Apothaka’s SOS Recovery: Nail & Cuticle Oil had been on my wish list for while as the reviews across social media certainly made this sound like the product for me. As someone who has a love/hate relationship with hand care products, I was praying that this might just be the one to solve all my nail care issues.
Apothaka is a vegan friendly and cruelty-free brand who pride themselves on creating environmentally conscious products that are all uniquely formulated by Natasha, the lovely lady behind the brand. Natasha has a no-nonsense attitude when it comes to skincare, presenting clean beauty products without scaremongering about the ingredients we should avoid – instead focusing on the benefits of the ingredients that make up her stunning skincare range.
It is no surprise that Apothaka’s SOS Recovery: Nail & Cuticle Oil is slowly becoming a cult favourite, as the glowing online reviews, Beauty Shortlist Award and appearance in glossy magazines has made it a bestseller in its own right.
SOS Recovery: Nail & Cuticle Oil comes in a roller ball container made from UV-glass to maintain the freshness and quality of the oil itself, while also making application incredibly easy and hassle-free. The scent is stunning, with an intense aroma of refreshing lemon and subtle notes of lavender coming through as you work the oil into the nails. The formula itself is where the true magic happens, featuring nail-loving oils such as jojoba, macademia, sunflower and grapeseed alongside Vitamin E and three essential oils, provides a lightweight nail and cuticle oil which absorbs beautifully into the skin leaving behind no greasy residue at all. I’ve been using this for a while now and have to say that my nails and cuticles look the best they have done in some time. My cuticles look nourished, lack any dry skin and are tighter to the actual nail itself. My nails are no longer brittle, dry and peeling but instead are stronger, smoother and generally look and feel much healthier.
The oil is so good, my Mum has taken possession of mine and cannot stop raving about the amazing results we’ve both experienced in such a short space of time. She was thrilled to receive her own oil for her Birthday, especially as it came in a beautiful gift set sold seperately by Apothaka which recently featured in my Mother’s Day Gift Guide. I cannot wait to continue using this gorgeous product as i’m sure that the results will only get better over time. After the incredible experience with SOS Recovery: Nail & Cuticle Oil, I’m excited to explore the rest of the Apothaka range which features a range of products to suit every skin type.
