None of your Beeswax ... Ugg, did this get "tested" on humans?

My wife had to order a small part for a breast pump, which only cost $3. The web site had a minimum order of $10, so she found a Burt's Bees Almond Milk Beeswax Hand Creme. This creme sounded really compelling: "Help for hard-working hands" and " Sweet almond oil, aloe and vitamin E help keep them soft and smooth". But did they really try this stuff? Ugggg.

Imagine rubbing your hands with sticky glue that smells like cherry-almond cardboard box. Once you have this on your hands everything you touch wants to stick to you. Going to sleep with this "creme" (yes, finger quoting when I say this) on your hands makes your bed sheets become marionettes as you roll or turn; they stick to you all night long. And did I mention the smell? If there ever was an Energizer Bunny logo for smell this product would have it. Yes, it lingers on and on and on and on and on and on.

Sure, this product would protect your skin ... if you had severely pain inducing cracks. This product might be useful in a survival kit to help repair leaks in tents or be the sticky part of fly paper.

The label says "Not tested on animals" ... Did any humans test this in real life? The best thing about this product? Its packaging! This is where the marketing makes the product look great, unfortunately.

Bottom line: if you like sticky hands and have really terrible skin cracks then get this product. Otherwise, use something like Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream.
