To say that I love MOA: The Green Balm would be an understatement, I’ve never really used the phrase before, but this just has to be one of my ‘holy grail’ products.
It doesn’t look like much from the tub, and when you open it it’s a pretty basic balm with the slightest hint of green to it – Well, what is it? you might ask and, no, it isn’t going to fly out of the tub and start cleaning the room (sorry, I know, I’d love that too).
But this product Can do so much. I’ve barely even begun to scratch the surface of what this oily little balm can achieve but I’m willing to give most of them a go at some point. The list of claims is pretty long, and you can see it HERE for rescue and HERE for beauty; but without rewriting out their lists, it ranges from health to beauty, from skin care (see here) to hair care and plenty more in between.
The product is also filled with so much! See HERE for information on ingredients that are included (and lots of things that Aren’t in there too!)
So, why doesn’t everyone already use this stuff? Honestly, I don’t know! They should!
Enough raving, I’ll tell you what it does for me.
Firstly there’s the eczema, I get this weird type of eczema on my fingers which leaves tiny, itchy bumps and I also get really dry patches in the same areas. It’s almost impossible not to scratch and the dry patches crack and get really sore. One application of MOA balm and it starts to improve. Two applications and it’s on it’s way out. Three…. and well you get the picture.
Another thing is my stupidly slow healing time. I believe that this may be fibro related, or it’s just one of my ‘special’ little quirks, either way it drives me nuts. I heal-so-slowly it’s untrue, it takes weeks upon weeks for cuts and scratches to heal and blemishes hang around for so so long. Also, once things do heal, I end up with red scarred patches for so long afterwards. But this little beauty of a product cuts that time in half, maybe even quarter or more, in some instances; my blemishes can be healed up and only left with a bit of dry skin, within a few days rather than a few weeks, and I also tend to scar a lot less if I’ve used this.
The uses above are the main ones for me, but my gosh does the MOA balm make such a difference in these two areas. I do use it for a few other things, too, unexplained dry patches, on my cuticles etc. And it helps quite nicely with these little, random things too.
I think something I’d like to do in the future is just run down their whole list and try everything out, even if just once. Mmm I think that will go on my list of things to do.
So, you can see why I have a tub of this in my travel bag, one on my bed side table and one amongst my beauty bits – I can not be without this stuff.
I was lucky enough to get two, teeny little 3ml tubs of the Green balm from MOA’s facebook a couple of weeks ago when they did a first come first served giveaway. The 3ml one is the tiny one in my pics, the one that goes in my travel makeup bag. And I’ve decided that, as hard as it is to give away a product I love so much, the second 3ml size tub I got will go into my 100 follower giveaway which will be being launched a few weeks, to a month, after my 50 follower giveaway ends (see HERE) – So, one of my lucky readers will be able to try this stuff out. Even if eczema or slow healing don’t plague you then check out the lists that I linked above, I bet you’ll find Something you can do with it (even if you just try it out as a cleanser!) plus they’re always on the look out for other uses, maybe try thinking out side of the box and let them know if you find another use for this little, miracle product.
