I was quite excited when I bought Lemony Flutter a few weeks ago but after trying it a few times I found I was disappointed with the texture and scent. I don’t like to waste things so I’ve asked my mate from work to do this review so over to you Lizzy!
Being a tree hugging hippy I love LUSH products simply for their ethical values and fresh organic content so I was eager to give the Lemony Flutter cuticle cream a go. I am also a moisturising queen, so a new addition to my ever swelling moisturising collection is always irresistible and exciting.
My first thought on opening the tub was “Wow! That smells AMAZING!” and it does! It could not be lemonier! A word of warning on the smell though, I loved it but after a quick google search for other reviews it seems that the smell is an acquired taste so give this stuff a sniff before you buy a pot just to make sure you think it’s as delicious smelling as I did.
The cream is very, very, very thick, in fact I think it’s the thickest cream I have ever used and it’s very greasy, for this reason I’ve found it’s best to use when I have got a bit of time to play with, that way I can massage a little in to my cuticles and fingers then just sit around and let it soak in. Before bed is also another good time to slap a bit on.
And the most important thing, it works wonders on dry skin. I didn’t just use this on my cuticles; I used it on my whole hands (largely cause each time I applied it I forgot how little was needed and ended up with loads to spread around) and feet. I didn’t use it every day because I found I didn’t need to however if I hadn’t used it for a couple of days I could tell. It really softens up dry skin, I used it a couple of times a week on my heels and it was wonderful, leaving me feeling rather proud of my nice soft and lemony smelling feet every time I slipped on a pair of flip flops!
Thanks Lizzy for your brilliant review – so what does everyone else think of Lemony Flutter?
