little gadget this is. It's the size of a sharpie, is loaded with really nice smelling almond oil treatment in a click-brush, and the cap for it has a little rubber cuticle pusher that's quite comfy to use. So this is pretty convenient to carry around in your purse, and easy to apply and use. How well does the treatment work? Really great, better than any of the other ones I've used.. perhaps because it's so no-fuss to apply and therefore I use it more often than I would if it meant dipping my fingers in a messy pot. I work in a bookstore, which is rough on your hands, and I'm all the time getting torn and ragged dry cuticles.. so this product has been a godsend. Yeah, it's on the expensive side, but The Body Shop often has buy 2 get 1 free or buy 3 get 2 free mix and match deals on all their products sooo... hard to go wrong there. :)

This is a very likable product, the pen is very easy to use because you can twist the bottom to allow as much/as little product to be disposed from the brush-tip applicator which makes those manicure days less messy and time consuming. Also, the smell is very soft and creamy, almost like whipped cream and natural almond oil. More importantly, the product moisturizes nails very well, I wear nail polish often which leaves my natural nails soft, dry and brittle. Although this treatment does not help with brittleness it does add moisture and harden the nail's texture. For best results, be sure to remove all previous nail polish, wash hands and nails using a soapy nail brush then gently buff nail surface with a nail buffer BEFORE applying this treatment onto the nails. Only downside maybe that this treatment did not moisturize my cuticles very well even though my cuticles are not that dry! Oh well..this is a good product for moisturizing nails but for me I now use Lauren Brooke 'Island Paradise' Body Balm instead (it smells like pina colada and coconut and moisturizes hands, nails, AND cuticles, plus they are natural and many of their ingredients are fair trade).

I adore the scent, I can't stop smelling my nails when I use this. Works very well considering I wash my hands at work all day and have terrible nails and cuticles. I like that this is something I can use just on my nails/cuticles without having to actually get the product on my fingertips or hands. Sometimes I just do not want creams/lotions on my hands and this brush applicator makes it so I do not have to get the product anywhere but where I need it. Love it and will repurchase, the convenience of the applicator is worth the price to me.

easy to use, expensive for what it is actually worth.

It's a great product, but soooooo expensive! The pen contains less than 2 ml. The OPI Avoplex contains nearly 8 ml. That having been said, the Body Shop product is far superior, and smells one hell of a sight better than the Avoplex.
Knocked a star off because it's so expenisve!

Love it!!! I have very dry and terrible cuticle problem, I tried so many products such as Sally Hanse, Lush....none of them works as good as this treatment from The Body Shop....I often use very bold nail color, I guess my nails got damagd really bad, when I removed my nail polish, everytime, my nails looked so unhealthy, so I had to use color to cover it again...but after 3 days (I used 2-3 times a day), my nails look so much healthier, my cuticle doesnt have any white-ish thick skin anymore...i highly recomment it!!!!

I can't rave about this stuff enough!!! It's my new HG product and I wont go anywhere without it. I have severe dry and cracked cuticles and surronding skin. This delish-smelling oil is super moisturizing and after just a couple uses were looking much better and soft to the touch, which has never happened before!! The oil is on the thick side and doesn't run. I am still only on the first pen but I have a feeling this is going to be a lifetime love, they better not discontinue!!

Got this in my stocking. Seem to be working wonders on my very dry, damaged, cracked hands. And it smells really good. It's also full of good ingredients. Btwn this and my Eucerin urea hand cream, my hands have only cracked once this winter!
