This past winter had been exceedingly hard on my cuticles and skin in general. It got so bad that my cuticles started to peel and crack open causing a lot of discomfort. I was in desperate need of some relief and turned to Badger’s Cuticle Care – and OMG and I happy that I did!
This cuticle care is made from shea butter and is a smooth, low in grease, topical butter that I apply twice daily to my cuticles and fingers. I say “low in grease” because there is a touch of grease when first applied, but it is quickly absorbed into the skin so it doesn’t get all over everything you touch!
The product is very creamy; unlike some other shea butters that are really hard and you have to work into it to get the product onto your hands – one swipe of my finger and I am ready to apply! This is due to some of the additive ingredients that make this NOT a pure shea butter product:
Ingredients: *Wild African Shea Butter, *Extra Virgin Olive Oil, *Castor Oil, *Golden Yellow Beeswax, *Seabuckthorn Berry Extract, and Essential Oils of *Geranium, *Ginger, *Cardamom, *Rosemary, *Litsea Cubeba, *Mandarin & *Lemongrass.
Right after applying you start to see results as the product instantly moisturizes and reduces the appearance of dryness. However, the feeling of dryness took about 3-4 weeks to finally start dissipating. I feel like if I had used this product at the start of the winter as a preventative to dryness, I would have seen better results and not had to wait almost a month – I will be doing this next winter!
The smell is nice – not the best, but not the worst. And the size is just perfect for carrying in my purse and always having it handy. I have also started to use the product on my dry elbows! So far, I am seeing great results! And a good think to note: this product is certified organic.
