Product Ratings & Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I got a sample from my dermatologist during an eczema flair. It worked almost instantly!! Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful On Mature Skin I use this as a nighttime face balm and just love it. It’s softening, locks in my other skincare and feels wonderful on my almost 50 year old skin.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Started the repair process overnight My eczema was flaring up badly over the summer. f I put regular lotion on my skin, it would just dry up and the itch was unbearable. I was about to go to the doctor. I put this on before going to bed, and it calmed down my skin so it wouldn't be so itchy. It's thick enough that it stayed on all night. That following morning, I could see that my patches were beginning to heal. The balm snce then has kept my skin moist, itch-free, or at the very least keep my flare-ups from being so bad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The relief I was looking for! I have dealt with eczema on my neck on and off for a very long time. This winter I had one of the worst flare ups and it spread to my face. After a couple days of using this product the redness went down a lot and kept the itch under control. As you may know, eczema can really affect our self esteem. I've been doing much better since using this. There is no magic cure for eczema, but it keeps mine under control!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Me curó la eccema Este producto fue lo único que me quitó la eccema y no me ha vuelto a brotar. Se lo he remendado a todos mis amigos que tienen eccema. Me gustaría que saquen shampoo para eccema, porque también sale en el pelo y es horrible.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelievably baby soft skin! I NEVER leave reviews but this was one product I felt I needed to take the time to review. My life has changed over night with this product. I bought this balm yesterday because I had skin that was so uncomfortably itchy for years. The itchiness I was experiencing, I believe stems from taking ADHD medication (adderall and vyvanse). I would itch until my skin started spotting red then welting or leaving ugly patchiness of red/ purple. However, yesterday I picked up this eczema therapy balm and overnight my skin has healed completely, I have no welts, no more itchiness or pain and my skin is as soft as a baby!!! I would highly highly highly recommend this product to anyone who deals with any form of skin itchiness! I feel like I brand new person and it has improved my self confidence too. 10/10 recommend!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My skin had never felt so good in the winter. I got this a few weeks ago and it had helped with my dry and itchy eczema so much. It is a little thicker than lotion with gives it kind of a weird texture but it works really well. The thicker texture makes it stay on much better. I would definitely recommend this to you if you have eczema. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product works for me!! I have struggled with eczema for the past 5 years. I tested and tried several different products, but they haven’t worked for me. I tried this product one day, and I instantly felt relief! It calms, and soothes my skin. It calms the itchiness, and smooths the eczema spots! I’ve been using this product since this past Summer and I love it! I’m so glad I found the product that’s helping to improve my severe dry, itchy skin!
