Awesome stuff! I got the small size in the New Beauty Test Tube and loved it! My lips were a chapped mess and this stuff worked wonders, so I ended up buying the large size. Also worked very well on my dry spots. A little goes a long way.
I love love love this balm. I use it for chapped lips and dry cuticles. In my free time, I regularly rock climb and use chalk to keep my hands and fingers dry. As you might expect, the chalk majorly dries out my skin and causes my cuticles to crack. This stuff keeps a step ahead of the damage and is better than any other balm I've tried. Highly recommend
I LOVE this product. However, I expected more for the $25 price.
Love the slight hint of coconut oil in this product. It felt very smooth and not over-greasy. I bought the small tube, which when very cold can be a little tough to squeeze out, but I enjoyed the product and will buy again when I run out!
