Cuticle Cure | A guide to soft cuticles

I will admit that my cuticles have been in a terrible state recently because I have really been neglecting them. I decided I needed to take a little more care, and nurse them back to health! I bought a couple of products from the Sally Hansen range, a vitamin E cuticle oil and the Cuticle Rehab. I have been using them every day for a few weeks now and I am slowly noticing the difference.

I'm not sure if it's because my cuticles were in such poor condition that its taken so long for them to start recovering or if the products just aren't as potent as I had hoped for.

I have been slopping on copious amounts of the vitamin e oil when I'm at home and I keep the cuticle rehab in my bag and use it at work.

Cuticle oil is always great to have for nail posts as using it before taking photos makes your cuticles and fingers look healthy, so for that reason I like having it around. I haven't noticed that it was really worth it's £6 price tag and I'm sure a cheaper one would have done the same job.

The cuticle rehab comes in a handy little tube with a brush applicator which makes it great for when you're on the go, I love having it in my handbag and find it really handy. It's a thick gel like consistency so it doesn't drip all over the place when trying to apply it, and it smells beautifully of cucumber and melon. Out of the 2 products this one is my preference by far.

I've been trying really hard to get into good habits with looking after my nails and cuticles, I will admit there have been a few days where I have fallen off the waggon and forgotten to put anything onto my cuticles and I have noticed the difference very quickly. My cuticles dry out so fast so I now know I need to try harder at remembering and getting into a good habit with it.

The vitamin E oil sinks in relatively quickly and I will admit I apply a hell of a lot at a time, there's nothing worse than greasy fingers.

So far the progress is good, I just need to keep up my end of the bargain, and remember to keep applying them!
