I am always a fan of almond hand creams and hand washes. It's soo homey, warm, uplifting that I always keep it around. It also nourishes the cuticles making it a 2-in-1 hand cream of choice. I am not a fan of almonds in baking or cooking though. I usually get The BodyShop's version, my first time trying out Burt's Bees that is just as good, more perfumey.
