This is probably the strangest review I’ve ever done. And I promise this is not another April Fool’s joke!
A couple weeks ago when I was working on my post that included the Forever21 Rose Gold Glitter I was browsing the Forever21 website. Somehow I ran across the Purederm Fingernail Mask. I was immediately intrigued. A fingernail mask? I’d never even heard of such a thing! Being a nail polish junkie obviously good nail care is a requirement. So for $1.90 the Purederm Fingernail Mask went straight into my cart.
When the Purederm Fingernail Mask arrived in my mailbox I learned that Purederm is a Korean skincare brand. I’ve always heard fantastic things about Asian skincare so this seemed like a good sign. I gave the fingernail mask a try that night and the experience was…interesting.
Under the jump you will find my full review!
The packaging of this product is pretty basic and contains 10 fingernail masks (aka an itty bitty mini glove for each finger or a thimble as the packaging calls them). The masks are in different sizes; 2 large, 6 medium, 2 small and have an obvious top and bottom.
The directions are pretty basic. You are supposed to wash and dry your hands then put on the fingernail masks. Wait 30-60 minutes, remove the masks and viola! You have completely a mini spa treatment.
Anyhow. I was really excited to try these so I took off my nail polish and prepared myself for my first ever fingernail mask treatment. My preparations included removing my nail polish and putting on an episode of New Girl.
When I got the nail masks out of the packaging I immediately noticed they had a nice floral sent but they seemed a bit dry. I purposely picked these up because they are supposed to treat dry, brittle nails with a special blend of argan oil and cococut extract. I wore the fingernail masks for a full hour. (And just a warning; it is impossible to do ANYTHING with these on. I sent a SnapChat with my nose).
After a full hour (or 2 episodes of New Girl) I removed the nail masks. I was super skeptical even when I had these on. I just didn’t think there was enough moisture to do anything. But after an hour my nails looked AMAZING!
My nails were nice and moisturized. My cuticles were soft. I seriously couldn’t believe how nice my nails looked.
Yes, I was skeptical but I was pleasantly surprised by the Purederm Fingernail Mask. I don’t think this made a massive difference in my nails but it was a nice treatment and something I would do on occasion to treat myself.
And this is officially the strangest thing I’ve ever reviewed! That is until I review the Purederm Hand Mask I ordered.
