Beautify your cuticles with GoNails, Ecrinal, Sally Hansen and Witchcraft!

With this cold weather, everything on me is drying out but for some reason my cuticles seem to be getting the worst of it!  Here are some cuticle treatments I have been trying lately:

GoNails Natural Nail Growth Treatment - .5 fl oz - $24.99 + S&H - it's the first dermatologist backed, clinically researched nail and cuticle treatment cream. It works to strengthen and grow nails as well as heal cuticles. I have been using it for about 3 weeks and it does a nice job of moisturizing my cuticles and keeping them from getting ragged.  My only complaint would be the pump container, there is no way of doing half a pump, and a full pump is way more then I need so I end up using the rest as hand cream and I think this stuff is way to expensive to be using it as that! I can't speak to the nail growth aspect of it as I keep my nails short but they have some pretty impressive before and after pictures that you can find here.  There is a 30 day money back guarantee so I guess you really can't go wrong.  You can go to their website for more info or to purchase at http://www.mygobeauty.com/index.php 
Ecrinal Cuticle Softening Gel - 10ml - $13.49 - contains glycerin and AHA and comes with an orange stick - I like that it has the AHA, I find when I use this one I end up cutting my cuticles less (I know I'm not supposed to cut them but I find it strangely satisfying!)
Sally Hansen Problem Cuticle Remover - 28g - $8.99 - contains aloe vera and comes with 2 orange sticks - this one is super thick so does an amazing moisturizing job - I find it works best when I let it sit for about 5 minutes - it lets all the moisture soak in and my cuticles are so soft by then they push in really easily!
Witchcraft Almond Oil - 10ml - $6.99 - if I'm going right to bed and won't be touching anything then this is a good one as I find it leaves an oily residue if I touch anything - well it's oil so that makes sense!

Do you have a favourite cuticle treatment that you think I need to try?

  1. This is a topic close to my heart LOL! Summer or winter, I always have flaky cuticles :-(

    I'm trying not to buy any more hand treatments - as I have a lot stocked up - and to some extent I think frequency of use is more important than the product itselt.

    Saying that - I nearly gave in and purchased this body shop cuticle pen - I love that it is easy to carry around - but the most revolutionary part is the built in cuticle pusher on the cap. As soon as my current hand stash is used up - I'm SO buying this:


  2. Nice one Ella, I'm going to have to have a look at TBS one next time I'm at the mall. My favourite one was made by Quo and was in the pen form but more like a really hard magic marker so you could moisturize and push your cuticles at the same time - of course it's been discontinued!

    Best, Lisamarie

  3. Nice post! I struggle with dry cuticles with my occupation (I have to wash my hands a lot). I like Hakken cuticle oil that I get at Sallys and Burts Bees cuticle cream.

  4. Cuticles..one of my obsessions. I use & love Avoplex cuticle oil by OPI, smells great too!

  5. I cut them off too. Otherwise they're heathenous. Really. That's not a word, but go with it please. lol. Where do you find those nipper things in Canada? I got mine from back home but just in case (God forbid) I lose it...I know where to go? Have a great one! x http://xNTA.blogspot.com/

  6. I absolutely believe that's a real word and if it's not you should contact Websters! I have a few pairs but the ones I like the best are from Tweezerman and Revlon - if anyone else knows of a good brand I am always on the hunt for better ones!

    Best, Lisamarie

  7. Ahh I have this same problem too - no matter how much lotion I slather on, my cuticles are always dry and raggedy in the winter. I'm gonna see if the Sally Hansen one is available next time I'm at the drugstore :)
