I can't really decide if I like this product or not, Though my nails look neater after using, I'm not sure if it is just because I pushed the cuticles back or if this product is actually working.
Also, as someone else mentioned, the applicator is horrible. Using this product is very messy, and the tip of the tube should be pointed to better direct the cream.
Probably won't repurchase.

I like this product. If you have dry cuticles this works.The method of delivery is fine with me. I like the container. If I run out I will definitely buy again. However the container will last a long time.

Strangely, the instructions on the box differ from those on the nicely designed tube.
Apply liberally around the base of each nail, ensuring even coverage. After 2 minutes, gently push back cuticles with a cuticle pusher or manicure stick. Wash off with warm water. Do not leave on for more than 5 minutes. Do not use more than twice weekly.
Squeeze a thin strip around the cuticles and under nail tips. After 2 minutes, gently push back cuticles with cuticle pusher or manicure stick. ... then the rest is the same.
I thought that deserved mentioning since Sally Hansen seems confused as to how to use this product. Since you're going to throw the box away, some of the info is going to be mixed.
I have been using this product for the last four months. I find it works no better or worse than the Aloe Cuticle Gel by Sally Hansen.
As far as results go, I have been happy with the continuation of the care to my cuticles I have received by this product and the prior SH Aloe Cuticle Gel. It's successful in that I don't have many if any at all hangnails, uneven or saggy cuticles, and if you use once a week, your manicures (and pedicures) look so much better, since you have way more space to move around the nail color.
But I really hate the messy application. There is no pointed applicator tip. You basically have to put this on your fingertips then rub into the cuticle. That's a downside. The entire time I'm rubbing on with my fingers, I am imagining the acids wearing down my fingertips. I don't like the application at all while the product itself is soft and cream like.
I do not think I will be repurchasing just because it's so messy. I have two other gel cuticle removers in line after this is done and I think I'll be looking forward to trying those.
