Okay, Lacqueristas, I’ve been AWOL for a little while but I’m back! I’m sure Yamira is like, “What’s taking so long?” Haha
I have an exciting product for you all: Lolita Lacquer’s Cuticle Balm (shown below with Apple Pie Mani Bomb).
As you can see, the balm comes in a cute little round container (more about this later). The ingredients are simple: beeswax, mango butter, sweet almond oil, and vitamin E. The balm doesn’t smell delicious like Yamira’s other products, but it also doesn’t have any perfumes/additives so it’s perfect for those of you who prefer natural products. The mango butter and sweet almond oil do give it a nice subtle scent, though!
The butter is hard until warmed by your skin. It goes on smoothly and feels very light and not oily at all. Afterward, my cuticles felt softer and moisturized for sure! For the best effects, I would suggest using this balm like 3-5 times/day (especially right before bed).
The only complaint I have about this product is that the container is taller instead of wider. It’s hard to get the balm out without accidentally scooping it with my nail. I even tried with my nubbins, and still had the same problem. If your fingers aren’t petite, I’d recommend buying the balm stick instead of the container. You can pick up the balm stick in the Lolita Lacquer Etsy Shop here.
