A little while ago, I picked up this Sally Hansen cuticle cream because it was on sale for half off at Walgreens. I don't usually do anything special with my nails and cuticles. I'm pretty low maintenance with them. I clip or file my nails weekly. I push my cuticles weekly and I try to remember to use hand cream and cuticle creams daily. I love painting my nails with a new and cool nail polishes and having healthy cuticles is important. I'm fortunate that they are generally in good shape so I don't have to do much with them.

- This little pot looks like an eye cream jar and contains .48 oz or 13.6 g of product. I honestly really dislike this type of packaging because it would mean that I'd have to dip my fingers into the pot and get creams all over the inside of my nails, which is a huge pet peeve for me. My only consolation is that I got it on sale, it's supposed to be good for my cuticles, and I wanted to review it for you.
- This cuticle treatment comes in form of a very light cream that looks like it's been air whipped. A little goes a long way.
- The cream is thin, absorbs fairly quickly, doesn't feel greasy, and helps moisturizing your cuticles. Now, as far as the moisturizing goes, it helps but won't do much. If you have very dry and cracked skin around your cuticles, you'd need something more heavy duty than this. I find that the conditioning effect doesn't last very long and you'd definitely need to reapply after you wash your hands because soaps will strip this cream off your cuticles. If your cuticles need serious help, I would recommend the Dior Creme Abricot nail cream.
- It has a soft pleasant floral scent.
It's ok for daily use to help keep your cuticles hydrated and in good shape but I prefer something more moisturizing and longer lasting. It's not potent enough to heal severely dried cuticles, moisturizing effect doesn't last very long, and washes away easily. Overall, it's just an ok product. I wouldn't repurchase though.
