Review of Sephora nourishing cuticle oil - pen by Valentyne
Click continued for pic. This cuticle oil comes in pen form, with an applicator brush (think Stila Lip Glaze) at one end and a twisting top that releases product at the other, it's roughly the length of a ballpoint pen. It comes in three formulations: Original, Healing Eucalyptus, and Stimulating Lavender. I've tried and love all three, but my favorites are Original and Healing Eucalyptus.
Original: Lightly scented (sort of hard to describe but very natural and fades anyway), very moisturizing, comes in a peach pen.
Healing Eucalyptus: Lightly scented with a "green" eucalyptus/tea tree oil scent, also very moisturizing, and soothing to irritated or dry cuticles, comes in a green pen.
Stimulating Lavender: Lavender scented, moisturizing, and I guess supposedly stimulates cuticles and/or nails to grow? I'm not really sure why it's stimulating, tbh, and I've never really noticed any growth or tingling w/ this which is why it's my least favorite. It also has a stronger scent, imo. This one comes in a lavender pen.
Pros: Non greasy and absorbs quickly, cuticles are moisturized w/ fewer ragged edges or "hangnails" within 1-2 days, very convenient and cute packaging, and three great formulas.
Cons: At $12, it's a little on the pricey side, but totally worth it. I've used the healing eucalyptus daily since October for my dry winter cuticles, and I'm still going strong, so I think you do get a good amount of product for the price.
