This is a great non-greasy handcream which absorbs quickly. Very nice scent, even if some other reviews claimed it was sticky/waxy - to me it is perfect at all points! The only downside is the price...

I don't mind this hand cream, but that's really not a ringing endorsement for repurchase. . . .
I got this because I wanted something to fight dry, chapped winter hands and cuticle - and although this does a good job moisturizing, it is sticky and takes a looooooong time to absorb. I use it some at night, but it's not heavy enough to really make a dent in dry winter hands, at least for me - and for day it's too greasy.
I like the scent, and it does do a good job of keeping my nails moisturized, but I don't think I'll repurchase. :( Usually I love BB stuff, this one was not so great.

Doesn't stay emulsified, so oil spurts out when I try to use it. I thought perhaps I simply bought a tube that had been on the shelf too long, but others have had the same complaint. It stays tacky forever and does not sink into the skin. I personally like the cloying scent of honey, but it is a tad overwhelming. This will be returned to Rite Aid ASAP.

While I do like some products from Burt's Bees, this isn't one of them. It has an odd consistency and feels sticky even when applying. It also doesn't really sink into the skin but stays on the surface, where it remains unpleasantly tacky even hours later. I realize honey is inherently sticky, but since this was a lotion I was not expecting the gummy texture. The scent is very strong, cloying and overly sweet, with a touch of rancid oil (which I assume must be the "therapeutic" grapeseed). I had such high hopes for this, but was excruciatingly disappointed. I'm torn between my desire to immediately throw it in the trash and my probably somewhat naive wish to one day actually find a way to use it. I think Burt's Bees started out as a small company that made great quality items, but since the brand is now ubiquitously displayed in every drugstore in the nation, they expanded the number of products too quickly to ensure that each one was really great. I much prefer the honey-based products made by The Naked Bee. They may have a smaller selection of items, but each one is fabulous, and their Orange Blossom Honey lotion is truly spectacular.

This product was given to me for christmas and I'm really not impressed. It hasn't done anything to moisturize my hands. It's also very sticky-leaving a lingering stickyness long after applying. Sorry Burt, but whoever's idea it was to put HONEY in hand cream was having an off day!

This product is, I would say, average at best. I bought a small tube for my desk at work- I'll finish it up, but I won't repurchase. It seems to do pretty much nothing to moisturize my hands. The consistency is extremely light (too light, I think) and a little sticky. I almost feel like I've just rubbed water into my skin after I use this- I see and feel no discernible difference in my skin after use. If you are looking for something extremely lightweight then this might be for you. But it really does not seem to deliver too much with regards to moisturizing. The honey smell is kind of nice though.

i wanted to like this, i wanted a nice hand cream for the winter. I don't mind the smell, but I hated the texture. For me it was very sticky/waxy. This was a no go product for me. returning it to target

I apply this thickly on my hands when I do my hot wax treatments on my hands for pain, the combination of the heat and what the lotion does already by itself, really helps it soak in and makes my hands so soft, I love it.

I really like this product. I find it moisturzies my dry hands (in a cold climate) really well. I love the mild honey scent it has, too.
The only thing is that I wash my hand MAN Y times a day, so I'm not really able to tell just how long the moisture lasts without washing my hands. But after washing, I love that INSTANT moisture sinks into my hands.
A bit pricey, too ($15 CAN) but it's a nice 2.0 oz. (74g) tube.

I've been having a hard time finding a good, effective hand cream. This one is working very well for me. I love the scent, which dissipates fairly quickly. I'm amazed by the bad reviews here. I think the price is pretty good considering what other natural products cost! Plus, you only need a small amount. For me it absorbs well and I don't feel any stickiness on my hands. For me it does what it's supposed to do--my hands feel soft and hydrated.

Just like the footcream from the Thoroughly Therapeutic line, I also didnīt like the handcream. Mostly due to ist strange texture - first runny and liquid, then being "absorbed" somehow in the blink of an eye and leaving just a waxy feeling behind. The moisturizing properties were not really so good. In the end, I was so fed up with the product, that I threw away the tube this morning, even though it still contained a little bit of the product. Wonīt buy again.

I bought this because one of the ingredients is macadamia nut oil and I could not find the Nivea hand cream I had previously purchased that had macadamia nut oil in it and had worked well for me. I was extremely disappointed in the Burt's Bees Honey and Grapeseed handcream for many reasons. I didn't like the smell. I didn't like the sticky texture. It did not seem particularly moisturizing (I've used better). It certainly was not worth the $10 price tag. Will not buy again.

This is a pretty light hand cream. Because of that, I like to use this during the Summertime. It makes my hands feel soft and nice. I also adore the smell. The scent is sweet, but it's a natural kind of sweet. That was probably a poor description, but I know that I love the smell.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Dry, Medium Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
I have to agree with the other reviewers about the somewhat peculiar smell of this product. It has a sweet, cloying scent. I only purchased it because I was looking for a relatively inexpensive hand cream to use at work (deal with a lot of paper and my hands tend to get super-dry). At $10 per tube, I'm not sure this product warrants its price. It works just fine and I like that it's made of all natural ingredients. However, the smell and the thin texture of the cream is not ideal for me. I would prefer a thicker, more emollient product and one with a more subtle fragrance. I'm continuing to use it only because I don't want to waste it and it's too late for me to return. I will not be re-purchasing this product and will likely go back to the hand creams from Philosophy or L'occitane.

I started paying attention to hand creams when I found out that hands don't age well (neither does the face, neck, or decolletage)... and I've been on the hunt for a cost-effective hand cream with moisturizing properties and anti-oxidants. I went through a tube of l'occitane hand cream (roughly $25 at Sephora) and although I loved it, the price is high and made me want to look for a cheaper alternative. I found this Burts Bees lotion at Target for about $10. It is an "ok" hand cream, nothing spectacular about it when compared to the l'occitane cream, but I think it is mediocre. It is quite moisturizing, which feels great. The smell is peculiar, but I in general I can get over a smell if the product works. I like this lotion but I don't love it. I probably won't repurchase after the tube is gone.

Most hand cremes seem to irritate my skin and/or dry me out (!). As a person with extremely dry hands, I am always on the look out for a good product. I've been using the honey and grapeseed hand creme for several months now, and have stopped looking for a replacement. Not strong enough for my elbows and legs (I use Seacret body lotion for the rest of my body; bizarre marketing concept, but the lotion really works, although I highly doubt that can be attributed to any dead sea minerals). Still, this seems to be the perfect fit for my hands. I carry a bottle in my bag at all times. Also, the smell is attractive.

It feels slimy when you first apply, then when it's absorbed it feels sticky. It irritated my skin too, so I had to wash it off immediately. I do like the smell, but it doesn't hold a candle to the Kiss My Face Honey and Calendula lotion.

I got this in my xmas stocking - and it was great as a gift! But after using it for awhile, I don't plan on purchasing it when I am done with the bottle.
The texture is a bit greasy and I still "feel it" after its absorbed in my skin. I'm not a big fan of the fragrance, I actually thought I was allergic to it at first! But I either got used to it or it was just a coincidence, I would sneeze when first using it.
My hands get VERY VERY dry/scaly in winter time, and this doesn't seem to solve it like other hand creams I know do! It doesn't "tingle" which leads me to believe it is a light formula, and is probably okay for people who don't get such dry skin. It is just not suited for me.
And the greasy feeling drives me crazy! That is the probably the #1 reason I will not repurchase.

After using this product, my hands are left feeling somewhat tacky and greasy. There is also a synthetic fragrance in this which is unnecessary IMO since this brand touts to be "natural." The texture is very thick and it smells very strongly of honey. I feel better about using it than most chemical-laden hand creams but I doubt I'll repurchase.

I Love this lotion. There are only 2.6 ounces in the bottle and it was $10.00, very expensive, but everytime I'd go to target, I would want it, so then I got it and I really like it. The smell is different but it is so good I dont feel that it is too overpowering but I can see how a lot of people wouldnt like it. It moiturizes pretty well, and unlike the almond milk hand creme they have, its smooth and creamy. It is a very pale yellow color. It feels a little watery but then it sinks in quickly and feels smooth. I really love this stuff. Like many other people on here I am a product addict and usually buy a lot of things and never fully use an entire bottle of anything, if I ever use all this, I will buy it again. There isnt much of it so I dont think that will be hard.
