Good for what it is

I enjoyed this product and thought it did its job I just didn't find it to be amazing or anything but I'm kinda picky when it comes to hand creams and expect miracles.

Not a fan

Just very thick, honestly kind of reminded me of bag balm. Would not purchase, because I prefer other things more.

Not What I Expected
Sampled

I definitely had some expectations for this product upon receiving it in my box and reading more about it. In essence, I thought it would be just another moisturizer, but I hoped it would be a little thicker and maybe work *better* or something. I have dry skin, especially in the winter, so I was eager to see how my skin would react to this product when it's at its driest.

The first thing I wasn't expecting was the color. It comes out of the tube as a pale-medium yellow color, but as you rub it in it kind of turns white against your skin and then sinks in. This product is also being described and marketed as "fragrance free" but this is not true. It has a pretty strong smell at first, especially if you're applying it to your face. It smells like Vicks or eucalyptus. After a few minutes, though, the product soaked into my skin and I could no longer smell it. Having now applied it about an hour ago, my skin is still slightly dewy to the touch and overall moisturized.

I am pleased with this product, although I have another moisturizing cream that I prefer over this.

Great for chapped lips!
Sampled

This "cream" is great for super chapped lips and skin in the winter..but I would't call it a cream it's more of a mix between Carmex and Vasoline. It does a great job!

Although this product reminds me a lot of Carmex brand products, I really enjoy it. It works just like it's supposed to and I enjoy the smell of it.

Heavy moisturizer
Sampled

Very moisturizing, on the heavy side. For that reason, I didn't use all over face. Seems effective, but sample size was small. Smell was a little strange as well

The smell
Sampled

Although this product was effective, I could not get over the smell. I really did not care for the distinctive smell and I have tried other products through Birchbox that provide similar results without the smell. Not for me
