Why I Wash My Face with Dirt & Oil

The Food Renegade explains how she uses our Tallow Balm as part of her facial cleansing!

I've been using this balm for quite a while. My skin feels so soft and nourished. The other day, I went to lunch with some friends, and one of my friends asked me what products I'm using on my face. She said, your skin looks so bright and tight! A little goes a long way. I'm so glad I found Vintage Tradition. This is the only moisturizing product I use on my face. It's comforting to know there are no chemicals in it.

After using tallow balm for several months and many jars, my post menopausal skin has improved so much, it is remarkable. My skin feels like silk, or a baby's skin - take your pick. They both are true! I still have some wrinkles, but because all the skin of my face is softer and more supple, the wrinkles are not as visible, so hey - I'm not caring about them any more. I just want to say that the longer I have used it, the improvements have continued. So don't be impatient. If you want long lasting beautiful skin, use this for the long term. I'm so in love with this company and this product!

change is good
Several people commented on how clear and pretty my face was looking. I never had blemishes but everyone can see a change for the better. Too many positive comments on my facial skin not to realize this product is healthy for my skin!! All healthy ingredients!

Want to Take Years Off Your Face? Try Tallow Balm!
Tallow balm is amazing stuff!! After using this on my face for a few days, I couldn't believe how fantastic my skin looked. It's like a magic age eraser–my skin looked not only smoother and clearer, but so much more vital!

I have tried a variety of eye creams over the past few years, from department store products to just straight coconut oil, and I have not found anything satisfactory UNTIL I tried the tallow balm! I was a little skeptical at the thought of using an animal product at first...and if it were not for the wonderful little sample size, I may not have taken the plunge. But, for that price, I figured I had nothing to lose. I WISH I had taken a "before" picture the night I first applied it around my eyes. The next morning, there was such a dramatic change! The smile lines had firmed up to be pretty nonexistent, and my skin was so smooth! I have not stopped using it since. I love it! My skin craves this stuff and literally feels happy when I apply it. I am ready to buy a full size of the Pretty Girly balm for myself and sample sizes for my friends. Thank you for offering such a wonderful product!

I have to say, I have tried EVERY product out there, and spent tons of cash over the years doing so...but nothing compares to this amazing balm!!Just as an experiment, when I ran out of my Vintage Tradition Balm, I bought a face cream that I had used in the past. My face broke out, patches of dry and oily skin emerged and I was so upset. I knew I had to get my Vintage Tradition balm ASAP. I hardly EVER get breakouts or redness when I use the balm. My skin actually glows! I put a little on in the early morning, prior to my gym workout with a little lip gloss and my skin is dewy, bright and glowing! I also wear it under my makeup during the day, and after I wash my face for bed. I will never stop using this...ever!! I hope they never stop selling/making it!! SUCH A GREAT, MILD NATURAL PRODUCT!!!! no chemicals here!! GREAT STUFF!!!!!! I highly recommend it.

Best face cream ever!
I have always been a face cream snob. From Chanel to Obaji to Skin Medic ... what ever was the latest greatest I had to have. In my search for a more natural organic cream I ran across vintage tradition tallow cream. I now use this tallow cream. I use the unscented, but any scent would be great! I am 58 years old and never been happier with a product. I no longer worry about chemicals or additives on my skin. The funny part is my husband is now also using this amazing cream! It has been an amazing transformation for his skin.

I have been using the Tallow Balm for a year or so and it has been everything I wanted in a face cream. Not too thick, not too thin...just right. Super moisturizing without being greasy. Does not encourage pimples. Heals the skin rather than coating it.

No wrinkles!
This is a wonderful healthy product, which I have used for years and LOVE, not only because it has no chemicals, but because it is the best possible skin product available. I'm 43 years old and don't have any wrinkles on my face - I'm asked often what I use on my face by both friends and strangers. No one believes how old I am! A little goes a long way, it takes me a long time to go through a jar, it's totally worth the price. Is better for your skin AND will work better than the chemicals at the makeup counter.

This balm is great for any dry or damaged skin, and I use it on my lips and face every day - the skin on my face is so much smoother and clearer now. You don't have to apply a lot for it to be effective, so a jar of this lasts a long time, and you really only have to put it on once a day and it'll keep your skin feeling awesome all day. It doesn't feel greasy or sit on top of your skin and get on stuff. What else can I say, this balm is awesome, definitely get it and try it out if you haven't already.

Freedom & Joy At 60+
I love this cream! My 60+ sensitive skin has been through a lot but it is now well nourished, leaving me amazed and happy that it is never too late for one's face to respond to what is really good and pure. NEVER BEFORE in my life did I EVER receive compliments about my complexion but I do now! IMAGINE, AT MY AGE! I am so thrilled I discovered Vintage Tradition's Tallow Balm! It is perfect for my skin. I apply it once a day in the morning. I could not believe the compliments I began getting when I started using it -- praising my complexion even as I wore no make-up and USING NOTHING ELSE DAILY BUT THIS PRODUCT -- praise from strangers and other women. What freedom and joy to use this INSTEAD of make-up. I go out with confidence knowing this balm is all I need to put my best face forward and age gracefully. I turned to it because I have always had very sensitive skin that reacted to anything. FINALLY I found the simple wholesome product I have always wanted -- with no suspicious and strange-sounding ingredients that have a string of chemicals on the label you can't even pronounce or have allergens like soy. I really like Pretty Girly scent -- delicate and fresh feeling -- am sure it will make you smile and glow like the pretty girl YOU really are!

...Since having such success with my rash, I've been using your Tallow Balm on my face every day, and my skin looks fresh and younger. Before using it, I thought it would make me break out, but I don't have a single blemish. I think the "happy" lines around my eyes are lessened as well. I love this product!
—Beth, Lehi, Utah

I purchased a 2-oz jar of your Almost Unscented Tallow Balm as an everyday cream for my 1 year old daughter...but have been using it all for myself! My skin has honestly never looked better. My skin tone is even and smooth. The little lines around my eyes and on my forehead have vanished. It even cleared up a hormonal pimple that was brewing on my chin overnight! I can't believe how fast and positively my skin reacted. I feel like I'm glowing and have even been going makeup-free so all can see my real skin. I also used some on my upper arms last night, and my patches of keratosis pilaris are almost gone this morning. Amazing! I will most definitely be back to order more soon...and give the original jar back to my daughter! :)

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".
—Debbie, Mount Holly, North Carolina

Friend: "Can we talk privately for a second?" (...drags me to another room away from the men.) "What have you done to your skin? You look younger. Have you had Botox? Tell me what brand of cream you are using." (...demanding to know my secret!)
—Krystal, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

I've been using this product and love it more than any skin care I've ever tried! I use it on my face and neck, and the results are so much better than every expensive name brand product I've tried. Even my husband noticed how much firmer the skin on my neck and jaw-line looks.
—Becky, Coeur d'Alene, Idaho

I cannot live without my Tallow Balm! To be quite honest, I ordered it simply because I'm a sucker for anything unusual. However, I was not prepared to discover the absolutely amazing results of this miracle cream! For starters, I can't believe the way it softened the lines around my eyes. I noticed the difference instantly, and now I put it on every night!...
—Trisha, Papillion, Nebraska

...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. Oh, and as if that's not enough, I decided to use it as an eye cream, and — wonders never cease — my blepharitis (inflammation of the eyelids) started to disappear. All I can say is thank you for making this stuff. Without you, I probably would never have tried Tallow Balm, and how sad that would have been trying to manage my supposed "chronic" skin and eye conditions the rest of my life. I only wish more people would be open-minded enough to learn from the wisdom of our ancestors.
—Michelle, Long Beach, California

I just want to say how much I love your balm. I've been using it mostly as a night cream on my face, and it's working wonders. My skin is so soft and hydrated in the morning! And I never have to worry about the balm clogging my pores or leaching any nasty chemicals into my body. I just love it. I have this bad habit of occasionally biting my lips, so they tend to get raw and chapped. Your balm is so soothing and nourishing, and it really makes my lips softer. Plus, if I do bite my lips, it's okay, because the balm is edible and totally safe!
—Helen, Brighton, Massachusetts

So a very suave Italian facialist at the Four Seasons was offering me a facial. When he asked what I use on my skin, I said, "Beef tallow." You should have seen his face. I told him it was a wonderful organic blend. He asked how much it costs, "a hundred dollars?" When I told him the price, he said, "Keep it up. Your skin is fabulous!"
—Leslie, Dallas, Texas

I have tried many face creams, expensive ones at that. I heard about how tallow is the best thing you can put on your skin, so naturally I did a search and found Vintage Tradition. This stuff really does work. My skin feels firmer and fuller (not sure how to describe it). My husband even said I look younger!
—Kelly, San Diego, California

I just got my Vintage Tradition Tallow Balm last week, and I love it! The lines in my face are definitely looking better, and I know it's due to nutrition, NOT covering up problem areas! What a GREAT product!
—Ginny, Anna, Texas

Ordered this balm for my entire family for Christmas! They all loved it and I just ordered two more! It's the most amazing product. My skin (on my face) is plump and velvet smooth! LOVE it!
—Crystal, San Diego, California

I've been using the Tallow Balm as a cold cream. My mom used to put cold cream on her face every night when I was a kid. After about a week or two of using Vintage Tradition balm, my skin looks 10 times better than it used to. Youthful, glowing, gorgeous.
—Ann Marie, Los Angeles, California

I've been using the balm largely on my toddler girl. It's almost miraculous at healing her little rashes and scrapes (mine too). I love the stuff. But if I put it on my face more than once every few days, my skin breaks out.... [One week later...] It's now been exactly a week since I started using the balm on my face every day. Actually, I started going twice a day—a light swipe on dry bits in the morning and a nice layer all over before bed. The breakouts started by the second day, as was usual. This time I stuck it out. My face started clearing up around the end of the weekend, and today my skin is fantastic. It's smooth, soft, and almost glowing! I'm so glad I stuck it out. My skin was definitely detoxing! I'm excited now to see the longer term effects on my skin!
—Rachael, Albuquerque, New Mexico

It happened to me too! But now I'm glowing!
—Brooke, Raleigh, North Carolina
