Product Review: Revitanail Cuticle Remover Gel

I've always been a fan of Revitanail as their products always do what they claim they will do, and loving the newly launched Conditioning Remover Wipes and Precision Corrector, I was very excited when I was asked to trial the Cuticle Remover Gel. Here are my thoughts,

What They Say:
"Dry, overgrown or unruly cuticles can detract from even the most expertly performed manicure or pedicure. Get professional results from your at-home manicures and pedicures with Revitanail® Cuticle Remover Gel".

RRP: $14.95 (30ml) – Available from Priceline, Department Stores and select chemists

What I Say:
Too many applications of nail polish and subsequent uses of nail polish remover that dries out the cuticles, and forgetting to use nail pol and not pushing my cuticles back, often leaves them looking dry and overgrown, which is such a shame as it completely ruins the look of a nice nail polish.

The Revitanail Cuticle Remover gel contains Sodium Hydroxide to lightly and gently (you won’t feel it) dissolve the unsightly cuticle build up as well as green tea extract and aloe vera to soften and moisturise the delicate cuticles, allowing you to push it back the cuticles, leaving you with a perfectly groomed nail bed.  

The Cuticle Remover Gel is so easy to use as it comes in a tube with a thin applicator tip for a fuss-free and precise application, which means it also easy to get just the right amount of gel, without wasting any as well.

You apply a small amount of the clear gel onto excess cuticles and wait for 4-5 minutes. Do not leave on for longer than eight minutes. While the gel is still on your nails, gently push the cuticles back with the flat end of cuticle stick. This is very easy to do, and the clear gel turns a milky white colour as the dead cuticles dissolve. Once all the cuticles are pushed back wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water.

The directions on the tube say ‘wait 4-5 minutes – do not leave on for longer than 8 minutes’, while on the box the tube came in, it says to ‘wait 1-2 minutes – do not leave on for longer than 10 minutes”. This conflicting information is a little confusing, but I found that 1-2 minutes is just not enough, while if the gel is left on for the 4-5 minutes, the cuticles are easy to push back. I have never left it on for more than 8 minutes so I’m not sure what happens if you do!

The gel is very concentrated so you only need a little bit, and consequently the 30ml tube will last you a long time, and consequently making the $14.95 price a reasonable price.

All in all, this is a fantastic product that I wish I had discovered earlier – no more dried out cuticles, this stuff really works. The Cuticle Remover gel ensures optimum cuticle health making your nails looks so much nicer and healthier, with or without nail polish. Of course it also helps make it so much easier to apply nail polish and more importantly makes your manicure look so much more professional!

  3. As much as this is a product I should use, I see it sitting in my cupboard collecting dust because I'd often neglect.
