Dry cuticles are the chapped lips of nails. Between blistering, dry air, moisture-sucking hand soap, and (honestly) my own neglect, my nail beds have been looking like a nightmare.

Thankfully, I've found a keep-in-every purse staple that quickly moisturizes my nail beds and makes them look fresh out the salon: Olive and June's Cuticle Serum. As a nail fiend who's been doing her own manicures weekly since the age of 12, I've tried every cuticle serum on the market. Here's why Olive and June stands out.

It has a fuzzy applicator means fast absorption—and zero grease.

One of my frustrations with most cuticle oils is that they make my fingertips incredibly oily. Whether I'm typing on a keyboard, swiping on my phone, or trying to open a bottle of water, the nourishing oil gets everywhere. And, it typically doesn't absorb quickly. I tend to rub it all over my hands, but they just get greasy. Olive and June's brilliant fuzzy head applicator not only lets you easily get into every cranny of your dry nail beds, but also absorbs excess product so there's no mess.

The click pen dispenser means you can't go overboard.

I really load up my nails with this serum because they get dry within seconds of stepping out in the cold. But, I never have to worry about overdoing it because the pen has a clicker that lets you control how much product comes out. No spills anywhere!

It has superstar ingredients.

I've gotten into the habit of using this treatment on my nails twice a day, just as I would apply moisturizer on my face. It boasts a ton of healthy-for-you ingredients like avocado oil, jojoba seed oil, sunflower seed oil, and antioxidant-rich cactus flower extract and chamomile flower extract or extra soothing properties.

It's compact and great for travel.

The pen is no bigger than a Sharpie and super portable. It's not made with glass or anything that can break so you can really toss it everywhere—I sure do. It fits even in my tiniest clutch for going out—and I always leave one in my beauty pouch for when I'm on a flight.
