Another problem I have with my nails is splitting. My nails have always been pretty hard and are prone to splitting due to that. My beloved Duri Rejuvacote has formaldehyde resin in it which can contribute to the brittleness/dryness issue that can cause splits in hard nails. Major sad times. So even though it helps my nails grow long, I've stopped using it for now. They do make a formaldehyde free version, so I might try that in the future.
Anyway, in looking for a readily available, affordable solution to my issues, I found Bliss Kiss Pure Nail Oil. Basically it hydrates the nail to a ideal level of moisture for flexible healthy nails. Brittle nails don't have enough moisture, while thin and soft nails have too much. This oil has the ability to penetrate the nail plate and seal together the keratin fibers making your nails strong but flexible. It also helps cuticle skin become healthier and more hydrated because it creates the perfect blend of our body's natural oil (sebum) and moisture.
Here are the ingredients: Jojoba Wax Ester, Grape Seed Oil, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Tea Tree Oil, Vitamin E Oil, Vitamin A Oil, Essential Oil Blend. Notice there is an absence of any nut oils because owner/creator Ana is allergic to them and with them being prevalent in many cuticle treatments, she created her own.
I have been using the nail oil daily for the past two months and I am insanely impressed. My cuticles and the skin around my nails is incredibly healthier, softer, and more moisturized than I can ever remember them being. The skin on the corners of my fingers have NEVER been anything but hard and thick, but now they are soft and feel so healthy! I have also never had visible eponychium that actually look healthy and natural before! My instinct was to always cut that part away. My nails are still a work in progress, but since I've stopped using a treatment with formaldehyde resin I expect them to become even better soon.
If you haven't tried Bliss Kiss Pure Nail Oil yet and you have some nail and/or cuticle issues you're struggling to remedy, it might be just the ticket. You can order it through their website NailCareHQ.com starting at $5.99 for a click-able pen. I recommend their Starter Kit or Refill Kit, you're going to get more for your money and if you try their 3-Day Hydration Challenge, you're going to use up the entire pen in those three days for sure.
I really love this product and am so happy with my results that I wanted to share it with all of you! Let me know if you have tried this product and what your results were, or even if you're just interested in it. Take care and I'll be back soon with more nail polish, I've been incredibly busy this month!
