Review of LUSH Lemony Flutter Cuticle Butter

While I’m fickle about skin care and makeup, I’m devoted to the LUSH Floating Island bath melt.   When I last went to LUSH, I purchased several Floating Islands.  I also picked up LUSH’s Lemony Flutter Cuticle Butter, a first for me.

I love LUSH Lemony Flutter Cuticle Butter!  It’s a thick,thick cream for your cuticles. Lemon extract is first on the ingredient list, followed by emollient natural butters and oils. Lemon brightens the nails.

Ingredients:

Fresh Organic Lemon Infusion (Citrus limonum) , Shea Butter (Butyrospermum parkii) , Beeswax (Cera alba) , Lanolin , Soya Oil (Glycine Soja) , Cold Pressed Organic Avocado Oil (Persea gratissima) , Cold Pressed Organic Flaxseed Oil (Linum usitatissimum) , Mango Butter (Mangifera indica) , Extra Virgin Coconut Oil (Cocos nucifera) , Castor Oil (Ricinus communis) ,Fragrance , Cold Pressed Organic Wheatgerm Oil (Triticum vulgare) , Lemon Oil (Citrus limonum) , Lavender Oil (Lavandula hybrida) , Tagetes Oil (Tagetes minuta) , Chamomile Blue Oil (Matricaria Chamomilla) , Stearic Acid , Triethanolamine , Gardenia Extract (Gardenia jasminoides) , Cetearyl Alcohol , Citral ,Geraniol , Citronellol , Limonene , Linalool , Methylparaben ,Propylparaben

LUSH Lemony Flutter Cuticle Butter is the  best thing that I’ve found to treat my dry, ratty cuticles. It’s fun to use, because it smells so good.  When you compare this with Sally Hanson cuticle creams, for example, LUSH Lemony Flutter Cuticle Butter, at $17 for a 1.5-oz tub is a good value.

I like LUSH Lemony Flutter Cuticle Butter so much that I’ve added it to my favorite hand, foot, and nail products:

Spa Sonic® Skin Care System Face and Body Polisher Deluxe Kit

The Clarisonic is a covetable item, but many might balk at the price (over $100).  Other companies have jumped in to fill the void for less expensive products.

Spa Sonic® Skin Care System Face and Body Polisher Deluxe Kit

Spa Sonic® Skin Care System Face and Body Polisher Deluxe Kit

One of the these companies is EpiCare Ltd.   Its Spa Sonic® Skin Care System Face and Body Polisher Deluxe Kit consists of a unit and 5 heads.  The rundown:

  • 2 face brushes (approximately 1-1/2″ diameter)
  • 1 sponge head (approximately 1-1/2″ diameter)
  • 1 pumice stone head (approximately 1-1/2″ diameter)
  • 1 body brush (approximately 3″ diameter)

I have not tried the sponge head.  The face brush and the body brush have soft bristles and do a fine job of mechanical exfoliation.  I use the body brush on my upper arms, chest, and upper back, but it would also be great with a moisturizing wash to exfoliate the legs before shaving.  The pumice stone is rough: I prefer Microplane or the Revlon® Pedi-EXPERT™ Pedicure Kit, which is among my favorite hand, foot and nail products.  I follow up on the pumice stone with a finishing file and Amlactin lotion on my heels.

While the Clarisonic is rechargeable, the Spa Sonic® uses 4 AA batteries (which come with the kit).  This might be a drawback for those who don’t want battery waste.

The Spa Sonic® Skin Care System Face and Body Polisher Deluxe Kit costs $70 on the Spa Sonic® web site; however I found it through (someday we’ll find it) the Costco Connection magazine for $40 (shop costco.com for the Spa Sonic® Skin Care System Face and Body Polisher Deluxe Kit – good through May 31 or while supplies last).
