Review: Burt's Bees cuticle cream

Pozdravljeni!

Kot morda že veste sem imela priložnost preizkusiti izdelke iz trgovine Ecco-verde. Na razpolago sem imela budget, katerega sem potem zapravila za poljubne izdelke. Burt's bees krema za obnohtno kožico je eden izmed teh izdelkov.

Hi everyone!

As you know, I got the opportunity from Ecco-Verde to try a couple of items from their store. I was able to choose them myself. Burt's bees cuticle cream is one of those.

Sama že nekaj let uporabljam Lushev Lemony flutter za obnohtno kožico. O burt's bees sem slišala mnogo dobrega, tudi to da je njihov balzam za obnohtno kožico fenomenalen. Zato me je zanimalo ali se lahko primerja z mojo stalnico.


I do use Lush's Lemony Flutter for a couple of years now, but I did hear a bunch of great stuff about Burt's Bees cuticle cream. I wanted to see how it could compare with LF (lemony flutter).

Izgled/embalaža: Izdelek je pakiran v majhno, okroglo aluminijasto embalažo z nalepko na vrhu. Design ni nič posebnega, za limono narisano na embalaži sem sprva mislila da je kakav! Še vseeno embalaža opravlja svoje delo in je tudi zelo vzdržljiva in lahka. Enostavno se je nosi v torbici kot hitra rešitev za nego obnohtne kožice. Zaradi svoje majhnosti je zelo praktična.

Packaging:
The product comes in a small aluminum tin with a sticker on the top & bottom. It's nothing special, not extremely pretty but it does its job really well. Because of its size and sturdiness it is very travel-friendly. I take it with me in my bag as a quick cuticle fix.

Tekstura in vonj: Predstavljala sem si, da bo vse skupaj bolj kot krema in manj kot balzam. Verjetno zaradi tega, ker gor piše krema za obnohno kožo. No, pa ni krema. Je balzam. Torej zelo lahek, masten in preprosto mazljiv balzam. Vonj ima po limonini travi (tista bonbončkasta osladna verzija), kateri mi res ne odgovarja ampak je na srečo veliko bolj blag kot Lushev (po katerem mi dela slabo, bah!).

Texture and scent:
I was thinking that this is more like a cream, than a balm. It is actually just like a lip balm, same texture. Really creamy and rich, but ... you know, a balm. It is very oily, light and it spreads very easily. Unlike like LF that is a pain to get it on evenly. 

The scent is lemony, and I really don't like lemony scents. But if I could survive LF's scent (extremely heavy and artificial), I can survive this one even easier. It is lemony but lighter and sweeter. Like a lemony candy? 

Uporaba: Izdelek se nanese na čisto obnohtno kožico ter se ga vtre v kožo. Preprosto, kajne? Balzam se hitro vpije in pusti obnohtno kožico, ki izgleda OK. Nič več boleče suha. Ni nobenega packanja, nobenega drgjenja po obnohtni kožici dlje časa kot bi bilo treba. Vse skupaj je tako enostavno, kot da bi nanesli balzam za ustnice.

Use:
The use is plain and simple. You apply it on clean cuticles and rub it in. It absorbs quickly and leaves a hydrated cuticle behind. 



Učinek: Pričakovala sem, da ne bo efekta, ker je.. balzam in ne krema. No, zmotila sem se. Deluje in pomaga pri izsušeni/strgani/nasplošno v slabem stanju obnohtni kožici. Učinek je viden takoj, toda po kakšnem dnevu ne-uporabe se stanje hitro poslabša. Ne vem zakaj je temu tako, pri Lushevi verziji nimam teh problemov (obnohtna kožica ostane v enako dobrem stanju tudi več dni po prenehanju uporabe). Ampak dokler se balzam uporablja je stanje obnohtne kožice občutno bolje, kot brez njega.


Effect:
I thought there would be no effect because it is a balm and not a cream. Well, I was wrong. It does help with dried/broken cuticle skin. The effect is visible the moment you stop rubbing it in the cuticles and stays there for a while. The effect disappears if you don't use it for a couple of days (unlike with LF, which seems to be more hydrating?), but as long as you use it, it does well.

+ priročna embalaža
+ svoje delo pravi izvrstno
+ se ga porabi zelo malo

+ comes in a sturdy tin
+ does its job well
+ a small bit.. goes a long way!

- bonbončkasto limonast vonj, brr!
- ni krema, toda balzam 

- the scent, oh god the scent (lemon candy scent)!
- it's a balm, I was expecting a cream

Priznam, da nisem pričakovala dosti. Upala sem, ampak nisem pričakovala. Izdelek je dober, sploh ker se ga hitro nanese in tudi pozabi nanj (Lushev je v obliki težke kreme, pri kateri traja da se jo razmaže in še potem traja da se vonja znebim.. brr), tako da je moja stalnica v torbici. Všeč mi je, ker ima hiter učinek ki traja in se ne izpere ob prvem pranju rok (kot sem pričakovala). Definitivno bom uporabljala dalje, toda v kombinaciji z Lushevo kremico za obnothno kožico, ker se mi zdi da bo tako boljši efekt (ponoči težjo verzijo, čez dan pa balzam). Za vse tiste, kateri ne marate Lemony flutterja, je ta balzam super, ter tudi za tiste kateri želite nekaj lažjega kot lushev LF. Priporočam zaradi enostavne uporabe brez packanja in praktične embalaže.

I confess, I didn't expect much from it. I was hoping, but not expecting. The product is good, especially since it is easy to apply and it absorbs quickly, leaving nice cuticles behind. I do prefer it to Lush's Lemony flutter, but I was disappointed when I realized it is in a balm form and not a cream. 
Oh, and I really dislike the lemony scent, everywhere. Blah! 
I think this is perfect for everyone that dislike LF and want good looking cuticles.
