Flexitol Cuticle & Nail Cream review
I've tried a lot of cuticle treatments and oils (OPI, Lush, Nails Inc, Burts Bees, Dior) and Flexitol works the best for me. It's not at all glamorous, but the combination of lanolin, urea and lactic acid in it help to keep my cuticles flexible and prevent them growing halfway up my nails.
I can't attest to the nail growth properties; my nails (like my hair) grow like weeds anyway and I have to chop them down every week for fighting (at karate). I do find my nails seem more nourished and flexible and I've had no flaking at the tip since using this (I use it at least once a day; I put it on in the evening or on the train on the way into London). It's a thickish cream with a medicinal smell.
The 20g tube is about £5, and I bought it at Boots (it's with the handcare stuff).
