happy hands

I know summer may not be the season where your hands need the most help, but I just had to post about a hand creme that seems to work miracles for me. My hands get really dry and cracked, even in summer, thanks to lots of washing up after kids.

I didn't expect much when I bought the Burt's Bee's Shea Butter Hand Repair Creme at my local Target store. In reality, it worked so amazingly well that I thought there surely must be something bad in it. Burt's Bee's says the product is 98% natural. I checked on Skin Deep and they rated the creme an impressive 2.

I love it and am so happy to have found it. It is $12 for 3 ounces, which is a handy size (pun intended) to keep in your car or purse. I keep it in my night table and use it right before bed.

That's funny -- I just started using some Burt's Bees products as well for my face, and have been pleasantly surprised, too!

I have the Orange Essence face cleanser and the Soap Bark + Chamomile deep cleanser (both are also rated 2 on Skin Deep). I bought them on a whim when I ran out of my much more expensive cleansers, and have been happy with them so far. A bit cheaper, more readily available, and not rated too badly. Yea!
