    This is a beautiful little balm type formula in a cute little tin. I do find it a bit annoying to get the actual lid off the tin but once I manage to pry it open the beautiful rich lemon scent bowls me over :) A little bit goes a long way and although initially it is a bit greasy it soon appears to absorb. It leaves my nails and fingers smooth and moisturised. I like that it is natural and therefore very gentle and would be perfect for anyone with dry chapped skin around their nails. As for results I have not had any success, but I think my nails need a sheer miracle to make them grow, lol. It is a lovely natural alternative to more expensive brands on the market and it is great to support a fantastic Aussie company.

    Love this miracle in a tin. The lemon scent smells gorgeous (I often open the tin to get a smell!). I apply this at night to my cuticles and the results are amazing. They smooth and soften my cuticles and repair them in a matter of days. A little goes a long way and the tin with last for years. I love how this is 95% natural and will definitely repurchase.

    Love this!

    Sinks in very fast (I can paint my nails an hour later), keeps cuticles soft, and has a lovely lemony scent.

    This product is amazing! My favourite thing about it is the scent-I’m a sucker for anything lemon.This product is the best thing when my cuticles are rough and dry. A little goes a long way and the product lasts for ages. I love the vintage looking tin. All in all another winner product from burt’s bees.

    I don’t know what I did before I had this product. I used to put hand cream on every night while in bed, primarily for my cuticles but once I found this, the creams have no chance! It’s awesome, smells beautiful, and absorbs quickly. Awesome!

    I rub this creme on my nails for a couple of minutes each nail a couple of times a week and it leaves my cuticles very soft and nourished. It helps strengthen my nails also. it is a bit greasy, but i just rub it in before bed, put on some hand lotion and cotton gloves to facilitate absorption. then wake up with beautiful hands the next day

  • Posted by: katiekates Devotee // Mon, 4 April 2011 10:07pm

    and it smells amazing. absolutely love the smell!

    I love this cuticle balm. The tin is gorgeous and reusable, the scent is divine and it really does work. A little goes a long way, I like to use it before bed so I dont get it on anything else.

  • Posted by: roxymisha Master Fan // Sun, 8 May 2011 03:24pm

    The balm comes in a cute, handy sized tin. It has a beautiful lemon scent which is one of my favourite scents so I was very keen to try this product. I was somewhat disappointed the first couple of times I used this as the balm was very hard and it took a few days for it to soften enough for me to use it. I have used it for a few weeks every night massaging it into my cuticles and nails instead of my usual cuticle cream and I have not been overly impressed with the results. Yes, it absorbs quite well but it is not as nourishing as I had hoped.

  • Posted by: beautyaddict_xo Master Fan // Sun, 15 May 2011 04:44pm

    Amazing! I got this as part of a burt’s bees pack and I have to say it really works in nourishing dry cuticles and skin. Also, it smells divine. Primpers- get it now!

  • Posted by: swoopingbuzzards Master Fan // Wed, 1 June 2011 05:11pm

    I used this when I was trying to stop biting my nails and skin and grow out acrylic nail damaged nails. It moisturised my nails so they stopped peeling as much and it made my nails less brittle. It also moisturised my cuticles and surrounding skin so it stopped me getting hang nails. It is a bit greasy so it’s best used before bed or when you’re watching tv or a movie or just sitting around.

  • Posted by: lovetoplay Master Fan // Thu, 2 June 2011 02:28pm

    A lovely little pick-me-up which not only smells fresh and lemony to my delighted senses but it also works hard to comfort and smooth my cuticles and nail area. A fancy little tin which feels cute and special to have in my handbag or in my bedside drawer. One of my very fave Burt’s Bees products and I can highly recommend this one for the sheer joy of it!

  • Posted by: samgrace Devotee // Tue, 28 June 2011 09:05pm

    Every girl should own this product. It’s magical. Perfect for dry, cracked or peeling cuticles on fingers and toes. I also use it on my elbows when they’re dry. Lovely smell, and it’s not to sticky. Soaks in quite quickly.

  • Posted by: satchel Newbie // Tue, 28 June 2011 11:00pm

    This is the PERFECT cuticle cream! Smells delicious and absorbs so quickly. Really good to keep in your bag.

  • Posted by: keppers Devotee // Thu, 7 July 2011 08:28am

    All I know is that this smells divine and makes my fingers smell yummy and feel soft. You can’t really go wrong with this product on any dry patch of skin really.

  • Posted by: shelld79 Enthusiast // Sun, 28 August 2011 05:01pm

    I’ve found this product to be really easy to use and it’s surprising as to how little you actually need to apply.
    I like the concept of the tin as well as I’ve had other cuticle creams that come in a squeezy tube that I just haven’t found as easy to use.
    The only reason I don’t give this product 5 stars is the lemon scent. To me it’s not really a smell that I associate with my hands.
    This definitely makes my cuticles and my nails feel healthier, I’ve even starting using it on my toes as summer is not too far away along with open toes shoes!

  • Posted by: Knyholm Master Fan // Wed, 31 August 2011 03:31pm

    is a very moisturising crème, so a little goes a very long way, so a great value for money. Having used this for just a few days, my cuticles are already looking a lot healthier. I also love that its stated how many percent of the ingredients are natural. Will definitely buy this product again.

  • Posted by: Louise-1295043242 Master Fan // Sat, 3 September 2011 01:14pm

    Love it!

    Smells like a yummy lemon meringue pie, very fresh and natural scented…
    the creme is creamy and a tad oily, which is what you want for a cuticle as it sinks in deeply and stops the dry bits around your nails getting worse..

    price is great, I got this in a burt’s bees pack which was great value too!

    the only un positve thing i can say is sometimes it’s hard to get the lid off (particularly if you fingers are a litte greasy) due to its small size and lid shape, but that’s not really anything against the product! :)

    If your cuticles are in need, this is the best one on the market that i’ve used!

  • Posted by: misschris Master Fan // Sat, 8 October 2011 10:49pm

    I love the gorgeous little tin this cuticle creme comes in, it’s just soo cute and very handy for my handbag. As for the creme, it seems more like a balm to me, but nonetheless it is gorgeous. The lemon smell is soo nice and not fake smelling, and lingers on my fingers for a while afterwards.. I do tend to sniff it, as I love lemon scented things.
    My fingers are left felling soft after use, and with continued use the overall condition of my nails/cuticles has definately improved. The best thing is that you really only use the smallest amount each time, so one tin will last for AGES!
    I love the fact that it’s a natural product, and I will definately be buying this again when it runs out.

  • Posted by: VivaLaVicki Master Fan // Tue, 25 October 2011 04:34pm

    Smells divine, sinks into the cuticle quickly and all natural! Burt’s Bees Cuticle Creme is an all over winner!

  • Posted by: Catherine-1336107829 Enthusiast // Fri, 25 May 2012 01:10pm

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE this stuff. The tin is always in my bag and i’m constantly rubbing it into my fingers and nail beds. It turns my fingers from sore, chapped, chipped and dry to supple, soft and smooth. I don’t know of another product that works this well, and smells as good!

  • Posted by: Hannah-1335172634 Supporter // Sat, 18 August 2012 07:45pm

    The tin is so cute and the scent is just wonderful! It makes me smile every time I use it and I can’t stop smelling it! It’s good to keep by your bed and apply it just before you go to sleep because I find that it’s a little greasy. Not in a bad way, I just prefer to let it sink in and work its magic overnight.

  • Posted by: melg Master Fan // Mon, 10 September 2012 12:20pm

    Fantastic product. The little tin is so cute and fits in my purse perfectly. The balm is a little greasy when it is first applied but sinks in quickly. Does a great job. And the smell is amazing!

  • Posted by: diva89 Master Fan // Thu, 13 September 2012 02:05pm

    I use the Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream every night before I go to bed. This cuticle cream claims to ‘help maintain strong and healthy finger nails’. I can honestly say it does that very well. This product fixed my damaged and dry cuticles after one use. It is absolutely amazing. Plus it smells really good! The product comes in a cute tin which is perfect for having in your handbag or on your bedside table. Give it a try, your hands will thank you for it!

  • Posted by: bluebird Master Fan // Sun, 9 December 2012 06:54pm

    This is a fantastic product for keeping one’s nails and cuticles looking fabulous. The product is a lemon scented yellow balm packaged in a gorgeous tin with cute botanical illustration of lemons..very vintage looking. The product goes a long way so only a small amount is needed and I like to apply it to my cuticles at night last thing before bed to give it time to absorb.

    It definitely makes a difference to my cuticles and the skin around my nails looking smooth and hydrated. Full marks!

  • Posted by: rohie Supporter // Tue, 15 January 2013 03:55pm

    Cute little tin, easy to remember to carry with you. Love the smell – not too overpowering. Cream sometimes feels a little gritty but works great and feels very luxurious!

  • Posted by: Its_Jess Master Fan // Wed, 16 January 2013 11:52pm

    This is a great product! I found the lid a little difficult to remove at first but other than that I have no complaints! It smells amazing and does its job – after using my cuticles are moisturised and they don’t feel greesy. can also feel that my nails are strengthened as a result of using, I’ve had far less chips since I’ve started using this! 4/5 just because the tin can be a little tricky!

  • Posted by: KitschSnitch Enthusiast // Sat, 26 January 2013 09:51pm

    I love this product! It makes your cuticles really soft and it smells amazing! I often use it just because I like the smell. It lasts a long time and is definitely worth the money. The only negative is that sometimes the tin can be hard to open.

  • Posted by: Sparkles17 Master Fan // Wed, 13 February 2013 05:05pm

    Am a big fan of hand creams and this is one of my favourite hand products. It sinks in quickly into my skin really conditions my nails and makes them nice and soft. Absolutely adore the lemony fragrance smells fresh and natural.

  • Posted by: daylight dancer Master Fan // Thu, 14 February 2013 07:59am

    I’m an ex nail biter. So when I started to grow my nails I found that they were quite soft. They broke easily and we’re very flexible. Do I was looking for a product that would nourish and make my nails stronger. I then won the burts bees cuticle cream one day. And now that I’ve tried it I love it too bits.
    It comes in a really cute vintage tin. Its really handbag friendly due to its size. It fits into the palm of my hand.
    It has the most intoxicating aroma of lemons. It smells so yummy. The cream itself can be quite firm when the weather is cold and then softer when it’s hotter.
    I run my fingertip into the cream and then rub and massage into my cuticles one at a time.
    It feels really nice massaging in. I try not to use to much so that im not left with greasy fingers.
    This cuticle cream is definitely helping in maintaining healthy cuticles. My nail bed has never looked so good.
    Plus my nails are firming up due to the extra care. I love this cuticle cream and will continue to buy.

  • Posted by: claud.st Enthusiast // Thu, 7 March 2013 02:14pm

    Tried this product over the past few weeks. Using it about twice a week. The smell is lovely and fresh. It’s really softening. However ladies with longer nails be careful with the pot or you will dig out so much more than you need.

    Smells delicious and softens cubicles and hands.

  • Posted by: brookieliz Master Fan // Thu, 28 November 2013 07:43pm

    Natural, smells delicious, leaves cuticles beautifully soft and manageble and extremely portable in it’s durable little tin. Perfect equally for the handbag and the bedside table, it certainly deserves 5 stars in my book.

  • Posted by: Beautybee Master Fan // Sun, 1 December 2013 08:41pm

    I absolutely love this cuticle cream. The lemon scent is just divine. It comes in a small tin with a pull off lid. I apply it every evening and I find that it really nourishes my cuticles and keeps my nails looking good even throughout the dry winter months. Great product!

  • Posted by: Claire88 Master Fan // Sun, 11 May 2014 04:53pm

    I love the vintage tin packaging, although it is sometimes a bit of an effort to open it especially if my hands are a bit slippery after applying hand cream, but it looks cute and the compact size is perfect for traveling.

    The product is like a balm and is waxy in appearance, the scent is of lemons…which I love! I have this on my bedside table and I diligently massage this onto my cuticles most nights before I go to bed.

    I am happy to report that my nails are getting stronger and they are peeling less which is great. I also used to get white dry patches on my nails which have disappeared so it appears the cuticle cream is doing it’s job.

    Overall a great product which I would definitely buy again. It’s also very economical , I have been using this for months and I haven’t even put a dent in the tin!

  • Posted by: joeychoi Enthusiast // Fri, 25 July 2014 10:43pm

    Thank god i discovered this product because it is one of the the best and most effective cuticle cremes. i realised a huge difference on my cuticle just applying it twice a week! Wonderful product and i will definitely repurchase !

  • Posted by: essie Enthusiast // Tue, 5 August 2014 04:35pm

    I swear by this product! Hydrates my cuticles and nails, making them look healthy and maintained without much effort. The tin is absolutely gorgeous, and is convenient to keep in your handbag to use almost anywhere.
    As someone who wears nail polish 99% of the time, I use this everyday to keep my hands looking healthy!

  • Posted by: brinsley Master Fan // Tue, 5 August 2014 10:45pm

    This is a fantastic little product! I have just started my 3rd tin of this wonderful product. It is a tiny little tin container but it lasts and lasts. I love the way it’s packaged but I do have a bit of trouble getting the lid back on after using it. I don’t have trouble taking it off thought. It had a gorgeous lemon scent and you only need to massage a tiny little bit of this around your cuticles, it just melts like butter around them and leaves my nails feeling very moisturised. I find when I use this that my nails are definitely stronger and don’t chip and flake as much. Love this Burt’s Bees product! 5 out of 5 from me 😀

  • Posted by: Shazam57 Enthusiast // Wed, 6 August 2014 07:38pm

    Don’t be fooled by this small tin – the content sure packs a punch! I have dry cuticles, especially in winter and sometimes moisturisers don’t help. This cuticle cream works wonders softening my cuticles and really hydrates and protects my nail area. It’s a perfect pocket size and I rub a little around my cuticles when they’re dry. I LOVE the smell of this cream.

  • Posted by: lolariu Supporter // Tue, 30 September 2014 06:15pm

    I have had this product in my handbag makeup kit for ages and still love opening the lid to that lovely lemony smell and nourishing balm. The creme smooths on and soaks in quickly leaving moisturised, sweet smelling cuticles and what’s not to love about that?

  • Posted by: happydays Master Fan // Wed, 24 June 2015 11:17pm

    A very good and nourishing and affordable cuticle cream which smells like real lemons and isn’t artificial smelling at all. I only use a little bit and massage it into my cuticles and it softens all rough edges on my nails.
    It’s a small cute tin which fits into my bag easily and is very convenient to use.
