Before I dive into my review I want to give you a little background to explain why I was so excited to test and review this product.
My youngest has eczema. Her first rash appeared when she was an infant. At that time she had been prescribed a prescription cream and put on extreme dietary restrictions. When I say extreme, I mean she had to be dairy and gluten-free.
After a couple of years, her rash was completely gone. Our doctor then had us slowly introduce dairy and wheat back into her diet. Luckily, she suffered no reaction, so on we went with life…..
As my daughter neared her 16th birthday, her eczema returned. We made dietary changes and even discovered a new trigger, high fructose syrup! These changes, however, weren’t enough.
A few years prior we, my husband, daughter, and I decided to take a more natural approach to our healthcare needs. In the past 2 years, we have tried many natural lotions and balms to relieve her pain, redness, and itchiness. We have failed to find anything that really worked, that is until now…..
As you can see in the comparison picture, there has been a major improvement in the past 18 days. Now mind you, she is a teenager, meaning that she has forgotten to apply it a day here and a day there. But, to see that kind of improvement without being on top of applying the balm every day, I am impressed.
I also want to note that she hasn’t been watching what she has been eating throughout this trial period either. I am sure once she does, we will see even more improvement.
The best part is that her rashes no longer hurt, the skin isn’t broken, nor do they burn and itch. She is going to continue using Soothing Skin Balm by Earthley because it is the only thing she has tried that has worked without a prescription.
Take a look at the picture above.
Tears rolled down my cheek when my daughter showed me her wrist this morning. Never, never in since eczema returned to terrorize my daughter over 2 years ago, have we ever tried a product that produced these results. She’s come close with others, but she also made major dietary changes with them. She fully admits that she has eaten extremely poorly this past month, so we can rule out dietary changes in what has caused this improvement.
The improvements are amazing, but so is how little this is costing us. Very little of the balm is needed. I purchased the larger jar and we have barely made a dent in it. I will update when we need to purchase another jar, but don’t wait to try it because it is going to be a long time!
It may also help relieve symptoms of psoriasis, which I have and have just begun using on my rashes. Seriously, I just started today, so I will update you on that another time.
Anyways, what I love most about Earthley’s products is that they are completely natural and always free of fragrances, parabens, sulfates, and polysorbate 80.
The ingredients in their Soothing Skin Balm are:
Apricot oil: combats sensitive, dry, red, and irritated skin
Organic calendula flowers: soothes dry, itchy skin and is safe for children.
Organic glycerin: slows down cell regeneration which reduces the redness and rawness that is typical of skin affected by eczema
Organic beeswax: holds it all together and locks in moisture
Organic mango butter: is thick, rich, and super moisturizing
If you are looking for a natural and organic balm to soothe eczema, psoriasis, or dry skin, you need to try this product. I hesitated on whether I should have purchased the smaller jar, you know to make sure it was going to help, but I have zero regrets for purchasing the larger 4oz jar.
