RMK Nail Care Gel Oil Pen Review: For Dry Rough Cuticles!

RMK make such lovely base products, they really do, I don’t know why their seasonal collections kind of miss the mark a lot – usually because of a schoolboy error like, poor pigmentation. Wow me RMK, I really want you to.

Starting the day with a mini rant, eh?!

So for someone who has dry, unruly cuticles who should know better, I really don’t spend much time taking care of them. It’s boring, I find applying oil to them a waste of time, when I could be doing something more useful like, making a cup of coffee or eating a biscuit.

In a lame attempt to start using an oil on my cuticles more I bought this RMK Nail Care Gel Oil Pen (which I think is from the Summer 2010 collection) from eBay:

This handy pen contains a medium thick gel-oil inside, which doesn’t run everywhere when you apply it and smells gorgeous; of lavender, but nice lavender, not old folks home mouldy lavender.

So much for thinking the pen applicator would make my life easier (ideally I don’t want to touch the oil at all).

Whilst the nib is shaped like a felt tip, it doesn’t really help work anything into the cuticles, you still have to rub the gel in with your fingers.

I guess you can be more precise with where you put it, but that’s about it.

There are a few other problems with this product; the packaging is frosty plastic. Despite only using it a bit and storing it in the extra pocket in my bag, it’s been scratched like crazy – the thing looks so old and damaged now and it’s hardly been used!

I paid about £11 for this, I am guessing the UK retail price would also be around that mark. That’s quite expensive considering you don’t get much (2.3ml) whereas you could buy solar oil and get a lot more for your money.

There’s a note in the leaflet that says this pen will give you 60 applications or two months based on a daily application to both hands at 2pm (ok, I made up the 2pm bit).

But that gives you an idea of how long it will last.

Verdict:

Smells lovely, it is very hydrating but really, extremely poor packaging choice and too little product for the price.
