Lizzy’s Review – Lush Lemony Flutter Cuticle Cream 50g

by Annabella on July 21, 2011 · 18 comments

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?

Did you know you can use lemony flutter on lips too.
It really is the multi tasking product.
Plus the pot lasts for ages too.
Win. :) :):)

I’ve never tried this, but I think you’ve sold me! I also admire lush for their morals/ethics behind the brand so buying their products is always a preference of mine.

I love love love this stuff and it’s also on my “to review” list. The scent reminds me of a sweet that was out years ago, it might have been sour chewits or something. I actually use this on my heels more often than not and it never fails to make them lovely and soft. The pot lasts an absolute age aswell! x

Thanks for your comments Lindsay – mmm maybe I shouldn’t have given this to Lizzy my heels could do with some lemony softness. :D

Sounds like I need to give this a try, my nails have been rather neglected recently and could do with a moisturising treat! x

Thx for this great review. I’m actually not really into hand cream but reading that it can also be used for the lips and heels makes it a whole new contender. Next time I stroll into lush, I’ll give it a tasting. I also had a quick look at the reviews on the german website and it seems that due to the lemony smell people use it to keep to the flies away from their horses…. oh dudes… ????… :-O

Hello A4F! Mmm I guess Lemony Flutter really is a multiple use product! You can probably put it on your cat or dog’s paw pads too!

this is such a classic isn’t it and yet it’s something I have never tried.
I would love to purchase a mini sample before purchasing a big fat pot x

You should see if Lush will decant a bit into a little pot for you. It is a shame they don’t do samples!

Hey Anabella, I noticed you reviewed Ocean Salt a while ago too – did you know if you combine a scoop of Lemony Flutter and Ocean Salt you get the most awesome, moisturising scrub? It’s great for elbows, knees, heels etc. Love your blog btw!
