I like this product allot because I can just use it once every few days and my cuticles still look fantastic! It really moisturizes and softens my cuticles and its not too sticky or oily so it doesn't bother me to leave it on for awhile. In my opinion it works better than just using cuticle oil.

I LOVE THIS STUFF. It is a little hard to get out of the packaging at first, but as you continue to use it, the product kind of melts and becomes creamier. I use this every night with Eucerin hand cream (the really heavy duty kind), and I've REALLY noticed a difference in my dry and all-around icky hands. As I remember, this is somewhat expensive (6 dollars?), but you can find it on sale pretty often.

This did not absorb into my cuticles at all. I picked it up because it appeared to be gluten free. It just went on as a sticky mess, never really accomplishing anything.

I'll compare this to Qtica's cuticle balm, my favorite. The Qtica softens more, even really dry, ragged cuticles - the Sally Hansen softens a lot, but not completely. The Qtica is "meltier" and easier to get out of the pot. Despite this, they both absorb about as easily. The Sally Hansen smells way better (the Qtica has a perfume-y scent I really don't care for) and costs way less (about US$6 for 0.4 oz vs. $14 for 0.25 oz). I might keep buying the Qtica just because I'm enjoying not feeling those hard ridges of skin along the edges of my nails, but the Sally Hansen is certainly an acceptable substitute.

This stuff is a Godsend during the cold, snowy winter months. If I smooth any hangnails with this before bed, they are healed the next day. Not greasy and pleasant smelling. I've found this product so helpful (and reasonably priced) any time throughout the year.

Smells OK, packaging is OK, works OK...nothing special here. I use it on occasion, but everytime I do I regret it. It's messy, greasy, and makes my nails look filmy (when they're polished. Right now I have a manicure that I paid good money for, I don't want my cuticle repair to leave them all nasty.) It just doesn't seem to absorb well, or quickly.
I'll take an easy to use cuticle pen over this gunk anyday.

I'm not a big nail person so I don't tend to use a lot of nail treatment products; however, I bite my nails all the time and after a while the skin around my nails was getting cracked and dry. I tried this and it worked really well. I put it on at night and in the morning the skin around my nails looks healthy and moisturized. It's purpose is a nail cuticle cream, but it works best for me as a skin moisturizer around my nails. Hand cream doesn't work as well around my nails so I'm glad I found this!

Meh, this product is okay. I stopped using it after a few uses. Nothing spectacular.

This works really well for me. It is more on the waxy side, but I like that it isn't greasy. I tried the Dior one and it was not only pricey but very oily and sticky cream, it doesn't absorb well at all but this is perfect. Nice apricot scent that isn't too strong. I use it just before slipping into bed and no hangnails, yayyy!!!!!

Even if this product smelled, felt, looked, and absorbed better than it does (fails abysmally at all of the above btw,) it still leaves no positive change on my cuticles, thus rendering it useless. Combined, these failures make it one of the worst products in the aisles of Walgreens--avoid it, and pick up poshe cuticle cream instead.

Am kinda shocked by the semi good/bad reviews. My prayers have been answered with this. My cuticles get really dry and flaky cause I change nail polishes every 3 days it seems. I apply this after and message it in each nail cuticle for a good minute. I then wipe it off with a towel or paper towel and they stay moisturized for me even after washings ( maybe because I use the SH Dry Chapped Hand Creme which helps cuticles as well). My HG (believe it or not) of nail care. I'd recommend.

It smells nice, but is not very moisturizing. I suppose it could be smoothing for people who don't have dryness to begin with, but I was not satisfied.

I have purchased this on more than one occassion, and one tub was thick and creamy and the other tub was waxy and unuseable. I returned the waxy one, but thought it was worth mentioning in the event any of you MUAers have had a similar experience.
This cream is not very moisturizing, and I did not find that it helped much with my dry cuticles/hangnails. It isn't greasy or oily, and it seems to absorb quickly, so you won't be leaving fingerprints everywhere.
The tub is sturdy, and once empty (and washed) is great for storage. I prefer CND Cuticle Eraser for day, and Badger Cuticle Care for night. Will not repurchase.

I received this product as part of a nail treatment gift set my bff made for me. I hadnt seen it previously so I was curious to see how I'd like it. Unfortunately it didnt do much for my cuticles. I stopped using my HG cuticle treatments and wanted to give this product a fair review but I couldnt last more than 2 weeks using this product on its own because it did not keep my cuticles moisturized. I gave it three lippies because of the scent, the portable twist top container and the consistency of the product. It has a lovely apricot scent and sinks right into the skin. It kept my cuticles moisturized until I washed my hands. With my HG cuticle creams/balm, my cuticles are moisturized even after I wash my hands, so I guess I'm a bit spoiled. I just wouldnt buy this product again because I feel there are better products out there.

Not only am I a recovering nail-biter, I work in healthcare. My hands are in hospital-grade handsoap and water all day long, and no matter how much hand lotion I would apply, my cuticles were still splitting and sore.
I picked some of this up at the store on a whim for about $5, and applied it as soon as I got home. I was instantly pleased with the gentle apricot scent. The texture was a surprise, as I was expecting a more oily, creamy product. I enjoy the more solid aspect of this product, as the typical oils I was using would rub off on clothing or the sheets, or soak through the gloves I wear at night.
My cuticles were immediately much fresher-looking, as are my newly growing nails. I notice no staining or any adverse effects, only beautiful cuticles. I even talked my boyfriend into trying it, since he washes his hands a lot, too. He loves it, as well.

I actually really like this, I wasn't expecting much based on the reviews but was pleasantly surprised. I don't like cuticle oils, somehow I feel like they dry out my cuticles even more, so I tend to use balms. This one smells nice and makes my cuticles look good. A little goes a long way.
It's a little on the hard side for a balm (especially the first couple times I used it) but I put it in my pocket for a few minutes and it softens.

Forgot about this stuff! I used it for a long time mainly because I found it on sale once and bought two. I liked it a lot at the time. I have very dry skin and very dry cuticles. This helped a lot, but like any cuticle treatment, you must be diligent and use it consistently to see any results. Nothing to be blown away by, but comforting in both scent and appearance of the product as it seems so feminine. I liked the original packaging much better. I said I wouldn't repurchase because I want to use up products I have now.

I don't get why this has so many bad reviews! I guess people purchase this thinking its has a thin and creamy texture and that is why they are disappointed. I on the other hand, purchased this expecting a thick consistency so I am more than happy with this. I've been using Essie Apricot Cuticle Oil and it is so oily and did absolutely nothing for my cuticles.
This stuff nourishes my cuticles after one application. You can see it right away. Love, love, love.
Buy it if you want a balm type cuticle treatment that is inexpensive and absorbs quickly. Don't buy it if you are expecting a thin formula. Go with an OIL.
Will continue to buy again and again.

I am reaching the end of my first jar and will be buying another one, This product WORKS. It repairs dry cuticles, hangnails...
However, it needs to be apllied a lot during the first couple of days of use. Like, every couple of hours or so. After that, you can get away with applying it once ot twice a day, according to your needs. It also needs to be applied consistenly, if you stop using it for a couple of weeks, your cuticles wil go back to being dry.
I agree that the smell and consistency are not the most pleasant, but I'd rather put up with greasy finger tips for a few days that ugly ones! and for that price, it's unbeatable!
