Birchbox Breakdown

When you experience an eczema or dermatitis flare-up or suffer from very dry skin, relief can’t come quickly enough. Well cue the “Hallelujah” chorus, because this medicinal balm works instantly to quash itching, redness, and irritation so you can start feeling better right away. Used long-term, it repairs the skin’s protective barrier and heals dryness, all with natural ingredients. Even if your skin is on the normal side of dry, it’s a handy tool to have in your arsenal.

How it Works

This all-natural moisturizer is loaded with botanical hydrators—aloe, jojoba oil, and beeswax—and none of the chemicals that can irritate sensitive skin (think: parabens, phthalates, fragrances, and steroids). Zinc oxide, sweet almond oil, and colloidal oatmeal unite to soothe inflammation and relieve itching. Over the long-term, this nourishing formula, made with zero percent water, strengthens skin’s lipid barrier—the wall that keeps moisture in and environmental aggressors and allergens out.

How to Use

Apply generously to affected areas like cracked heels, elbows, and other trouble spots.

Active Ingredient: Colloidal oatmeal 2%. Inactive Ingredients: allantoin, aloe barbadensis leaf juice, beeswax, butyrospermum parkii (shea butter), glycine soja (soybean) oil, liquidambar orientalis (styrax), myroxylon balsumum (balsam tolu), paraffin wax, petrolatum, prunus amygdalus, dulcis (sweet almond) oil, simmondisia chinensis ( jojoba) seed oil, styrax benzoin resin extract (benzoin), tocopherol, zinc oxide. Packaging is BPA free and recyclable.

Amazing for pregnancy stretch marks!

Amazing for pregnancy stretch marks! my skin is dry and stretched out due to my new baby coming and this stopped the itch and kept me moisturized. It also works well for shaved legs.

Love.
Sampled

I have eczema around my scalp line. Not pretty at all. Also, I have blotchy redness around my nose and a bit on my cheeks, which worsen after showering.
This stuff actually works! I put some around my hairline after a breakout and bam - gone the next day. It works well for skin redness, but I wouldn't use it as a moisturizer because it doesn't blend well and it's quite heavy.
Now that I've taken the time to review the product and my sample is gone, I am surprised how the price of the full-size is so reasonable.
Definitely will buy some soon.

good staying power
Sampled

I feel like I am constantly washing my hands and it's hard to find lotion with staying power.... this one had it. Even after two or three washes, I felt the protection of the lotion! It doesn't really have a scent, which is also nice. Tried it on my elbows and feet too - it did a good job. I appreciate that it's all natural, that's really important to me. The trial size lasted a pretty long time, I will buy the full-size.
thanks.

Yuck!
Sampled

It smells medical, not very "oatmeal-y." It doesn't rub in like a normal lotion or balm, it just sits in a greasy white film on top of your skin. Even after several minutes of rubbing my hands together they had a ton of residue. The balm did not make my dry skin feel quenched. Any cheap lotion like aveeno would be better.

Fixes anything

I love this. I have used it ranking from baby diaper rash to facial dermatitis. Wonderful all around and has a great texture along with a very clean smell.

itch relief with no grease
Sampled

This stuff is pretty great. My sample came in a nice little jar, and you just dip in and scoop what you need. It's not a lotion, so it goes on light and dry. It definitely soothed my dry hands.

Meh...just ok

This product came when I was having an eczema break out and it did not really help with it at all. The smell is not the best and it leaves the skin really greasy.

Works Well, Doesn't Smell Great

This product worked well as a nighttime lotion for me. I did not care for the smell though, it was almost medical.

silky!
Sampled

I love this product! I have very dry skin on my hands, and this product is silky and luxurious. It does take a couple of minutes to completely absorb, so be careful to put it on when you have a little time, or it can transfer to other surfaces.
