My skin has finally "matured" at 61, so when I read the Refinery29 reco, I decided to try this balm. In my whole life my skin has never been so happy, smooth, unbroken-out (who still has breakouts at 61?), and supple. I've never been a make up person, but this is just a fantastic elixir! I like the smell, sorta hippie-ish, but I associate it now with skin relief and calmness.

After receiving a chemical peel series my skin was incredibly broken out and irritated. I had picked at the resulting acne and had caused scabbing that would not dry up and heal. My skin is normal to combination but feels dry because I live in the desert, so I have difficulty finding a non-comedogenic moisturizer that can keep my skin feeling adequately moisturized. I should probably mention that I've been an Aesthetician for 9 years and have tried every cruelty free moisturizer you could imagine. When I first applied the Propolis Balm I instantly noticed it was hydrating enough for me, which is rare. Within 48 hours of using it my post acne scabs had healed and my skin was no longer irritated and inflamed. I will continue to use this product as I believe will be great for keeping my occasional hormonal acne under control. I love the ingredients. I can't say enough good things about this hidden miracle.

I used to have a huge issue with dry, flaky red skin around y nose and mouth, which has only gotten worse since the weather has started to cool down. Since I have used this product (1 week), I have noticed that the redness and dry/flaky skin is gone! Miracle in a tube for sure. The scent is an herby beeswax smell, but is very easy to become acclimated to. I would definitely recommend this product.

I have been wanting the Restore Propolis Balm since the Refinery29 feature and I finally caved. The price is very reasonable for the amount you receive. The scent isn't as bad as some are saying–I find it to be a slightly stronger beeswax smell and it doesn't bother me. I've been using it as my nighttime moisturizer and I love it. I wake up and my face feels refreshed and it seems to be fighting off acne. I can't wait to use it now as the weather has started getting colder. It's a very pleasant thing to apply and I enjoy the feeling of it on my skin. I plan on ordering another tube for backup if they do a free shipping promo some point soon!

I bought this based on the Refinery reviews and have returned the product the next day! It left a greasy feel on my face and woke up with 3 new zits!

I am 55, with dry skin AND a lot of blemishes. This gets rid of them without leaving my skin dry and cracked!

I read about this product on refinery29 and decided to buy it after the rave reviews it got. I've had consistent breakouts on the lower half of my face (nose to chin area) for about 2 years now, and have tried many different products and remedies. I have combination skin, so during the day some parts are oily and some parts are normal and every once in a while i'll get dry patches. I bought this and used it as a night cream, since i like using SPF moisturizer in the morning. this product does moisturize, and i liked the texture which felt rich but not greasy or sticky. however, I didn't notice a positive change in terms of breakouts. sadly it did nothing to clear current blemishes and hasn't seemed to prevent new ones.

I'm beyond happy that I found out about this product. After years of constantly searching for something that would help my skin woes , I finally found my holy grail with the propolis balm !!!!! I have been using this product in conjunction with a micellar water and my cetaphil cleanser and I'm starting to love my skin again !!! Since I started using this balm I have had no major breakouts and twice a small pimple would try to emerge , I put the balm on after I cleanse my face at night and I wake up and I am amazed that it's as if it never existed!!! I highly recommend this product !! Please don't ever stop making it... and thank you for making such a fabulous and affordable product!!! You have gained a lifelong customer :)
