ELF Nourishing Cuticle Pen Review


The ELF Nourishing Cuticle pen promises cuticle relief from avocado and almond oils. At just $1, is it worth a try?


The Nourishing Cuticle Pen moisturizes cuticles effectively and the quick dry formula allows for a no mess application. Fortified with Vitamins E, A, C, Pro-Vitamin B5 and Aloe, this fast-acting complex deeply hydrates, nourishes and seals in moisture. The key ingredients Avocado and Almond Oils help to condition nails and cuticles for improved appearance. The result is softer, easy to manage cuticles and healthy hydrated nails.


Basically, this is designed like a felt tip marker. The design is incredibly handy, and the product itself is very lightweight. As far as performance goes, I like keeping this in my purse for when I want to quickly touch up my cuticles. Now that it’s getting colder, my hands are more dry and need even more care than usual. I don’t like to carry something messy like a bottle of cuticle oil in my purse. The ELF pen dispenses the perfect amount to apply and go until I can get home to a heavy duty oil. It definitely makes me feel less self-conscious about my dry cuticles to apply this pen, and it helps me avoid the urge to pick at them.

You do need to be careful with the tip; I pushed mine in upon first use and it went right down inside of the tube. I pulled it out with tweezers and haven’t had any problems since.

This pen is only $1 and definitely worth it if you need a quick nail touch up while you’re out and about.
