Cuccio has been in the nail business as long as I have. I have seen the company grow from one little Star Nail line to having their foot in all kinds of brands. I always thought Tony Cuccio reminded me of a beauty lovin’ mobster, but I guess its just the name.
Back to the subject at hand. I have gotten my little paws into a really nice line from Cuccio Naturale, a spa manicure line based on the yummy smells of milk and honey. And they really do smell amazing. The products I have tried in this line (and my thoughts about each) are below:
Milk and Honey Sea Salts: This is a really nice hand and body treatment along the line of the 5 Minute Manicure products. Lots of rich oils, lots of salt (to do the scrubbing), and a magnificent scent. All for a much more reasonable cost than the 5 Min Manicure - $15 at Amazon.com
Milk and Honey Cuticle Conditioning Butter Stick: I believe this is a brand spanking new product, as I cannot find it for sale anywhere. This is a roll up stick with a rich blend of jojoba, olive oil, shea butter and vitamins A and E, in a beeswax base. Keep your eye out for it - it is a really convenient way to keep some cuticle conditioners with you without the risk of a bottle of oil coming open in your bag. Eek.
Milk and Honey Cuticle Revitalizer Complex Oil: This is a nice oil - so great that my mother snatched it as soon as she tried it. *Sigh* The milk and honey scent is really nice - it is one of the food scents that doesn’t bother me at all. Retail size is a 1/2 oz bottle with a glass curved dropper that doles out just the right amount. $12 at Amazon.com.
Lyte Ultra-Sheer Body Butter in Honey & Soy Milk: This is my favorite product in the milk and honey line. It is one of the most non greasy lotions I have used. It is pretty heavily scented, but the scent smells quite nice and dissipates in a reasonable amount of time - it won’t interfere with your other fragrances for long. If you are one who needs lotion and hates greasy, this is absolutely your lotion. I don’t mind greasy for a little while, but I love this lotion too. It is perfect to sit around the house and grab a pump or two while you are going about your business - it won’t leave you greasy for long at all. I’m having a tough time finding this one online too, but keep an eye out at Shopping.com and you will find it popping up soon.
This Cuccio Naturale line can likely be found in your local salons as well, so take a little time and call around or visit your local salon to find these great Cuccio products. This is going to be a tough year for salons, do what you can to give them your support if you want them to still be around next year.
