Birchbox Breakdown

From hangnails to dry knuckles, your hands are subject to a whole slew of issues. Luckily, this intense salve provides long-lasting relief to delicate, over-worked hands. Formulated with over ten natural oils and plant extracts, it penetrates deep beneath your skin’s surface, revealing softer skin and revitalized cuticles. Plus, we love how all its ingredients are ethically sourced.

How it Works

Canola, olive, and sweet almond oils soften dry skin while protecting your precious paws from environmental aggravators. Beeswax creates a rich moisture shield and gives the balm its creamy consistency. Free of harsh chemicals like parabens, sulfates, and phthalates, the all-natural formula is perfect for sensitive skin.

How to Use

Apply whenever your hands need an added dose of moisture. For best results, smooth on nightly before bed.

Convenient, but not crazy about it

I have the lemon scent. I used to have a similar product that I loved, but figured I'd give a little tin of this a try.

I will say that it has proven very handy (ha) on the go when I find myself without any lotion. A little smidgen on my cuticles and in between my fingers goes a long way to reviving my hands and making them look less dry.

However, the formula is a little waxy for my preference. If I use more than the smallest dab, it leaves my hands feeling sticky and covered in residue.

I'm not sure if I would buy again. If you do purchase, just know that a little goes a long way! The smallest size available will do.

JR Watkins Salve

I love this product and all of their products! Your skin and nail area are so smooth. I also love their lemon scented products. I wish you would carry more products. They have an awesome pain spray.

Lovely Scent
Purchased

This salve smells lovely, however, it is very oily. When I received it in the mail, part of the product container had oil spots. So I figured maybe it got too hot on the mail truck... but even after being in my house for a day, there was oil residue on the tin can. This isn't a product I recommend you put in your purse, luggage, or bath/beauty pouches unless it's secured in a plastic baggie.

Hand relief!

I tried this for the first time at my sisters house after asking for something to put on my chapped hands. She handed me this wonderful cream that worked great! I instantly felt a difference and it didn't leave my hands oily, just smooth.

Cuticle cream

I liked this product. It was super soft, the smell was not too much, and it made my nail beds really soft and fixed all of my dry skin! It was a little greasy but that is the only negative about this!

Saved my hands!
Purchased

My hands typically get crazy dry and cracked over the winter so I bought this to try as a preventative measure to keep my hands from getting so dry. This product really worked and I noticed the skin on my hands was softer and more moisturized.
