Last Monday, I posted about the @kissproducts acrylic nails I had just applied (https://katiesilsethblogs.com/index.php/2022/05/09/mani-monday-kiss-beauty-products-salon-acrylic-french-nail-kit-in-je-taime/) and the main reason I had done so them was because I was heading to Playa del Carmen in Mexico! I am happy to report, in the past seven (7) days, only one came off and was easily reapplied with a little nail glue that a friend of mine had on them at the time (I had brought mine with, I just had forgotten to put it in my purse – rookie mistake!). Since reapplying that one (1) nail on Friday, I have had no other issues. What I am posting about today, however, is the @sally_hansen Cuticle Rehab Oil Balm ($9.99 for .21 ounces – https://rstyle.me/+XMPoVfi9wtK73A5Z6uPgiw) that I brought with me on the trip. When I saw it on @ultabeauty’s website, I thought it would be a great travel nail kit addition as it would pack easily and not be considered a liquid.
What it claims:
🔘 Multi-purpose solid oil for cuticle care on the go
🔘 Infused with Aloe, Safflower Oil and Vitamin E Oil, which promote healthy skin and nails
🔘 Nourishes and moisturizes cuticles and nails in an instant
🔘 Gently smooth over nails, cuticle and other dry areas – massage into skin and nails
🔘 Can be used over nail color or on bare nails
This product did, in fact, travel well. No matter how hot it was outside, it didn’t lose its shape while in my purse. I also really enjoy the applicator. It made putting it on my cuticles very easy. Unfortunately, I don’t find it to be as hydrating or long-lasting as I expect my cuticle hydrators to be. It does sink into the skin quickly, though, so if you’re looking for something portable, lightweight, and easy-to-use, look no further. However, if you want something deeply hydrating and maybe a little greasy even (🙋🏼♀️), this may not be ideal for you. I’ll use it up, but won’t repurchase.
