Burt's Bees - Hand Salve

I bought this at Sephora, it came in a 3-pack with the lip balm and the cuticle butter. You can read more about the lip balm here.

This is just a small 'testing' tin, it's 8,5 g while the larger tin is 85 g. It is quite easy to just throw it in you purse and use it throughout the day, but I never do so. The reason why I don't is because this stuff is SUPER oily! I used it once during the day and it took ages for it so absorb. It is effective though. I use it as an overnight treatment, and in the morning my hands are super smooth. Because it's such a small tin, I had some problems getting a decent amount of product out of it. You really have to work your finger in it for it to budge. Also, the smell is really strong. I like it, but I understand if someone else doesn't. It's has eucalyptus in it, I think that's where the smell is coming from. It's a bit of a medical smell I think?

You should've seen my friend's face when she applied this on her lips, mistaking it for the lip balm. Priceless! ;D

- 98% natural
- super soft hands

- really oily substance
- smell puts most people off
- hard to get product out of tin at first
- takes a while to absorb into the skin

I'm really glad I could test this product because I wouldn't have bought it otherwise. I don't think I'd buy a large tin, I like a more creamy substance to moisturize my hands, preferably with a nice pump so I didn't have to dip my finger in the jar (germs..).

Hope that helped!

  1. Ik dacht dat het best een goed product was... Want het is nog best prijzig. Maar die geur alleen al. Bah. Ik gebruik mijn vertrouwde vaseline. Liefs, xxxxx
