Scent is kind of different but the cream is great for dry hands.
on January 13, 2018
I bought a two pack of this hand cream and only received one jar. Amazon refunded half the price so it's all good. Just watch out for that if you order the two pack. Anyway, I have been a huge fan of Burt's Bees Almond Milk Beeswax Hand Cream for years. I veered away from it for a while and then decided I needed it for my winter chapped and dry hands. The scent has changed. It's still smells like almonds but there is an underlying scent that is either pleasant or caustic, I can't decide. It isn't a scent I can discern. Kind of like...gasoline maybe but then it smells more floral. Weird. But that aside.the cream works great. It is very, very thick and concentrated so the deceptively small jars last as long as much larger tubes of cream. The consistency is super thick and sort of hard. It would not fall out of the jar if you tipped the open jar over and shook it hard. But it melts into the skin and isn't too greasy at all.
I use the cream at night when I can apply it liberally and it works well to hydrate my dry hands. I am still on the fence about the scent. Last night, I thought it smelled toxic but today, it smells nice. Maybe it's just me. But in all, this is a good hand cream for dry hands and is concentrated so a little goes a long way. It isn't my absolute favorite but it is one of my top five.
