The All-in-One Balm – Pot of Gold Skin Balm (all natural skin relief)

by xin on November 30, 2010

For those who know me well, they also know that I can’t quite handle pain and any open wound/cut I have, I must balm or bandage it.

Being clumsy, cuts are nothing uncommon to me.

Pot of Gold Skin Balm

When I saw the Pot of Gold Skin Balm, it came together with a little card with the major functions, with multi-purpose being the selling point. It is said to be used for: eczema, psoriasis, cuts, burns, scars, acne & more for all skin types. To read more about it, click here!

What I have it here is a 15g of balm. Considering that you only need to use a little, this should last you for a good while.

The packaging is rather minimal and there is no risk or spilling in your handbag.

Though I can’t vouch for it healing acne, but it is pretty good in handling wounds. Well, I tried but unfortunately it did not heal my acne 🙁


Some time ago, I punctured the skin of my finger. It may not be a big wound but it was quite deep and it hurt badly when I washed or knocked against the table.

And the Pot of Gold Skin Balm was sitting in front of me, calling me.

Applied Pot of Gold Skin Balm on the cut

The instruction says to only apply a thin layer on the cut, but I was being paranoid and decided to slap a thick layer, so the layer would still be a little left there when I accidentally rubbed some off.

I then went to bed.

Healed with Pot of Gold Skin Balm

The next morning when I woke up, my skin healed and was repaired already. Nice!

Now, you might say that my wound would still heal without balm overnight. You may have a point, but it has helped to relieve the annoying pricking pain while I was awake.

So, why not?

Be warned though, this balm contains bee wax and some people could be allergic to it. If you are allergic to sulphur or sticking plasters, do not use this.

I personally am allergic to certain types of sticking plasters, but this has not been any issue for me.

Overall, I would say this is a very handy emergency balm, lug it with you, and you may save  lives!

Pot of Gold Skin Balm is available on Nature in a Box for RM25/15g.

I’ve considered buying this balm before for my eczema, but so far am using Burt’s Bees hand salve and it seems to do a dandy job of moisturizing my skin – not sure if it aids the healing process though.

Lol Gee I recently got a papercut in the exact same spot =_= It hurt for like 2-3 days. Wonder if this could have helped. Nice name though xD

Lol xin, funny you asked. I did, actually.. but just a short trip to Guardian’s. Gosh… Every single person STARED at me =x Especially the old uncles who walked past Guardian’s and couldn’t stop staring.

I don’t usually go out with these makeup on though =) Nicole is just practicing on my face as she’s a makeup student ^^
