Superdrug - Conditioning Cuticle Oil pen

When a magazine like 'Vogue' quotes that a product has had this effect; 'The strongest nails we've ever had - by a long way'. It stops me in my tracks, I sit up in my seat and I pay attention. I love painting my nails, but the down side is that it leaves them thin, soft and they peel. I have tried so many lotions and potions and nothing seems to work, but could this be the answer to my hopes and dreams?


After reading the quote from this Vogue article online, I of course had to skim read to the bottom of the page to see the price. This tends to be the heart stopping moment, when the eyes have seen, the funny fluttery feeling starts in your tummy, you heart has fallen in love but your brain is pulling on the reins to prepare for the price and letting all the over excited elements in my body down. This has happened so many times, a dress in a magazine of on someones blog, you love it, it looks great, the colour is perfect - the list goes on and on and on, only to see the price. Oh, yes of course I have a small deposit for a house in my bank to spend on a dress. The dream comes to a crashing halt (even though I know exactly where I am going to wear it and planned the shoes and bags to go with it) stops there, I think you see where I am going with this.


£2.99!! The product that Vogue are quoted on saying that it gives them 'The strongest nails we've ever had - by a long way', is only £2.99. The Superdrug - Conditioning cuticle oil pen with vitamin E is a bargin, I don't even have to tell Chris (sheepishly) that I have bought it, a big woop woop in my book.



Once the cap, which doubles up as a cuticle push back hoof is removed, the barrel of the pen is squeezed to apply the oil to your cuticles with the brush applicator, massage the oil into your nail bed and use the 'hoof', if you wish to.


I have to comment of the smell of this product, it smells like the most amazing sweet from the 1980's, the ones filled with E numbers and artificial flavours, colours and preservatives (showing my age...), which of course this product is not filled with. I can't wait to have the strongest nails now.

*I bought this product with my own money and this is not a sponsored post.
