People Say This $13 Soothing Balm Is "Pure Gold" for Eczema Flare-Ups and Irritated Skin
There are plenty of pesky skin conditions that are difficult to control, and for many, eczema sits at the top of the list. As Manjula S. Jegasothy MD, CEO and Founder of Miami Skin Institute, previously told InStyle, this inflammation "manifests in a myriad of forms, some of which are more common in childhood (such as big patches on the inside of the elbow and behind the knees) or in early adulthood (hand eczema)." Unfortunately, eczema is a genetic condition, meaning it cannot be permanently cured. With that being said, there are helpful solutions that can help prevent flare-ups.
The Balmond's Skin Salvation is one such example; the natural intensive moisturizing balm was formulated specifically for dermatitis, eczema, and psoriasis, and it eases dry, itchy patches across all areas of the face and body. Nourishing ingredients like hemp seed oil, calendula flower extract, olive fruit oil, and chamomile extract soothe even the most sensitive skin types, restoring areas of distress to a calmer state. What's more, the salve is dermatologist-tested and free from fragrance, parabens, mineral oils, synthetics, and paraffins.

Impressively, Balmond's line of effective skincare solutions (including Skin Salvation) come highly endorsed by Bridgerton actress Adjoa Andoh, who plays Lady Danbury in the hit show. "You know this hair is wigged up and all glued and all of that, and when I take it off, this is what fixes me. So thank you thank you thank you," she shared on the brand's website.
Andoh isn't the only one to recognize the healing powers of the soothing balm; it has racked up over 1,100 five-star ratings from reviewers who call it a "life saver" for eczema and extremely red, irritated skin. One person referred to the product as "pure gold" for their dry eyelids, claiming it keeps them from feeling itchy "the whole day with no irritation." Another fan seconded this notion, writing "after trying multiple creams for the eczema on my eyelids, I tried this balm and within a couple of days my eczema was gone!"
Another reviewer called the formula the "best product EVER" after suffering from a bad flare-up. "A friend gave me a sample of this to use and it has incredibly cleared the eczema," they wrote. "I have had a few tingles where it feels as though it's coming back, but I just apply this a few times a day and it goes away."
If nothing else has worked to calm your inflamed skin, consider giving the Balmond's Skin Salvation a try, starting at $13 per jar.
