I was on another ski trip last week; the snow wasn't as nice as the trip before but Mr. Karen and I still had plenty of fun. He and friend had driven our truck out to Idaho for the December trip; this trip he and I drove it back, which means I spent most of the last three days on the interstate highways. (It's going to take me a bit to catch up with answering comments as a result, since I didn't even boot up my laptop the whole time we were on the road.) In a truck stop in Wisconsin, I found some trucker's hand balm that I just couldn't resist. The little cartoon driver looks entirely too excited about the stuff.
The ingredients are listed as beeswax, olive oil, almond oil, comfrey, calendula, essentials oils, and tocopherol (vitamin E). That sounded pretty good. I opened the tin to find a waxy cake in a plastic liner. It looked similar to Burt's Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream, which wasn't surprising since the ingredients are similar.
Unlike the Burt's, this stuff pops right out of the tin in one piece so you can rub it right on your hands (or elbows or knees or whatever body part); it even tells you what to do right on the cake of wax.
I've only used this a few times so I've no idea how well it works, but can say it smells nice, rather like spiced cider but not too strong. It's not as melty as a Lush massage bar, so it drags a bit on my skin when I try to use it as a substitute for hand lotion. It applies nicely as a cuticle cream, though. The website listed on the tin appears to have been taken over by one of those scammy link aggregators, so I hope I don't end up liking this too much, since I can't just drive to Wisconsin whenever I run out of it.
