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.
This was by far the absolute worst product I've ever purchased online period. I mean I've bought things before thinking about how I wasn't getting what I paid for, a piece of junk. Well, I have received my share puff regrettable things. But, honestly with even those things I at least got a little use out of them before they were finished. What completely surprised me regarding this product was that it was from Burt's Bees. I am a HUGE Burt's Bees fan and I truly just knew I was going to love this hand cream. Then I opened it and the smell of this stuff was so awful I absolutely could not use it. I wound up throwing it away after my stepdaughter opened it asking me excitedly what it was and she had stank face... LOL I'm sorry Burt's Bees, this product is a complete fail.
I'm not sure if there was something wrong with the product, if it was too old or a bad batch, or as some other reviewers have noted it seems like it might not be a genuine product from this brand. But the product was yellow, very oily, and I needed to wash my hands right away to get it off. Glad I was able to return. Do not recommend whatsoever, read other reviews - they are accurate in noting that this is a problem product.
Greasy and waxy at the same time and the smell is terrible. Best to buy Trader Joe's Ultra Moisturizing Hand Cream - 20% Pure Shea Butter which is very smooth and silky and the scent is minimal. I normally like Burt's Bees products, but I will never buy this moisturizer again.
I was looking for a similar product to the No-Crack hand cream brand with a more reasonable Amazon price tag. The smell, consistency and residue were not at all was I was expecting. I will not be using again. I love their lip balm, but the hand cream is not at all what I was looking for.
