I came up with this post last night as I was looking down at my raggedy, dry, cracked cuticles with horror and disgust. I was planning to put on some nail polish (which is a once in a blue moon treat for me) but my cuticles were in such a bad state I thought against the whole nail polish extravaganza.
I’ve been totally neglecting the cuticle department for some time due to a busy full-time mom schedule. Which really should be no excuse but now is the time to rectify that!
Enter Kiehl’s Imperiale Moisturizing Cuticle Treatment to the rescue! I’m dedicating this post to this unsung hero that has been a lifesaver to me—for the last 5 years. I noticed a tremendous difference in the moisturizing effects of this cream. Nothing I have ever tried does what this can do for your nails.
A thick, rich moisturizing treatment with Avocado Oil and Vitamin oils for overall hand-care maintenance as well as an aid in the relief of dry cuticles.
The first thing you notice is how very thick and concentrated this is and how well it melts away the cuticles hardness and rough spots. A tiny dab on each finger massaged in well into your cuticles will help your cuticles to heal, moisturize and stay that way even through handwashing.
My hands are constantly immersed in water, all day long—from washing dishes to washing up after the kids. The constant hand washing makes my hands especially dry and sensitive, and my cuticles are very fragile and tear easily.
My cuticles and nails look instantly healthy after putting this on. It soaks in immediately and actually hydrates my skin rather than just drying up and leaving me worse off than before like other cuticle creams have done in the past.
Its like rubbing butter into your cuticles and nails and really does a great job of keeping them moisturized. I normally do not get manicures and this cuticle cream keeps my cuticles/nails looking neat and well groomed. I’m an on-and-off nail biter, but when I’m “off” it’s usually thanks to my application of Kiehl’s cuticle cream.
You can try everything on the market and you’ll find nothing that works like this.. at first glance you think “hhhmm that’s pricey.. but it is worth every penny and last a super long time.
