The first thing to note is the beautiful lemon scent, which I adore; it's quite a strong scent, however, so it might put those with sensitive skins or noses off. I'd say this product has more of a balm-like texture than a traditional cream, being quite thick and waxy to the touch. It melts on contact with the skin, whereupon it's easy to spread around the cuticles and massage in. It does leave a slight oily residue on the skin, which is why I prefer to use this as part of my bedtime routine rather than through the day. However, I've found it works well to re-hydrate my cuticles overnight, meaning they're not feeling as rough and delicate by the time I wake up. This is definitely a product that I see better results from when I (remember to) use it three or four days running.
