Cuticle Care - Burt's Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream

Burt's Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream

Burt's Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream is available in 2 sizes: 17g and a handy 8.5g travel size tin (a bit smaller than those travel size vaselines). The first thing I thought when I bought this product: "I'm going to literally break all my nails to get this thing open!" I don't know if it's just me but it took me a good 5 mins to get this baby open! Thankfully, this was only a first time thing and it's easy to open and close now :)

I've heard a lot about this cuticle cream, but I've always been quite happy with my OPI Avoplex oil, except for the fact that my mini bottle kind of exploded in my makeup bag and made everything oily :( To be honest that's what prompted me to try Burt's Bees, as it is a solidified product, i.e. no leakages :D

Consistency-wise its pretty solid and waxy, so you have to rub the product quite a few times to get enough on your fingers. The formula is a little on the greasy side, but lets face it that's the point of a cuticle cream :) I absolutely love the lemony scent, really leaves your fingers feeling very nourished and fresh!

This product has been a complete life saver for my cuticles, as an avid swatcher, my nails see far more acetone than they probably should, and as a result I do suffer quite badly from dryness, but since using this product 1/2 times a day, my hands feel transformed, and I don't know how I managed without it! Really recommend this product especially to my fellow bloggers who use remover on a regular basis, it is a serious cuticle saver!! :D 


  1. I refuse to pay $15 for cuticle cream (looking at you Lush) so I got this one instead. I love it. I've had my little tin since last September and I'm barely halfway through. And this is with me putting it on everyday quite liberally. It's great stuff.

  2. I love it but it still is hard to open for me :( I wish they'd renew the package with maybe a screw on lid or something :( because trying to open it is so not good for my nails ;)
