I recently did a nail care shopping and you can find more articles on nail care products soon. I have been trying to grow my nails soon for a small nail art carnival and I found some great products for nail growth. Today’s review is on Essence Growth Boosting Drops. So, read on to know more

My Experience with Essence Growth boosting drops:
Essence has some great nail products. I have used many of them and extremely happy with the results. When I spotted the new range, I picked many of the nail products. I had to cancel some as they provided the same effect!
The Essence Growth boosting drops comes in a glass bottle similar to a nail polish bottle but comes with a filler cap and the pipette makes it convenient to apply the drops. The drops are thick, gel like and while in color. The smell is strong, kind of like acetone and pungent. But after drying the smell turns sweet like cinnamon. The sweet smell stays for some time on the nails. The drops should be applied on the nail but after some time the drops melts and fall off, so it is better to place each drop, massage and proceed instead of applying all the drops on the nails. The drops have to be massaged gently and let it dry.
The filler can be little tricky at the start. You need to press the filler and place it in the bottle and then when the air goes out the pipette gets filled with drop. Initially, I thought my filler is defective but had no issues with it. The nail drops are claimed to promote nail growth. I have been using it on alternate days for a week but I do not find any difference in the growth but the nails definitely look healthy and shiny. The presence of glycerine moisturizes nails, cuticles and also the surrounding areas. The drops do not repair the nails. I have nail peeling on my thumb and no difference in that too. So overall, it is a good moisturizing drop for the nails for maintaining healthy and shiny nails. I think it takes a lot of time and usage for nail growth. So summing up:
Pros of Essence Growth Boosting Drops:
- Moisturizes the nails.
- Provides a healthy look and glow to the nails.
- Dries fast.
- Sweet smell after drying.
- Travel friendly.
Cons of Essence Growth Boosting Drops:
- No difference in nail growth so it takes a long time.
- Doesn’t repair the nails.
- Yet to see if it strengthens my nails.
- The filler can be tricky at start.
