Hello and let me introduce you to my latest obsession (and sadly, I’m not very original about this as it is also a cult favourite…), Lush Lemony Flutter Cuticle Butter*.
The first thing that lead me to continually go back and test out Lush Lemony Flutter Cuticle Butter at the store even when I had a few cuticle oils I planned to use up first, was the scent. In general, when it comes to scent, Lush is one of my favourite brands. Lemony Flutter smells exactly how the name would make you think–lemony and light, a bit like lemon meringue pie. Very delicious but only if you (like me) like lemon scents.
In terms of the actual product, Lush Lemony Flutter Cuticle Butter is an incredibly thick cream, that melts down to an oil as you rub it into dry skin. It is really meant for super dry areas like cuticles or elbows, and so it is quite heavy and leaves behind a bit of an oily residue, which is one of the reasons I like to apply it before bed. It would also work well if you have cracked heels, and you can read the rest of my Lush Foot Favourites over at Workaday Ramblings. However it is not the kind of product I would use to replace a body lotion, unless all your skin is dry and peeling.
Because of intensive Lush Lemony Flutter Cuticle Butter, you really only need the smallest amount for it to work. I use maybe a pea-sized amount or less for both my hands. I will definitely get a lot of use out of this product and expect it to last me a long time, although I love it enough I should finish it up before the expiration date– which all Lush products have because of their natural ingredients.
As much as I love using Lush Lemony Flutter Cuticle Butter, for something to put in my bag for during the day it is not my format at choice, I prefer something a little easier to apply like the Sally Hansen Cuticle Rehab although I have carried this around a few times anyway. I love applying it before bed to my cuticles and anywhere else that might need it so they get lots of moisture overnight. As long as I consistent about using this product, I definitely see a difference.
Overall, I definitely understand why Lush Lemony Flutter Cuticle Butter is such a cult favourite, because it’s one of mine now too!
