Hate the tin, love the product.

This stood up to 2 huge tests with "I can't believe it!" results.

First off, I have 3 cats. And they can be a bit... playful, reckless... okay INSANE (lol). One night I dozed off on the couch. My cats decided to play tag - chasing each other. Over my face. Yes - one jumped up and ran over me, the next followed suit... I woke up feeling a CLAW going down the side of my face as he ran over me. Those with cats know, that cat scratches DO leave scars. I freaked. I had a huge gash - a LONG huge gash right from the outer part of my eyebrow down my cheek to my lips. OMG was I... worried. I did not want to henceforth be known as "Scarface". Thanks to Burt's Bees, I have NOTHING... NARY a mark. And trust me, I have various scars from similar scratches on my arms, hands etc... I wish I had known about this stuff sooner. Aside from taking out the sting, when applied (somewhat frequently) I can honestly say this stuff completely prevented any scar from forming. And as I've said - I have tried everything from Neosporin to Coco Butter to Vitamin E on other catscratches, but this is the only one that actually did something to prevent any permanat damage. It also DID seem to heal quite a bit faster (and it was plenty 'deep'!)

Second test was rug burn. NO get your mind OUT of the gutter lol. I was cleaning the brass legs of my coffee table and when finished looked at my poor little knees. This stuff REALLY soothed the burn... I mean it felt completely 'normal' again - no sting! And again, healed very quick.

Definitely a product I would hope to 'avoid' using... but when life throws its curveballs, this is the stuff to grab to fix 'em! continued >>
