I used to work for a retail store that sells C.O. Bigelow, and let me tell you, out the million things we sold for dry skin/lips, this is my favorite. Only downside is the application because I have long nails AND I'm a germ freak but this balm is so good I can get over it every time. It tastes good, feels amazing on rough spots anywhere on the body and my boyfriend even caves and uses it on his dry elbows every once in a while. I can't say enough good things about it!
