I noticed while browsing at Bath & Body Works that they had one of my favorite products, the Fresh Picked Hard Working Hand & Body Cream, in new scents for fall. Heirloom Cranberries was one of them. I picked it up, expecting a tart, single note cranberry scent. Nope...not even close!

This is a 6 oz. tube of hand and body cream that comes in a tube with a flip-bottom cap. It comes in just the one size.

The first one of the Fresh Picked Hard Working Hand & Body Creams I tried was the Strawberries scent. I loved that one and wish I had stocked up on more of that scent. This Heirloom Cranberries scent is just as good and the lotion's formula is fantastic.
The cream is white in color and is super thick. A little goes a long way because it's so thick. It absorbs quickly and I never have a greasy residue left on my skin. I find that the moisture lasts all day and never needs to be reapplied. It's a lot like a body butter but is not as greasy. In fact, I would say that it isn't greasy at all.
The scent is to die for. This scent, instead of smelling like straight cranberries, smells like cranberry coffee cake. I can smell the cranberry, but it's more of a warm scent and smells like cake and a touch of cinnamon as well. The scent lasts for several hours and even after lunch if I put my nose near my arm, I can still smell this delicious scent. I know that fall isn't here yet and I have a while to go before it's time for pumpkins, Thanksgiving, etc. when these types of scents are more common. But I don't care, I love this scent! Since floral scents give me a headache, the "foody", fruity and vanilla scents are just about the only thing I can wear.
This is, by far, one of the best scents I have ever used in a bath and body product. I am surprised that a scent like this comes from a national retailer like Bath & Body Works, because this is the type of scent you can get only from smaller e-tailers who specialize in "foody" scented bath and body products like this. As for the hand & body cream formula, it's great and I hope that Bath & Body Works keeps the Hard Working Hand & Body Cream around for a long time to come. It really is a great formula that is easy to use without being greasy or ineffective.
Overall a wonderful product and one that I highly recommend.
