Hi everyone! As promised ages ago, I've finally completed my usage test with the CND RescueRXx Daily Keratin Treatment that I got in my CND Rescue Kit! I tried it for a full week and now I can share my thoughts and the results with you! Hooray! :)
This is a daily nail treatment that has been shown in clinical trials to decrease white spots, decrease splitting and peeling, and increase the condition of nails. It has a number of ingredients that work together to treat your nails and surrounding cuticles and skin: keratin protein, jojoba oil and sweet almond oil. And it smells like cotton candy!
Directions: For best results, apply to bare natural nails twice daily, massaging into the entire nail, nail edge and cuticle. Use for up to 4 weeks for optimal results.
I used this product once a day for one full week, so keep that in mind as we look at the results! :) I used them on naked nails before or after applying polish, and I made sure to apply them all over the nail and cuticle while rubbing it in. Spreading cotton candy oil all over my nails? Hell yeah!
My nails can be so up and down in terms of their health... When I started this test they were in okay shape, but definitely dry and they were breaking about once a week on average which made it difficult to get to the length I prefer. I didn't have any issues with peeling or white spots though which was good.
After a week I did notice some improvement, even though I only used it for a week 1x a day instead of 2x a day for 4 weeks... I'm hopeful that if I continue I'll see even more!
My nails didn't break once the entire time I was doing this test, and as of the time of writing this (a few weeks later) I can say that breakage definitely happens less frequently now. I don't know if it's a coincidence or if it's that I haven't been as rough with my nails, but usually I can't go longer than a week and a half without my nails breaking and it's now been two whole weeks!!
I also stopped using cuticle oil while I was doing this test as I felt this product could make up for that too, and generally my cuticles were in good shape at the end. Not much better than usual, though to be fair I rarely have issues with dry cuticles anyway.
Did I see improvement? Yes I did. :) There is a definite change in the strength of my nails which I'm really pleased with. I didn't see any mind-blowing changes but that might be because I only tried the treatment for a week. Maybe I'll have to do a review update in a few months with a longer trial period..
Also I need to comment one more time on the scent of this... FREAKING COTTON CANDY! SO YUMMY! Haha.
Have you tried CND's RescueRXx Treatment? If so what did you think? :)
