I bought a jar of this balm for a two week surf vacation to Nicaragua. After day one on my board, I of course started getting the classic surf rash on my ribs. This goop soothed it and made it disappear by morning. From that point on I was a habitual gooper. Fast forward 4 days. Just as I became reliant on this miracle balm for everything, the worst thing imaginable happened. My camera bag and small day pack were stolen, and inside way this product. Needless to say, the most disappointing loss was my goop. From then on I had to toughen up and deal with any cut, rash or burn that came my way, and they were plentiful.
Bottom line: This product works. Hold it close and don't let it get stolen.
