Alternative use - this is the best lip balm I have found. I have perpetually dry lips and saw a dermatologist recommend this.

I hate the smell. And I hate the texture. BUT I feel like I need this in the winter particularly for my hands. My hands dry out from frequent washings and I get tiny little cuts near my knuckles....

I finally broke down and bought one of these, just a one-ounce tube to carry around in my bag. I know magazines, bloggers, etc., tout this as a miracle in a tube. It's great, but I'm not sure I'd...

I use as a facial moisturizer at night and sometimes during the day. Rich, moisturising, beautifying. I do use under makeup but on days when longevity isn't a huge concern. It actually makes makeup...

I wanted to like this because 1) I’ve always loved Weleda and what they stand and 2) I heard all these reviews saying how amazing it is. I do agree that IT IS hydrating but it leaves my fingers...

I heard about this lotion for years and finally tried it as a hand cream. It's thick, like really thick, but it absorbs nice and deep after you rub it in for a bit. Don't use too much, or it can be...

I can't remember who told me to put this on my face but I should have known better. This is like slathering orange-scented butter on your skin—of course it's going to break you out. Unfortunately,...
