While I was browsing products in The Body Shop a few days ago, I bought this Almond Oil Nail & Cuticle Treatment ($12). Not only did it have an olfactory allure (it smells like sweet nuts) but the formula really works. I love the fact that my cuticles actually feel soft enough after a few uses to be able to push them back with the rubber tip that is conveniently housed on the end of the cap.

I guess it's the mixture of organic olive oil, Vitamin E and almond oil that helps moisturize, soothe and smooth out rough, dry and dehydrated cuticles. They even seem less red and puffy — and the skin around my nails is more supple too, which I think improves the overall look of my hands.

Out of all of the cuticle oil pens that I've tried so far, this even blows away my creamy old fave from Sephora. All you have to do is paint the oil onto your cuticles and rub it in with your index finger. It's the perfect beauty playmate to keep in your pocketbook or desk drawer, since you can apply it as often as you like.
