Opulentia Organics Super Nail Nourisher vs Sally Hansen Healthy Cuticles Now


I tried the Sally Hansen Healthy Cuticles Now back in July 2012 and I found that it was very effective but pricy (interestingly it's exactly the same price two years later!). The 100 ml price would be £51.74. Now the Opulentia Organics Super Nail Nourisher costs nearly twice as much (£99.90) so how would it compare.

 

Okay so how to test them: the left hand will get the Opulentia and the right will get the Sally Hansen. Which will be worth the price? (or will both be considered too expensive!).

You can find details of the Opulentia here:

Clipboard01

and the Sally Hansen here:


Week 1

Left and right

Okay so other than commenting one my photographic skills (you try taking pictures of your own hands!) you really can't see any difference between my left thumb - Opulentia - and my right thumb - Sally Hansen - and that's exactly what happened after one week.

I like both of them which surprised me slightly as at first glance I wasn't taken by the Opulentia as it seemed too thick to me. Now it has been about 30 degrees inside where I am at the moment so maybe this melted the Super Nail Nourisher because it was nearly liquid when I applied it. It smells very nice (basically a light lemon scent) and it isn't greasy which is what I thought it would be. The Healthy Cuticles Now I've used before and again it was probably effected by the heat but even in normal conditions it's a light cream texture rather than waxy. It also has a nice scent but it's much lighter and less distinct.

Both seems to work well enough but so far my nails still seem dry but I do think both my nails and nail beds will improve over the month.


Onto week 2 and, hopefully, visible improvement or at least better pictures!

Left and right 2

 Week two and the basic result is that I still can't take a decent photo on my own fingers!

To be fair I think you can see that despite the ridges in my nails (no longer do I buff them out as it makes the nail too fragile) both of them are a bit better but I would say that the Sally Hansen right nail is edging ahead. 


Week 3 and I finally manged to take a picture of both at the same time!

Okay I think I can see some differences this week; the Opulentia left nail seems to be better than the Sally Hansen right one to me. When I study them closely I think that the cuticle is better on the left which is a change to last week.

Week3

 The Opulentia will probably only last for one more week so that'll be the send of this blog and in all honestly I already know that how ever good it is the Opulentia is just too pricey for the impact.


 

Week 4

As the temperature lowers I'm beginning to discover the gritty texture that they warn you about int the Opulentia. It's certainly off putting but as they say it doesn't actually change anything.

Left and right 3

Okay this is another of my not too in focus pictures but overall you really can't see much difference this week between the two. I really can't see anything when I look and after four weeks I'm willing to say that overall they two are as good as each other. I basically prefer the Sally Hansen because it seems to help me with my dry cuticles more than the Opulentia but in reality they're both very good but both a bit pricy.


So which do I recommend? Either is good if you want to pay for them but for me I'd go for the Sally Hansen: it's a bit cheaper and is better for my very dry nails.

Opulentia Organics Super Nail Nourisher

20140702 170842

I was excited to be accepted for this trial as on a daily basis my hands and nails suffer all manner of abuse. I am a keen gardener and crafts person so my past times do not tend to be sympathetic to my nails or hands. My nails are generally prone to dryness and brittleness so I was keen to put this product to the test.

When the nourisher arrived I loved the quirky little tin. It is a robust screw top silver tin that is perfect for a hand bag or make-up case. Even if you are a little over zealous in tightening lids on your products this lid is very easy to open, even with greasy hands due to its cleverly designed ridged grip. Upon opening the tin for the first time I noted that the product was of a balm consistency and opaque golden yellow in colour. From the size of the tin you could immediately see that there was a generous amount of product in the tin.

20140702 170924

To apply I only needed a light touch of balm (less than a pea size) for one hand. Upon contact with the heat of your skin the balm immediately melts into a luxurious oil that goes a remarkably long way. So much so, all five fingers on one hand were treated equally with product from just the smallest touch.

The consistency of the balm/ oil is such that it allows a beautiful and beneficial massage into the nails. You should be careful not to over dispense your product as not only does it lead to unnecessary wastage but you will find that your hands are covered to the point of stickiness. Less is more with this highly concentrated balm.

It is suggested that you only use the product at night only. I completely agree with this instruction as after initial application it does take some time for your nails to absorb the product fully. Remember your nails do not absorb products as easily as you skin so you need to accept a little stickiness at first!

Another important tip is to ensure that this little tin is stored in a cool dry place. In the warm weather or sunlight the balm quickly turns to oil which could be disastrous when opening the tin! This small issue only gives credit to the product as proof that no nasties are added to keep it in a solid state.

20140702 171003

The balm has a beautiful citrus lemon fragrance that makes application pleasurable and addictive. Admittedly I have been prone to sneaking a few extra applications during the day. After just one application I noted that the dryness around my nail beds and cuticles was completely gone and the benefit is long lasting. My nails have increased their growth rate phenomenally and they are generally better condition than they have been for a very long time. The balm softens the cuticles beautifully and gives an overall delicate polished look to the nails.

As I like to experiment with my products I have also been applying the balm to my hands as a treatment application before my hand cream. This has had fantastic results for me and in combination my hands are looking much smoother and nourished than just using my hand cream alone. Not stopping there I have also used the balm for my toe nails which have benefitted from the same results.

20140702 171206

This balm may be small but it is mighty! The old adage “some of the best things come in small packages” certainly describes this product. Packed with so many natural oils, waxes and butters it is a highly concentrated product. I have been using this several times a day for over two weeks and I am halfway down the tin. The value for money is fantastic! The balm offers rapid and noticeable results and if you are looking for a nail treatment that won’t break your budget then this is certainly the one to try! A real SOS product.
