Auntieflo Wed 02-Oct-19 18:00:09

Also, mine arrived today, thank you.
Do we have to write a review, and to whom please?

travelsafar Thu 03-Oct-19 08:58:09

Mine arrived too,. Please can we be reminded what we have to do, thanks.

Mine has now arrived too. I’ve dug out the original email from GN regarding the test, and the instructions are:

Once you have received the lotion, you will have around 2 weeks to test the product, and then give your feedback - we will be in touch nearer the time with details of this.

Mine has arrived too - thank you. I've been using it and am ready to review, but do I post it on here or is there some specific form to complete?

Reaching for it every day and feeling the benefits. My OH is bald and has purloined some for the top of his head. It's so smooth, gives me some relief from itching back and love that it doesn't give off any odour.

Did they come in a brown jiffy bag with Uxbridge post code as I received an envelope the other day and it was empty, and not expecting any other packages.

Nortsat46 Fri 04-Oct-19 13:46:43

Mine arrived too.
PinkSweetPea, it did come in a brown Jiffy bag. Mine was also unsealed and open but fortunately the lotion was still inside the package.
It will be interesting to see how it works.

PinkSweetPea Fri 04-Oct-19 19:11:41

Nortsat46 Looks like mine fell out then as only a empty jiffy bag, Been waiting ages for it too, oh well

joysutty Fri 04-Oct-19 19:14:28

Only just received this product today. I will start to use it tonight in my night time regime. I have been using a lotion called Diprobase (with pump) each night on my dry arms and legs for over a year, so will start with this new lotion. And report back soon.

Seakay Fri 04-Oct-19 20:14:25

Mine has arrived and I'm enjoying using it - I assume that the survey will be emailed in a week or so and then we are supposed to do an Amazon review after that?

blueberry1 Sat 05-Oct-19 11:05:48

I received mine on Tuesday and have been using it twice daily.I think we will receive a survey after a couple of weeks.

Bettysbugs Sat 05-Oct-19 12:26:13

I entered .got an email stating i was lucky to be chosen and there would be something sent out ..that was weeks ago and still didn’t receive anything ..

Glosgran Sat 05-Oct-19 20:56:17

Mine arrived a few days ago and I have been using it. It leaves my skin feeling soft and silky. So far, so good. Wondering how we'll know when they want our feedback.

Harris27 Sat 05-Oct-19 21:24:15

Where is the feedback survey for this product as I have received this?

Harris27 Sat 05-Oct-19 21:25:41

Sorry just read the above posts.

nettyandmasey Mon 07-Oct-19 14:31:52

I have put it on my left hand side and my normal lotion on the right so I can compare the two!

Pittcity Mon 07-Oct-19 15:32:54

What a good idea nettyandmasey.

cathisherwood Tue 08-Oct-19 08:51:17

after receiving the empty envelope last week I have now got a bottle delivered in indestructible packaging - thanks gransnet for sorting that

NanaPlenty Tue 08-Oct-19 09:54:22

I don’t seem to have had any communication about filling in a survey?

Esspee Wed 09-Oct-19 15:23:15

When I applied many months ago I was going crazy with an intensely itchy rash under my breasts. Tried everything the doctor prescribed to no effect but after months of discomfort I discovered a prickly heat talcum powder which is a little like Vicks but a talc. Within a minute of dusting it on your skin feels chilled. Worked like a charm.
First impression of Balneum is that it is thankfully perfume and odour free, good coverage but leaves a greasy film which I dislike.

PinkSweetPea Fri 11-Oct-19 19:19:17

cathisherwood - I received an empty jiffy bag too, most disappointed. I have now e mailed them so hoping I will receive a sample. Glad you got yours in the end.
