So if you've seen my nails lately, you'll know that they've grown out super long and most everyone asks how I manage to do it. The thing with growing out your nails is that long healthy nails are due in part from good upkeep and moisturization. Happy nails are hydrated nails and I've got a good rotation of products I use. Along with my DIY Cuticle Oil and cuticle balm (from Sunny's Body Products), I have added Nail Butter to my routine.
Where to Purchase: Nail Butter. Here are links to see their US Retailers and International Retailers
Price: $24.00 for 1oz of product. If you order 1-2 jars, they ship for free so the cost of the shipping is included in the price!
Do they test on animals?: The company does not.
Packaging: The nail butter comes in a frosted glass jar with a black polka dot plastic jar. It's actually quite a hefty jar, it's not cheap packaging at all. However given the weight, I wouldn't keep this in my purse for on the go use.
Nail Butter comes in two scents, Gardenia and Lemongrass. I received the Nail Butter in Lemongrass. The Nail Butter has a super creamy texture, like a thick lotion. Keep in mind that the product is lanolin based which is derived from sheep's wool so it's not vegan. Given that the weather has been warm lately, the nail butter came to me slightly melted. However, once I stirred it up and put it in the freezer for 10-15 minutes it was totally fine.
I was worried that the nail butter would be super oily but it actually absorbs incredibly well while moisturizing my nails and cuticles. My cuticles feel soft after using it. The directions suggest using this twice a day and I actually think it would work great if you used this at night and paired it with cotton gloves.
While I do like the product, the only con is that the scent of the product is quite strong. They're currently in the process of having an unscented nail butter but in the meantime, I highly suggest leaving the jar unopened overnight and stirring it to help dissipate the scent. This helped to get rid of some of the scent for me.
If you're in the market for a super moisturizing cuticle product, this would be right up your alley. If cuticle oils are too greasy and oily but you want some TLC for your cuticles, this is a great alternative. If you're sensitive to fragrances, I would skip this until they come out with the unscented version.
Rating: A- (I docked off points for the strong scent)
Would you try out the Nail Butter? What are you using for your nails/cuticles?
