I take care of my nails on a weekly basis, and usually on Friday night because I can stay up a bit later than usual. Sometimes I skip a week, like this past weekend because I had a sinus cold. But I never go more than two weeks without doing some nail care.
The very first thing I do when doing my nail care routine is to push back my cuticles. And I’ll be honest with you, I rarely use a cuticle softener. I know, I know, it’s BAD, and my nails are full of grooves because I use too much pressure. I do have some Blue Cross Cuticle Remover, but it’s a huge bottle and just a hassle to use. I’ve been meaning to pour it into a smaller bottle, but I’m a very bad procrastinator at times.
Enter the Born Pretty Cuticle Softener Pen ($4.59 USD), the answer to my problem! Give it to me in a format I can easily use right away and I WILL use it!
I would usually list the ingredients for the product, but I can’t find them anywhere. They’re not listed on the packaging nor on the product page. All I could find was this info on Amazon: This unique natural cuticle oil contains vitamins to nourish moisturize and protect the cuticles and nail. I’ll be honest, I don’t like not knowing what’s in my products. But I still use this one.
The instructions are quite simple:
- Apply cuticle softener and wait for 1-2 mins
- Push the dead skin softly with cuticle pusher
- Remove the dead skin with cuticle clipper
- Apply cuticle oil
The Cuticle Softener Pen is really easy to use and works well; it does help soften the cuticles and makes pushing them back easier.
This product has a VERY faint scent that is pleasant, but I only smell it if I put the product up to my nose.
My only complaint about this product is that I can’t find an ingredients list, but otherwise I really like it. I will definitely keep using it during my nail care routine.
Don’t forget to use my discount code AOBQ10 when shopping on BornPrettyStore.
