WEIGHT: 17 grams


PROS:
* made of natural ingredients
* can be used on both kids and adults
* has a relaxing smell
* tin can is convenient to carry
* multi-purpose product
* balm like texture, you only need a small amount.
* greenish color but goes clear when applied

CONS:
*
packaging is not hygenic


USES:
* I've noticed dry patches & slight swelling on my upper lip the following day after eating a spicy pancit canton... maybe I'm allergic to spicy foods?! So I applied this ointment on my lips for almost a week and I noticed the swelling lessened and my lip condition got better.
* my 2-year old daughter is super sensitive to mosquito bites. Everytime she's bitten, it swells up and I'm guessing it must be very itchy because my daughter scratches it until it bleeds. I applied this ointment right after she was bitten and I noticed she wasn't scratching it anymore and the swelling minimized after 2 days.
* I tried applying this on my cystic pimples and I was amazed coz my pimples dried up after 4-5 days and it didn't darken unlike other pimple treatments I've tried.
* My friend who recommended this product told me this can also be used on the undereye area. I tried it and it feels so relaxing, but I'm sticking to my Celeteque Advanced Anti-wrinkle moisturiser as my eye cream hehe =)
* You can also use this product on minor cuts, bumps, scrapes, burns, and diaper rash.

ADDICTION FACTOR:
Will definitely repurchase! Thanks Raine for recommending this miracle product!

RATING : 4/5

I saw this before while I was at Beauty Bar. but I bought the Replenishing lipbalm with pomegranate.

But wow! this truly is a miracle product. my 3yr old son also scratches his mosquito bites. this might really help. I'll definitely go check it out. Thanks for sharing this.
