Get Polish-Ready Nails with Borghese Rejuvenata Cuticle Oil

If it weren't for the 75% off deal, I would have never stumbled across this delightful cuticle oil. It first appeared to be an overpriced clear nail polish in RiteAid, but as I observed each and every color, I came to the realization that this was not a polish but rather an oil for cuticle-rejuvination purposes. (The name clearly did not hint to that...) Ann ( and I decided to bring home little Borghese and from that moment on, my nails have changed.

While our time together has been a bit more than a day, I'm already in love. This cuticle oil absorbs with a medium time and leaves my entire nail beautiful, so I wouldn't mind leaving them naked once in a while.

The Basics:
Formula: Thin Liquid
Scent: Vanilla Almond
Cost/Availability: $8.00 for 0.4 oz
Packaging: Nail Polish Bottle w/ Nail Polish Applicator
Rating: 4.5/5 or A

Recommended Use: Brush on to cuticles and nail and massage in. Remove with soap and water or nail polish remover before applying nail laquer or let absorb and skip laquer.

Formula: This vanilla almond-scented cuticle oil is a very water-y and thin liquid infused with natural oils like Jojoba, Sweet Almond, and Sunflower for ultimate hydration. It appears to be water in the bottle but it applies like a wonderfully smooth and thin nail polish -- sans the nasty smell. It takes a bit of time to absorb depending on how much you apply, but the results are worth it. My nails look so much better and I've been using this for a day. The nail bed looks brighter and my peeling has decreased. The surface is now smooth and hydrated on the nail and the cuticle.
