Something lemony about it

I don’t think many people know this but I have a major obsession with nail polish. I’m fascinated with the myriad of colours they come in and how pretty they make our fingers (and toes) look. Having said that, I don’t wear them all the time. I just can’t resist buying them. I’m totally in awe of those bloggers who own hundreds and hundreds of bottles of nail polishes. I mean, wow. I’d be like a child in a candy shop if I ever had the chance to see their collections.

Speaking of candy shop, I recently bought a cuticle cream which is highly recommended by several nail bloggers – Burt’s Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream.

I’ve never written a post on beauty products before but I like this cream so much that I had to blog about it. Despite having the word “butter” in its name, the cream is not greasy at all. As you can probably tell from the picture, the product is more of a balm than a cream. It gets absorbed easily into the skin and it doesn’t leave an oily mess on your fingers (I’m looking at you, OPI cuticle oil). But what I like most about this product is the lemon scent. It instantly reminds me of the lemon-flavoured chewy candy I used to eat when I was a child – Sugus. Remember Sugus?

These individually wrapped candies used to come packed in a rectangular tube. Any idea if they’re still being sold in Singapore? The lemon ones come into mind whenever I catch a whiff of the cream. I must confess I’m in love with the scent and I hope I’ll be able to get rid of my peeling cuticles with this cream for me to tinker with my nail polishes. I got my Burt’s Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream from Sephora at $12, by the way.
