Birchbox Breakdown

Ginkgo trees can live for over a thousand years—so they know how to withstand a little hardship. It’s no surprise, then, that this gingko-infused balm is more than a match for the harsh conditions our hands endure: The rich formula heals dryness, soothes irritation, and protects skin, leaving our hands soft and healthy-feeling.

How to Use

Massage into hands whenever they feel irritated, rough, or dry. (We like to keep this balm by the sink, and smooth some on after washing up.)

For Needy Hands

It feels thick when you first put it on but after rubbing it in my hands feel so soft! It really helps around the cuticle area and mine were always extra dry and cracking.
It also lasts and for me, handling papers and working at a computer all day, it's a keeper. Also smells amazing!

Best hand cream ever!!!!

I received a full size of this in one of my beauty boxes and fell in love! When you first put the lotion on your hands it feels thick like a typical hand cream, but as your smooth it over your hands it starts to thin out and has the most comfortable feel. It moisturizers my hands like crazy and leaves them like I just put on a hand oil without any oily feel. The formula absorbs quickly and it smells so good! This is my absolute favorite hand cream that I will continue to buy. $17 is a little high but you only need a little at a time, so it will last awhile. I think it will be hard to top this one for me.

Pricey but worth it!

Ordered my 2nd full size after receiving sample. BEST hand cream/balm ever. Thick, fresh light scent (can't stand the heavy perfume hand creams). I use morning and night especially around my cuticles, back of hands, finishing off on arms. Love!

I love this!

So rich and creamy, super soft hands after using it. It smells great and lasts a long time. A little goes a long way.
