UK Distributor Motion Junkies recently sent me a bag of goodies from the company Joshua Tree Skin Care; one of the products they supply. With cycling salve, climbing balm, lip balm and a winter stick for exposed faces Joshua Tree provide some awesome products for the outdoor fanatic; I especially liked the climbing balm.
The climbing and cycling salves come in a range of sizes in round containers and are very easy to apply. After several long climbing sessions I used the balm and found my fingers a lot better off than normal the following day; less dry skin, less sore red marks on my joints and the balm to thank.
The lovely mint tasting lip balm has also proved useful; Newcastle is freezing at this time of year and with the wind only adding to this chill my lips have been in need of the balm; as with the products mentioned above this has worked great, an added advantage is it's SPF 18+ rating for when the Sun dares to show its face. As the lip balm works for your lips the winter stick provides a full facial of skin care in the cold; this will be perfect for skiing or winter mountaineering, easily fitting in to a pocket - it's tiny!
Motion Junkies were extremely efficient in getting these products too me and as a growing company look very promising; skin care outdoors is very important in my opinion, if you don't stay healthy your hands, face, etc will become sore and you won't want to be in the outdoors or on the crag - keep your skin healthy and you'll keep going; I think these JTree products will help you out so I'd urge you to give them a go.
