I love this product. I was getting Burt's Bees lip balm shipped to Australia via the internet when it wasn't available here, but now a large part of the range is available in major stores (& some nice, trendy eco shops). I couldn't resist the name - Lemon Butter - a sugary spread that you can still find at homemade stalls at fetes & fairs, & something I grew up with ... so lots of great memories. And I looooove citrus smells, but lemon best of all. I can't stop smelling this 'creme' - which I'd call a balm.
As another poster made mention, I use it as a lip balm also ... & its flavourless, which can be a bonus depending on your like/dislike. My lips are very dry, seems like all the time, to the point of splitting & bleeding. My favourite & HG lip balm is Simmon's PawPaw (papaya, for you nth americans!) Salve. Comes in a little tube, no petrolatum (like some others) 1001 uses, but solves ALL my dry lip problems upon application (also heals cracked lips, soothes, etc.). But I digress ... when I have left my salve at work, or in my bag in the car, or by the bed & I'm too lazy to go upstairs, I use my Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream. I use it on my elbows & my toenails too. The dry chalkiness disappears instantly. With diligent use, hangnails begin to make a scant appearance (usually when you get lazy & forget to apply for a day or two ... you notice in a short space of time). My sister is a florist, & her nails get utterly destroyed (stalk stripping, bleaching containers, arranging, wiring, etc., etc.). I always grab some of this for her, & she says it makes her hands feel 'human' again.
Its a little pricey here in Australia ($15), and yet I STILL find it worth it. It is emollient, it is slightly waxy at the outset, but with warmth & massaging it in, it softens right up. I pop one of these in each gift I give to my girlfriends, cos I know they love it. If you're looking for a cream (as such) then this won't be something you'd like. But if you're looking for something effective, fresh, soft, divine smelling, conveniently portable and addictive ... then this may be for you.

It works, although I prefer a product with a creamier consistency compared to this waxy one. This product seems to seal in moisture rather than be emollient. Container is convenient. Will buy again for the convenience factor.

This is a miracle product, I can see a difference immediately after I apply this. I used to go for pedicures regularly, and would leave the polish on my toe-nails up to one month each time. Bad idea, because every time the polish is removed, I'd see nothing but ugly, white dry patches on my toe-nails. It got so bad that some of my nails started peeling on the surface. It looked so horrible that I'd stay away from open-toe shoes and go for a pedicure AGAIN to cover up the dryness. I tried applying moisturizer, my pedicurist introduced a nail base but nothing worked. Then I read about this on MUA and decided to give it a try. All I can say is, wow. My nails instantly looked better after I applied this, the white and dry patches were immediately less noticeable. After using this a couple of nights in a row, my nails looked as good as new. I don't go for pedicures as regularly now, but when I do, I make sure I slap this on after the polish comes off (I've since learnt to not keep the color on for too long). I also love the scent of lemons of this product, and it comes in such a generous portion I probably won't need to repurchase again anytime soon. Overall, a miracle worker for disaster nails.

I quite like this product. Even if my cuticles are very dry, it brings them back to their normal state after just one use. The only downside with this item is its prize, but I'd probably buy this again despite that.

The smell of this balm is so fresh. It has the consistency of a vaseline-based treatment rather than a cream. It smells like limes, in my opinion. It moisturizes well and keeps my hangnails at bay.
The tin is adorable as well. Love it!

I love this stuff. The tin it comes in can be kind of a hassle, but it's small and easily fits in my purse which makes up for it a bit. The scent is awesome and it does wonders for my cuticles - I used to carry this stuff in my pocket when I worked a rough job and they would get injured, it actually works as a temporary protector to future cuticle harm as well as moisturizes.

This is a good product to carry around in your purse to keep cuticles in check. When dealing with a lot of paperwork, my hands, especially my cuticles and nails, become extremely dry. I've found that putting on this cuticle cream, then some gloves over it, gets them back in presentable condition. While I'm not too keen on the open tin method, I really like this product.

I like this product. It smells good and is small enough to carry around in your purse. Helps your cuticles stay clean and soft.

I love this cuticle cream. It smells delicious, absorbs quickly and REALLY moisturizes my cuticles. I put it on every night and throughout the day and it makes my manis last at least 4 days longer!
I gave it a 2 for the packaging though because it's often hard to open.
