To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Some other reviewers have commented on a mild smell; I found it extremely strong. It is a pleasant smell, but it's much more potent than I want on my hands. The lotion does feel wonderfully soft and hydrating. It seemed to aggravate eczema for me after several days of use; an initial patch test didn't fail, and for the first couple of days my hands were much less dry than they had been--but after using it for about five days I noticed a few persistent and growing dry patches and a few spots where my skin started peeling, which improved when I switched back to a different lotion.
This is probably a good option to consider if you're looking for a scented lotion. I will probably give the rest of my mostly-full tube to a friend who liked the way it smelled.
Great item. I love Burt's Bees products for all the natural ingredients and heavenly scents. This particular hand cream doesn't smell too perfume-like.. it just smells like a typical, natural lotion. Only 3 stars though, because the consistency changed (maybe it expired?) 4 months after purchase.
