Diamond Cosmetics: Almond Cuticle Oil with Ginseng Extract

Hello ladies,

I have been relying on Almond Cuticle Oil with Ginseng Extract by Diamond Cosmetics to nourish my nails and cuticles. This treatment has been so helpful in replenishing moisture and adding strength to my nails after the winter season.

I brush on Almond Cuticle Oil every night before bed. I apply the oil to the skin around my nails as well as to the underside of each nail. Much of nail related weakness and breakage is caused by dryness. Adding a small amount of cuticle oil to the underside of the nail can help maintain flexibility and strength.

Spring is an essential time to focus on the health of nails and cuticles. The damage caused from winter dryness will show now as nails are growing out. Nails are often more vulnerable to breakage in the Spring. Weather shifts bring changes in the moisture in the air. These subtle variations lead nails to expand and contract slightly, ultimately weakening them. Proper hydration with cuticle oil can help protect your nails and be an essential part of maintaining length.

This product has a light scent that reminds me of drinking green tea with ginseng. The almond and sunflower oils add a mingling sweetness to the herbal undertone.

I am impressed by how quickly Almond Cuticle Oil absorbs into the skin. While I use it only as a nighttime treatment, those ladies who are looking to heal damaged cuticles could apply it throughout the day.

Ingredients: Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Aesculus Hippocastanum (Horse Chestnut) Seed Extract, Fragrance, Commiphora Myrrha Extract, Adansonia Digitata Seed Oil, Panax Ginseng Root Extract, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Panthenyl Triacetate, Tocopherol, Hexyl Cinnamal, Plankton Extract, Benzyl Benzoate, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Dimethyl Oxobenzo Dioxasilane, Retinyl Palmitate, Linalool, Eugenol.

Almond Oil is utilized to strengthen nails and soften cuticles. It is a common ingredient in salon quality cuticle treatments.

Sunflower Seed Oil offers a blend of skin healing nutrients: Vitamins A, D and E
along with calcium, iron, phosphorous, potassium and zinc. It absorbs readily into skin, leaving a light moisturizing barrier.

Ginseng is known for its revitalizing and tonic effect. It can help diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in mature skin.

If you are searching for an affordable treatment product for nail and cuticle maintenance, I can recommend Almond Cuticle Oil with Ginseng Extract. It's certainly worth adding to your Diamond Cosmetics nail polish order.

Almond Cuticle Oil with Ginseng Extract was sent to me for review. This item is available for purchase at It comes bottled in two ways: with a brush for $4.88 and with a dropper for $4.25.

Happy painting, ladies!


  1. I have such dry nails and cuticles. I have several brands of cuticle oils. Now if I'd only use them. I use hand creme constantly. I'm never without using it. I just have to make a habit of using the oil.

  2. I just started using Cuticle Oil the other day, and have noticed such a huge change in my nails!
    Really a must-have product to use daily!
