I've tried so many cuticle creams, and this is the worst. It goes on oily and makes your hands feel dirty (dirt collecting in the oil?). When it finally dries, your cuticles look drier than before. Ugh. It seems to get that "gritty" feeling that BB's products acquire over time too. The smell is fine, but that doesn't make up for the overall nastiness.
I found this product to be absolutely perfect for the task or moisturising cuticles and the nail itself. After the use of harsh chemicals in nail polish removers, this product really saved the day. The smell DOES resemble dish washer but the moisture it gave and the fact it was free from chemicals and other irratants made me believe it was a very good product that does exactly what it says it will.
I did not care for this at all. Burt's Bees makes some wonderful products but this reminded me of a can of pledge rather than a cuticle treatment. I had better results using a Chapstick on my cuticles than this.
I broke down the other night when I was at Fred Myer and bought it.I didn't really have the money for it but I really needed it.My hands are trashed from gripping skateboards at my work and my cuticles were peeling off.Hand lotion just was not cutting it so I decided to try this.It has only been 2 days and already I can see a huge difference in the condition of my nails.If you have hang nails,dry peeling cuticles, or damaged skin on your hands do to hard work you should really try this, it works so well!
Good stuff - my hands need special attention, and this does the trick for my nails and skin around the nails. All natural, to boot - this is a standout for me. Love the scent, too - LEMONY!
I adore this stuff. I can see how the scent might be overpowering for some, but I just love the lemony freshness of it. I also don't find the greasiness to be as annoying as a lot of reviewers. Maybe it's a little excessive right after application, but given a few minutes it all absorbs quite well. Most importantly, it does a fantastic job soothing and moisturizing my cuticles and fingertips, which seem to need moisture infusions more often than the rest of my hands. My cuticles, which have been ragged for most of my life, stay in great shape so long as I remember to use this. I freely admit that's partly because I have a bad habit of picking at rough spots, and so I've trained myself to put on some lemon butter when I catch myself starting to pick. Be that as it may, the fact remains that I have a lot fewer rough edges since I've started using this.
Sorry, but I hated this product! I thought the little metal container was sweet, but I could never get the bloody thing open! That alone made me mad every evening when I tried to put it on. The cream itself is rather waxy and didn't resolve the dry bits around my nails. I prefer almond oil or simply a good quality body lotion before bed.
Smells so yummy and leaves my raggedy cuticles very smooth. As far as cuticle creams are concerned, this one is more of a sorbet. It's a tad greasy, so a little goes a long way. I think this is about $5, so it's not bad. The packaging is a pull-top tin compact, which is now equipped with border grooves to aid in its slightly difficult opening. This will last me a while, but I'll repurchase.
I have cuticles from hell. I mean, it's gross. I bought the Lemon Butter Cuticle Creme out of frustration and, when I was using every day, all of those little things of skin that stick out around my cuticles actually started to go away. It smells like a dream and does what it's supposed to do (which is, I guess, moisturize, but that isn't the right word...). The ingredients consist of almond & lemon oils, Vitamin E, cocoa butter, rosemary extract, beta carotene, and the staple of beeswax. My skin wasn't irritated by any of these ingredients, and if you also have cuticles from hell (or even purgatory), this is your answer.
I do like the texture of this balm - definitely not a cream, and I find it really sinks into my cuticles. However, be forewarned - the nice lemon smell you have upon opening dulls down to a petroleum/waxy odor if you keep the product around for too long. I didn't realize I still had it some months after I had misplaced it, and the smell turned somehow rancid. Very unappealing. The product works - but between the funky way it changes scent upon exposure to air and the difficulty in opening the tin (why would I want to break a nail just to soften my cuticles!) - I would not repurchase.
