Julep Essential Cuticle Oil

RATING (out of 5 stars): 2 stars

COST: $18

THE SKINNY: Julep's Essential Cuticle Oil is made of essential oils and Vitamin E and, like any cuticle oil, is designed to combat dryness around the nails and extend the life of a manicure.

This is a rollerball application. Glide the oil onto your cuticles and let it soak in.

I used it nightly for a few weeks. My cuticles appeared healthier and moisturized on the day I used the oil, but I found it to have little lasting benefit.

Once I stopped using the oil nightly, my cuticles went back to their normal, slightly dry, state.

KEEP OR TOSS: Toss and find a better product.

CHECK IT OUT: Maybe it's just me? Allure magazine made Essential Cuticle Oil one of the "Editor's Favorite" products in July 2010.
