Badger Healing Balm

Badger is a company that produces USDA Certified Organic and Cruelty-free skincare products.  That alone makes me adore this brand!

Their Healing Balm is made from Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Beeswax, Castor Oil, Aloe Vera and Essential Oils of Birch and Wintergreen.  It's great for folks who have patches of dry, rough and cracked skin. 

In my case, my hands are so dry that sometimes they get a bit flaky.  Badger's balm is one of the products I've been using the last couple of years to help soothe and improve my skin's condition.  It goes on slightly greasy but that goes away quickly because the product gets absorbed into the skin within a few minutes.  I love how my skin feels smoother and softer after I apply this.  It can be a bit difficult to spread because it's in balm (and not cream or lotion) form.  But you don't need a lot for this to work.

I prefer buying the small tin of the Healing Balm so that I can bring it with me anywhere.  I like the fact that the pot doesn't pop open easily so none of the product goes on to my stuff.

Of all the Badger products I've tried, I like the scent of this balm the least.  It has a very faint ointment-like smell.  The good news is, Badger has an unscented version of this balm.  The bad news, it's not available where I live.  Until I find an unscented version at the store or manage to find an online shop that will ship here, I'll continue using the original one.

It's time for me to buy another tin because the one I've been using is about to hit the expiration date.  Good stuff  - definitely worth a try for those who have not had a bit of Badger goodness.


  1. Great post! How much is this though? And how long did the small tin last for you?

  2. Hi Michelle! Thanks for leaving a comment :)

    The small tin lasted a year & a half, given I didn't use it everyday. I'd use it usually on weekdays only because the air conditioning at work is really harsh on my skin. If you get the large tin (which is probably about the size of your palm), it should last you two to three years depending on how often you use the product.

    The small tin is about $5. At Rustan's, they don't sell the small tin individually but they have a set of 3 tins for Php 795 - this includes the sore muscle and sleep balm (great products too!). The big tin is more or less Php 500. Sorry, I can't remember the exact price but it's around that range.

    Btw, always check the expiration date. It's by the side of the lid. :)

  3. Woah! I only read this now! Thanks a bunch! Will drop by and check that out!!

    Oh, and I gave you an award!

  4. I need to use the sleep balm regularly! I keep forgetting... Thank you for that by the way... :)


Thanks for giving my blog some love ♥
