Burt's Bees Beeswax and Banana Hand Creme

25.11.11

If you love the smell of bananas, this product is a must for you.  Initially the fragrance was the only reason that I purchased, but it's fast become my wonder product for protecting my hands from being chapped in the colder weather.  I suffer from eczema on my hands, and having to put tables up and down at work aggravates a small patch of it on the palm of my hand.  Nothing was helping to get rid of this, and before I started using Burt's Bees I was debating having to go back to the doctors to get some more smelly prescription cream.  A week or so of using this and there's no sign of dry skin in sight.

It's got a solid, creamy consistency and my one bug-bear is the fact that you have to gouge product out with your fingers.  Not a problem when you've got short nails, but I can imagine this being a nightmare for anyone who likes their nails longer.  It also says you should apply whenever you wash your hands, but I've found this to be impractical and I still get great results from just applying a few times a day.

It's a good size for in your handbag (click here to get an idea of how big the jar is) and has kitsch packaging which looks great.  You can pick this up for £9.99 in Boots, or you can get the same 55g jar for a couple of pounds cheaper here.
