“ Brand: Sally Hansen / Texture: Cream / Type: Nail Cream / Suitable for: Cuticles „
I am not the biggest fan of nail care and although I do love painting my nails I do think I could take better care of my hands. I came across this Sally Hansen Get Healthy Nails & Cuticles cream and thought it looked like quite a good product for me especially as my hands were a bit dry and also cuticles can get damaged. Sally Hansen products are usually quite trustworthy when it comes to nail care and I hoped it would be quite quick at working so I thought I'd give it a trial run and see if it was worth keeping up with.
This product comes in an orange box with the Sally Hansen logo on it. It is all metallic and then you pull out the small tub and there is an orange pot which is made of frosted glass and then it has a white lid on it with gold writing. It is a circular shaped tub and is quite unusual and comes in a 13g size which is enough to really give it a good try. The pot is very distinct and it is a nice compact size to either carry about with you or so it doesn't take up a lot of room when sitting on your dressing table.
This product contain vitamins and protein to strengthen nails and hydrate cuticles. It has Aloe for moisturising, it is to restore flexibility to nails and helps daily nail wear and tear to make nails look a lot healthier. When opening the pot you just need to take the lid off and then the cream is a light orange colour almost like a pale peach colour and it smells to me a lot like apricot which may explain why the look of packaging is all so orange.
The cream is very easy to apply and is quite greasy but you just rub it on the top of your nails around the nail bed and cuticles. Skin seems to absorb it quite quickly and it does seem to be quite oily but it does make nails look shiny when applied. I do think you need to really rub this into nails to make sure it really is absorbed and you do not need to apply to much to the nail at all, just a dip of your finger into the pot and you should have enough to make you nail look good.
When applying this don't expect instant results as I have used it for a couple of months now. What I have found from using this is that it does give nails a very healthy shine and makes them look good and my cuticles are probably a lot more moisturised and less dry but the results are not as amazing as I'd hoped. The cream does smell really nice and it definitely conditions nails and cuticles but whether it strengthens nails I'm not sure if it does that exactly.
This cream is good if you want to keep your nails quite moisturised and shiny looking but if you want it to completely make cuticles look good then it might not be the best option. The cream is also quite greasy which is a bit annoying also. It all depends on the condition of your nails in the first place with this I feel as to whether you need something more intense or not.
If you do want to buy this you can buy it from Amazon for £4.22 which is not a bad price for the 13g pot. You can also buy this really cheap on eBay if you take a look and see what bargains there are. It can be bought in stores too you just need to look as I am sure I picked this up cheap at somewhere like Poundland but I can't remember exactly.
