Blossom Cuticle Oil

Monday, October 18, 2010
I bought some Blossom Cuticle Oil recently, and I figured I'd do a little review on it.

I bought two of them, Lilac and one other scent (I'd check, except the little sticker fell off, lol).  They both smelled REALLY good, but I liked the Lilac one better and gave the other to my mom.  (Her cuticles are super dry...she really needs to step up her nail care!)

But how does this oil compare to others?  In the past, I've used Seacret's Cuticle Oil, Essie's Apricot Cuticle Oil, and Burt's Bee's Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream.

If I apply Blossom Cuticle Oil, I can already tell that I need to reapply within 8-12 hours.  Now this isn't so bad...I'd apply cuticle oil twice a day anyway.  But I just don't like that my nails go from moisturized to dry in such a short amount of time.  Each bottle runs around $2.50.

If I apply Seacret's Cuticle Oil, I can see my cuticles drying up within a day...sometimes two.  I feel like I don't have to be as diligent in applying the cuticle oil twice a day.  This oil doesn't really have any scent.  Each bottle runs around $10.00.

If I apply Essie's Apricot Cuticle Oil, I think I would need to reapply every 16-24 hours.  Cuticle oil is recommended to be used twice a day, so I guess it does its job.  This oil also smells pretty nice (though I'm not sure how "apricot" it smells, lol).  Each bottle runs around $4.00.

If I apply Burt's Bee's Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream, I can probably wait at least 1-2 days before reapplying.  Maybe this particular choice feels more moisturizing because it's a cream and not an oil.  It does have a nice refreshing lemon scent. Each container runs around $7.00.

All-in-all, I guess you get what you pay for.  The more expensive the bottle, the longer it lasts.  This may not be try for all cuticle oils, but it was for the ones I tried out.  I haven't finished any of the bottles, so I couldn't tell you how long they last.  I would guess a 4-6 months each.

If I were to recommend any of these, I would probably recommend the Burt's Bee's cream.  It just seems to work the the longest, and feels the most moisturizing.

Hope this review was helpful!  Till next time!
