Remove the protective plastic wrapper, which is the most difficult of the process. Look for the serrated markings down the side of the pen. Then remove the cap. Twist the bottom numerous times until a bit of the oil/emollient comes out of the tip. Wipe over cuticles and twist the cap to release more emollient as necessary. Recap tightly when finished.

Take the paper off; take the cap off; turn the grooved end opposite the brush a couple times and you'll see thick oil beginning to come out. Don't overdo the turning.

once you peel off the wrapper you have to twist the top several clicks as you press it against your nail. It will eventually start to flow into the brush and onto your nails.

If you're looking down on the twist end (the pen pointed away from you), turn the twist part clockwise and keep going (it takes a few revolutions the first time) until the product comes out on the brush.

Remove the clear wrapping. Turn the top of the pen a few times until a small amount of oil appears in the brush. Lightly brush some of your nails and then twist the pen for one or two clicks to ensure that the brush has oil on it. It's a brilliant product that you can use throughout the day and at night. Just allow a few minutes for it to dry before you touch anything.

I''ve used this pen and the Sephora-OPI cuticle oil. This pen puts out the same amount of cuticle oil/emollient with every "click". You control the Sephora/OPI pen and I've ended up with a 'glob' instead of just a little dab. Both pens are effective, I like the neatness of this pen but love OPI's cuticle oil; it's thicker.

answer 7
The OPI Brush-on Cuticle Pen works well, but I've found that it is more oily and does absorb as quickly as the Cuticle Care Pen. The smell is not that great either. I've found the Cuticle Care Pens (all 3 versions) to have appealing smells.

I do like being able to apply as much as I want, as opposed to having to keep twisting like with the Cuticle Care Pens. My thumbs and index fingers are always in worse condition than the other fingers, so it is nice being able to use more oil with just one application.

I prefer the Cuticle Care Pens, but the OPI pen is a good alternative if you are looking for something less expensive and that probably supplies more oil.

I had the same problem with the first one I bought. It seemed like I was turning that thing forever and nothing was coming out. All I can say is just keep turning, you can tell when the oil starts to come out. If you are like me the first couple time you will get more than you need, but with regular use, you will get the hang of it.

You have to keep turning the bottom. A bunch will gush out at once, but after that only a little bit comes out at a time. It's like using one of those felt-tip markers for the first time...you have to prime it a bit first. I've also found warming up the pen helps make the oil come out easier. I warm up the pen by rolling it in my hands.

When I first started using it, my cuticles were in horrible shape, so I used it about 4 or 6 times a day. I noticed an immediate difference, and by the 5th day my cuticles looked and felt completely healthy.

After my cuticles had healed, I found that I only needed to use it once a day (usually I used it before bedtime) and then would apply it as needed (for touch ups on specific fingers.) It is all about quality over quantity, especially after your cuticles have healed. I've even gone a few days without using it, but I've found that using it once a day is the best for maintenance.

The problem with using it a few times a day is that the pen will run out very quickly. You'll have to buy a new one within a week. That's over $60 a month!

What I suggest is that you buy 2 pens at once. Use the first pen as often as you'd like. Once your cuticles have healed, just use the pen once (or twice at most) a day. With 2 pens, you won't have to worry about the first one running out-- which it will quickly if your cuticles are in bad condition (my first pen only lasted 5 days!) The second pen should last a while with just 1 or 2 daily applications.

I have eucalyptus. The fragrance you choose will obviously be subjective. If you're unsure, buy all three! You can't go wrong with this product.

answer 2
I've bought and used all three types interchangeably. The only noticeable difference is the smell. The lavender is definitely the best-smelling. All three work effectively if you want relief from damaged, cracked cuticles.

There are a few subtle differences that I've noticed. The lavender made my cuticles look healthier, while the eucalyptus helped relieve the redness. The original is good overall for relieving hardness and dryness and for keeping the cuticles hydrated.

I personally like the eucalyptus because sometimes my cuticles crack and start bleeding. The eucalyptus is supposed to be the best for healing.

I first started with the original before trying out the other two. Don't worry about which one to choose. Try one, and if you like it, maybe try the other ones later. They all work great!!

The lavender is excellent aromatherapy and the formula has vitamins to slow the growth of the cutlicles so you can add this to your nails and they do become much more managable. I work in a rough enviornment for my hands and this makes me feel so great at the end of the day knowing I have it close by to take care of my cuticles.

Mine usually last 3 weeks or more. I tend to pretty liberal applications, so it might last longer for others. For me, the value of this product is that I actually use it. I've purchased more expensive cuticle creams, but I destroyed two leather bags with leaky bottles. These are so inexpensive, I buy several and keep one in my purse, one with my nail care products and one in my home office. I find myself using them at least once a day, sometimes several. You will love these!
