Sally Hansen Cuticle Remover Review


I have to admit, while I have always loved polishing my nails, I can't honestly say I've taken care of them. Not that I abuse them or anything, I actually have mild eczema so I've always been pretty good with skincare - but I haven't particularly had a routine for nail care. I would say my biggest issue is cuticle care. Honestly, my cuticles have not been a pretty sight. You can probably tell from pictures I've posted up to a week or two ago. 

I purchased Sally Hansen's Cuticle Remover from Target for $4.99 plus tax. I needed something that would be wallet friendly and still work. 

I wanted to give this a good trial before I made judgments about it, so here's how my experience has been. 
The idea is that you squeeze this gel onto your cuticles, let it sit for a short while (the box says 15 seconds, I gave it 30 seconds) and then scrape off the dead skin with an orange stick. My first experience was a good one - using this did get off a good amount of the excess cuticle - but it wasn't all gone. I was using a soft cuticle pusher that is on the end of my The Body Shop Almond Oil Cuticle Treatment which isn't nearly as solid as a regular old orange stick, so I decided to wait a week and give it another go.

The second time I used it a week later, mostly dry skin came off the sides, but my cuticle is still a little bit not right. However, I used the same "stick", so I honestly think before I try again I'm going to pick up some real orange sticks and that will enable me to really get my cuticles to go away!
Also, note that a little goes a long way, so this bottle will last me a long time.

I encourage you to give it a try, and thanks for reading!

I've been looking for a fairly cheap cuticle remover, and I think this is it! Definitely going to try this out, as my cuticles aren't doing so well either :\
