I never had a problem with my cuticles until about a year ago when they began to always look cracked and dry. The first product I tried was Burt's Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream, and I've never looked back. It is a wonderfully moisturizing product, more like a balm than a cream, and smells exactly like fresh lemons. It can be a bit greasy, but once you have waited a few minutes, it sinks right into the skin and goes to work. I could see a big difference after only one or two applications. I use it every morning and night, and my cuticles look normal again! I keep my nails short, and don't bother with polish, and the Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream makes my nails shine beautifully, almost as if they have been buffed. It contains lemon and almond oil, beeswax, cocoa butter, rosemary extract, and comes in a cute little round tin, which is the perfect size to carry with you everywhere you go. One time I discovered that I had left my lip balm at home and tried this instead, and it worked great!
