Review | Burt's Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream

A few weeks ago, I picked up a tin of Burt's Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream to try, having heard lots of good things about it! My cuticles were in a right state - the cold winter air doesn't agree with my eczema-prone skin, and add to that all the hand-washing I do in my job as a carer - my hands are more often than not a bit of a sorry state...
Burt's Bees Cuticle Cream Review + Giveaway
The 15g is a handy size and could easily be thrown in a handbag; it would also fall within the guidelines for hand luggage liquids if you wished to carry it whilst travelling. Mine lives on my bedside at the moment, in the hopes that I'll remember to apply it each evening; I'll admit I'm not very good at this, and my success rate is probably only about 50%...
The first thing to note is the beautiful lemon scent, which I adore; it's quite a strong scent, however, so it might put those with sensitive skins or noses off. I'd say this product has more of a balm-like texture than a traditional cream, being quite thick and waxy to the touch. It melts on contact with the skin, whereupon it's easy to spread around the cuticles and massage in. It does leave a slight oily residue on the skin, which is why I prefer to use this as part of my bedtime routine rather than through the day. However, I've found it works well to re-hydrate my cuticles overnight, meaning they're not feeling as rough and delicate by the time I wake up. This is definitely a product that I see better results from when I (remember to) use it three or four days running.

  1. I'm a big fan of L'Occitane shea butter hand cream. It is very effective on dry hands but still soaks in really quickly, and doesn't leave a greasy residue.
    Many thanks for the giveaway!

  2. I've never actually used a cuticle cream before, definitely want to try one though. This one sounds really good, it does sound better to use in the evening though!

  14. To be honest, so far nothing has helped me, but it's my own fault. I tend to bite my nail *eeek* and the skin around my nails suffers from this too. So the only thing that really helps is to not let it come so far and thus keeing my skin fresh with a tiny bit of the finest pumice I can find. And I try to use my nail brush each time after having removed my nail polish. Unfortunatly a cream alone or oil has never sufficed - so far! So I would love to try Burt's Bees. I have used their lip balm and was quite taken with it.
