Not only does this hand cream and foot cream skin care line keep your skin smooth and buttery, but all of the ingredients are 100 percent natural. The Keep Buzzin' Body Products are never tested on animals and don't contain any of the following — petrolatum, lanolin, phthalates, sodium laureth, oxy benzone or carmine. There is also no added color in this skin care line. The one preservative that is used is propanediol zemea, which is all plant-based and eco-certified.

Immerse yourself in the honey-almond hand cream or the peppermint foot cream for silky, smooth skin.

I love Keep Buzzin Hand and foot cream. Its all natural which is wonderful and it makes my hands feel so soft. I have sensitive skin and it does not cause irritation. My favorite is Honey Almond.

Keep Buzzin' Hand and Foot Creams are so rich and creamy. A little goes a long way! It doesn't feel greasy and the scents are very mellow. My favorite is Honey Almond.

Keep Buzzin' Hand and Foot Creams are amazing! My favorite is the tangerine for my hands and peppermint for my feet. My hands are in water a lot and they have never felt so soft until I started using this product a year ago.

I love the Keep Buzzin' Hand and Foot creams! One of my coworkers discovered the product in a gift shop and it's now the new favorite of several of my friends and family members. I like the Peppermint Foot Cream best but the whole line smells great.
