I have awful cuticles. They stick up and they crack and peel and bleed and hurt. I've had persistent hangnails, lots of them, since I was five years old. And this little balm — a drugstore impulse buy — fixed them! They now look like I've just had an expensive manicure, all day, every day, neat, pretty, well-behaved. And no more hangnails. Wow.That said, I don't love it. I don't really like the synthetic melon smell. I'm not crazy about the super greasy feel it has on my fingertips, or about the aforementioned grayish cuticle-gunk look it leaves you with while it gets absorbed (which isn't fast). So I use it at night, before bed, and I apply it with a lip brush, so I can go as light and localized as possible with the application.My nails also seem to be significantly stronger since I started using it, which isn't very surprising as my main nail issue is dryness and brittleness (and ridginess, but that's a talk for another time). All in all, a very effective product with some issues. If you're cuticle-challenged, it will help you. If you're looking for something to keep in your bag to moisturize your cuticles/nails on the go, this is not it. Will I buy it again? I'm not sure. I will probably try Badger's Balm first and take it from there.

Alright. So the packaging is nice... the cute little balm jar it comes in and then the product itself which looks like a green and white spiral that sucks you straight into cuticle HELL! This stuff claims to be moisturizing, Holy crow is that ever a lie?? My cuticles and ALL around my fingers are SO dry and are CRACKING! I mean, desert ground cracking!I thought I had a hang nail and what do you know, it turned out to be a GIANT chunk of skin that left my finger burning for DAYS! I know it is this product that did this to my fingers because it is the only thing different that I have put on my nails. Never will I buy this product again nor would I give it to my worst enemy. I think I may just set it on fire to ensure that no one can use it by mistake.Point made?

Ughhh. I can't believe I'm the only one star review, I haaaated this stuff. I have "problem" cuticles and am normally a snob when it comes to their care. They're rough, scratchy, and super dry. I ran out of Dior Creme D'Abricot and saw this at the grocery store, so I grabbed it hoping I could save some money. I mean, how big of a difference can there be? As it turns out, a BIG one. I could even deal with the grayish cast that other reviewers have mentioned, if only it worked. Unfortunately it did nothing to erase my cuticles and the moisture was slight and fast to fade. Honestly, olive oil works better.

I really like this. My cuticles grow insanely and I wash my hands a lot so I have pretty nasty cuticles. I know some will cringe at this but my cuticles can get so out of hand that I have to soak them in Sally Sansen Instant Cuticle Remover (blue bottle) and cut them. This product won't "erase" them completely. But, It does make them appear extremely soft and pretty. I love that this doesn't contain apricot oil! Apricot oil does nothing for my cuticles besides make them oily. Since using this balm nightly for two weeks, I've noticed some positive results.1. Nails seem to be growing2. Nail tips appear super white3. Nails are a lot stronger. I'm prone to horizontal splits above the nail tip. Nails are thin and tips tend to flip in and out causing spits above the tip line. Since using this balm, no more splits.4. Nail surface appears to be smoothier and healthier.Some complained about the green tint. To fix that. 1. You only need a tiny amount for all 10 nails. 2. Dip your index finger in the pot and rub your index finger and thumb together waming the product up. This will cause the swirled colors to melt together. No green tint.

I'm not gonna lie, the cute packaging is what got me here. It reminds me of one of those lollipop shaped lipglosses that have two different colors swirled in the gloss (nostalgiagasm)---Cute!!! I finally received one of these for Christmas a couple years ago. As someone with awful, brittle nails (every guy I've dated has had nicer nails than me; they're that bad), I also experience dry, cracking, and all around disgusting cuticles. This cute little balm was definitely worth a shot. My cuticles softened immediately, and even my little hangnails were less noticeable. I believe using this every day would be the best thing to do. I should, but I only use it occasionally just because I'm convinced my nails are a lost cause. I only gave four lippies because the smell is kind of overwhelming and it feels a little greasy on my hands for a while after I apply it. Overall, great product, and I would definitely buy again!

This product looked really intriguing---it comes in a nice round little container and the balm itself consists of green and white swirls. I really wanted to like this balm, but overall I would say it is pretty mediocre. While it does moisturize, the color of the balm gives a grayish cast on the cuticles---even when rubbed in---that can make your nails look almost dirty. I also find it is not long lasting, although the quantity you get may last you quite a while even if you use it often. I do like the understated cucumber fragrance, and the convenience of the packaging though as you could really take it anywhere.Bottom line, in my opinion, is it's an average product. Three lippies. There is probably something better out there, but for the price, it is decent.

I'm in two minds over this one. On the plus side it does moisturise my cuticles well - and doesn't leave then feeling dry again in a few hours. It also smells lovely. But on the minus side - the attractive white and green swirl combines to a light green that actually looks grey when it collects near the cuticle. It's an ugly look. It works well for night time but I actually bought it to pop in my handbag because oils don't travel. I might have to try some Burts Bees instead. All up it works. But I won't buy again.

Recently i've been 'collecting' cuticle treatments, removers, softeners, oils and cremes. This one caught my eye at the supermarket so i tossed it in the cart. Things i like, or love, the smell - gorgeous melon fresh scent - really nice, and the texture, a thick cream that slips on nicely, slightly sticky but in a good way that stays put rather than slides around. The small flat pot is lovely, easy to open, and easy to access and very easy to slip into a handbag. things I hate, I read on reviews that some people disliked the color, the swirl of green and white as when used it leaves nails looking dirty. I couldn't imagine how this would work but after using the creme a few times - i see what they mean, the green and white merge into a greyish white creme that sits next to my cuticles and looks dirty. ugh! 20 minutes later most of this has soaked into my nails and skin - but until then i look like my hands need a good scrub. Maybe i should put this on at night, just before sleeping so it will soak in overnight, but for the $ i think i get more from Lush Lemony flutter, its half the price and four times as much and doesn't leave my nails looking like i haven't washed recently.

My search for a good cuticle oil/ balm/ cream ends here. I have dry cuticles, and the sides around my nails are always dry too, since I use acetone polish remover. This cuticle balm really moisturizes my nails well. After just a few days of usage, I could already see a change. Unlike most cuticle oils/ balms that I have used, my cuticles don't go back to being dry after a few hours of application of this balm. After a few days of usage, I no longer had dry cuticles, and the sides if nails weren't dry either. And yes, it does get rid of dry cuticles and hangnails. However, unlike the other reviews that I have read, this product doesn't give my nails a "dirty green look" after application. Guess it's probably cus I just take a small amount (aka gently sliding my finger across the balm's surface) for every application.
