16 Reviews For Ultra Rich Balm

    This was a good moisturiser and has an ok smell, but is very greasy, and actually i found that my really bad eczema skin would need lots and lots of application all the time. I thought the repair lotion was better and more soothing for my very bad eczema. However, i have also been putting it on the ends of my hair and it seems very hydrating!

    I had a lot of expectations after reading all enthusiastic comments about this product but to be fair I am a bit disappointed. Ultra Rich Balm is very greasy, it melts on your skin but does not absorb easily and most of it ends on your clothes...however I love the smell and the fact all ingredients are pure and natural

    [Odylique Reply]

    A little goes a long way as it is very concentrated, so it could be that you are being too generous. Apply just enough for your skin to absorb fully and reapply if necessary. Little and often is the key for very dry or distressed skin to support the natural barrier function of repair and moisture balance.

    About ten days ago, after a few weeks of application of Repair Lotion and Ultra Rich Balm, my eczema cleared up!
    Believe me, I am extremely happy!!!!! I continue to apply both products at night to keep the area moist.

    Thank you once again for the advice.

    Getting such advice, and being able to speak with a knowledgeable individual makes me very pleased that I have chosen Odylique for my personal care products supplier.

    My hair was feeling a bit dry and flyaway so I combed some Ultra Rich Balm through it and left it overnight. I washed it as normal next morning with my gentle herbal shampoo and my hair felt absolutely fabulous. My work colleagues all commented and I have recommended Odylique to them all.

    After using the Repair Lotion I take a small amount of this wonderfully smelling ( so good you could eat it ) Ultra Rich Balm and melt it in the palms of my hands then apply it all over my body gently massaging it in well, a little goes a long way but for me a large tub is essential as I also use it on my dry scalp conditioning the hair as well.
    It has been a joy to find a company such as Odylique where the owner Margaret has put so much love into her research in helping others care for their skin organically..Thank you x

    Ultra rich is exactly how your skin feels when this pomade of botanical emollients is absorbed by the dermis. The large size is great value, you can feel the love that this stuff is made from! .. Only wish it were absorbed more fully (or visibly) into the skin, a rich shine on my skin even after I massage, wait, and rub some more into the skin, ... no rushing on this richness! ;)

    I was skeptical of this products suitability for my skin as while I have eczema, that causes dry patches that often crack and get infected, I experience seborrheic eczema which makes my skin sensitive to excessive oils or emollients. This creates problems with my skin that I believe this product may have solved, even a thin layer when my skin is particularly dry or using as a cleanser has improved my skins condition and my comfort. This is especially true for my hands and cuticles as eczema and a sensitivity to most hand soaps means my hands are always dry and flaky. This product moisturises and absorbs better than any other cream I've tried, quick enough that using touch screens afterwards aren't difficult.

    As I got older and my skin got drier I started suffering from eczema on my arms, legs, back and tummy. I follow the nutrition advice on Essential Care's website and have been using the Ultra-Rich Balm followed by the Repair Lotion every day after my shower. My skin is looking a lot better an is much less itchy than it was. I wouldn't be without these two products.

    I recently started having this itchy, inflamed/irritated dry flaky area on my eyelid. I occasionally get some type of rashes or sudden onset of itchiness even if I am literally only just sitting down! (no clue of the source). I use this balm to pacify this angry patch on my skin which really works. I am happy and grateful to have this little skin helper. Thanks Odylique.

    I have very dry frizzy/curly hair and use this on my scalp and hair before I shampoo and it does make a difference - my hair is left more elastic and defined afterwards and I find less shed and broken hairs. I also add some to the bath sometimes and it makes my skin really soft and smooth.

    Dry skin - here's the rescue!
    I've used this all over my body where I have try patches and I absolutely love it! It works fast, you feel the results, it's lightweight and fast absorbing. I will try it on my entire face soon enough, because I feel it needs an extra push moisture-wise :)
    It's a great product!

    I am very pleased with treatment for a "strange" dermatitis that started in April. I looked as though I had hauled a sledge in the Arctic! Since using your products can say it is most successful, and I shall keep in contact with you. Most of the horrors of the spell of Dermatitis have gone.

    I recommend your products to my friends who can see how effective they are. The eczema on my hands used to be so bad that my fingers would swell to nearly twice their size, I could hardly move them as it was so painful.

    Now thanks to you, I've got healthy skin, the natural way!

    The ultra rich is fantastic, I suffer from severe eczema and it is providing me relief already. The repair lotion is a life-saver. My skin was an absolute mess and I was getting depressed until I started using it. It’s clearing up now
