VINE VOICEon January 21, 2011
I'm a guy, with my hands rough, scraggly, and bleeding from hot water and strong dish soap, hand sanitizer, and six months of wintry dry air and washing baby bottles. Tried several of my wife's skin creams to no real effect.

Last night I ripped open the box from Amazon and applied this not-very-greasy mixture to my sorry skin three times. This morning my hands are very very close to fully healed. Not as soft as my baby's bottom, but soft enough to not snag my tee shirt when I put it on. Stuff smells pretty good to me, too. Mild Eucalyptus like the steam room at the gym - no girly girl aroma on these manly paws.

The container is the size of a large shoe polish can. Easy to stow in a drawer or even a jeans pocket. They label this stuff "a farmer's friend." Now it's my friend, too.

Thank you, Burt, whoever you are.

I have 2 things nobody ever wants to have

1. Extremely dry hands.
2. Dyshidrosis - a very aggravating form of eczema.

Since switching to only pure soap like Ivory & Yardley's Oatmeal soap.
The Dyshidrosis has healed up well.
However I was still left with very scaly & hard skin.

Using the combination of a foot file & this product on my hands
has really made a huge difference.
I can actually feel soft, breathing, healthy skin on the palms of my hand.

The key in using this product is to use it in steps.
Don't apply too much too fast.

Think of it like washing & waxing your car.
The same principle applies here.
A good wash, then thin layers buffed well give the best results.

There is no water base, so first wash your hands well & let the water
absorb into your skin a bit & pat dry.
Then scoop out a tiny amount & place it into the palm.
Work it in really well all over the hands & in-between the fingers.
Then just apply a tiny bit more a second time after about 10 min.
Your skin will actually absorb the bulk of the oils & be replenished,
without that oily feeling.
You will feel the protection without it feeling unnatural.

Smells good. Doesn't leave you feeling clammy like lotion does. It's a good moisturizer, but beware the grease! Oh, and don't leave it in the car - it melts all over. Save it for nighttime.

I have used a lot of products-- dozens if not hundreds. As a chronic hand washer, I have struggled to find a product that will heal my hands and make them feel good in the winter. Washing overdries my skin, big time. I chronically have had cracking and bleeding from Thanksgiving through Easter.

Burt's Bees hand salve is the best-- better than vaseline products, olay, avon, neutrogena, and the likes. Believe me, I have tried them ALL without success, and some even burn if you have an open crack that has been bleeding. If you have an open crack or super dry skin, applying this liberally gives immediate relief and helps over the next few hours until you should re-apply. While I will admit it's very oily, when you're in this much pain it doesn't matter. It also works extremely fast and washes off easily if needed. It smells good to me, some don't like the smell. It smells like it's name, a combination of a beeswax and honey or something.

After a week or so, your hands will be cleared up, silky smooth and feel great. It's also great for tattoos that look blue when they should be black (you know the old sailor tattoos, etc). Putting it on right before bed works wonders.

I love this stuff. I work in dog grooming so my hands go through a lot, dripping wet, force dryer yet still wet that entire time while helping direct the air and the water splashing up from the fur, to soaking wet again. As I'm sure you get it my hands go through a lot. And I drink water constantly, yet my hands were so cracked from dryness that they were starting to bleed, they hurt, they were horrible looking, I had been spending so much money on fancy lotions and cheap lotions, creams, ointments, I ordered this Burts bees wax hand salve and it is a miracle, after just one day of using it my hands showed improvement, two days they actually began to be touchable again, three days I am happy to say almost all the way healed up. :-) strongly recommended if you have dry cracked hands that go through a beating daily.

I have horribly chapped hands from working in the coffee industry (sanitizer is killer for a girl's paws), and so am always on the look out for heavy duty salves/creams. This one's ok. In the tin it's this odd, solid form you have to dig into to and iget started, but then it becomes a oily/waxy texture as you rub it onto your hands, and it has a slow set in time.

I've started slathering it on at night, sleeping with gloves on (I know, so cool) to give it extra absorption time, and then following up with a hand cream in the morning. This (more intensive than I'd like) routine keeps my hands from cracking if someone looks at the wrong, but they still resemble an old crone's digits.

I'll keep looking for the perfect solution to dunking my hands in chemicals hundreds of times a day.

does not absorb well at all and unpleasant odor. I love the Burts bees for chapped lips, this, however, was very disappointing.

This is the best product when your hands have been dried out/chapped/ ragged and bleeding cuticles. (Think harsh work - gardening or cleaning or painting without gloves.) Just wash up and apply - instant transformation; trim up your cuticles and you will be amazed the difference one application makes. The ecalyptus smell is lovely - I guess not for you if you love the fake floral/fruity lotions which for me, aggravate allergies and give me a headache. The tin is convenient to drop in your purse.

I LOVE this hand salve. I work with children and have to wash my hands about 50 times a day. My co-worker and i use this salve everyday.

It is a bit greasy at first, but once it soaks in it feels normal and heals your skin.

The fragrance is nice, not masculine or feminine, and the smell goes away after the products soaks in to your skin.

Let's face it, the price it amazing.

I work in a resturaunt, so I have to wash my hands dozens of times a day. Plus I work on cars a lot as a hobby. My hands would get extremely dry and cracked, and they would even start bleeding in the winter. Burt's Bees hand salve is the only stuff I've found that completely cures my dry, cracked hands.
