DIOR Abricot Nail Cream Review

I have a confession to make -- I've completely ruined the surface of my nails this year.  ...Twice.  I've used a couple of press-on products that I love, but I didn't remove them properly (both times!  I'm so impatient!).  I've been dealing with super dry, cracked nails since July.  :(  A long time ago, I used the Mary Kay Cuticle Cream to keep my nails moisturized.  I contemplated getting that again, because it's pretty amazing, but when the Sephora VIB sale rolled around I found something else to try.

Enter stage left: Christian Dior Abricot Nail Cream.  Last year, I purchased the Christian Dior Creme de Rose Lip Balm and was very, very impressed.  I still have a little left in the pot, but I'm using it very slowly.  It's a pretty pricey balm, but it makes my lips so moisturized I can justify the price.

When I was looking for a nail cream to try, this Abricot Nail Cream popped up in my Sephora search. I've been using it for a couple weeks (I didn't open it until I recorded my huge Sephora haul), and the results with my nails have been immediate.  You need a teeny tiny smidge of the product for each nail, so this is going to last a long time.  I am keeping the foil on the package, so it won't dry out.

It does not have a strong scent, which I appreciate.  It fully moisturizes my cuticles and nails.  After I apply it, my skin feels a little greasy.  This is the last thing I do before I go to sleep, to avoid getting anything greasy.  When I wake up, my nails and cuticles look perfectly moisturized and healthy again.  Throughout the day, my nails do look dry again.  But, I wash my hands quite a bit.  I can say that each day my nails/cuticles have looked less dry.  So, I know this is working!  Very slowly, I will get my nails back to normal....

Lesson learned, remove nail products properly!  And if you don't, use this!!  i completely recommend this product if you struggle with dry nails and cuticles.  At $27, it's pricey but this will last a long time.  My Dior lip balm has lasted me over a year, and I think this nail cream will last even longer!
