It's no secret that our nails get a bunch of attention: We pamper them, paint them and when we indulge in some nail art, they serve as an accessory to any outfit.

But a gorgeous set of nails can quickly be overshadowed by dry cuticles. The skin that surrounds our nails is essential for keeping bacteria out of your nail bed and critical for nail growth and overall health.

Whether you trim your cuticles or not, it's a good idea to incorporate a conditioning treatment once a week. And there is one bestselling cuticle oil Amazon shoppers turn to: Cuccio Naturale Milk and Honey Cuticle Revitalizing Oil.

Cuccio Naturale Milk and Honey Cuticle Revitalizing Oil

Over 61,000 Amazon shoppers have scooped up the Cuccio Naturale Milk and Honey Cuticle Revitalizing Oil and given it an impressive five-star rating, making it a bestseller and the second-highest placement on Amazon's list of Bestsellers in Cuticle Oils.

The formula is made with a blend of cold-pressed oils that helps condition brittle cuticles and promote healthy nails. One of the main ingredients, sunflower oil, quickly absorbs to hydrate skin, while vitamins act as nutrients with anti-inflammatory and strengthening properties.

As its name suggests, this oil is also made with milk and honey — the latter naturally soothes skin and milk's lactic acid refreshes cuticles.

But beyond the label, this affordable oil has nearly 6,000 five-star reviews from satisfied customers.

"This cuticle oil is of better quality than any I've used before," noted one buyer. "Not greasy at all, is nicely scented and absorbs relatively quickly while still moisturizing the cuticle. Looking forward to purchasing the body oil as well."

The directions recommend using one drop of oil on each cuticle and gently massaging it into the skin. Thanks to the light formula, it can be used daily, and many users appreciate how easy it is to incorporate this into their daily routine.

"Who knew the secret to beautiful hands is cuticle oil?" said one happy buyer. "I use it every night as part of my routine, and my cuticles and nails both look smoother and less mangled for it."

Though most customers enjoyed the shape of the bottle, some preferred to put the oil into a travel-friendly brush applicator.

"I had read reviews on how the applicator was difficult to use so I also ordered a pack of empty fillable applicators with brush tips," explained one user of the alternative packaging they whipped up themselves.

Either way, the Cuccio Naturale Milk and Honey Cuticle Revitalizing Oil stands out beyond its promise to improve nail and cuticle health, with many users raving about its scent.

"Smells delicious," pointed out one reviewer. "Love using this product! The smell is heavenly... but [it's] subtle enough to not overpower."

So whether you're preparing for the cold winter air before it wreaks havoc on your cuticles or you're trying to repair years of nail damage, this highly reviewed oil is the perfect solution.
