Nail oils are easy to find, and there are many on the market that are less expensive than Nail Inc's Avocado Oil Slick Pen. But I wanted to buy something to cure my husband's ragged cuticles so that he would stop pulling at them, and this product was perfect for the job.
The packaging is small and sleek, in the form of a pen-sized tube with a built-in brush at one end with a removable cap and a twistable bit at the other end that controls the amount of oil that is dispensed. Each pen/tube contains 1.6 mL of oil. Simply remove the cap, twist the other end a few times, and brush a light coating of oil around the cuticles, then massage lightly.
The oil itself is relatively light and disappears after a few minutes' rubbing. Again, this is perfect for my husband, who is a little sensitive about having his nails manicured. After a couple of weeks of regular use, hubby's cuticles looked healthy with no sign of hangnails or stray bits. His nail-biting habit is improving, as well, which makes this product a success in my book!
