Akamuti Cuticle Moon Butter

I can't stop biting my cuticles, I'm pensive and I release my nerves like this. I'll stop it, one day -.-' 
I've read good reviews about Akamuti's balm, so after finishing my Badger's one and DR Bronner's one, I took this. 
The consistency is different from the other two, this is more of a buttery mousse, very pleasant to apply. Its smell is quite intense, it smells of fresh limes and you might perceive a touch of vegetal oil in the background. 

Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil (Olea europea), Organic Macadamia Nut Oil (Macadamia integrifolia), Organic Beeswax (Cera alba), Organic Fair Trade Honey, Organic Cocoa Butter (Theobroma cacao), Lavender Essential Oil (Lavendula angustifolia), Lime Essential Oil (Citrus aurantifolia), Organic Lemon Essential Oil (Citrus limon).  

Regarding nails, it does a great job at making them stronger and shinier day after day. Unfortunately for my extremely dry cuticles and chopped hand skin, it isn't nourishing enough. I like it as a daytime hand cream since it absorbs pretty well, just leaving your skin a bit shiny (for me it is not a problem). Since it has this soft consistency, I would hardly recommend to also use it as a scrub for cuticles by mixing it with a little of sugar. Try it and let me know! :)
