Lush Lemony Flutter Cuticle Butter - Review

Sunday, January 27, 2013



I will be the first to admit and point out that my cuticles are in no fit state.
After asking my friends what they use to keep theirs in tip top shape most recommended Lush Lemony Flutter Cuticle Butter.
To be honest this didn't fill me with joy as I have tried it in the past and didn't really find it to do much
but as that was a good few years ago I figured trying it one more time wouldn't hurt!

Lush Lemony Flutter Cuticle Butter is a thick almost balm like moisturising body butter that has been designed to target dry skin such as the cuticles but can also be used anywhere else on the body.
A mix of natural ingredients such as shea butter, coconut oil and mango butter fuse together to form
this super thick butter that does require a little warming with the hands before it easily spreads.
It does of course have a delightfully citrus fresh zingy lemon scent which is probably my favourite thing about this product.

So am I a convert to Lush Lemony Flutter Cuticle Butter?
In a word no. Once again I really don't understand the appeal, I find the butter to be unbearably thick,
sticky and not something I look forward to using. In fact I'd go as far as stating that I have so far avoided using this other than to test it out.
Am I being unfair? I really don't think so this is my third pot of the Lush Lemony Flutter Cuticle Butter
and each time the sticky, greasy texture has put me off using it daily which I imagine you would have to do in order to see maximum results. I'm a huge fan of Lush but I can safely say this is the last time I will purchase this particular product.

Is it just me who struggles to get to grips with the Lemony Flutter Cuticle Butter?

  4. I'm not a fan of this as well, i brought it one after seeing lots of reviews raving about it and it's horrible ended up washing it off straight away, i found Orly Cuticle Care Complex really sorted out my cuticles

  5. I loved this when I had it. I suffered from really dry hands and the girl in Lush advised me to mix this with sea salt twice a week and use it as a scrub. Worked a treat!

  6. I use Dadi'Oil which is 95% organic and smells lovely or CND Solar oil which smells of almonds for my cuticles. Both come in a nail polish pot and brush on so are handy to keep in your handbag:)

  9. You have such a talent at arranging and picturing products to make me drool over the screen.
    I can see that other cheaper alternatives could do the same thing too, but heck i love LUSH and if i had the spare cash to treat myself i'd buy that.

  11. I loved this, I used it on my feet though! It's fabulous for dry heels, I wasn't too keen on it for my cuticles either.

  12. I love this for dry areas like elbows and knees but its too greasy to use on the cuticles!

  13. I have exactly the same problem with this. I got a tiny sample pot with a Lush order once and didn't even want to use up that tiny amount. It's sticky, ridiculously greasy and leaves a mess on everything I touch. Thanks, but no thanks!

  14. I agree, I don't see the appeal and I'm not a fan of lemon flavoured products. Great blog though!

  16. I love this! I have it slathered over my cuticles as I type, I too find it thick and quite greasy but I find it effective (if you can stand the texture)and I use it as a night treatment!

  17. I adore this - I'm washing my hands a million times a day with alcohol gel at work and this is the only thing I've found to keep my hands soft. I use it all over my hands at night as a night treatment.

  18. I've never tried this before. I love the smell of lemons and that almost looks like a custard.

  19. Love it - makes my hands super soft, also like the lemony fragrance, but the texture is a bit sticky..

  20. I can't stand the smell, seriously, it is like one of those air fresheners you hang in your car. Plus it is also very sticky. I am now using Caudalie hand and nail cream and I love it. If you like citric smell this one will win you over.

  21. This is exactly what I've thought every time I've looked at it in store - it just seems greasy and unpleasant to use. It does smell amazing though!

  22. Thank you for doing this review, think I will give it a miss! Have you tried the Burts Bees lemon cuticle cream, that is amazing and not thick and greasy :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. Try Flexitol nail and cuticle balm. It's keeps them soft and in shape.

  24. I actually really like this, but not daily. It's a bit of a mess to use.

    But have you tried the Burt's Bees one? It's more of a wax product - really firm in the tub - and has a thinner consistency when applied. I prefer that one for daily use, personally.

  25. Other uses: You can use this on knees and elbows, on your feet at night for a soak in foot cream, on your lips, and mix it with ocean salt (from lush) to make an amazing scrub :)

  26. I would also recommend the Burt`s Bees cuticle cream. I haven`t tried the Lush one so I`m not sure how they would compare, but I find the Burt`s bees one to be light and non-sticky. My cuticles look and feel better almost immediately though it can take some patience to put on because you have to warm it up with your fingers a little bit.

  27. I didn't like this at all at first either - seemed thick, sticky and useless. Then I just halved the amount I was applying and only out it on before bed - suddenly, it was pretty darn good! I still hate how clammy it makes your hands feel, but when you're asleep you don't really notice haha :)

  28. I literally was in a store yesterday and was close to buying this, however I currently use a cuticle oil that I love so thought I would give it a miss this time. Having read this blog I am pleased I didn't buy it now.
