Lush Lemony Flutter Cuticle Butter Review
Paid $15.50 AUD for 50g. Seems a little expensive, but you don't need to use much for each hand so it will last a LONG time. I tried Burts Bees cuticle cream previously. It cost me $14.95 for 17g so Lemony Flutter gives you way more bang for your buck. I prefer the smell of the Burts Bees cuticle cream, Lemony Flutter is stronger smelling and not quite as pleasant, HOWEVER, Burts Bees was very waxy - Lemony Flutter melts on contact with your skin, making a lushous oil that you can tell is really doing your cuticles (read: eponychium), nails & skin good! It is a little greasey but not too bad if you use just the right amount. But honestly, I like that. I like to massage my nails for a little while after applying - it stimulates nail growth. If it absorbed instantly it wouldn't feel as nice :) I usually apply Lemony Flutter 3 times or more a day. I'm a nail polish junkie so I need something to combat dryness from acetone and other products, and to keep my nails hydrated (flexible) and nice and strong and obviously I want my eponychiums to look good: regular moisturising makes the eponychiums shrink back, making my nails look so much better. Because of all this Lemony Flutter is PERFECT for me and I will most definetely buy it again. The smell isn't great, but the benefits of the product outweigh this little issue for sure. Please, Lush, NEVER ever discontinue this product.
I am absolutely in love with this product. If you warm your fingers up before applying it melts into your skin like butter! It's lovely, and I don't find the smell as bad now. It keeps my finger tips moisturised, eponychiums looking good and I haven't had any hang nails since I started using this product. lovelovelove.
bought this today after reading so many great reviews about it... i gotta say it is quite expensive, $15 for a small amout, and it smells gross... like citronella candle to scary the mosquitoes away... but it does work! i have suuuuuuuper dry cuticles, that flakes and hangs... i've tryed pure cold pressed avocado oil and other types of oils, they work only while they are on the skin, after one wash the cuticle goes back to its dryness.. but this lemon flutter thing kept my cuticles very moist... it does work... but smells awfull and i've found it quite expensive...
I am a huge nail polisher, and this gets raves for cuticle care. I originally bought one for a friend, but ended up using it and going back to buy one for myself. I loved it the first few times I used it, but now I am not that into it.
I guess it depends how much you use, but for my skin it stays oily/greasy/slimy for way too long after I apply. I try to rub it in as much as I can, but it does nto seem to absorb as well as other products. This may be my skin, so it coudl absolutely work for you, but it just isn't my thing.
I do love the smell, and the container is great, no risk of it squishing out and its reuseable. There is a lot in the jar, and it is a few dollars cheaper in store than online so I was happy with the price for such a large amount. However now I am left with a large amount that I really don't care to use any longer..
This product is really multi-functional! I use it not only on cuticles but also elbows, knees, feet and lips! It works just great and smells really addictive... Not like chemical lemon. It makes skin smooth and moisturized.
I gave this several chances because on paper I should really like it. The novelty of Lush products appeals to the niche snob in me and I like all things lemon. It not only didn't moisturize my cuticles, it actually dried them out and created little hangnails and toughened skin around my fingertips. When I stop using this my hands revert to normal. I don't understand it either but for the sake of my hands I can't keep trying to like this product when it clearly doesn't work for me.
This product is fantastic . It keeps my chronic dry lips and elbows moisturized .
I love this stuff! I was given a sample as a demo the first time I entered LUSH. The lady had me put it on my hands, followed by Ocean Salt and Dream Cream. My hand were nice and baby soft for hours. FYI, I have bad eczema on my hands (they sometimes crack open and bleed in the winter, it's gross), and other lotions make my hands feel greasy. This didn't at all; my "old people hands" stay soft and pretty all day. With continued use, it actually improved my eczema. I recommend the trio (Lemon Butter, Ocean Salt, and Dream Cream) for dry skin. It *is* expensive, but totally worth it. This is also great pre-manicure as cuticle butter.
Let me start out by saying I used to cut my cuticles. It left the skin around my nails very dry, flaky, with peeling skin around the nail bed. I've stopped cutting my cuticles for the last two months and just started pushing them back. Enter Lemony Flutter! It has left my cuticles and fingertips moisturized to the point where I have no visible dry skin. My skin is smooth and even; something I haven't had in over 10 years!
Overall, I give this a 4, but it doesn't mean I dislike it (read on to see why I gave it a 4). I really like the consistency. It starts out as a semi-solid (think of a stick of butter that's been sitting out at room temperature for an hour) and with the warmth of your body, it melts. It has definitely helped with moisturizing my cuticles. I have less hangnails and my cuticles are so much more happier. I also use this as a foot cream. In addition, I use this after washing my hands. It may be a bit oily for some people, but it does wonders for my very dry hands. It has a ton of wonderful ingredients such as organic avocado oil, shea butter, mango butter, and extra virgin coconut oil just to name a few.
I was so excited when I bought it, that I had to try it on right when I got into my car. The smell, is something I'm getting used to. I'm not a huge fan of the scent as it is super over powering. It's weird because I practically shoved this in my boyfriends nose and he said he couldn't smell a thing. I guess it's just me. Overall, I did give this a 4 because I can't stand the smell, but I love what it does for my cuticles and dry skin.
This tub is 1.5 oz (45g). I'm hopeful this will last me by the expiration date. Would I purchase this again? Definitely!
I LOVE this product ! I bought this after seeing many nail swatchers posting reviews on it and after my failed attempt with Burt's Bee's Lemon Butter.
This stuff is GREAT. It really heals up my cuticles (which is awesome, because mine suck) and helps make them and my heels much more... appealing to look at, haha. I only use it before I sleep though, because it's pretty greasy.
I don't like the price though, (maybe I'm just cheap?) it's 12CAD before taxes... And it's a relatively small container. Still worth it though, would totally buy it again.
I got really excited when I read the reviews for this and rushed to the shop to get it! It didn't amaze me at first but I guess its growing on me... It did the job of smoothening my cuticles but didn't seem like it melted down the hard skin on the sides as well as my sally hansen hands nails cuticles creme. However,,, the smell is sooooo good! lemoney with a green tea-ish aftertaste. BUTTTTT after using it for a while it grew on me. because it is a butter, the best thing about it is that it doesn't wash off with gentle handwashings! which is so great for me because my hands are always getting wet and dirty. So will I buy it again, maybe if i haven't found anything better, and if i ever finish this pottle. they should make like a $5 mini pot version!
