Sweet scents from Cuter Cuticles are always an excuse for sweet treats for props! So I was delighted to hear that the Indie Expo Canada exclusive from Cuter Cuticles was Lemon Cupcake. It is a scent that is available in their store if you order a custom (join the Cuter Cuticles fan group on Facebook to get a full list of custom scents), but the IEC exclusive comes with a lip gloss which you can’t buy. I only got two of these mini lemon cupcakes, he even swiped one when I was taking photos. You think a pack of 12 would last a day?
Cuter Cuticles Lemon Cupcake Cuticle Oil
Sammy’s cuticle oils are my go to oils. Cuter Cuticles Cuticle Oils are Jojoba Seed Oil based with additional oils and fragranced with parfum and/or essential oils depending on scent. They absorb quickly and a little goes a long way so they last.
The Lemon Cupcake scent in the oil is a tart lemon with a nice sweetness to it. It seems a bit more lemon than the barrier butter which is no where near as sweet scented as the lip gloss.
Cuter Cuticles Lemon Cupcake Barrier Butter
As mentioned, Cuter Cuticles Lemon Cupcake Barrier Butter is a little sweeter scented than the oil but it may be the shea butter and other goodies diluting the tartness a bit. Barrier Butters are amazing. While it does nourish, it also locks the moisture in to make it last leaving you with better looking cuticles (and elbows, heels and other dry skin).
Cuter Cuticles Lemon Cupcake Lip Gloss (IEC Exclusive)
Lip gloss is an exclusive to Indie Expo Canada but that is not to say that you may not see them from Sammy in the future. If you love Lemon Cupcake, you can get it in a lip balm though.
Cuter Cuticles Lemon Cupcake Lip Balm is a mix of oils, beeswax, Vitamin E, Stevia and flavour oils. It is a lot sweeter scented compared to the barrier butter and especially the oil. The flavour very mild, more sugar than lemon.
The oils sink into your lips so it doesn’t stay super shiny but leaves your lips with a nice sheen and feeling great. The wand is a nice length and didn’t pull on the lipstick I wore under it. Definitely hoping to see more of these from Sammy in the future.
