When I wrote about the newest Bourjois launches (check them out here) I had a feeling I’d like the Magic Nail Care Treatment pot, and I was right – it’s absolutely awesome. It’s a little pot containing an oil-soaked sponge with a little hole in it that you dip your fingers into, and this gives each finger a full cover of oil that you then rub in – it sounds like it’ll be messy but the oil is very light and I’ve actually found I create less mess oiling my cuticles this way than I do when I use a more traditional pipette/pen formula for such a task.
The hole in the sponge opens up when you put your finger in, so don’t worry if you have big fingers like me, you’ll still be able to slot your fingers in. It’s a very quick process – dip it in, twirl it around, lift it out – but you can take longer and leave your finger in there for a bit if you’re doing a manicure or have particularly dry and tough cuticles; it’s a comfortable product to use so you don’t need to rush it. Thankfully, whilst it’s very novel, it’s also very practical, so I can see myself using this regularly – so far I’ve used it every night and it’s slotted into my routine with ease. I can also see it lasting quite a while making it a very cost-effective purchase at £6. It’ll be interesting to see how the sponge gets on with other oils once it’s run out; I’ll be giving that a go but I think it’ll be a while! It’s here – link – and should go everywhere else later this month.
