Selexir peace balm

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of meeting Elena Herdieckerhoff and Mirella Messerschmitt, two lovely ladies who are the brains (and beauty!) behind the rather impressive Selexir peace balm:

Elena Herdieckerhoff, Mirella Messerschmitt, Selexir peace balm, Selexir peace balm review, Treatment for eczema, What to use for dry irritated skin, What to use to treat eczema,

The balm came about as a result of Elena's personal struggle with skin problems in her twenties. Having had relatively normal skin, she suddenly found herself experiencing extreme redness, irritation and dryness. As it was on her face, there was no way of hiding it and having tried both steroids and herbal remedies, she started researching natural ingredients and combining them together in the hope of finding a cure.

After 2 years, she finally found a formula she was happy with, and when friends reported similar results, she decided to teamed up with Mirella and officially launch the product.

Selexir peace balm is made up of 21 natural ingredients, including blackcurrant, black cumin, shea butter, mango seed butter, avocado oil and evening primrose oil to name a few.

As you'd expect from such a rich ingredient list, the balm is extremely thick in texture and has a subtle herbal scent. Because it's so rich, I personally wouldn't use it on my face, but it's been an essential for my hands and legs which tends to suffer from dryness, especially at this time of year.

Now I don't suffer from eczema, but I find the balm extremely nourishing and it really helps to get rid of that irritated burning sensation you can get from very dry skin or after shaving. The balm takes a while to sink in so I tend to use it more at night, but it's free from chemical such as parabens, silicones and petroleum so eczema suffers can reapply as often as they need to.

The only downside is the price of the product. At £99 for 75ml (or £20 for a 15ml tester) it's not cheap, however having seen family members suffer from eczema I know many of them would welcome anything to help relieve their symptoms. In fact, I'm going to pass on the rest of this Selexir peace balm to my brother, and if it helps his eczema, then I would be more than happy buy him another tube once this runs out.

Have you tried Selexir peace balm before? What do you use to soothe dry irritated skin?

    1. Thank you! It is a shame but at the event they explained that didn't want to compromise on quality and wanted to stick to the original formula. Maybe you could try the travel size first to see how you'd get on with it? x
