Lush Lemony Flutter




Ever since I started blogging around 2 years ago, there has been one product that has been lauded but that I had resisted trying out…until now. Behold the glory of Lush Lemony Flutter.

This is also a momentous occasion because I finally visited a Lush store, and I hate myself for it as I now want everything they make. To be honest, I didn’t even know that there was a Lush store close to me and I actually stumbled upon it when I hunted down Brown Sugar at Neiman Marcus. Once again, Tom Ford is responsible for leading me down ANOTHER road of cosmetics perdition. Are you ready to hear what I think about Lush Lemony Flutter? Well, put on your conversation caps because I’ve got a lot to say.
I didn’t take a picture of the virgin container, so excuse the fact that I’ve already dipped my pudgy fingers into it. Well, first of all I want to say that I was very worried about what this product would smell like because if you’ve read about my issues with scented products, you know this is a big deal to me. A VERY BIG DEAL. Well, this product smells lemony, of course, but it also has another subtle scent…a little bit like gasoline. Doesn’t lemony gasoline sound delightful?! In addition to that delicious lemony gasoline scent, I also detected another scrumptious scent: corn tortillas. Ok, ok…hold up. Yes, you read that right: corn tortillas. Since I basically eat corn tortillas every day, I think I am pretty qualified in the science of tortilla-ology so this seems pretty accurate to me.  Despite the caucophany of scents, I didn’t hate the smell of the product which is pretty awesome. Secondly, the consistency is very thick so a little bit goes a long way. When I tried it out at the store, the associate slathered some on my cuticles and it felt like I had dipped my hands in lard. Even though the product feels very greasy, it soaked into my skin within a few minutes. Unfortunately, I felt that the product left a film behind which was very bothersome so I have resolved to only use it at night as an intense overnight treatment.

Have you had a chance to try Lush Lemony Flutter? I am glad I finally got this because I always read about it online. Since I’m kind of a cheapskate, I was a little surprised that this container was like $17+ tax. That’s some expensive cuticle butter! Because it’s so thick, you only need a tiny bit so I can see this lasting a looooong time. Bailey from Partial To Polish (check out her blog cause she’s awesome) had mentioned to me that her Lemony Flutter had gone rancid so she had to throw it away. Maybe keeping it in the fridge will extend its life. Have you guys had yours go rancid? Man, I’d be so pissed–especially if it was still fairly full. Well, I hope you’re all doing well and that you have enjoyed your weekend. Thanks for stopping by today, and I will talk to you soon.

  1. I’ve had a lot of lush in general last way past it’s exp date, refrigeration can def help. I love this cuticle butter and it does last ages! Also wash your hands be fore use to reduce contamination or even take out smaller portions and keep the big one in the fridge. Sample jars from the store are perfect for this

  2. What is in it that goes rancid? Curious. I am addicted to Bur’ts Bee’s Lemon Butter Cuticle cream and Palmer’s Cocobutter hand cream. They are the only things that help my dry hands. I heard about this, but I never tried it. I’m terrified of the ‘rancid’ claim, as Burt’s Bees has never done me wrong, and have 3 tins of it (one for the PC Desk, one in my purse, one for work). I don’t think I will be switching anytime soon…

    1. It must be the oils in it. My CND Solar Oil has gone rancid before. I really hope this lasts. I’ve tried Burts Bees Lemon Butter before but I found the scent too overwhelming. I did like how it worked, though. I think that once you find a product that you like and that works for you, you have to hold on to it. 🙂

  3. I hope mine does not go RANCID! that would totally disgust me lol. I’ll just bring it to the office and force everyone to use some daily

  4. I loved my Lemony Flutter at first but it went rancid after only 2 months, a year before the expiration date 🙁 I took it back to the store and the sales person was quite rude about it. He said he couldn’t tell the difference and told me it was fine. Another customer there agreed with me though that it smelled horrible. I switched to 365 days of color sunny’s miracle balm and am on my 3rd pot now. She has tons of different scents to choose from, so I definitely won’t go back to Lush.

    1. After 2 months?! Oh man…I would be pissed and I would demand my money back. That’s just bunk that it lasted less than a fart in the wind. Thanks for the recommendation! I may look into those in the future. 🙂

    1. Thanks, Lisa. Glad to hear you’re liking it as well. Your hands and cuticles always look great so it looks like it’s doing a great job for you.

  5. I love my Lemony Flutter!
    I bought it about 18 months ago and I still have at least quarter of my tub left.
    It does leave a bit of a film, but I put it on, wait about 10 mins and than wipe my hands on some kitchen towel and this does the trick.

    Nothing keeps my cuticles in better shape than this stuff!

    1. That’s a good suggestion. I am trying to only use it at night with some cotton gloves. I just find it hard to keep my gloves on through the night.

  6. I love Lush but haven’t tried this cuticle cream yet. I do know that some of their products have expiration dates because of their fresh-ish ingredients, so I’d have to be sure to check the expiration date before purchasing to figure out if I’d really be able to use it all before it went “bad” – Thanks for the review!

    1. I went to lush for the first time a couple of months ago. I really liked it but wowza those prices were steep. I can’t see myself purchasing stuff there on the regular because of that. I do want one of their facial scrubs, though. 🙂

    1. I started doing that yesterday so hopefully it will last me a good long time. Hopefully my brother won’t try to use it as dip or something crazy. haha

  7. I loved mine at first, but then realized I wasn’t going to be able to get close to finished with it before the expiration date. The consistency got a little weird on me too after a while, but it didn’t expire yet. Afterwards I ended up trying Burt’s Bees Lemon Butter because it is considerably less expensive and I’ve heard good things about it. So my verdict is, as much as I do love Lush products I much prefer Burts Bees Lemon Butter over Lemony Flutter.

    1. Now I’m thinking the same thing: I am never going to be able to finish this thing even in a year. I don’t think I want to use it elsewhere (knees, elbows, heels) the way other people recommend because it’s way too greasy for that.

  8. I have also never tried this supposed miracle product…but I think I am OK with that. I think I prefer oils, and I’ve heard this smells like band-aids…eeehhh, I’m not too jazzed about that. I’ve also heard it’s pretty much overnight only, which is OK, but if I’m spending like $20, I’d rather be able to get more usage out of it. Not to say I wouldn’t try it if I decided to spend the money…if it really works, I may be able to overlook all of those things!
    “Once again, Tom Ford is responsible for leading me down ANOTHER road of cosmetics perdition.” Hahaha! I have also completely avoided Lush, even though there is a store at the mall in town. DANGER, DANGER WILL ROBINSON!
    I will remember that you are the leading expert in tortilla-ology should I ever require those services.

    1. I say: don’t waste your $20. This product is nice, but not worth $20. I’d probably stick with my Solar Oil and the Barielle Hand creme with the gloves. I was all into Lush in the beginning and now I’m just meh about it. Totally overpriced in my opinion…says the woman who bought two Tom Fords with shitty formulas.
