Review: SEACRET Cuticle Oil + Body Lotion + NOTD

Hello! I recently caught up on all my lectures, so this is a good time to blog. : )  A couple of you were interested in SEACRET, having seen it in malls being promoted by pushy sales reps.  I certainly understand how this can dissuade people from trying their stuff, but I actually find it to be a solid brand.

SEACRET Cuticle Oil, Natural Body Lotion. The vile of oil is cute, but I would've preferred a wider base so it stands more stably.

The bottle is stiff, so you can't squeeze - just pour it out. There is a slight tendency to pour out more than you need, but the top is bottle-nosed so as to prevent spillage.

Really thin formula.


Absorbs pretty quickly - no oily residue remains afterwards.

So, here are my nails before. No polish, except strengthening base coat.

One drop of oil on each cuticle bed.

After it has absorbed completely.

Product: ~$15 for 1 fl.oz/ 30ml. Plastic hard bottle with screw top. 
Overall - cuticle oil:  5/5. I'd recommend for you to try this, if you are looking for cuticle treatment. I haven't tried many cuticle oils, so I'm sure there are comparable ones out there. But for my purposes, it's does well. It lasts throughout the day, certainly longer than Burt's Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream. It's liquid formulation allows it penetrate more fully into the skin.

********

This is more than enough to cover both hands/wrists.

Very smooth gel-like formula. Easy to blend, and not oily.

No residue.

Product:   ~$20. 6.8 fl.oz/200ml. They don't sell the Natural one anymore, but there's lots of other choices on their site.
Overall - body lotion:  3/5. This is a very good lotion. Better than most out there, but I feel that the results are comparable to Aveeno. So for me, this product is not cost-effective.

Final thoughts:    If you are thinking of improving the health of your cuticles/nails, you can certainly check out this brand.  Their products are solid and easy to use.  There are other brands out there and I can't say how they compare to SEACRET.  But with any care regiment, it's really your diligence and application consistency that'll make the difference in the end.

Lastly, a quick NOTD! Sephora by OPI - Nonfat Soy Half Caff.  I always put cuticle oil as the last step in my manicures.



Have a great week, everyone!  :)

    Your nails look so smooth and well moisturized after the treatment!

    I have very very dry cuticles all year round! I have tried quite a few cuticle creams/oils, but still did not successfully got rid of the dry cuticles. I think, it's because I'm just too lazy when it comes to cuticle/nail treatment.

    But after reading your post, I told myself, I should care about my nails and hands more properly! ;)

    Thanks for the post! I like that it absorbs right in. Cuticle oils in my experience have tended to just sit on top. Love your nails! :)

    cuticle oils are not necessarily good for us but not all of that we need natural products that has no side effects and harmful for use like Loreem
    it has natural ingredients that removes dead skin cells for more younger skin
