Columbia Skincare: First Aid for Sensitive Skin

Columbia Skincare has been creating high quality products with real benefits for 144 years. All of their products are developed to provide curative results using the best ingredients. The Antiseptic Powder is a medicated powder that's perfect for sensitive skin.

*Disclaimer: This product was sent to See, Shop, Love! in exchange for an honest review.

The Columbia Antiseptic Powder is produced in the exact same way it was originally done over 100 years ago! Clearly their formula and process works. It's fragrance free, allergy tested, and cruelty-free as well (PETA-verified).

The powder promotes "the natural healing of irritated skin." I wanted to give it a try because I have always had sensitive skin and have especially had issues with eczema since childhood. It can be used for all sorts of ailments, from diaper rash to insect bites to sunburn. I used it on my feet after working out because, well, feet get gross and sweaty after a workout! It felt soothing on my skin and I only needed a small amount to zap up excess moisture and leave my skin feeling comfortable and dry.

The active ingredient isn't visible in the photo above due to glare from my lighting, but it contains zinc oxide as a skin protectant. The inactive ingredients are talc, boric acid, and carbolic acid (phenol). As you can see, it's a very simple mixture that can be used for a wide variety of conditions.
Bottom Line: I'm impressed with the Columbia Skincare Antiseptic Powder, especially because it's been around for so long and is still proven effective. It didn't irritate my skin in the least and I look forward to using it for things like bug bites once the nice weather returns!
