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.

SMELLY

If you want to smell like a hospital, go for it. I had to throw it out before I could tell if it works.

Do Not Like

I have extremely dry and sensitive skin. I also love lotions/balms. This product should be right up my alley. Unfortunately, that is not the case. First, I understand that it is a balm but it is far too thick. I can't even describe the look or feel of taking the product out of the tub, its just ridiculous. It gets worse when applied. Once on my skin it takes on a horrible chalky texture. I can't imagine how a product can be moisturizing if it feels like I'm rubbing on the dust from the chalkboard tray. As awful as that is, it doesn't even compare to the smell. The balm smells like a fireplace. I like fireplaces; they are warm and cozy and wonderful. But I don't want to smell like I've rubbed myself in the ashes. No, thank you. I want to like this product, I really do, but I just can't.

Skin Irritation and Rash
Sampled

I'm not sure if it was because my skin is fairly sensitive, or if there was some kind of ingredient that didn't agree with my skin...but I had serious itching and a rash after using this product. This winter has been pretty harsh, so I have been trying a lot of heavy duty lotions and body butters. So I was really excited to finally try Skinfix, and disappointed by the major irritation I had for a couple days. Might not be the same for everyone, but personally I will be very hesitant buying any of their products in the future.

The smell was terrible. But it really hydrated my skin. Change the smell and I would buy it.

Dried out my skin

I was really excited to try this product since I suffer from itchy dry skin. After trying this product my skin still seemed very dry if not more dry. I wasn't pleased with the texture or the feel.

Works, but the smell is not worth it
Sampled

I tend to have dry hands, so I was excited when I first received this product. However, the smell was overpowering and not in a good way. I ended up giving it to a friend who has Eczema and she says it helps. So worth it if you have Eczema but be cautious if you are sensitive to smell.

not for dark skinned ladies

I liked exerything about this balm including the generous sample size, unfortunately I think the oatmeal in the product made it impossible to blend completely into my skin so you could see all of the little spots like my elbows that I tried it. No matter how much I tried to rub it in.

Not for me
Sampled

Nothing against birchbox, I mean, I love skin products, but this was just not for me. My skin is oily, not dry. But, it had nice packaging and was a good size, so I gave to a friend of mine. She says it's great though, so I don't really have a particular problem with it, just no need for it. At all.

Didn't work

This balm was not soft like a moisturizer, and when it eventually got on my dry patches, it bared touched them. I'll stick with Vaseline.
