The Herome oil is very effective. I have been applying it on my nails every night, one drop per finger and about 5-7 mins of rubbing around the nail. The effect is incredible! Almost no cuticles anymore, so when I get my manicure done I don't need to get the cuticles cut. For anyone suffering from a lot of dry skin and cuticles I highly recommend the product. For what it is, it seems a little expensive, but when you see the results you know it's very worth it!
