Burts Bees cuticle cream may be a hassle to apply but the result is soft cuticles, and healthier nail beds. I find that after use of the cuticle cream my cuticles seemed healthier and in turn created healthier nails. The fresh scent leaves a nice smell on your hands, but it can leave a shiny and irritating residue on your fingers.
The packaging is less than ideal, the metal container is difficult to open after the salve is applied, and would have been better off in a glass container. Based on the packaging alone, I would not buy another container of this cuticle cream as at times it seems impossible to open.
It does a satisfactory job of moisturizing but I discontinued use of the product because of the packaging, and the slickness, and thickness of the product after you were finished using it. Based on these factors, I used the product a few times after buying, but than it was retired to that drawer of products which aren't up to par.
The product could have been softer, and not so course in the package, this would have made it easier to apply.
