A little while ago I was contacted by Catherine Mathius from the brand Natural U to see if, as an eczema sufferer, I would be interested in trying her skin balm to see if it would help relieve the dryness and itching that i get on my face, hands and wrists. Catherine explained to me that she had been a sufferer for a long time of dryness and itching on her hands and couldn't find anything on the market to help with her extreme issues so, she went about creating her own relief balm.
The All Purpose Balm to myself and sister, who also suffers badly, is heaven in a jar! I have the main jar at home and have decanted some into a smaller jar which I keep in my handbag, that way I always have it on me. The minute itching starts I apply a small amount and it relieves it pretty much right away, I have also used it on the cracked skin on my feet, my lips and around my nose where i get very dry.
What the company say about this balm:
Our 100% Natural and Organic All Purpose Balm is an outstanding Natural Moisturiser which soothes and softens dry skin on the hands, lips, face and feet! Suitable for people with sensitive skin. This amazing moisturiser can also be used on babies from birth as a baby bottom balm.
I am in love with this little pot of natural yummyness made from all natural ingredieants which follow: butyrospermum parkii(shea butter), Helianthus annus(sunflower)seed oil, cera alba(beeswax), olea europea(olive oil), calendula officinalis(calendula oil), anthemis nobilis(chamomile),lavandula angustifolia(Lavender), leptospermum scoparium (manuka).
The brand has also been certified by the Soil Association as being 100% natural and organic which is my eyes is a great certificate to hold, the company is also Animal Testing Friendly.
The All Purpose Balm comes in 3 sizes 5g Trial - £2.99, 30g Jar - £9.99 or a 50g Jar - £15.99 I assure you if you grab the trial size you will be wanting more of this stuff and if you love your Calmex this is a fabulous alternative and 100% better in my opinion!
I will be doing a further post later in the week about the Natural-U Daily Body Rub so don't miss out on that post.
If you have tried the product let me know your thoughts in the comments.
