My daughter had an allergic reaction yesterday and came out in hives (urticaria) which has only ever happened before when she reacted to penicillin. Anyway, in checking all the lumps and bumps and red patches / insanely itchy areas she pointed out to me how rough her left elbow was where she leans on it while she's drawing using the laptop - she puts her weight on her left side as she's right-handed. I went and got my pot of Smooth Skin Balm and rubbed it over her left elbow. This afternoon, when I finally got home after two hours at Currys, she rubbed her elbow and couldn't believe how smooth it is, and how totally different it feels, after only the one application. Thanks Jennifer

the knuckles on the fingers of my right hand are weirdly raised/enlarged and are also extremely dry. The knuckles on both hands are quite red/dry and the skin is very dry between the ring finger and little finger of my left hand. Most creams have little to no effect, or none that lasts, so I'm keeping my very unattractive fingers crossed that regular use of the balm Jennifer very kindly recommended for me to try will help combat the dryness problem as my hands were not like this when I was younger! Update The balm has really changed my hands- a couple of days back my daughter told me she's really impressed with the difference it's made to them. For a start, I have knuckles on my fingers instead of miniature Auntie Bessie's Yorkshire puddings (raised round the edge, dipped in the centre!). x

I had very dry and itchy elbows. After one use of your Smooth Skin Balm my elbows are no longer red and they have stopped itching. I am ashamed to say that my elbows were getting scaly and now they are no longer. I am truly amazed that one application of such a lovely smelling product can make such a difference.

Since my brush with womb cancer I've had a healthy respect for getting older and I live by the adage that age doesn't matter as long as I reach it. To me, each new birthday is a milestone on my journey away from cancer. The downside of having had my ovaries removed is that I feel I look every one of my fifty-three years and the impact the lack of oestrogen has had on my skin is very obvious to me. I should explain that, having had an oestrogen-fed cancer, I've not been allowed to take HRT or any form of natural alternative that may have an oestrogen-like effect, and this is in order to minimise any risk of possible recurrence. I've been using Defiant Beauty Smooth Skin Balm every day and I'm amazed at the results! The skin on the back of my hands was so rough and dry that it was sticking up like scales, as well as beginning to split and bleed occasionally. My knuckles were red and enlarged and, in addition, the knuckles of my fingers were very rough, raised and thickened. I'd decided that pockets were the way forward, as even the most initially promising creams or lotions had no lasting effect. I'm pleased and grateful to say that, with daily use of Smooth Skin Balm, the backs of my hands are smooth and soft - no more scales, no more raised and thickened skin on my knuckles, my hands are vastly improved and human again! No pockets needed. Having seen the miraculous change in my hands, which even my mother and daughter have commented on, I decided to also use the balm on my neck. The skin at the base of my throat was forming criss-cross lines but, once again, from the first application it was clear that Smooth Skin Balm was making a difference and the base of my throat now looks smooth again. Encouraged by two successes in a very short space of time, I decided to try using the balm on my face morning and evening. I got home from work one day soon after and my daughter, quite startled, asked whether I was using the balm on my face because it looked smoother. Need I say more? My forehead is smoother, my crows feet have reduced and my skin feels firmer. At 53 I obviously still have wrinkles, but the quality of my skin has definitely improved and that's something I thought I could never regain after my ovaries were removed almost three years ago due to womb cancer. My next experiment will be my elbows - I have my Grandmother's, except she was in her 80s when hers looked like mine! I highly recommend Defiant Beauty Smooth Skin Balm and am so grateful to Jennifer Young for this lovely product that truly works. It's my morning and evening treat!
