I've tested my share of natural first aid balms, and it's not often (thank goodness) that I really have to put one to work. But when I burned my hand on a 400 degree oven rack a few weeks back, I put CV Skinlabs Restorative Skin Balm to the test.
Actually, that's not the whole story.
I left my burn alone for the first few days, and let nature take its course. The healing process was slow, and not pretty. Finally I pulled out my sample of CV Skinlabs Restorative Skin Balm and started applying it twice a day, figuring that it couldn't hurt. Overnight, I saw a transformation. Within a few days, my skin had healed completely, leaving a faint pink scar (that I'm now treating with pure rosehip oil- a fantastic scar treatment). Without this balm and its potent mix of healing agents like turmeric, reishi mushroom, calendula, arnica, ginger, and sea buckthorn, I might still be waiting for my skin to come back to life! The balm is petrolatum-free and packed with natural moisture from shea butter, jojoba oil, beeswax, and more.
It's really no surprise that this balm is such a miracle healer. The CV Skinlabs line was created by a serious expert on healing skin: Britta Aragon, author of When Cancer Hits and CincoVidas.com. Aragon is herself a cancer survivor who has made it her mission to help others maintain quality of life during and after cancer treatment. But her product line is a lifesaver to anyone— from those with eczema and rashes or post-microdermabrasion skin, to those in need of first aid, like myself. I also tried CV Skinlabs Calming Moisture, one of the richest and most gentle lotions I've ever used. My sensitive skin loves this formula.
