Review: Burt's Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream

I'm so sick and tired of dealing with awful nails and cuticles lately- the condition of mine have been dry and uncomfortably sore. What is even worse is that my cuticles are dry to the point of peeling- yuck! At work I stumbled across the Burt's Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream and had a quick try of the tester available and fell in love! I didn't buy it instantly but I did go home and did a little search online about this cuticle cream. Having won Beautyheaven's Best Nail Treatment in its Best in Beauty Awards 2012, and having many 5 star reviews to boast about, I knew that this little tin of lemon butter cream would be worth every cent of the $14.95 I paid.

Waxy consistency
Presented in a small vintage styled tin, its simple packaging is attractive and easy to use. I was greeted with a "lemon butter" fragrance as I opened it which reminded me of lemon cheesecake, which was quite refreshing! Despite being called a "cream", the product inside is quite firm and waxy, similar to a balm.

The Burt's Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream is described as an intensive, natural treatment to nourish and moisturise the nails and cuticles, with a touch of lemon oil to make the nails smell incredible clean, healthy and beautiful. Vitamin E and rosemary leaf oil are to help condition the skin and assist with its repair while beeswax helps to seal in moisture, protecting the cuticles and nails from drying out. Sounds exactly like what I need!

100% natural, no animal testing and certified natural!
I've never had a good experience with a cuticle cream before- the only time I have used one was in a cheap nail kit I received as a Christmas gift some five or so years ago. It was a cream, and the scent was just overpowering and smelled of powder which was not pleasant! Needless to say I never used it again (it didn't even help with my cuticles). However the Burt's Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream is a different story. Non-greasy, absorbs instantly into the skin and does exactly what it claims it does! Just the right amount of product is picked up after swiping the waxy product with my index finger, and is lovely to apply- not much is needed as it is quite concentrated. The discomfort I had with my peeling cuticles was relieved- I couldn't even achieve this with a very thick hand cream! Just after one day of applying this cuticle cream, my cuticles and surrounding nail bed have never looked and felt better!  Here is a before and after shot after just one application of the cuticle cream (please excuse the awkwardness of my hand):


 You can definitely see a difference, even after just one application! I am very happy with this purchase (I seem to be quite happy with my recent purchases as of yet which is good) and have to say, I didn't really expect much from this humble tin of lemon butteriness. It has been very enjoyable to apply and the refreshing lemon scent doesn't hurt either and my cuticles are in a much better condition now!

Have you tried the Burt's Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream before? How about other cuticle/nail creams?

    2. Ooh I haven't thought of that, the consistency is slightly similar to lip balm! I just love this Burt's Bees cuticle cream because it doesn't feel greasy at all and is instantly absorbed :)

  5. My sister recommended this to me. She told me it will help nails grow stronger and it really worked on her because she managed to grow nails twice as long as her nail bed and people were asking if her nails were real or fake. I was like, if only fake ones looked that good lol. I have a pot of this but I keep forgetting about it, maybe in winter I'll start using it again. They usually have this cream in a pack of other things that make it a better deal especially when they have sales.

  7. I love everything Burts Bees! My nails are so pathetic, I need to get them in shape and I'm currently trying to grow them out. This will probably definitely be worth purchasing for myself. Thanks for the review!

  14. Your cuticles don't look too bad in the pictures though! For a majority of my life I've had this fear of pushing my cuticles back or even touching them, and I've only started getting over it, so I think a cream like this would help! Could you use this as a hand cream also?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I don't think you can use this as a hand cream because it is much too waxy and concentrated! It would take a while swiping your finger over the product to get enough to cover your hands- but with that being said, with some perseverance you could probably use it as a hand cream :)

      Delete
    2. Oh really, it's that thick? Well I guess that makes sense that they'd put it in a tin (rather than a tube) then!

      Delete
  15. This sounds soo nice! And it would be amazing as a lip balm if it does that for your cuticles. It sounds very similar to Lush's lemony flutter cuticle cream which I am contemplating buying also. My cuticles are in good condition but this sounds nice to use anyway :D xx

  27. Burt's Bee always have good recommendations, I think I'd be needing this as the dry weather in London is making my palms crack and I'm guessing my cuticles aren't looking any better either! lol. So glad I clicked on your comment that led me back to your blog, your posts' contents are info and image juicy so expect to be seeing some regular comments from me. I've just bought a new pair of SS13 Céline loafers in hopes to provoke in minimalism, I'd say it's still quite provoking, do tell what you think on my investment on these new hooves lol ;)
