Trial 2 - Burt's Bees Almond Milk Beeswax Hand Crème
- price $8.99 for 2 oz. jar
Trial 3 - L'Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream
- price $12 for 1 oz. tube
- Initial impressions: a little pricey (con), love the small tube for putting in a pocket at work (pro), smells good (pro), very soft and creamy feel (pro), non-greasy (pro).
- Final thoughts: This really does smell good, but it's a little too strong and perfume-y for me. I'm really sensitive to smells, and while I like the smell of this one, it was too strong even after washing my hands! (con) It's a nice hand cream, though, and left my hands very soft (pro). A good cream for some, but not for me.
Trial 4 - Working Hands **the runner-up**
- Final thoughts: makes my hands really soft (pro), also comes as a body lotion (which I also really like!), I seriously love the smell (not too floral, not too medicated, mild). It comes in a bigger tube that's not convenient to keep in my coat pocket, but I will definitely be using this at home or keeping in my drawer at work (con). Not too heavy for daily use, but thick enough to stick around awhile (pro). It is a little more expensive, but pretty comparable when on sale (con). Lately, I've been using this one a couple times a day at home and alternating between this and the Working Hands cream while at work. Seems to do the trick. I'm sold!
