This stuff is amazing!! My daughter gets really bad eczema patches on her legs and I worry about trying new products. Even the simplest of lotions hurt her but this healing balm is amazing!! It doesn’t hurt her at all and the patches cleared up in just a couple days!!! I’ll be back once this stick is gone 🙂L.
The order arrived today, and I appreciate how well you package your items.
And I looooove the products! I hardly use my other lotions anymore. This is so perfect for me!
Thank you for everything! You can count on me as a repeat customer!!!J.
I’ve been searching for an all-natural moisturizer and was hesitant to try an oil based one since I have combination skin. This moisturizer is wonderful! It does not leave your skin greasy and sinks right in – I use a powder foundation afterwards and I swear my skin glows. I use this morning & night, about 3-4 drops per application. The fragrance is pleasant and subtle. I am a fan of this product and highly recommend it!T.C.
This is so wonderful!! We needed this unscented and were able to have it custom made. It was great! We received it the morning my daughter started her labor; talk about good Timing!! We love this stuff, the texture is absolutely perfect!! I think we have found the PERFECT BUTT BALM!! We will be ordering many tubes over the next few years!! THANK YOU SO SO VERY MUCH FOR GETTING THEM MADE AND TO US SO QUICKLY! VERY IMPRESSED!!!!B.R.
