I recently caught a cold and went through a couple of boxes of tissues. Needless to say, my nose was pretty sore. I rubbed the Almost Unscented Tallow Balm around my nose several times a day and when I went to bed, and it seemed to heal it almost immediately! It still felt sore, but the chafing and cracking stopped immediately. Made a total believer out of me!

Using products that are made from all natural products without any chemicals is extremely important to me. I have eczema on my hands and have been frustrated in trying to find a product that doesn’t make my hands sting and also softens rough skin. After using the Almost Unscented Tallow Balm, I’ve not experienced any stinging pain, and it has greatly improves the sandpaper feel of my skin caused by eczema. Thank you so much for creating this product!

I found this company back in 2013 and used this tallow balm throughout that entire winter. It kept my skin so supple and hydrated, every morning I would wake up and look like I got 12 hours of deep sleep. I love the smell of this balm so much too, it is addicting! A couple of weeks ago I noticed the dry and cold starting to take it's toll on me and I went to look for my tallow balm and could not find it. I must have used it all up. So I went directly to the site to order some more and I was so relieved to have been able to ind Vintage Traditions again and that the exact formula was still the same. I am just so in love with this stuff!

I use this balm as my only moisturizer for my late twenties, female combo- skin face. It feel like is it luxuriously whipped and glides on effortlessly after warming in my hands for a few seconds. It has a very light and soft scent. I can use it around the delicate skin of my eyes and I feel as if I may combat some serious aging as well as skin outbreaks due to using the tallow balm daily on my facial skin! I can use it on my two year old knowing it is so down-to-nature and safe. It works wonders on dry patches, eczema outbreaks, burns, and honestly the list goes on and on. I would not be caught staying overnight anywhere without this balm! It is my go-to moisturizer and then some! I’ve recommended it to friends and family, and am placing an order as I speak.

I bought my first tallow to help relieve the eczema on my eyelids. It worked beautifully, and the eczema has never returned! Since then, I have been using Almost Unscented on my face every night and never want to use anything else. Not only does it make my skin soft, but I am thrilled that all the ingredients are natural, healthy and beneficial for my skin. I have found my forever skin cream. Thank you Vintage Traditions!

I recently started using this product because my family had suggested it and I am so happy that I did! Not only are the ingredients incredible, but this product is seriously some of the only stuff that I have found that effectively takes care of my dry skin. I can never go back!

I bought this at the Weston A Price Wise Traditions conference fall 2017 and fell in love. I recently ordered my second one and love how it makes my skin feel. It feels luxurious and it makes me feel good knowing it's nourishing my skin.

I have to give the creator of this product a huge shout out because he got it right. So all the ingredients sounded great until I realized there was olive oil in the product and as I am sure you are aware that most olive oils are cut with canola oil...Yikes...trust me..not good! So I checked out the olive oil that he uses and sure enough he uses an amazing olive oil company that absolutely does not cut their oil with ANYTHING!! In today's day and age of short cuts..this product ROCKS!!! I am a truly grateful customer!
P.S. I love the deodorant

I live in rural Montana and have struggled with very dry skin for my entire life. Our climate has very little humidity and this tallow balm is a game changer. I use this as my facial lotion morning and night and a hand cream. Initially the tallow scent took a bit of getting used to, but it disappears just as quickly as my skin absorbs the cream. I just hit my thirties, but my the tone and texture of my skin is better than it was in my twenties. It gives me that healthy glow and I feel beautiful and confident with or without makeup.

After reading a review below, I want to add a couple tidbits:
- a-little-goes-a-long-way is relevant to skin that's NOT heavily dried out; When I apply it just after towel drying, I need MUCH less than if I wait til my skin feels dry.
- to me, facial skin is the most fragile, and vulnerable to clogging. Once I passed the point of breakouts, I've been able to use products I never would have dreamed of even trying years ago.
