I’m not sure that too many people outside of professional nail techs and my fellow obsessive nail junkies over at MUA’s Nail Board know about CND Cuticle Eraser. I love this stuff. I carry it with me everywhere in my purse, I have it in the kitchen drawer, I even have it in my night stand drawer and I apply it every night before I go to sleep!
Cuticle Eraser is fantastic. It is a blend of alpha hydroxy acids meant to very gently exfoliate your cuticles and the surrounding skin. Simply apply a small amount to your cuticle and rub it in, no need to wash off. I also apply enough that I can rub it into the sides of my nail bed and the tips of my fingers. I try to apply at least once a day, and in an ideal world I would do this 2-3 times a day. Since using this cream my cuticles have been in much better shape- they are much less ragged, I once was plagued by painful, almost daily hangnails (they are no more), and even the tips of my fingers no longer peel!
I’ve found that Cuticle Eraser also offers a bit of moisture for my skin, though only enough to maintain current hydration, if that makes sense. When my cuticles are really needing extra moisture I reach for something like LUSH Lemony Flutter, one of my favorite cuticle creams.
While Cuticle Eraser is not a total replacement for a good cuticle remover (here’s my favorite cuticle remover), I do have to say that daily usage of this cream has dramatically improved my hands. I only have to use cuticle remover about once every 2-3 weeks when I’ve been consistently using CND Cuticle Eraser.
