Revlon Nail Brightner and Cuticle Softener Review

Last month Revlon generously sent us some products to review, I have 2 products from their nail treatment line to share with you all today.

Revlon Nail Brightener
The name of this product is a little misleading. I guess what I was expecting was a nail whitening product, what we have here is a brightening product. Instructions on the bottle recommend to use this product alone or as a base coat. From afar the polish is milky white in colour but a closer view shows a burple micro-shimmer, on the nail it gives off a sheer pearly finish. The brightener did not whiten my nails or remove stains but I found the glowy effect of the burple shimmer definitely helped my nails look more naturally refined and shiny. I can see myself using this polish for days when I want a demure look to my nails. I don't know how often I'd use this products as a base coat because I felt the burple tint was actually quite strong when on my nails.

Revlon Cuticle Softener
At first glance I thought this was a polish but upon closer inspection it turned out to be a cuticle softening product. Unlike many cuticle care products out there this was a blue tinted gel with little micro beads that dissolved once massaged into you skin. I liked the frosted glass bottle and absolutely loved the smell. I thought it smelled like lychee and the scent lasts after the gel is absorbed into the skin. A little product goes a long way, I thought the gel was absorbed quickly but left slightly tacky film where it was applied. The skin around my nails did feel softer but I haven't tested the products over a long period of time yet. I think this product will work well with individuals who dislike the oily feeling of traditional cuticle oils. Personally, I didn't love or hate this product but is something I can see myself using in a pinch.

The little beads in the cuticle softener reminded me of that 90's drink, Orbitz...does anyone else remember these?

    1. I felt compelled to google the word burple and burple was actually a drink from the 80's/90s! so weird!


  2. OMG thank you for posting about those Orbitz drinks!!! My little brother & I were talking about them a couple months ago, and sorta wondering if we were going crazy, or had just *imagined* our parents buying them for us as a treat if we were good at the grocery store... I'm totally sharing this photo with him! :-D Thank you!! :-D
