This $9 Cuticle Oil Is the Single Best Beauty Buy on Amazon

Take it from me (and 50,000 five-star reviews).🌟

Amazon's beauty department (like Gretchen Weiner's hair!) is full of secrets. My latest and greatest discovery: The Cuccio Cuticle Oil, a nourishing nail oil that I—and about 48,832 five-star reviewers—are obsessed with for healing damaged cuticles and split nails. Also, she's very cute.

I didn't stumble upon this miracle worker overnight, though. I've dealt with brittle nails for years (hi, stress)—and winter's cold temps and the current state of over-washing my hands hasn't helped one bit. I've tried all the best cuticle oils in search of the one. O.P.I. Avoplex? My first love (now reformulated). CND Solar Oil? An old desk companion. Olive & June Cuticle Serum? Great for precision. But as much as these products helped me deal with my picked-at cuticles and split tips, none have made a lasting difference in my nail care routine as much as the Cuccio Cuticle Oil. 

So rough and dry! Send help.

I decided to add this product to cart after combing through thousands of rave reviews backing the hype. “Performs miracles,” one reformed nail biter said. “The smell relaxes me,” someone else wrote. A skeptical mo ther with brittle nails admitted to being “wonderfully surprised” after seeing improvements in nail health after only a few days. Even people who pick their cuticles raw agreed this oil has magical healing powers. 

Post-application—you can definitely see the difference.

What makes this cuticle oil so effective is that it contains a mix of nourishing, natural ingredients like safflower oil, vitamin E, milk, and honey. It smells soft and sweet, like a fragrant orchid. The oil comes out in thick blobs via a dropper, and I really like the applicator because it gives me full control over how much product I'm using. The oil itself dries up in less than a minute, leaving no grease stains behind—just soft, moisturized nail beds. I use the product daily, usually after washing hands or doing dishes, and before any hand cream. If I'm giving myself a mani, I'll smooth a few drops on my cuticles before applying nail polish. Any excess I just rub between my fingers. 

I tend to get by with a single drop per hand even though the instructions recommend a drop per finger. At the rate with which I use it, I wouldn't be surprised if this oil lasted me two full years. (Right now I'm three months in and hardly put a dent in the bottle.) 

Happy cuticles!

Because a little goes such a long way, the Cuccio Cuticle Oil basically pays for itself. It's also on sale right now for $9, making it cheaper than similar products on the market. You may not need another addition to your at-home manicure kit, but considering all the sanitizing we've been doing, our nails could definitely use some extra TLC. Take it from a self-professed cuticle picker: few get the job done quite like Cuccio.
