I'm never seen without painted nails, ever. I re-paint my nails every 2-3 days and when I have time there's nothing I love more than a proper good manicure, so when I was offered the chance to review this 60 second manicure I jumped at the chance.
There's nothing better than a fresh manicure is there? Perfectly painted nails and gorgeously moisturised and pampered hands. I'm always on the hunt for new and raved about products so I knew this was a product I needed to try.
This 60 second manicure from Beauty Kitchen is 100% natural. It contains no parabens, synthetic fragrances and only uses 100% pure essential oils. It's said that your hands are the first true give away to your real age, so they deserve just as much care as you'd give your face.
It claims in 60 seconds you can have it all, exfoliated, cleansed and hydrated hands and nails in 60 seconds. Easy huh?
It contains Himalayan salt, cranberry seeds, patchouli oil, organic olive oil and Abyssinian oil to name a few. You simply rub a generous amount into your wet hands, paying attention to any dry areas you may have, rinse off and dry. However, does it actually work?
I love the look of the product, the jar looks fab sitting on my makeup table or next to my sink in the bathroom. I love the fact it's in an air tight container too, I know the product inside is going to stay in it's best condition for a long time which is definitely a plus.
However, I really don't know how I feel about it. I hate the smell. Straight up instant dislike. I don't know what it is, I just don't get on with it. It almost smells medicinal, I'm guessing it's the Frankincense. It's also super oily. You need to have the rubber stopper in some attempt to stop it all seeping out and going everywhere. Once the lid is open, it's all over. If there's any on the inside of the lid it simply slides off on to any surface around it and because it's full of oil it stains.
The product itself is too oily for me too. It felt like I'd simply gone to the kitchen and marinated something in salt and oil. It seemed to take ages to wash off my hands and afterwards my hands felt greasy, like they needed to be washed again.
Once I re-washed my hands using soap, my skin did feel amazing. It was super soft and lovely but the feeling didn't last very long and I don't know if it was worth the hassle.
So I'm left leaning towards disliking this product but it did make my skin feel lovely, even if it was for a short while. I don't think I'd personally purchase this but if you love salt and oil based exfoliates then it's one for you. It's £9.99 a pot in Holland And Barratt's so it's one to do your homework on before you purchase!
