*MAGIC* I use this cream for everything! I've used it as a diaper cream, rash cream, acne treatment and moisturizer. It heals and soothes wonderfully.
I use this under my regular spf moisturizer during the day and under my night cream. I have such dry skin, and this helps keep it moisturized and it keeps the blemishes away, as well. A little goes a long way!
It's great for sooting & healing dermatitis & eczema. I keep one in my bathroom, one in each of my sons rooms and one in my purse.

this product is AMAZING. I have been using this cream since my 8th grade year, and I keep coming back to this product. Especially during the winter days when the weather was extremely cold with harsh winds blowing all over and hell breaking loose, this was what saved my skin at the end of the day. It leaves your skin looking dewy, but not like you're "oiling" up during the day. Even though I naturally have good skin, most of my classmates commented on how I had such dewy, clean skin *smirk* *shhh its the calendula cream*
I found that dabbing on a medium sized amount to my palms and patting it on my skin really helped too especially during the summer :)
-and just in case for other to reference: i have combination skin. mild amount of acne/oily in my t zone area, and dry skin on my forehead/cheeks :)

I liked this b/c it clears up patches of irritated skin on me & my 6 yr old daughter pretty fast. We have sensitive skin, and haven't had a problem. I agree w/others who said the scent is kinda strong. It's also a little pricey for the amount you get, but I can get it easily at more than one store in my area, which is a plus.

I use this in the winter whenever I have really dry patches of alligator skin on my legs or the backs of my hands. (Usually when I have not been good about applying body lotion on a daily basis.) This sinks right into the skin and feels soothing. If they made this unscented, it would be my ideal winter skin cream. It smells strongly of lavender, which I am not really opposed to, but the scent lingers until you wash it off.

Nice cream to use when I am suffering an itchy skin. I tried using it for acne but it was a no go. Actually broke me out even more with prolonged usage. But for itchy bug bites and allergic reactions, this is tops.

I got some samples from a friend of mine who is a lover of CB products. I was skeptical of it at first as i heard it has lots of essential oil and i personally hate the smell of these oil... they just give me headache! But then to my amaze.. this cream dosent smells bad at all! I was surprised! It has some mild essential oil smell n smells great! My girl seems to love it as well (she keeps sniffing the container) and whenever she sees me taking out the cream, she will come to me and sit in front of me waiting for me to apply it onto her! She is 18mths old now BTW. It makes her skin very smooth and felt well moisturized.. After a few tries, ive decided to purchase the full size of this!
This winter, my hands are super duper dry and cracked! Its so painful whenever it touches water and when i put on any hand cream.. It just stings me so bad! My hands look so red at the knuckles and fingers..my sister said it looks like ezema!! Then my sister suggested that i try this so i did and just after 1 application (overnight), the redness is totally gOne!!! Totally gone! By the way, it didnt sting at all when i applied too!! Totally sold! Up another lipee!!

This stuff is beyond amazing! My daughter had a very dry, itching, flaky scalp. After the first application her scalp improved dramatically. Second application, her scalp healed completely. No more itchy, dry, flaky, scalp. I highly recommend this product!

I experienced a horrible perioral-dermatitis flare-up a couple of days ago, and after doing a little research, decided to give this product a try. I am on day-three with this cream, and so far it really is working for me. I dont find the fragrance to be very strong, and it only stung a tiny bit when used over broken skin. Over all, the cream is very soothing, and my rash is healing more quickly than when using diaper rash cream or other prescribed medication. It is not very moisturizing when used alone so I apply it over a layer of jojoba oil. I have acne-prone skin, but this does not seem to clog my pores.

I bought this based on reviews from their website and am thrilled! I used this about 4 times on a disgusting patch of perioral dermatitis on my chin that I have had for months. I have been to the derm and had been using prescription products without any success until I bought this. After a handful of times using this my perioral dermatitis is almost cleared up!! I would certainly recommend this for anyone with sensitive or eczema prone skin!

I wanted to use this as a face cream. I opened it up, got one whiff of the "essential oil blend" and put just a little on the side of my face. It was SOOOO STRONG. I rinsed with water right away. I took a shower and wash my face and it still feels hot. I just couldn't stand the smell of the oils. I think they irritated my skin as well. If you're using this for body eczema or something it might be fine but just as a face cream not for me!

i bought this to use on my face after a serious reaction to a slew of dermalogica products. It *is* very soothing, but there are still irritating fragrances in it (lavender oil, for instance) and my skin is sooooo sensitive that I just have to stick with fragrance free, period. Plus, if you have any ragweed allergies, calendula is in the same family and can cause inflammation. That being said, this is still a soothing lotion and I like to use it on my hands when they are super dry. It puts a protective film on the skin. I can see how this would work well as a diaper cream or rash cream on anywhere but the face, soI will use the rest of the pot (wish it were in a sanitary tube) for these purposes, but will not buy again for personal use.

Bought this to try on perioral dermatitis flare up because it is advertised as recomended for this, eczema and other skin sensitivities. Did not help my perioral dermatitis but did not make it any worse. Found Dr. Hauschka's Quince Day cream much better at helping with perioral dermatitis. Have also tried using as a hand and foot cream but it does not adequately moisturize my dry skin. Medicinal smell and comes in a small tub which I think is not the best way to package products for skin conditions that require you to be super vigilant about cleanliness.

I bought this for my daughter when she had a stubborn patch of eczema that wouldn't clear up, coupled with an equally stubborn heat rash. I tried seemingly everything - to no avail. I started using the CB Calendula Cream twice a day and by day 7, the rashes had almost completely cleared up!
This has a nice, lavender'ish fragrance. It is light and fluffy - as opposed to being heavy and greasy. It absorbs well, and seems to work really well when applied to damp skin.
I think I have found my daughters HG moisturizer! I only wish it came in a larger jar.
