I was excited to try this product for two main reasons: 1) To see what difference it made to my little man as far as his nappy rash was concerned, and 2) To see if it helped my eczema at all.
Firstly, to me Yumbums kind of smells like chocolate. It's a very pleasant, natural smell that is obviously a lot nicer to apply to bub than the other chemical barrier creams that you can get. We're very lucky in that bub doesnt really get bad bouts of nappy rash all that often. He mainly just gets a small red irritated area now and then and any time I used this balm it cleared any redness almost straight away. I've come to using it after almost every nappy change just as a precaution against anything popping up and he's had clear skin for over a week now.
As for my eczema, this balm definitely eases any dryness and itchiness I get without being too greasy. As I said before, it's got a pleasant, almost chocolate like smell which makes using this balm a lot more pleasant than other chemical smelling creams like cortisone that I have to resort to using sometimes.
The only negative thing I could say about this balm is that it's texture can make it a little difficult to get out of the pot and spread around. It's a very thick balm which can be a little clumpy sometimes. To me this is something which can be easily overlooked though because the benefits of using something so natural obviously outweigh a small problem like this.
