    I love everything about the balm - that it spreads easily, is organic, and feels like a blanket that's protecting the skin from the drying winter. I have never experienced such soft skin before. Really grateful for this!

    I have had amazing results using the Repair lotion for dermatitis on my hand and use the Ultra Rich Balm as a night time treatment on my hands. it is very rich as only a tiny amount needed but if I do have too much on my hand I run my fingers through ends of my hair as great conditioner. It is a multi purpose balm and certainly one of the best ones I have tried over the years. Has a medicinal scent which is not strong. I would say to anyone with skin problems to try both the Repair Lotion and the Balm as an effective treatment.

    My skin is a nightmare. My lips go through phases where they are dry and crusty for no reason.
    I used to use a bees wax and lavender balm a friend makes up but she recently started adding comfry to her blend and now I react to it.
    I've tried other commercially available bees wax balms without success throughout this year and in August discovered the tiny tub of Odylique's Ultra Rich Balm.
    I was very grateful for the ability to order a tiny tub to try the product because as anyone with tricky skin will agree, it gets so expensive trying to find something that works. Well, THIS WORKS!! Its been a life saver so I am returning now to get a larger tub. I agree with one of the other reviews that said it can get a bit greasy if you are over zealous with it, but, you only make that mistake once and then realise that the tiniest amount goes a very long way. THANK YOU ODYLIQUE!!

    This is a good product and very hydrating (I have eczema and it doesn't make my skin flare up) - it can get a bit greasy if you put too much on. However the batch I received in the summer went a bit funny with lots of little lumps in the texture which meant it wasn't as nice to put on - hopefully the new one I've just ordered will be better.

    [Odylique Reply]
    Hi Sophia, thank you for your comment! The lumps are most likely just one of the products crystallising - this happens when the product is kept somewhere too warm then cooled down slowly. It doesn't affect the quality of the balm though and the crystals will 'melt' on application. We recommend keeping all of our products somewhere cool and dark. Glad to hear you like the balm! :)

    I really appreciate this balm. Not too greasy. I have acne and it hasn't cause break outs. Nice for my hair, skin. Just the right amount of conditioning for me. I'm really glad that I waited for delivery. USA customer.
    Worth the wait

    Used once on my hair as I do have very dry coloured (grey) hair - didn't like it at all. I do have very dry sensitive skin on my arms and legs so used it on them which left my skin feeling very soft and smooth.

    [Odylique Reply]

    Hi Tracy! Thanks for your review. A good tip to gauge the amount of Ultra Rich Balm needed ion the hair s to by rub the tiniest pea-sized amount between your palms, scrunch into your (completely dried) hair ends only, then brush or comb through to distribute along the hair shaft. As it is so rich, this is often all that’s needed to improve condition and shine.

    I generally do not suffer from skin problems, but think that this product is excellent for removing make-up and generally moisturizing dry skin. My partner has incredibly sensitive skin, so uses this, including on his face, and it works perfectly for him. I'm delighted, as he's very conservative - no perfume or fuss! I did have a minor irritation on my wrist last winter, which was very sore, so of course used this balm, and it cleared it up in just a few days, with no reappearance. It gave me some inkling of how unpleasant this condition can be for my partner and for all your customers who have gained relief from painful skin problems.

    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

    So good I got a full size, multi tasking, use as a hair conditioner and scalp soother! Used some on the cracked eczema on my hand and its done an amazing job! So good the area has not split open since!
