Hello loves! How are you, hope all is well and you had a fab weekend! The summer sales have kicked in and I couldn’t resist so I did a little bit of shopping the past couple of days. Opps! If you’re interested to know what I got please let me know and I’d love to haul everything for you! :) Now for the exciting part, the product that I’ll be reviewing for you today is one of my Holy Grail beauty goodies and it is Lush Lemony Flutter Cuticle Butter ($16.89 for 1.5 oz. or £6,25 for 50g.).
I get asked a lot on my NOTD posts how I maintain such nice cuticles so there you go ladies and gentlemen – Lush Lemony Flutter actually does it all for me! (: About two years back I had a lot of problems with both my nails and cuticles so I was searching the Internet for some reviews on great cuticle treatments. The one that most of the people suggested was this butter from Lush. Back then I wasn’t such a Lush addict so I wasn’t expecting much but still decided to give it a go. As per usual, I couldn’t be more wrong and I not only LOVED Lemony Flutter straight away but also it is now a firm part of my nail care routine!
Lemony Flutter comes in the typical black Lush jar and it has some instruction on how to use the product as well as the full list of ingredients at the back. There is also an illustration of the lovely Kamila, which made my product (these always intrigue me so much for some reason haha). One jar of Lemony Flutter contains 50g. / 1.5 oz., which at first seemed like not much product but it actually turned out to be pretty economical and a little goes a long way! The cuticle butter expires for approximately one year and to be honest I am not able to finish the jar during that time, even though I use it every single day. :)
Even though Lemony Flutter is labeled as “cuticle butter”, it is also great to use on any other dry bits of your body like your knees, elbows and heels. It actually really does work wonderful, which I love, plus you know I am a sucker for such multifunctional products so this is definitely a winner! (: As for the actual cuticles, it is absolutely amazing too. I religiously use this every night and I just rub a little bit of product into the areas I want and then let the product sit. When I wake up in the morning my skin is SO smooth and deeply moisturized and the cuticles are so much more supple. It is actually amazing how this stuff works and how it transforms my hands overnight! (: Lemony Flutter has a very thick buttery consistency and it feels super rich. The product has so much beneficial ingredients in it such as Shea butter, mango butter, beeswax and cold-pressed avocado oil as well as tons of other great oils, so it comes as no surprise to me how brilliant it is! <3
As much as I adore how soft and smooth this makes my cuticles, there are a few small drawbacks to Lemony Flutter that I’d like to mention. The biggest turnoff for me is the scent! Even thinking of it now makes me sick… It has such strong, overpowering zesty lemon scent that even though it initially feels fresh is just too much for me. I love citrusy scents but this one has weird undertones to it and it’s just too strong. Sadly, it does linger for hours, which is even worse! Despite the horrendous smell though I absolutely love this product and I won’t stop using it but it would just be great if Lush do something about it… I know that some people enjoy Lemony Flutter’s smell so don’t be scared, just go ahead and give it a sniff in the store! :) What I am also not too fond about this product is that it is a bit greasy. Even though I work the butter well into my skin it takes ages to absorb and it definitely leaves a greasy feel. This is understandable having in mind the impressive amount of oils the product has in it, but this is why I use this only at night! (: One last thing that may be important for some of you is that Lemony Flutter is NOT virgin!
So beauties, this is all I have to say about Lemony Flutter. This miracle worker makes my cuticles soft, smooth and hydrated and it is definitely a must-have for me! Even though I cannot stand the overpowering scent and I am not crazy about the greasy feeling this leaves, I would without a doubt continue repurchasing and I highly recommend checking it out if you’re battling dry, chapped cuticles or flaky skin! :)
Have you tried Lemony Flutter before? What do you think of it? Which is your favorite cuticle treatment?
Lots of love,
