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.
