Superdrug Conditioning Cuticle Oil Pen - Review

Superdrug Cuticle Oil Pen


I heard about this a couple of weeks ago, shouted down the blogosphere grapevine, emanating from a very exciting source indeed. The Vogue beauty team, thank you very much. They claimed that it perked up pesky nails a treat, and at a smidge (under £3!), it was a no-brainer for me to test.

The pen itself is nicely designed, with a lid that doubles up as a cuticle pusher (probably not the technical term...), and a brush which you apply to your cuticles after a cheeky squeeze of the pen's body. 

Vitamin E is known for being a moisture hero, and this claims to not only soften unruly cuticles, but strengthen and help growth of you talons themselves. I have only been using it for a few days (and I have a Shellac Mani atm, courtesy of Perfect 10), so I can't judge the growth or appearance for a while, but it definitely softens my cheeky cuticles and dries without being greasy or sticky, so perfect for an on-the-go digit dressing.


Multi-tasking Lid

Easy to Use Brush

I am loving this product, definitely so far so good, and it's great knowing it won't break the bank to try it! If it's good enough for Vogue...

What are your best nail tips (pardon the pun)...? Have you tried this too? Let me know... I love hearing nail tales.


Love Lauren xx

  7. Hey, cute blog. My nail tip I'm going to share is actually advice from a nail technition I use to know many years ago. She once told me the best mosturising agent you can use for hands/fingers/feet and toes is olive oil. Just rub it in and give your self a massage. For the best results do it before bed and wear gloves/socks to lock the mosture in. I've tried it, and it really works. Helps keep the feet soft and smooth, and prepared for thw summer manicures!
