I got lured into this hand cream from the delicious smell of bananas...however after repeated use for several months, I have come to the conclusion that it doesn't work at all. It's really greasy upon application, but once it sinks in, your hands end up drier than ever! In fact, after using it repeatedly, my hands are sore and peeling. Isn't that strange?
Did someone fill my pot up with paste? OMG this stuff is so sticky, I could wallpaper with it. I got this in a kit of sample-size products on sale so the price was inexpensive. I only took a small dab of this out to put on my cuticles and my fingers and sticking to the keys on my keyboard. Yuck. Maybe I'll try this on my heels this winter but I'll have to put on socks and go to bed with this stuff on. It's so thick and gooey. Sorry, BB, but this is a big fail.
I have three mini jars of this stuff lying around for over a year now. I kept buying the trial packs for the foot cream and lemon cuticle butter (fabulous).
The hand creme in a pot was a fail though. Until I used it as a wax for my hair.
The stuff stinks. But because they come in such handy mobile pots, I use them as hair product at the gym. Win!
Burt's Bee's is a great brand that always has cute packaging, and you know the products are natural. This hand creme REALLY moisturizes your skin. I would only use this if you really need heavy duty moisturizing. The consistency is very thick and very waxy and it doesn't absord fast. It takes a lot of time to rub it in and even then you'll need to wipe the rest off. This didn't smell like banana's to me, just typical Burt's Bee's waxy smell, which I don't hate but its not the nicest. A tiny bit of this goes a long way. It also kind of feels gross on your skin.
I found this moisturiser to be extremely waxy (given, its made from bees wax) with quite a rancid smell. I note alot of people have stated how gorgeous this product smells, I simply cannot smell it. Maybe my product is off, but I know for sure the smell is not pretty.
It left my hands WAY too sticky.... infact Im looking down at my keyboard now, which is severely marked and oily from the product. It even leaves a slight burn on the skin. After all the stickiness, I find the cream sinks in quite quickly, but leaves your hands feeling drier than they were before. Something is wrong with this product, I dont know what it is, but I dont believe it is good for your skin.
For the price, this product is a waste of money. I tried using this while working outside in the winter but my hands still became very sore and cracked and this hand cream just seems to sit as a sticky mess on top of the skin rather than being absorbed into the skin. Then I tried some of my dad's basic drug store hand cream and all of a sudden my hands were repaired, soft and looked after. So I have nothing positive to say about this product other than the nice banana smell.
This hand cream is o.k. It is kind of greasy, but I guess the greasiness doesn't last that long. But neither do the moisturizing properties. I like the smell though. But I need something better for my hands. Will not repurchase.
Note: This review also applies to the Almond Milk Beeswax Hand Creme.
In the hand cream world, this was one of my first purchases. Now that I look back on it, it was way too stick aka waxy hence the name. I prefer the hand repair cream now but no one has started a review about it. It is true that it lasted a long time, but a long icky time cause after about two months you really don't want to go to back to the jar. It's too sticky and gunky.
I love this hand creme ~ it's perfect for my at-home manicures and pedicures. It smells like banana's and I use it on my DH's feet. He won't admit it, but he loves it too...I will buy this product again...
i love the smell of this stuff! Very moisturizing for hands, elbows, knees, soles of feet and lips. its a lil oily at first but absorbs in fast.
