This is my HG cuticle cream. After just one use, i see a dramatic improvement. The tube allows you to squeeze out a small ribbon directly on my cuticles, and its tiny so it fits in my purse. The flip side is that there is not a lot of product so it runs ut quickly. I found it for $5 including shipping, so i bought 2. I suggest pairing this with an occasional use of Blue Cross Cuticle, dirt cheap at Sally's.
This beats my next favorite, Qtica, b/c that one is greasier and takes longer to see results.

Holy moly, I think I may have found my Holy Grail cuticle product.
I have a lifelong problem with dry, raggedy cuticles. It doesn't help that when they're ragged, I tend to pick at them (or bite them, which is even worse). In the past few months, I've been on a quest to find a routine that really, really works to keep my cuticles healthy and free of hangnails and other cuticle problems.
I am astounded by how well and how quickly this has worked. The packaging suggests improvement in a week, but saw real improvement in just a couple of days, using the product twice a day (I will eventually move to once a day, I suspect). I had been doing some work with my hands that was extremely hard on my cuticles and a couple were actually torn, but within a few days, that was all but healed and my cuticles were looking much healthier in general. In a couple of weeks, I expect my cuticles will be in the best condition they've ever been in, and I'm not exaggerating that.
I will continue to use hand lotions and other creams for general moisturising (I love Lush Lemony Flutter, but it's hard to carry with me and it tends to melt in the heat, so I usually have Sally Hansen Cuticle Eraser + Balm in my bag for quick touchups), but I am so impressed with the Poshe Cuticle Care that it is definitely looking like the answer to my quest (finally!).
Only problem with this is that I can't find it locally (I live in Melbourne, Australia), so I have to order it online, but as I do that a few times a year (place a big order to justify the shipping), I can just get a few of these to have on hand. I must say, though, a little goes a long way with this, and the packaging is very clever so you only get the amount you need, and I expect it to last for some time (so there's no hurry on re-ordering, yay).
I will update this review if I revise my opinion, of course, but for now, all I can say is, "Wow, colour me impressed!"

I used this product 2-3 times a day for a week, and I've decided that it just can't compare to jojoba oil. Despite being an oil, jojoba doesn't coat the skin. Instead, it completely absorbs into skin very, very quickly. And, of course, it's far more moisturizing than this Poshe product.
However, this product isn't terrible or anything. In fact, I'd recommend it to people who want to carry a cuticle moisturizer with them, but don't want to risk spilling or melting.
I also have to give Poshe a lot of credit for the excellent packaging. The tube has a tapered nozzle with a very narrow opening, so you can precisely control how much of the product you squeeze out. The product is very thick, too, so a little goes a long way. So even though the package is small, I think you get a lot of bang for your buck.

I tried this after reading nail blogs and deciding that I needed to try something different . I live in Montana with some ugly winters and it was showing. I found it at Sally Beauty Supply for about $4 for a tube. I love the packaging-tube with a tiny tip makes it very easy to apply to my cuticles and leave on. I can do this quickly at my work desk and continue working on the computer while it disks in a bit. Massage in and WOW! No more little hairy hangnails popping up, and things are so much healthier looking. I routinely push my cuticles back, so no difference noticed there. But my nails are healthier, skin around nails is soft, smoother and pretty! Such a noticeable difference. I am allergic to most fragrances-not this. Very soft mild scent, not greasy to apply, either. I love that I can use it at work. That makes me more likely to use it frequently...yay! I apply 2-3 times/day, with lotion for the rest of my hand.

I absolutely LOVE this stuff. As a nervous habit, I subconsciously pick at my cuticles constantly, and I've never been able to find a lotion that actually works for this. I'll actually pick and peel and cause major damage to myself. As a nurse, I'm always washing or putting alcohol foam on my hands. That paired with the fact that we keep the air in hospitals very dry just exacerbates my problem.
So, for anyone who's in the same boat as I am, here's my routine:
I use a nail file to actually buff away the rough edges of my cuticles. For those pesky long little jobbies, I have cuticle clippers. Once I'm done with that, I'll apply the Poshe cuticle cream and just rub it in. I find this works best at night, so that it can heal overnight.
The only downside is that it's a tiny little tube, but it seems to last me a good amount of time. A little bit of this stuff goes a long way.
I still find myself picking, but with my cuticles becoming softer, I find it more and more difficult to do... which is a very good thing.

I love this stuff. It's the only exfoliating cuticle cream I've used that doesn't have to be washed off AND it feels very moisturizing instead of just sticky, so it's a pleasure to keep on. Makes my wrecked cuticles look and feel better instantly, and helps keep them maintained. I use first thing in the morning and before bed, both times layered under Mango Mend. The combo leaves my hands, cuticles and nails looking and feeling *much* better -- especially as we approach winter and my nemesis, The Awful Dryness, returns. My only complaints, such as they are, are the price (about $7-8USD) which is a little more than I'd like to spend on a cuticle treatment, however it works well and you only need a little bit, so it lasts; and the package -- the one I got suffers a considerable amount of seepage into the cap, so I'm losing a fair amount of product. All told, however, it's worth it, and I'll definitely repurchase. I had previously been using OPI Avoplex AHA Cuticle Cream (which I liked well enough), and I still use the California Mango Cuticle Remover to actively push back the cuticles once or twice a week, although the Poshe would also be good in this capacity.

It's not that often that one buys a product and immediately can tell a difference, or finds it exceeds expectations. But omg, this stuff is the ISH. Having super soft hands is one of those "things" I've always wanted to achieve, (like having stupidly long lashes, ya dig?) and I've had quite a few products fail my expectations. I picked this up at sally's when I went to get another bottle of haken nail oil and couldn't find it, and for $7, this tube has changed my hands. Blue cross and Sally Hansen cuticle remover are both miserable compared to the effectiveness of this product, and it's much more user friendly since I don't have to remove it after use. Surprisingly, it works amazingly well on the tough skin around my toes as well. It only takes a small amount, and using it 2x a day in conjunction with eucerin hand cream (the one with urea) has transformed the appearance of my nails. Sheer nail polish looks so much prettier than it used to without the ragged edges of my cuticles to detract from it. My boo even said the other night that I had the softest hands, sigh. I would absolutely buy this again, and plan on buying it for my mother too

I must have super dry cuticles because this alone doesn't moisturize them enough. However, if I layer this under Mango Mend the combination works wonders. I've been using this combination nightly for the last month and my cuticles look fabulous. It's more than I like to spend on a treatment, but it does work; also I love the applicator since it dispenses the perfect amount and keeps you from using too much product (thus making it more economical). Personally I don't smell anything from this, and usually I'm very sensitive to scents. I will definitely repurchase.

I have super tough, don't want to come off for nuthin' cuticles. Back in the day when I got acrylics, the tech would always complain about em. I haven't done my nails in a dogs age but I have been trying to stop picking at my poor sad cuticles so I am painting again.
Now, I know if my cuticles look like $h*t that my paint job will come out looking like that too so I have been spending time really trying to get them in shape.
First I tried California Mango Mend from Sally's that everyone raves about. It's a terrific moisturizer but wasn't really helping in the way I wanted. I know saying "I can't describe what I actually was looking for" is lame but that's all I got. I then went on a hunt for Creative Nail Design Cuticle Eraser. No luck. Where the heck to they sell this stuff anyway?? I did find Poshe' at Sally's so I gave it a whirl. I have to say my cuticle skin is looking quite nice now. Time will tell if it actually keeps the sticky not gonna budge stuff off the actual nail but in the mean time, the skin around my nails is looking better every day.
I have heard that the CND Eraser works even better and when I finally do find it I will give it a try. Till then, I would repurchase this. I mean, something has to be said for availability, right?
*EDIT* I am so sticking with Poshe! I tried CND and, to me, it smells like pee. Yep, you read that right. Gross! And the scent lingers. I will pass on potty hands!

I bought this based on MUA reviews. I used it for two weeks and wasn't favorably impressed. My cuticles aren't ragged, but a thin layer of skin grows onto the perimeter of the nails and hugs on very tightly. I wanted this excess skin to be gone. I like the tube that the Poshe comes in, but it's an expensive product and it really didn't do anything for me. I switched to a product I found at Sally Beauty - European Secrets Hoofer's Choice - cheaper and you get more - and it works great.

I really have liked this product for a long time. It is addictive. It does help alleviate cuticle dryness but, even with continued, frequent, long-term use and pushing of my cuticles, I still had excess cuticle skin. I tried Cuticle Eraser from CND (Creative Nail Design) and found that my cuticles benefitted from the change. Still, it's hard to give up my Poshe, but it is impossible for me to not admit that the Cuticle Eraser is better. I haven't ever tried Mango Mend, but I've read that it is excellent, too.
Both Cuticle Eraser and Poshe Cuticle Care are at the side of my computer. I use them both during the day, but I do not think I will replace my stash of Poshe when it runs out.

*Edit* While this cuticle cream still performs well, I can no longer recommend it. I bought 4 tubes at one time and have opened 3 of them. Two of the 3 opened tubes have cracked near the top and the product now leaks out the side in large globs instead of squeezing out in a thin line. One of the tubes has been on my bedstand and the other on my office desk, so these have not been squashed in a purse or handled roughly. I can't recommend a product in such a fragile container when there are equally good products with superior packaging.**
This stuff is fantastic. I keep a tube in my purse and use it when I have some down time at work. It smells good and keeps my cuticles moisturized. My cuticles have a tendency to thicken up, but since using this they stay nice and neat. Daily use of this cream makes manicures a breeze. It's a little pricey, but if you shop around you can find some good deals that make it just a little more than something you'd find at a drugstore.

Love this cuticle treatment! This is the first time I've used and bought a cuticle cream with AHA's, and the difference in my cuticles is amazing! I still hae to deal with dry, ragged cuticles on my hands, but only if I've forgotten to apply the cream on a daily basis (I wash my hands very often, so for those of you that don't, this would probably take a lot longer to happen).
The most effective usage of this product (for me) is to apply after cuticle oil. It seals in the moisture and gets rid of the excess dryness the cuticle oil cannot penetrate, finally I put on hand cream/lotion and my hands look perfect.
The only reason I marked "no" for buying this product again is because I want to try CND's version and compare the two. if not for that, this would be a certain repurchase.

Good treatment which is effective for keeping cuticles moisturised. The AHA exfoliates slightly which makes pushing the cuticles back easier. I'm not sure the same effect can't be achieved by using an AHA cream, however regardless I would still buy again. I would still use a separate cream for added moisturisation though - the best I've found so far is Lush's Lemony Flutter.

I actually got a free sample of this product. It worked really well and I would use it again. I am currently using OPI cuticle remover and I would say this stuff works better than OPI.

Once again Poshe has made a big difference in the life of my nail care.
This awesome cream is glycerin based(which is great some little ifo ladies......always buy hand lotions that have glycerine in them....not mineral oil).
The important stuff......It contains milk protein, jojoba oil, aloe, and AHA's, that exfoliates away the dry stuff. yay!
Its light, absorbs well, not greasy... yay! Does not have a yukky smell.... (like the medicinal smelling horse 'hoof' product does. Also that one was way too thick and of course doesn't have any ahas in it, though it does have the protein like this one. So to each their own. Actually I use that one at night sometimes)
This Poshe cuticle cream really does make your cuticles smoother and your nails stronger. It also moisturizes, smooths out and refines the skin near nails and (hands if you apply it there)
It's a little pricey at your local stores....so buy it online at any online nail e-tailor store that has high ratings from customers.
You can buy it for under $5.00 at the top 3 stores.
Try this one! Its awesome! It will help your nails be more moisturized, stronger and grow without peeling off in layers....which was a problem for me. P.S. also to stop the peeling you need to buy a good basecoat treatment and a glass/crystal file....(regular emery boards cause tearing and therefore makes nails peel) The combo of these will help you have wonderful looking nails.
Also, if you like.... you could look at my other reviews to see what other products have helped my once horrible....... thin, weak, bending back and forth and slow growing nails look so much better. It may save you some cash and not waste money on other products... like I did and most people. Though, obviously some works for others and it may not work for you. But, always give those high good reviews on here for nail strengtheners or any nail products at least a month before judging. The nails will need to get rid of the weak parts first and the new growth should appear better...if not and you know its horrible on your nails, quit and try another....like I said some work for people and some don't.
Good luck.... ;)

Stunning, fast results. No more shelling out money for manicures and cuticle trims. Within a week of regular use (one quick cuticle massage a.m. and one in p.m.), my ragged, dry, painful cuticles have been transformed. Love this stuff!

Great stuff! I don't need to use a cuticle remover, fast and effective, Perfect!!

Just to affirm what the other reviewers have said...this product has completely changed my nails. I LOVE IT.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Sensitive, Fair Hair: Blond Eyes: Blue
I love this product! After reading the reviews on here, I was so excited to use it that I put it on in the car as as soon as I bought it, again a few hours later, and again right before bed (it says to only use it once or twice a day). By the time I woke up, my raggedy, raw and sore cuticles were perfectly healed - I have no idea how it does this but it's wonderful. And it's a very convenient package and doesn't spill like messy oil. Love it!
