Recently I picked up Essence Honey Care Smoothing Nail and Cuticle Scrub, and a scrub is not complete without a mask. So, I picked up the nail mask from the same range. Nail scrubs and masks are new to me. I was super excited to see these tiny pots from Essence and I picked them up because these were so cute. So, let’s read on to know more about Essence Honey Care Regenerating Nail and Cuticle Mask.

My Experience with Essence Honey Care Regenerating Nail and Cuticle Mask:
The regenerating mask comes in a transparent plastic pot with an aluminium cap. The screw on cap, even though closes tightly, is very fragile and can easily get dents. The pot is travel-friendly; considering the small size, you can easily toss it in a bag or purse for your travel. You can see the quantity of the product through the transparent packaging.
All the necessary information is there on the pot. The mask is honey-like in color and smells pleasant. The mask is thick in texture and has a very creamy consistency. It has a high viscosity and needs to be washed off. The mask has to sit for 2-3 minutes but it doesn’t get absorbed by the skin.
It has to be washed or wiped off after 2-3 minutes. Once washed, the skin is extremely smooth and soft. The area near the nails is very supple and nails look very healthy and hydrated. Just like face and hair masks, nail masks are intended for regenerating the cells and providing intense nourishment.
The mask helps my peeling nails to look very healthy and adds a soft pink glow to my nails. The mask nourishes the cuticles and softens them. It helps to push the cuticles and creates a perfect base for nail polishes. It does add a greasy effect on the nails and has to be washed off. The mask does soften the nails and can be perfect for filing or shaping the nails.
The mask does moisturise the nails and the area around, but the downside is that when washed it doesn’t hold the moisture and washes off. Moisturization is needed again to keep the skin soft and hydrated. Overall it is a good product and one of the kinds available in the market. The tub is not sealed, and the mask needs a lot of work of washing and waiting. Thus, it might not be a great on-the-go product.
So, summing up:
Pros of Essence Honey Care Regenerating Nail and Cuticle Mask:
• Makes skin smooth and soft.
• Makes the nails soft and supple.
• Adds a healthy glow to the nails.
• Hydrates and moisturises the nails.
• Makes cuticles soft and easy to push.
• Over the time, heals peeled and brittle nails.
• Pleasant fragrance.
Cons of Essence Honey Care Regenerating Nail and Cuticle Mask:
• Takes time.
• Has to be washed off.
• Not sealed.
• The cap can be dented easily.
IMBB Rating: 3.5/5
Would I Recommend/Repurchase Essence Honey Care Regenerating Nail and Cuticle Mask?
If you have time and are willing to experiment, this is a good buy. But, I prefer nail sheet masks over such creamy ones.
