Rated 4 out of 5 by 40SomethingMom from Great for cuticles I tend to get hangnails and dry skin on my fingers, and have been looking for a solution. So far this salve works great. It has softened my cuticles, knuckles and hands. I also have a dry, scaly patch on my knee, and this is definitely helping.I've used it on my lips a few times, but I need something a bit thicker and longer lasting. Works great everywhere else though.A few reviewers have complained that the tin is difficult to open. I wonder if they've worked to improve it, because I have opened 2 of the 3 I bought and they both open very easily. Glad I don't have to fight to get to it. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by N K K from Lips not so much...but everything else = Stellar For me it doesn't seem to help my lips much at all, except on the initial application (which feels like heaven). Doesn't sink in or have any staying power. I've been using a regular store bought staple for years but I'm always hunting for something better. I've tried a lot of the C.O. Bigelow offerings, which are really great at first application, but just don't seem to go the distance for me and I personally hate having to reapply anything constantly. Originally I tried this for my continual dry lips and was sadly disappointed but, when I read it's "all purpose" I figured I'd experiment and I ended up hooked. Living in a desert climate my skin is dry - all the time (never had this issue in the high humidity state I lived in previously) first experiment was my hands (especially after dishes) and a little does wonders, it's not greasy, absorbs nicely and using it a few times a week in place of my other lotions has completely alleviated the rough dry patches. Next was my face, which is very sensitive and prone to break outs and red spots, put a little on at night before bed and next day dry patches are gone, skin is soft and any red spots are faded.. works out well and I need less of my regular face lotion. Hands, face, arms, legs, feet whatever is exceptionally needy at the time (even heels) benefit greatly from using this salve and your skin is so soft and smooth! Since such a small amount is needed it lasts a long time if you use it as a treatment and sub it with your regular lotions/butters. I hope this never gets retired, it's been a face saver with the harsh sun (and handles sunburn better than aloe to me). Size is actually perfect since a little goes a long way and it's easily portable. I had a hard time w/the container as well, but then I sorted out if you did a twist and pull when opening it comes off pretty easy and when I do close it I never put it down the whole way so a slight twist and lift and I'm good to go without the frustration.

Rated 1 out of 5 by kookie0189 from Disappointed This product is a disappointment. The whole idea of how it's supposed to moisturize your lips is false, it sits on top of the dry layer of skin on your lips and after it wears off, your lips actually are really soft...for about 20 minutes and then they go back to being dry and chapped. I wouldn't recommend you buy this product if you already have dry lips because it won't help. I'm disappointed I wasted my money on this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Flobaby from I Sent This to a Friend I have a friend up north who suffers continually from cracked and bleeding lips. I read so many positive things about this product, that I sent a batch to her to see if it would help. She later contacted me and said that it worked wonders! I know what to buy her in the future, and what to buy for myself when colder weather comes. Great product--5 stars.
