        i have suffered with what i know is perleche since i was 10 yo. for 18 years my idiot doctors gave me hydrocortisone. this was the worst thing they could have done. giving me a steroid cream to mask my ailment. after years of using hydrocortisone, i began to break out in what looked like acne (however it was not) all around my chin (corners of mouth). i FINALLY took matters into my own hands and discovered the steroid cream was the cause of this "acne" and FINALLY figured out what the heck i really had...PERLECHE. it is more common than you think. it also sux! this is the only product i have found that works. i had to switch my toothpaste to a flouride free, but i cannot tell you how happy this made me. i actually cried. years of suffering from something none of my idiot doctors could tell me what it was for nothing. i try to avoid doctors as much as possible, but this was something i couldn't figure out until i finally was old enough to take matters into my own hands. PLEASE DO NOT EVER STOP MAKING THIS PRODUCT, I WILL LITERALLY CRY! THANK YOU DESERT ESSENCE! XOXO

                    I bought this based on the review that said it helped remove the sting of bug bites. It does that, and more. I had a bug bite on my foot near a funky looking nail and was surprised to see that the nail is almost normal after only a few days. I'm using it on all my nails now, and they're looking 100% better. Oh, and the bug bites healed up very quickly. I think I'll find all sorts of uses for it.

                      I used this product on mosquito bites, for pain relief, and for itchy scalp relief, and it has served it's purpose. Three of my children are allergic to mosquitoes, and when they were freshly bitten, I applied a small amount to the bite, and it relieved the itching and the swelling. It was like they were never bitten. I also used it on my painful wrist, and it provided great relief. Finally, on of my sons tend to have frequent itchy scalp, and since I have been using this product on his scalp, the itching has been minimized.

                        This ointment is phenominal for dry skin. I rub it all over my face before I go to bed and when I wake up in the morning my face looks like it's glowing. I use it on my hand also but only if I sit and do nothing for a least 1/2 hour b/c it is greasy but it absorbs quickly with no greasy residue! It's great on lips too but Dessert Essence has a lip balm. Also great on feet. There are no "aren't so great" things I know of.

                                  Was looking for a great natural skin moisturizer, for my hands. I had read other reviews about this and decided to try it. I figured what could it hurt ? I am so glad that I did try it ! It's been a few months and now I'm on my second or third jar. I used it to moisturize my hands, arms, legs, feet, and lips. Yes, you can use it as a chapstick ! I have not tried it on my face because I think it may be to oily for my face. It soaks in very quickly, and I feel that it does a good job of keeping my skin soft, and my lips soft and protected. Skin irritations go away pretty much instantly. Small cuts, and bruises go away within two or three days. It takes the sting out of insect bites. Pimples, it does not cure quickly for me. I wish it did, however, it does work well on making pimples go away faster and so that they are not so inflammed and red. I got bit by a tick (first time ever) and rubbed some of this ointment on it immediately. It did not itch as long as I put this cream on and I've been told that tick bites itch like crazy, and the actual tick bite/bump went away in about 2 days. I used it on my dog between her toes to relieve a skin irritation, and I think she really liked it. The redness went away in ONE day. I thought this was amazing because my dog has skin issues. Also, she did not like the tase or smell so she did not lick it off. I actually like the smell, lavender is an ingredient. It is not strong at all. Now I feel like this is a must have in my house !!

                                      For years, I struggled with two underarm issues - I would become immune to deodorants after two weeks (THAT got expensive!) and the skin there was always irritated (I think it was due to some "permanent" laser-like hair removal, sarcastic remarks saved for another review!). Well, I started using the Thai Mineral Rock Deodorant and that fixed the "deodorant dilemma", but I still had pain from irritation. I started using this creme after my showers and within a few days, it cleared up completely! That was probably a year ago and now, I use it every time I shower and other than needing a wax-job every once in a while, my underarms are fresh and pretty (as much as possible, anyway!) I also use it on my face when I think I might get a pimple or have gotten a pimple (ick!), and on my beau's face and neck to help keep blemishes away. And, I use it on cuts, abrasions, and other random 'injuries'. Great to keep feet soft and fresh, too! I've read that people use it on their animals, as well! Highly recommended! I keep two jars in my house at all times!

                                          Why did you choose this?
                                          Vitamin Shoppe Store
                                          I have purchased this in the past and have loved it. It helps with many things, mosquito bites, eczema, sun burns, and on my toenails for fungus.

                                          I love the feel and smell of this balm.
                                          It makes my skin feel refreshed and soft.

                                          I love this, I use it for almost everything.
                                          Pimples, ingrown hair, cuts, I even use it in my nose to help with my sinus'
                                          I just use a q-tip to swab it in. It can also help with your ear canal.
                                          The better question is, what doesn't it help??

                                          First time trying it.

                                          can it be used on face and eyes?
                                          A Vitamin Shoppe customer on Oct 10, 2013
                                          Best Answer: I use it on my face all the time, sparingly but it's never been a problem. Great on blemishes. However, don't put it too close to the eyes as it can irritate.

                                          What percentage of tea tree oil is in this ointment?
                                          Alicia A on Jan 26, 2015
                                          Best Answer: I believe you would get that information from the
                                          manufacturer. Tea tree oil is the third ingredient on the label.
                                          It is a good question that I did not think of.
                                          Hope you will get an answer and you will share it.
