For $10, today's side deal gets you a jar of Combat-Ready Balm from Skincando, a $25 value. After purchasing the two-ounce jar, you can either pick it up in person at The Still Point or pay an additional $5.50 to have it delivered to your door or M1A1 Abrams top hatch.
Unlike your special lady's cucumber-melon rain-sprinkle lotion, the Combat-Ready Balm soothes razor burn and the effects of eczema and psoriasis, removes the itchiness from bug bites and scratches, and relieves sunburned, dry, or irritated skin. The balm has even seen combat while serving the dermal needs of American troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. Skincando products, with their no-frills packaging and intense bold labels, not only mean business, they mean war.
Skincando creator Sara Damelio knows how to naturally protect and heal even the most under-sieged skin. After eight years researching the best sootheformula, she makes the combat-ready schmear in her own apartment with the help of a feisty, ready-for-anything KitchenAid R2-Mix2 mixer. Her company also uses recycled and biodegradable packaging and cleans its equipment with non-toxic products. You can be sure you're treating your skin with the superior quality that comes from small batches, organic ingredients, and the entrepreneurial drive to be the best.
While there are few customer reviews of Skincando's Combat-Ready Balm, the company has generated a good deal of local press, including features by the Washington Post, Washington Times, uncrate, and DailyCandy:
- Initially created for U.S. soldiers fighting in Iraq, this balm is perfect for patching up minor injuries and healing insect bites, razor burn, and plain old dry skin. – uncrate
- Sgt. Surunis says a jar of Combat-Ready Balm was left for him by the Marine he replaced."I fell in love with it, and wanted to help get it to other people. It really sped up the healing," he says. – Stephanie Green, Washington Times
