Blue Cross Cuticle Remover Review


     Today Id like to share with you my thoughts on the Blue Cross Cuticle remover. I picked this up at Sally's quite a while ago and it has remained my favorite out of all the cuticle removers I've tried.




     When using this product you do need to be a little careful. I have heard that people have had a burning feeling if they leave it on their skin for too long. So please test this out on a small area first before diving in. Thankfully I have not had a reaction. But I am careful to only do one hand at a time and I wash everything off in between.

     Blue Cross cuticle remover is a liquid instead of a gel or cream. I have found the best way to apply it is by dipping a Q-tip into the bottle and dabbing it around my nail.  After applying Blue Cross to the entire hand  I go back to the first nail and start pushing the cuticle back gently with a cuticle pusher. 



     Here is a picture of my nail before applying Blue Cross cuticle remover. I intentionally let my cuticle on this finger grow out for about 3 weeks so that you could get a good idea of how well this product works.  I know it's pretty bad, I can tell you it drove me a little nuts to let it get this way.



     And here is the after shot. The cuticle looks a little red but that fades away after a little bit. Especially if you apply some cuticle oil. I hadn't done that in this picture to give you a real look at how Blue Cross works.  I know this isn't a perfect nail, but in my opinion it's 99% better. Now can you see why this is my favorite cuticle removing product? And a little bit goes a long way, so it's definitely worth it's price and then some. I've been using this same bottle for over a year now and have barely made a dent in it.

     Blue Cross Cuticle Remover can be purchased at Sally's Beauty supply either online or in store for $5.99 or $4.99 with a Sally's card.
 
     Have you tried this product out for yourself, if not what is your favorite cuticle remover? Thanks for stopping by and Happy Polishing!

  2. This is the only cuticle remover I use/have used! I use it the same way as you and haven't experienced the burning either but I also wash it off pretty quickly :) I also do it to my boyfriend's nails occasionally and luckily it doesn't burn him either. Actually, I stopped using it for a few months and it seems like my cuticles didn't really grow at all....I don't know if that's weird or not but I still use it every few months just for dead skin removal. I do find if I use it too often my cuticles stay red and irritated longer than I'd like. It also works well for cleaning up cuticle staining!

  3. I've seen a lot of people rave about this but I haven't used it myself. I'll have to see if our version of Sally's carries it.

  4. I thought Id discovered a miracle when I first tried it. Nothing else had ever come close to working as well.

  5. I don't think my boyfriend would let me come near him with it. And he could really use a treatment. My cuticles stay red for longer too if I use this every week. I try do a treatment every other week and that seems to be working well so far. With the colder weather right now I will drop down to once a month so I don't dry out my skin.

  6. I hope you can find it. It really does so a great job.

  7. I haven't ever heard of this! I should totally pick this up for my daughter, her cuticles get so overgrown and she never remembers to gently push them back after her showers.

  8. I've heard such great things about this remover - I'll have to try this :)

  10. Before this I was using a cuticle balm from Sally Hansen. The cuticle eraser + balm. It was working ok but nothing compared to this. I'm bad about remembering to push my cuticles back after I shower too. That's something need to start making a habit of.

  11. I ended up picking this up after reading a few reviews on it. The only negative thing I've ever heard is about the burning sensation some people get.

  12. You're welcome! Do you just push your cuticles back?

    ReplyDelete
  13. Looks like a great cuticle remover. I have one from Sally Hansen but I don't use it too often. I should though.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Yes.I do put Vaseline on my cuticles before I push them back.Then I use argan oil on ny nail bed.

    ReplyDelete
  15. That sounds like a pretty good routine. I'll have to remember that for when I'm in a pinch.

  16. I used to use one from Sally Hansen. It's green and white swirled. Seemed to work ok but I didn't get the results I get with Blue Cross.

  17. Thanks for the review! I think I need to make a trip to Sallys soon. I've heard good things about this cuticle remover.

  18. You're welcome! I've been using this for so long it never crossed my mind to do a review on it, then one day it hit me ahh duh why not so a few posts on my nail care routine. Especially the products that work the best for me.

  19. Oh wow! This looks great! Will definitely pop by my Sallys!

  20. I was seriously impressed the first time I used this.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Yes! This stuff is amazing! I've used Julep's remover which is great, but I will always go back to Blue Cross :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. I love that it works so well, especially for how little you need to use. At the rate Im going my bottle will last me another 10 years if not more.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I just bought my first bottle of this and it's fantastic. The first time I used it, I spilled some, and it actually made the tips of my fingers go numb. :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Cool! I'll look around for some shop that sells it over here!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Oh no. Hopefully it doesn't do that every time you use it. I know a lot of people say they expect a gel instead of liquid.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I hope you can find it or at least something that works just as well!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I appreciate you growing out your cuticle for 3 weeks in the name of science! Great results. I'm almost out of the the Sally Hansen Insta-Gel....

    ReplyDelete
  28. Wow this stuff works so well! I normally use Vanish by Julep but this looks like it does a bang up job!

    ReplyDelete
  29. thank you for appreciating my sacrifice. lol I haven't tried the Insta-Gel one but have heard a lot of people like it. I don't know if I can ever stray away from my Blue Cross though.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I haven't even heard of that one, but then again when it comes to Julep I tend to turn the other way. There has ben too much controversy with that company for me to want to even try one of their products.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I like this stuff a lot! I put it in an empty polish bottle to apply :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. I love my Blue Cross! After reading so many good reviews about it I finally found an Ebay seller and got a small bottle together with a friend. I liked it so much that when another friend went to US for her honeymoon I asked her for the big bottle. Well in the end she wanted half of it, too, so I ended up with two halves but those will go a long way as you said!

    ReplyDelete
  33. That sounds like a much better way than using a Q-tip like I do. I'll have to see if I can come up with an empty bottle. Great tip!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I swear at the rate I'm going Ill be able to pass my bottle down to my daughter. Ok that might be a stretch but I you never know. lol

    ReplyDelete
  35. I'll be honest, I rarely remember to use cuticle remover. I used it today but it's probably been a couple months since the last time. But maybe I'll have to try this out when I run out of my Sally Hansen one.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I have been really bad about that in the past. I told myself earlier this year that I would get better about remembering to use it. Otherwise my cuticles end up looking ragged and my pictures suffer.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Blue Cross is my favorite as well! I have some in an empty polish bottle and brush it on my cuticle with a brush. It lasts forever and works wonderfully!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I used the Sally Hansen cuticle remover for so long and then I decided to try this. I love them both but this one wins, hands-down. It's so quick! Great review!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I've heard this was really good! I should try it out soon!

    ReplyDelete
  40. I need to find an empty polish bottle to put some of mine in I think. That would be so much easier than dipping a q-tip in.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I have a balm from Sally Hansen that I will use sometimes in the winter in hopes that it wont dry my skin out as much. But it doesn't compare to my Blue Cross.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Everyone I know who tries it loves it!
