This is definitely a "before bed" balm/cream. It's both greasy and waxy so once you put it on, either put on a pair of gloves over it or know that anything and everything you touch will leave residue stuck to your hands until it sinks in. The scent reminds me of banana taffy at first, but turns waxy and synthetic quickly. It does moisturize but it's nothing special. This was part of the trial kit, and I would not buy this in full size.

For me, this is one of the better BB scents. I enjoy bananas. Also, this stuff is really moisturizing and does keep hands soft. But I hate waiting 3 years for this to soak into my hands. It's so greasy which is kind of annoying.

i got this in a kit, and i'm glad it was a sample because i really didn't like it much. for starters the scent is kind of gross. kind of like fake bananas and wax. then the texture is godawful. it's really thick (in a bad way) and waxy and soooo sticky! can't imagine wearing this during the day at all, on account of how sticky it is. and it just stays there and doesn't sink in for ages. it moisturizes ok, and is definitely better than nothing when you have really dry skin. if you are going to use this, the best way to do this is at night before bed, with gloves and socks on (i used it on my feet too) so that by morning it's been absorbed, and you do see a difference.
wouldn't repurchase tho.

This hand creme is really great for extremely dry, cracked hands. The banana scent is especially lovely (though it smells less like banana and more like banana bread after you apply it). However, it takes forever to absorb, and is kind of...oily-waxy-sticky...so I don't use it at any time other than just before I go to bed as it makes touching anything really messy.

First of all, the scent is to die for. Like banana candy. It rescues my dry hands. I went across the country to visit my in laws in very cold winter weather, 7 degrees to be exact. Forgot my eye cream back home and my eyes were feeling dry, so I though, what the heck I'll use this. Well I must share it freaking worked great. Even de puffed my eyes from all the traveling. I <3 it.

My favorite hand cream ever! This smells wonderful!! I absolutely love the banana scent (which I was skeptical about at first). It's not over-powering and fades rather quickly. I wear it at night with the Burt's Bees cotton gloves and it works great!

I personally think this was one of the worst products I have ever used. Luckily it came in a small trial size bottle in a burt's bees assortment kit... It smells terrible. At first it smells like a banana laffy taffy, then it quickly starts to smell like a cake doughnut. Would never buy again. Don't recommend.

I use this with the Lemon Butter cuticle cream. This is one of my favorite treatment products. It smells divine, you will want to eat it! Is very think and moisturizing - I use it with the gloves I got in a set at night. Wake up to gorgeous hands, love it!!

My absolute favorite for dry, wintry hands. This is so good! I always have one in my purse for when I wash my hands. Try it!

I received a miniature of this in a Burts trial pack and while it's emollient, absorbed fairly quickly for a rich cream and instantly left my hands feeling softer and looking better, I can't stand the smell. The banana is not the issue...It's a dark earthiness lurking under the banana that clashes with the top note that I can't stand. I suggest it for any rough areas like knees and elbows but in terms of using it again, once is enough.

I LOVE THIS PRODUCT. It makes my hands incredibly soft and moisturized. it does take a few minutes to soak in but i don't mind 'cause i use it before bed. when i wake up, my hands are incredibly soft. Will continue to purchase as long as they make this for.

hmm.. the smell on this is iffy. but...... is is 100% natural! :) i would buy this again, but i like the burt's bees almond milk hand cream better than this beeswax and banana one. it is moisturizing, and i do like it alot plus it is good for your skin! :)first ingredient: sweet almond oil!:) gotta love it!:)

I recently received a mini version of this as a swap extra, and I've been using it in place of my normal (the Aquafina shea butter one) hand lotion for the past few days. I must say that I'm really impressed! It feels kind of weird/different upon first few applications - it's much thicker than I'm used to, and a little goes a long way (I'm seeing some reviewers say that this is too greasy/takes too long to sink in, and I suspect that they're simply using too much - I seriously needed only like, a nickel-sized amount for both hands and it would sink in immediately) - but it does make my hands feel SO soft, and just one application is enough (I usually find myself having to reapply constantly because my hands still feel dry) to keep my hands hydrated for hours. The scent is pleasant as well - bananas and honey, light and not overpowering. I ended up ordering the full size!

I love the smell of this!! I only use at night so I don't mind that it doesn't absorb quickly. It does a really good job of moisturising my hands and they always feel lovely and soft by morning. I would definately repurchase just because I love the smell so much.

I got this as a gift, actually I got two. I thought that it would help my hands for at the time I worked in a nursery and my hands were constantly wet and dirty making parts very dry. I couldn't get passed how greasy this made my hands and it wouldn't go away. So I started using it with night gloves, still didn't work so great. It made my hands feel soft but didn't help with the dryness and cracked cuticles

I was disappointed to read all the bad reviews of this product. On the jar it says SUPER EMOLLIENT. There is no way you can put a super emollient on your hands and expect it to absorb in a couple minutes so you can go about your business. I got this in a package with cloth gloves for overnight applications. That is really the best way to use it. The smell does not bother me. To me it says "soft hands in the morning!" I also put this on scratches, nicks, or bug bites and it seems to really help with healing.

I like the smell of this - it's a subtle scent of bananas. However, it did not moisturize too well. My hands felt sticky, waxy, and a bit greasy. I found that it did not absorb too well into my skin and I am a lot better off using a hand cream.

I used to be a barista in a coffee shop and was constantly washing my hands and doing dishes with harsh detergents. The smell is god auwful after a while (think artificially flavored banana runts nastiness) but this really helped repair them. I couldn't justify putting it on as often as I would have liked to keep the dryness at bay while I was working because it took so freakin' long to sink in, so now I use it as a sock foot overnight treatment thingy and it really works wonders... they should change it to a foot cream and I would repurchase it, but it is entirely too emollient as a hang cream unless you have a half hour to not use your hands while it works it's magic.

I'm not impressed with the texture-- it's really greasy. I like the smell, but you have to really like bananas. It pretty much smells like a jar of banana pudding.

to be honest i hate this as a hand cream (i can't stand the feeling of any thick creams with oils on my hands) but i absolutely LOVE it as an all-purpose balm. i've put it on dry skin patches on my arms and legs, and post-pimple marks, which it soothes amazingly (and i swear gets rid of redness). i also love the feeling of it as a lip balm, before i go to bed. i think of it as a better for you, petroleum-free version of vaseline.
i'm so-so on the smell - i'm weird about bananas though. sometimes i crave them and sometimes i think they're disgusting. i usually open the jar and think "ick," then rub some on and realize it's not that bad.
i love the cream but not for it's intended use, which i've found is true for many burt's bees products. if you don't like it as one thing, try it elsewhere on your body! since the ingredients are natural (and mostly very similar between products) you can't really go wrong with a little experimentation.
