One Man'sTrash Is My Beeswax

Burt's BeesI've honestly never been a fan. As much as I love to shop for eco-luxury products like these, something about the entire line hasn't gelled with me. They are all-natural and offer an entire range of beauty products. Just about everyone else in my life is an avid devotee. My sister won't leave home without it. Living in the Pacific Northwest had you subjected to Burt's Bees lip balms and creams at every check out counter from Target and beyond. Now living down under it's another beauty bag staple for both ladies and gents. 
Conversations over the years have gone like this when offered:
 Me: Um, no thank you.... hmm...nooo...
Everyone else in the world: Do it, try it, use mine-which would actually never happen (don't share, people it's gross!!)

Point is this, it never seemed to moisturize me enough. 

Well, if you look here I've added it to my beauty bag. Burt's Bees Beeswax and Banana Hand Cream. Now that's s mouthful. More like a handful. It's a good handful of moisturizing goodness. After all these years a simple banana in the mix and I'm sold. It was fantastic for my inherited dry skin. It really is our family plague and finding a combatant will have you to the moon and back looking for remedies. I've heard stories of older aunties and motor oil being tested at some stage. This was a friend's discard just sitting there waiting for me as my ashy hands suffered. A heaping glob later and problem solved. Also, bee's are great.
