As a style editor, I test out a lot of beauty products. Sometimes, serendipity happens and I receive something I need — like dry shampoo on a particularly oily hair day. Every so often, a product will come along that you never knew you needed. Enter: Cliniderm’s Skin Repair Balm.
After suffering from strep throat, shortly followed by the flu (because life is cruel), my nose has been a poor, sore, cracked mess.
Usually, I’m a petroleum jelly kind of girl, smothering my nostrils in the stuff until the pain subsides. But petroleum jelly is oily and thick. And if you’re planning on leaving the house, having shiny, goopy nostrils is not a good look. This little tube changes all that.
The balm — designed to soothe redness, dryness, chapped, damaged and irritated skin — has a lotion-like consistency but packs the same punch a heavy cream would. It’s paraben and fragrance free and feels like sweet, sweet relief on a cold-ridden nose. Where your normal skin creams might sting, this Skin Repair Balm goes on smoothly for perfectly invisible protection. No longer will you feel terror from blowing your nose again.
WHO IT’S FOR:
Anyone with a cold who has gone through far too many tissues to mention.
