Barielle Nail, Hand & Foot Care Line Review & Giveaway

After a long winter season your dry skin is cracked and begging for moisturization and most lotions and store bought moisturizers just don't do the job.  I know, my heels are the worst, they crack and get callused up very easily so I have to keep an extra close eye on them during this time of the year when the air is cool in the morning and hot in the afternoons because my skin goes crazy, it doesn't know what to do!  Luckily for me, my friend Julie had the perfect solution for my dry cracked heels and while we're at it she also had the solution for my weak, easily breakable nails too and not to mention one of the hottest nail colors of the season all from a company I'd never heard of before but will now be sure to use for a long time to come - Barielle.


So what is Barielle?
According to their website, "Over 30 years ago, Barielle introduced "Nail Strengthener Cream" as the first nail care product of its kind.  Originally formulated to condition the hooves of million-dollar thoroughbred racehorses, this legendary skin care product helps nails grow healthier and stronger while resisting splits, peels and breaks.  It's effectiveness launched Barielle as a nail and skin care company with unique products and approaches to treating, protecting, and maintaining nails.  Barielle has since evolved into one of the leading prestige nail care, hand care, and  foot care brands sold in the world, known for our cracked foot treatments and the best moisturizers for dry skin."


Barielle Nail Strengthening Cream - $10
Barielle Nail Strengthening Cream helps resist splits, peels and breaks and with daily use you will maintain healthy, strong, beautiful nails in no time.  In fact, you'll see noticeable improvements in just 3-4 weeks!  Best of all you can use this cream over nail polish, that's right, I said over so if you forget to put your nail strengthening cream on before your polish, no sweat!






Barielle Nail Color- Swizzle Stix - $8 each
Barielle's nail colors are Salon Strength Formula completely free of the chemicals dibutyl phthalate, toulene, and formaldehyhde which means it's pregnancy safe!  I remember when I was pregnant I had to hold off on getting my nails done because I didn't want to risk breathing in those nasty chemical fumes. Shades by Barielle provide a high-shine glossy coat and form a protective barrier over your nail for a long lasting, beautiful finish.






Barielle Total Foot Care Cream - $12
This luxurious foot cream helps eliminate cracks and calluses without harsh peeling, acids or camphor.  It leaves your feet feeling silky smooth and it works so well it won the Allure Magazine "Best of Beauty Award"!  It has a light baby powder fragrance so it's easy to tolerate. You simply apply once or twice per day for soft, beautiful feet. 






My Review
I always try to take care of my feet, by lotioning them, scraping them, or soaking them yet no matter how hard I try, a few days after I work on my feet, my heels are right back to being callused and ugly all over again.  It never fails!  I've tried all kinds of special creams and lotions to no avail, until my friend Julie turned me onto Barielle's Total Foot Cream.  I apply it just twice a day, once when I wake up and once before bed and my heels stay moisturized for the majority of the day.  My feet are soft, silky and the best part is I don't have that uncomfortable scratchy feeling of my heels rubbing against the blanket when I get into bed. Eww!  It gives me the chills just thinking about it!  
The Barielle Nail Strengthening Cream is also a great product.  I bite my nails so my nails are especially prone to cracking and breaking.  I have never heard of a nail cream before and loved how it didn't stink like some nail solutions and creams do.  This product takes 3-4 weeks to see full effects so I'm excited to see how thick and long my nails grow!
And the Barielle Swizzle Stix Nail Color is hot!  It's the perfect color for summer, it looks just like the color of a swimming pool!  Every time I wear at it or look at it it reminds me of a cool spring day or looking up at a clear summer sky.  What do you think of when you see this beautiful color?  
Pros: All 3 products are high quality, work amazing and very affordable. 
Cons: I honestly can't think of any cons!
Overall I am very impressed with Barielle and their products!!  I would give them a 4 out out 5 shopping bags!  With prices this low and product quality this high, how can you go wrong?

  1. My biggest skin care concern deals with my hands. They stay in water due to motherly/wifely duties (hand washing clothes, dishes, baths/showers, cleaning, etc.). So, I end up with hands that peel and nails that are weak. Jessica B, jebpink@yahoo.com
