Bag Balm was first created over 115 years ago by a pharmacist in Wells River in Vermont's Northeast Kingdom to help protect cow's udders from chafing and cracking. Even though it was first made for use on livestock, people started using it to moisturize cuts, callouses, and any other dry skin ailments.
I received their new On-the-Go tube to try, which contains .25 ounces of product. That may not seem like a lot, but I think it's the perfect size for exactly what it's named for: on-the-go! It has an angled tip applicator, making it perfect for use on the lips or cuticles. Bag Balm is also available in one-, four-, and eight-ounce tins. If you're really looking to invest in some, you can get a four and a half pound pail!
Like I said before, the tops of my hands get very dry and rough in the winter, to the point of being painful sometimes. I applied this directly to the rough patches and it provided instant relief and long-lasting moisture. It's made with petrolatum and lanolin (as you can see from the photo above), so it's highly concentrated and a little goes a long way. If you've never smelled lanolin before, it has a kind of strange scent at first, but I don't mind it because the product works so well otherwise!
After I applied this to my hands I didn't need to re-moisturize for quite some time (at least an hour or more). I like that it not only soothes my already dry skin, but it helps prevent it from drying out again for a long time.
