Selexir Peace Balm Review
Having suffered eczema from childhood, I can fully understand how frustrating it is to have dry and irritated skin. Fortunately my eczema is much more at bay these days and I only really have flare ups every now and then, which is what I experienced after coming back from my recent holiday. Despite having a fantastic time, I don’t think the sun and the heat helped matters much, so it was lucky I remembered the Selexir Peace Balm.
I was sent the Selexir Peace Balm* quite a while ago, but my skin hadn’t really got to a point where it was itching excessively or was particularly uncomfortable, so I haven’t used it until now!
First up, my thoughts about the packaging! I love the simplistic design on the tube and the white background with blue and black detailing. It catches your eye but isn’t distracting.
The Selexir Peace Balm aims to relieve:
- Extreme Dryness
- Mild to moderate Eczema
- Reactivity to cold weather/dry air
The Peace Balm is a pale olive salve with a rich, medium thickness consistency and a herby like smell, which will be from the all natural ingredients (including Blackcurrant Seed Oil and Black Cumin Seed Oil). At first I thought I smelled like a garden, but the scent doesn’t linger for long and after a few uses I soon got used to it.
I apply the balm to the inflamed area which helped to sooth it and relieve redness, and after a while I almost forgot that I had it was irritating me in the first place! Despite this though I reapplied a few more times before I was satisfied with the results.
The Selexir Peace Balm is:
• Dermatologically tested
• Packed with powerful natural ingredients
• Free from parabens, paraffin, silicones and petroleum
• Safe for adults and children
I’ve tried a lot of creams before which were prescribed by the doctor and these included a wide range of strong, pharmaceutical ingredients which meant I could not apply too often despite the area being very itchy and sore. It’s a relief that the Selexir Peace Balm gives the option of reapplying as and when you need to because there are no harmful ingredients.
The Selexir Peace Balm 75ml tube is £99.60 including VAT and comes with free shipping, but is currently only available on the Selexir website. The price is a huge drawback I know, however Elena Herdieckerhoff, the founder of Selexir who developed an extremely dry skin condition herself has put a lot of thought into creating this product for adults and children who suffer from skin conditions. It’s free from all the nasties too, so it is an investment worth considering!
