Beauty Road Test: Curel Hand & Cuticle Therapy and Curel Foot Therapy
If you’ve been looking for lotions to save your hands and feet, Curel’s your answer.
Bettys, if you’re like me, you’re constantly using your hands: cleaning, dusting, working out and just plain running around can make your poor mitts look like you’ve crawled through the desert. You, like me, have probably tried so many different hand creams you could probably open your own store.
I don’t know how badly you mistreat your feet. I am brutal with mine. I am constantly wearing extremely high heels and then I walk (a lot) in them. While I like to call my feet, New York City Feet, because I walk constantly, the truth is, I beat them up. And after this weekend’s tennis match, they really hate me. My feat are beyond rough, they’ve got dry, cracked skin (gross, but I’m honest), callus buildup due to shoes (and walking) and would make a Hobbit cry.
Like you, I’ve been hunting for magic potions for my hands and my feet…to no avail. Recently, I was invited to a mani/pedi session overseen by celeb manicurist Skyy Hadley and her team od crack manicurists by Curel.
My life has changed, Okay, okay, I totally get that you think I’m over dramatizing it, but once my hands and feet met the Curel products, they instantly looked and felt better. For REALZ. The formulas don’t wash off, are unscented and rock.
The Curel Hand & Cuticle Therapy ($4.71, drugstore.com), contains Vitamin E, Monoi Oil and soy milk. It’s been tested by a dermatologist for efficacy and safety. It promotes 24 hour hydration (hello!), helps prevent broken nails and isn’t greasy. You can wash your hands and the protective formula doesn’t wash off….nice. Esp, when you’re cleaning your home.
The Curel Foot Therapy ($4.55, drugstore.com) is infused with Shea butter, Vitamin E and coconut milk. The label claims that within two days you’ll notice a difference in your feet: rough, dry cracked skin (eew) will go away. When I tried it, the change was immediate! You can use this day and night. Simply apply it in the morning, let dry, then slip on your favorite shoes. No slippage!
What I like about both Curel products is that relief is just seconds away from application and the price is right! How can you not like an affordable solution to an annoying problem?
