Surprisingly good for my dry skin and itching.

I'm not sure if this will work on really damaged skin, or dermatitis and eczema, but I have been getting a bit of acne lately and after using many products my skin was really dry and irritated. When I got my March box I was going through an allergy reaction to some products so I decided to try this because it says it relieves itching. I was surprised to notice that after just a few minutes my skin was feeling much better and no itching at all. I have been applying it every other night before bed because it's hydrating my skin a lot and I can notice it doesn't look dry at all. The product is very thick and will basically make your skin look white, so I don't recommend using it under makeup.

works fine

A good product. Does what it says it will do. Not sure if I would replace what I use now with this product

Very calming

I use this on my neck when it gets dry and itchy. It is very calming and makes my skin fell protected and nourished. Just a little lasts the whole day.

Effective

I really enjoyed the sample in my box. It made my poor tired runner feet feel smooth and happy. As an avid runner, my feet take a beating. With summer here, I am happy that my feet are soft and my heels are no longer cracked. The calluses have also softened. Sandal time.

Does the job.

This balm eased some of my problem areas but as others have mentioned, does not absorb quickly enough. Having darker skin, the whiteness of the balm is a little off-putting and needs extra attention when applying it. Besides that though, I can apply this in the morning and be comfortable throughout the workday without feeling the need to reapply.

Not my favorite.

Very greasy and thick going on and hard to get out of the tub. It does seem to sink in quickly though. The scent is also very strong and medicinal. It reminds me of medication used to treat dental problems!

Doesn't work for Eczema skin
Sampled

I like the smell of the product, kinda reminds me of oats in oatmeal. I love that it does not contain any parabens, and it works for dry skin if you use it on a constant basis, but unfortunately it does not solve my Eczema problem. I received a sample of the product from my birchbox and have been using it on my Eczema spots for over week and it shows minimal improvement. For the price of the product, you're better off buying Aveeno Eczema Therapy that costs less than half the price and works much more effectively in a shorter period of time.

smells wonderful

This is the best smelling product I've ever used! I got a scratch on my face from a cat. I was very worried it was going to scar. Not only did it not scar, this healed it within 2-3 days.

OK

The texture of this product was ok. I didn't notice that it did anything for my skin concerns though.

I was pleasantly surprised.

I really enjoy this stuff. It is extremely thick, as many of the other reviewers mentioned. It goes on thick and is visible on the surface, leave a white tint before it is fully absorbed. After the first application I wasn't impressed, but the next morning I woke up to repaired skin on some real problem areas - particularly my elbows. I've been using it on and off since after my typical body moisturizing routine. I really like it. I will seriously consider making a purchase after my sample is out!
