Moisturising, but the smell changes
I bought this because I am a sucker for cute packaging and natural products. I love the cute glass bottle with metal lid it comes in. It is extremely thick, so just a small amount is enough to moisturise and keep my skin soft. When I first use it, it has a lovely soft almondy smell. It smells so good that I can keep smelling it. Unfortunately after a few minutes, the smell changes and its a very unpleasant floury, pasty smell. And I don't use this cream often because of this strange smell.

First up, I like the packaging of the cream. It is in a cute glass jar with lovely labelling- however since I'm not a fan of dipping my fingers into jars (fear of making the product gross) this isn't a plus. It smells amazing, but on first application it was very greasy. This would only work as a night hand cream as it does moisturise quite well- but even after time the greasiness doesn't go away and the feeling isn't one I like. Shame though because I really wanted to like this hand cream.

This cream is quite thick and takes a while to absorb. It is ultra moisturizing though! As a nurse, I wash my hands a lot! This cream keeps my hands nice and soft.

This is a rich and creamy hand cream. It does have a bit of an unusual almond scent but I personally love the smell. It is so thick and super hydrating, it is a real dry hand saviour perfect for the dry winter months. I love applying it before bed and when I wake up my hands feel so soft, smooth and nourished. A little bit of this product goes a long way which is great as it means that the jar will last a while. I love the Burt's Bees product range.

i tried this and for me found it toooo oily. i could see it as a good night moisturiser to put on before bed, but its not practical as a day moisturiser unless you have time to let if fully absorb

Bitter, Acrid, Tart Aroma
Burt's Bees Almond Milk & Beeswax Hand Cream 7g comes in a small round glass pot with a tin screw cap lid.
It is an all natural hand cream that moisturises dry skin and shields hands from the elements.
It is cream in colour with a thick consistency. The texture is smooth, rich and creamy.
The hand cream massages into hands well, is ultra moisturising and leaves a shiny clear film on skin.
A barrier on hands to protect from skin drying conditions.
Slightly waterproof, with water beading on skin covered with hand cream.
The downside for me is the aroma, it has a bitter, sour smell, almost like soured milk, very acrid and tart to me.
Apart from the smell, this is a great cream for dry hands, it's super rich and nourishing, giving skin extra support when needed.
The hand cream would be fantastic for the colder seasons.
A barrier cream preventing hands from becoming dry and chapped with cold, windy and wet elements.
The Almond Milk & Beeswax Hand Cream is from a Tips & Toes Kit (not displayed), purchased from Priceline.
Made in U.S.A.

A rich thick cream
I bought this hand cream because I loved the packaging (love the cute little glass bottle/jar). Its is super rich, so a little goes a long way for me and I still have so much left from my jar. My only complaint is that the smell changes for me after I use it. I love the way it smells when I first open to jar and apply some creme, but it seems to change after a while and doesnt smell so almondy anymore.

Burts bees almond milk & beeswax hand cream Best in Beauty 2012
I have loved this hand cream for many years,even before it was available in Australia.My hands are constantly in dish liquid,clothes soaker & dirty nappies etc so they are extremely prone to becoming very dry , sore & cracking .This cream takes care of all of those things & leaves my hands beautifully soft & hydrated not to mention smelling gorgeous.
It's lovely & thick but not greasy & i find it absorbs very well,great to leave on with gloves as an overnight treatment.
I love the fact that i can go to the shops & buy this now whenever i want and not have to buy it from overseas.I also love the packaging:)
Highly recommend to all.

This is a gorgeous handcream! The smell is just fantastic and so delicious.
I find using this handcream and then putting on cotton gloves and leaving it overnight leaves my hands feeling so soft and supple the next day.
The formula is quite thick, however it isn't greasy. I find it absorbs really nicely into my skin.
My cuticles get quite dry and I start to see cracks in my fingers and this cream really does help to replenish my skin.
The smell is my favourite part! I love the almond scent. Yummy!

This handcream is wonderful for really dry hands. It's very rich and moisturising. Not really suitable for daytime use though, as it does take a while to absorb. I use this at night whenever my hands feel really dry or if I've been gardening. I wear cotton gloves to bed and my hands feel wonderfully soft in the morning. It's also great for feet (again, wear socks). I personally like the scent. Great value for money, as the jar lasts a long time. I have repurchased this one a few times.
