Moisturizing but not greasy

I keep this little jar close, it smells beautiful and moisturizers really well.

Literally the Best!

This keeps my hands so soft and hydrating as a health care worker that washes their hands frequently. I've recently starting bringing this to work for both my coworkers and my patients. I work primarily with the homeless population in Calgary and I've been using this to treat the severe cracks in their hands and get their hands "winter ready". I've had multiple patients come back a few days later overjoyed that their hands look like "normal people" hands again and showing me how well the moisture barrier has been restored and that the cracks are healing quickly. Thank you thank you thank you for this product! I only wish it came in bulk!!

From sand paper hands to soft as a babies butt hands!

My hands take a beating. I wash my hands a lot! Plus I am a potter and gardener and chef. My hands are like sand paper. They get so dry that most days, they crack and bleed. Especially in the winter months. I tried a sample today and immediately purchased some. My hands went from dry, cracked and bleeding sandpaper, to beautiful, soft and hydrated, but not overly greasy as the salve soaked into my skin! As you can imagine, I have a bazillion hand creams, but the MIMTS restorative hand salve is by far the best thing I have ever used on my poor hands. They are so happy now!!! Thank you! Customer for life now!!!!

I love this - hydrating and smells wonderful

I live in the Rocky Mountains of Alberta and it is a super dry place in the winter. I use this hand balm all winter long. I am not a person that uses creams or lotions, but in the winter it is a must. You only use a small amount and it lasts a long time. It's not a product you need to keep applying multiple times a day to get relief from dry skin. So for me, this container will last a long time!
I also don't like heavily scented things, and this is the perfect amount of scent that smells so lovely. I look forward to using this product because it works great and when I use it I know I am supporting a wonderful company that makes their products with love.

Super hydrating!

I work as a nurse in Manitoba and my hands get really dry between work and harsh weather, this lotion instantly soothes my dry hands. You don’t need a huge amount either, it spreads so nicely with just a small amount so will last awhile. Such a nice and light scent as well.
