Burt's Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream

Burt's Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream. Perhaps the most adorable looking product ever created. In this lovely little tin is a waxy balm or 'cuticle cream' that smells like Lemon Sherbet - a scent I never really thought much of until I discovered this product.

I was so lucky to receive this product in a giveaway prize from Dawn over at See It, Love It, Swatch it. This is the first Burt's Bees product that I have ever tried and I am so very impressed.

I don't really look after my nails. I don't damage them or anything, I just make no effort to care for them especially. Since receiving this product I have made an effort daily to apply this and it really has made such a difference to the state of my nails, or at least cuticles. Though it is described as a cuticle cream, it certainly is more of a balm or a wax as it is quite hard, not at all cream-like.

I have found that where my nails used to be slightly weak and my cuticles a little dry, they are now stronger and more nourished. In saying that, my nails were never really in a dire kind of state, so the change hasn't been all that drastic.

I apply this before bed as it does leave a bit of a greasy residue before soaking in. I love the scent it gives, a fizzy, citrus, lemon smell that is quite refreshing. I probably wouldn't use it throughout the day, simply because it does transfer everywhere before soaking in.

The only problem that I have with this product is what I love about it too - that it comes in a little tin. I love the size and convenience of the tin, I just find that the product inside gets so grotty. That said, I don't believe there actually is an alternate way to package this, I just feel that I should mention its tendency to get all gross and grotty.

I'm not 100% sure how much it retails for, though I think it is around $15. I don't know how that compares with other, similar products, but I probably wouldn't bother purchasing this myself. I do really, really like it but I simply don't feel that I need it. I will certainly be using it regularly though!

I am very impressed with my first product from Burt's Bees and I shall keep an eye out for other products to pick up in the future.

I give this product 8/10.


  1. I really want to try this product! What I've been doing before bed is rubbing the excess lip balm off of my finger onto my cuticles haha.

    1. I've never thought of it effective?

    2. It actually is! Haha, my cuticles are in pretty good shape!

  2. I have been meaning to try this stuff for ages! My cuticles suck :(
