Smell (Irrelevant to effects)
The smell of the Skin Repair salve reminded us of the smell you get when walking into a high-end spa—natural, soothing, and floral. The Skin Repair from Ambary Gardens smells much more calming and rejuvenating than their Deep Rub or Muscle Recovery. After opening the jar, your nostrils will get hit the familiar scents of clary sage, bergamot, geranium, jasmine, and ylang-ylang.
The consistency of this product is soft and buttery. The salve has a gentle creaminess to it and turns oily as you rub it in. It’s easy to apply and feels soothing as soon as it begins melting into your skin. Instead of completely entering the skin though it feels as though a protective layer remains on the skin level. The rub itself is off-white in color and turns clear as you apply it. The consistency of the Skin Repair is less grainy than the Deep Rub or Muscle Recovery.
Effects (Onset, Duration, Intensity)
The effects become apparent quickly as your skin begins to soften, soothe, and rehydrate immediately after application. We applied to rough skin as well as old scars and found that the Skin Repair effects can begin to be felt within 1 to 10 minutes. The duration depended on where the rub was applied and what the ailment was, but overall, it lasted several hours. It is worth noting that this salve does not produce an icy/hot sensation.
Best Used For
In our experience, the Skin Repair works best on dry, damaged, or irritated skin—especially eczema. Whether you live in an arid climate or have some scarring to heal—this salve will do the trick. The CBD in the Skin Repair helps moisturize and breathe life back into your skin—say goodbye to cracked heels. We’ve actually completely replaced our standard Lubriderm lotion with the Skin Repair salve. Alternatively, if you’re looking to relieve joint pain and arthritis, we recommend the Deep Rub from Ambary Gardens while their Muscle Recovery is best for sore muscles.
Best used with (Complimentary Product)
This is a localized product, meaning it will only provide relief to the area that it was applied. That said, we recommend combining this product with the Full Spectrum Daily Tinctures or Soft Gels for systemic relief. These products will help further restore equilibrium in your body from the inside out. For instantaneous, full-body relief, we suggest pairing this product with the 99% CBD Isolate or the pre-filled CBD Vaporizer Cartridges from Ambary Gardens.
