Hoofer's Choice Nail and Cuticle Cream

The Product

Hoofer's Choice Nail and Cuticle Cream is a thick, moisturizing cream to be applied around your nails.  It promotes both nail and cuticle strength while conditioning skin.  This cream retails for $3.49 at Sally Beauty Supply but with a Beauty Club card, the price is only $2.99.  If you do not have a Sally Beauty Supply near you, it is also available (though at a higher price) on Amazon.

The Function

Strange name.  Superior results.  I cannot express how impressed I am with this product.  And how thankful I am that I finally found it!  This winter has been particularly harsh on my skin and my cuticles really got the worst of it.  They were painful I was unable to remove nail polish and put a fresh coat on to protect my nails.  This product saved my cuticles within 24 hours!  It was amazing.

The directions for this product say to apply a generous amount, but it is so thick and rich you do not need much!  A pea size amount is more than enough for both hands.  I simply massaged around each nail and let the product soak in.  It is not greasy, but you do need to let it absorb.  I reapplied it after washing my hands throughout the day. 

The first time I applied this cream I had instant relief and saw an improvement once the product absorbed.  The visible dead skin (sorry for the unappealing visual) seemed to disappear and has continued to improve ever since.  Less than 24 hours after using this product for the first time I was able to remove my chipped nail polish, apply a fresh coat and see my skin finally healing after a harsh winter.  For the price, this cream is a steal!

The Style

This nail and cuticle cream comes in a 1 oz plastic container that is a couple inches in diameter.  It is easy to reach in and get product, unlike the apricot cuticle cream I had been using most recently (and will never use again!).  It is not the most attractive product but when you need relief from dry, cracked, even bleeding cuticles (sorry for another lovely visual) you need results, not pretty packaging!  I appreciate the generous size of this product and how easy it would be to travel with.  

The Bottom Line

This is definitely an instance where it is what's on the inside that counts!  Would I have been drawn to purchase this product over others while scanning shelves at the store?  I honestly do not think so.  Doing your research ahead of time can help save you time and most of all money when in search of new products.  I am certainly glad I did this time!  My local Sally Beauty Supply had only three of these on the shelf.  If you do not see any, ask and find out when they will restock.  You will not be sorry!!  Happy shopping!

Love,
The Beauty Puff
