Dry skin? Chapped lips? Rough elbows and knees? Let me introduce you to your new BFF. The name is Waxelene*, all-purpose, super balm. It is advertised as an alternative to petroleum jelly, so if you are a big Vaseline user you need to check this out. Instead of mineral oils and paraffin Waxelene contains four simple, natural ingredients: organic soybean oil (non-GMO), beeswax, organic rosemary oil, and vitamin E oil (made from non-GMO soybeans).
It is quite thick and rich, so a small amount goes a long way, and the texture is soft and spreads like butter. It is unscented, but has a subtle honey smell to it that quickly fades after applied. As I apply it, my dry skin immediately feels more hydrated, comfortable, and much softer. I like to use it at night before bed as a repairing treatment for lips and hands, and wherever else my body needs extra moisture. By the time I wake up in the morning, my hands are soft and my lips are plump and smooth.
Waxelene is a true, multi-purpose product. With the jar that I received, I also got a little brochure with a list of 100 ways to use this product. In fact, if I had to pick one must-have product for the colder season, this would be it.
Waxelene comes in a 2 oz. or a 9 oz. glass jar, and it is now also available in a practical .75 oz Flip Top Squeeze Tube. You can find Waxelene here. My recommendation would be to keep the big jar on your nightstand and the clever tiny tube in your purse. No more chapped lips and hands, only skin feeling happily ever after.
