ESSIE TREATMENT - APRICOT CUTICLE OIL 6030
I bought it in July. I get frequent hangnails and peeling cuticles. It worked okay when it was warm. It never really nourished my cuticles. I felt as if it just softened temporarily then my skin was dry again. I also used it on my nails after taking off nail polish. It's now in the 50s and below In NY and the skin around my nails are peeling like crazy despite using the oil at least 3 times a day, thick hand cream multiple times a day and using gloves for all cleaning jobs. I've even changed my hand soap to a very moisturizing formula. I'm a Nurse so I wash my hand frequently and peeling skin around my nails makes it very uncomfortable while working. I tossed the oil and filled the bottle with equal parts Jojoba oil and Vitamin E oil. I'm much happier with the results from that mixture. I would not repurchase.
This product smells great but I haven't noticed a dramatic change in my cuticles since buying it but I will repurchase when I run out
This stuff is just ok. It seems to get the job done, but it's not my new favorite thing.I think I will probably use this at night before bed and keep using Solar Oil(my favorite) during the day, since this stuff seems to tinge my cuticles slightly orange. Nothing drastic, but still not a good look.The smell to me is shampoo-ish.
This is the only cuticle oil I've used, so I can't compare it to others. I've been using it for a few weeks, and my cuticles always look nice and hydrated after the oil has absorbed, but as for long-term effects, I don't think it's improved anything. Smells pleasant though, so there's that.Edit: Yeah, don't waste your money on this. It hasn't changed my cuticles' condition long-term whatsoever. I'm thinking of chucking my bottle because I have a better cuticle cream lined up (also, this experience has taught me that cuticle cream > oil maybe?)
This oil makes a real difference on my manicure regime. The first time I used it my friend (who is very exigent on such matters) thought I had gone to the salon. That had never happened before. Even my grandma remarked my hands looked better, and she doesn't even see very well!
