Sally Hansen Manicure Cuticle Eraser + Balm is a neat little product I picked up the other day while at the store.

Ingredients for those who are curious.
The product itself is in a nice round container with a twisting seal. It's about the same size in diameter as Burt's Bees Lemon Butter cuticle cream container, but twice as tall it seems.
The balm itself is a swirl of green and white, which is fun, but we all know this fun spiral design is ruined the first time you use it.
When you rub it, the product comes off easily, very much like a balm. Nice and thin and easy to put on your nails and cuticles. Not much is needed, although it will stay a little green tinted until you rub it in completely, which can take awhile. No oily or greasiness here. I had fun putting it on my cuticles and then working on posts, which is hard to do with cuticle oil sometimes as it will run onto the keys. Yes, I've had that happen.
Overall, it's a nice product. It smells clean, hint of sweet cucumber and heavy lotion scent when you get close to it, but otherwise it's nothing bothersome or overpowering, which I appreciate. It's soft and easy to pick up a little on your fingertip, no digging necessary. You can apply it over nail polish and it doesn't do anything to your polish, which is nice.
I've been using it for a few weeks, usually daily but sometimes more than once a day or I'd go a few days without it. No drastic changes to my cuticles, but I've never been one to have really unruly cuticles. I think for people who just want a nice balm to moisturize and help with some double-tasking it would be great. It's easy to travel with - just put it in your purse and go so you can use it at work, on the bus, during a break, etc. It's going to last forever because you don't need that much. I've found with my usage I don't need to push my cuticles back as much, they stay groomed better, and when I do need to trim my cuticles, it's not as much or as often, so overall it's a winner!
Has anyone else tried this? Any thoughts of other product recommendations? My usual cuticle go to product currently (before this one) was the Sally Hansen Insant Cuticle Remover Maximum Strength which I think was a little too harsh for me, so I'm happily switching it up!
