I never feel completely dressed without manicured nails. Even if I don't have polish on, nicely filed nails with neat cuticles make me feel more elegant and pulled together. I'm sure you feel the same!

Whether you don't have time to get a salon mani or have cut regular manicures out of your budget, Carol's Daughter Lemon Ginger Mint Manicure in a Jar is a decadent, at-home treat for your hands and nails.

How Does the Product Work?

Carol's Daughter Lemon Ginger Mint Manicure in a Jar is actually a moisturizing scrub. It has sea salt to remove dead skin and sweet almond oil and shea butter to moisturize dry hands. It's petroleum and paraben free.

How Do I Use the Product?

Massage the scrub gently on to damp hands. I always like to pay close attention to the sides of my nail beds and cuticles where my skin tends to be the driest. Rinse off with warm water.

If you can, try to talk your roomie or hubby into giving you a hand massage with the scrub for an extra treat.

If you plan on painting your nails immediately afterwards, make sure all the product is completely removed from your nails. The oil in it can make polish adhere poorly.

How Did the Product Perform?

My hands were soft and silky, just as if I had gone to a spa or salon for my mani. It smells heavenly, too!

Is the Product Right for Me?

If you're someone who cares about her hands and nails (and if you're not, I urge you try. Second to our eyes, our hands tell people who we are and how old we are), you'll love this product. It's an easy, inexpensive way to treat yourself to a salon-worthy mani at home.
