It has a dense/hard texture that I was not expecting. It also has a funny smell. Despite this, the cream has staying power and certainly does help with dryness.

Soothing
Sampled

I am allergic to a product a nail salon uses, got a pedicure and ever since I have had to deal with itchy spots on my legs. This really helps sooth the itch and has a better texture and smell than calamine lotion.

mine solidified...
Sampled

Not sure what happened, but when I opened this balm it had hardened into a solid. I still tried to use it by transferring a small amount with my fingertips, but I doubt I got the full effect. I will say the smell was pleasant and fairly neutral.

Do Not Like
Sampled

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.

Skin Care Review

I never used to have skin issues before, so I am trying new things. I liked this product for small areas on my body but did not try it on my face.

This stuff WORKS
Sampled

This is a thick cream good for target spots. I used it to help repair a chafing on my ring finger inside knuckle area. Not as instantly absorbable as some other lotions/creams but if you take the time to rub it in and apply frequently it does mend broken skin.

I actually loved this cream. I was surprised at the effectiveness and the scent was pleasantly different. I would buy this.

Effective product

The product works well and I like it. Luckily, eczema does not occur often enough to warrant a purchase at this time.
