Monkey Balm Skincare Review/Giveaway!!

 
Living in Maine, the frequent changes to weather effect everything from your closet to your budget. Your skin, like everything else, takes a beating all year long, and changes with the seasons. Personally, the dry winter months cause my skin to dry out and crack, while the summer leaves me with sunburned skin and rough, caloused feet. I'm always on the lookout for new products to try that are inexpensive and will heal and protect my skin throughout the year. Monkey Balm is a wonderful, natural product that is easy to apply and actually works - on kids and adults!!
When I discovered Monkey Balm, I was intrigued as to whether or not this product actually does what it claims to do: soothe all kinds of skin ailments, from eczema to dry heels! This product was especially supposed to be wonderful for children's skin, so I was excited to have Angie try it out as well. Here's what the company, Balmers, LLC, has to say about this awesome product:
 
"I am the mother of 3 wonderful boys, each with terribly dry-skin and eczema. They would scratch that itchy dry skin to the point it would bleed. Living the Mountain West didn’t help either, with the super dry climate and extreme temperature swings.

After years of trying every over-the-counter and prescription cream under the sun to help my poor little Monkeys, I found out about Sea Buckthorn Oil."
    
When my Monkey Balm arrived, I couldn't wait to try it out!! The actual product is shaped like a giant glue stick or chapstick, and is so easy to use. You just take the cap off and apply to your skin, all over and as much or as little as you would like. When the balm runs down you simply turn the bottom, much like you would to raise a chapstick or gluestick! So easy, and great for kids who want to do things themselves. Angie is 6, and Monkeybalm was so easy for her to use herself on her arms and the back of her legs, both of which get really dry!
 
I love the feeling of Monkey Balm on my skin. I've been using it on my hands, elbows, and heels, and I've definitely seen improvements in the health of my skin in just a couple weeks! Monkey Balm restores damaged skin and makes your hands feel so soft! It is also perfect for correctly embaressing dry heels, which have often kept me from wearing flip flops in the past. I would definitely reccommend Monkey Balm for every family. From kids to adults, Monkey Balm is the perfect skin care product to soothe dry or itchy skin. As we head into winter, I know we will be relying on Monkey Balm more and more to correct our weather-damaged skin.
 

Monkey Balm is also perfect for babies, and its cute monkey packaging makes it an adorable baby shower favor! According to Balmers LLC, Monkey Balm is useful for diaper rashes, and is safe to use with clothe diapers. Every mommy wants to keep her baby's skin soft and healthy, and Monkey Balm is the perfect product for doing just that.
Sea Buckthorn - Monkey Balm's special ingredient!
I also love that Monkey Balm is completely organic. It is made with Sea Buckthorn Oil, which is the magic ingredient that separates Monkey Balm from other, generic balms on the market. It can be used to aid in such a wide variety of skin conditions, from dryness to itching, and can even be used as a daily moisturizer! It's compact size is perfect for travel, or it would fit nicely in a bathroom cabinet or right on your dresser!
 
Why buy Monkey Balm? Well, as the seasons change, you really need to be protecting your skin. Skincare is often something people let slide, but it really needs to be a priority! Monkey Balm is so soothing and so simple to use, it is perfect to just slip on right before bed! After using Monkey Balm for just a few weeks, you will definitely begin to notice a difference in how smooth your skin is! If you are looking for a cute organic skincare product to add to a giftbasket or to give on its own, Monkey Balm is the perfect little gift that anyone, and their skin, will appreciate.
BUY IT: Monkey Balm can currently be purchased only online, although it is coming to stores soon! It is sold in a single pack for $15.95 or in a double. Although I had some trouble accessing the Balmers, LLC website, you can easily purchase Monkey Balm through Abe's Market here: http://www.abesmarket.com/store/balmersnaturals/products/
