Beauty : The importance of Cuticle Oil.

Monday, 5 May 2014


There's one final step I think a lot of people forget about when completing an at home manicure, and that is using a cuticle oil. I admit I never used to use it, however with my nails recently having a bit of a growth spurt and they seem in pretty good condition, I figured it must be because I had added this simple product into my manicure and nightly routine. 

Cuticle oil is exactly what it says on the tin.... an oil, for Cuticles! By using an oil on a regular basis, you soften and hydrate the cuticle. We all know that a manicure looks a  million times better if everything is preened including those pesky cuticles that don't look very nice if you don't care for them properly

I've been using the Boots Salon Nail care Nail and Cuticle oil for a few weeks now, applying it every evening and after a fresh paint job. I've seen a dramatic improvement in the appearance and how they feel, I can't imagine not including it in my routine anymore! There are various methods to apply cuticle oil, some come in pen form so you can be very precise with your application. Other's look like a nail varnish and you just apply with a brush. This one from boots is a rollerball. Making it very easy to control the amount of product on each finger. As it is a oil a little goes a long way, I can see this tiny tube lasting me a while! You don't have to go out and buy a specific cuticle oil though, something like coconut oil which will also do the job! A pot of that would last you ages!

Do you use a cuticle oil to keep them in check?

Much love,
