If you're in the market to buy a hand salve that's all natural, full of the fresh scent of herbs/plants like lavender and rosemary that you feel you just pounded with a mortar and pestle at that moment and effective then this is the product for you. The texture is just like other hand salves/balms like Bag Balm and Arden's 8 hour balm - pure vaseline. It does NOT absorb easily and sits on top of your hands for a while but I feel like that's what it's supposed to do.I use it as a cuticle softener and love it for that purpose the most.I will use as a hand lotion but only if I know I'm not touching anything but my keyboard for a while (I would be afraid to touch a silk blouse or other item of clothing with these natural oils sitting right on top of my skin).Do NOT buy this product if you are looking for a hand lotion that will easily absorb into your skin greaselessly. This is a salve which is always greasy feeling at first and takes a while to absorb.I also don't like the tin it comes in. I've had other products come in a tin but this one is more difficult than most to open and in the summer when the product is more moist, some of the oils can leak out of the tin into your purse. Yes, I would buy this product but the product is going to last for a very long time.

i bought this thinking it'd work a miracle for my hands during winter. but... i am not impressed. don't get me wrong- it's not a horrible product! i like its thick texture, but i have tried better products. i don't wake up in the morning with baby soft hands and i still see a bit of dry skin.

Don't know what possessed me to try this, I guess maybe bc I had heard good things about Burt's Bees in general in the past. So, I tried this, this past Winter, when my hands were particularly dry. First off, the smell!! I just could not get past the smell!! It is marketed as 'herbal'..I do not mind most herbs, but whatever herbs or herb scents they used in this (sorry it is gone as I type this review), it strongly disagreed with my nose. Second, it did nothing to help my dry hands. They were not horribly dry (not chapped or anything, just dry). Maybe it was too intense for what I needed..? *shrug* Finally, the container. I get they are maybe going for old-fashioned appeal/looks, but to me, I do not want to dig my fingers into a little jar (getting the product under my nails no matter how careful I am, ick!), I prefer a tube or something similar. I realize this is very thick (wax-like) but I just do not care for the container. I know that is just personal preference though, and really bears no merit on the rating. I could overlook the smell and the container if the product worked. However, this is one of those products that for whatever reason, actually made my hand more dry and even a little cracked after using. No bueno. Will not re-purchase and would not recommend. It must work for some, bc this has been around for ages. Just did not work for me.

I don't think I've ever loved anything more than I love this. It works great for dry skin and it even made my cuticles look amazing. I don't think it was too greasy, either. I thought it actually soaked in pretty fast and I love how soft my skin feels after. I wasn't sure how I felt about the smell when I first bought it, but I'm so used to it now that I actually really like it. Such a great product

Love this! Great for cuticles, hands, feet, and the super-weird dry patches I've had on my ankles since I was a kid.I don't have a problem with the tin at all, and the moisture does last. I think people who have problems with greasiness are applying too much. I apply less than a dime sized amount over my hands, and it soaks in within 10 minutes and provides long-lasting moisture. I use it on my cuticles, too, but apply it more thickly and let it soak in.If the oil is still too much for you, I'd look for the Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream. I love that stuff, too!

I bought this on a whim last winter because my hands were having a serious emergency and nothing I had seemed to be working. This definitely did the trick, and once my hands were better I turned my mom on to it and now she's addicted. One thing that makes it hard to use is that it's so oily, when you put it on you have to really either dedicate some time to letting it soak in or do it right before bed. That said, it's worth making time for because it makes my hands feel absolutely amazing. It also lasts forever, I've barely even made a dent in mine and I've had it for a year. Overall, definitely recommend!

Amazing product!Such a lovely scent (lavender) with a nice texture to it, it softens nicely so you don't end up pulling at your skin whilst applying it and rubbing it in, leaves hands feeling really soft, moisturised and cared for.A little bit goes a long way too, so it might seem pricey, but it lasts! And has good results. The packaging in the bigger tin may be rather awkward to put in a handbag, but the little tin is smaller than a Vaseline tin and fits anywhere with ease. The other negative about the packaging is the potential for contamination, as well as when you're running out so have to scrape it out with your nail, but I can't really think of another way this product could be packaged.Definitely worth buying! <3

I used to use this years ago and decided to purchase it again to prepare for winter. It's a great salve, for sure, but it is very greasy and the smell is a little weird. I don't mind the smell but some folks may find it obnoxious. It makes my hands soft, but that softness only lasts for an hour or so and then my hands start getting dry and I have to reapply it. I guess it's good for what it costs but I won't be buying it again. I'd rather have something that worked in the long term rather than just an hour or two.

I bought this for myself, but found it a bit too greasy so offerered it to my OH as he has very dry hands. However, he found another use for it... as a runner, he used to use vaseline on various bits that chafe (you know where I mean !) but it was hard to wash out of clothing. He loves Burts Bees Hand salve and aparently it works better than anything else he's tried - so if you do sport and want to avoid sore bits, try this !

Hand Salve is some pretty impressive stuff. All winter long, my hands have been dry, cracked, bleeding, etc. (especially between my fingers) I initially purchased Hand Salve at the recommendation of my tattoo artist, it's all they use in his parlor now. My two tattoos have healed quickly and beautifully, no itching or dryness (and only a little shedding). Meanwhile, I also began to use it on my hands as well. I figured it probably wouldn't work, as most hand balms haven't, but the difference is almost immediate. Within a day or so, my hands were completely healed. I apply this several times throughout the work day, and then another Burt's Bees lotion at night. A reminder to those with complaints about the smell of Burt's Bees products, this one in particular is 100% natural. The herbal smell is because of all the botanicals. The purpose of the product is not to smell wonderfully, it's to help heal your hands, hence the line on the tin "A farmer's friend." Hand Salve provides great moisture in an all natural way, and is very soothing on my sensitive skin. If you want to smell pretty, I suggest you get your lotion at Bath & Body Works.
