Skinfix Body Repair Balm and Rapid Repair Balm on Belle Belle Beauty

Previously only distributed in Canada, Skinfix is finally available in the US! Yay! This little brand is quite the lifesaver and has come in particularly handy for me the last couple of weeks. Developed based on a family recipe passed down from British Pharmacopoeia, these medicinal balms are proven to work without all the irritating ingredients that can so often be found to treat eczema, dryness, dermatitis, chaffing, razor burn and sunburn.

These balms are made from secret blends of vitamins, minerals, botanical oils and plant extracts. Both balms are dermatologist tested, steroid-free, fragrance-free, hydrocortisone-free and with BPA-free packaging.

Body Repair Balm landed on my desk right as I got my first eczema diagnosis. This tiny (and annoying) patch appeared below my eye last month. My doctor advised me to pick up some hydrocortisone. But I always try to steer clear of unnecessary steroids. I remembered this all-natural balm and started slathering away. Just as the doc promised with the hydrocortisone, that patch was healed in under a week. Now I know that hydrocortisone can harm skin’s natural moisture barrier, so I’ll be turning to Skinfix Body Repair Balm for any dryness or dermatitis from now on. The formula contains colloidal oatmeal, healing botanicals and sweet almond oil. While the texture is very thick, it does absorb quickly into skin leaving behind only a slight stickiness.

Rapid Repair Balm is an amped up version that is specifically targeted for the most injured skin. It tackles chaffing, minor burns, sunburns, razor burn or chronic rashes. Like the Body Repair Balm, this formula is hydrocortisone-free but offers a sort of steroid-free all-natural hydrocortisone. A medicine cabinet staple, it helps with ailments for the entire family. This extremely thick balm doesn’t absorb but sits on top of skin with a little greasiness. But that’s its role as a super healing balm. While each balm is slightly different, I honestly will have these stocked in the future. Their natural properties and ability to treat a wide range of ailments make them invaluable.

Available at Skinfix.com and C.O. Bigelow.

Dear Skinfix,

I have dermitites under both eyes, but more so under the left eye – for over a year.. A dermatologist told me to put hydrocortisone but the WARNING said not to use neaer, or around the eyes, so I didnt.. My Family Doctor recommended SKINFIX but when I got home and read the WARNING not to put near or around the eyes, I was afraid to use it.. I’ve had this horrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrible dry, scaly, itchiness under my eyes for ever so long that I just dont know what to do… I’m walking around without any eyemakeup and probably scaring half of Waterloo, where I live. Can you PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE help me or give me some advice.. Is it ok to use SKINFIX UNDER my eyes? ‘
Thank you so, so much.. really appreciate any advice you can give me.
sincerely,
shirley dorton

Hi! I am so sorry to hear about your issues, Shirley. I have used Skinfix on my face but not close to my eyes and if their warning indicates not to, then I have to think it isn’t advisable. I would try another doctor – sounds like you aren’t getting a solution that will work for you. Keep me posted!
