I am from New England and the cold weather had always dried my skin so bad that my hand and heels would crack and bleed. I had used so many lotions with little or no relief. I started using the Renew and for the first time in my life I wear sandels. My skin is so soft and smooth. I have a brother who works outside for a living and he too would not do without the Renew. It has really made a hugh difference in our lives. Thanks Melaleuca!! I have been using the Renew for about a year now.
