L’Occitane Cuticle Oil

L’Occitane products seem so rich to me. When I realized I needed a cuticle oil, I dropped this one in my online Sephora cart. It was $20, not cheap but not terribly expensive either, and it got good reviews.


It comes in a nifty squeeze tube with a brush applicator. The bristles get drenched with oil and you can brush it on your nails and cuticles.

I typically use this at night just before I put on my socks (I keep a worn pair to wear around the house). The next morning, I inspect my feet and the cuticle skin looks much smoother. My nails look more moisturized and not dry anymore.

I’m using this up for sure. Would I repurchase? I don’t know….. $20 is a lot of money to spend on cuticle oil. I think I’ll take the advice of a manicurist I spoke to and try coconut oil.

Is there a cuticle oil you love and would recommend?

  1. I do like the formula but I agree that it’s expensive and I also think there are cheaper alternatives out there that work just as well.

  2. I use a generic apricot ne from our drugstore, DM. It is by Balea, and to me it does the job very well, for a fraction of the price. LUSH does a nice one too, but I never repurchased, as it was more expensive.

    Coconut oil…and if you need heavy duty then castor oil 🙂 you are right it is pricey for a cuticle oil but then it is L’occitane

  4. I’ll take an afternoon/evening, and apply whatever moisturizing lotion I have on hand, layer after layer gets sucked into my dry nails and cuticles. Usually, after 3 rounds, both nails and cuticles are looking better. I have coconut oil…will have to give that a shot next time.
