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.
I find this WORKS amazingly well...one application keeps my hands rose-petal soft for a couple of days but is not at all greasy on me. But...I don't particularly love the smell, and it lasts amazingly long (which might actually be a plus, if you love the smell and want to think of it like a perfume). I last applied it 12 to 14 hours ago and the scent has barely faded at all. It's not overpoweringly strong, but I can smell it a little wherever I go, now, and I don't like that.
I have bought this product several times on the past, and have loved it. Normally it is a treat to apply the cream - goes on smoothly and I enjoy the scent. However, I recently bought three tubes and they were not the same quality. The cream seemed almost dried out and was difficult to apply. It seemed to take longer to soak in, as well. I used to be able to buy this cream all over, then could only find at Walmart, and finally can only find on Amazon. Is this cream not going to be made anymore? Are these three tubes old stock? Perhaps. I will be sad if the product is discontinued, but I don’t think I can purchase any more from Amazon because the three tubes I bought recently were not worth the price.
Let’s just admit it, we buy Burt’s Bees products because they are more than 90% organic, and they work great too! But their scents are kinda the worst. This has a very chemical scent so I really do not like it but if I have to take its effectiveness into consideration then this is 100% approved! I lived in Vietnam for 18 years and this is the first time I go to America to study, the weather in Vietnam is usually humid so my skin is not that dry. But when I moved to Houston my hands got so dry that they look like some old man’s hands and I was freaked out! Then I ordered this and used it with a hope that my hands would be beautiful again and guess what? It works! Within a week I already saw the result! Goodbye old man’s hands! Hello beautiful baby hands! But the scent is still unacceptable and not to mention that it is really hard to squeeze it out because the texture is not very soft so 4 stars!
It applies on super thin and appears not to be moisturizing but as it sits in, it deeply penetrates the skin leaving it soft. One negative is the overpowering smell of grape seed. This smell is way too strong and lingers.
I prefer fragrance free products, but this lotion smells great workout being 'girly' (though the smell might actually make you hungry.) Leaves a light oily layer once applied, but doesn't leave a mess on everything you touch. The deep moisturizing version made by Burts Bees is definitely better.
