I got this from a Priceline goodie bag and the moment I opened the lid, I'm hooked! I'll probably use this even if it doesn't work well just for the addictive lemon smell! That's how much I love this cuticle cream and thankfully it's awesome as well!
I usually use this after removing my nail polish and use it all day, usually more than 15 times and wait the next day before putting a new coat of nail polish. I then put some again on my nails before applying the base coat.
My nails break easily and very thin and I have noticed since using this cuticle cream my nails became thicker. It still breaks occasionally but not as bad as before. My cuticles are softer as well.
I love that it comes in a tin although not very hygienic but I'm not that fuss about that. It's easy to use and you just have to rub your fingertips and rub it on your nails.
I've been using this for a few months now and still haven't used 1/4 of it! I think it will last me for a year which is good value for money.

Best cuticle cream ever
I love this product! The tin is adorable.
The smell is amazing. Its not that artificial supersweet lemonesque smell.
More like you were walking under a lemon tree and smelt a big nice lemon this is the scent you'd find.
The product is thick and its so easy to go overboard because it feels amazing to lather on and rub into your fingers.
However a little goes a long way. The formula is slightly granularly but as you rub it in it just melts into your skin, leaving it feeling moisturised, protected and smelling amazing! will have to repurchase as I've started hitting the bottom of the tin!

Smells good enough to eat
I'm not big on hand/cuticle creams - but this one I'm addicted to!
It doesn't leave you with a feeling of oily or greasy left over and it smells divine.

LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!
This is the BEST cuticle product I have ever used, hands down! I swear by it. The added bonus is that it's not greasy, and it smells fantastic! I have to confess, I even have a tin I bought especially to use as a lip balm. The only downside to it, is that it's a little hard to deal with when you have longer nails (the small tin). I really wish they'd put it in a stick-form like a lip balm. The product is solid enough to keep its shape if they did. I would recommend it to anyone and everyone.

Lemony, buttery goodness!
I'll start by stating the negatives - it's a little pricey, compared to some of the others on the market and it comes in one of those fiddly little tins that, when you have slightly damp hands, can be quite tricky to prise open.
Aside from those points above, it's actually an excellent product! I love the lemony scent, which, if you're not a fan of, you'd hate this! It's a thick balm, rather than a cream, as the name would suggest, and a little goes a long way.
Additionally, as you don't need to use much of it in one go, the price actually doesn't matter in the end, as it's good value for money.
I find that this softens the cuticles quite well, and it is easy to apply just prior to going to bed. And, as it is solid, I won't have to worry about it counting as a liquid on the plane!

I won a deluxe sized sample of this in a Burt's Bees competition a while back and I use it at night before sleeping when my nails are particularly dry or weak after nail polish removal. The formula of the creme is more of a buttery texture (rather than a creme) with an almost-grainy feeling but it melts onto the fingers and leaves them hydrated and a little sticky. The sticky feeling does go away after 5 minutes or so once it is absorbed into the skin. The scent is mouth-wateringly delicious and it always makes me crave lemon meringue as soon as I open the jar. My nails look and feel much healthier and stronger ever since I started using this and the beneficial effects are obvious after 2-3 times of usage. I've finally made a small dent on the surface of the creme after having this for a month and I can see it lasting me for another good while yet!

5 stars for the smell alone!
Thankyou BH for including this in my 2013 BIB prize pack and introducing me to this wonderful product.
Firstly, this cuticle creme comes packaged in a little metal tin, with a standard lid which can sometimes be hard to lift off as it has no screw mechanism. The lid has a picture of a lemon on it which is very fitting considering the product smells AMAZINGLY like a lemon, so fresh and I absolutely love the smell it leaves on my fingers.
I apply the waxy balm around each finger nail before bed, and I have definitely noticed an improvement in my cuticles- no more little sticky outy bits that are painful to get rid of. I have also noticed less peeling in my nails which is fantastic. This product should last at least a year as well, which is great value for money. Overall a lovely product that I will continue to repurchase.

I purchased this little gem in Hawaii after my cuticles became so dry after the flight. It worked wonders, i have continued to use this cuticle creme day to day and it keeps my nails and cuticles well nourished and prevents cracking and peeling.
