Boots Salon Nail and Cuticle Oil Review

So my trusty cuticle pen finally ran out and I thought I’d try a new one. I much prefer a self-contained cuticle oil that I can carry around in my handbag to use daily as otherwise I forget to apply it regularly. I didn’t want to pay a fortune for it but another challenge was many of the cuticle oils contain Almond Oil, which I am allergic to!

Boots Own Brand Oil

With all that in mind I decided to opt for the Boots own brand, Salon, Nail and Cuticle Oil. Looked pretty basic and at just £6.20  a good deal compared with other brands. It’s a 9ml glass vial with a roller ball on top.

Boots Cuticle Oil Roller

The viscosity (runny-ness) of this oil is similar to others I’ve tried but beware the roller doesn’t limit the amount coming out the bottle; turning the upside down and rolling over your nails will leave you dripping oil down your fingers, hands, arms! You’d soon run out of oil if you use it this way! Less is definitely more with this product. A little massage helps the oil to absorb into the right place too.

Salon Nail and Cuticle Oil

After two weeks use I’m really happy with the effect. My cuticles (and skin all round my nail) is soft and healthy looking. Admittedly I don’t have very unruly cuticles so some people may want a more ‘heavy-duty’ cuticle oil but for average nails, that just require a little extra moisture, this oil works well.

What do you think? Have you tried Boots Salon brand products? Do you have an all-time favourite cuticle oil?

  1. I really like the Jamberry cuticle oil. They used to have almond oil in the formula but they have recently switched to a formula without it. It’s priced the same as other brands but bigger bottle. Full disclosure I sell it. I love it and so do my friends.
