This product is amazing. I go to salon centric to get it, because I have a license, so I get it for cheaper. You apply this on the cuticle, and I usually let it sit for 30 seconds to a minute. I then wipe it a little and push the cuticle. So much comes off and I do not need to cut a lot. It saves a lot of time and cleans the cuticle and dead skin so well!
