6 Harts Healing Calendula Cuticle Oil review (White Chocolate)

*Press sample

Good evening,

Tonight I have a review of 6 Harts Healing Calendula Cuticle Oil in the scent White Chocolate.

I have been using this cuticle oil for about 3 weeks and applying anywhere from once to three times a day. I am also loving the scent of the White Chocolate. It reminds me of a tootsie roll!

The first photo is about a week in. I am so sorry, I forgot to take pictures from the start due to an ill dog.

3 weeks in

As you can see the cuticle oil has made a big difference for me. I would definitely recommend this brand!

Here is what the maker says about her oils:


My Healing Calendula Cuticle Oil is versatile! The unscented version can be used on cuticles, lips, dry spots, or other areas that need a tiny shot of nourishing oil. It contains Apricot Kernel oil, Calendula-infused oil, Jojoba oil, Meadowfoam Seed oil and Tocopherol (Vitamin E).
The container holds 5.9ml, but it is not full as the doe-foot wand needs to fit too!
I can offer you scent-free, man-made fragrances (MM) or a small selection of pure essential oils (EO) to make your cuticle oil even better!


Where to buy: 6 Harts etsy shop
Current scents: White Chocolate, Black Cherry, Honeybee, Lavender, Tea Tree, Orange, Bergamot and of course unscented. ($5.00)
