For Your Nails Only Cuticle Balm- Test and Review
Hello my lovely readers! I hope you have all had a great week I lost a filling yesterday so had an emergency trip to the dentist, it wasn't as bad as I had imagined so that was a huge plus. As you may or may not know I am always having a lot of trouble keeping my cuticles moist and in good condition due to all the medication I am on for my various chronic illnesses. So a few weeks ago when the lovely Sharon from For Your Nails Only was asking for some people to try out her new organic cuticle balm I jumped at the chance. Today's post is going to be a quick review of how I got on with the product, so lets jump right into it.
When I first received the cuticle balm I did a patch test as was suggested by Sharon just to make sure I wasn't allergic to any of the ingredients she had used. As I said this is a organic cuticle balm so all of the ingredients used are 100% organic and natural. The ingredients Sharon put into this cuticle balm are:
- Pure Natural Refined Beeswax
- Raw Unrefined Organic 100% pure and natural Shea Butter
- 100% pure coconut oil
- Pure natural Vitamin E
- Pure & Natural Lavender
When I opened my pot of balm the first thing I noticed was that the texture was a lot like the Burt's Bees cuticle butter. The picture above is after I have been using it for the last two weeks, as you can see there is plenty left and a little definitely goes a long way. Once it was opened I could smell the lovely scent of lavender and a slight hint of honey. The beeswax in here definitely tones down that lavender smell so it is not overpowering.
To apply the balm I picked up a small bit on one of my fingers and proceeded to rub this into my cuticles on the other hand. When it first goes on it feels very much like the Burt's Bees cuticle butter, once rubbed into the cuticle it leaves them moisturised and soft. There is no greasy residue left behind and it soaks into the skin within a few minutes so it can be used on the go. My cuticles have never looked better since I have been using this in the morning and just before I go to bed. The only issue I would have is that the pot could be a little bit wider as I do find that when I am trying to get some onto my finger it can sometimes get underneath the tip of my nail.
Overall I am highly impressed with this product, it has done my cuticles the world of good. I am really happy to announce that Sharon has brought more supplies and will hopefully begin selling this balm through her social media platforms. For Your Nails Only is a blog on Facebook, she does gorgeous manicures and great reviews She is also on Instagram and Twitter I will leave all the links to Sharon's social media below. Be sure to check out her pages and keep a close eye out for this amazing cuticle balm going on sale soon.
As always I hope you have enjoyed this post and are all having a fabulous nail day, hope to see all you lovely people in the next post.
