Review - Color4Nails Cuticle Oil and Color4Nails Hydrating Cuticle Away

Hi loves! Today I have a short and sweet (pun intended) review to share with you about 2 new products from Color4Nails. They released both a cuticle oil (in 4 scents) as well as a cuticle softener. Both come in a brush pen and retail for $8.



Curious?

Color4Nails Cuticle Oil comes in 4 scents and 1 unscented version. I received the coconut/kiwi and jasmine/rosehip scents. In addition to those there are a pomegranate/mango scent and lavender scent available too. The pen holds 4.5 ml. of product and has a sticker with the Color4Nails logo as well as the scent. The oil isn't thin so it sits nicely on your cuticles when you apply it. That way I can let it sink in for a bit and then after 5 minutes or so I rub in the rest. It hydrates my cuticles nicely and the scent on the coconut/kiwi version isn't too strong, either. The jasmine/rosehip scent isn't my cup of tea so I only sniffed it and quickly stashed away the pen to gift to someone else.

Color4Nails Hydrating Cuticle Away is a product meant to soften your cuticles so you can scrape away dead skin with an orange wood stick without damaging the cuticle itself. The ingredients are coconut oil and sweet orange essential oil. Because the coconut oil turns solid at temperatures below approximately 25°C, it seems the 2 oils seperate a bit. I'm not sure if this will influence the product as you continue to use it. This comes in the same brush pen as the cuticle oils, but the sticker was way too large so it covered the cap. I had to clip it in order to be able to open and close the brush.

It did soften my skin nicely but I am not sure which ingredient helps the dead skin come loose.. normally there is a chemical included in these kind of products, but I am not an expert here so maybe someone can enlighten me?

Overall conclusion
Both products are quite nice though I wasn't overwhelmed by them. The large label on the Hydrating Cuticle Way annoyed me, at $8 the packaging shouldn't be that messy. One of the oils isn't my preferable scent but the other will definitely be used! The brush pen is my favorite way of using cuticle oils so that's a big yay from me!

  1. I've been testing these out too and I think you summed it up perfectly! I enjoyed the cuticle oils a lot, but you're right the cuticle remover doesn't contain the ingredient (lye) that soaks off dead skin. It can be quite harsh so I think this is a good option for people who want something more gentle.

  2. I'm a cuticle oil lover but I doubt I'll try any of these as the scents don't appeal to me. I don't use cuticle removers, I just gently push them back but I was thinking about tying something on my cindy hand, she's getting really bad and just pushing doesn't always do the trick. I'll still probably go with another brand though. Thank you for your honest opinion.

  3. Mmmh I'd love to try the coconut/kiwi one ! I don't have any nail care products from Color4nails as I'm pretty satisfied with the ones I've been using for years now ! My favorite cuticle oil is the Vanilla one from Nfu Oh.

  4. I am a big fan of lavender scent but oils don't really like my skin, or viceversa. I've only ever found 2 oils that really hydrated my cuticles, otherwise I better use butters.

  5. I loved your honest review!
    I've never tried the brand but I always go for cuticle creams instead anyway.

    The jasmine sounds fantastic but I usually prefer a brush for my cuticle oils. It's just a personal preference. The tubes would be nice for storage, though. Great review

    These sound nice, but indeed, for scraping away dead cuticles, I believe one needs the don't-touch-your-eyes-chemicals ;)

  12. Thanks Em, glad you liked the review! That's what I was confused about as well, with the lye not being mentioned anywhere.

  13. Scent is so important to me in nail care products, if I don't like the scent I can't be bothered to use the product. I think the problem with Cindy hands is that you don't remove polish as much as on your swatch hand. The rubbing motion of polish removal might cause the small bits of dead skin to be scrubbed away already. My cuticles are worse on my Cindy hand as well!

  14. I really liked that scent! But I'm obsessed over 365 Days Of Color/Sunny's Body products so yeah, that's practically all I use, lol!

  15. Hmm, that's something I never heard before! I must say I love using both a balm and oil. I feel using a balm after oil traps the moisture more into the skin.

  16. Which creams are your favorite Mina?

  17. These do have a brush actually! You twist the bottom of the pen and product will flow through the brush on the opposite end.

  18. Do you like droppers better? Funny how everyone has a different preference :).

  19. Lol, sometimes cuticles can be a pain in the ass!

  20. Great to here! I'll definitely use the cuticle oil in the coconut/kiwi scent :).

  21. That's what works best for me! Thanks Lothwen.

  22. I have a doe-foot applicator that I use and love, but the maker isn't in business right now and I can't find a replacement. :(
