Wow, I love the berry scent and put this on my hands. A bit greasy, but it soaks in. One lippie off for price. I love the retro jar packaging. I have so many lotions and creams but this may be full jar worthy. It feels very luxurious and pampering and super thick.

This product is amazing! They seem to have changed the formula and ingredients. The older version was grainy and had lots of extracts. Newer version is smooth and the extracts seem to have reduced (bummer!) but the scent has improved slightly.

Regarding packaging, the jar looks very vintage chic and the cream is slightly thick - can guess it has a lot of beeswax. Ingredient list has some chemical names but no parabens or glycols, which is good.

Cream is expensive for the quantity. One quick result I saw of the cream is that it reduced the scabs I had on my chin. I had had a split chin and needed to get 10 stitches there. After that, my chin always has these scabs and nicks around the area. Using this cream, that area seems much smoother and soft.

This cream is good for the face too, although it is marketed as body butter. A little goes a long way! I do not care much for the scent which is very berry-like and a bit strong. I am happy with this product and waiting to see more marvelous products like this, from Savannah Bee! I am happy to see they have an unscented version of this body butter - hoping to see it at Whole Foods soon!

Generally, I do not like products that smell like food or fruit, but I absolutely love this stuff. I love the smell- admittedly it's not for everyone. It's very thick and creamy. I love the way it keeps my skin soft and silky. Though the packaging is pretty, I don't like that I have to scoop the lotion out with my fingers.

My Mom happened to buy this and liked it, so I decided to pick some up. I have an 18 month old who had developed bumps all over his skin. I wasn't sure it it was eczema or an allergic reaction! He was getting very dry so I started using this cream on him, and the bumps DISAPPEARED! Within 2 uses! I don't know if it's the fact that this cream contains no mineral oil, which was an ingredient in the lotion I had been using on him, or what- but it worked! I don't like the jar; it's heavy and breakable and the cream is very thick and I don't like scooping it out! But it has worked wonders on my baby's skin! On my skin it does okay- feels very moisturizing at first, but sort of fades quickly IMO. I always want to reapply! Smells like tart blackberries- which I like!

I cannot get past the smell. I do not like this at all. Back to the store it goes. Sad because the packaging is very elegant.

I had high hopes for this line. I was looking forward to purchasing this product but alas, the smell. It smells like blackberries. Not something I want to smell like. I really wish this was unscented. It seemed like a nice cream if you like the scent of blackberries you should try this.

At first I thought just another body butter they came out with. After a couple of times of trying it in the store and one of the S/A gave me a little sample I bought it. The texture is thick, the smell is o.k., but my dry chapped hands have become less dry and chapped of course from not one day to another. I've been using it now for 6 weeks. It comes in glass jar with three little bees inprinted in the front. It 6.7 oz for $22 US dollars. When you have dry hands like me I'll go to any extent to keep them soft. It works even better I think when I put my gel gloves on.
