One of my aims is to stop biting my nails. I haven't bitten them for around 3 weeks (I think?). I'm actually really surprised by how much they've grown already and I cannot wait to do some NOTD's with real nails for a change. Anyway, in spite of all this, the skin around my nails is still looking horrible. It's dry, and tends to bleed from where I subconsciouly pick the skin (ouch!).
I'd seen Lush's Cuticle Cream Butter before but never purchased it as I never cared too much about my nails/hands. Plus for £5.95, I wasn't happy with the small tub. However, a quick tutorial from the sales assistant had me feeling much better when he showed just how little you need to use. It will last me a lifetime! All you need to do is massage a very small amount into your cuticles and the skin around your nail.
My first reaction is that it looks like you've dipped your hands in oil at first (lemon scented oil that is...) and it felt a little greasy. However, after applying every night for just a few days, I could already see a difference. I had no dry skin and there was no dead skin to pick at. It also softened my cuticles and has left me feeling a lot happier about my nails.
Would I recommend it? Yes, I really really would. If you're doubtful, just try it out in the shop - Lush is one of the few shops with amazing customer service.
