One of my new favourite products this spring is the Sally Hansen 18K Gold Nail Care Duo!
Did you know that gold is one of the hottest ingredients in beauty, espcially skincare? Because of its remarkable ability to stimulate collagen, boost elasticity and increase firmness, gold is added to many beauty products. So why not add this mircale metal to our nail care routine? Well Sally Hansen has with this new duo and I think it’s a refreshing new product for all of us who are always on the hunt for new and improved nail strengtheners.
With two new products in the Sally Hansen 18K Gold duo – the Gold Hardener can be used on it’s own, or to replace your basecoat. This treatment combines real 18K gold (yes I’m serious), with peptides and amino acids known to promote healthy growth. The treatment forms a shatter-proof shield that protects nails so they can grow longer and stronger.
Applying the Sally Hansen 18K Gold hardener was a dream. I applied two coats, and the formula dried in less than 30 seconds. While the final finish is more matte than glossy, I really liked the feel and look just on its own. I wore it on its own for two days and have since used it as my basecoat under all my last five manis. It’s only been just over a week, but my nails are definitely feeling strong.
The Sally Hansen 18K Gold Cuticle Eraser is also a must-have for healthy-looking cuticles. This treatment renews and softens cuticles instantly while prepping the nails for a flawless manicure. The gel texture combines real gold with natural humectants to trap moisture and nourish cuticles, while quarts particles help remove any excess skin. The result? Cuticles feel moisturised and hydrated.
18K Gold Cuticle Eraser features an applicator tip with a nibbed exfoliator and built-in cuticle pusher—no need for a separate cuticle tool. Use it as needed, gently squeeze tube and massage into cuticles, for an immediately brighter and smoother look.
The price for each product is reasonalbe at $8.99 CAD and $7.99 US. These two products are now available in Canada at Shoppers Drug Mart and mass drug retailers across Canada and at Ulta and other cosmetic retailers in the US.
With such a reasonable price, and such elegant packaging for a drug store brand, I think Sally Hansen has done really well with this new treatment line and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to anyone who spends two minutes on their nails.
Until next time,
