I’m excited today to be reviewing a company that isn’t new, but is new to me. Badger Balm!
Badger Balm has been around since the mid 1990’s and have been using Certified Organic ingredients for many years. They are USDA Organic Certified and don’t use any pesticides, synthetic chemicals, growth hormones or GMO’s. Over 90% of their products are 99-100% USDA Certified Organic. Oh and of course, they’re cruelty-free as well. 🙂
Now let’s discuss their “mascot” of sorts. I don’t know a lot about badgers but have heard they can be mean. Is it wrong that now I want one as a pet? Ha, I would never have a wild animal as a pet, just a fantasy. But I would rather have one like this fellow…
All sweet and innocent looking…
Than this demon! Yikes.
So back to the actual topic now. Badger Balm Soothing Shea Butter Cuticle Care comes in a nice sized tin.
It’s a balm product infused with Shea Butter (one of my favorite ingredients) and scented with Geranium, Mandarin, Lemongrass and Ginger. Mostly what I smell is lemon and ginger, and it’s really nice. Not medicinal and nowhere near as strong (and Band aid-ish) as LUSH Lemony Flutter.
What I really like about it is it’s super easy to take with you. No worries about spilling or oozing with a nice balm. You do have to be careful not to leave it in a hot car or in the sun though.
Another great thing is since it’s a balm as opposed to an oil or cream, it rubs in rather quickly and isn’t greasy feeling. I can actually use this during the day and not feel like my hands have been slathered with lard.
You only need a little bit, just swipe a finger across it and rub into cuticles. Good stuff, and now my go-to cuticle balm for day!
I also like that they put an expiration date on it so you know how long you’ve had it and when to toss it. I wish more products did this.
You might love this if you are looking for an inexpensive, moisturizing, non-greasy cuticle treatment. Also if you cannot stand the scent of LUSH Lemony Flutter or don’t like oils, this would be another alternative.
