Resin Balm 10%

”Aloin käyttää pihkavoidetta halkeileviin kantapäihini. Kantapäiden pinta oli rosoinen ja kovettunut, myös pieniä halkeamia oli. Parin viikon sisällä muutosta oli ehtinyt tapahtua paljon. Halkeamat alkoivat katoamaan ja kovettumat pehmenemään. Ennen voiteen käyttöä kantapäihini jopa sattui aika ajoin, mutta sekin on kantapäiden tervehtymisen kanssa helpottanut.”
