I tried this is in desperation for a mysterious rash i suddenly developed on my hands. Zam Buck helped too, but you can only get it in the UK, so I tried this creme. It works wonderfully, and my hand rash is now gone. Now I'm getting another rash on both arms, and regular use of this creme resolves that, too. (I think the rashes were a result of a drug reaction.)

As a side benefit, my arm and hand skin is getting much smoother, softer and younger looking. Little, rough age spots are softening and (I think) disappearing. It's hard to tell once they're gone!

Anyway, works for me! Thank you, Morgan Stanely, who I think now owns Burt?

I'd still like to see certified organic ingredients, but at least Burts doesn't falsely use the word "organic" as do many skin care and cosmetics companies.

My first foray into the Burt's Bees line of products was their Lemon Butter Cuticle Creme, which is fabulous! Therefore, I was sorely disappointed with this Almond Milk Beeswax Hand Creme. Not only is the name ridiculously long, but the product itself is ridiculously ineffective.

The consistency is definitely too heavy for daytime use. I tried using the creme at night before bed, but it would never absorb; it just sat greasily on my skin and did not provide any moisturization.

My next step was trying it as a foot creme, at night, with cotton socks. I was hoping in vain that keeping my feet covered would magically make the creme more effective than it had been on my hands. Wrong! If anything, my feet were DRIER in the morning. Unbelievable.

Well, that was my last-ditch effort in finding a practical use for this glorified lard. Rather than tossing it in the garbage and wasting it completely, I'll probably bring it into work and leave it in the ladies' room; even though it has been used, I'm sure some orphany wretch will snatch it up for the brand name alone.

    Comments about Burt's Bees Almond Milk Beeswax Hand Creme, 2 oz:

    I have used this brand hand cream for years and am very dismayed that the other scent (honey and something) is no longer made. I just do not like the smell of this hand cream but it does work perfectly great, and I buy it now because it does work to keep my consistently dry hands moisturized. If I could find a different product with the same effects, I would switch though (again, I just do not like this particular almond smell).

      Comments about Burt's Bees Almond Milk Beeswax Hand Creme, 2 oz:

      This product works "ok" but takes a little longer than I care for to absorb...but it is the strong smell that I cannot stand. I put on hands at night before going to bed (after turning down sheets so I don't have to touch anything) and I tried getting used to the smell but cannot. I tried using a little bit during day, but still the smell is a bit overwhelming. So unfortunately this was a waste of $$$ as I will toss it. Would not recommend. Disappointed as love Burts Bees brand.

        I use this product year round at bedtime. The last thing I do is apply this creme to my hands sitting on the bed. My hands used to split and crack all winter. Now with the use of this product.......no more splitting or cracking.

        Comments about Burt's Bees Almond Milk Beeswax Hand Creme, 2 oz:

        I love this product. Especially the subtle almond scent. I was so disappointed when my favorite hand creme was discontinued until I discovered this. It's a bit denser, thicker and greasier than my previous hand creme. You only need to use a little. I find I also need to blot my hands with a paper towel in the daytime (not an issue if you use at night time/wear cotton gloves). Also great for elbows, feet and heels. Perfect for your skin during a harsh Winter like this or if you garden. It's so good my boyfriend took it!

          This works well, it's not terribly greasy but takes time to absorb. The problem is the smell. At first it smells like Jergens but quickly turns to something else. The smell lasts maybe 10 minutes.

            I apply this product to hands at bedtime each day. Rub it in good. Product does not stain bedding or clothing in spite of the fact that it is of course greasy.
            Iam 76 years old and work outside in winter months and this is the first year ever, here in New Hampshire that my hands are crack free. I love this product!!

                    Comments about Burt's Bees Almond Milk Beeswax Hand Creme, 2 oz:

                    This has been my favorite and necessary hand cream for a few years already, but when I had initially gotten it, as happened to me with a couple other Burt's Bees products as well, it seemed overbearing, when I really just wasn't need of this type of product at the time but later was. At first, when I was probably still in law school, I was waking up with my hands still sticky from it, at least in the creases; but I finally realized that sleeping 4-5 hours a night like I was was simply not enough time for it to soak in well. I put it away for a while, and when I was sleeping another couple of hours a night, I started using it again, and absolutely love it. The smell of almonds is very strong, but I love the smell, even when I curl my hands up near my face to go to sleep.

                    I've lately started making my own body butter since Burt's Bees no longer offers my favorite kind, and while this has been wonderful for my legs etc., it hasn't been rich enough for my hands, so I've still been using this Almond Hand Creme for my hands. My only desire is that it was a small enough producer so that it was fresh-made and did not need the preservatives and stabilizers, even if natural; so I may stil try to make my own version, with beeswax added to the cocoa and shea butters and oils I've been making body butter with, to see if a homemade creme can compete with this one.
