Crystal File 060: Poshe AHA Cuticle Care VS. CND Cuticle Eraser

Many moons ago i learned about a magical cuticle treatment called CND Cuticle Eraser. When used in conjunction with a good cuticle moisturizer (cream or oil) this product helps to exfoliate dead tissue that would normally adhere to the nail plate. Prior to using Cuticle Eraser as part of my maintenance regimen, i had to use cuticle remover much more frequently, and the skin surrounding my nails was rough and hard. Cuticle Eraser became an HG for me, and i haven't gone without it since.

I am always, however, searching for the next best thing. So i began searching out other products similar to CND Cuticle Eraser, trying to determine if one might be even better. There was no way to know save to try. So i ordered two tubes of Poshe AHA Cuticle Care and have been using it for several weeks now.

For two very simple reasons CND Cuticle Eraser wins this smack down. 1)It smells better. I don't like flowery, and Poshe is flowery. CND Cuticle Eraser has a light, fruity smell that is far more appealing to me. 2)CND Cuticle Eraser absorbs more quickly. Since i generally use my AHA product just before bed (after i'm freshly mani'd) and follow it with my HG cuticle cream, Lush Lemony Flutter, i need something that absorbs quickly. Poshe just doesn't soak into my skin as quickly as Cuticle Eraser.

That said, if the smell of Cuticle Eraser is unappealing to you, perhaps you should try Poshe AHA Cuticle Care. It is still a very nice product, and very effective.

On another note, Zoya Twist has landed at my house! I hope to be able to get swatches done tomorrow, when the weather person says i shall have sun. Keep your beautifully manicured fingers crossed for me.

I have been using CND CE for a few weeks now. I was like "it's that easy?"

Glad to know I got it right on the head!! It truly is amazing.

I just picked up CND cuticle eraser yesterday after being grossed out for a week by the smell of the Poshe cuticle care cream... It got on my lips when I put lip balm on and tasted something awful!! I wonder if I just got an old tube, or are they all this bad??
