Dry elbows, knees, or hands? This multipurpose balm works there too!

Birchbox Breakdown

We have a love-hate relationship with winter. We love the cozy sweaters and mugs of hot cocoa, but hate how the cold weather leaves our lips dry, cracked, and chapped. This soothing balm, a tried-and-true favorite dating back to the early days of renowned apothecary C.O. Bigelow (they’ve been around since 1838!), is just the fix we need. Toss it in your bag along with an extra pair of mittens and get out there and enjoy the season. Your lips will thank you.

Good on the body
Purchased

This salve made my lips turn red and itchy, and that's really all I can say about how it works as a lip balm. Otherwise, it works decently on cuticles and dry skin, and the smell is nice -- like a sweet rose candy. Please be cautious if using this on sensitive skin.

Barely smells like rose and is overly greasy. Doesn't do anything for my lips that my favorite lip balms do and in fact my favorite lip balms are better and far less greasy feeling on the lips

Love
Purchased

This has become my go-to lip balm. I love the smell and consistency of it. My only complaint is the container can be hard to open, especially after optioning my hands.

Not sticky just perfect
Purchased

You can use this for your lips, cuticles, dry skin - pretty impressive. It isn't sticky like I thought it would be. The only con is sometimes it is hard to open the tin - especially if you've put lotion on your hands first.

Rose Gold

The title says it all rose gold. Not only good for lips but chapped hands and faces too. Outside or washing hands a lot in the winter this is a must.

This is wonderful. Feels great on my lips and has a soft rose scent. Not overpowering. It says it can be used elsewhere but I haven't tried yet. All around nice lip ointment
