Though we should be caring for our cuticles all year long, it is during the chilly winter months when cuticles look their worst and high-level moisturization is needed.
Here is a sampling of some of my cuticle oil picks for winter—oils that pack a big hydration punch but also take clients on a sensorial journey with their fragrances.
1. Cutie Oil Olivine
Described as sweet vanilla and warm amber with a hint of sandalwood and blackberry, just the description of the aroma is enough to make you go out and pick up Cutie Oil’s Olivine scent, but the oil in reality is so much more. Meadowfoam, macadamia, jojoba and coconut oils are combined to deliver the ultimate in moisture.
2. Nail Cocktail Lemon Drop
If you or your clients love lemons, this cuticle oil is for you. It combines the fresh, citrus scent with a hint of sugar to deliver a cuticle oil everyone is sure to love.
3. Biosculpture Ethos Almond Oil
Almond extract makes this cuticle oil perfect to rehydrate dry cuticles and surrounding skin. Suitable for all nail types. Almond, avocado, jojoba and vitamin E oils bring extra moisture to the skin and keep cuticles supple.
4. CND Solar Oil
This cuticle oil is an award winner for a reason. This year’s #1 cuticle oil in the Readers’ Choice Awards, SolarOil is known to hydrate the cuticle area effectively with jojoba and vitamin E.
5. Cuccio Botanicals Eucalyptus and Montana Flower
I’ve always been a Milk + Honey girl when it comes to Cuccio’s cuticle oils; that was until I smelled this. If you are a fan of eucalyptus and in the market for a fresh, earthy cuticle oil, this will be your new bestie.
6. Natural Beyond Concepts (NBC) Orange Cuticle Oil
This cuticle oil is as moisturizing as it is beautiful to look at. What you see is real flowers in the jar, but what you will feel is jojoba, vitamin B and vitamin E moisturizing in this 99% natural vegetable oil. The oil can also be used for hand and foot massage.
