Cream, Dr. Shannon's Skin Balm and Everything Balm: Which One Do I Choose?

Cream, Dr. Shannon's Skin Balm and Everything Balm: Which One Do I Choose?

It's no secret - we looove our waterless creams and balms. In fact, we have quite a lineup of them. We literally have a balm for every body part. Why so many options? Because each product was formulated for a specific purpose! Each ingredient was carefully selected and the packaging and method of application well thought out. These power-packed products each attend to a variety of conditions, challenges and body parts!

For example, our Everything Balm comes in a super handy stick that can be applied with our mess-free applicator. It is a favorite among the kiddos who, of course, want to do it themselves.

Our shea butter Cream is a waterless lotion that conditions, soothes and plumps skin on delicate areas like eyes and any other part of your body that needs some TLC. It is especially effective on dry, chapped skin.

Need a heavy-duty balm that works overtime to soothe, hydrate and renew compromised skin? Dr. Shannon's Skin Balm is made with lot's of organic beeswax, which helps to add moisture to skin and creates a protective barrier.  

We wanted to make it easier for you to differentiate between these products, so we've created a handy chart that breaks it all down. So, if you are asking which product is best for eczema, if you can use Cream on your face or if the products have a scent, take a look below! As always, please reach out to us with any additional questions.

Cream: "This oil is perfect for my combination skin, and has improved my skin texture, and acne! It also keeps my eczema flare-ups away! It feels good knowing I'm massaging natural ingredients into my skin, and makes it feel so plump! I'm on my third jar already and I don't plan on replacing this." - Lily X. 

Dr. Shannon's Organic Skin Balm: "This is what I bought once I discovered the brand. My son has pretty severe eczema (he’s 5) we have been to numerous Dr’s I’ve the years and tried everything. I mean everything. Even RX creams that are $700+ Nothing seemed to really work (especially in the spring when he suffers the most due to allergies) I have been using this for 3 days and am already seeing and feeling a huge difference in his skin. This morning he said he didn’t itch everywhere and felt better. He usually scratches all night in his sleep and hasn’t don’t that since Thursday! I can’t say enough about this!" - Victoria R.

Everything Balm: "If there is any one product, of any brand, of any kind that I can't live without it's the Everything Balm. I use this constantly and it's so moisturizing. I make sure to never run out of this because it is my savior--lips, burns, dry hands, bumps on the arms/eczema...it soothes all. Highly recommended. I hope they continue to make this forever!" - Heidi
