Yes, it works really well. My cuticles were very stubborn and I would try to push them back and even cut them sometimes and they became very hard and difficult to manage. I wanted to start painting my nails and needed my cuticles to behave. My cuticles softened up and started looking better in only a matter of days. I try to use it once or twice a day. You don't need to use a lot, it's easier to use at night right before bed, so it doesn't get washed off by accident during your daily routines. It smells good too.
