  • Totally Delightful and Effective

    Sophia H. April 08, 2021

    I’m on my third jar of this Balm and it’s just so fabulous. It’s light but effective and smells wonderful. My skin definitely looks more evenly toned and plump when I use it.

  • Works great

    Thogan January 04, 2021

    I really like this repair balm. My skin is so dry from the cold Boston winter. This really helps and makes my skin feel soft.

  • 2nd time buying

    Laura C. December 06, 2020

    I have very sensitive and dry skin. TI also spend a lot of time outdoors in cold weather. Tammy Fender products work very well for my skin type. I have purchased this balm before and am purchasing again as it has been a life saver in providing much needed hydration to my skin. I use it both as a night cream and sometimes as my base during the day prior to applying suncreen/moisturizer. I recently purchased the Tammy Fender Serum and might end up liking that more than the balm, but overall very happy with Tammy Fender products.

  • No words to describe how amazing this is.

    Tamara W. March 05, 2020

    I walked in here last week for a tester and upon using it for just 2 nights could NOT BELIEVE how incredible this cream is. I do not ever write product reviews (not Amazon, not Follain, NOTHING) but every female and man needs to know that this cream is the jam. I have had dry skin this #BostonWinter2020 and felt pain when smiling and my skin was flaking from dryness training for a half marathon outside. I put this on at night and feel like I can retire all make up, all creams, and just live in this 130 facial in a bottle. BEST GUILTY PLEASURE.

  • calming and nourishing

    Sarah D. March 01, 2019

    This moisture is a savior for winter skin! After a day on the slopes when skin is wind-burned and chapped, this moisturizer heals the skin from the elements, and I love putting it on my face!

  • Perfect

    Aleksandra I. February 20, 2019

    Perfect cream for night , a little bit too heavy for me for the day. It is relaxing, no skin reactions.

  • Fabulous

    Gabriela P. December 15, 2018

    I have just started transitioning to natural products and had very low expectations as I thought we I needed chemicals to get results. I love this cream. Feels a little jelly like, but still creamy. My face absorbs it quickly. I wake up with a soft, fresh face. Oh, and my normally clogged pores love it.

  • Fabulous moisture

    Ginny S. December 10, 2018

    After using this for 4 years, it is the best moisturizer around!

  • Game Changer

    Emily November 20, 2018

    WORTH THE PRICE. I’ve been using each morning and night and can see a huge difference in my skin. My skin was really red and dry before (dead of winter in New England) and is now glowing. I used to never leave the house without makeup and for the first time, finally feel like my skin is perfect with no need to cover it up. It absorbs quickly but still feels rich. Works well under makeup and smells amazing.

  • Wake up with noticeably healed skin!

    Ellyana M. November 09, 2018

    I love, love, love using this balm as my overnight treatment. It leaves my skin so hydrated but also firm and has visibly lightened my acne scars in less than a week! A little goes a very long way so it is worth the price, should last you a solid 4 months. I hope Tammy Fender never stops making this treatment! The formula is magical.

  • Bliss

    Katia L. November 07, 2018

    I’m officially obsessed with this product. I’ve never been tied to any one skin care line- preferring to try new creams in search of the one…. I have to say that I will most likely be a lifetime user of Tammy Fender products. This cream is moisturizing yet not greasy. My skin soaks it up and remains soft throughout the day. The smell is so pleasant and subtle… it’s an all around home run of a product.

  • So pricey

    Shannon F. October 19, 2018

    For the price, I would choose something else next time.

  • I wake up with glowing skin

    Jenna K. October 07, 2018

    I’ve always struggled to find a night cream that really makes a difference overnight but this one works miracles. It feels so soothing when you put it on and you don’t need a lot per use which makes it worth the price. In just one use I noticed a difference and I wake up with glowing, hydrated skin. It helps with any redness or dark spots and my skin just feels amazing.

  • Deep Moisturizing

    Katherine H. September 18, 2018

    I really love the texture and smell. Feels very luxurious when you apply it. Super hydrating without being too much.

  • Favorite product in the store!

    Caroline N. August 29, 2018

    I have dry, sensitive skin and this product has kept my skin hydrated like no other product I have experienced. I added toning my skin with the Tammy Fender Rose Water which has helped me absorb the moisture deeper in my skin. People say I am glowing now!


    Nathalia A. May 05, 2018

    I have been using this cream for a few months now and what a difference! My skin is hydrated and soft. I use this mostly at night but sometimes during the day too. This cream helped me through some terrible dry skin over the winter. And it smells wonderful too!

  • Meh. Good and bad.

    Heather J. March 28, 2018

    The glorious thing was that this didn’t make my sensitive acne prone skin break out! That can be rare. Unfortunately though, this didn’t help the flaky, scaly patches on my nose and chin and it doesn’t seem to be that moisturizing. I like it and will use it until it’s gone, but I won’t repurchase it.

  • KR

    Mary K. March 26, 2018

    Just beginning to use the Repair Balm. So far so good.

  • Great

    Sandy O. March 12, 2018

    Great moisturizer and love the scent!

  • Fresh feeling :)

    Michelle G. January 11, 2018

    This is the best I have used, I feel like my face looks dewy and smells clean and fresh…worth the investment

  • Great Moisturizer

    Lauren Y. September 28, 2017

    This moisturizer is great because it is light but gives my dry skin the moisture it needs.

  • feels soothing and calming

    Tara S. September 28, 2017

    light but feels rich at the same time.

  • Love the Tammy Fender Intensive Repair Balm!

    Ruthie W. September 28, 2017

    My favorite moisturizer to date. Love it!

  • Super hydrating and evens out skin tone

    Kristin N. April 06, 2016

    On Friday when I stopped in Follain my skin was so dry, flakey and irritated especially on my cheeks and above my lips. Jeannie recommended this cream right away and two days later my ski was completely different! My skin looks and feels hydrated, no dry patches or redness. I have tried so many different brands and nothing compares to the recovery cream. Thanks for the great recommendation Jeannie!

  • Finally a Moisturizer that REALLY works!

    Klo36 February 18, 2016

    I reluctantly tried the Intensive Repair Balm after purchasing the Spontaneous Recovery Cream only to find out $165 later, it really wasn’t the right fit for me. I have incredibly dry skin (diagnosed with ichthyosis vulgaris) and have been searching for nearly a year for a safe face moisturizer that would prevent my skin from drying out and flaking. I purchased Tammy Fender’s Anti-Aging Sampler Kit which included the Intensive Repair Balm, and couldn’t believe how well it worked. It healed dry patches, reduced redness, and helped my skin retain moisture while spending days outside skiing. I use this cream with the Quintessential Serum and although it’s quite a pricey pair, they work incredibly well for me. I only need a tiny bit of this cream to protect and moisturize my skin all day long. This jar will likely last me somewhere between 6-8 weeks (less in Winter and more in Summer), so I do feel it’s worth the price. I would highly recommend trying all 3 of Tammy Fender’s moisturizers to find the best fit for you– I tried them all and found each one offered something different and one is likely to work for you too!

  • Healthy Obsession

    Carolyn K. January 21, 2016

    It actually feels like it’s healing. It absorbs quickly and a little goes a long way. I’m addicted and I can see my skin improving. Love.

  • a healing wonder

    Alyse S. August 23, 2015

    This cream is what my skin craves when it’s truly parched and in need of serious rescue. While I think that the Tammy Fender Antioxidant Creme is better fit for me on a daily basis, this cream works wonders when I’m really dry or my skin needs a little bit of extra oomph. We had a dry heat wave come through DC for a few weeks this summer and my skin is not at all accustomed to dry heat. No matter what I did my skin was red, dry, and sensitive to the touch. This cream (along with May Lindstrom’s Blue Cocoon) got me through the worst of the dry heat with flying colors. It’s so thick and protective but it still sinks in nicely although I do notice that my skin is a little stickier to the touch after this cream compared to the results from the Antioxidant Creme.

    What makes this so special is it’s ability to heal the skin quickly. I have had two small patches of dry, itchy skin on my shins that have been there for months. I have tried everything on them — various lotions, creams, balms, and oils — and nothing was working. Desperate to find a way to stop the itching and soothe my skin, I used a small amount of Intensive Repair Balm on each spot and immediately the itch was gone. The skin feels softer and less irritable. If it can do that for my legs, I know this is going to be a lifesaver for my face in the winter.

  • Great all around

    Janeen M. April 09, 2015

    I actually found that the tiny capillaries you could see around my nose disappeared. Small dark spots looked better also. It is a great moisturizer but not as moisturizing as the luxurious spontaneous recovery cream. However, I think it may be the best overall moisturizer. It has really changed my skin!!!!

  • Amazing, moisturizing cream for morning and night.

    Snow March 01, 2015

    Love this moisturizer. It is thicker than most, but absorbs in easily. Subtle fragrance and a great way to start and end the day. It is also a great protective cream for the winter wind and cold.

  • Dreamy creamy!!

    Anthy February 23, 2015

    Wonderful product, espcially this time of year. While it moisturizes and smells beautifully, I also feel that it protects my face from the extreme cold and wind. My skin is dry, sundamaged and mature and it seems to be minimizing my ‘crows feet’. This is another great recommendation by the Follain team in Nantucket. I can’t wait to try the rest of the Tammy Fender lineup.


    C G. February 22, 2015

    It was a shock to me that my normally oil-prone skin should develop really flaky-dry patches thanks to menopause; enter stage right (!) Tammy Fender from Follain, and end of show of dryness! This rich cream ‘s ingredients are exceptional and has not just performed magic on patches, but feels great on the rest of my face too. I have been using it at night to let it work undisturbed, and then waking up to rejuvenated skin and reduced ‘puppet’ lines around my mouth. Very happy and so pleased to have had this recommended to me at Follain! (Great to see ‘assistants’ with such knowledge and pride in their products!)

  • Love, love, love

    Diane February 21, 2015

    I started using Tammy Fender over a year ago and I love it. It’s rich, hydrating and perfect for my mature, sun damaged skin. I love it and I have both my 20 something daughters using it.
