Things I like about this product: 
* Nice scent.
* Absorbs fairly quickly.
* Moisturizes and soothes rough cuticles.

Things that are 'meh' about this product:
* It's kind of pricey compared to other options.
* Because it's an oil, you have to be careful not to drip it everywhere. I prefer a cuticle balm for this reason.
* It doesn't seem to make a lasting difference to the state of my cuticles or nails. If I stop using it, they shrivel right up again.
* I need a product with AHAs to help remove dead skin cells (i.e. a cuticle remover), not just moisturize them. 

I'll probably repurchase if I see it on the clearance rack at Rite Aid, but will also keep my eye out for other options.

This stuff is just ok. It seems to get the job done, but it's not my new favorite thing.

I think I will probably use this at night before bed and keep using Solar Oil(my favorite) during the day, since this stuff seems to tinge my cuticles slightly orange. Nothing drastic, but still not a good look.

The smell to me is shampoo-ish.

My nails are always polished so in between polishes after removal I always apply this oil on my tired cuticles to salvage them. I never run out and highly recommend it! I like to apply it liberally over my whole nail and cuticle and rub it in until my hands are warm to get the full benefits.

This is so easy to use and smells delicious! It leaves my cuticles well moisturized and lasts for a good while. Super easy to use and apply! Even though some may think it’s pricey, I’ve had it for about a year now and I’m not even close to half way through! Go buy!

This is my second time buying this and it definitely won’t be my last. I have the most dry and disgusting cuticles and no matter what I try they stay gross. Until I found this, they quit peeling and cracking and I’m finally not embarrassed of my hands anymore. I think they may have changed the formula a little bit because it’s thicker and less messy now and it also smells better (less like oil and more like apricot yum!) the thickness seems to make it a tad more potent too as I find myself able to use less, for clarity, I ran out for months before I was able to buy more because of circumstances so my cuticles were dreadful this time around and after only two days with this stuff looked about 70% better.

I got this in a duo set with the gel setter and I love both! This apricot cuticle hydrator nourishes and softens the cuticles. It also helps protect from us dryness and provides nursing moisture to the cuticles. It absorbs quickly and instantly conditions for smoother, softer, and healthy looking cuticles. It rehydrates and revitalizes the cuticle and nail bed. I would highly recommend to anyone with hangnails or dry skin!

Love this product so much I don’t know what I would do without this product my life. And it was not that expensive. Definitely a great value. This product has so many pros I don’t know where to even begin. Over all there is no cons to this product

I’m a nurse so I frequently wash my hands abs or use tons of hand sanitizer my cuticles get extremely dry and break open. This cuticle oil really has made a huge difference.

I don’t tend to have issues with my cuticles, but when I do, I go for my essie apricot cuticle oil. It’s gentle on my skin, doesn’t smell terrible, and is affordable. It’s a must have for anyone who takes pride in their nails.

This cuticle oil definitely helped with the never ending dry patches around my cuticles. The smell is very pleasant and discreet and it really simple to use. You literally apply it around your cuticles like you would nail polish on your nails. Since there you only need to use a little bit on each finger it last fairly long, so definitely a good bang for your buck. :)

Does it have a super strong chemical smell? Or any smell at all?
