One thing’s for sure: Julep knows nails. Check out their chip-resistant, formaldehyde-free line of JULEP™ Nail Colors.

Birchbox Breakdown

Nothing looks more chic than a gleaming mani—and unfortunately, nothing says sloppy like a broken nail (or two). All too often, the latter used to be our fate within days of leaving the salon—until we discovered this cuticle oil from the hand experts over at JULEP™. A Beauty Insiders' Choice Award winner, this all-natural blend of essential oils keeps nails shipshape long enough for you to get bored of your lacquer shade.

How it Works

Formulated with six essential oils, including almond, jojoba, and lavender, the formula softens cuticles so they’re easy to prune and push back. It also has vitamin E to strengthen nails, and a rollerball applicator that makes it easy to nourish nails on the go. What you won’t find: chemicals of any kind.

How to Use

It’s best to apply this formula right after painting your nails (once your polish is dry, of course). That will give you a head start on preventing snags and wayward cuticles. Then, use it daily to keep nails and skin healthy.

Simmondsia hinensis (jojoba) seed oil, prunus amygdalus dulcis (sweet almond) Oil, ricinus communis (castor) seed oil, aniba rosaeodora (rosewood) wood oil, tocopheryl acetate (vitamin E), lavandula augustifolio (lavender) oil, cananga odorata (ylang ylang) oil.

Pretty good!
Purchased

While I can't say this product works wonders, it does moisturizer nicely, absorb well and leave a nice fresh scent on my hands. I use nightly before bed and it helps keeps my cuticles in check during dry, winter months.
One bottle lasts a long time so very appropriately priced.

Manicures last longer!

I get very dry cuticles because I wash my hands a lot. And my manicures don't last as long as they should because of this. So when I started using this cuticle oil I noticed hoe much nicer my cuticles look and I love the fact that my manicure now looks better and lasts longer!! The only thing is it takes a while to soak in so you're stuck for a few minutes while that's happening.

CEW Box

Love this. it really makes your cuticles moisurized. It is an easy roll on tube that makes application easy and Julep is known for being free of harmful ingredients so I am sure this is all natural which is a big bonus!

Not impressed.
Purchased

It feels nice and smells good, but my cuticles are in bad shape, and this did not make them any better, even after continued use. Maybe it would work for people who have normal/decent cuticles to begin with, but it didn't do anything for me.

Mild Scent + easy to use roll on tip
Purchased

Talk about a time saver! I LOVE the roll on tip with this product. Typically applying an oil is a hugh hassle and I find it hard to keep up this beauty routine before bed but not anymore! I highly recommend this product... easy to use, very little mess, perfect size for your purse and it doesn't leak!

Nice little product
Purchased

THis is a great little product. Carry it around with you in your bag and use whenever you have a moment It's absorbed quickly and I've noticed my nails growing at a faster rate. Not sure if that's what it's supposed to do but it's doing something good for my nails :)

not a fan
Purchased

I thought this would be a good idea, but it does not seem to apply enough without really going over the cuticles several times.
