I love a good body moisturiser, but I've never really used that many that are specifically for hands. When I was in Boots the other week (3 for 2's are my bank accounts worst enemy) I spotted the Burt's Bees section & had a good sniff of everything... The Almond Milk Beeswax Hand Creme (£9.99) definitely stood out!
I didn't apply any in the store but I figured it'd be like a hand lotion with a lovely marzipan scent! When I got it home and tested some... well it's not like it a lotion, it is definitely more of a BUTTER! Which I kind of think is amazing, I like unusual and I'd say this is something very different to most hand creams. It has a very thick texture that melts when heated & rubbed on your skin to produce a lovely (yet, kinda greasy) moisturising oil. Also, I love the fact that it comes in a glass pot!
Excuse the patchy tan...
I made the mistake of putting too much on the first time, and if you cover both of your hands, make sure you don't have anything to do (or touch / or a hedgehog to hold) for at least half an hour! It takes quite a while to sink in, however once it has it leaves your hands feeling lovely & soft with a nice healthy, moisturised sheen to them. The smell lingers too, which is nice - if you like almond/marzipan smells!
I really love it, as I have quite dry hands this is nice every now & again when giving myself a manicure or even to sleep in to really hydrate my mitts!
What do you think of Burt's Bees?
