Burt’s Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream

Posted in Beauty

I’ve been blogging for over a year now and I still don’t have a clue what my cuticles do apart from ruining my Talon Tales posts… *hmph*

Burt's Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream

They say:

Burt’s Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream gives your needy nails a helping hand. Nourish and moisturise nails and cuticles with this intensive, natural treatment. A touch of lemon oil makes your nails smell incredibly clean, healthy and beautiful, naturally.

I say:

Oh cuticles, y u straggle and make my nails look so grimy?  My friend Brittany told me that you were supposed to push them back or snip them off… This lead to the following chain of events:

*cringes violently*

> cringefest is seen by hipsters

> hipsters claim act of cringing as a dance

> hipsters name said dance “the harlem shake”

> harlem shake takes over the internet

> self sees harlem shake and thinks “dafuq is this?”

Anywho, when I purchased the Burt’s Bees Tips and Toes Kit as a way of tipping my toes into the Burt’s Bees’ waters the Burt’s Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream was one of the products.  I have heard a lot through this through several blogs (WHERE ELSE?  What on earth am I DOING with my life…?!) and I had my fingers crossed (ravaged cuticles and all).

If you like lemon, lemon cheesecake, lemon pledges and Keith Lemon you are going to love this.  It is pretty much a slap of lemon to the chops; all natural of course.

Burt’s Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream comes (LOOOOOOOOOL) (seriously woman, you are 20 in 2 days!) (hate the game, not the player) in a dinky, lightweight tin that is perfect for stashing in handbags and pockets.

The product itself is a solid balm that melts slightly when touched.  When applied, it absorbs very quickly and I find the results are immediate.  If your cuticles are loveable rogues feeling and looking quite sorry for themselves, a quick application of this smoothes them right down.

I found that with regular use this little lemon-y gem ensures perfect nails and cuticles without much effort – perfect for my lazy self.  You can also use it on your hands if you have been caressing the icy mistress of winter a little too frequently as of late.

Even though lemon oil on it’s own is a pretty darn good skin-smoother, good ol’ Burt has decided that’s just not enough and decided to sling some almond oil, beeswax, cocoa butter AND vitamin E in there and mix it all together and you know that it’s the best of both worlds!

If you’re looking for a cuticle saviour (without starting an Internet trend or perhaps committing hara-kiri by accident) then give the Burt’s Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream a go!  You could say it counts toward your beauty 5 a day…

Whilst Burt’s Bees is cruelty free and BUAV/Cruelty Free International Certified, they do not offer vegan or vegetarian products (due to ingredients such as beeswax).  It should also be noted that they are owned by Clorox who are not cruelty free.

Burt’s Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream can be found online at Burt’s Bees, Boots and at Lucy Rose.

What do you do with your cuticles? Snip ‘em off, push ‘em back or do you just ignore them?

Thanks for reading!
