My Cuticle Care

Cuticle Care

Hi guys! I have a bit different post for you today. It is still about nails of course, but you won’t see any actual nails in the post :).

I decided to show you my daily/weekly cuticle care. I use four products to maintain my cuticles in order. Here they are.

 

Essence – Fast Cuticle Remover

Essence - Fast Cuticle Remover

I use this one every other manicure, so this is about once a week. I obviously use it to remove my cuticles. I usually leave it on my fingers for about 10 min (although it says it removes it in 15 seconds – well it doesn’t). In this time the cuticles get properly soaked and I easily remove the dead skin with an orange stick. And I never ever use scissors or clippers to trim my cuticles.

The brush makes it easy to apply and you always get enough of it on the brush to cover the cuticle of one nail.

You can see the consistency of this remover is gel like, so it stays on cuticles and it doesn’t run off. And it also doesn’t dry in 10 min, so it is still fresh when I start to remove the dead skin.

I have been using this remover ever since I started blogging and I am going to continue to use it, because it is great and it is available in our drug stores (Muller).

 

Lush – Lemony Flutter

Lush - Lemony Flutter

Who hasn’t heard about this one?  Well, I have and that is the reason why I bought it. It is great for your skin, it moisturises skin perfectly, but the scent. Oh my, I really don’t like the smell.

It comes in this cute black pot and it has a cream like consistency that melts once it is applied on warm hands. It takes quite some time to absorb in to the skin, so I mostly use it in the evening before I go to bed. And after it is absorbed it leaves some sort of film/protective layer on my skin which doesn’t wash away with water, so that is great.

But the scent, well, it smells like an artificial lemon, or like a glue that my husband uses, so I really don’t like that. I wish they would change it, but I don’t think that will happen.

 

Essie – Apricot Cuticle Oil

Essie - Apricot Cuticle Oil

This product is my go to cuticle care product. I use it every day, multiple times a day (if I remember to use it). It smells deliciously, it has an oily consistency, but it absorbs fairly quick and it nourishes my cuticles, so that they aren’t dry.

The application is easy due to the brush (I think it has the same brush as the polishes). That’s all I have to say about this one. I noticed when the products are perfect there is really little to say about them.

 

O.P.I – Avoplex – Nail & Cuticle Replenishing Oil

O.P.I - Avoplex - Nail & Cuticle Replenishing Oil

As you can see I have already used this one up. I only bought this bottle and I don’t think I will repurchase it, because it is so expensive (25€ is just too much). I get the same result if not even better from Essie’s Apricot Cuticle Oil, which is only 10€.

O.P.I - Avoplex - Nail & Cuticle Replenishing Oil

It smells delicious and it gets it’s job done, but the pricing is just too steep for me.

So these are the products that I use. What is your cuticle routine and care?

Thanks for reading and you will get my nails next time :).

    Torej s tem Essence izdelkom zmehčaš kožico, kot bi jo npr s kopeljo, da jo potem lažje potisneš nazaj? Sliši se zanimivo.:) Jaz sem vedno tako radovedna glede nege nohtov, ker sem sama katastrofalna pri tem. In potem bi rada en izdelek, ki naredi vse. Moram priznati, da tudi vedno pozabim na moje roke in ne maram preveč teh mastnih zadev, sploh čez dan. Zdaj sem v upanju, da se bom kaj izboljšala, kupila Burt's Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream, pa še na to prevečkrat pozabim.

    Tvoji nohti izgledajo res v dobrem stanju 🙂

    Tako je, zmehčam kožico, ob tem pa se odmrla razgradi oz. ko "podrgnem" s to palčko, gre odmrla koža kar stran. Potiskam jaz kožice ne nikamor, ker je čisto majhna in mi niti ne zraste več. Pač ob obnohtni kožici in po njej narahlo, res narahlo podrgnem s to palčko (toliko sile, da ne boli) in to je to 🙂 Najlažje bi opisala takole, da zgleda kot bi očistila kožico nečistoč (pač odmrle kože). Glede nege rok je pa pri meni ravno obratno. Včasih imam tak grozen občutek zategovanja kože (suha koža), da si moram nujno namazati, če ne se mi kar meša :D.

    In hvala za pohvalo <3

    Dva izdelka sta v moji rutini ista, Essence, ki ga pustim očitno premalo, ker včasih dam še drug nanos in se morem kar nekaj časa obadati s kožico, je pa res da nisem tako pridna kot ti in ta postopek izvajam mogoče 1x na mesec 🙂
    Pa Lush Lemony flutter je amazing ;). Bi si pa po tejle objavi želela preizkusit še Essie oljček 🙂

    Ja, če to delaš bolj redko, potem kožica zraste in jo je težje odstranit. Jaz res probam biti dosledna, ker me je tudi tale kožica zelo matrala, ko sem si še grizla nohte in sem velikokrat imela odtrgano 🙁 in potem to peče, da ne govorim kako grdo je 🙁 Tako da res zaradi teh mojih izkušenj od prej, sem zdej ful pridna in to redno odstranjujem 🙂 Ja tale Lemony Flutter je pa res super, samo vonj 🙁 me čisto preveč moti, ampak zdej pozimi bom poskusla pregurat z vonjem, ker na makro slikah se zelo hitro vidi, če ni vse tipi topi 🙂
