Review: Burt's Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Creme

About a few years ago, I had received a Burt's Bees set from a friend as a gift. In that set, there was a small container of Burt's Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Creme. It ended up just sitting in my desk drawer for quite a long time. I didn't really paint my nails ever, nor did I pay attention to the condition of my cuticles.

But finally when I started to become interested in makeup, I saw a video by MissChievous on doing an at home manicure. In the video, she used the same cuticle creme. So I dug out my little tin, and used it that night. I woke up the next morning with soft, smooth, and tame cuticles. It was amazing! I had no idea that I was storing a little treasure in my desk! :) After a while I had used it so much, I had to buy a new one (the tiny one was getting hard to get the product out with my long nails).

I have also found another fantastic use for it.
I am no fan of vaseline. It's not so much that I don't find it useful, but it's the smell. And this creme - it smells delicious! So last night, when I got home from work, I was putting some lotion on my hands, and I noticed that the side of my right hand was burning. I looked at it and I was bright red. When I touched it, it felt SO dry. I realized my lotion wasn't doing the trick, so I grabbed my Burt's Bee's Cuticle Creme and started to put on thin layers slowly. In about 3-5 minutes, the burning had gone away, and the skin there was no longer tight.

I was SO impressed with the quality of this product! I mean, I know it says "cuticle" creme, but I felt that since it was so thick and moisturizing to my cuticles, it would do the same elsewhere.
I definitely plan to use this creme when my skin gets really dry - I think it's perfect for winter! What other uses do you find with this product? :) Do share! :)


  1. I lurve lurve lurve Burts Bee's, I used my pot of this out, and Ive been using lushs lemon version, but its just not the same. Will be returning to Burt ;o)

  2. Isn't Burt's Bees wonderful? This cream is so moisturizing! I've heard so much about the Lush Lemon stuff for cuticles, I was almost tempted to try it. But I'm relieved now to hear from you that it wasn't nearly the same :) xxxxxxoooooo
