Burts Bees Beeswax and Banana Hand Cream

Hello! I mentioned in my Christmas Gift Guide that I had written a full review on this hand cream so here it is! I had heard really great things about the Burts Bees Beeswax and Banana hand cream so I bought it about nine months ago for my mums birthday. She absolutely loves her hand creams so I was hoping this would be a goody! Since then I have used it quite a lot too and I really love it and she is now on her second pot!



In the pot its a very thick consistency but as soon as you start massaging it into your hand it seems to melt into more of an oil texture which is lovely. It doesn’t sink in that quickly so I wouldn’t recommend it as a daytime hand cream, but for night it is amazing because it almost leaves an oil layer on my hands which can then soak in overnight.



As the weather started getting colder, my hands started getting quite dry in places so I used this for a couple of nights and it helped amazingly well! All of the dry patches on my hands were lovely and soft again.

It smells absolutely incredible as well! As the name suggests, it smells of bananas which I find does fade after a while on the hands which is great if you don’t like strongly scented products. Personally, I love them and wished it smelt even stronger of bananas!



I find this is quite thick and rich so if you need an intensive, treatment type hand cream then I would highly recommend this.

What is your favourite hand cream? I would love to know!
