Reviewed and recommended: Burt's Shea Butter Hand Repair Creme
While not an expert in scentology, I would say that this creme's fragrance arises from a deeply layered combination of rose, lavender, orange, rosemary and neroli extracts. What's nice about this is that everything is all-natural, as you would expect from the makers of Burt's Bees lip balm.
It's a rich creme, and rightly thick. Shea butter, cocoa butter and sesame oil are the primary agents here, but also nice is the macadamia seed oil, the deeply healing calendula extract, and the borage seed oil, which has some promising research-supported, anti-aging effects, along with the equally wrinkle-reducing rosehip oil.
In addition, Burt's also gives you a healthy dose of vitamin E and some vitamin A in the form of retinyl palmitate (although it's at the bottom of the ingredient list, so I doubt that it's at a high enough concentration to be effective).
However, there's still so much good in this creme that it's definitely worth the $12.
