Sally Hansen Cuticle Eraser + Balm

**Product provided for review. All opinions are my own.**

Caution! Naked nails ahead!

As you can imagine, swatching a lot of polish can be rough on your cuticles so it's good to have a lot of options for repair. Sally Hansen's Salon Manicure Cuticle Eraser + Balm is the one I keep on my nightstand because it provides deep-down moisturizing relief. It is also a bit greasy and takes a while to soak in so overnight works best for me.
You really don't need a lot — this amount will do five nails.
I swirl my finger along the spiral to get a good mix of the colors and dab it along the base of each nail (I don't know which color is the eraser and which is the balm or if there even is a difference, but I do it just to be sure.) I don't have much of a cuticle problem as far as removal goes because I do daily maintenance but I need to moisturize constantly!
I put extra on each nail for photo purposes.
Then I massage it into each nail and the surrounding cuticle area. I really work it into the cuticles!
I leave this amount along the cuticle edges overnight.
Next I apply hand lotion and go to sleep. The little bit I leave on the cuticles soaks in overnight and I wake up to beautifully moisturized cuticles. Now if it would only work on whitening my yellowed nails along with it!
How they look by morning.
Sally Hansen Salon Manicure Cuticle Eraser + Balm is available at drug and department stores nationwide and retails for about USD$8.00.

  1. Might need to try this! Does it have a scent?

    1. I didn't notice one until you asked and I held it to my nose. It does have a very faint scent, not exactly floral but pleasantly sweet.

  2. I use this moisturiser as well, and I like it!

  3. I have seen this product before and read a lot of reviews and it sounds great! My only question is on a few of the ingredients...I don't claim to know what each and every ingredient is in beauty products, but this one has urea in it which I immediately questioned. After some research, I see that it is used in a lot of moisturizing beauty products!

    1. My dad was a chemical engineer and he told me once that urea (also known as carbide) is often used for hydration. It's also used in hair conditioners and (yuck) tooth whitening products.
