I don't usually spend much money on health/beauty products but this is one lotion I'm really willing to splurge on.

This is the ONLY lotion I've ever used that successfully moisturizes and smooths my dry, cracked elbows. My hands get really bad in the winter, especially in dry, heated buildings and often are chapped enough to bleed. This lotion not only moisturizes and smooths instantaneously, the results last for a long time too.

What's also great is if you put to much on, your hands don't get too slimy or greasy. It all seems to soak in, always.

The one downside is the smell. It's not a bad smell, it's just very strong and I'm not a big fan of strong smelling things. But for everything else this product does for me, I'm willing to overlook that. Besides, my friends thinks it's smells great!

While this was a very effective cream and I liked its thickness and the way it felt on my dry hands, my husband said that it smelled terrible and not to use it around him anymore. I had somewhat felt that way before, but just needed his sensitive nose to confirm. It would be such a great product if the scent would be a little less overwhelming (or even it were unscented, which would be wonderful.) I spend too much time around people who are highly sensitive to strong scents to be able to use this product. If I lived alone, I might be able to get used to it though. Too bad.

Comments about Burt's Bees Shea Butter Hand Repair Cream, 3.2 oz:

I am a lotion junkie and have used plenty of hand cremes. This one STINKS! I gave this product two stars ~ it might work, but I will never know because I cannot get past the smell. I received this as a free sample, and I am so glad that I didn't waste money on this lotion. I will never buy this product unless Burt's Bees changes the formula...

    Comments about Burt's Bees Shea Butter Hand Repair Cream, 3.2 oz:

    This is really good stuff. Super moisturizing and it absorbs quickly. But it does have a VERY strong smell. Not bad though. Its almost like a strong herbal, sweet smell? It is a bit overpowering when you first apply it but within 10 minutes the smell is mostly gone. Regardless of the smell my hands feel great after using this so it totally worth it for me.

            Comments about Burt's Bees Shea Butter Hand Repair Cream, 3.2 oz:

            My job requires a lot of hand washing, so my hands tend to get very dry and chapped. This hand cream really seems to help! I've only been using it for a few weeks, but I have noticed my hands are less dry and the skin hasn't cracked the way it usually does in the winter. It does have more of a natural, kind of herbal scent to it, but it's not bad (I actually prefer it to more perfumed scents). I also like that it's all natural!

            Comments about Burt's Bees Shea Butter Hand Repair Cream, 3.2 oz:

            having suffered for so many years with eczema on my hands, I found that using this product works wonders. Must use it regularly. Some think it smells bad, but I don't mind it. It does have a short shelf life once its open, but I usually use it up before it goes bad.

            Comments about Burt's Bees Shea Butter Hand Repair Cream, 3.2 oz:

            I never really used BB's products before, but I bought a tube of this at the airport. It smells strong, but I kind of like the smell. Others may not. I have eczema on my hands and dislike using prescription medication. After just one day I noticed my eczema going away. And now after a few days of using it after I wash my hands, the eczema is almost gone. I am now interesting in trying other BB products. They must be good!

              I love this product! I'm a nurse and my hands get so cracked and dried out from handwashing and using hand sanitizer. I've tried just about every lotion, cream, hand repair product out there. This is the only thing that has worked for me. It is a bit pricey but if it works, then it is worth it. Also I don't think the scent is bad- it seems like lavender- real lavender, not the fake scented kind you find in other products

              Comments about Burt's Bees Shea Butter Hand Repair Cream, 3.2 oz:

              My hands and fingers were so dry, like sandpaper, they were catching on all of my clothes. I used this stuff once and noticed a difference. It's a little greasy (not the worst I have tried) but does eventually absorb well. It doesn't smell all pretty like some of the other lesser hand cremes do but I don't find it offensive and it doesn't seem to be strong or linger very long. I use it before bed and in the morning and don't seem to need to reapply anything during the day. I won't use anything else now.

                Comments about Burt's Bees Shea Butter Hand Repair Cream, 3.2 oz:

                I bought this product before I read any of the customer reviews and without reading the actual title of the cream.. I just saw the "shea butter" part and decided to buy it. That beign said, once I received and tried it, I was immediately disappointed by the smell, by how heavy and greasy it felt, and by the fact that it did not absorb quickly at all. I had to wipe my hands with a heavy duty paper towel and then wash them several times to get rid of the smell. In my opinion this cream is defintiely a "repair" cream which might do well for someone with extremely dry hands. I gave it to a coworker and she loves it and uses it daily.
                I still love Burt's Bees and continue to buy and use their products, but not this cream.
