its cold outside and my lips are dry and cracked. my hands are cold and starting to crack because they are so dry. using the hand salve moisturizes my hands and warms them, I no longer see the dry lines on my hands. using (my favorite) original Burts Bee chapstick soothes my lips without "caking" them with waxy guck. I feel warmer and softer already and now even pretty enough to hold my husband's hands and kiss his lips. He has complimented me on my soft hands and soft lips, not greasy hands or caked, waxy lips. Thank you Burt Bees. Winter may not be my best friend when its cold outside, but Burt's Bees definitely helps ease the winter blues.
