I swear, there are times when I get surprised by how much God listens to me :) I was complaining about not being able to find time to go for a manicure, wishing if I could somehow control the cuticles and the dry skin around the nails. Guess what happened? No, they didn't magically disappear! HOWEVER, I did receive a lovely package from O.P.I. It was Avoplex Pampered Hands, O.P.I came to the rescue Yaay! (I should wish more often :p)

The Avoplex "Pampered Hands" set consists of a "Nail and Cuticle Replenishing oil" and "High Intensity Hand and Nail Cream". Much needed!

The Nail and Cuticle Replenishing oil moisturizes your nails as well as softens cuticles (cuticles apparently should not be removed, only pushed back). The best thing about this oil is that you don't need to use it only during manicures. It can be used twice daily (though I use it once at night time. before sleeping). I tested the product and it passed my satisfaction test.

Brand claims: "OPI's exclusive Avocado Lipid Complex replenishes your nails and cuticles, leaving them looking beautiful".

The packaging, like most O.P.I products is simple yet slick. The bottle has the signature shape. The smell of the oil has a slight fruity undertone and hints of avocado. It smells good and is non sticky.

The "High Intensity Hand and Nail Cream" is a miracle in a tube. it got rid of my dry, sad finger tips in just one application.
- Zesty, fresh smell ( Includes Shea butter, Cocoa Seed butter, and Almond butter)
- Non-greasy, thick formula
- absorbs easily into skin and nourishes instantly

Brand claims: "OPI's Advanced Avocado Lipid Complex – A combination of deep-penetrating, skin-loving antioxidants; phospholipids, the biological building blocks of skin; vitamins A, B1, B2, D, and E; essential fatty acids; and Avocado Oil, which closely resembles the skin’s own natural oils."

This cream apparently won an award in 2009 so it must be worth it for sure. That fact just made me give this product cookie points!

I am quite happy with my Avoplex Pampered Hands Duo and can guarantee you will be too. (I rarely guarantee...I think). You can get this product online from just4girls.pk or all the superstores and partnership salons offering OPI products. Cost is PKR.2,100/-
