Burt's Bess Almond Milk Beeswax Hand Creme

February 27, 2014


My all time favourite lip balm is the Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip Balm (if you love a minty balm, fun out and get this now!), so when I was contacted to sample the Burt's Bees Almond Milk Beeswax Hand Creme, I had to say yes! ...my review will still be 100% honest!


I'll start off by saying how much I love skincare in glass tubs/bottles! It makes a product so much more luxurious. One day when I have a pretty guest bathroom, I want to fill it with skincare that comes in glass containers.

Like all Burt's Bees products, you can buy this at Priceline, Myer, David Jones, Target and other pharmacies. This retails for $19.95 for this 57g tub. If you aren't familiar with Burt's Bees, it's a natural skincare brand that has been around for decades, and they are free of petrochemicals, phthalates, parabens, or sodium laurly sulphate and they also don't test on animals.


This is a very thick hand cream, it almost feels like a combination of a hand cream and a balm. If you are always looking for a heavy duty hand cream, then I recommend this one! The beeswax is also supposed to shield your hands from the elements, which can help if you have sensitive skin or allergies.

You really only need the tiniest amount to keep your hands hydrated, or you can use a bit more as a hand treatment (I have been wearing it like this to bed). Since this hand cream is so thick, it also works well on dry patches and I have also been wearing it on my elbows. Like most thick moisturisers, this does feel a little greasy on your hands. However, I definitely have other hand creams that feel a lot greasier (and less hydrating) than this.


The one thing that may divide people when it comes to this hand cream, is the scent. This smells very strongly of almond (which makes sense since its an almond milk hand cream). This marzipan scent does fade, but it is still very strong and you will be able to smell it for a while after applying it. . If you like the scent of almond the you will LOVE this hand cream, but if you hate that scent then steer clear of this because this may be unusable for you. Personally almond isn't my favourite scent, but I don't hate it. So even though I don't make orgasmic faces when I smell this, I don't have an issue with it.

Overall I really like this hand cream, and I have been loving using it as my night hand cream. The only questionable part of this product is the scent, and if you are unsure about whether you like a strong almond scent, I recommend smelling it in store before you buy it.

  4. This one has been on my wishlist (along with the banana one). Priceline have Burts Bees on sale at the moment so I'll be picking them up this week or next. Would be even better if they ever get the vouchers out from last quarter :(
