So if you’re a CrossFitter or rock climber, you’ve probably heard of climbOn (for those of you that haven’t, it’s a skin repair balm/cream that you generally apply to your hands when they get torn up during a workout or climb). Well, did you know that the same company behind climbOn, SKINourishment, also has a line of products designed specifically for CrossFitters?? Me neither until a couple of weeks ago!
I was fortunate enough to get to try two of the products: the crossFIXE Hands Tube (similar to climbOn), and the crossFIXE Muscle Paste. The great thing about all of SKINourishment’s products is that they’re made from natural and food-grade ingredients! That means nothing synthetic and nothing altered from it’s natural form; it’s so pure that you could it eat! If you can’t eat it, why would you want to put it on your skin? Your skin absorbs EVERYTHING so what you put on it matters.
I haven’t had the chance to put the crossFIXE Hands Tube to use since I haven’t torn up my hands recently (thank goodness!) However, I have definitely put the Muscle Paste to use since I’m almost always sore somewhere!
I’ve gotta say, I was kind of skeptical… how could applying this balm to my skin help my muscles feel better? Well, apparently the ingredients work with your body’s natural cortisol to help soothe discomfort and increase circulation in the area. And it works! I won’t say that it will work for every single person out there or that it will alleviate 100% of your pain, but it definitely makes a difference. Every time I’ve used it I’ve felt relief almost immediately. No joke. And you can even use it for things like arthritis or headaches!
So I’m happy to say that the friendly folks at SKINourishment would like to send one lucky person a jar of crossFIXE muscle paste for free! Trust me, it’s worth trying. And you don’t even have to CrossFit to find a use for it, so anyone and everyone should enter the giveaway below!
