Nails ~ Dior Abricot Fortifying Cream Revies ~ My Nail Journey

Dior Creme Abricot Fortifying Cream for NailsI've had this cream on my wishlist for quite sometime now ever since i've read reviews about it.  Some of the things that I read were amazing, like you never have to trim your cuticles ever again once you start using it.  Well, this alone had me curious so on my next trip to Macy's I decided to stop by the Dior counter and get the scoop.  I asked the SA what she thought of it, she said she loved it would definitely recommend it for problem cuticles if I had any.  My first impressions was that I really liked the smell and the thick creamy texture of it.  I began rubbing it into my cuticles to see how it applies, I discovered that a little goes a long way.  I have very dry cuticles so I wasn't expecting anything drastic to happen at the moment but I decided to purchase it because of the reviews.

My Review:
I am in love with this cream. Prior to buying this I was using Kiehl's Imperiale Moisturizing Cuticle Treatment which I really loved, but I used it all up and I was ready to try something different.  I began using the Abricot cream twice daily in the mornings and at night because my cuticles were in less than stellar condition.   I also have really dry skin underneath a few of my nails due to damaged nail beds.  These are the nails that I really wanted to target in hopes that they would improve over time.

I'm quite pleased with the results so far.  Ive been using the cream for almost a week now and I couldn't wait to tell you about my experience. The buildup of dry skin that I was experiencing around my cuticles and underneath my nail beds has made a drastic improvement.  I don't know if you're familiar with how the nails look when the nail bed has been damaged but what happens is the nails totally lift away from the nail bed. The skin that builds up underneath is very hard and dry and unpleasant to look at.  This is a result of fungus getting underneath the acrylic and damaging the nail beds, that's why it's important to get a new set of acrylic once a month. I was a Flight Attendant and away on very long international trips, my nails would break and I wasn't able to get them done until I returned.  But there is hope!  Laser therapy has been proven to heal damaged toenails and now it's been proven to heal fingernails as well.  I checked it out and the cost is $199 per hand so i'm saving to have it done. 

Damaged Nail Beds

 I will definitely keep buying this cream and I do recommend it to anyone that has problems with dryness due to damaged nail beds.  I'm looking forward to sharing my nail journey progress with you along with photos once I began the nail laser therapy.
