BEST NAIL CARE

THIS IS DEFINITLY ONE OF THE BEST NAIL CARE BRAND E V E R BIG TIME YES FOR SURE !!

Sonya Cornland, IL

This was a bad joke

There’s an insert in the package telling me how important cuticles are to nail growth, and I get that, but every now and then, they need to be abolished from the nail for appearance sake. That’s what I thought would happen with this "minimizer." But I was wrong. Nothing happened. Nada. Talk about a waste of money, if you want to throw your hard earned cash away, buy this. If you want to simply remove/push back cuticles, use anything else. I’ve been using Sally Hansen most all of my life, and I shouldn’t have experimented. Barielle in my opinion is an overpriced line that has snob appeal but nothing else. All show, no go. Don’t waste your money.

Works well

It works really well for me and makes my finger tips much softer. However I don’t like the fact that the skin under my nails get dry and flaky so I have to watch that and scrub the skin and lotion well after. Otherwise good buy for when I don’t want to do my nails while showering.

Maybe it’s a little too strong?

I put the product into a small dish, I dip my fingers into it and let them soak for about a minute. Then one by one I carefully pulled away the loose cuticles. The product worked very well. That night I noticed that my fingertips felt very scratchy whenever I touched certain types of fabric. Not only had it removed the cuticles, but it also made for a lot of extra "loose" skin all over my fingertips and fingers. If I am to use this again I will do it one finger at a time.Carefully apply it to just my cuticle areas. When it says skin remover/cuticle remover, it really means it. My fingertips and any area that the product touched felt very dry and "scratchy" for the next week. I ended up massaging Vaseline and Aquaphor into my fingertips and cuticles for the next week or so just to bring them back to "normal". Like I said if you’re going to use this product, do one finger at a time, and use a Q-tip or small brush to carefully apply the liquid to the cuticle area only. It is not a thick cream or even a thin cream, it is runny like water, so the best bet is to put it into a little dish, and then apply from there. because if you squeeze it onto your finger you will waste a lot of it, and make a huge mess while you’re at it. This product does work, it does do what it says it is made for, but there is a little bit of a learning curve to using it properly, and a little bit of trial and error to getting it right. So if you have horrible cuticles like me this is the product for you, but please heed my warnings. When your manicure is done, your cuticles may benefit from a strong moisturizer such as Vaseline or Aquaphor.

Worth all the hype

When it comes to beauty I believe that cleanliness is one of the most important steps along with applying SPF creams and moisturizers, drinking water and sleeping (which is hard to do since I love to read till the wee hours). Cleansing loosens dirt particles, dislodges makeup stuck in every nook and crevice or prepares the face for the new day ahead. Morning and evening ritual of face washing can be a sweet indulgence, especially when I pamper it with the fancy Komenuka Bijin rice bran powder. The container houses thirty packets and each one can provide about three or more uses, depending how much is poured out. I love to mix the pale grains into a smooth and creamy paste that caress my face with a soft flurry of gently cleaning lather.I won’t repeat the list of ingredients as each Komenuka product comes with instructions and a detailed list of exotic items. The glow my face obtains with this wash is really fabulous and there is no dryness and discomfort, in fact I look forward to washing my face and take great pleasure at the benefits I can feel and see. Without thorough cleansing, it would take about twenty five days for the dirt and build up to wear off the face, not including the dirt that would start piling up on top of the skin as it would try to slough itself off. Proper care is necessary for a harmonious relationship with our biggest organ that expresses even the tiniest nuance, joy or discord through our facial muscles and the quality of the epidermis. The tiny grains in this powder blend well with water and are portable and easy to take when traveling as no one wants to drag bottles of creams and liquids on any trip. I also recommend the shampoo and conditioner form this line as they are truly standout products that do make a difference in how my skin and hair looks and feels.- Kasia S.

Not remarkable

This stuff didn’t do anything extraordinary for me, and certainly did nothing to justify the high price. It foams up and washes off easily but I broke out while using it. Either I was having a reaction from the ingredients or it did a poor job of cleansing(my guess is the latter). The only thing I really liked about it is its portability. This product is mediocre at best and there are much better cleansers.

this product is great!

At first, I wondered about rice bran and its effectiveness as a cleanser for skin. It made sense, but I had never used it before. Previously, I had found oatmeal to be a very effective detoxifier for my skin, when I had a bad skin rash. It pulled out the toxins very quickly and my skin felt so healthy!The ingredients for this great product, put out by Komenuka Bijin Facial Cleansing Powder are: rice bran extract, aloe extract, seaweed extract and coconut oil. That’s right….all natural ingredients that you can very easily pronounce (unlike some skin care products whose moisturizers, cleansers and toners consist predominantly of chemicals, engineered in a lab, that are tested quite heartlessly on innocent lab animals). The great thing about this gentle scrub is that it doesn’t take much to be effective. In fact, they reccomend that you use only 1/3 of a packet of the product, then mix it with warm water in your hand and apply it directly to the face. You can feel the cleansing powder work almost immediately. For me, my skin felt a lot cleaner, once I had massaged it in. Once I rinsed it off, my skin was so soft. There aren’t any fruit acids, here, to burn and add abrasion to the delicate facial skin. Also, my face felt firmer and looked smoother. Great product! Yes, it’s a little pricey, but a little goes a long way and it’s very effective!

No good for hard gel

I bought this because the hard builder gels were not adhering to my natural nails. This has not helped at all. The hard gels still are not lasting more than a few hours before they start flaking off. The soak off gels stay on fine, so I’ll probably just use this under the soak off foundation. But I wanted gels that would strengthen my nails for the winter, and I could polish over with RNP, sadly gelish is not working for me. I’ll try some of the other hard gels from other companies eventually, it just sucks I’ve wasted almost $50 (all together) on hard gels that don’t work

Bonds Harmony Hard Gel like a PRO

Rather than go to the salon to get gel (powder) nails with plastic tips or a gel manicure, I use Harmony hard gel to add thickness to my natural nail surface. I use Pro Bond to dry the natural nail surface so the hard gel will adhere. My manicures are hard and strong and last up to 2 weeks. I have experienced some lifting along the back edge after 1 week, but I apply some nail glue and press it back down and it lasts for another week.I would recommend this product to anyone who wants to save money and has the time and the talent to paint their own nails. An LED light is required to set the hard gel. These lamps are available on Amazon. There are lots of YouTube videos to show you how to use this product and do your own gel manicures. LOVE IT!

holds like iron!

This product is great. The hold on my gel nails is perfect.No peeling or lifting! Does not soak off as easily as the rest of the product line, which is fine, a bit of buffing takes it off. My nails did not lift at all, which was what I was looking for. Highly recommend. Use the PH bond first, then this and cure as you would the other gels.

Better than any other cuticle treatment I’ve tried!

I got this as a birthday gift from my dad who had a store clerk pick it out for him because naturally he knows nothing about nail care. I wish I knew who she was so I could thank her, because this stuff is AMAZING.This works better than most "big brands" of cuticle oil/creams I’ve tried. Essie, OPI, Burt’s Bees, and ORLY can’t compete. It works into your skin so easily, I barely need any pressure to push my cuticles back anymore, and I used to need A LOT, and they look so pretty now.First off, a little goes a long, LONG way. 3-4 drops was enough for both of my hands to be almost soaked in the stuff. I have the 8 oz bottle and I anticipate it lasting me the better part of 2 years, at least, with twice daily use. This oil is super moisturizing, it’s heavy duty stuff. I saw a world of difference in my cuticles after the first use. They looked neater, not even slightly ragged, and the skin around my nails just felt so wonderfully soft. Also, it doesn’t dry greasy or sticky like some cuticle stuff does. It takes a little while, but it dries, well, dry.The consistency is watery, but honestly I think that’s a good thing because it makes working it into your skin so much easier. The bottle makes it tricky to handle the oil without getting it all over everything, so do yourself a favor and use a cleaned out nail polish bottle or an empty eye-drop bottle or something to make it easier on yourself. But don’t worry if you get it all over your hands, they’ll end up super soft too if you do!I don’t think I’ll find anything than this, I think I may have found my HG cuticle oil. So ladies, TRY IT, it’s awesome!

Made In Japan

And the better for it. You can immediately feel the quality in the build quality and during use. It’s very sharp and takes little effort to use. I used these in Japan and was delighted to find them here. My only complaint is that the size and curve of the cutter end is obviously made for smaller fingers than my size medium hands and my wife’s size small hands. We work around it and it’s still the best clipper I can find, but it sure would be nice if it was sized to western fingers.

Excellent baby nail clipper

Being a person who fixates on weird objects and must try all of them until I figure out which are the BEST, I recently ordered these Seki Edge Baby Nail Clippers and also the yellow Tweezerman Baby Nail Clippers I found here on Amazon. The Seki clippers are the best I’ve found to replace an old pair that have gotten quite dull. Their most important feature? The blades are sharp enough to clip precisely and the head is narrow enough to work well on tiny fingers.For the past 6 years, I’ve been trying to find a second pair of the fantastic baby nail clippers that I got SOMEWHERE after my first child was born, but the fog of sleep deprivation (or the flurry of baby showers) left me utterly blank as to where those came from. I bought pair after pair of clippers from the drugstore, the grocery store, the baby superstore at the mall… Most baby clippers are too dull, leaving me to tear (instead of quickly clip) my restless kids wiggly fingers. Many baby nail clippers have ridiculously bulky plastic casings and often cheap, useless “magnifying glass” parts that get in the way and slow down what needs to be quick work. (My older son is is school-aged now, but still fights me when it comes time to trim his scraggly nails.)The old, exalted baby nail clipper was, quite simply, a tiny version of the same all metal nail clippers I use on myself. The cutting blade narrows from the width of the clipper body on the old ones–and, probably not coincidentally, on the Seki clippers, too–but, otherwise they look just like the full size version. These Seki clippers differ from my old ones in that the body is narrower than an adult pair, but the overall length of the nail clippers is about the usual size of an adult pair. The underside of the lever handle has a “nail file” area like many adult clippers. They also have raised metal pieces running down what would usually be the open sides of the two long, flat parts that end in the two cutting blades. This is probably designed to catch the clippings, but, at least in our restless nail clipping experience, you’ll still be better off clipping over a wastebasket.

No thanks!

I like the packaging and the "all natural" approach to cuticle cream but this stuff did not fly with me.It is very greasy and does not absorb into the skin around the nails. Even though I used very little and wiped my fingers with tissue paper… I left little finger grease marks all over everything I touched.The smell is terrible. At first I thought it smelled like Lemon Pledge, which wasn’t great, but tolerable. However, after it started drying, it left more of a lemon with a touch of skunk smell on my fingers. Not good.

Like Lemon Pledge for your cuticles

This is a nice tin of thick balm that is laden with lemon oil. You rub it into your cuticles to prevent cracking, flaking and drying. You actually can rub it all over your hands if they are very chapped. The oil even helps to keep nails from splitting and cracking. It smells like a lemon grove.The three-pack is nice because you can put one in your office drawer, one at home at your desk and one in your purse.

Bliss Kiss Simply Pure Cuticle & Nail Oil Starter Kit – Crisp – Better Than OPI Avoplex

What it is: A blend of Jojoba wax ester (more than you’ll find in any other nail product on the market!), olive and grape seed oils, vitamins, and scented oils designed to penetrate your nails and skin while filling your nostrils with a divine scent! What it does: Because Jojoba is almost molecularly identical to our body’s natural “oils” Pure Nail Oil penetrates your nails, keeping them strong and flexible. The Jojoba also penetrates your skin, keeping it soft and healthy. Why you need it: Hard, brittle nails break. Strong nails are flexible and bend against outside forces. Pure gives your nails what they need to flex so they break less. Your nails will be longer and stronger! Plus, Pure is the only nail and cuticle oil that works by repairing brittle, chipping, and peeling nails in 3 days (when following the Initial 3-Day Hydration Treatment), eliminating hangnails within 5 days, and visibly reducing skin wrinkling. Crisp Starter Kit: Our Starter Kit is just what you need when you are getting started with our nail oil. During the 3-Day Initial Hydration Treatment your nails and cuticles absorb A LOT of oil while they are getting back into balance. Our Starter Kit comes with one 2ml Nail Oil Pen and one 15ml Nail Oil Bottle so you will have plenty of oil to get your nails in balance. Our Crisp scent is an intoxicating and effervescent blend of lemon zest, pink grapefruit, juicy pomegranate and spiced vanilla. We’re pleased to be able to say that Crisp has a 100% LOVE rate among hundreds of customers.

A Real Nail Saver!

I’ve spent the last few months using a jojoba based oil I made myself but wasn’t getting quite the results I was looking for. I’d seen Pure Oil many times on other blogs that I follow but didn’t decide to take the plunge myself until recently.I received my starter kit last Friday, well ahead of the first estimated deliver date, and started right away. My 3 day challenge ended about noon today but I forgot to take the after pic before I put on polish. I can say, however, that I am a customer for life. I saw immediate improvement with the first application. The oil just soaked into the dry patches and made my cuticles feel soft and moisturized. by the end of the day, I felt like I was constantly oiling but that’s just how dehydrated my nails were. By today, I was oiling a lot less but my nails still looked well hydrated, even after exposure to water.The pen is easy to use. Just click the non-brush end several times and you’re good to go. Really makes it easy to apply the oil on the go. I tend to apply more of it when using the bottle but no worries. the oil works great on the rest of my hands, too.I had intended on ordering the fragrance free but apparently failed to make that choice when I placed the order. No worries there, either. The Crisp scent is wonderful and doesn’t irritate the scent-sensitive people in my life, which includes me.If you’ve got problem nails and nothing else has worked, give this oil a try. Seriously. My results after only 3 days makes the cost so worth it.

Does what it says!

I bought and used this under the impression that I didn’t really have any dead cuticle but it couldn’t hurt anything to try. I was really surprised to see how much gunk I was able to gently scrape away! I used a little bitty spray bottle to apply it, which makes it handy to just spritz a tiny bit on each fingertip, and then while it was still wet I used my metal cuticle pusher. I think this stuff also whitened my nails slightly, or it could just be that it broke down any residue of crap that was underneath.I also tried it on my feet — wetting my feet with it thoroughly, letting it sit a few minutes and scrubbing with a Salux cloth and foot file. Naturally, my toenails all looked great, but I’m not sure that it did a better job on my dry soles than a long hot soak followed by scrubbing. Maybe the magical recipe is the long hot soak and *then* the Blue Cross Cuticle Remover. At any rate the cuticle remover method is faster when I don’t have time to soak.

Good product

I just started using this product and it seems to work o.k. It does “soften” the cuticle and makes it easier to push and remove with a cuticle pusher/remover but I’m not sure if used alone it would remove cuticle by itself…the bottle is HUGE, so I am going to have it for a long, long time…

I LOVE this product!

I have been using this product forever – close to 20 years or more! One thing I love to do before I give my self a pedicure is to get very warm water in a bowl and squirt some of the Blue Cross liquid into the water. I then soak my feet for a short amount of time and then buff my feet – heels and rough skin etc. It makes my feet so smooth. And when I want to get the cuticles off my fingers I usually soak them as above first and then take a tool to remove the cuticles. Or I take a Q-tip and soak it in the Blue Cross and rub it around each finger – one at a time and then again remove the cuticle with a cuticle tool. I have tried SO MANY OTHER cuticle removers but NONE compare to this product…you will love it too!
