Rave! This product has been a life changer for me! I never liked to cut my cuticles much because even though they looked okay at first--a few days later they'd look ragged. Plus I had a tendency to overcut. Well I tried several drugstore cuticle remover gels and I was not very successful. While they removed a portion of the cuticle, they don't remove it very thoroughly so that didn't solve my problem. Deborah Lippmann cuticle remover has changed everything and been my holy grail! It is precisely what I was looking for to get a neat, natural appearance to my nails. I apply the remover to all my cuticles on one hand(I don't soak my nails prior), wait about 30 seconds, then I use the Deborah Lippmann cuticle pusher tool (also highly recommended) and I push the cuticles back with some pressure, running it along the nail bed. Then do the other hand. For me this method dissolves the obvious and unsightly part of the cuticle, leaving behind a more refined and clean appearance. I do follow up with Deborah Lippmann cuticle oil and cream. I do this once a week and my cuticles are looking much better than ever before. I do recommend giving it at least 3 weeks because it seems to be a cumulative effect--the 2nd week I was able to get rid of more cuticle than the first. Also daily moisturizing of cuticles is helpful in the process.
**I do recommend buying the Deborah Lippmann cuticle kit--you will get the pusher tool, remover, oil, and cream.

I have been doing my own manis and pedis for about 5 years now. I use the brush to apply, not the dropper, after soaking my hands in soapy water for about 3 minutes. This enables me to push my cuticles back gently and removes the dead skin. I wasn't sure this was my HG product for a long time, to be honest, but I haven't found anything that is as close to as effective so I can now say definitively that this is my HG cuticle remover and I will be repurchasing it shortly.

This is the best remover I've ever used- no question about it. I can't believe how FAST, gentle, & effective this is. I never have dried, ragged cuticles with this. I just very simply brush it on, & it does all the work. There's no period where my cuticles look bad with this. When I use it on a regular basis, my cuticles always look great. Best purchase- highly recommend!

Decided on this splurge when I was a ULTA the other day. Overall very high rating and I love her glitter polish so I took the plunge.

I currently use Blue Cross (BC) cuticle remover, and I will be comparing this DL product to the BC. This cuticle remover is liquid-gel in consistency and thicker than BC. I am not really liking the thickness of the DL cuticle remover. If there is air in the dropper during application, it bubbles.

This product does soften cuticles very nicely. I find I have to have the product on for 1 minute before I push back my cuticles. Works slower then BC, but same results...loose dry cuticle is easy wiped away.

The steep pricey of this cuticle remover will prevent me from repurchasing this item. I will finish this bottle up as it does work. I'm saving the bottle and will reuse it for my Blue Cross.

This stuff is magic! It instantly dissolves rough, jagged cuticles. I've never used anything that was this effective (and so quickly). Even though it's $20 USD, I gave it 5 lippies on Price because of the money that will be saved on weekly manicures!

I bought this based on the reviews and was excited to try it. I used this on one hand and Cutique on the other to compare it. Unfortunatelly this is going back because it does the same thing as Cutique which is alot cheaper. In fact, I think the other one was a little better. I didn't like the formula either because it was bubbly and made it hard to see what I'm doing. The search continues as I don't really like either of them, I see them as cuticle softner not ...remover.

This WILL give you nice-looking cuticles, I guarantee you. I have particularly stubborn cuticles and this works wonders. I have never achieved cuticles this nice with any other cuticle remover(including Blue Cross). Just put some on, wait 3 minutes(for stubborn/first time user) and push back with a metal cuticle pusher. You can also try lightly scraping your cuticle area after you've pushed them back, to get off all the dead skin. Wash off by putting some soap and water on a nailbrush and clean your nails with it.

I push back my cuticles once a week. This product is wonderful every time--gentle, but removes effectively. I had trouble mastering how long to leave it on--if you don't leave it on for long enough, it doesn't work as well, but if you leave it on for too long, it dries. The time I settled on was about 30 seconds. I leave it on for 30 seconds and then use an orangewood stick to push my cuticles back and buff off the dead skin. Nine times out of ten I don't have to nip anything. I always wash my hands after use as well. $20 is a lot for a cuticle remover, and so I would like to try other brands. However, this one is effective, and I will use it up and repurchase if I don't find an effective, cheaper alternative.

This is the first cuticle remover product I have tried. I have read about several less expensive drugstore and discount beauty brands also being extremely effective, yet also potentially over-drying. I wanted to start out with something a little more gentle so chose this first.


I use it maybe 2-3x a week, as a first step to clean up my bare nails/cuticles before putting on a new coat of polish. Brush it on one hand at a time, wait a minute or two, then push back the cuticles with an orange stick. (It also comes with a little eyedropper if you prefer to dab it on that way, but I haven't used it.) Sometimes I'll need to do a 2nd pass on my thumbs and pinky, where the cutes are especially stubborn, but overall this is very effective. Then I make sure to wash up with soap and water before moving onto the next hand. I recommend washing up because the first time I used this, I left it on for too long (20mins) and it caused the top layer of my nail to begin peeling! So, I think it has some of the heavy duty power chemical in the less expensive brands, though maybe not quite as much. Still, it's a good idea to work quickly, wash it away, and moisturize well once you're done with the mani.


When bottle's empty, I'll try the cheap-o stuff before buying another DL remover and see which I prefer. For the time being, however, I like it and recommend it.

I decided to start doing manicures, I never paid attention to my nails before. My cuticles were overgrown and jagged. The cuticle remover smells great and worked beautifully. I easily pushed my cuticles back and my first home manicure turned out great, minus smudges when I didn't wait long enough before moving the laundry from the washer to the dryer. I don't have to worry about laundry at a salon, but home is much cheaper!
