WHAT YOU GET: (1) tube Grandma Minnie’s The Big, Brave Boo-Boo Balm
NET WEIGHT: 8g
INGREDIENTS: Petrolatum, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Glyceryl Laurate.
On wounds and lesions: With clean, sanitized hands, apply a small amount on fingertips or a clean Q-tip and place on affected area three times each day (or as often as needed). For very painful lesions, do not rub Boo-Boo Balm in. Instead, dab generous amounts of Boo-Boo Balm gingerly over affected area without spreading. When lesion is less painful, spread Boo-Boo Balm over area. Your doctor may tell you to cover the area with a dressing after you have applied this ointment. Get medical assistance if no improvement is seen in 24 hours or immediately if signs of infection occur.
When performing First Aid: Rub Grandma Minnie’s Kid Gloves disinfectant over your hands. Kid Gloves can be used directly on wound but will sting! Lessen the Ouch factor by cleaning lesion with Grandma Minnie’s Oil’s Well Nurturing Do-It-Oil, following it with The Big, Brave Boo-Boo Balm. Bandage if needed. Get medical help if there is no improvement within 24 hours or immediately if signs of infection appear.
What do we love about homegrown label VMV? They’re the only beauty brand with a rating system that grades a product’s safety based on the number of allergens it does NOT contain. In fact, VMV’s skincare and makeup are free of most (if not ALL) 76 allergens as listed by the North American Contact Dermatitis Group + European Surveillance System on Contact Allergies. From its sunscreens to its concealers, VMV’s range is free of fragrance, dye, phthalate, paraben, preservatives, coca-surfactant, SLES, and SLS. All products are formulated to be non-comedogenic, non-drying, pH-adjusted, and suitable for all skin types. What’s NOT to love?
This is always in my purse because it is such a multi tasker: lip balm, salve for minor scratches, moisturises dry patches. It is pricey and the bigger pot is more worth it for PhP/gm. However, I am still stocking up on this because it is so convenient for travel and it really does work.about 1 month ago
I used this boo boo balm for my baby as she have lots of insect bites on her knees to toes. I rushed to sephoraph and ordered this. I love the formulation of this and yeah its really effective. But too pricey, compare to desitin which gives the same effect too. Its so small.almost 2 years ago
My toddler is very prone to insect bites and of course she likes to scratch it. I have tried a lot of anti itch products but this is the one that only works. It works well and unlike calamine lotions it doesn't need to dry out (it just gets on her clothes TBH). And unlike other products, my daughter approves this as well; she's the one who ask me to apply it to her bites and boo boos. I first got the pot version and love that it now comes in a handier tube which makes it perfect for travelling.almost 2 years ago
I heard and read great reviews over the boo-boo balm from Vmv so, I got this just to try it out. I love this soooo much! It might be a little pricey for the amount but you seriously just need a small amount to soothe your skin and the packaging is super handy and more sanitary compared to the pot version.over 2 years ago
One of my favorite multipurpose product! It's called the Boo-boo balm because it can fix a lot of booboos! I have alot of uses for it - like soothing irritated skin, wounds, cuts, other skin problems, moisturize lips and other sensitive areas,. I even use it to set my eyebrows in place so they don't appear unruly. I'm sure I have other uses for it. It's just a product I can't live without :)over 2 years ago
I use this when my daughter's skin asthma flares up. It provides some relief from itchiness. It doesn't heal the rashes though.almost 3 years ago
