Review: Mavala Cuticle Cream


When I say I've tried everything for my dry cuticles... I mean everything! Bio Oil, Nuxe's Multi-Usage Dry Oil that I received in my Birchbox, Burt Bee's Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream, Sally Hansen's Massage Cuticle Oil Pen, Sephora's Cuticle Care Pen, argan oil. NOTHING WORKED!


I bought Mavala's Cuticle Cream on a whim when I was buying my nail bling on Folica.com. It claims to soften and beautify cuticles. It contains: lanolin, petrolatum, mineral oil, phenoxyethanol, chlorphenesin, limonene, linalool, butyphenyl methylpropional, citronellol, geraniol, and citral. Why I don't know what half that stuff is... it is a concoction that works!

Pros: 
- Good thickness, not thin like oils
- Provide a little stick to push back your cuticles after you soften them
- Decent amount for the price (.05 oz)

Cons:
- It is $11 (which is in the same price range as the Bio Oil, Sally Hansen and Sephora)
- The smell. It has a strong odor but it will keep you from biting your nails.

Would I buy it again?
YES!

What do you recommend for dry cuticles?

  1. Sounds like a great product. I've recently discovered how great Mavala polishes are, so I'll definitely try out the cream.

  2. Thanks for the tip - mine are always super dry too. I usually use Vaseline, or Beauty Secrets Nail Matrix Oil - it has a great smell : >

  3. Caudalie US have a fabulous hand and nail cream which works really well on cuticles. Try it sometime and let me know what you think!

  4. @Sherin - Ooh I didn't even know they made polishes haha

    @Patti- Oh I'll check out that Beauty Secrets oil

    @Styleonthecouch- I think that's what the lady at Sephora tried to sell me but it was like $40. I'm good with $11 :)
