Sally Hansen Cuticle Remover Review!

sally hansen cuticle remover

Sally Hansen Instant Cuticle Remover

  •  Dissolves Dry Cuticles in 15 Seconds
  •  Melts away and breaks down excess cuticles in seconds
  •  Smooths and softens cuticles
  • Can also be used to remove stubborn calluses

For cuticles, squeeze a thin strip around cuticles and under nail tips. After 15 seconds begin to gently push back cuticles with a cuticle pusher or manicure stick. Wash away excess immediately and thoroughly with warm, soapy water.
For calluses, apply to callused skin for 1 minute. Wash away excess immediately and thoroughly with warm, soapy water.
Do not leave on longer than 1 minute.
Keep fingers away from eyes during use. Do not use more than twice weekly or on broken or sensitive skin.

Lately, I would keep hearing about this product and how it's a "favorite" among many bloggers. It was one of those products that I was meaning to purchase for some time, and never really got around (or made an attempt) to purchase it. Finally, I decided go purchase it, after a failed attempt of cutting my cuticles using a cuticle nipper. What's really great about this product is the ease of use. It's pretty much a no brainer. It takes less than a minute (more like 5 seconds) to apply the thin gel around your cuticle and then you wait for 15 seconds, push your cuticles back with a cuticle pusher and rinse your fingers. It almost instantly softens the cuticles so they are easy to push back and it peels off, or dissolves the excess cuticles on the nail - which is typically hard to remove otherwise. I've been using it 1-2 times a week and my cuticles are looking so much better. I'll admit it, my cuticles were looking pretty bad. I was debating whether or not to get a professional manicure, just so they can clip my cuticles for me. I'm so happy this has saved me the hassle. It has also helped my nail polish last longer because my polish would always end up chipping or lifting off near my cuticle - because basically, I would be polishing over the excess cuticles on my nail bed on some nails. This is a product I'm going to definitely re-purchase and always have on hand to maintain clean cuticles.  Highly Recommend! Plus, it's only about $4.

What are some of your Nail Care Must-haves?


  1. Great post and this looks like a really good proudct. I would love to try this but I'm not sure the whole Sally Hansen collection is sold in the UK. But your blog is lovely xxx

  2. great review =) I'm gonna try this too-I can usually polish my own nails now with the help of liquid palisades, but the cuticle work is sometimes best left for a professional =) lol

  3. Excellent review! I have terrible cuticles and it causes my nail polish to chip off as well. I hope they have this at my local walgreens!

  4. I'm gonna have to try this, great review :)

  5. I'm going to add this to my holiday shopping list!

    I'm a trained nail tech in the UK and I never use cuticle nippers, only CND Cuticle remover like this. =)

  6. I've heard about this product alot too but have been hesitant because I've always been told by my mother its bad to trim them though I don't know why. I have to admit that I think it makes my nailbed (and nail colour) look uneven/crooked. One of these days I'll get the guts to test it out :P

  7. PBunnieP - trimming isn't good to do to the cuticles, but you don't want to leave them alone either - that's why you want to use something like this that helps soften them up! I use the Sally Hansen Massaging Cuticle Treatment, it's cuticle oil in a pen. Love the stuff!!

  8. I actually bought this on a whim last week, I heard about removers and I too been using it a few times a week. Getting addicted to it. No more cuts for clippers - I just use a cuticle scrapper.

  9. I LOVE this stuff! I even got my hubby to use it and that says a lot lol. I use it on my kids as well and it doesn't irritate their skin. Great post

  10. I've been using this product for months and totally agree with you! It's A-mazing!<3

  11. Love this stuff!

  12. brought this yesterday and I LOVE IT!!!
