Reviewer: Owain, Newbury  

I am not a climber but my brother is...

For the past few years I have suffered from very dry and sore patches and cracks on some of my fingers that at times have become so painful that I have resorted to supergluing them.

I have tried literally tens of different creams including steroids but none of them have have worked very well. My brother suggested that I try some of his ClimbOn cream, that he used after climbing, to see if it would help. I have been amazed with the results. There was a massive, noticeable improvement within the first few days that has got progressively better since.

I was so impressed that I went online and bought a tin and I have been recommending it to other people I know who have dry skin.

Plus Points:

Amazing skin repair and moisture retention

Economical- a small amount goes a long way

Not greasy or gunky

Minus Points:

If I had to give any minus point it would only be the price - but as it works so well and and you do not need to use much in each application, it offers very good value and I'm not really complaining. I bought a small tin as I wanted to carry it in my pocket. I will be buying a big one next time and I will decant some in to the smaller tin for portability.

I was initially sceptical about how useful 'Climb On Balm' would be, but I have been pleasantly surprised by its effectiveness in rejuvenating my skin overnight, when climbing on consecutive days. The balm itself hasn't crumbled in the pot or melted in high temperatures, and despite trying, I still haven't used up the smaller size. 4 only because it's expensive, but I would buy again.

This is a great to use balm in a block. No messy creams to sqidge everywhere. Comes in a handy little tin to protect the block so making it easy to pop in the top of your rucksack.

Works really well on dry cracked fingers without stinging. Melts in with little rubbing and smells nice too!

I bought this to help with my hands from using the pull up bar and weights at CrossFit, it was recommended by 2 people at my gym. Broken skin is quickly healed using this balm and it's small enough to carry around in your pocket or bag, I have also been told it lasts ages so well worth the money.

I use this for my hands after climbing and it does a very good job of repairing the outermost layers of skin without softening my hands. It also has a pleasant, subtle smell to it.

The only downside is it is rather expensive, especially when compared to the US price (basically the same but in dollars).

Reviewer: David , Kingston upon Thames  

The skin on my fingers dries out and cracks after a long session on the climbing wall; Climb On is the best "post climb" treatment I've come across. It's pretty greasy at first, but dries up in a few minutes.

Facewest price was good, (free) postage was quick - and my hands love it; it also seems to work well on light burns or other skin irritation

Reviewer: Graham , Threemilestone  

Excellent do it all balm. I travel light around the world trekking the balm repairs cuts, bites and rashes. It comes in a small tin which fits nicely into my 1st aid kit. As the balm is solid it doesn't melt in hot weather conditions.

Reviewer: Mike ,  

I have been using Climb On Balm for skin repair to my hands. I mainly use it for my finger tips because of the damage that is caused to the from climbing, working as an outdoor pursuits instructor. Climb On Balm is the best product I have found for repairing splits in my finger tips. It also seems to act as a barrier cream which means that you can- climb on! The only word of warning I would give to users of this product, is not to apply it just before climbing on small polished holds or campus rails. However Climb On Balm is absorbed fairly quickly and if rubbed in well an hour or so before climbing seems fine. I also like the fact that Climb On Balm is made from all natural ingredients from bees wax to essential oils. I would recommend this product to anyone who is regularly trashing their skin!

Well as Facewest must know by the large number of orders for Climb On Balm that I place, It works ! Take my word for it. I have used all other brands, some good some not so good, but Climb On Balm is best by far. Wave good bye to dry, split hands and fingers. Fast to work with great results.

Reviewer: Theoni Photopoulou, St Andrews  

I get very dry hands from climbing and the general weathering they receive from living in Scotland. Climb On Balm is pretty much the only thing that is effective in treating it. It smells lovely and contains no synthetic chemicals. I really like the fact it is in solid form, though I wonder how it would behave at higher temperatures. It might seem like a pricey product for your hands, but if you get dry skin and it bothers you, it is well worth it. I'm on my second bar.
