First, this has been a great part of my daily skincare. I have very sensitive breakout-prone skin. When it gets cold and dry my skin really needs some extra help and this works great as a pre-treatment before my moisturizer. BUT...after I read about all the things people have used this for, my son was complaining about a sore on the corner of his mouth that just wouldn’t heal. I have applied this ONE time before bed and it’s almost gone now. Nothing else has helped but within a day or two it’s almost completely healed!
Second Skin | HEALING SERUM
SECOND SKIN was first developed for a client with tinea versicolor and has since been used to heal radiation dermatitis, heat burns, eczema and psoriasis.
"I often say about Second Skin that she is like a kid that you trained in something as they grew up and then she went on to surprise and delight me by doing so much more that I thought she would. But that's what a great product is, one that has an arch of reach that is long and wide."
- Courtney, Brazen Bee Founder & Formulator
Each ingredient was selected for its therapeutic properties after thorough research.
Lets look at the ingredients to see why this baby works miracles...
Aloe Vera is, hands down, perhaps the most studied plant for skin issues. This healer has most of its power in the polysaccharides it contains. These special plant sugars are crucial to cells of the body talking to each other, which is a primary step in the healing process.
Aloe vera should never ever be left out of a skincare routine because it simply does so much for the skin. Analgesic (pain relieving), Antibacterial, Antiviral, Collagen Stimulator (of the best type of of collagen the skin can make! This means stronger skin, literally), Hormones that speed wound healing. Here is an awesome scientific breakdown of Aloe Vera Studies.
Oat Oil is not only like liquid silk when applied, its avenanthramides are what give it the famous action of soothing and stopping itching. The physical relief that Oat Oil provides in this blend is one of the most important to the sufferer.
Neem Oil ... never underestimate a 4,000 year old healer. This tree that grows primarily in India has been lauded for its healing ability for centuries. Neem is an extremely strong anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and has been used successfully in the treatment of "atopy" which is a general term for issues like eczema, psoriasis, and other reactive skin conditions.
Tamanu Oil is another ancient oil that has been used by indigenous peoples for centuries. This oil has been scientifically shown to be a strong anti-inflammatory and to reduce swelling quickly. It also accelerates wound healing and the regrowth of healthy skin.
Black Cumin Seed Oil has a wealth of vitamins and minerals and is included in Second Skin as a nutrative for compromised skin. It also has shown to be a successful treatment for vitiligo and decrease the histamine (allergic) response of the skin.
Shea Butter is nourishing with great fatty acids and vitamin A as well as contributing to the absorption of the other oils because of its high stearic acid content.
Ucuuba Butter is in the nutmeg family and has been used historically to treat eczema and psoriasis.

Originally developed for a client with Tinea Versicolor. Tinea versicolor is caused by an overgrowth of yeast on the skin. It most often affects teens and young adults. The condition isn't contagious. Symptoms include patches of skin that are lighter or darker than the surrounding skin and discoloration may last for weeks to months.
So I bought a small size for my fiance and I to try....we LOVE it!! He has scars that are loving it and my sensitive skin is so thankful for it as well!
I LOVE the smell of Second Skin. I use it daily for my blemishes (small ones and cystic) after I have applied my SHU moisturizer and allowed that some time to absorb. I have noticed that it really helps to cut down the healing time, as well as cuts down on the after blemish redness/marks. My husband used it for a rash that he got where his wedding ring sits and it cleared it away in 2 days.
This product!!!! I was wearing an ill-fitting bra and rubbed my skin raw. I tried aloe and Neosporin but it wasn't getting any better. I applied Second Skin at night and was healed by the morning - seriously, I couldn't believe it.
I am an ICU nurse required to wear one surgical mask per 12.5 hour shift for the last two months. My jawline and chin now have an itchy, scaly, and burning rash along with the dreaded acne. Second skin has been nothing less than a miracle. My skin instantly feels soothed especially since I keep it in the fridge and begins to heal within a day or so. I take a small amount of Second Skin to work in a small glass container to apply during my shift to stay ahead of the damage. Thank you Brazen Beauty! ❤️
This lotion works for my hypersensitive skin. I used it every night together with oats oil before bed and in the morning my skin feels and looks good. I intend to continue using this. However, at the beginning, I didn't really like the smell of this lotion but after a few days, I just got used to it. It doesn't bother me anymore.
Of all the Brazen Bee products I’ve tried this is my absolute favorite! It’s so soothing and leaves my skin feeling incredibly soft. I used it initially to aid in clearing up hormonal breakouts. Now I use morning and evening on my face and neck as my main moisturizer. It’s healing power is remarkable!
I ran a Pack Burro Race in Victor on Sept 7th. Forgot my Sunlicker/EStick sunscreen, 10k ft elevation , cool but sunny day, and face/shoulder skin that gets red from 15 min in CO sunshine during hikes (esp when I forget my SunLicker and E Stick!)... needless to say there was burning pain for a day or two, then dry itching, then peeling and maybe 6 days after the burn I finally went to BB for some relief. I am kicking myself for not going sooner! The Second Skin serum 3x a day has made the peeling 90% better (my fault for not using sooner bc I think it would have eliminated it totally) and even if I don’t use an oil or body butter for moisturizer, the burned skin feels smooth, soft, and not itchy at all. As a long time customer I am never surprised at the effectiveness of these products, but always beyond satisfied and grateful to have found this company.
BF had a burn on his arm from hot metal (he’s not forthcoming with details). He uses a bit of Second Skin after showers, says it smells nice and the wound is healing well.
I've struggled with a mix of eczema and folliculitis for my entire life. I've tried so many lotions and washes but nothing seemed to help. With Second Skin I could see a difference after one use. My redness had subsided and the bumpiness was no longer there. I wish this came in a larger size because I use this 1-2 times daily (it recommends 3x daily for best results) and I've gotten 2 weeks out of it, you'd go through this fast if you used it 3 times a day. I also have to warn users that this has a very strong smell and its not pleasant, at least not to me. The strong wet soil, earthy smells lingers for a good while after applying but for how well this works I can get past it. I also love that this is natural, so the fact it works so well without any chemicals is amazing.
I cannot rave about this enough! I'd struggled with shingles for a month. They became infected because I had them basically around where your bra band is, and couldn't wear one, so l had three overlapping and rubbing. They became infected. Second skin cleared them up and healed them in days. My Dr was impressed! My husband has used Second Skin on some crusty spots on his hands that came off in days. Nothing has ever removed them. I'll be purchasing this over and over. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
I brought this thinking I could use it on my hands with their brown spots and have ended up using it on my stomach for stretchmarks and on my legs for weird aging whoknowswhattheyare spots and bumps. It smells weird but I think it may become a favorite.
I’ve used Second Skin for so many things! Courtney first recommended it for some really deep/nasty pimples I was getting (helped clear them right up!) and then one day when I got a really bad sunburn, I applied some Second Skin, and it helped so much! It took away the burning/pain and cleared the redness faster than I’ve ever seen!! Love this product!!
I am on my 4th bottle of this amazing little miracle lotion because it is that good! I have tinea versicolor and live in a hot, humid climate and have literally carried a back scratcher in my purse for years. As soon as I put this lotion on, it is instant relief. I am happy to report that it cools my skin and is making my rashes go away! The relief that I feel as soon as it goes on is like nothing I have ever felt before. The burning and itching goes away immediately! This honestly is a cure all for itchy, burning skin and has changed my life.
I recently had to have a stay in the hospital due to what appeared to be a rash on my c-section scar. Infectious disease doctors were called in and biopsies were taken to figure out what I had. When the results came back the doctors still had no answers. I turned to Courtney for answers and she sent me a shipment of goodies. In this shipment was second skin and not only did it help diminish the scars from the biopsy, it has also helped tremendously with my ailment. I still may not know what was the matter with me that caused me to be in the hospital for 6 days. But, I do know that this stuff works! I don't even mess with the steroid creams the doctor prescribed to me, they don't work!
Second skin does amazing things for my skin, this is the go to omg, what do I do to heal this situation/thing on my skin, and it works everytime! Most recently, I had super dry, scaly, bloody, itchy skin on my hands from being in water at work, and cold and dry outside, I rubbed some second skin on when I went to bed and woke up with the softest hands! I recommend this product to folks all the time!!!!!!!
I originally purchased this for the psoriasis outbreak on my neck and scalp. After about a month of daily use my symptoms begin to decrease. It also offered immediate relief when I applied it. However it turned out to be the most effective when I had a poison oak outbreak on my face! I used second skin on it about 3 times a day and it kept the itching completely at bay and rapidly increased the healing process.
My husband is going through extensive radiation for cancer and Courtney hooked me up with Second Skin to help with it. It is definitely the best treatment for it. By now he should be having huge blisters and while he is having some, the Second Skin is helping to keep them at the minimum.
I bought second skin a while ago, but hadn't used it until today. I burned a small area of my palm when I was taking cookies out of the oven. The skin instantly puckered up and turned a white/red. I ran it under cool water, but then I remembered second skin and put some on it. The burn instantly felt better and looks better. I'm sure it would be great on sunburns and more!
My daughter has struggled with eczema since 2 months old. After 8 months of the dreaded steroid cream, moisturizers and lotions that just don't work, Courtney recommended Second Skin and it has been a god send!!! My daughter has been flare up (and steroid ) free for the last 4 months and counting. At times she will get a little red spot and I'll just apply second skin and it's gone within a couple hours. I'm so thankful for Courtney and her amazing products!
10 hours in the hot summer sun put me in a sorry state. By the power of Grayskull, a bottle of Second Skin was waiting in the freezer and I used it in conjunction with fresh aloe every day till it healed. I transferred it to the refrigerator, and it was a cold and welcome friend. Great for dry and itchy skin as well.
