Initial Reaction:
It comes in a plastic tube, which is a bit unusual as all the other hand creams are packaged in metal. The ingredients are printed on the back. There is a sentence about how it is “sweetly fragranced” with a high concentration of shea butter to “help protect, nourish and soften your hands.”

This hand cream smells entirely of honey, hence the name. I don’t discern any other scents. The cream absorbs into the skin without leaving any greasy feeling.

After all:
Out of the tube, the cream looked white, but it absorbs clear into the skin. I immediately noticed the scent. After I applied it, I get a whiff of honey every now and then. If scents bother you, I noticed there is a selection to browse from last time I was in the store. I believe the shea butter one isn’t overly fragrant.

I like the plastic packaging. I would imagine that it is easier to get every last bit from plastic than metal. Also, the little illustration is a nice touch.

It does what it claims. I tend to forget about my hands, but this cream will make me want to apply it especially now that we are heading into the cooler seasons.
