I am 79 years of age and since the 1970s, I have been plagued with dry skin. I have taken the advice of Doctors of dermatology. None of the various medicines have worked. The dry skin has been a continuous problem. Mineral oil, as baby oil, had the best success. But 2 to 3 weeks ago I purchased a 10 ounce can of Bag Balm and a good coating well rubbed into the skin has been the best solution. I have no dry and cracked skin, anymore. I am very pleased with the result and will continue to use Bag Balm from now on.

I had seen the familiar Bag Balm container in drug stores for years before finally buying some. I decided to purchase it after seeing an article about it in the local paper here. It spoke of its history and its superior moisturizing and protective qualities, and, though it was originally designed for use on livestock, it has become extremely popular with people. Like a lot of other folks, I sometimes suffer from dry skin. Especially in the winter time when the air is cold and dry. And when I am out on a hike and my skin is exposed to dry wintry blasts of air continually. A visit to the drug store aisle to check out skin conditioners will serve to enlighten one that they are certainly not alone. There are tons of every kind of skin conditioner one can imagine. All conditioners, or balms, seem to work well at first. They moisten and condition the skin effectively enough. However, the real test comes over time in the hopes that it will well stay that way for a while. That is where this Bag Balm (BB) goes to the head of the class over all others.

If you have never seen or used BB before, you may at first be put of by its consistency, which will remind one of a thinner version of Vaseline. Although it is a little thick and gooey like Vaseline, it does not stay in that state for long once it is spread on the skin. It feels at first rather slimy, but quickly dries and forms a very effective coating on the skin. Though you can feel it on your skin for hours after application, it neither feels tacky nor sticks to your clothing. And it is nothing less than superior in its moisturizing properties. Even the driest skin will not see BB just disappear and be in need of another application in just a couple of hours like so many other lotions.

Bag Balm was highly recommended by a lady who worked in a professional beauty supply store to help with patches of severely dry and irritated skin on my shins during the freezing New York winter. Now, it doesn't seem like much to get a recommendation on a skin cream in a store like that, but I should tell you that they didn't even stock this item. She sent me to the drug store down the street to get it!

Bag Balm will NOT win any prizes for it's smell (just a touch medicinal) but it is a miracle cream if you are really suffering from patches of skin so dry that you end up raking with your nails to stop the dry skin itch.

Nothing I write could indicate what a life saver this stuff is. But, I guarantee that if you try it yourself you will agree that it had amazingly soothing properties.

I am a surgeon, and have always maintained the assumption that no product could actually accelerate the healing of wounds beyond what a healthy immune system could accomplish in a healthy person with a good attitude and proper habits. This product makes me question my assumption. I have no data, but it is my personal impression that fingertip cracks and other maladies resulting from dry or chapped fingers and hands actually heal faster when Bag Balm is used on them. I recommend going to bed with an excess of Bag Balm applied to affected areas of hands, covered by gloves to protect sheets, blankets, etc. I've used it successfully on my feet, also; in that case I recommend socks in place of the gloves.

At the very least, Bag Balm will soften calluses and dried-up fingertip cracks and cuticle problems so they don't catch on clothing (like silk) and will make such irritations more comfortable. I suspect it does more.

My family has used this product for many years and it has worked well for them. I, on the other hand, cannot use Bag Balm. I think it is due to my Sulfa allergy. I may be wrong, but it is important that people be aware of anything they are using, especially when it is not the initial intended usage. I tried it on my feet and my skin began to get red, itchy, blister, and peel. I had a little redness on my hands, as well, but I had wiped it off and washed my hands after applying it to my feet. Anyway, I noticed someone giving a warning about 8-Hydroxyquinoline sulfate and I wanted to share my experience. I know Bag Balm worked well for my family, so just be aware that it isn't for everyone. I realize very few people have a Sulfa allergy, so this product will probably work great for the majority of the people like it did for my family.

I added a few drops of spearmint essential oil to about an ounce of bag balm and it improved the smell a lot! Especially nice if you use it as lip balm this way.

I really can't believe how well this worked on diaper rash. My daughter had slept through a full diaper a few nights ago. She never wakes up to be changed, so often I will check her while she's asleep, but this particular night she had been sick and I really didn't want to wake her up... well, the next morning she had diaper rash from hell and it only got worse the more products I tried. I tried zinc oxide, Desitin, plain Vaseline, baby powder hoping to dry it out, NOTHING worked. Every time I changed her she'd cry and so would I. Finally I told my husband "We need to take her to the doctor, it looks raw and painful." He told me "Let's try one more thing and if it doesn't work, we'll take her in." I found a review for Bag Balm here on Amazon and ran out to try it. Some complained about the smell, I like it. I slathered it on her bottom, fastened her diaper and tucked her in for the night.

WOW!!! The next morning when we checked her, the diaper rash had reduced by I'd say 75%, and was not red at all. We were psyched that she seemed to be getting some relief! By the next night her rash was gone. I can't thank my lucky stars enough for this wonderful product. I've wasted so much money on baby creams, and this ended up being the only thing that worked. My daughter thanks you as well!
