Northern Star Cuticle Oil

Enclosed gift with press sample

Kristin from Northern Star included this oil as a gift with the review samples of polish that she sent to me. She wasn't expecting a review of it at all, but this stuff is so good how could I not?

The tube is compact, no larger than a lippy tube and the applicator is soft and makes it easier to get the oil where I want it. The ingredients are good for skin and include olive oil, glycerin, almond oil, and grapeseed oil. Each of those oils has different skin benefits so I've linked the words to a source if you want to read more about them. I've used this oil for about three weeks, and always reach for it right before I do my swatch photo shoots. It absorbs fast, moisturizes well, and smells great!

The photo below is after three weeks of use! Look how much is still in the tube! A single dip does all five fingers and then I dip it again for the other hand. Rub it in, and in a few minutes its absorbed and I'm ready to shoot the photos!

The scent of the oil I received is Ginger Lime which is delicious! However; the oil comes in a variety of yummy scents which can be found in this listing at her shop. She also has some really fun scents available for the fall season like Candy Corn, Absinthe, and Pumpkin Spice!

Right now she's doing a promotion so you can pick up all the fall polishes and a set of cuticle oils and save on shipping if you spend over $50. Just fill your cart and then use the discount code FREESHIP50 at checkout. This code is good for worldwide orders! How cool is that?

Thanks so much Kristin, for the awesome gift! I will continue to use it often!

  1. I'm so happy you liked it! My cuticles get dry from all the remover I use while swatching so I never am far from a tube myself! :)

  2. I have a crazy obsession with cuticle oils. Will have to give this one a try.
