Along with the other products I received from Deborah Lippmann for review, Cuticle Lab came along for the ride. Now I have to tell you, as a nail blogger my cuticles take a beating. In fact, as weird as it may sound, my swatch hand (left hand) is in better condition than my Cinderella hand. I am constantly treating my cuticles and nails for photos, and with repeated application and removal of polishes, the potential for destruction is ever-present. I need to really step up my game on my poor right hand. They aren’t horrible, but not as pampered! So I am looking forward to that intensive pampering with the Cuticle Lab. I’ll show you the packaging and give you a description of the amazing contents. Let’s take a look!
I appreciate that most of the packaging is simple and elegant, while not wasting precious resources on the outside box, the real meat is in the products itself.
Here are the details on the items you’ll receive in the set, msrp $45 (a $75 value):
4 easy steps to healthy, beautiful cuticles.
No Soaking • No Peeling • No Nipping
– Hydrating Cuticle Oil (0.27 oz.): an oil that stimulates nail growth when massaged into your cuticle. Before the first application, soften the bristles by rolling the brush between your thumb and forefinger. Dab a small amount to the cuticles and massage.
– Exfoliating Cuticle Treatment (0.27 oz.): a formula that loosens your cuticle skin, making it easier to push back. Apply liberally where skin meets the nails to gently loosen and soften dead or dry cuticles.
– Ultra Nourishing Cuticle Repair Cream (0.33 oz.): a powerful formula that relieves dry cuticles as it repairs for long-lasting comfort. Massage a small amount onto each nail and the surrounding cuticle area. Apply frequently throughout the day to maintain softness and prevent dryness.
– Stainless Steel Dual Ended Cuticle Pusher: a tool to push back your cuticles. Using the arched end, gently push cuticles back toward the knuckle. The opposite tip of the pusher helps target more stubborn cuticle build-up.
Here are a couple of closeup shots of each end of the cuticle pusher. And this pusher is stainless steel, yet brushed finish so it’s easy to hold onto…no slipping, no blood! LOL
• I LOVE the Stainless Steel Cuticle Pusher. I tend to improvise and shuffle between orangewood sticks (they wear down quickly) and a cheap metal pusher that just doesn’t have the chops.
• I don’t nip. Nope, no nipping in my house! So the Exfoliating Cuticle Treatment is the healthy way to rid yourself of those pesky hangnails, dry skin and unwanted cuticle growth.
• The Hydrating Cuticle Oil smells divine for good reason, coconut…yum! And you won’t have that greasy feel.
• The Cure Ultra Nourishing Cuticle Repair Cream is a dreamy concoction of vitamins and other scientific tonics. Your hands take care of you, take care of your hands!
• Oh one more thing! The kit includes a detailed instruction sheet (in 13 languages of course).
