Honey & Shea Body Butter
Bring Back The Old Formula Please!
I recently bought this product after running out of my shea butter and honey body butter and was not happy at all when I opened the jar at home... what happened??? the smell is too sweet and kinda sour and the texture is not as absorbent and kinda sticky.. not the product I loved and used before.
As many of the reviews already stated.. please bring back the old formula.. it was perfect the way it was!
I love other Bert's Bee's products but definitely will not buy this one again until the old formula comes back!

Disappointed. Please return to original formula
I have been using the "Honey and Shea Body Butter" for years. I absolutely loved it. However, the new formula falls short of the original. The scent is odd and the texture is more like a lotion than a body butter. PLEASE consider returning to the original formula.

Best Body Butter Ever
I run a dog/cat rescue and rehab center called WolfStone Ranch, so I wash my hands a thousand times a day. Which means my hands are often painfully chapped and cracked. Burt's Bees Honey & Shea Body Butter is THE BEST of all the moisturizers I have ever tried because it actually HEALS my painful, injured skin.
But there's a TIP to using this product... KEEP IT IN THE REFRIGERATOR! First, because this product is made from "food", my first jar (years ago) actually started to grow a black mold on it. I scraped it off, and found that the remaining lotion was just fine.
Second, when my hands are sore, they often feel hot, like with an infection. The cool lotion feels especially good on them.
Third, I read another review that said this product smelled "rancid" and I understood what she meant. It does have a funny food-like, but stale smell. But not when it's cold! The scent actually changes slightly and becomes like a delicious gentle perfume!
Fourth, the room-temp consistency is faintly oily. But again, when it's cold, the consistency is (for me at least) just PERFECT! And it soaks into my skin just fine.
I not only recommend this product to friends, I have even bought it as gifts! Please try it, so that more of you will buy it and give it a good review so they won't drop this wonderful product from their line-up!

WORST SMELL EVER
I THOUGHT THE NEW JAR WAS RANCID WHEN I OPENED IT. IF I HAD WANTED TO SMELL LIKE BAD COCONUTS, AND SOUR ALMONDS, I WOULD HAVE USED SOME 10 YEAR OLD SUN TAN OIL! PLEASE TAKE OUT THE NEW IMPROVED NASTY STUFF, ALMOND, COCONUT, ETC.. AND PUT THE GOOD OLD ORIGINAL STUFF BACK IN-- YOU KNOW BEESWAX, ROSEMARY, HONEY. THE ORIGINAL FORMULA WAS SO MUCH RICHER AND DID NOT SLIME UP MY CLOTHING BECAUSE IT WAS ACTUALLY ABOSORBED INTO MY SKIN.
VERY VERY DISAPOINTED IN COMPANY FOR MAKING DECISION TO CHANGE FORMULA. IF I COULD FIND MY RECEIPT I WOULD RETURN IT-BECAUSE IT IS USELESS AS IT IS NOW FORMULATED.
