Suu-Balm - Itch Relief Solution

Saturday, June 17, 2017


I think I have said enough about my troubles with eczema throughout my entire life.. I developed dermatitis when I was very young, and for the past few decades, I have been battling with dry, scaly skin.. and not to mention, how deadly itchy it is.

Eczema sufferers will definitely relate to the itching that comes whenever the skin is sticky, or the weather is hot, or that the environment is too dry... and when that happens, we always scratch until our skin breaks and bleeds.

I was very eager to try out Suu-Balm when I received an email from them because it is touted as a rapid itch relieving moisturiser for dry and eczema-prone skin.

Rapid? Check. ✔
Itch relieving? Check. ✔
Moisturiser? Yep. ✔
Specially for dry and eczema-prone skin? You got it. ✔✔✔✔✔

This was like *the* cream formulated for Dylan and I!

TEXTURE



Texture wise, the Suu-Balm is slightly watery and not very thick. The pros is that it is easily absorbed and based on a consumer survey done earlier in the year, 90% of the users find relief from itching within 5 minutes of applying the Suu-Balm!

Of course, because of its viscosity, I would highly recommend users to tilt the bottle upwards while squeezing out the balm so that you don't accidentally squeeze too much of it.

HOW DOES SUU-BALM WORK?

Suu-Balm utilises Mint as the main ingredient to relief itch. The cooling effect of mint not only provides relief in this humid weather, it leaves a gentle, tingling sensation that overcomes the itch in a gentle way.

It is steroid-free, which is very important to eczema sufferers because steroid thins our already thin skin, making it more susceptible to allergic reactions than ever.

It is also paraben-free and the after-feel is smooth and non-sticky.

You would be happy to know that it works across all types of itchy skin, such as insect bites as well! Most importantly, Suu-Balm is formulated at the National Skin Centre and recommended by dermatologists and family doctors across Singapore.

DOES IT WORK ON CHILDREN?

This product is not suitable for children below 3 years old. When I tried it on Dylan, who is turning 5, he found it to be too "hot" for him (in his words). Children may tend to be a bit more sensitive to the tingling mint sensation, so you can try a little bit on their legs or arms, but do avoid sensitive areas like their necks or faces.

AVAILABLE AT:

Suu-Balm is available in two sizes at all leading pharmacies, hospitals, polyclinics and selected private clinics.
