Do you ever get Celine Dion-excited when you find products that are effective and works for you? I do.
My hands are extremely dry. Maybe it’s a sign of old age or motherhood or lack of taking care of my hands. My fingers tend to be cracked and dry in the winter.
Heal and Feed Your Skin with Green Goo
Recently I sliced my finger while cutting an avocado for me and Spawn. Avocado toast is the best! I love living in SoCal – avocados all year round, suckas.
Thankfully it wasn’t a deep cut. It hurt like a MF, though, and I feared having to pack up Spawn and head to the urgent care. I rinsed the blood off as fast as I could and threw on a band-aid. A couple hours later, I took it off and looked at it. Instead of my usual Neosporin, I tore open Green Goo’s First Aid stick and rubbed some of the salve on.
Look how well it helped close up my cut. Yay for Green Goo and white blood cells. Hard to see but it hurt like a mutha for a couple of weeks. You don’t know how often you use that part of your finger until you cut right at the crease.
But wait, there’s more. I took Green Goo’s Dry Skin tin and Skin Repair tin with me to Knott’s Berry Farm. I rubbed some Dry Skin salve on Spawn’s cheeks (windburned!) before I put her sunscreen on. (We use Aquaphor for her cheeks but now that I have an effective natural alternative to petrolatum for her face, why not switch?) I also used it for my dry hands. Once rubbed in, the stuff is absorbed and doesn’t get all greasy. This is important – who wants a greasy steering wheel?
Green Goo was founded by a mom and her two daughters – aka. it’s a badass business – in Colorado. (Made in the USA? Double win!) Mom is a biologist and teacher. One of the daughters is a midwife. The other daughter runs the business operations. Man, it’s like I hit the jackpot with a winning small business whose products heal skin with natural ingredients.
The team sent over their best sellers for me to try out: the First Aid stick, Skin Repair tin and Dry Skin tin. I loooooove the Dry Skin tin. It keeps my janky dry fingers moisturized for hours before I have to reapply.
I thought I would use the Skin Repair more but really, it’s the Dry Skin tin that I’m shoving my fingers into every day. A little goes a long way, so a small tin should last you a while.
I use Skin Repair on my jacked up, crusty elbows and even around my toes. Winter really messes up my skin, especially my extremities. And my face. BOOM. I just FACE’d myself. (See what being a #mombie does to a person?)
The company also offers other natural skin products for other ailments. Just had a baby? There are Mama and Baby products like sitz baths and belly balms. Got pets? There are Animal products! They sell jars and sticks of SPF skin goo. You should look at the photo on that page. Like having sex? (Haha! Trick question.) They also sell lube and other fun stuff for the bedroom. That section is called Southern Butter, which is a pretty awesome name for that line. Come ooooooooon! (No pun intended.)
If you’re looking for portable tins as a stocking stuff or for yourself, I would recommend these tins. They’re small enough to slip in your front jeans pocket or the tiny pocket of a diaper bag. I have my Dry Skin with me all the time. The Skin Repair and First Aid stick goes in my gym bag!
Tell me – Have you thought about switching to more natural balms and salves for your skin?
