Bare Essentials Hand and Nail Brush Review

Bare Essentials Hand and Nail Brush Review

Itโ€™s been long since I have written here ๐Ÿ™ย  main reasons being work (laziness doesnโ€™t count okayyy ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜› )
Although there are many articles in draft mode, I just decided to do this first, simply because I want to. :silly: Okay bak bak khatam, review shuru ๐Ÿ˜€

I got this brush from some random store in Pune because I thought it looked nice and would be fun to use. And I donโ€™t regret one bit of it. Since going on (read spending obnoxious amounts of money on) manicures is not my cup of tea, I do my own TLC at home itself and this has become an integral part of it now. The Bare Essentials Hand and Nail Brush ๐Ÿ™‚

(The brush is in a sad state now because it is old and that means I have been using it regularly so my review should make sense ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜› )

What the company says – This is perhaps the softest nail brush available. Always work away from the cuticle towards nail tip to avoid damage to cuticles. For extra clean nails, brush every day in the bath or shower. This will help shed dead skin cells and stimulate circulation and nail growth.

Price โ€“ Rs 70-90. I have no idea how much I got it for.
This is how the two sides look.

So, basically this has two sides โ€“ one hard (the lesser one) and one soft (the fuller one). The hard side is great for cleaning the underside of nails. It has a gap in between the two rows of bristles so your nail just fits in. The soft part is great for scrubbing the delicate area of fingers. It removes dead cells and also helps to increase blood circulation in that area .Err… this is my observation… When I use this regularly, nails grow faster so that might be due to blood circulation. I use in the shower every alternate day.
As mentioned it is advisable to use cuticle to nail tip direction. I used reverse once and my hands looked pathetic with broken cuticles . ๐Ÿ™

Pros of Bare Essentials Hand and Nail Brush

1. Does its job. You have healthy, clean, human looking hands.
2. Very decently priced
3. The bristles are of good quality, a little shedding yes but only after 3-5 months.
4. Is very handy, no fuss. Just keep in the bathroom shelf and you are sorted.
5. Gives your hands a nice firm massage. It relaxes tired hands.

Cons of Bare Essentials Hand and Nail Brush

The only and the biggest con is that the wood starts cracking after sometime. The bristles too start slipping out through the cracks. I have left it soaking wet sometimes but then its almost impossible to use in the shower and keep it dry at the same time. And you cannot use it dry, it will hurt. So anyways water will have to be used with it.

I absolutely love this thing .Itโ€™s useful, cheap and cute too. ๐Ÿ˜€

Will I Repurchase โ€“ YES!! If I find one, no BE in my city.

Rating โ€“ 4.5/5 (0.5 cut for cracking and shedding but โ€˜itne paise mein itna ich milengaโ€™ ๐Ÿ˜€ )

  2. that’s was a nice and witty review Naina…………I want a nail brush badly now…. :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin:

    1. You can use an old toothbrush for the time being!!! ๐Ÿ˜† ๐Ÿ˜† ๐Ÿ˜† ๐Ÿ˜† ๐Ÿ˜† ๐Ÿ˜† ๐Ÿ˜† ๐Ÿ˜† ๐Ÿ˜† ๐Ÿ˜† ๐Ÿ˜† ๐Ÿ˜† ๐Ÿ˜† ๐Ÿ˜† ๐Ÿ˜† ๐Ÿ˜† ๐Ÿ˜† ๐Ÿ˜†

  3. cali…………………….i wnated to ask you one thing…are potassium permanganate crystals poisonous….like aarohan had bit a packet of those crystals in the morning…..he didn’t ingest it but it stained his two teeth……

    1. ohhh….. :(( No…I dont think it is poisonous because I’ve seen many of my mom’s friends washing vegetables in water mixed with PPM!!So it shouldn’t be poisonous. But yeah,I’d suggest you consult Doctor first!! And :-* to Aarohan!!

      1. I called his doctor up and he also told me ki if he has not swallowed the whole packet then its okay, but if shows any drowsiness or unusual behaviour, then to contact him ๐Ÿ˜ :tremble: :tremble: :tremble:

    2. jomoll … how is aarohan .. all good naa..
      my cousin is a doc, she was on the phone so i asked her she said if he hasnt swallowed toh its okayy … make sure he drinks lots and lots of water or any light fluid like juices or glucose ..
      nothing to worry , he shud be perfectly okay .. you shud go to a doc for mental satisfaction :)) :)) :))
      :puchhi: to aarohan

      1. Don’t keep anything…edible..nonedible..anything anywhere near his hand/feet/head level naaa…normal kids only you should be so careful..this one tho is worse than usual..he is like little monster level…my sister was like this…we had to install shelves and stands on all walls and moved everything from ground level to higher…cos if she could reach it she would destroy it. She won’t eat packed stuff though..she only ate dead flies and spiders :toothygrin:

  4. Cali, Naina, and Rads….he is okay now….actually, he didn’t ingest…and I didn’t let him….I absored all that was there with a clean cotton cloth :tremble:

  5. I don’t know RAds…..I think I will have to empty my entire house this way…he is getting things from the store room… know I can’t leave him alone even for one second…I don’t know from where he finds these things….like when I search….I don’t find but he finds jet mats, nails, potassium permanganate and such stuff from God knows where ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜

    1. I sis was just as bad ๐Ÿ˜ They have x-ray vision and bubblegum-stretch hands to get anything from anywhere ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜
