Solar Oil is one of our best selling products in the salon so I thought I would take a few minutes to tell you all the benefits of this little miracle in a bottle! This high quality cuticle oil is made by CND (the creators of Shellac) and is made up of Jojoba, Vitamin E, Rice Bran and Sweet Almond Oil.
It is an essential part of any nail maintenance: –
- for naked natural nails – it hydrates, strengthens nails, makes skin soft and supple
- for polished nails – as above but shortens drying time stops smudges and lengthens wear time
- for Shellac or nail enhancements – as above and keeps you nails hydrated, tough, flexible and long lasting keeping the overlay bonded to the nail
pic of my shellac before and after 3 weeks of wear with using solar oil can’t believe how long and strong my nails have grown!!
Applied a few times daily this oil will help even the worst nails become strong and healthy within months. The molecules in solar oil are much smaller than other creams and oil so penetrate deep into you nail (even through shellac or acrylics).
We recommend you to use this oil a few times daily by simply brushing onto the top and underside of nails and massage. Simple. My top tip is to have a bottle on your bedside table and to apply just before bed to let the oils soak in and penetrate overnight, and even if you are busy all day you can spend that 1 minute before bed as it really does make the difference.
Not only is this the best cuticle oil you will ever use but it can also be used for many other things, scarring, cuts burns or dry skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis, on dry lips as a conditioner and my favourite rub into your eyelashes to condition and strengthen them.
It’s no wonder that this really is a “Miracle in a Bottle”
We sell in 2 sizes at the moment

this is great to trial or I always keep one in my handbag/travel bag
15ml for £12.95
generous size will last ages
Hope you found this useful
All this May Elemis are offering a great gift with purchase travel set with the purchase of two full size retail products, one of which has to be skincare.
It contains two of the brand new products by Elemis – Pro Collagen Cleansing Balm and the Pro Radiance Flash Balm, both of which Elemis say are going to be hero products and I can say as an Elemis user for the last 10 years they are 2 of my favourite products already.
Pro Collagen Cleansing Balm – Luxurious Cleanser priced at £39.50 comes with a cleansing cloth, this product smells amazing with 100% natural fragrances of Geranium, Mint, Lavender, Eucalyptus, Orange and Clove, removes make up and can be left on for 10 minutes as a special treatment mask, which is a bonus, two in one product.
Pro Radiance Illuminating Flash Balm – which again is multi use can be used as a quick pick-me-up, light daily moisturiser, radiance booster or a make-up primer. We have had great results from this product, I would recommend to use it alongside pro collagen moisturiser as a beauty balm on top. Kay has used this for one week and we sold out in the salon as her skin looked that good!! she didn’t have to wear a foundation which is amazing! We can wait for this to be back in stock as we all want one now!
They have then added a few classics, Soothing Apricot Toner to accompany the cleanser, can also be used on cotton wool as an eye compress if you are suffering from bags and dark circles (yes please), skin nourishing milk bath which can be used a body lotion, hair condition, after sun and bathing lotion – holiday must have, and the new skin nourishing shower gel to give your skin a bit of luxury when you shower.
Im always a sucker for a free set or travel sizes and this is the best travel set they have brought out in years, perfect travel or gym bag set, and products you will actually use and love.
So the question is, which two products are you going to buy?……….. decisions decisions
We decided we wanted to share our experiences with you, and a more detailed information on our products and treatments, its our first time at this so please be kind 🙂
