I bought this as a random present for my mother who suffers terribly with dry cuticals and often laments the condition of her nails. She has since said it is, and I quote, 'the BEST present anyones ever bought me' (I don't know if this says more about my present buying skills or about the poor standard of generosity from the general public). She uses it RELIGIOUSLY.

It is essentially a little pot of sorbet - it smells like all the zest and eccentricity of fresh potted lemons - dessert in a pot (its sometimes hard to forget that this isn't a food - especially as lemon is my favourite flavour of ice cream!). Its a soft and soothing cutical and nail balm, also championed as the saviour and soother of general rough parts, particularly knees and elbows. You only really need a very small amount of this as the rich, creamy, buttery texture literally melts into the hands. Again I must reiterate - this product is GOOD ENOUGH TO EAT!

The results are noticable immediately, your hands will feel soft and well and truly buttered straight away. I would advise using the product twice a day...perhaps more in winter, or if you are prone to rough, dry, straggly skin around the nails. Also, supposedly because of the bleaching effect of lemons, this whitens your nails (always a perk).

The only cons with the product are that, although its perfect as a small pot for hands and nails, if you do take a liking to using the product body wide, you will find its small stature just doesn't stretch fair enough. Again, as with most LUSH products, it is on the dear side, but does generally last a long time and do a fantastic job. One of the better cutical creams out there!

I rate this product 4.5 out of 5.
