Born Pretty Store Cuticle Pen Review

Hi dear readers !

Today's post will not be about nail polish as I have a lot of pictures to sort before I show you them, and not a lot of time!
But tomorrow I promise you a pretty Pink Wednesday manicure :)

The item I want to share with you today was offered to me for review by Born Pretty Store. I don't have to introduce them anymore, everybody talks about them and their products right now :)

When they asked me to chose some items to review, I chose a cuticle pen from their range. I love cuticle pens, they are usually "not your big moisturizer" but they are so easy to carry !
Now I've been using it for a bit more than a month, so here's my advice !

How to use it
Nothing is more easy. Remove the cap, twist the upper part of the pen until you get a drop of product on the brush and apply to your cuticles.

Product consistency
It's a non greasy oil. It leaves a shiny film on your skin which looks greasy, but it's not at all, so you can continue your activity right after the application. The product also doesn't run off your fingers or make them stick.
If you ever wonder what was the shiny thing around my nails on my most recent pictures, that's it :)

MoisturizingEven if it doesn't act like a cuticle balm or a very nourrishing cream (which is normal, after all), I feel this pen really made a difference for me. I must admit I forget to carry it in my bag and use it a couple of times a day, but I use this pen after each manicure to nourrish my cuticles after I do my contour cleaning, and also when I come back from work to revitalize the skin.
I tend to have very dry cuticles (even with cares) but it's going better since I started using it. Of course, I recommend not to use this product alone, but you should use it when you don't have time to make your usual moisturizing care. I use Lush Lemony Flutter or The Body Shop Almond Hand Repair once or twice a week, and the other days I use the cuticle pen from BPS :)

ScentThis cuticle pen comes into various scents. I chose Pomegranate because I love this fruit a lot, but my pen had a very light scent. I don't know if the other ones have a stronger smell, but well, is that really important ? I mean, I didn't get that product to have my nails perfumed.
What's important for me is it doesn't have a strong chemical and/or unpleasant smell. The Pomegranate pen has a very light fruity scent which doesn't stay very long, so even if you feel like you did a bad choice when getting your cuticle pen, it's not really a problem.

Will I buy it again ?
Definitely, yes. For that price and considering it has good results, it's really a must have.

Where to find it: Born Pretty Store
Price: 1.61$ (with free shipping on every order)
Available in Aloes, Apple, Jasmine, Kiwi, Pomegranate, Lavender, Peach, Rose & Strawberry.
They also come in 4, 6 or 10 packs with different perfumes in each.



Well, did you ever tried or plan to try BPS' Cuticle oils ?
I hope you found this review interesting :)

Great review by the way, this has only made me want them more so thank you ;D
