The All Natural Cure For Your Kids Eczema, Dry & Itchy Skin - Monkey Balm - Review

First things first Thank You to Monkey Balm for sending me this lovely product to try out and review for my amazing readers !
Monkey Balm is a no-sting, non-sticky formula with a no-mess quick roll on application.
This stick balm helps to heal and protect your little ones delicate skin with its Organic Sea Buckthorn Oils.
What the heck is Sea Buckthorn you ask? 
Sea Buckthorn is chocked full of  Omega 3, 6, 9 and even the super rare Omega 7 (palmitoleic acid)! 'Sea buckthorn contains more than 190 biologically active compounds that can nourish the body's cells to protect the skin from free radicals and actually heal damage from environmental stressors and numerous skin conditions.'*

Most importantly (I think) Monkey Balm is All Natural, Cruelty Free, Sulfate Free, Paraben Free & Preservative Free!
Monkey Balm is perfect for soothing itchy, irritated and painful skin from ailments like sunburn, minor scrapes, burns, and rashes - immediately! It also improves eczema and extreme dry-skin in just 3 days!! Monkey Balm is especially great for those who live in a dry climate like I do.
My little Monkey's, ages 4 and 2 are constantly getting chapped, scaly cheeks, dry lips and random patches of super dryness on their arms and legs. It is partially because of our beyond arid climate (Arizona) but also because I am constantly washing their messy faces and them playing/rolling around on the floor.
 So I started using this balm on the dry patches that pop up on their legs and cheeks mostly at night after their baths and right before bed. I do so they wouldn't mess with it as much and the balm would have time to soak in and work. I use it during the day too for touch-ups but find that for my kids they wipe it off less and it has more of chance at staying on if I apply it at night. 
I have noticed that the rough patches on my 4 yr olds legs have softened up quite a bit. And both of the kids chapped lips and cheeks have gotten soooo much better too !! I was using Aveeno on both of them but hadn't seen much of a change until I used this balm. 
I am very impressed !
A little bit goes a long way too! We have had this balm for just about a month now and still have a good chunk of product left and I use it on both them everyday.
The formula is not sticky at all and has a light citrus - orangey sort of fragrance to it. It is a bit slick and sort of slippery until it soaks in - which takes just a few minutes.
You can see above the slight shine the balm has when first applied. 

I think the idea of it being a roll on type application is great ! My daughter giggles every time I apply it on her - not exactly sure why, but she does :-) 

Overall I definitely recommend this roll on balm ! 
With so many uses - improve symptoms of eczema, extreme dryness, even burns and wounds every parent needs this in the medicine cabinet AND diaper bag.
