The Body Shop Almond Oil Cuticle Pen
This is the best cuticle AND nail treatment that I have ever used. I've always got dry hands and brittle nails with the dry skin around them to boot. But after using this treatment on a daily basis, my cuticles (and nails) have never looked better! The fact that it’s a slim pen with a brush applicator is even better – I take it with me wherever I go, and even have an extra one at home that I used as a night time conditioning treatment for my nails before bed. The fragrance is a mixture of almond and orange (and disappears fairly quickly) and the texture is a clear medium weight gel (not actually liquid oil as the name might imply). I simply clicked the bottom of the pen a few times and applied around each nail bed and then directly on the nail itself. At times I let it sit for a few minutes for extra absorption and then massaged the remainder into my nails and cuticles. I have never been happier with a nail treatment! I also loved that the pen has a cuticle pusher attached to the top of it so all I had to apply the clear treatment gel, and then I could take off the top the pen and quickly push my cuticles back, or use it to massage the gel in further – perfection! The really keeps my cuticles so moisturized – I noticed a dramatic decrease in hang nails too! This is perfect for travel as well!
