Product Review: 'Restorative Skin Balm' by CV Skinlabs

This is the third product from the CV Skinlabs line I’ve tried so far. I was really happy with not only the effectiveness, but the product’s versatility. It’s a 100% organic and natural petrolatum-free balm that nourishes, softens and moisturizes severely dry skin, lips and cuticles, while calming sensitive, irritated skin. It’s the ideal remedy for not only replenishing moisture, but also healing and soothing cuts, scrapes, burns, IV areas, and new scars.

I use it most frequently as a super rich nighttime lip balm. I love mixing raw honey with sugar and using that as a homemade lip scrub, then applying the CV Skinlabs Restorative Balm. It leaves my lips feeling soft, supple and moisturized all day. I also use it a lot on my cuticles. It doesn’t have a strong scent, and absorbs quickly while still providing long-lasting moisture to my skin.

It’s derived from 100% organic and natural ingredients, and free all synthetic fragrances & dyes, parabens, formaldehyde, 1,4-dioxiane, hydroquinone, phthalates, mineral oil/petrolatum, silicones, propylene glycol, SLS/SLES, PEG/PPG, triclosan, disodium EDTA, hydroquinone, talc, MEA-DEA-TEA or chemical sunscreens.

Key IngredientsCalendula, Sea Buckthorn Oil, Arnica—a powerful trio of plant-based antioxidants, fat-soluble vitamins and sesquiterpene lactones (a class of naturally occurring plant terpenoids), all of which are known for their healing, immune boosting, antiseptic and skin-regeneration properties.+ Carnauba + Bee’s Wax—safeguards the moisture barrier.+ Vitamin E—powerful, proven antioxidant; aids in wound healing.

Along with those potent key ingredients, this advanced therapy balm is infused with the exclusiveCV Skinlabs Tri-Rescue complex; a blend of turmeric, alpha-bisabolol and reishi mushroom. Together these ingredients provide anti-inflammatory, wound-healing and skin-soothing properties that enable repair and healing of damaged skin.

A .5oz tube of the Restorative Skin Balm is available for $26.00 at! A teeny bit goes a long way so .5oz will definitely last a while. This balm makes the perfect winter go-to for dry skin, cuticle and lips, but can also be used year-round to sooth and heal minor cuts, scrapes, burns, IV areas, and new scars. Overall, I really love this product, and would definitely recommend it!
