This is one of the best hand creams I have found! Many that I have tried don't retain the moisturised feeling for very long, however this cream really lasts and locks in the hydrated, supple feeling for days to come. Also good for elbows, feet, etc. Not overly sticky or residue leaving, which I love!
Some of the ingredients do harden in cold temperatures, but once on your skin and getting the body heat they will absorb into skin quite quickly.
Burt's Bees have a number of hand creams on the market, and this is my favourite of them all.
Unlike their jar hand creams, this formula comes in a very handbag-friendly tube with a flip-top lid. The tube is stylish, and modern in design.
But what really sets this hand cream apart from the rest is the formula - it's lush, hydrating, and chock full of natural goodness.
It's a vivid yellow colour and surprisingly lightweight, given the rich ingredients - Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter & Sesame Oil dominate the list, so you'd think it would be a thick formula, but happily the opposite is true.
The formula only needs a little bit applied, and it absorbs readily. It has a gorgeous, herbal aroma, undoubtedly as a result of the inclusion of Rosemary in the formula.
I am currently using this cream regularly each day, maybe 3 - 5 times daily. My hands are loving this cream, and my usually brittle nails are growing, and getting so strong I am needing to file them. This never happens with my nails, so this cream is truly working wonders!
I highly recommend this miracle cream, and will definitely be buying it again. It's brilliant!!
Burt's Bees' Shea Hand Repair is made for someone with incredibly dry and cracked hands or for some of us that get really dry during winter.
The product smells like shea so you know it's the real natural ingredient.
This hand repair is really hard to get out of the tube, you have to squeeze really hard and hold that squeeze for awhile. So it's really, really thick and sometimes the hand repair separates from the oil and cream.
But if you can get over the above, the hand repair really is incredibly moisturising. It does keep the hands and any other dry patches of skin sane and happy.
this is a really beautiful hand cream, rich and lush and smells divine. I love burts bees products and always use their lip products with great results, this hand cream is no difference, silky soft it glides on easily and sinks in immediately. It feels nice and light and is not greasy, a huge plus, it leaves hands super soft, nourished and perfectly moisturised.This is a great product for dry skin and to protect hands and nails from drying out. I love this and would recommend it
Burt's Bees Shea Butter Hand Cream has a lovely rich texture which moisturises hands perfectly without making them oily. I suffer from very dry skin and cuticles, most especially in winter, so always I make sure I have a tube available in my handbag and desk drawer. Wonderful product!
This is a super rich and effective hand cream from Burt's Bees. However it's not always the pleasant to use.
The cream itself is quite thick and can be tricky to squeeze out of the tube in the colder weather. It is also seems to separate easily into a solid part and a slightly greasy liquid part. It can be tricky to rub into the skin as the solid slides around on the liquid rather than sinking into your hands. It is also not the most pleasant smelling.
All of the above makes it sound like the world's worst hand cream, but if you can overlook those issues (and perhaps just use it at night) you will get it beautifully smooth and nourished hands. Because it does work, and work really well.
