For now let's get to the cuticle balm. If you aren't sure what a cuticle balm is, let me explain. It is basically cuticle oil hardened into a thick almost was like consistency which will "melt" instantly upon contact with your skin. It is not a hand cream. Typically you will find cuticle balms in tiny metal containers. Evil Shades cuticle balm comes in a generous no frills 2 oz container.
This isn't closed all the way. It seals shut evenly. I just placed the cap on top so I could hurry up and use it after taking the picture. :)
You can see the cuticle balm here. Can I just say it smells amazing! I can't quite place the smell. It is sweet smelling but not sickeningly so. It is very light and pretty.
I tend to use the top side of a nail to scoop my balms. I also tend to use them at night and after rubbing them into my cuticles, I spread them across the rest of my hands. It is so rich in oils it looks like it will be great for dry winter hands.
Edited to add: When I woke up this morning my hands were still extremly soft and they still had a hint of the scent of the balm. Yum! I couldn't resist re-applying.
