This stuff works miracles. My hands are always in water at work, cold water, and I deal with a lot of chemicals and hair products which irritate the hell out of my hands. I still like using thick hand creams and lotions, but they don’t heal the same ways salves do. This salve is the consistency of vaseline, it smells just like roses, and you can put it on any dry areas. It can be used as lip balm, rubbed into elbows, or cuticles. It can pretty much be used all over! It takes the redness out of my dry, itchy, red, cracked skin instantly. I put this on upwards of five times a day. C.O. Bigelow is a brand you can find at Bath & Body Works.
