Nail cuticles are strange things aren't they? Like the rest of my skin, mine are on the dry side and get even drier when the weather is cold or I'm subjected to too much central heating. I use various cuticle balms and salves when I can remember too, but I was looking for something that would just help to remove them when I wanted my nails to look nice and tidy.
I saw Andy's review of Leighton Denny's Remove & Rectify Cuticle Remover a while ago, and I was so impressed with his before and after photos of this product, that I knew I had to try it out myself. I've been using Remove & Rectify for about three weeks and I'm definitely pleased with it.
Remove & Rectify looks like your typical Leighton Denny nail polish which makes storing it easy. It has a little pump that dispenses a small amount at a time and has a pleasant fruity fragrance due to the Grape, Passion Fruit and Pineapple extracts in it. Instead of harsh chemicals, it uses these and Milk AHAs to dissolve away the dry skin around the cuticles. Super easy to use, you just rub it into the cuticles, leave for a few minutes to do it's thing, and then you can use a hoof/orange stick to push back the cuticle neatly and clean up around it for a polished look.
It's £11 which might sound pricey compared to some of the cheaper drugstore cuticle removers you can get, but this feels a lot nicer than the cheaper ones I've tried, smells much better and moisturises a lot better too. Whichever way you look at it, you only use a teeny amount each time, so it'll definitely last a while.
Have you tried this? Do you use cuticle removers?
