Review: Burt's Bees Beeswax And Banana Hand Cream

Review: Burt's Bees Beeswax And Banana Hand Cream

ISLM Writer: Nimisha

The other day when our lovely Sam posted about the best buys from Sephora, I couldn't help but notice the Burt Bee's Hand Salve. That was enough to push me off to a stroll to Phoenix Market City.
Yup, that's where you find Sephora in the hustles of Pune.

So guys, I was talking about the Hand Salve. I had heard rave reviews about the lip balms that they offered. But man, honestly they have the best of skin care stuff. They even stock Baby Bee products for teeny munchkins (aka babies). :D
So, I thought of trying something new specially since I do not have dry skin; its just more dehydrated.

And here I present the Burt's Bees Beeswax and Banana Hand Cream. They stock one more variant of this cream: Beeswax and Almond and well, I wasn't as impressed by the fragrance. So, this beauty comes in a sturdy glass jar with an aluminium screw cap. It retails for a whooping ₹1450 for 57 grams. Yip, its expensive.

But, a little goes a long way. All you need is a pea size scoop of this butter (it does look like butter and smells like bananas) and you are good to go.

I absolutely LOOOOVVEEE the smell of it; so much that I have to tame myself with banana smoothies in the morning. Well, the husband happily makes it for me too (in order to save him the pain of me sniffing around the jar in my hand) *monkeyface*

So, what I have is parched hands that too in summers. Oh and for the record, I do not have dry-hands in winters.

Till date, I was super impressed by the hand creams that L'Occitan offers; but this butter moisturises my hands so well. I have started to love it beyond leaps and (no) bounds :D

It sinks in, does not leave the skin or palms greasy. This is hands down the best hand cream I have tried.

1) Does not leave the skin oily. Sinks in perfecto!
2) Need a teeny bit for moisturising the hands.
3) It can be used for dry elbows, ankles as well as knees!
4) Does not contain any parabens or petrolatum or SLS.
5) Contains the goodness of Aloe.

1) Scooping off the jar, yes, it might be a bit messy for some. (Not that I mind it)

Yip yip, for sure. Its a must-have. I don't mind the pricing per se.


  1. Moisturizes without making the hand oily or greasy, sounds like my kind of hand cream :D

    1. I swear! I think I need to try this out as well... Thank you for letting us know about the product Nimisha ♥

    2. Oh guys, I am sure you are going to love it! ❤️

  2. wow...this is something i need in my life.

    1. I am glad you find it interesting. Do try out and let us know.

You all know that I love tweaking my blog here and there and making some changes, introducing newer features and well sometimes just hooking the blog onto some social networking site :) Well this time I am introducing a new feature that I promise will be really exciting for all beauty enthusiasts :) To start with this feature is called "Cover The Cover" where I shall be covering the cover pages of our favorite beauty and fashion magazines in terms of make-up. There are times when a certain look on a celeb or a fashion mag just gets to us.

Review of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Longwear High Impact Stick - Fuchsia Fame
Right now am sitting at the dining table trying to figure out a way to start this post in an "interesting" way... I am obviously struggling... There are these times when your mind just goes blank and you can't think of anything, right? Yeah, I am having one of those moments...

So, I guess I'll directly dive into the review and not mull around. I bought the L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick on a whim... I was out window shopping at Shoppers Stop and I just happened to glance at the L'Oreal counter and this cute little stub caught my fancy... The moment I swatched it I knew I had to buy it...

Price of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick It costs a whopping INR 999/-

There is nothing much to talk about the packaging. It is exactly what it looks like, a rotating chubby stick with a cap. The plastic doesn't seem cheap and is pretty sturdy. I have d…

How I Wear My Denim Jacket To Be In Trend for 2018

How I Wear My Denim Jacket To Be In Trend for 2018 Denim is forever. It's versatility makes it a classic and in the form of a jacket it not just looks dapper and en vogue but is also comfortable and convenient... I love denim jackets because they are perfect for Pune's so called Winters and because they are the best accessories for any kind of outfit...

Going through some of the Fall Winter 2017-18 collections from the likes of Calvin Klein, Christian Dior and Stella McCartney, denim on denim seemed to be the trend in boxy and boyish silhouettes. I am not a very big fan of denim and denim and hence I prefer to pair my boxy denim jacket with a flowy, floral dress that makes the look strike a balance between feminine and androgynous.
