Birchbox Breakdown

When temperatures dip, our hands get cracked and chapped faster than you can say “ho, ho, ho.” That’s because low humidity and harsh cleansers wreak havoc on skin’s protective barrier and lead to extreme dryness. This balmy cleanser from our favorite apothecary seals in moisture so hands are left soft and supple—never tight or dry.

How to Use

Scoop up a dollop of this balmy cleanser and massage onto hands (it liquefies upon contact with skin), paying close attention to any cracked areas and cuticles. Rinse off under lukewarm water.

Winter Relief

Chapped skin is the worst! Every winter, even if it's not that cold outside, I seem to suffer from it. Enter C.O. Bigelow Chapped Hands cleanser. It takes a bit of getting used to as I normally use liquid hand soap, but the difference is night and day. My skin feels great after I wash my hands and I get fewer cracks and hang nails. I use this whenever my hands could use a little TLC. Do follow the instructions though and massage into dry hands first. Due to the high oil content, applying to wet or damp hands will not have the desired effect.

True saviour

If there was ever the ultimate saviour for dry cracked chapped and bleeding hands, this is it! I suffer terribly every fall and winter and this cleanser is part of my daily ritual. I use it twice a day (but that's because it so good I don't want to waste it all). Totally recommend this product to someone who is tired of useless hand creams.

Not as good as I thought

I purchased this due to reviews here and I'm only glad I used points to purchase. I've tried it and although I like the silky feel, it just didn't leave my hands soft and supple as advertised.

Saves my hands and skin

This is an amazing product. I have severe eczema especially during the winter months. It soothes, calms, heals, refreshes and truly saves my hands.

I love this stuff. For an alternative to hand soap, this cleanser is perfect. It coats your hands with a balm like texture and rinses off leaving them feeling moist and protected.
