While I am on a roll with animal products, I picked up a nicely packaged artisanal-looking pot of expensive hand cream at a health food store. It’s $13 for a 3-4 oz jar.
I found the packaging to be irresistibly cute with the thick gift-like cardboard box, vintage font, and a bee stamp. The ingredients promised all natural beeswax and Royal Jelly (hello Burts Bees competitor) so I HAD to. My hands are so dry from constant washing and hand-sanitizer to keep nasty NYC subway germs at bay. It’s a vicious circle of dryness and washing and more dryness.
