It doesn't smell all that good but it sure works well on my cuticles. It is a good product for dry skin. The smell dissipates quickly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by MrsKette Did not work
Unfortunately, this product did not work for me. The extremely strong perfume made me sneeze--although I have no allergy to perfume. This product is too greasy, difficult to be absorbed even by my dry-skin hands. L'Occitane shea-butter hand cream is way superior and delivers what it promises--with the added benefit that it doesn't smell strong.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bookish A good hand moisturizer
This product goes on feeling greasy but is absorbed as you work it in. It is a heavier moisturizer. I don't know if it actually repairs, heals or soothes irritated skin. It probably protects the skin from becoming chafed or dry. It has a strong herbal fragrance but most people say they like the smell. I didn't like it when I was pregnant.
My husband is a steam fitter, so his hands take a beating. He really likes this product. The fragrance is not feminine.

Rated 2 out of 5 by EWags It's a texture thing for me.
To be honest, this is the only Burt's Bees product I've tried but cannot use. The tube I purchased may have been old because the smell was very rancid and the lotion was VERY oily. I am sad about this because I bet I would have loved this. I just had a bad experience with it and had no other choice but to throw it out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SureBee 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 5 out of 5 by Venuschild Best Hand Cream - Period.
I have very dry skin; yet most salves take a bit for my skin to absorb, while thinner hand lotions evaporate almost as soon as I apply them. This Shea Butter Hand Repair Cream is the perfect "Goldilocks" for my hands. Even after washing my hands and before applying the cream, my hands stay very soft. I've been using the cream for at least a decade or so, and plan on continuing for more decades to come!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MumzyF Great for the gardener!
Sure the smell is a little strange, but you get past that pretty quick when to start to realize how well this product works on chapped hands! Love it!

Works to prevent dry and cracked Winter skin. I live in Ohio and I know the effects of Winter on skin.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mrzbb Works Well!
This hand cream works very well! It left my hands feeling very soft, smooth, and hydrated. Wasn't greasy or oily like most hand creams. Only thing I don't like is the smell, I was expecting a sweet smell. But the smell is something I can get over.

I have had problems with very dry cuticles and nails my entire life. After trying Shea Butter Hand Repair Cream my nails and hands have done a complete turnaround. I actually don't hide my hands anymore because they look great. Thanks Burt's Bees!!

Got this as a gift from my sister. We both suffer from dry, cracked, skin on hands and feet. It was so soothing! After applying to hands, I rubbed the excess onto my feet and it helped even the dry cracked heels.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lonegunkim Best hand repair cream ever
The Burt's Bees Shea Butter Hand Repair Cream is my favorite hand cream. Working with fibers every day really dries out my hands. They look horrible. But using this cream regularly really did help to moisturize and soften my skin. My hands went from awful and dry to healthy and moisturized.

Rated 4 out of 5 by AssassinPsyche Not just for hands.
I remember I got a tiny tube in the hand bag along with another hand cream, gloves, and cuticle cream. I admit, at first I absolutely loathed the smell like many other people. Using it however it grew on me, perhaps it is an acquired taste...er, smell?
So reading the reviews I found Burt's Bees on response that it was supposed to smell like that but what got me was the fact that it was originally for the sensitive skin on your chest but worked well for hands to.
Being curious I tried it. It worked so well! I use it now there and it makes my skin smooth and supple.

My hands get so dry and cracked in the winter. This cream is perfect for helping them heal. I also like the different but refreshing scent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Depgirl247 Best on the market
I have been using this product for 25 years and I still haven't found a better product for extremely dry hands. I use it all day, but it works best when applied at night before bed. If you have cotton gloves, it will work better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CandacePie Love the effectiveness and quickness
I read ALL the reviews before purchasing this. I hate wasting money and have a lotion graveyard in my room. I am a full time mom and also work from home, I am constantly washing my hands, cleaning, dishes, typing, paperwork, etc etc. Winter really effects my hand also. They are always dry and rough. I put this on before bed, and my hands are still nice and silky soft this morning. The smell is horrific, my daughter said I smelt like I was cleaning the floor. If you can get past the smell, its a must have!

Rated 3 out of 5 by dogmom Can't get past the smell
I love the way this cream goes on and how it makes my hands feel. However, I can't get past the smell. It's putrid and rancid. Two reasons why I haven't tossed it out: 1. I like how it makes my hands feel. 2. It was expensive.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sallygirl Interesting smell
I checked this site because I wanted to see if anyone else thought the smell was "unusual" to say the least. I was afraid maybe my tube was old or spoiled or something. I'm not crazy about the smell--but I love the feel of the lotion and my hands are already looking and feeling better after only 4 days of use! So...guess I'll keep using it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Simone20 Horrible Scent
I could not get past the scent of this hand cream. Very strong odor and I ended up tossing it out. Go back to the drawing board with this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by marymary nice cream
I just opened the tube this week so it may be early for a review. Have dry patches on the back of my hand which I hope to remedy with this cream. Feels nice so far.

This stuff does smell like you want to run away from it. But don't. It works great on your hands.

My hands have improved 100% with Shea Butter hand repair cream. It's not fun being a lady with rough hands, but I do lots of outside work at my home business of raising Great Danes. Harsh detergents & bleach are not your hands friends but this product is your best friend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ekmacula Great intensive treatment
I absolutely love this stuff. It smells fantastic, and it works wonders on dry patches. I use it on my elbows, knees and feet as well, especially during winter. It takes a while to absorb, so it's best as a nighttime treatment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by funkycoldmedina super natural relief for dry hands
I love to use this product when my hands are really dry. I put on at night and wake up with smooth hands. Helps relieve chapped hands and restores cuticles.
