It works okay, no miracles but no major complaints either. I would describe the texture as more waxy and a little bit gritty than "buttery." It doesn't absorb as quickly or nicely as an oil product, so ironically it creates more of a mess when it transfers than a straight oil would. I think there's too much beeswax in the formula. It would also be a much better product if they cut out the lemon oil, but hey, it wouldn't be a Burt's Bees product if it didn't have unnecessary scaremongering of the "unnatural" products it's made without while simultaneously being packed full of potentially irritating and obnoxious smelling natural ingredients.

If you're looking for a very temporary fix, this works. But the effects don't last long.

After a while, it also becomes VERY difficult to open the lid.

Pros:
- Smells nice and fresh
- Makes nails look healthy

Cons:
- Effects don't last long at all (less than an hour)
- No long term effects
- Lid can be impossible to open

A brilliant treatment for my cuticles leaving them looking great and in general the skin around my nails is chaffing less and looks so much better. It's quite heavy (made up of various oils and cocoa butter after all) so I use it only on a night time, massaging in and then leaving to sink in for about 10 minutes whilst I get on with the rest of my routine. I find it transfers so anything that involves touching any kind of paper must be dealt with before applying this! The lemon scent is comforting and helps clear my head at the end of the day. I've used quite a few cuticle treatments but so far this is my favorite.

I've used this, and it's pretty good. It has a thick texture and smells like lemons. It soothes the cuticles and basically does what a cuticle cream should do. I apply a dab directly on each cuticle and massage it in until it disappears. This works, but it's not my favorite. First of all, I don't care for the packaging and would prefer a tube. Second, I prefer a multi purpose ointment like Elizabeth Arden's Eight Hour Cream or Aquaphor. It's a good product, but I probably won't buy again.

This stuff is AMAZING. Have been using for years and is definitely a HG product. Can’t count how many times I’ve repurchased. I live in a mountainous very dry climate and nothing - I mean NOTHING else works like this when it comes to keeping my cuticles from being dry disasters. I also use on my elbows and any dry areas on my hands. If I don’t use it in the morning I notice the rest of the day and it drives me crazy until I put it on. Definite must-have.

I am so addicted to this product. I have it out at least 3 times a day ... I use it on my cuticles and my hands... it is the best out there... the smell is of lemon and it has a silky smooth texture....sort of like a shea butter. Works wonders. My cuticles and hands have never looked so good. No longer dry and cracking.

My real nail area problem is the eponychium (skin around the sides of the nail), which, for me, is chronically rough, dry, and jagged. Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream is the first thing I've tried that really softens my eponychia, and keeps them that way until I wash my hands. I like to use it while watching TV, shortly before bedtime, which gives it a chance to sink in overnight; it's particularly effective if I use lotion afterwards, which seems to seal in the moisture. I spend a good 30 seconds or more just rubbing it into each nail and the surrounding area, and I can feel the skin softening beneath my fingertips as I work. Smells great, just like fresh lemons.

It is hard to get out of the tin at room temperature, so, if I remember, I sit on it for a few minutes before using.

Original review: It's a good product, but not great.

Pros:
- love the smell and non-gritty texture;
- it fully absorbs in 10 minutes (way faster than Badger);
- I love the packaging, super cute, small, light and easy to open.

Cons:
- it takes much more time to apply a cuticle cream compare to oils that have nail polish like brush or cuticle care pens;
- it works great if I apply it twice daily. I have to apply significant amount and I have to make sure I rubbed it well into cuticles, that takes up to 5 minutes at least for both hands and feet, twice daily makes nearly 10 minutes a day spend on rubbing cream into the cuticles... I rather spend my time on something better than that.

Not sure I'll buy again, I prefer nail care pens.

UPDATE: A dry winter weather came and it totally stopped working. I won't buy it again.
