I suppose you could say that the packaging is a little "unusual". I use this almost every night (when I remember and can be bothered!) In the pictures it actually doesn't show you that it is a hard balm, because I was out taking the pictures in 30°c heat and by the time I got to photographing this is a had melted slightly!
Anyway, to apply you have to swirl your finger around the tin for a little while to warm it up. When you think you have enough apply to cuticles. It does take few minutes to sink in, but as I read before bed it is the best time to do it. So when I am ready to go to bed, it has all sunk it.
I can tell that my cuticles look and feel about nourished and better looking in general.
Have you tried this? What nail care do you use?
This is a scheduled post, as I'm away on holiday and won't be back until 3rd August.
