I'll start with saying that I don't usually write reviews but I rely on them when shopping for a new product. Yet, this balm has impressed me so much that here I am, writing this. I was skeptical and tried healing my gut while using Cerve's line to help with the acne rosacea that came on after I was pregnant a few years ago. Nothing seemed to touch it. So, I figured I had nothing to lose and bought multiple samples. I'm three days into using it and I think the photos can speak for themselves. Texture is down significantly! Looking forward to seeing what regular use will bring. The smell in this mix in particular is a little funky (and makes my dog come sit next to me like I have a treat haha) but it's not horrible. Overall super glad I took a chance on this!

Threw out my entire skin care collection
My bathroom counter was littered with half-used bottles of this crème and that potion. They are no longer! Thanks to Vintage Tradition, I've reclaimed my counter. One product outworks any and all other products I've used on my face. As a 25-year-old in the TikTok era, you can imagine I had quite the collection of products peddled by influencers. I am so thankful to have found a product (1) that does not contain chemicals proven to mess with human hormones / cause cancer / affect fertility. (2) IT FREAKING WORKS, on everything for every possible application from a makeup primer to an overnight face mask. I even use it to take makeup off! (3) I cannot tell you the relief I feel knowing I have found a product I can purchase for my young sisters - stop them from using harmful products and get them set up with their Vintage Tradition products that will maintain their skin and their health throughout our lives. I am a for-life customer. And I'm converting everyone around me too!

I have been a happy user of Vintage Tradition products for a few years. I recently developed strange, scaly patches on my face and upper lip. It seemed like it might be psoriasis. I am experienced with essential oils and herbal healing, but nothing in my kit seemed to help. In desperation, I made an appointment with the dermatologist, but it was 3 weeks away. Meanwhile, I decided to apply Epic Glow. A miracle! All patches completely gone in 2 days, dermatologist appointment cancelled. Now using Epic Glow as might night treatment and my skin has never looked better! Thank you Vintage Tradition !

Quite amazing really!
I've been using [Epic Glow Tallow Balm] for about a month now, and let me tell you this is the best product I've ever used, nothing comes even close! I've been taking daily 1 tsp of fermented cod liver oil and have seen the amazing health benefits from that, so I wanted to try this particular Beef Tallow balm (which also contains fermented cod liver oil) to see what it does to my skin. Similarly, as expected, this product works extremely well. It seems to return your skin to its natural healthy state because the beef tallow is a similar structure to what human skin is made of. Being an acne sufferer, this amazingly stops acne production almost overnight, and any very small blemishes that do happen to appear (and I do mean very small), literally disappear in a few short days. Definitely 5 stars from me!
I am in my second week of using Epic Glow and I am so pleased with how it has helped my appearance. Whether it's my health, age (late 40s), the dry climate or all three, my face has been looking very old and worn in the last 12-18 months. I found Vintage Traditions after doing some research on using tallow on the skin and thought I would try some for myself after buying two as a gift for other people. The first week I used it, my skin just sucks it up. "A little dab will do ya" did not apply, as I found myself lathering it on again and again, and spreading to my neck, as well. After 7 days, my skin was retaining the moisture day to day, so I was able to use what is closer to the recommended application. My acne scaring, crow's feet, and laugh lines are definitely less noticeable, but I am most happy with just the "overall" look of my face. I feel like I actually look my age - not ten years older. The fresh, citrusy smell is perfect. Not too strong, not too faint. (My dog must still smell the tallow though, because she follows me around for about 30 minutes until the smell dissipates. Ha!) Great product!

Just stocked up again. I love using Epic Glow AND the quality of care given by the people providing it. I enjoyed using Almost Unscented for years and finally took the plunge on Epic Glow when a reviewer said it DIDN'T smell fishy. It doesn't! Thanks a million for your honest products.

Acne and scars
I can't say enough about this product [Epic Glow]! My face looks better then ever! My acne is gone and my scars are starting to fade. I use this product on my 1 year old when she has drool rash and dry skin and it helps her so much. It even helped when my kids had hand foot and mouth, the bumps were gone in 2 days!

I found this product by someone I follow on Instagram. So thankful to come across it. I've changed my supplements and was aware I could have breakouts as my body was detoxing. I was nervous about putting epic glow on my face (very sensitive) so I first started with unscented. It went okay and then I tried epic glow. I had few breakouts but they healed up quick and my skin is looking great and absolutely clear. I definitely like the epic glow over the unscented. I just felt like I seen better results and it smelled better ;-). My skin started to change in just a few days. Now buying the largest size to use for my entire body. I'd recommend it to anyone.

I started using Epic Glow about two weeks ago and have already seen a major improvement to my skin. It leaves my face so soft and looks amazing. My "age spots" on my face and hands have disappeared!! I just received my second order of a few of the other scents and can't wait to try them.
—Rebecca Strickland in Product Reviews
This is seriously some of the best balm I have ever used. My hands have always been dry and rough and now they are so soft! I literally use this balm everywhere! I use this every night as a face cream and my complexion has never looked better!

I bought this sample [of Epic Glow] to try based off a recommendation from a friend for my issues with acne and rosacea after having my last baby a year ago. I was beyond upset because the dermatologist put me on many medications all filled with chemicals that I know are horrible. I've been on this for 4 days and my skin looks amazing! The redness has gone down and my acne is slowly clearing up. My skin hasn't looked this good since before I had babies. I'm so happy that I just bought the Epic Glow in a larger size! [From subsequent email:] I love this stuff and it has really helped my skin so much I can't believe it. In just a month I'm off all dermatologist products and only on this for my rosacea and acne.

You should try a jar.
I just purchased Epic Glow after reading a LOT about tallow products as offered by many. Many were so helpful, providing bits of information that led to the conclusion that I had to try this stuff. Vintage Tradition was my final choice for what I am sure are simply personal preferences. I like their style. I like their approach. I REALLY liked it when I found I could buy all these little jars and try them out. I have been applying the balm morning and evening for about ten days now. I am so pleased with this product! As is said, "a little goes a long way" and the application is so different than other skin creams. Those are smeared over and massaged in and sometimes must be waited on before the skin is ready for whatever is next. I find this balm goes on best as I gently tap it over my face and neck, then as it warms, I can so gently distribute it across my skin. It is very apparent that this is about skin "nourishment" rather than mere "protection". (Read: a synthetic barrier doing who-knows-what to my body while purporting to come between me and all the bad stuff out there.) I like it. You should try a jar. Or two.

I take medicine that dries me out pretty badly and drink a ton of water, but now with fishing (in the saltwater) beginning, my hands dry out really bad. It gets to the point that I can literally peel skin off my fingertips and down the fingers a bit as well. Look at how your Epic Glow balm healed my finger!

So good for your skin
I love Epic Glow. It was recommended to me because I had stitches on my face and I was told it would help the healing. And it really did. Other products were irritating but this felt so good. My scars aren't as bad as I expected them to be and I think it's from using this. I haven't had any pimples while using this either. I am going to keep using this on my face even though I am all healed up. I also can't wait to try the other kinds from vintage traditions. I had never heard of tallow balm before this but now I am hooked. I've tried other brands but they don't compare to this brand.
Epic Glow Tallow Balm
This balm is amazing, literally a life-changing situation for my skin. I worked really hard through diet, exercise, and changing my skincare routine to reduce redness and acne. This balm had a lot to do with the transformation of my skin: nourishing it and giving it the right level of moisture balance so that it could heal and repair itself. I talk about its magical powers with anyone who will listen to me. I've come to crave the scent and the daily ritual of warming it up between my palms. I can't thank Vintage Tradition enough for making an excellent product that changed my life. #epicglowforever

Magical & Different!
I am a little bit obsessed with natural beauty and have tried a lot, a lot, A LOT, of different products. The Epic Glow Tallow Balm by Vintage Tradition is special. I have never seen these ingredients grouped together EVER and I am big into buying from around the world to find the absolute best. From Africa, to several countries in Europe, South America, and Asia...at the end of the day, Epic Glow is a stand out. It is thick and requires warming between the hands. Take that warming step (really only a few seconds of your time) to get it nice and warmed before applying. It is great for the body daily and nice for the face as a special overnight treatment. I AM IN LOVE!!!
Way better than lotion!
I bought this product to use on my face instead of lotion and for areas that needed some extra healing (scars, areas of constantly dry skin). It works soooo much better than lotion because it absorbs and doesn't feel greasy. It seems like it has helped all the areas I've used it consistently but that is a very unscientific thing to say--I like how it feels and that's the most important part for me. I've tried multiple scents and this one is my favorite and it has extra healing oils beyond just the tallow.
Epic Glow Diminishes Age Spots!
Since I began using Epic Glow I have seen the brown spots on the tops of my hands and arms noticeably diminish. It also adds moisture to my face and makes my skin look younger which is a good thing for someone who is starting her seventh decade!

Heals in hours not days
This stuff is amazing! If you have deep cracked heels or fingers. Healed my cracked heels in 1 night! I've also used this on my fingertips, cuticles, & my grandson's sore bottom. It literally heals in hours!
I just wanted to give an update on how your Epic Glow Tallow Balm is working for me. I purchased it to try on my rosacea to see if it would help. I'd tried everything from high-priced "natural" skin care to homemade remedies. Nothing really made a difference. I stumbled upon your products on Instagram and decided to give it a try. I used the Epic Glow on my face—I wasn't crazy about the smell, but literally overnight my skin looked a bit better, so I tried it again and continued to use—my skin looks healthy again—I had begun to think it never would! I don't have the rough dryness that had become the norm for me—I'm truly amazed! I am including the before and after photos. Thank you for making such a wonderful product!

Worked Amazingly on my daughter's Eczema
I had been looking for something Natural my daughter's itchy Eczema arm. In recent months it has gotten worse and she stopped wearing short sleeve shirts. Mother's guilt was killing me because Dr. Prescribed a steroid cream and I was held out at the expense of my daughter's raw itchy arm. I have been throwing everything at this Eczema, Probiotics, Vitamin D3, Honey ointment from France and making my own concoctions. I recently came across someone's Eczema testimonial on Vintage Tradition Epic Glow Tallow. Went to their website and was super happy to see they had sample sizes of all their Tallow Balms. I bought 4! Happy to report that after only 3days of applying the Epic Glow Tallow on her arm twice a day her arm looks better than it has in over a year!! The red inflamed patches in the fold of her arm are gone and she says that it itches only sometimes. I'm so excited to see what her arm will look after 3 weeks! I also got the Pretty Glow for me and LOVE the smell and feel. Super hydrating and absorbs quickly. feels very natural not greasy on the skin.
Psoriasis healing and more!
I have had an ongoing issue with psoriasis on my right leg just above my ankle. It intensifies in our humid south Louisiana weather and I would find myself scratching until my leg was bleeding during sleep. I have made numerous creams from plant based organic cold pressed oils but nothing ever lasted more than 1-2 days as far as relief. I started using some samples of tallow balm and they all helped. After reading reviews on the Epic Glow Tallow Balm I decided to bite the bullet and buy it. I received it on July 3rd and immediately applied it to my ankle area. It felt like my skin was being fed. So I've been applying it 2x a day since the 3rd (today is the 7th) and I'm in awe of the results. The itching is gone, the red and silver scales are gone, and it looks to me like healing is happening. I also have been using it on my face and feet and I was told by a co-worker that my wrinkles are almost gone on my forehead and around my eyes.(I am almost 56 yrs young!) I have been applying it as well to my husband's face and I can visibly see a dramatic change in his eye area. (He is almost 60 and has sun damage) I am completely sold on this product line especially the Epic Glow. Don't question the price, this product is gold.

Quality natural ingredients that actually work!
Fantastic, Fantastic product! I am very focused on healthy products for my family, and this balm hits all the marks. I have struggled with acne since having my son, and this product helps with dryness without causing breakouts or buildup. I use it on any rash my son develops, and it quickly eases and helps the irritation. We use it on lips also. The smell is very mild of cod oil, and I actually don't mind the scent at all. It absorbs very quickly anyway, and the smell fades once it absorbes. This is my nightly cream for any problem spots and around the eyes. Really I can't say enough. If you are concerned with what goes on your skin and therefore in your body, then these products are perfect! They actually work.
