Great smell of almond and nice creamy consistency.


Makes my hand dry.


I was mesmerised by this creams cute package and great smell, and decided to order it from a friend visiting the US. Just like Kiehls Burts Bees are much cheaper in the US then in Europe..The cream smells great, has a thick consistency almost like a cold butter..and this could be a positive review if not that it feels like I put on a glove of dry skin after using this cream. Not only does it takes this cream a minimum of 5 minutes to sink in, despite applied in a thin layer, but it actually makes my hand situation worse! I tried to massage it into my hands instead of simply “applying it” but saw no difference and felt very disappointed. I wondered if I was alone and checked out other reviews online and turns out other women out there cant stop raving about the greatness of this cream.  I wonder if all those reviews are sponsored or if my skin is just weird? I found one poor reviewer who was negative, and she too was questioning her own sanity after reading all those ecstatic reviews.

Despite being a 100% natural product, it contains sodium borate, which is a naturally derived compound but is restricted for use in cosmetics in many countries, one of them being Canada due to toxicity.

If anyone of you have tried this hand cream please share your experiences. This is a call for help.

  1. Oh no, it sounded like such a lovely product based on the description, but clearly a no! And don’t question yourself, sometimes products just don’t work for you and you should be honest about it. xx

  2. You’re not alone – I hated this hand cream. It smells nice IN the jar but terrible once applied to the hands. It also had a greasy feel but leaves the hands feeling weird like clay has been applied on them.
