Finally...A Product That Works!
I am thrilled to finally find a face moisturizer that is soothing and healing! I have sensitive, extremely dry skin and this tallow balm has helped calm down inflammation and restore moisture. Admittedly, prior to using it I had some reservations about putting olive oil on my face, given I am prone to breakouts. I have found, however, that it actually reduces breakouts and speeds healing time. As an added bonus, it makes a great lip balm. Thank you, Vintage Tradition for making such a wonderful product!

If You Have Acne
Please do yourself a favor and try tallow balm. Nothing but tallow balm has been able to help my skin. I've tried just about every treatment out there—chemical peels, salicylic acid products, photodynamic therapy, and list goes on. My skin isn't perfect, but I've seen about a 70% improvement in my acne. I used to look diseased and now I pass as normal. I'll take my wins where I can get them! I applied it every day initially (for the first 4 - 5 days) and now I apply it every other day. I do live in a dry climate though, so if you live in a humid clilmate, you may need to take that into consideration. That said, when in doubt, apply more tallow balm—sometimes I apply it several days in a row. After using tallow balm on my face for a few weeks, my oil production normalized. I'm not going to lie, I was STRESSED OUT! Applying oil to my face every day was SO counter-intuitive!!! In fact, I'd been using tallow balm in lieu of lotion for about a year before I worked up the courage to try it on my face.

This is the best thing ive ever found for my skin!!
I've struggled with dry skin and acne at same time forever. I've tried everything and never could get rid of one without irritating the other. I decided to try this after a friend recommended it and I AM SO GLAD I DID!!! No weird chemicals to irritate no drying out just awesome moisturizing and my face is now clear and soft!!! I put 2 lemon essential oil drops in it run between my palms and put on face in the am and at night. I am so happy to have clear skin and no dry peeling parts either! Thank you!!!!!!

I've been a Vintage Traditions fan for years & absolutely LOVE there Almost Unscented beef tallow. A little goes a very long way - my last small jar has lasted me 8+ months with daily use. My skin is dry but prone to random, deep pimples so I was afraid this tallow would be an issue during breakouts but I was wrong. Keeping the skin nourished with this perfect moisturizer has left my skin baby soft, blemish free & looking years younger! Also the only thing to clear up the intensely embarrassing dry patch on my bum (prescription creams included)! My 4 sisters are also all diehard fans & I'm so excited to try their deodorant in this crazy Texas heat! Cannot say enough about Vintage Traditions but know it's a MUST HAVE staple for your skin! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!

I just received my Tallow Balm from Vintage Tradition, and it exceeded my expectations! It is wonderful and soothing, absorbs quickly so you aren't left feeling greasy, and my skin loves it. I never knew my skin could feel this soft and hydrated. It's even making my breakouts vanish, and I was afraid they would look worse or even multiply from using the balm, but they do not. I am even using the balm all over my two-year-old, and she loves it too! Thanks for making this wonderful balm. I am a customer for life now.

I love, love, love your product!!! I use it as a my face lotion, lip conditioner, eye cream, body lotion, and so on. This is the one product I seriously can no longer live without. So thank you! I'm 30 and have struggled with acne most of my life. Now, for the first time in my life, I feel like my skin is beautiful. It still has a lot of healing to do, but I can actually leave the house without makeup, and that's a huge stretch for me. I have had my fair share of products, and nothing was ever satisfying enough to stick with or hang on to. I was constantly in the mind-frame of "on to the next".

...I'm exceedingly pleased with the results the balm has made on these two conditions. However, I never anticipated the effect this product would have on my face. I had never intended to use it on my face, but for some reason I did it. I have very sensitive skin and use only the most pure, natural lotions on my face, but I haven't used anything except the tallow since the first night I put it on my skin. After a couple days of the tallow, my skin was positively glowing. After a week, I almost felt like I could go without makeup (something that I haven't done since before high school). I've had maybe only one minor break-out since I started using it — unheard-of for me. I've had moderate acne since my teenage years (and I'm in my thirties). Suffice it to say that I will continue to use Tallow Balm on my face for the rest of my life. There's no way I'm ever going back to even the best lotions you can find....
