Badger Cuticle Care

petek, oktober 25, 2013

Cuticle Care is my first product from Badger and such product in general. I've never ventured into specialised nail care as I never had any particular concerns about my nails and cuticles, and I was quite happy using regular body/hand creams or just a regular chapstick. I have very healthy and hard nails, but about a month ago my cuticles became painfully dry, so I decided to give Badger's little helper a go. 

The balm is solid, actually very hard from the beginning and becomes much softer once the top layer is gone. Under the heat of fingertips it melts into an oil, but it's a thick oil that doesn't absorb quickly, so I prefer to apply it before going to sleep. I wasn't blown away by results. Honestly, TBS Honeymania body butter helped a lot more with dryness, which has now thankfully gone. Badger's Cuticle Care did leave my hands more moisturised, but it wasn't quite enough for my cuticles no matter the amount I used and it didn't help prevent any hangnails. I do, however, like it a lot for dry elbows and even more for my very dry soles. But the scent, oh the weird scent, is the thing that makes me dislike it. It's a strong lemongrass herbal scent (rosemary? Other reviewers say ginger), exactly the type of scent I genuinely dislike.


The product is packed in a small metal tin, which holds 21g of product and is a nice size to throw in a bag. It's quite a difficult packaging to operate with when your fingers are greasy from the balm. I've had it for a few months and I've used about 1/4 or 1/3 of the product (every day use).


It's a cuticle care product that could easily be called a multi purpose balm. I like the idea, but with a different, more pleasant scent. I'll used it up, but won't repurchase. It costs about 4€ on iHerb.

Have a great day!

  1. Ooo škoda, da ti ni bolj všeč :/ No, če ti ni fajn za prvotni namen, si vsaj našla še druge načine uporabe :D

    1. Saj če mi ne bi bil vonj smotan, bi ga verjetno še enkrat kupila, ker mi je super za te suhe predele :) Samo potem bi morala biti še večja količina.

  2. Ah, moj sveti gral za obnohtno kožico. :) Trenutno imam Lushev Lemony Flutter in se mi po Badgerju že hudo kolca, Lush me je zelo razočaral. Meni je neizmerno pomagal pri suhi obnohtni koži in tudi nohti so se mi manj cepili, ko sem ga uporabljala. Krasna zadeva. Sicer pa mi je vonj precej bolj všeč kot ta od Lusha, ki je nekako naftasta limona, res smrdi. Uporabljam pa te putre samo zvečer in z rokavicami, da res prepojijo kožo. :) Fino, da si vsaj alternativo našla za uporabo, da ni stran vržen denar. :)

    1. Lushevo nisem nikoli imela, vem pa da jo hvalijo. Nisem nek Lushev navdušenec, njihovi vonji se preveč ponavljajo, niso nič posebnega, pa še predragi so. Za tisto, kar uporabljam tale Badger care je dober, samo vonj mi je pa res čuden.

  3. Super ocena! Meni se zdi, da je veliko teh 'balmov' preveč voskastih in samo trenutno navlažijo kožo... Moram probat Lemony Flutter od Lush-a. :D

    Mogoče si že kje povedala ali napisala post, ampak a mi hočeš povedat kje in kako slikaš za blog (tvoje slike izdelkov so vedno videti tako profesionalne)? :)

    1. Ta se mi ne zdi tako voskast, samo je pa res trd od začetka.

      Nism. Po pravici povedano to izgleda izjemno neprofesionalno :D. Navaden velik bel papir za ozadje, nočna lučka s Philipsovo žarnico cool daylight in pa tale home-made zadeva: http://www.makeupsavvy.co.uk/2013/10/blog-photography-diy-reflector.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+co%2FXRuB+%28Makeup+Savvy%29
      Slikam pa pri oknu, da je še naravna svetloba.
      Sicer pa sama slika je samo 60% dela, drugo je vse urejanje s programi (posvetlitev, kontrast, urejanje barv,...). Ponavadi kar traja :)

    2. Kje pa imaš to postavljeno - na mizi ali kje drugje? A tale DIY je na eni strani izdelka, lučka pa na drugi? Jaz sem naročila 'photo tent', ampak ga še čakam, imam že tripod za fotoaparat, rabim pa še luči - tele Philipsove se dobi v trgovinah z opremo za dom (ala Dipo, Harvy Norman, Bauhaus)? Kakšno maš pa luč (svetilko)? Jaz sem najprej hotela kupit tiste kao profesionalne, pa so mi malo drage... Aja, kakšen imaš pa fotoaparat?

      Oprosti za vsa vprašanja, ampak rada bi malo izboljšala kvaliteto svojih slik, tvoje mi pa res super zgledajo. :D Lahko tudi napišeš post o temu, če se ti ne da tukaj na vse odgovarjat... bom vesela. :)

    3. Ti kar vprašaj, I don't mind :). Mogoče pa bom en dan post o tem naredila :).
      Slikam na mizi, na levi je okno, na desni imam to folijo. Ta folija naredi sliko na desni manj temno. Lučka je na nad papirjem, torej sveti navzdol.
      Te žarnice se dobijo skoraj povsod, tudi v Sparu, moje so iz Elektronabave (v NM), samo glej da je cool daylight in ne warm.
      Lučka je navadna za na mizo ali pri postelji za 20€ iz Merkurja, se pa pripne. Nič profesionalnega, vse doma spacano :D.
      S fotoaparatom te bom tudi razočarala, ker uporabljam moj Samsung Galaxy SII :) Za podstavek uporabim pa kakšno prazno škatlo.
      Pa hvala za pohvale :D.

  6. The first thing I always add is my Sweet Baby by Donna Nail Whitening Soak! She hasn't made this in a while since she can't get all of the ingredients for it, but hopefully she gets the chance to bring it back since it's a must-have.Naturasil Natural Nail Fungus
