Keeping your hands soft

Hands-down (arf arf) my favorite hand creme. (And basically, I’m posting about it right now because I used a shop washroom and my hands are now feeling the pain of the soap from there.)

Burt’s Bees Almond Milk Beeswax Hand Creme. Smells lovely, if a bit strong. You don’t need to use much. You can use it on your feet as well. And it’s all natural. I like to keep a jar in my knitting bag. (Well, my knitting bag is also my handbag as well, when I don’t mind carrying a simply enormous bag.) I like most of Burt’s Bees products, but this definitely falls into the “love” range.

Will solve most cuticle problems too, but if you need extra help there, try the Lemon Butter Cuticle Creme. Yum.

Available in the US and the UK and lots of other places.

    I love the scent of this stuff, but hate the texture. I’ve bought a few jars of it thinking maybe the last one was “bad” because it was rock hard, but they all seem to be that way. Now the cuticle cream…I have little tins of that stashed everywhere. :-)

      Natural products are always a bit weird. In this case, the beeswax often sort of rises to the top of the jar. Try mixing the creme up or, in hardcore cases, try zapping the glass jar (minus top) in the microwave for just a few seconds until the beeswax on the top softens up a bit. Often the stuff in the middle and bottom is much softer because the wax in the creme has sort of floated up to the top.

  2. Ah damn, they have gone the way of many another hand cream and used citrus products.
    Between my allergies to citric acid, citrus fruit oils, and sunflower oil there is very little on the shelves I can use. (topical vitamin C also gives me a rash)

  3. Amazing such a important websites.|
