Baby's eczema gone
We used this balm on our 3 month old baby's eczema and cracked skin, and it cleared it up within 2 days. I have reapplied every other day and it seems to have kept it at bay. Couldn't recommend this more. Review by Bex / (Posted on 09/10/2018)
Would not recommend!
Really disappointed with this product. Purchased following recommendation to help rosacea. After 5 weeks of using twice daily there has been no change in my skin at all! If anything it is a little bit worse! After paying £35 including delivery this is very expensive not to work! Would not recommend!

Wonder pot of goodness
Purchased this at an event after getting stung by a wasp on the way in and the lovely consultant Gail Siddal suggested it may help and indeed it worked immediately!!! I am now using on a recent operation scar too so hopeful it will work well on this too. Interestingly, since I’ve started applying the product with my fingertips and then rubbing leftover balm into my cuticles and nails, they are the strongest and longest they’ve ever been and my cuticles look much better too! This product really does seem to have a multitude of uses....a little goes a long way and I won’t ever be without it now! Review by Angel / (Posted on 15/09/2018)
Cracked heels
Amazing product for cracked heels. Used for about a week now and the cracks have almost gone. Put on every night before bed with socks. Highly recommended (alongside scholl express pedi).
Review by Kel / (Posted on 04/09/2018)
Amazing stuff!
I bought the balm on advice from my sister after going to A&E for a 2nd degree burn on my hand. Was told by nurses it would likely scar badly but having used the balm once the dressings were removed a few weeks after my accident (and pleased to find it didn’t sting the raw skin) you can’t even tell I’ve been burnt at all now!

Have also used on my horse where she had sore, weepy eyes from fly bites on the corner and it went from red and raised to healed in a week. She stood really still the second time I applied it and ongoing as it must soothe it so much she likes it (she didn’t like me even sponging it clean with water before I tried Tamanu so wouldn’t stand still usually!)

Oil content caused break-outs
Not for me. I was hoping it would clear up some of my acne scars, but I wasn't able to use it long enough to see it if worked. I had to stop use because it was me break out with more acne. I believe it is because of all the oil used in the balm. Could work for someone who doesn't need to worry about breaking out as soon as any oil touches their skin.

That's such a shame! We do understand that you're skin is as individual as you. For this reason we have a 30 day money back guarantee on all products. Get in touch with our Customer Support team info@tropicskincare.com to help you with this.

Are you able to use this on healing facial burns?

You can indeed use this on healing burns,. We wouldn't suggest using it on open wounds but healing would be absolutely fine.

Just checking before use
Is this product ok for someone with a nut allergy?

Response from Tropic HQ-
'Hi Kaz,
Although nut oils and butters are not classed as an allergen in regards to skincare, we are aware of the concerns about these ingredients and reactions on the skin and would always recommend a patch test if you’re unsure about your skin’s reaction.
We list all our ingredients in plain English on the product packaging and on our website, so you know exactly what you’re putting on your skin. While usually the processing of the raw nut to an oil or butter removes the proteins associated with an ingested allergy, we recommend those with a severe nut allergy to avoid those products with nut derivatives listed in the ingredients list, especially those with Macadamia, Tamanu or Shea. These oils and butters are what we refer to as “cold press” oils.
Whilst we make every attempt to ensure that the labelling of our products lists all of the ingredients used, our products are manufactured in an environment containing nuts, nut oils and nut derived ingredients.

Tamang Healing Balm Smell
Ive only been using my tamanu healing balm since Monday, Im using it on a portacath scar on my chest. I just wanted to check if anyone else can smell celery when you smell the balm? Due to the smell, I don't think I could use it on my lips. However, if it does the trick on my scar then I would buy again. Review by Nikkinackynooky / (Posted on 27/04/2018)
I have never left a review on anything before and would've never have thought that I would be leaving one on a skincare product before finding this! Since I can remember, I have suffered from really bad acne on my face, which over the years has left me with horrendous, dark scarring. I have really sensitive skin and any product that I would use would leave my face burning, red and would never help to fade the scarring, they would only make my skin worse. I have had my eyes on this product for months and two weeks ago I decided to buy a pot. Within a week of using the balm, my scarring has almost completely faded away which I never thought was possible. I am so thankful to have found this product and I really cannot recommend it enough!! I will definitely be buying another pot when this one runs out! Review by Chels / (Posted on 26/04/2018)
Not as amazing as I anticipated.
Have been using this healing balm every other day for two months, and unfortunately haven't noticed much difference in acne scarring.

Excellent soothing balm
Excellent product. My ambassadorLisa Hardy recommend it and I am grateful that she did. I have been using it for some time now on scars due to breast cancer operation and on a skin graft on my face both done last year. It is so easy to massage with, you only need a little and it Excelhas helped with the itching. Not so keen on the smell but then I prefer citrus scents. Have recommended it to others.

Works for my grandson's eczema!
My grandson has eczema. While I was visiting friends in England my friend had a Tropic party. They showed pics of someone who used the Tamanu Balm for eczema and it was really helping, so I thought "what the heck, nothing else is working for him". So I bought a jar. Well this has helped him so much that I have just ordered 3 more jars! He says it is the only thing that has ever worked for him. I use it on dry skin and love it.

Superb balm. My holy grail product
So I bought this on a whim last week, thinking it won’t work considering I have tried rosehip, coconut oil and a whole load of other oils to nourish my skin from the scars marks which I have. But how wrong was I. I have acne marks on my face and I’m now 28 and have battled with having scars since I was a teen, and when I bought this I was skeptical af first. It did say on this website to apply on damaged areas but I decided to apply on my cheeks, chin and forehead the night before and when I woke up I kid you not.. my skin was radiant, no redness, the scars appeared very faint and I generally looked more awake. Even the sallowness in some parts of my face appeared to have gone! I now apply it ever night and apply it on my lips as a lip balm to make them look more ‘rosy’ whenever my lips need some moisture. This balm is so so good especially when I have sensitive skin even certain essential oils or serums from other brands made my face look very red. With this balm there was no redness, perhaps my skin loved the ingredients. For the first time ever :) Review by SassyMummy / (Posted on 19/12/2017)
This really works!
Speaking to my lovely Tropic Ambassador about my 7 year old’s Keratitis Pilaris (aka chicken skin) (which is very itchy, he scratches and it bleeds and gets infected) she suggested trying the Tamanu Healing Balm and lent me some for a few days so I could see if it was ok for him and didn’t make his skin worse. Not only is this the first thing that doesn’t sting or make him itchy, within days I can notice an massive improvement to his skin. I can confidently order this product knowing it works, which is really good news after years of trying various lotions and potions! Review by Mel / (Posted on 14/12/2017)

A friend bought tamanu balm knowing I've suffered for past 8 years with psoriasis on my palm.

So far so great
I bought mini Tammany balm from a stall at a craft show. I thought to good to b true but will try. I have since got a cold and suffer badly with dry cracked nose so bad that Vaseline even stings it, only ever been able to use germolene which numbs it. I was over the sink ready to wash it off as soon as it started to sting and couldn't believe it didn't even sting a little bit. Felt amazing and stopped it from drying out.

Also bought the cleansing bar which has scrubs bits in it, smells amazing and I was able to use it on my sensitive skin without it drying it out or bringing me out in a rash. And smells amazing.

So glad I bought these and never worried about the price because of the money back guarantee. Review by Sarahf / (Posted on 11/08/2017)
Insect bites and Tamanu
Ive been amazed at this jar of healing balm!
Last week I was eaten by an insect, 2 bites on my upper arms and 2 on my face and neck. The ones on my face were quite angry and red, very sore and swollen. My daughter had a jar of Tamanu so she suggested that I apply this to the bites on my face. I applied for 3 days, twice a day and this gave me so much relief. The stinging and soreness subsided immediately.
I had used an antihistamine cream for 2-3 days previously and it really did nothing.
A week after I was bitten, the bites on my face are faint and are not painful yet the bites on my arms are still red and itchy (I didn't use the Tamanu on these).
Just 3 days of using this balm has done wonders to treat these bites!
It smells gorgeous too! I shall be getting little quantity of this wonderbalm to keep in my bag! Review by TraceyS / (Posted on 10/08/2017)
Great for nappy rash
I was gifted a pot of this 2 and a half years ago after having a baby. I think they were thinking srretchmarks, but I developed severe contact dermatitis just after. I think it may havd been hormone and stress related, plus constantky washing hands as a new mum. With this balm I went from waking up in the middle of the night crying because I wanted to itch my skin on my hands off, to it all soothing down and clearing up. Later on my daughter developed painful nappy rash, we tried a few nappy rash ointments but they didn't help. I tried Tamanu Healing Balm on her and it cleared up after two days. We stopped and it cam back. So even though it's a bit pricey, we've found it's the best balm for her and use it every day. I'm now ordering my sixth jar today. Because what price for seeing your child not suffering? Review by Jo Mama / (Posted on 02/08/2017)

5/5 must have product!
This is amazing for about four years I suffered with dry, flaking skin and patches under and above my eyebrows and to my cheeks and by my nose. I tried things from doctors, E45, dove and others. Within two-three days of using the balm my face was normal for the first time in years and I can't praise it enough. I also use alot of the other products and there all amazing. And I want to say I sat there at my friends party looking through the book and did think wow prices are steep but just testing the products out I was swayed and using them now for two months I am a true convert, I'm happy to pay for a product that works, not tested on animals all natural and lasts. I got the small balm and it lasted me abt 2 months or just over and I used it twice a day on my face and for a month on my stomach. Review by TropicAddict / (Posted on 29/06/2017)
Fab for very dry skin
I originally found the smell a little off putting, its nothing like the usual lotions and potions. I have grown to like it though!
Its brilliant for dry and cracked skin after too much washing up, or the ugly cracks you get on your heels in the summer, dry scaly knee's... you get the picture! It helps where a cream just isn't enough. In minute quantities it tames eyebrows too, and is awesome for cuticles. Review by Fi / (Posted on 19/06/2017)
Can I use this on eye Eczema?
Hi, For the last year I've been suffering with Eczema breakouts around my eyes and on my neck, will this be safe to use on the skin surrounding my eyes? The GP has prescribed me steroid cream but I don't want to use this on the delicate eye skin for a prolonged amount of time.

gave me spots, blisters and a rash
sadly I tried this product to get rid of a spot (recommendation of ambassador Lesley Capstick, who I thought was a best friend until tonight), I ended up covered with spots and a rash and blisters, her manager (Helen) has also seen a photo of my skin looking very bad and suggested I stop using tropic .. after stopping using it and using hemp oil instead my spots/rash/blisters have started to heal and are less red .. I asked for a refund and this is what Lesley Capstick had to say after asking me to arrange to return the products to her (she lives 35 miles away so it will cost me either fuel or postage that I doubt I will be refunded for):

"Going forward I am afraid I will be unable and unwilling to take any more orders from you nor supply you with Tropic products. Should you wish to order Tropic products please seek an alternative ambassador. Please let me know your decision and when you wish to return the kit to me."


Thanks for your comments.

Advice on this product please.
Hi - I've recently discovered your products following a party. I'm not as yet seeing results - but it's early days (2 weeks).

I'm peri-menopausal following cancer - and have erupted in spots. Some I've had for literally months and nothing seems to work. They've also scarred my face.

At night, in order, I'm using the cleanser, toner, clear skin mask (2 times a week and more regularly on the spots) and super greens.

Would this healing balm also work? And in what order should I use it?

In the mornings I'm using the cleanser, toner and then organic elixir (also using a few sun drops to avoid using foundation).

Any advice appreciated.


You may wish to contact our customer support team on 0208 6841551 info@tropicskincare.com for tailored skincare advice, we'd be happy to discuss your skin care needs and suggest a routine to help with your concerns.

Wonderbalm ! Suffered from cold sores for years. My friend is a tropic ambassador. After a stressful week I had a cold sore on my nostril - felt like I was being stabbed up my nose. Tried some if this balm. Relieved the pain straight away. Cold sore was as scab stage when I tried it. Softened and healed if in a few days. None of the crusty cornflakes look as the scab never went dry again. Today I woke up with a tingle on my lip
And the start of another one of these nightmares. Put the balm on - not thinking it would work as it just felt like it sat in it. Now it's gone. Never came to anything! Over the moon Review by Sharon kind / (Posted on 02/06/2017)

Response from Tropic Skincare:

Hello SophieJ, thank you for your comment. We are so glad to hear that your ABC Skincare Collection is helping with your skin issues! Our award-winning Tamanu Balm has seen fantastic results on scarring, including acne scars, so we would recommend using a layer of this in the evening before bed to reduce the appearance of any acne scars you may have. Please also note that we offer a 30-day money back guarantee on all products, so if you want to try out our Tamanu Balm first you can request a full refund if it is not effective on your skin.

Tamaru balm
Hi do i use the tamanu balm on my acne before the slin revive or after or do i not use skin revive if i have acne?

Response from Tropic Skincare:

Hi Debs, thank you for your comment. For best results, we usually suggest using your Tamanu Balm at night before bed (as it is a rich, thick balm so you probably won't want to use too much during the day) and then use your ABC Skincare Collection in the morning: Smoothing Cleanser, Vitamin Toner, and finally your Skin Revive. Skin Revive is ideal for those with acne prone skin as it contains calming ingredients such as chamomile and calendula which are soothing for the skin. We hope this helps Debs! If you have any further questions please feel free to get in touch with our team on 0208 684 1551 or email info@tropicskincare.com and we'd be happy to help.

Hello Scotiagirl, thank you for getting in touch. We are sorry to hear that your skin has become inflamed during chemotherapy. Lots of people do use our Tamanu Healing Balm during chemotherapy to help with skin issues like these, and have seen some great results.

Advice please?
Hi! Is this suitable for acne and minimize large pores? Should I use the elixir oil with it or does this aggravate skin? Looking for my skin to heal and clear naturally. I've been using the ABC - cleanser, toner and moisturizer for last 2 weeks. Any advice you can provide will be helpful. : ) thank you in advance.

Response from Tropic Skin Care:

Hello Meera1, thank you for getting in touch! Our Tamanu Healing Balm is effective at reducing the appearance of acne scars and reducing redness, however if you are looking for a recommendation specifically for acne and minimising pores, we would suggest our Clear Skin Blemish-fighting Mask, which contains green clay and spirulina to draw out toxins and tighten pores. This product should be used sparingly if you have sensitive skin; a maximum of twice a week. If you are using Tamanu Healing Balm this will be an effective balm to use on areas of the skin that have been damaged by acne, and you can follow this with your Organic Elixir Oil for extra hydration if you wish. We hope this helps Meera1, and if you’d like to chat further about which products can help your skin type you can get in touch with our team on 0208 684 1551 or email info@tropicskincare.com.

This product is extraordinary and has genuinely restored a teenage girl's self-confidence.... My daughter has a darker skin tone and as a result of teenage spots and breakouts, was left with scarring and pigmentation problems. This led to the inevitable over-application of foundation to conceal her 'horrible' skin... A summer season working abroad and a chance room share with another girl changed all that. Her room buddy had been sent off to Greece with a pot of this balm and she suggested my daughter try it. The results have been extraordinary. I am a huge cynic when it comes to over-inflated claims and can spot marketing-speak a mile off but I can honestly say that she has been using this product for two years now (she applies it at night and leaves it on overnight) and her skin just looks lovely; the scarring/pigmentation marks are virtually non-existent and her confidence in her skin is restored. A truly special cream and worth every penny. Review by Mumstheword / (Posted on 07/12/2016)
Lovely balm
I love the smell of this - quite nutty and herbal - very different from other tropic smells. I bought to help with rosacea and I can't say it has really made any difference to it. But having said that I do really like the product - always useful to have a multi-purpose balm knocking around and so I am using it regularly and think it is really soothing on dry skin, bites, grazes - my children love it!

Really Amazing stuff
I got my first pot of Tamanu balm with my hostess allowance as I was really sceptical about the claims made about it and at £32 a pot I felt if it didn't work it was a wast - but I got my "free" pot and started using it twice a day libarelly on a scar I have had for over 10 years on my leg - right round the calf and front of my leg - which was a really deep dark purple colour - I have tried several creams including creams from my GP - nothing has worked - however within 2 weeks there was a marked difference and at 4 weeks I saw my podiatrist who confirmed that there was new pink skin growing where once there was only scar tissue before!! I'm now 7 weeks in with a markedly reduced scar and onto my second purchased at full price jar - I absolutely could not recommend Tamanu Balm highly enough! Every home should have a pot!! I would only say for some things (spots - dry skin etc) it works almost instantly for other things you NEED to give it time to work but work it does - honestly!!! Just keep applying it xx Review by Christine Robinson / (Posted on 01/09/2016)
Don't like the smell
I bought this for use on scars as it says it good for that but I don't like the smell of it so I couldn't tell you if it works or not the smell is really off putting and therefore a waste of my money and I bought the big pot as thought it would be nice and work :( unhappy customer.

Amazing on burn
I burnt my wrist when cooking and applied the Tamanu healing balm straight after. 3 days later the burn has virtually healed and wasn't even painful to touch after the second application. I tried it on insect bites but it didn't seem to make a difference unfortunately. Review by Beavs1 / (Posted on 02/06/2016)

Not good on scars
I have been using this in my scars and stretch marks, was told it was good for this but I have used a whole pot in 7 days and still look the same. I have read the reviews and people saying it's good for other skin problems but it's not good on scars. I wouldn't buy again. You don't get a lot in the pot fir your money.

Incredible. If you only buy one thing buy this
Incredible product. A must have. It helps bites, stings, rashes, spots and everything else. I have used Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream for years and always loved it. Amazingly this is even better. Took on holiday and my mosquito bites were healed in 3 days with no tell tale scar. Normally my skin would be marked for weeks. Review by Michaela / (Posted on 25/02/2016)

I have contact dermatitis inbetween my finger.. used this twice a day and within 3 days all rhe flakey skin had gone and i was left with slight reddening. Im sure in a few days this will disappear to with continued use. I have also bought one as a gift and i am hoping she finds it as good as me.plus i have hardly used any... this tub will last ages as you dont need to use much. Review by Rea / (Posted on 02/02/2016)

This really works ...best ever
I've had eczema on my hands for years and have tried everything to cure it. My docs have had to increase the steroid cream I use to very high and I hate to use steroids. However up until tamanu balm nothing else has come close to working. Now all I use is tamanu and I've ditched the steroids completely. Using tamanu my eczema is now the best it's been for ever...in fact you can hardly see it at all.....this is after only 3.5 weeks of daily use. Amazing,..can't stop singing its praises, Review by Susiesue / (Posted on 05/09/2015)

This is a wonderful product with enless uses. It has restored my horrid dry, cracked hands and worked wonders on my fathers too - we are both addicted. I've recommended it to work collegues who are now converts! Give it a go! Review by Sammie / (Posted on 11/03/2015)
Amazing product
This balm is simply amazing! After only a week of using it on a patch of eczema I have on my fingers and hand, it has reduced the redness and dryness and it feels brilliant! The balm has a strange smell which is almost medicinal but don't let that put you off. This is a miracle cream in my books! Review by Happy customer / (Posted on 01/03/2015)
Excellent product, it works!
For months I have suffered from cracked skin at the corners of my mouth, despite a couple of visit to my GP nothing touched it. My daughter gave me a sample from her purchase to try and within 3 days almost 100% better! Wonderful stuff Review by Birdybooks / (Posted on 16/02/2015)

Fantastic. If you wish a product for those SOS moments, I suggest this one. It is beautifully packaged and it is an indulgent balm/treatment for unbalanced skin and I would also describe it as a spa in a jar. Review by cherish / (Posted on 03/12/2014)
It works!
I have several skin allergies and this was recommended to me by a tropic Ambassador called Sharon at a Tropic Party as she realised I was cautious about what to use. She showed me other people who'd used it with great results and I have to say it has worked wonders. Thank you Tropic :D Review by Geekgirl / (Posted on 11/05/2014)
