Burt's Bees Hand Salve Review #WinterCare

I suffer from eczema on my hands and nape which gets worse in winter time. Though I try my best to manage it appropriately, like drinking lots of water, staying stress-free (hahaha) and keeping my hands covered in gloves with petroleum jelly on, but the truth is I hardly excel at achieving any of that on a regular basis. Firstly, I hate petroleum jelly and gloves. I would do anything to avoid wearing gloves. I despise it; maybe because it makes me feel unable to feel and touch.. 
Anyways, since last year I discovered the Burt's Bees Hand Salve and it changed my life. I no longer suffer from red blisters, or cuts on my knuckles and my hands feel so moisturized even in this extremely dry weather.
More on this in today's blog

One of the ways my body responds to stress is by showing signs of eczema. No one wants itchy red skin that can easily crack and bleed. As the holidays approach, I am not only getting in to the holiday spirit of 'spending' (well, isn't that the opposite of giving?) but also searching for a role in the corporate sector. I can't believe that in 2019, I still have to explain why working from home is not only beneficial for organizations to quickly achieve their goals but it's also environmentally efficient. Having a career in consulting in a virtual environment means a lot of my time is spend on my laptop and cell phone as opposed to commuting. I am actually enjoying the idea of using video calls to communicate than relying on audio teleconferencing in virtual teams. It also means that I need to keep my hands in good working conditions, so they don't feel miserable as I type.

The Burt's Bees Hand Salve has literally saved my hands from drying out. The first ingredient is sweet almond oil and the second is olive oil - both of which I use periodically on my face and hands. It also contains bee's wax which is the most natural form of skin protectant - bees use it to protect honey from UV rays and external factors. It does the same for our skin too.

The Burt Bee's hand salve feels like a solid bar of oil, over which, I need to massage my fingers in circular motion to melt the oils on my fingers and transfer them to my hands and body. It is colorless and has a herbal/rosemary scent. It absorbs quickly in to skin, and I like to use a massaging motion because it completely relaxes my senses. It's a wonderful product to use at night and I feel that it also helps me sleep better may be due to the lavender flower extract in it.

I can't recommend this enough, especially if you have chronically dry skin, then this is something worth trying. I understand that not every product works for everyone's skin and even I have been disappointed by some very awesome products. But I will still urge you to give it a go, if you haven't tried it yet. It retails for only C$13.99 at London Drugs for this 85g tin.
