Mario Badescu Skin Care Products

I'm super excited to share with you some Mario Badescu skin care products! We all love nail polish, nail art, and stamping, but a great mani must be accompanied by healthy cuticles and hands.  This is why you need to make sure to take time to moisturize daily!

This hand cream is ideal for frequent hand washing.   To use, it is recommended to apply as often as needed, especially after hand washing.  For intense hand treatment, it is recommended to be applied liberally and to wear beauty gloves to bed.  

This product is perfect for me as I work in the Veterinary field and I am constantly washing my hands and they are being doused with alcohol and surgical scrubs all day long.  My hands, and especially my cuticles, are very very dry.  It is difficult for me to maintain nice and moisturized hands and cuticles, even though I moisturize throughout the day.  

Elasto-Seamollient Hand Cream is available in 4 oz ($8) and 8 oz ($14) tubs.  When you open the tub there is a very light (but pleasant!) fragrance.  When applying, a small amount seems to go a long way (although their website says for intense treatment to use liberally).  The cream is not greasy like most creams that I have used, and my hands absorb it pretty quickly yet stay moisturized.  So, no applying cream then having to wait a while before touching anything or leaving greasy paw prints all over everything! 

Cuticle Cream
The cuticle cream, to me, is not a 'cream' - it is more of a resin; similar to Bag Balm.  This cuticle cream is made with glycerin and salicylic acid to exfoliate the cuticle build-up, and should be used overnight.  For faster results, it should be used with a hand cream.  For best results it is recommended to be used with beauty gloves over night.

YIKES! These are my nubs before I started using the cuticle cream.  I'm almost embarassed to even post these, haha!  But this is usually what my cuticles look like, and I'm going to blame it on my occupation.  :P

Sorry about the difference in lighting - the pictures were taken at different times of day.  For some reason even though I use a lightbox, I don't get results that I would like.  Hmmm, practice, practice, practice! Anyway , these are after, all NUDE!!!! The ONLY time you will see NUDE nails on NONUDENAILS.COM! haha!  

I loved this cuticle cream.  I used it in conjunction with the Elasto-Seamollient Hand Cream.  I also applied it to the cuticles on my toenails - before bed AND in the morning.  I could definitely tell the next day that my cuticles were softer, and I haven't been needing to apply the oil throughout the day like I was before.  

The Cuticle Cream is available in 0.5 oz tubs for $10.  

Another plus?  These products are NOT TESTED ON ANIMALS and they are made in the good ol' US of A!
