My cuticles can go from zero to ragged in 3.5 seconds, especially in winter. During a recent visit to French Pink Kara, my nail saviour/manicurist, suggested I try Scholl's Eulactol Cuticle & Nail Cream Gold. It's an emollient cream that works to keep the cuticles hydrated.
Before going to bed every night I pop a small amount on the pad of my index finger and massage the nail beds and along the cuticles until the cream has been completely absorbed.
The biggest test for me was my visit back to the States and going two whole weeks without a manicure. The horror, I know. To prevent my cuticles from drying out, I religiously slathered this stuff on in an effort to keep my nails as happy as possible.
It's been close to two months since I first started using Eulactol Cuticle and Nail Cream Gold and I've noticed a major improvement. Manicures last longer (less chipping), my two problem nails (right index and middle fingers) no longer peel, cuticle trimming is almost a thing of the past and pulled hang nails heal in record time (note to self: stop pulling them).
The only slight downer is the scent, it smells like old lady perfume. If you can get past that, your cuticles will go from this (said in my cheesiest infomercial voice):
I was so happy with the results I even left a tube with my Dad to help treat his troublesome nails.
