Hey everyone! I've got something a little different for you all today: Pretty & Polished's Almond Biscotti Cuticle Oil!
Ingredients: Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Limnathes Alba (Meadowfoam) Seed Oil, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Citrus Aurantium Bergamia (Bergamot) Fruit Oil, Fragrance
What I liked:
This is probably the best cuticle oil I've ever tried! It feels very nourishing and it makes my cuticles and nails feel healthy and moisturized. While it is obviously an oily substance, it absorbs quite well, so it doesn't feel gross. If you accidentally use too much (a little goes a long way, and it can be easy to overdo it) , just blot off the excess with a towel. As far as the scent goes, it does indeed smell like biscotti. If I apply it before bed, I wake up to discover that it smells as if I'd been baking in my room! In the future, I'd really like to try one of the other scents offered (Fruit Punch and Tropical Souffle).
What I didn't like:
I'm not a fan of the packaging and would prefer that it come in a polish bottle instead. It's easy to dispense too much with the eye dropper, and dipping a long, thin piece of glass into an open, tall, glass vial full of oil is sort of a tricky proposition. I'm always kind of afraid that I'm going to spill it. I would also prefer plastic labels, since the paper labels absorb oil if you handle the bottle with oily fingertips.
The bottom line:
I love the product, but I dislike the packaging. Fortunately for Pretty & Polished, the oil itself is so nice that I would still buy it despite my isseus with the packaging.
