Hey there! so a few weeks ago i was lucky enough to be sent a tube of suu balm to try. Suu balm is a moisturiser developed by Dr Tey Hong Liang, who runs the itch clinic at the national skin centre in singapore (i know). He made the suu balm after he found that the creams currently on the market none of them soothed an itch effectively.
Suu balm is a moisturising cream designed with menthol which helps cool and ease the itching feeling, meaning people would want to apply the ceramide rich cream more meaning the ceramides could help repair the skins barrier quicker.
Has soon as i heard about suu balm i wanted to give it a go, its designed for people with all kinds of skin issues that causes itching from eczema, psoriasis, sensitive skin, dry skin you name it! ive suffered with dry itchy skin on my body for as long as i can remember, its something that both me and my brother suffer with (thanks dad). A lot of creams tend to upset my skin over actually soothe it and a lot of them i end up washing off.
I wondered how thick this would be considering its called a balm but in fact its no different really to any other cream when you first squeeze some out. It goes on really nicely its not overly heavy or greasy which is a god send because if you have had creams for eczema from the doctors you will know that really itchy uncomfortable feeling can be made so much worse by the thick heavy cream they give! but this wasnt heavy at all.
The menthol starts off very slowly and builds up to become more cooling over time which is nice, i will say this is something that shouldnt go near your face or neck, one its just not meant for that and two the smell of menthol to close to your nose isnt fun for anyone! I first tried it on one of the last hotter days we had of summer and the cooling feeling is really nice, and it does as promised soothe an itch and make you less likely to scratch your skin into shreds!
I suffer with heat rash and just dry skin on my collarbone area and this helped calm that down really quickly, which was lovely because that can be a troublesome area for me a lot.
I was sent this product to review, this does not effect my opinion.
