Review: Honeydew Balmy Mommy Itch Relief Belly Balm

November 6, 2008

anti itch belly balmThe folks at Honeydew skin care sent me this Balmy Mommy itch relief belly balm for pregnant mommies.

Well, I’m obviously not pregnant, but I’ve nonetheless found myself using this product every single day since I got it.

It’s designed to keep itchy, stretchy areas of the body moisturized (like the pregnant tummy and thighs), so it contains evening primrose oil and cocoa butter. A little lavender so it smells nice and calendula for anti inflammatory properties, and even oats for skin soothing and itch relief. Other ingredients include avocado oil, safflower seed oil, beeswax, rose hips oil, and shea butter.

I like how the balm is in a convenient applicator designed like a deodorant. It’s so easy to whip off the cap and stroke it on wherever you need it.

I have found myself reaching for it in the middle of the night several times lately to rub on my youngest daughter’s itchy legs. She gets dry skin in the winter anyway, but she’s wheat allergic and when she manages to sneak something with wheat when I’m not looking (she’s usually pretty good about this but occasionally she will taste something her siblings have left lying around the house), she breaks out into an itchy red rash. This stuff helped me get her back to sleep which meant more rest for me!

Balmy mommy is also recommended for eczema sufferers. I’ve used it on my dry hands and lips too.

Honeydew has some other original products for moms, like an ointment to help ease C- section scars and one to soothe tired legs. Honeydew products are also free of parabens, petrolatum, synthetic colors, dyes and fragrances. They’re available at Nordstrom or at their website.

    Rice moisturizer is one natural moisturizers it helps protect the skin from being damaged by UVA and UVB which are the cause of melasma, freckle, and skin cancer. Because it has plentiful minerals, unsaturated fatty acid and vitamins especially the natural vitamin E which is in high quantity as Tocols (Tocopherol & Tocotrienol), Gamma-Qryzanol and Ceramide.

Got something to say?
