Suu Balm: The Soothing & Calming Cream

Central heating, biting cold winds and dehydration can all contribute to dry and uncomfortable skin in Winter. I suffer with this, as I know many other people do too. Currently it’s really cold in the UK, and as I work from home I tend to have the heating on full blast for several hours a day. Combine that with hot showers that dry out the skin, it’s easy to end up with itchy and flaky skin. If you suffer with eczema then you’ll be particularly prone to experiencing this, and will know just how much it can drive you to distraction.

I’ve been trying out Suu Balm, a relatively new product to the market which launched in October 2017. Suu Balm is an itch relief moisturiser, specially developed for people with dry, itchy or eczema prone skin. All the ingredients have been carefully chosen for people with sensitive skin.

suu balm

Some of the key features which made me want to try it include:

  • It claims to work in less than 5 minutes
  • It contains menthol to relieve itchy skin
  • Ceramides are included in the formulation to moisturise and repair dry damaged skin
  • It soothes inflamed areas
  • It’s safe for sensitive skin
  • There are no steroids or parabens
  • It’s non-greasy
  • It’s also cruelty free and vegan friendly

I’ve never tried a menthol-based cream before for dry skin. However, when I had insanely dry and cracked lips during my Roaccutane treatment, the only lip balm which helped them (out of the 12 or so I tried) was Carmex, which is menthol-based. So I figured there must be something to this ingredient which makes such a difference. 

I’ve found that this cream works really well at soothing itchy skin and relieving dryness. I enjoy the menthol scent which I find quite uplifting. I imagine this would be a nice cooling cream to use during hotter months because of this. You have to be a little careful using it near eyes, because the menthol can sting your eyes. However, it works well on the face nevertheless and is also a good impromptu lip balm.

It does sink in very quickly, and is non-greasy as claimed. Suu Balm works well for soothing itchy skin and also hydrates, reducing the severity of very dry skin.

It is currently available in over 600 Lloyds Pharmacy stores in the UK, and you can also find it on Amazon. It retails for £14.99 for a 75ml tube.

    i also love products i can apply on wet skin after baths/showers, they really seem to help moisturise

  2. January 16, 2018 / 8:57 am

    Keep your night time moisturiser on the bedside table and apply it at the very last moment, before you turn out the lights. That way it has all night to work completely undisturbed

    I keep tubes of hand cream and foot cream on my bedside table, and make sure I put them on right before I go to sleep so that they have the whole night to work.

    When you want deep exfoliation, do it longer, not harder, as you cleanse your skin.

  9. Ren Taylor
    January 17, 2018 / 12:13 pm

    Exfoliate 3 times a week …. always use moisturizer and take make up off before bed!

    Limit your sun exposure – the sun is so damaging and if you want a tan then fake it out of a bottle!

  16. January 17, 2018 / 1:34 pm

    Moisturise and cleanse everyday but I always have a hot shower first so all the moisture is going into my skin.
    It makes it feel so good.

  17. Sarah Taylor-Fergusson
    January 17, 2018 / 1:38 pm

    When you are not quite fully dry after a bath, start applying the moisturiser generously, everywhere, quickly.

    my top tip would be to always take your make up off as soon as you can at the end of your day! and always wash your make up brushes with baby shampoo, they can get so much spot causing bacteria on them

  23. clara

  31. Sheila Evans
    January 17, 2018 / 8:46 pm

    The right products for age and skin type – buy the best you can afford – don’t try to cut corners with cheaper products that might harm sesitive skin, use and remove as soon as you can and never sleep in make-up, use a really good quality make-up remover that also conditions and moisturises, treat little outbreaks asap – and smile as each new day dawns!

  32. Carole Nott
    January 17, 2018 / 10:59 pm

    January 18, 2018 / 10:15 am

  54. Ruth Harwood
    January 22, 2018 / 2:45 pm

    never wash your face too often as it strips the skin of its natural oils – I always make sure to do whats right for my skin rather than what others tell me to do xx

    I suffer from Ecsema on my hands and face which seems to be triggered by weather and soaps so I try to use gentle natural products that don’t irraitate my skin. My top skin tip would be to cleanse, tone and moisturize every morning and evening, and use a pore cleansing facepack once a week to keep spots at bay x

  59. Owen Blowin

    February 1, 2018 / 11:37 am

    I don’t have one as such to be honest.
    I always use a face scrub at night to remove all my make up and moisturise.
    I have to be honest enough to say I dont always moisturise my body (because I’m lazy), but I do try to eat healthy and drink healthily (I’ve just completed dry January so very proud of myself)

    I wish more companies would offer samples. I have itchy dry skin on my face and behind my ears but I can’t afford to spend £14.99 on a product that may or may not work.
