How have I not written about this incredible stuff? I say that a lot as I go through my daily high maintenance routine, pulling up my Holy Grail items, and realize how little new stuff I have to acquire in order to share my beauty love & expertise. Heh heh, my beauty prodz hoarding tendencies are a whole other post….
Anyways, as we are all Mad Manicure Ladies in da hizzouse ( I am the mother Emilie of The Beauty School Dropouts, after all!) of course we take care of our hands. Lush Lemony Flutter Cuticle Butter is probably the best cuticle treatment that I’ve used as well as an amazing value. At around $15 for a 50g jar that will last you ages, your money is well spent. I remember the first time I used it grabbed a huge blob of product to rub in and it was almost enough to grease my whole body down. Use caution, dear reader, as Lemony Flutter is rich and concentrated and a wee bit goes a very long way. I like to use it at bedtime for transformed cuticles when I wake up. And it actually improves the looks of your hands immediately upon application as well. The zingy lemon scent makes your hands smell yummy & clean too.
One thing you need to know about a cuticle treatment and why they are so important- it is not just for the health and strength your cuticles but for your nails as well. A quality cuticle treatment is made of certain oils that have a certain molecular structure that can penetrate the nail bed, as well as a carrier for other oils. Oils also act as water repellers. Too much water in the nail bed area weakens the nail as it expands. Lemony Flutter is full of rich ingredients like avocado oil, shea butter, coconut oil, mango butter, glycerin flaxseed oil and lanolin. You know how wonky your nail shape becomes after a bath or doing the dishes? I actually hold my hands above the bath water when I soak. So- protect them and coat them with good stuff, like Lemony Flutter. You will see a huge difference in the health and appearance of your cuticles and nails.

LUSH products are available in their boutiques or you can shop online. You can even order a catalogue, if you are into that kind of thing.
