With years of constant abuse from nail varnish remover, buffers and cuticle sticks, my cuticles were in awful shape. Burt’s Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream soon sorted this out and was a definite hand saviour out in Malawi...thanks sis :)
Sold in a small vintage style tin, it is cute and attractive, however like any other tin pots remember not to cream your hands before opening (Slippery disaster waiting to happen!).
Despite being referred to as “cream”, with more of a thick waxy consistency, it’s closer to a balm with a lovely refreshing lemony scent.
With vitamin E and Rosemary leaf oil to condition the skin and assist repair, and beeswax to seal in moisture, this protects your nails from drying out, making it the perfect natural treatment to nourish and moisturise.
Being a concentrated formula, you don’t need much. Simply swipe your finger across the balm and massage a little into each cuticle.
I saw a noticeable difference in the condition of my cuticles and surrounding nail bed from the very first use and have continued to apply once a week to keep them nice and healthy.
I didn't expect much from this humble tin of lemon buttery-ness, but I am left pleasantly surprised.
