Magical stuff! It has a great healing power. I apply it anywhere on my skin that needs healing and nourishment. Acts fast! Highly recommended.
This stuff is magic- I've been using it off and on since I was a child, and it really does seem to make everything (including zits) heal faster, and minimize scarring from incidents that would usually leave a mark. Fabulous product!
At some point since i last bought this, the packaging was re-designed. Since a tin of this lasts me a very long time, I have no idea when this happened, but it's definitely for the better. The "new" tin is much easier to open.
That out of the way, I must say that this stuff is a wonder. I've always been a bit klutzy and I tend to bruise easily: big, spectacular, black and purple splotchy bruises that last for weeks. This stuff can't make me more graceful, but with liberal use it does rapidly make the bruises become less noticable, and they disappear in less than half the time that it used to take.
It's not especially expensive, and a tin lasts quite a long time, even at my rather lavish rate of use. This is *not* my first tin, and when I eventually use this one up, I will definitely (re) purchase again.
Man, I love this stuff. I keep the tin in my purse. I apply it if I get a breakout, which is more often then not, chapped skin, or just about any sort of topical ailment. It smells nice, great cute little tin, and it's useful for everything. It also blends easily into the skin for those times when you don't want to goop on the neosporin. I will always keep one of these in my purse. Its natural and it last forever. Good Job Burts Bees.
I love this product. I use it for hang nails, chapped hands and split cuticles (Canadian winter -- what can I say?!). Recently I even used it when I had a head cold and had a red & raw nose from wiping and blowing my nose so often. My nose didn't get as red as usual and I didn't get the dry skin under my nose that usually follows a cold. A great item to carry with you. I like the tin but I found it really hard to pry open for the first use -- and even a few times since if it gets put back on too firmly. continued >>
I really love this stuff. People complain about the smell, but it really just smells like lavender oil, which can smell pretty strong and "woodsy" up close. Lavender oil is good because it's antiseptic, and the other ingredients promote healing.
I use it pretty much everywhere-for cuts and scrapes, zits, even a bit for dry winter hands. I use OCM with coconut oil, and moisturize with a dab more of it. I find if I add a bit of this when I moisturize, it helps heal any existing zits and prevents more from appearing.
All in all, it has great natural ingredients and it works. It's not expensive, and it comes in the cutest little tin! It's really worth having in your purse.
Excellent multi-purpose ointment that you should carry around with you. It does just about everything: cuts, bruises, zits, burns, and lots more. The natural herb ingredients speeds up healing process with no pains Highly recommended!
wow! i love how this ointment helps with almost any flaw i have. it gets rid of acne, cuts ,burns, brusies and etc. i even tried using it as a under eye cream and it actually reduce dark circles too! it so crazy, crazy good!i would definately buy another one of this ointment
I use this as a bit of a neosporin alternative. it's very natural and it's got a real woodsy scent to it. Perfect. Dare I say more?
I've been meaning to write a review for this - this ointment is a god send! it works for zits, bites, burns, dry lips - i can't think of what i haven't used this for! it helps calm just about everything. i had one of those cystic pimples coming up a week before my wedding day - i applied this 3x a day for 4 days and it helped with the redness and eventually the zit disappeared! i'm a total fan of burt bee's - almost all my lotions, creams, haircare products are from burt bee's.
