I received a full size of the Handbag Holiday Cuticle Oil by Butter London in my January Sample Society subscription box, and I was so excited about it because it’s something I can really use in my collection. It was the first thing I pulled out and gave a try, and I instantly fell in love with it’s coconut and pineapple fragrance. I wouldn’t necessarily expect to love that scent, but to me this smells more like a luxurious shampoo than a fruit basket.
This immediately found a home on my desk, where I’d remember to open it up and use it on the regular. Honestly, I’m completely in love. For the first few days I had it I kept smelling my hands and offering them to my boyfriend exclaiming, “My hands smell so good! Smell ‘em!”
Besides smelling like a dream, it’s also made a rapid noticeable impact on my cuticles. My hands tend to be chronically dry, and the skin around my nails gets torn up really easily. Within about 2 days of using the cuticle oil I could see the skin healing and looking smooth and my cuticles have definitely become more manageable and attractive. The oil feels pretty lightweight, so I can use it pretty liberally and don’t have to worry about my fingers being an oily mess for a long time after I apply it.
This is a great time of year to be experimenting with a cuticle treatment, and it’s also a great time of year to get a whiff of a vacation in a bottle. I dig the look of Butter London’s rectangular bottles, so I like seeing this sit on my desk next to my computer monitor, as well. There are certainly cheaper cuticle oils out there, but a bottle will last a will last a really long time and I’m just absolutely loving this one. The more I love it, the more I’ll use it, right?
How are your hands holding up this winter? Are there any treatments that you’re loving right now?
