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!

Helps my rosacea and dry winter hands
I have mild rosacea on my cheek- type 2 with bumps/rash that worsens in the winter. I have yet to find a product that helps, until I started using this tallow balm. Although my rosacea is not completely gone yet, I no longer have any painful bumps and warmth on my cheek with flare ups. After using this product for about a month, I wanted to see if it was actually making a difference compared to my previous moisturizer, which was a plant-based shea butter/coconut blend (similar texture to the tallow balm). so I used the old product instead of the tallow balm one night. The morning after using the old product, I woke up with a painful, hot rash on my cheek. I put some tallow balm on right away and have not stopped using it since! The overall appearance of my skin looks healthier and glowier. I also use this on my hands 2 times a day, and it is the only thing that really works to moisturize and soften my dry, cracked hands in winter. I am going to repurchase in the larger size!

Before finding Vintage Tradition, my nighttime skin care routine took about an hour each night. I suffer with Rosacea, and every night after removing my make-up and applying rose water, I would sit in front of the fan for my skin to calm down and burning to reside. For years I have used Neutrogena makeup wipe remover and a plain Dove white bar with no fragrance. This was what my skin could tolerate. I was given Vintage Tradition to try and was told to take a before picture and an after picture in a couple of weeks and I should see a difference. These are my results after only 3 applications!! ZERO burning and ZERO flare ups! I have been using it for 5 weeks now and in that time have had no skin irritation and my skin is so soft. I have been sharing this with everyone I come into contact with. I can't say enough good things about this product and will be a customer for life!!

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.

I absolutely love it! this is a great moisturizer, and not irritating for my rosacea/dermatitis inflamed skin. I was having a rosacea and dermatitis flare up for 8 weeks straight! but with Benadryl and this moisturizer I was finally able to get it to stop. Now I'm off of Benadryl and just using this moisturizer and my skin is healthy and moisturized.
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!

Relief from rosacea
I've battled with rosacea for several years. I was not sure the tallow balm would help, but thought I'd give it a try because my chiropractor recommended it to me. I'M SO GLAD I DID! The dry scaly skin on my cheeks has greatly improved. I apply it at least 2x per day and anytime I feel like I need more. I would highly recommend trying tallow balm for ANY skin condition!
