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!

Great but not my personal preference
It's very thick and rich - works really well for dry skin that needs a lot of moisture. It leaves skin feeling really soft & smooth, but personally, the smell turns me off the product as a whole. Aside from that, it really is a great product for people who have dry hands.

This product has a very strong smell, so it may not be your cup of tea. But if it is a smell that you love, it is Amazing! I find the product is very good on my super dry hands (I wash my hands a lot for work). It is very greasy, but I like to use it to give myself mini hand massages. If you're looking for something to indulge your hands, then this is a good product. It's more of a home use product because it takes so long to absorb.

Exceptionally hydrating (but strongly scented)
I'll start with the positives. This is one of the most hydrating and nourishing hand creams that I have used. I have generally dry hands, but this product immediately makes my hands feel better, and keeps them feeling nice and soft and moisturised for hours after application. Not many hand creams do that for me.
However, there are some downsides. I, personally, do not like the strong almond smell at all. I also find that the packaging is nice to look at, but I don't really like having to dip my fingers into the pot to get to the product.
The cream is also a thick and balm like consistency. When rubbed onto the skin, it initially feels a little bit sticky and it takes a while for all the product to fully absorb. But after a few minutes, you're good to go!
While there are a few negatives, I will keep using this product because it really does work for me.

Best in Beauty Awards 2013 Vote
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. This is a worthy product nominated for the Best in Beauty Awards 2013 and it has my vote!

I love this product the best out of all Burts Bees products. It smells so lovely and is like rubbing cashmere into your hands. Its become one of my favourite beauty staples.

Great for extreme moisturising
I got this in a giftset and though its too greasy for an everyday handcream, I do still love it. I tend to use it only when my hand are really dry, and at night. It is one of the most intense moisturises I have come across but it does take some time to absorb into the skin.
It is also great for feet. I can put this on my heels in the morning if I forgot to put my foot cream on the night before and I know my heels won't look unsightly dry for the rest of the day.

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.
