Hey There Polished People!
As you may already know I’m a big Badger Balm fan. In fact, if you are looking for some last-minute stocking-stuffer type presents I absolutely recommend the Badger Balm ornament. Anyway, today isn’t about the regular Badger Balm, today is about a product that’s been around for a while but that I just finally got to try- Badger Cuticle Care!
Badger Cuticle Care
Badger Cuticle Care is a super smooth and silky cuticle balm. The best way I can describe it is that it’s like a solid oil. The surface of the balm is hard, but you don’t have to scoop any product up, you just rub your finger over it and the warmth of your finger will melt the top layer and pick up some of the product and you can rub it into your cuticles. I am a person who always has to scoop up product for it to feel like there’s enough on my skin, but trust me when I say that just what your finger picks up will be plenty. This tin is going to last me forever!! I’ve been using it daily for several weeks and as you can see it hardly looks like it’s been used! It absorbs quickly but keeps your cuticles soft for a long time. Also one of my absolutely favorite things about this, the thing that puts it way above my Sally Hansen cuticle balm, my Dionis cuticle balm and my Burt’s Bees cuticle balm, is that it doesn’t leave any gummy residue!! Those other balms leave this gross, gummy residue between my cuticles and nail polish that I oftentimes don’t see till I’m taking my photos, and this doesn’t do anything of the sort! I absolutely love it. I’ll never go back to Burt’s Bees (which quite honestly does nothing for me in comparison to this) or my Sally Hansen balm (which is the WORST when it comes to the gummy residue).
Ahhh the scent is heavenly. Badger Cuticle Care smells like lemongrass and ginger. It’s clean and fragrant but not over powering, and just makes me want to sniff my fingernails all day long (or rather all night long since I generally apply it before bed).
I have been trying so hard to avoid cutting my cuticles and only moisturize and push them back. I wasn’t sure it was possible for me to do that until I started using this product. My cuticles are definitely normal right now (as in, not cut into non-existence which is what I prefer) and they’re not dry at all! Look at my latest nails if you want proof. My cuticles are soft and smooth and look good up-close in all my pictures. If you’re someone who is leery about cuticle care (you know who you are!!) you should definitely give this a try. What good are nice nails if you have gnarly, jacked-up cuticles? No one wants to see that, people! Get some Badger Cuticle Care, give it one or two weeks and I guarantee you and anyone who looks at your nails/hands will be thankful!! 😉 This product has provided much better results than my other cuticle creams/balms and absorbs much better than my cuticle oils. It’s the best!
Yes, Please! or No, Thank You:
Do you really need to ask? YES, PLEASE!!! I love Badger Cuticle Care and like I said, will never go back to my former favorites. I love how it takes the best attributes from cuticle oil (moisturizing, long lasting, no residue) and cuticle balm (absorbs into the skin, lasts for a long time) and combines them into this great-smelling and long-lasting tin of cuticle goodness. I can’t stress how important nice cuticles are to having nice nails. If you want to take your nails from just nice to “wow.. are those real??” you need to use Seche Vite, a clean-up brush, and a good-quality cuticle balm such as this one. You can find Badger Cuticle Care and other Badger products at natural food stores, some gift shops (I found my first tin at Cracker Barrel) and on their website, BadgerBalm.com.
Have you tried Badger Cuticle Care? What is one of your favorites? Let me know if you’re a big ol’ Badger fan such as myself! As always, thank you all for reading and till next time- Happy Polishing!!
And PS: How cute is this card that I got from the awesome people at Badger Balm!! I love it!!
