      I was reclining out in the sun the other day and did not wear sunscreen as it did was partially cloudy, plus I was not out that long so I thought I would be okay. Well, later that evening, after I had been in the house for a few hours, my chest and stomach area were turning angry red (although my legs and arms were okay). I was not itching or burning yet, but I knew I needed to do something. I rummaged through all my toiletries and the best thing I

      could come up with was a little round tin with 0.30 ounces of Burt’s Bees hand salve, which was part of a sampler I had received as a gift a while back.

      I applied the salve liberally to my reddened skin and went to bed waiting for the restless night of the tight, burning sensation that accompanies sunburn, but it never came and I slept that night. After my morning shower I applied some more, and sat down to read the list of ingredients. It is sweet almond oil, olive oil, beeswax, vitamin E,


      • comfrey root extract, rosemary oil & leaf extract, lavandin oil & flower extract, and eucalyptus oil

        I kept applying this salve to my reddened skin, and within a few days it simply turned tan, without peeling. I researched some of the ingredients online and it is no wonder this salve worked for sun burn - they have penetrating, softening, natural moisture loss prevention, soothing, skin healing, skin cell protecting, and analgesic properties respectively.

        I certainly do not recommend going out in the sun without proper protection, but this salve saved me from major discomfort. Ironically,

        I would not use this product as a hand salve like it is supposed to be used. It is far too greasy and just sits on top of the skin - even on my burnt one it would not absorb but sit there for hours. Also, the tin is hard to use for ladies who have anything longer than short clipped fingernails - I had to scoop out and apply the contents with my knuckles. I do love the fact that all the ingredients are natural and that the product is not tested on animals.
