Love it!
Sampled

I love the way this feels on my skin. I only used the sample on my face, and it is one of the few things that totally helped with my dry skin.

Love it

This stuff is great. Received a sample one month and have been using it as facial moisturizer now that the drying winter air is here. Smells and feels sorta like Carmex but absorbs nicely and the camphor smell goes away in seconds. Made out of only a few good ingredients so I feel that that not only does it work, but it's made out of good stuff too.

Great moisture
Sampled

I received a very small sample of this moisturizer and it immediately felt different than ones I've used in the past. My skin is naturally a bit dry, and it seemed to soak right in. I also liked how smoothly my foundation went on afterward. I plan to purchase this product.

Does the job

The cream is really moisturizing and seems to take care of dry areas as promised, however, the smell is very unpleasant for me.

A household staple
SampledPurchased

Lose one star for the slightly weird camphor smell, but you do get used to that. This product, however, is amazing. It works so well for dry skin and severely chapped lips. I think everyone in the house has used it this winter, I will never be without it in this house now, it works that well for dry skin and other skin irritations.

After a lot of uses, I realize this is incredible stuff
Sampled

My boyfriend wanted a cure for his constant cut lip and this was it! it really does do the trick. It is soothing and he says he doesn't wake up with his lips chapped, dry, or the middle of his upper lip with a minor cut. Will buy full size product soon!

worked well

This moisturized my hands really well. I do dishes a lot and it helped to heal the cracks. The only thing that I didn't like was that it doesn't smell very good.

my cuticles have never looked better
SampledPurchased

I've always had very dry cuticles, no matter how much lotion/cuticle butter/whatever else I slathered on them. Always just dry and scaly and gross looking (definitely made worse by the fact that I work outside in the woods much of the year). Nothing's ever worked better than this, my nails look one million percent better than ever before (one million!). Also nice on lips after exfoliating and on any other very dry patches.
