Indigo Bananas Cuticle Balm

I hope you all had a great holiday!  I've been busy with family stuff, trying to learn how to use my new camera (it may be a while before you guys see photos taken with it...photography does not come easily to me!), and some time in the emergency room (apparently, there's something wrong with a muscle in my jaw...yeah, ouch).  Oh, and I need to learn how to use Instagram, too, because I finally got a new iPod Touch!

Like many folks across the US, I've also been trying to cope with tons of snow, freezing temperatures, and sad, dry hands and cuticles.  I'm sure many of you share my pain in this area, so today, I'll be showing you my favorite daytime cuticle balm from Indigo Bananas!



Why did I call this a "daytime balm," you ask?  This balm is non-greasy and has a powdery feel after it sinks in, so you can go about your daily business without greasing up everything you touch!  It's smooth,  moisturizes nicely, and the scents aren't overbearing.

Ingredients (subject to change and varies based on scent, always read the listing before buying!): Avocado oil, mango butter, shea butter, cocoa butter, beeswax, caprylic/capric/stearic glycerides (palm oil derived), jojoba oil, lanolin, isopropyl myristate, meadowfoam seed oil, vitamin E, scent (essential oil or fragrance - see specific scent for more info)

Indigo Bananas Cuticle balm costs $8 for 20mL, $5 for 10mL, or $18 for a winter mini set and can be purchased from the brand's Etsy store. Be sure to Like the brand's Facebook page for the latest Indigo Bananas news!

  1. I need to add this to the other Indigo Bananas in my Etsy cart and pull that trigger, they look like beautiful polishes....and can't have too much in the way of cuticle treatments, right? :D

    1. It's probably on vacation with my container of IB balm, which has also mysteriously disappeared! I lose everything traveling back and forth to see my fiance :-(

  3. I've been looking for something not too greasy -- I'm using Burt's Bees cuticle cream right now and it's great, but I leave grease prints all over the place (darn it, no murdering people in greenhouses for me). Definitely going to give this a try! Thanks for a great review!
