Pros: a little goes a long way, it nourishes and moisturizes cuticles, non-scented

Hey everyone! Smile

I can’t do without a cuticle oil. No matter how promising the claims of a hand and cuticle cream are, only a specific oil can make my nails good- and healthy-looking.

I’ve been using the Sally Hansen Vitamin E Nail & Cuticle Oil for about 5 years now.

The bottle has a pretty big amount of oil, which is 13.5 ml. This amount lasts me really long, but I don’t use it that often. I prefer applying the oil to my nails a few times per week. However, I write this review when there is only a little left Smile

The bottle is convenient to use and pretty, but it’s obvious that I’ve been using it for quite some time now Smile The golden cap looks shabby and the lettering came off a little.

Smell

It’s fragrance-free and I don’t mind it Smile

 

Brush

It’s amazing. It’s medium-thick and very handy. I’ve been using this product for years and the brush was always like new right to the end.

Suggested use

1. Brush Vitamin E Nail & Cuticle Oil onto nails and cuticles nightly.

2. Massage in to help increase circulation to the nail bed and stimulate new nail growth.

3. If used before a manicure or pedicure, remove thoroughly with soap and water or nail polish remover before applying nail enamel - reapply after nail enamel is dry.

To be honest, I’m too lazy to do all this. Plus, I don’t usually have much time Smile

The way I use it:

I apply the oil to my cuticle or/and to my nails. That’s it. I can sometimes massage it, but I don’t do it often. Then I necessarily push back my cuticles with a wooden stick.

I normally do it every 7 days and you know, it’s enough to make my nails good-looking.

As you know, the drier your cuticle is, the quicker it grows, thus damaging the whole look of your manicure. If you constantly moisturize it, you won’t have these issues.

If your nails are in pretty poor condition, start moisturizing it at home every week and this problem won’t be a problem for you anymore. Easy-breezy.

The oil doesn’t absorb quickly, which is not surprising. Therefore it may leave some greasy stains, if you are doing it at work or on your deck, for example.

If you are planning to have a manicure after applying this oil, you should necessarily remove everything from your nail bed. By the way, I always use this oil prior to a manicure.

Verdict

I’m really pleased with this product. I purchased it after the cuticle oil pen that ran low and was not available at the store at that moment.

I thought the oil in a bottle won’t be helpful for me, but I was wrong. The packaging is travel-friendly.

Moreover, I’m really pleased with the results. The results are not long in coming provided I use it regularly. All cuticle and nail creams are not even on the same playing field as this treatment. However, I probably didn’t yet come across a good one Smile

Definitely recommended Smile
