The colder months are never very kind to my nails, and we’re heading straight into hand nail and ouchy torn cuticle season. This year I’ve decided my fingers (and toes) deserved a little bit of TLC so when I received the press release for the Manicare Cuticle Therapy and Cuticle Remover I thought it would be a great thing to test drive.
I’ve been diligently using the Manicare Cuticle Therapy (which is basically a cuticle oil) twice a day for the past few weeks. It’s fast absorbing, and once massaged into the nail area my cuticles has the immediate effect of giving me ‘nail blogger cuticles‘. I like that.
The Cuticle Remover I’ve been using mostly for my pedicures- my toe cuticles are really hard to push back and this helps soften them (there’s really no elegant way of phrasing that is there?). From what I’ve read, the active ingredient in this product is sodium hydroxide which breaks down dead skin- I assume that different cuticle remover products will have different concentrations of NaOH and therefore different efficacies. The Manicare Cuticle Remover is on the milder side and softens cuticles rather than dissolving or ‘removing’.
Keep reading after the jump!
