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.

Great for those with extremely dry skin
Sampled

I suffer from terrible dry skin, and I am constantly moisturizing and trying new moisturizers. Upon application the itchiness stopped and the relief lasted. It also has a pleasant scent. This is a fantastic product.

SO tried this for his eczema and found it ineffective at even reducing his need to scratch and gave him no relief. Used it for a full week with no results. We're always on the look out for anything that will offer results over the counter so I was really excited to see this in the box. I like that this was even offered because a lot of people suffer from eczema and good products are few and far between. I hope to see some more products that will help conditions such as this. Thanks for including it.

I use this on my heels aka my rocks ( they are horribly dry and nasty ) BUT I started putting this on every night before I went to bed and it worked miracles! As soon as the sample is gone I plan on buying the full size!

Dryness is gone... in a few days
Sampled

I don't have eczema, but I do get really dry skin on my eyelids sometimes. It's really annoying, and kind of uncomfortable. This balm helps fight that! It doesn't work right away; it takes about 2-3 days, but it does work! Now, I use it every time I start noticing dry skin creeping back up, and it definitely works wonders as a preventative balm!

Works well

This lotion works really well. However, I really don't like the smell of the lotion. I added a little vanilla oil and it fixed the problem.

Smooth clear skin

I've had eczema since I was a baby. This is the first product that I have ever used that actually works. Hands down the best. Far more effective than all my prescription creams combined. I love it. Will continue to buy the full size. Can't wait to try more of their products!

My dermatitis went away!
Sampled

I cannot believe my eyes. I had dermatitis on the top of my hands, and nothing was working, so I gave this cream a shot. In a few days it was gone and never came back!
I am so happy with this cream. It is highly recommended.
