MyNewSkin

It's no secret that I am a great lover of Do Everything balms. I like having a balm on hand that I can use on me, the kids and on hubby whenever the need arises. My latest Do Everything balm is MyNewSkin which is very interesting as it's made out of herbs that have been freshly picked. 

I've been using this on myself and bub with great results. For me I've been using it as a night treatment and for bub as an eczema treatment.

As a night treatment it's great. I only use the smallest amount (less than a pea size) to cover my face, neck and chest. I wake up in the morning with soft, hydrated skin. The area it's been most effective is my chest. From sleeping on my side I have chinkles (chest wrinkles) and these are significantly better since I started using MyNewSkin. 

For bub's eczema, I wanted to use something that is light and chemical free. I've tried various oils that weren't helping and the Dr gave me steroid cream which I really didn't want to use. The ointment the chemist suggested was really thick, sticky and stained his clothes so I was delighted to find that MyNewSkin didn't sting him and cleared his eczema up within a week.
For those of you who like me, are wondering what Sheep Sorrel is, it's a herb with leaves that are very rich in vitamin C.
I love a product that has a 100% refund guarantee, it gives me confidence that I'm buying a great product.
One thing to note is that this smells distinctly herbal. It smells like something out of the garden. The scent is not unpleasant, but it does take some getting used to purely because I am accustomed to using products that are either fragrance free or artificially fragranced.

Another thing worth noting is that I do no recommend this for use on the lips as it's quite greasy and does not taste pleasant. 
There are two variants available, Olive and Lavender or Olive and Lemon Myrtle.
MyNewSkin is Australian owned and made in Australia from fresh, Australian products.


There is a breakdown of all ingredients used on this page. I found it to be very interesting reading.
