Review - Burts Bees - Banana and Beeswax Hand Cream

Hello again my lovely readers, I thought today I would do a quick review on a product I have recently purchased. I'd also like to say that I will always be painfully honest with my reviews, good or bad. OK, with that said... lets crack on shall we?

                                         Burts Bees - Banana and beeswax Hand Cream.

Now I am a fan of Mr Bees, I have had a fair few products from the range and nearly always been impressed. I was most excited when I saw this Hand Cream as I love banana scented products (I'm childish like that.) 

I've been using this product for a few weeks now, I am an avid hand moisturiser, I am constantly trying new products and brands and trying to find a nice one. Dry hands on me or others makes me cringe.

On opening this hand cream you can smell the banana instantly, it's a real yummy banana smell, a little bit like those foam banana sweeties. Yum. The texture is fairly thick, as in, you could turn the jar upside down with the lid off and nothing would come out.

It settles into the skin nicely and leaves a lovely scent and also a kind of film across the skin which I'm guessing is the beeswax, this also acts like a mini barrier. Now, I like that as I get dry hands and they need the extra help, but I'm guessing if you don't like heavy products on your hands then this may not be the best choice for you.

All in all, with it's lovely scent and how it kept my hands soft for ages this product gets an 8/10 from me. The only downside is the price, it costs nearly £8 for 57g.

Well this was a bit long winded wasn't it? I shall try and keep reviews a tad shorter in the future..
