The Pen is Mightier...

Ever come in from the cold, pull your hand out of your glove and realize that despite your best efforts, the weather has made a mess of your manicure? I'm talking about the dry, cracked cuticles that seem to appear just when the cold winds start blowing in autumn. Unless you're at the nail salon every other day, I'm sure you've been victim to this.

But there is a solution, and better yet, a solution that you can take with you. Sephora Cuticle Care Pen is, well, the exact size and shape of a pen, and it's filled with a gel/oil specially formulated for those pesky cuticles. Twist the applicator and the brush tip dispenses just enough, so it goes where it's supposed to, and not all over your hands.

Dr. Hauschka's Neem Nail Oil Pen is also a handy little find. It's a bit bigger than the Sephora version, but has an even better mess-proof felt tip applicator, and Neem has antibacterial and antifungal properties for all you germophobes out there (like me).
