This is a product I had no intention of trying. But then I was browsing the cuticle care section of drugstore.com. The claims caught my eye. An intensive conditioning cream for rough, ragged cuticles and hangnails that absorbs quickly? Sign me up!
I adore my holy grail cuticle product, Smith’s Rosebud Salve. But it’s a salve therefore takes a bit of work to get it absorbed into the skin.
There are many things I like about the Sally Hansen Cuticle Massage Cream. It has a light, sweet scent that is pleasant. The cream is the consistency of a lip balm therefore the product is thin and soaks into the skin quickly. The price is right at under $5. The packaging is nice and sturdy.
Unfortunately all of these good things get lost in the fact that I just don’t think this product does much for my cuticles. This is definitely a maintenance product at best. If you’re looking for something really moisturizing and help repair dry cuticles this is not the right product. At best, this cuticle cream will help to maintain cuticles that are already in good shape.
Overall, I don’t hate this product. I’ll definitely use it for a quick cuticle care product to help maintain my cuticle health. And I think for some people a product like this can be great to keep at your desk or in your purse or car. But this won’t be a product I repurchase.
Below the jump you will find pictures of the product as well as the packaging, etc.
I adore my Smith’s Rosebud Salve but I’m always trying new cuticle products! If you have a favorite definitely leave it in a comment 🙂
