As some of you may have read in one of my previous posts, i took a brief foray into the unknown and spent a roughly 4-6 week trial period using Poshe AHA Cuticle Care (instead of my HG CND Cuticle Eraser). I posted a short while ago that while i still prefered CND Cuticle Eraser, they seemed to work equally well.
Here's the thing, I've since concluded that i was sorely mistaken. I began to notice that i had quite a lot of peely, flaky skin around my nails. More of those lose edges that tempt me to, Eeeep!, bite the skin around my nails. As a result i switched back to Cuticle Eraser to see if my old HG might remedy the situation. All i can say is, WOW! The difference after only a couple of days is tremendous. I have hardly any of the icky, peely skin remaining. The skin around my nails is once more soft and smooth.
So my final conclusion is this, don't waste your dough on the Poshe product. I think my initial observation that the two products seemed to work equally well was simply a result of a rushed experiment. Once the effects of my long time use of CND Cuticle Eraser had worn off, the Poshe simply couldn't maintain as Cuticle Eraser always has. I've now purchased a HUGE (1.75 ounce) tube of my beloved Cuticle Eraser from one of my favorite e-tailers, and i won't be making this horrible mistake again!
In the Pipeline for review: I still have to get decent pictures of Essie Spring 2009 for you all, as well as the new Misa Speed of Life collection for Spring/Summer. Please keep your lovingly manicured fingers crossed that the weather cooperates at least one day this week. I need some sunlight to provide you all with pics!
