Grahams Natural Sooth-It Balm, Review

Do you suffer from dry or irritated skin?

Then todays post is for you! Grahams Natural, who are relatively new to the UK, are Australia’s best-selling natural skincare range of top-to-toe treatments for eczema and other sensitive skin conditions. Their product range includes products to treat mild sensitive skin as well as more severe eczema and psoriasis flare-ups. The products contains innovative natural ingredients and plant lipids, including emu oil, manuka honey and colloidal oatmeal to intensely nourish and help repair the skin’s protective barrier.

I have been using one of their star products, the Sooth-It Balm, over the past one week. The balm is said to be an intensely hydrating and soothing ointment, perfect for cracked and parched skin on the hands and feet.

My skin is usually normal-dry but in winters it borders from dry-very dry. The most affected parts are my legs which become very dry and flaky. Indoor heating aggravates the problem and I have to fight the urge to itch - as itching can give my legs a cracked appearance. Thankfully I do not have any redness or peeling skin issues. To combat this extreme dry skin problem, I make some changes in winters. I avoid long hot baths and showers even though I absolutely love that. I try to keep up my water intake even if I do not feel thirsty and most importantly I moisturise a lot.

Light moisturisers that I use in summers obviously do not help much, so in winters I always switch to intensely hydrating products. And the Grahams Natural Sooth-It Balm definitely falls in the latter category. It is a soothing balm that also has a protective effect and is perfectly suited for cracked and/or dry, rough skin. The balm, as you can see from the pictures, comes in a tube and has a creamy(but not runny) texture. It is softer than other balms I have tried and easy to apply. It melts beautifully when you rub it between the fingers and gets absorbed nicely as well. There is no discernible fragrance except for a very mild natural scent; I think it is the scent of the natural oils present in the balm. Excellent at moisturising the balm also relieves itching and redness as well. Within a few days of regular use, the flakiness and itching on my legs has reduced. I feel the balm would work nicely for those with more severe skin conditions like eczema as well.
