Burt's Bees Hand Creme Beeswax and Banana -- 2 fl oz
Best night time hand and cuticle cream
I have loved this cream for my nightly ritual hand care. I am a health provider and wash my hands multiple times daily. This cream is thick but not sticky, I use it on my cuticles as well. It restores the moisture very well.

oils smell like bacon grease
I thought this would be a great product. I have used many other Burt's Bees products and have always been satisfied. I have used the Almond hand cream and liked it so I thought this would be the same but with a different scent.
On opening the jar you can smell banana but the oils in it smell like bacon grease after you have it on your skin. I know that everyone's body can affect scent differently but this was awful. I had to wash it off. I tried it on two different occasions and it was consistently bad.
I would think again on this product. This was just my experience but still I would not have written a review unless I really felt strongly about this. Hope this helps.

My all time favorite
I use this on my hands at bedtime. Smells wonderful, works great. I wouldn't use it when you're going to have to pick up a pen and ruin your paper, but this is a favorite product and I buy it regularly. If you need hand cream and the ability to write w/o ruining your paper together, use L'Occitane. Otherwise this is my absolute go-to cream.

Greasy at first, but great at last!
I do lots of gardening and I'm severly OCD about washing my hands all day. I keep huge bottles of lotion in 4 different places around the house. I decided to try bee's wax after I heard surgeons use it to keep their hands moist. I didn't know what to expect. I hate greasy lotions and at first I was disappointed by the very greasy feeling the wax had for about 1/2 hour or so after applying. However, once it dried I noticed right away that it didn't wash off when I washed my hands. Usually lotions turns into a slippery slime that washes right off. Not this stuff! I like to put regular lotion on first, then apply the wax to help trap the moisturizing in. Now I only have to apply lotion about 2-3 times a day instead 5-8. The container is quite small but goes a long, long way! If you're wondering if it's worth a try, I don't think you'll be disappointed. It didn't have the really nice smell I was hoping for, but it's bearable. Don't expect much there.. I put it on my face too!

Excellent on sensitive skin
I hesitated. The jar looked so small. And I have such sensitive skin.
It's wonderful. Doesn't take huge amounts, so that little jar suddenly makes sense.
Doesn't irritate my skin that reacts to so many other things. It smells yummy. It sinks in within a couple of minutes.
Suddenly I don't have rough places on my feet. My hands don't feel dry when I wake up in the mornings. I bought a 2nd jar already.
I'm starting to see why this brand has such a following.
