Fab find: Sally Hansen Quick Care Massaging Cuticle Treatment

My fingernails take a lot of abuse, thanks to my career of choice. Between hammering away at my computer keyboard for hours on end, and testing oodles of nailpolish, it’s no wonder they’re usually frail and peeling into multiple layers. (Gross!) Finally, I had to put the kibosh on nailpolish of any kind, and instead asked my manicurist at Dove Spa (read my review of Dove Spa here) to help me nurse them back to health. After a decadent paraffin treatment and a polish-free clean-up, they’re looking miraculously strong, long and—amazingly—confined to one layer only.

Now, I’m resolved to keep them that way. My friend B. introduced me to this nifty pen from Sally Hansen that you can whip out of your bag to keep your cuticles nourished all day long. (Because I suspect that I might have been a tad, er, inattentive in duly oiling and moisturizing my fingertips.) Obviously, I’m blaming my negligence on not having the oil in a pen form, which is so much more convenient. This one contains sweet almond oil, mango seed butter and tea tree oil—all good stuff for thirsty cuticles.

Sally Hansen is at select drug stores and mass retailers across Canada.

I was OBSESSED with the Olay cuticle pen that P&G launched about 10 or so years ago. It was amazing, an insta-mani in 10 wee drops. Best cuticle pen I’ve ever tried, and I’ve tried a few. I was so upset when they discontinued it (not a big enough money maker) — but then PR-gal Sarah Kemp (I’m pretty sure it was Sarah) managed to find me the last box of three the company had in Canada. And you know what? I still have one squirreled away! (“Archived,” Liza Herz would say!)

Now I’ll have to try this one to see how it compares!

Hi Janine….I too used this nail pen for my nails. I still have several (8) left. You can still purchase them on Ebay and if not, I would sell you mine. I no longer use them. I found another treatment that is completely AWESOME, Talika Nail Regenerator Serum. It comes in pen form and you only need to use it for 28 days to see guaranteed results.
