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.

Cover The Cover: Harper's Bazaar (India) March 2012

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. Well rather than just mulling over such looks I have decided to give life to such looks (on me) and well do a kind of a faux photo shoot ;) What say? Doesn't it sound like fun? What more? You are all invited to submit your looks with a reference to which magazine and edition you are covering and I'll post it here :)

Today's look is inspired by my latest fav mag Harper's Bazaar. The March edition of Harper's Bazaar is a …

REVIEW & LOTD: Faces Long Wear Pencil in Navy Blue

While doing the "Meet The Bloggers" feature every Saturday, I have realised (and I am sure that you all have too) that Faces is fast becoming a very popular brand amongst us especially the Faces Long Wear pencils. So much so that a lot of people prefer Faces Long Wear pencils to even Colorbar I-Glides and that ladies and gentlemen is quite a feat for a newly launched brand. So anyways, I got myself a "Navy Blue" from this range and I must say that I am very happy with it. This is my second pencil from Faces after "Turquoise Blue" and well it hasn't failed me either.
This particular shade is a beautiful deep blue that looks stunning on the eye lids.

REVIEW: Johnson's Baby Lotion on Adult Skin

I am itching to do some makeup EOTDs and LOTDs since a while now but with guests at home I am not getting any time... So for a while you guys are stuck with me doing reviews. Not that my reviews do not need much efforts but as compared to EOTDs and LOTDs, reviews are a little bit less demanding where time constraints are concerned... Don't you agree? :)

Today I shall be reviewing the Johnson's baby lotion and before you raise your eye brows and say to yourself "WTF" let me make it absolutely clear that I bought it when I was out of a moisturiser and needed one pronto! This was the only one available and so I just bought it. I figured if it was good for babies, how could it be bad for me? The truth? Read on ;)

Johnson's Baby Lotion is Clinically proven to be mild and mild it sure is. It has a soft and soothing fragrance, which I love. Once applied it gets absorbed really fast and does not leave a residual oiliness or greasiness. It would be perfect for normal ski…
