Great but expires quicker than other hand cremes
I got this little sample size of Burt's Bees Almond Milk Beeswax Hand Creme from my mother, who got it in a pouch with other sample sized goodies from Walgreens. At first I really liked this hand creme, but as I went to use it last night - it smelt horrible and left my hands feeling greasy all night! I had to wash my hands 3 times to get the greasiness off and the nasty oil scent. I used to use this cream on my knuckles and elbows, and you only need a smidgen because it spreads out and goes a long way. I finished one sample jar and began to use the second one, but I guess they expire quicker than your normal hand creme would. I would say - if you need daily heavy creme to hydrate your dryness, this is perfect for you. Burt's Bees is known for their organic ingredients, sulfate free, paraben free, and phthalate free products. This product is great, but keep in mind it will expire and when it does it's not a pretty product. Retails at $9.00 Help for hard working hands. This super rich, all-natural hand cream is made with sweet almond oil and vitamin E to moisturize dry skin and beeswax to help seal and protect your hands from the elements. The sweet smell of almonds and milk reminds you to feed your skin with nourishing care. Smooth a small dollop of cream onto freshly washed hands. Use after every handwashing. Featured Ingredient: Sweet Almond Oil (prunus amygdalus dulcis) — Cold pressed from the dried kernels of the almond tree, this medium-weight oil is rich in oleic and linoleic acid, proteins and vitamin D, and is excellent for the skin, lips and nails.

absolutely love it. i use it year round and it makes my skin so soft. it gets absorbed by the skin quickly, doesn't feel oily or slimy, it's so nice! It really repairs skin and i'll be buying this forever.
Great winter moisturizer
I just bought this and it works wonders for my hands. Now that its winter my hands get so dry and cracked. This leaves my hands like new. The balm is a little oily and can take a minute to fully absorb but once you get use to that its great!
My hands for some reason have been getting so dry and pealing in the palms area and I would exfoliate it off and put on lotion and it never went away. Finally I was at walmart and saw this and decided to try it and I am so glad that I did my hands are better there still pealing a bit but this stuff has done wonders to my hands I put it on if I am just going to watch a movie or right before bed and when I wake up my hands feel so much better and not dry.
This sweet smelling, nongreasy hand creme is one of the bes Burts has. Best time to use is right before bed when you body is the most suseptable to moisture. The only better one would have to be the Banana one!
Need to use it more, good product
Let me preface this by saying I got this in a little mini-sampler kit EONS ago. As in early high school, so at least 5 or so years ago. I hadn't really used the kit at all, only here and there, mostly because the products had an all-natural oily feel, and I couldn't get past the texture. When I joined BL, I made it my quest to really give these babies a shot- even if that meant slathering the balms and salves on, before bed. In the past couple of months I started using the samples more than I ever did- but there are plenty more to go. I chucked the ones I rarely use in my MU rejects basket (which I delve into from time to time) and if I STILL can't get past the texture and they're not doing that much for me, I'll gift them or throw them away. I say throw away, only because I've had them for SO LONG, and they are not chock full of preservatives. I honestly don't mind using the samples when they're off though- I can't tell the difference, at least now. Because the texture kinda bothered me, I have barely used it, except for winter when my hands are soo dry that my knuckles crack. I can get over the texture nowadays more if I slather this on as a night creme for the hands. When I got it so long ago, I never thought of doing that. I might also use this as a heavy duty facial moisturizer on certain spots- the base of my brow/nose/eye area, for quick spot touch ups. After neglecting the milk and honey body lotion for so long and finally using it, I want to try to use this puppy up, if not more. For a small sample there is plenty of product and a little does go a long way (if you can spread it enough!) I have always liked the rich, delicious smell and color of the product. It does feel waxy and a little greasy, but again, I'm gonna try and get used to it. I would recommend getting this in one of their samplers like I did, if you're not sure you'll like it, or get it full sized if greasy balms don't bother you. If you get really dry hands/skin in the winter, this is great for that. Its like a heavy duty balm that will lock in moisture, instead of instantly absorb. Anyhoo, this winter, this will probably come in handy! (Pun intended! :D)
The Burt’s Bees beewax hand crème is a crème that does what it say’s it does. I like especially using this product at night before I go to bed. After I apply the product I put on my cotton gloves which allow my body heat and the heat of the gloves to penetrate into my skin and soften my hands even more. Once I awake in the morning my hands are extra soft. The smell is pleasant and a little product goes along way. This product can be a little greasy and in my opinion the product is a bit expensive but other than that this is really a good product.
Thick, nourishing hand balm.
I have tried this Hand Cream in a sample before and like all Burt’s Bees hand cream’s I can’t rave about them enough. I like the fact that it is actually more of a thick, waxy balm than a cream, which envelopes my hands in a protective shield that completely nourishes and cares for my particularly dry, overworked hands as it attempts to soften and rejuvenate the neglected skin, repairing damaged cuticles. Because it’s so rich and on the heavy side, this is probably the most hydrating hand cream I have ever used and helps make for silky soft skin with a younger-looking appearance. Whilst I do love everything about this ‘super balm’ it is still actually my least favourite of the Burt’s Bees hand creams! That is only because I am sensitive to certain fragrances and I’m not overly fussed on the somewhat fake perfume scent this strongly concedes. Some of the other versions are far more delectable, whereas this one is so strongly scented; it smells like a sickly sweet aniseed that is quite artificial, instead of natural, as it should be. I also don’t find any resemblance to almonds in the aroma, if it did I wouldn’t mind it at all, but this is just not it at all!!! Overall though, I would only deduct one point for the overbearing smell, the rest of the product, I dare say is near perfect and exactly what I look for in a hand cream
I'm in love with the smell. But it's really thick and greasy. I wish it was a little bit lighter. The jar is pretty small but you don't really need a lot anyway. It is kind of pricey, but in my opinion it's wroth it.
I love this products. It's quite thick on initial contact but it easily warms up and applies easily once you put on your skin. It smells like sweet almond, which I really like. It does a great job in keeping my hands moisturized for a long time. I also use it on my elbow and knees to keep them soft. I
