I attended an event a couple of weeks ago in Manchester and at that event was a table set up dedicated to Burt's Bees. The only thing i've ever tried from the brand is a lip balm, which I love, but I thought this event was the perfect time to find out more from the brand and the products they had to offer.
I was given such useful information about all the different products and their ingredients. I love the fact, that the brands ingredients are almost all 100% natural, and something that definitely appeals to me.
I love the simplicity of the glass jar packaging, really simple, but also quite luxurious looking. It also looks super cute on my dressing/bedside table. Is it just me that notices these things??
The cream is quite thick, and a little product goes a long way, as it melts into your hands whilst you are blending. It smells exactly like almonds, you know bakewell? the cake? it smells EXACTLY like that. YUM.
The smell lingers on your hands for hours, I remember applying this one morning, and at some point during the afternoon, my mum wondered what hand cream I had on as, she could smell it! If that isn't a good hand cream, then I don't know what is.
The cream sinks in really quickly, and doesn't feel greasy at all. A few hand creams i've used can take an age to sink into my skin and I hate that, especially when it leaves a layer that just won't sink in!!
My hands are left feeling amazingly soft and smooth after using this product, and they feel soft all day, not just for a few hours.
I can't recommend this hand cream enough and it has become a everyday essential for me. I think this cream will be great during the colder months as my hands tend to get dry in-between my fingers.
