My dad swears by this for winter hands so I tried it while at their house for the holidays. After 1 night, my dry cuticles were much better, and after 2 nights, the little painful tears at the edges of my fingertips were all cured. Amazing stuff. I even used it on my feet one night and it softened them up too.

I can see where some people wouldn't like the smell...it's a bit "spicy" I guess...would appeal to people who prefer a rosemary or basil or minty or bergamot kind of fragrance. It's not flowery at all. I personally LOVE the scent.

ANyway if you use it before bed you won't smell it for too long! And in the morning your hands will be like butta. Or close to it.

I have severely dry skin and I keep a hand lotion at my desk at work and use it all the time. I thought this might be a good substitute but it does leave your hands feeling greasy and I always have to wipe them off. Now I'm using it at night before going to bed and putting on gloves over it. It's FABULOUS when used this way!

        Strong lavender scent. I dont use this on my own hands, but use this on my small dog as a body balm. With as much as I love Burts Bees, this is not for me.

        Feels great on hands but the strong scent makes me reluctant to use it. If I knew it was that strong, I would not have purchased it.

          Comments about Burt's Bees Farmer's Friend Hand Salve, 3 oz:

          I have dry skin on my hands year round and a patch of dry, itchy skin on my leg that has refused to go away for years. I have used everything with variable results but I have never felt confident or cured. Now with this simple, wholesome product I have relieved the symptoms and have confidence that the condition is under control. With regular use, it's a prooductive and pleasant ritual that isn't undone, if you miss a day.

                I clean houses for a living, and don't always wear rubber gloves when I should. Same goes for doing dishes at home. Consequently my hands can get really rough and dry. This stuff has been a life saver for me. It goes on a little greasy initially, but this goes away fairly quickly. It has helped my hands tremendously.

                Comments about Burt's Bees Farmer's Friend Hand Salve, 3 oz:

                I LOVE how natural this product is. Really, it's just a few, great ingredients. The scent is great too, and all natural.

                As much as I hate to say it, I have to be honest, though. This product is pretty greasy, compared to other natural lotions I've used. It doesn't seem to stay in place well, either. Rubs off easily. It also take a while to apply, because you have to rub it a bit in the tin, to make the beeswax kind of melt.

                I do enjoy using the product, though. It's a bit of a treat to use. Best time to apply is bedtime.

                I love this hand salve. I use it on super dry heels and hands in the winter and it is wonderful. Since it does leave my hands a bit greasy (made of natural oils), I do use it right before bed so I don't touch anything with them. I like the strong herbal smell. This is my second time purchasing this product.

                  Great stuff to use at night for dry hands and anywhere else. Figure you have to get at least 6 hours or so of sleep for it to absorb well (same as Burt's Almond Hand Cream, which I also love), and there's a very strong rosemary smell, but I like it. One significant other hated the smell and wouldn't let me use it around him, but another now thinks it's great and uses it himself since I got it for his dry hands. I only took away a star because it contains lavandin oil, which I'm trying to avoid.

                  I use this before I put on hose to cut down on snags and runs; it softens hard dry skin on your feet and smells great.
