Bye-bye Cuticles

We all know it, the embarrassment when someone compliments you on your beautiful nail color, and then you feel their eyes burning on your dry, and not-so-attractive cuticles. Yep. Used to happen to me very frequently, until I bumped up into this amazing duo.

I’m talking about Sally Hansen Instant Cuticle Remover and Burt’s Bees Cuticle Cream, they literally changed my life. Before this, the only thing I’d do to “take care” of my cuticles was applying the Herome miracle pen once in a while (with that I mean once a month or so).

Now I apply the Sally Hansen cuticle remover once, or sometimes twice a week to get rid of the cuticle part that’s there all dried up and being ugly. It’s very easy to use. You just apply a generous amount of the product on your cuticles. I just finish the rest of my fingers, and then then gently push back the cuticles. Rinse it off with lukewarm “soapy” water, and done. I wait a minute or so, and then rub the Burt’s Bees cuticle cream over the cuticles. It’s a very nourishing cream that isn’t sticky and I love the smell. I’m a great citrus fragrant lover, thus this citronella/lemongrass scent is a great plus in my opinion.

I often just rub the cuticle cream in whenever I are that my cuticles are getting a bit dry, or just when I’m watching a series, then I just rub it in and do nothing ;-).

This little combination basically is my once or twice a week home-mani now. Doesn’t take more than 5-10 minutes. Easy, breezy, beautiful. Yep I just felt the need to quote Covergirl. No comment.
