Shea Butter Hand Repair Cream
Rated 4 out of 5 by WildKatGal from The fragrance burns my eyes, but the cream works. I still can't figure out what the fragrance is, but the first time I put this on my hands was at night, and the odor literally burned my eyes. I now use it long before going to bed. I still don't like the smell (and I wish Burt's Bees would tell us what that "fragrance" is because every review site I see talks about it), but it IS the best hand cream I've ever used. A little goes a long way, and it's absorbed quickly. The smell does go away after a while. Burt's Bees--please offer an unscented version of this miracle cream.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Andrea1661 from I am forever in love I've been buying this cream for years now and I will not stop. A lot of people say the smell is off putting but to me smells incredible! it is like aromatherapy and moisturizer, it is amazing my hands and elbows love this cream. If you have rough elbows or very dry hands and you like natural ingredients, this is the product to buy. They kind of changed the way the presented the cream and I was afraid they change the scent too, but now this one is even better! You will not regret this purchase. Excellent! in fact if they could sell it on a bigger amount I would be definitely buying it! Thank you.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Short Changed from Buyer Beware! I bought this handcream about 2 months ago. Not only did I find the cream greasy and not very nice smelling, but the squeeze container also split down the side. When I tried to squeeze cream out, it came out the proper end, as well as out the side seam. When I complained to customer service, I told them where I bought it, and they sent me $15 in coupons. When I tried to purchase the same item at the same store, I found that it was more than $15. So, if you need to complain to the Burt's Bees company about a faulty product, expect to be short changed. I will not be buying their products again. -from a dissatisfied customer

Rated 1 out of 5 by ChrisA1 from Terrible smell! I bought this product today for my daughter (have liked all the Burt’s Bees products purchased previously). When she opened it, she said it must have gone bad as the smell was so awful. I thought she was exaggerating but no...it is REALLY bad. It doesn’t smell at all like Shea. It smells medicinal and off. To call it Shea butter is misleading. It’s so bad, I can’t use it (and I don’t normally waste something I’ve bought but it just can’t be used). Really disappointed. Wish I could get my money back. BTW, I am in my 50’s and this is the first negative review I’ve been compelled to write. Would love to hear back from the company.

Rated 4 out of 5 by emews from Pros and cons My hands are extremely dry and sensitive and this lotion does help to keep my hands happy. I will say, it is really hard to get out of the container, I mean you really have to squeeze. The smell and texture can also be off putting. It is just very thick and slick so it takes a bit longer to coat your hands. It is also quite greasy since it is such a heavy moisturizer. I much prefer the baobab ultimate care hand cream for daytime because it is lighter and just as moisturizing without being greasy. I've been using it for a while since I ran out of the baobab cream, but I'll definitely be moving it to my night time routine because that seems to be a better place for it. So overall, I'm not mad at it, but it is very heavy for daytime. It takes some planning to figure out when you should put it on so you can let it absorb fully. It definitely does its job though and is a good moisturizer!

Rated 4 out of 5 by burtsbaes from Unpleasant Scent This hand cream would get 5 stars from me if it weren't for the off-putting smell. Sesame oil is very strong smelling so it makes the cream's scent very bitter and herbal. Regardless, it's an excellent hand cream and I'm going to keep using it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SureBee from Best Hand Repair Cream I've used. I am a veterinarian and wash my hands repeatedly every day at work and wash a lot of dishes at home. My hands tend to dry out a lot in the winter. I have tried numerous topicals to help this, but this hand repair cream applied each night works better than anything else I've used. I would highly recommend it even for the driest hands.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Carolea from Wish I had read reviews about scent! This really stinks, but it does feel good. I can't take this to work, it would disturb most people. Also, there's a bit of sticky residue until it all is absorbed. It really works, so I would recommend it, but the scent is so irritating, I can't give it 5 stars.
