This stuff is THE BALM! Shout out to Burt's Bees! I'd seen the products at the healthy store, among all the other similiar items, and it seemed to have quite a following, but I never had a real reason to try any of them out. Until now. Until it was concluded that my face issues - well, the ones having to do with irritated skin anyway - were the result of bicycling in abrasive weather conditions (thank you Terri).
The label touts, "No more weather-weary hair and skin during your outdoor adventures!..."
Plus, there was that cute canister.
I just wanted something I could easily keep in my backpack, so I got me some Burt's Bees Miracle Salve, and it's awesome! The English Patient ointment made a marked improvement, but this stuff is even a step above. No more itchy or puffy, plus I look like a 20-year-old! Okay, two out of three isn't bad...
Speaking of bicycling, sort of, Tessa came along yesterday as my middle school partner and I did a lesson with an unruly group of 8th graders. We talked circumferences, gear ratios, speed control, etc. while Tessa strutted her stuff. I think she rather enjoyed the limelight.
Afterwards, our instructor (who observes these rookie attempts) told us he really liked our lesson design and that we should publish it for the archives. He told me, "You obviously have a passion for this stuff and that's engaging for the students".
Geez, it's math, engineering, and bicycling. I told him if Johnny Depp were somehow thrown in there, we'd be off the chain.
