Project Focus 10 Collab – Week 5 Update & Review

Hello, hello! Can you believe that it is week 5 already?

Project Focus 10 is a Collab that I am doing with three lovely fellow bloggers: Ingrid from Curly Spring Blossom, Stashy from Stash Matters, and Joy from Styled with Joy. Here’s the lowdown on PF10:

10 different products that have been forgotten or neglected, or that we just want to use up, that have not been reviewed on our blogs before (but are still on the market). Over the course of 10 weeks  we will make an effort to try to use them, and review one of the products weekly (every Monday), and update on our progress on each of the 10 products over the 10 week period.

Burt's Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream

Today I’m reviewing the Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream from Burt’s Bees. Here’s what it says on the Burt’s Bees website:

Give your needy nails a helping hand. Nourish and moisturise nails and cuticles with this intensive, natural treatment. A touch of lemon oil makes your nails smell incredibly clean, healthy and beautiful, naturally.

And here’s the ingredient list since it was nearly impossible to photograph it:

prunus amygdalus dulcis (sweet almond) oil, cera alba (beeswax, cire d’abeille), citrus medica limonum (lemon) peel oil, tocopheryl acetate, theobroma cacao (cocoa) seed butter, euphorbia cerifera (candehlla) wax, beta-carotene, rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary) leaf extract, tocopherol, helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed oil, glycine soja (soybean) oil, canola oil (huile de colza), olus (vegetable oil, huile vegetale), limonene

My experience: I’ve been really good about using the Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream several times every day and I’ve made quite a dent in it as you can see from the photo with the black background (taken this morning). It is keeping my cuticles from drying out and getting raggy which they are prone to do in the dry and cold winter months. I love the lemony scent so much!

Update on the remaining products:

Project Focus 10 CollabMakeup:

Focus10 Makke-up2

Hard Candy Primer – reviewed week 1, will never use again after my bad reaction.

Urban Decay Naked 3 palette – used 1x, I only wore full makeup twice last week, and ended up using my new Zoeva Cocoa Blend palette one of the days.

Tarte Amazonian Clay Bronzer – used 1x, I’m quite pale this time of year, but when I’m sick, I’m ghostly, so this was a little too warm toned for me, even used sparingly.

Essence Lash Mania Mascara (Waterproof) – did not use, reviewed week 4

Makeup Tools:

Project Focus 10 Collab

Georgie Beauty False Lashes and Adhesive – did not use

Wayne Goss Brush 01 – reviewed week 2, used daily

Haircare and Bodycare:

Not Your Mother’s Way to Grow Shampoo – used 1x, I accidentally used a different shampoo one morning

Not Your Mother’s Way to Grow Conditioner – used 1x, I accidentally used a different conditioner one morning.

Living Proof Prime Style Extender – reviewed week three, used 2x, nearly finished the tube, maybe two or three uses left.

Overall: I think I made ok progress despite still being sick over the past week, and not really wearing much makeup unless I was leaving my house to camouflage the plague pallor.

Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day! ❤

  1. I’ve had this and I LOVE the tart lemon scent! The biggest downside of this for me is the tin – really hard to open and very tricky to close when your fingers are all greasy from the product.
    Hehe you’re like me with the eye shadow palette – a new toy comes to town and the other one is forgotten – oops!

  2. As much as I pamper my face, I’m the worst when it comes to my hands … They look awful & need some TLC
