Delicious scent, creamy consistency
I have been using the hand cream for a few days now and really loving it. It states that it is 'almond and milk' however smells exactly like sour cherry which happens to be my favourite scent so no complaints here. It has a thick, almost lip-gloss feel to the cream however immediately 'melts' into your skin to leave behind a smooth film on your skin which is almost unnoticeable.

Great cream but very scented
I had a small sample jar of this which was great for my handbag. I loved the rich and very moisturising texture of this and while it didn't sink in straight away when it did my hands felt smooth and soft.
I really didn't like the smell of this I just found it sickly and when I made the mistake of putting this on when I was stuck on a very hot crowded train once I found out other people think that as well judging by some of the looks I got.
I would buy this again if it had a more neutral fragrance.

Very nourishing for the skin, delightful smell
I really like this product, and because of it am eager to try other Burt's Bees products.
I wouldn't classify this product as an "everyday use" type of hand cream as it is quite thick and absorbs gradually rather than instantly. Good for use before bedtime or at home. The smell is very rich and natural.

This hand cream is very rich and moisturising. I find it wonderful to use before bed, as it can soak in and you wake up with lovely, soft and smooth hands. Take care and spend time massaging it in, your hands will be much more hydrated

This product is super soft and smooth, it's simple to apply, and the aroma echo's the products sentiments as it smells of almonds and milk. The packaging is very handy, and it's cute, but I felt like my hands were very greasy after using the creme. Because it's so thick, it seems to take longer to be absorbed, and my hands felt stodgy for a few minutes while it dried.

good hand cream
I have quite dry hands as a result of my work. i gave this a go and i like it! the smell is a little off putting, maybe thats just me, but the cream is great, soaked into my hands quickly and they felt soft and smooth.

Super rich cream
I was lucky enough to get a deluxe sized sample of this product from Burt's Bees. :) I've finished the jar and really loved using it. It is probably the most intensive hand cream I've ever used and really works on dry patches.
I adore the scent, I believe it is the almond oil that to me always smells like cherry lollies!! :P The scent alone makes this a pleasure to use. I find I need only the smallest dab on both of my hands. As I rub it in it feels quite oily but it does sink in. I don't mind the texture, you just have to be careful not to go overboard or you'll have greasy palms.
Also a grea product to rub into dry knees and elbows. I can't wait to try the banana scented hand creme next.

Perfect for dry skin
This is a beautiful smelling moisturiser that works perfect for really dry skin. I use it on the soles of my feet after getting the dead skin cells off and my elbows and it works a treat. I also use it on my hands but only if they are dry - if not I find it is a little too much and leaves a slight greasy residue.
Really nice product at an affordable price.

Night time recovery cream
This is an amazing hand cream that my hands love - but I have to restrict to pre bedtime use only.
The reason being, it has such a rich, thick, emollient formula, even a small amount will make my hands feel coated - well hydrated, but rather greasy.
For day time I prefer something light that sinks in fast, but for night this cream is absolutely perfect. I can put it on & it can sink in at leisure.
The cream comes in a really cute round jar that contains 57gms - quite generous, given how little I need to put on each use. I like how the product is 98% natural, with Sweet Almond Oil as it's primary ingredient. The scent is strong ie a potent almond aroma, but I expected that, and I find it quite pleasant.
I've noticed on the jar it says to also use on elbows, knees & feet - something I haven't tried yet, but I think would work a treat (again at bedtime) for hydrating.
This would be 100% my 'go-to' hand cream too in winter, should my hands start to feel dry or cracked. It'd work brilliantly at repairing.
I really like this product, and for a jar on my bedside table, it's perfect.

Maximum hand moisture & protection
Burt's Bees is my go-to for ultimate moisture, particularly with the lip balms and the oh-so fab cuticle butter. So when I was in southern USA for their recent cold front and ridiculous chilly December weather, Burt's Bees was my go-to brand to save my dry skin from cracking off my bones!
I went for the Almond Milk for the compact tub and super-thick creamy texture. Initially your hands are shiny and slightly oily (to the point where it transferred when I'd touch my phone), however it does absorb and definitely protects. Even after washing your hands, your skin is still buttery soft.
I must say I only like to eat my almonds, and cannot stand almond fragrances or liquer. This hand creme smells like Amaretto which to me is gross, but I can't argue with the results. I'll live with the scent for the effect. This is the only reason why I've given it four stars rather than five. That said, if you love almonds, have at it!
