Sally Hansen Salon Manicure Cuticle Eraser + Balm

i'm having issues with my hair, i just can't get it to the bright red i want it to be. i'm thinking maybe some of the medicines i'm on are affecting the chemical process... but i'm just not sure. i did find a cool method using vitamin C to remove dye, though... post on that soon!

today we are checking out Sally Hansen Salon Manicure Cuticle Eraser + Balm. i bought this to replace my Essie Disappearing Trick (cuticle remover)... i wasn't unhappy with the Essie, just wanted to try something new. the Sally Hansen Cuticle Eraser + Balm is interesting because unlike most cuticle removers, it's meant to be rubbed into the skin and left alone... a lot of cuticle removers have to be washed off because they are so strong. balm is a very accurate description of this product, it's very similar to lip balms that come in tins! you just take a little on one finger and rub it into your entire cuticle area, all around the nail. i usually leave that on for about 5-10 minutes, then use an orange stick to push down my extra cuticles... i never cut them unless i have a hangnail! after that, i rub the product in some more, wait a few more minutes, then wash my hands. while you can leave it on, i don't like the greasy feeling it leaves. it does smell fairly strongly of cucumbers, but the scent doesn't bother me.

here's a look at the packaging!





and the product itself... it's so cute with the green and white swirls!




this product does moisturize well and does make your cuticles less noticeable. i do feel it doesn't remove them as well a traditional cuticle remover would, though! 

you can find it most places Sally Hansen products are sold, i bought mine at CVS.

hope your week is going well! Ria :)
