Burt’s Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream review :
This isn’t my first experience with a cuticle butter. I used to use Lemony Flutter from Lush, which I’ve reviewed before on my blog. What I disliked about Lush’s offerings was the greasy nature, it’s grainy texture and also the almost chemical smell of lemons. Needless to say, before trying Burt’s bees version I wasn’t expecting good things. Burt’s bees version is a totally different style of product. It comes in a tin and has the texture of cold butter. No more grease!
I’ve really enjoyed using this. It sinks in immediately and as a fresh scent, as opposed to an overpowering ‘fake’ smell of lemons. It doesn’t linger nor get on my nerves! It works great with the hand salve that I’ve also got from Burt’s bees (reviewed here). This cuticle cream doesn’t mess about. If like me, your hands and nail bed are a state during the winter, you need to try this! it sinks in immediately and you’re not left doing the awkward hand shuffle whilst you wait for your mitts to absorb the product. As with the hand salve, I’ve constantly got this on my vanity so that it’s in reach whenever I feel like softening up my cuticles.
Since using Burt’s Bees hand products the texture of my hands on the whole has improved dramatically. In respect to my cuticles, I’m not longer left with those annoying dry bits of skin on the edge of my nail. I finally feel confident enough to grow out my nails and wear polish without the fear of drying my skin out in the process. It’s wonderful. I won’t be going back that’s for sure!
The full size is a mere £5.99 on the Burt’s Bees website. Give it a try if you’re suffering!
