Cuticle creams/ exfoliaters?

Post  SueD on Tue Mar 26, 2013 8:49 am

I've been using an Avon exfoliating cuticle cream for ages,but it's finally run out and they don't make it any more Sad Any recommendations? I'm thinking of trying the Sally Hansen gel cuticle remover as that's about the closest I've seen to what I was using .
Thanks!

I quite like the no 7 one, used my voucher so got it very cheaply.
I don't really get on with avonplex, the opi one- find it too oily.

I use the Avoplex Oil ,but not really when I'm doing a mani (usually use it after my nails are dry and on days when I don't paint them) Smile

I have the Sally Hansen one and it's OK but nothing special.

I recently bought CND Cuticle Eraser and CND CuticleAway from eBay to try so I will report back when I get around to using them. Smile

I've used the CND Cuticle products when I was training with them and thought they were really good. I love their Solar Oil and use it all the time.

I have a Sally Hansen cuticle exfoliator and the two times I have use it I thought it helped. My favorite oil is avoplex and when I remember I use it before bed but I don't always remember :-/ x

The only thing I've ever used on my cuticles is Lush Lemony Flutter, I love it so much that I can't bear to try anything else!

I've tried China glaze orange oil, Occitane shea butter, Bio oil (!) and copius amounts of various handcreams, all both regularly and periodically. My cuticles are still dry as a desert, split and rind like. Ugh! Embarassed

ditto. Mind you the chewing and pulling probably doesn't help!

I've tried the Kiko cuticle scrub pen yesterday and it was brilliant. Only thing have used so far that seems to have made any instant visible difference. I used the Lush lemony flutter last night and I think the difference from last week and this week is massive.

That looks promising Smile There's a couple of Sally Hansen polishes I had my eye on too so that will make it worth ordering Smile

I really fancy that Kiko scrub but don't want to spend £25! Its a ridiculously high minimum Sad
