With the constant application of nail polishes, our nails get damaged with all the chemicals. Even though we have the best nail polishes, over the time, they do cause damage to our nails. There are so many nail care products available in the market and Essence is one brand that has a beautiful range of nail care products. And, today’s review is all about Essence Intense Nourishing Nail Caring Oil. Let’s get into the review.
Price: €1.99 for 8ml
Nails like you’ve just returned from getting a manicure: the caring nail oil pampers your nails with rich ingredients and leaves behind a subtle apricot scent. Gently massaging the nail oil into your nail bed also promotes nail growth.

My Experience with Essence Intense Nourishing Nail Caring Oil:
I have used Essence Nail care products before and they have worked pretty well. I wanted to buy a nail care oil and the only brand I could think of was Essence. They have really inexpensive and have a wide range of good nail care products.
The caring oil comes in a glass bottle and it looks similar to a nail polish bottle. The bottle and the cap are light peach in colour. With the previously available products, the applicator was a sponge similar to a lip gloss, but in the new ones, it has been replaced with a brush and it feels comfortable to apply the product. The product is easy to carry around in your bag and you can nourish your nails whenever they feel dry.
The oil has a very fruity fragrance like a bubble-gum. It is very light and it soaks within few minutes without leaving any greasy residue. The oil softens the cuticles and you can remove it easily during your manicure routine. The nail caring oil nourishes the nails effectively. Using a few nail polishes resulted in brittle and flaky nails and I have been applying this oil for almost 2 weeks now. By doing so, I have noticed that my nails are much stronger and have been growing faster.
The nail caring oil intensively moisturises the nails and the brittleness has reduced considerably. It also makes the surrounding areas softer and smoother. The nail caring oil is a perfect addition to your manicure routine and I am sure it will enhance the appearance of your nails by making it look well groomed and beautiful.
Considering its oily texture, it does take sometime to soak in and even though it is a few minutes, you need to hold your hands to prevent the oil from spreading. The nails look fab when the oil is applied but loses its shine and charm when the oil gets soaked. So, if you are looking for a caring oil that nourishes and protects the nails, this product is a good buy.
