Today I'd thought I'd review one of my favourite cuticle gels.This is the Sally Hansen VitaSurge cuticle gel. I use this pretty much every time I do my nails and photograph them for the blog so it's after getting a fair bit of use. This is the first Sally Hansen nail care product I have used and I have to say if this is their standard then I will e checking out more of their products soon.
VitaSurge cuticle gel comes in a glass bottle with a doe foot applicator. It has a slight smell of oranges off of it which is pleasant. As it's a gel it takes no time at all to rub in. The best part about it is the fact that it dries in seconds with a matte finish. When I'm swatching a few polishes in one go it means I can keep my cuticles nice and happy after the barrage of acetone I throw at them without having a wet, glossy look in the pictures.
On the Sally Hansen website they dedscribe the product as having "Multi-active bead infused formula instantly releases a surge of nourishing Vitamin E & Botanical Extracts to condition & hydrate cuticles". I agree with the conditioning and hydrating claims. Regardless of how bad my cuticles look, a quick coat of VitaSurge and they are back on form in time for photo's.
Each bottle comes with 13.3ml of product which will last an absolute age! I apply the gel fairly regularly and I still have a good third left in the bottle. I believe it costs around $6.80. This was given to me by Kaki a fair while back. I haven't seen it in any Irish store so I'm not sure we can get it here which is a shame. If you can get it handy enough then I'd say definitely give it a go.
