So, What Is a Skin Stick?

We all know that that lotion is meant to soothe the skin on your hands and body and a lip balm is meant to soothe your lips. But Skin Sticks from Perfectly Posh will give you the best of both worlds—a no-mess stick for on-the-go moisturizing to soothe your face, lips, hands, feet, elbows, et cetera. As the very first product launched by Perfectly Posh, The Healer™ Skin Stick has a special place in our hearts.

Why? It’s 100% soothing shea butter with just a touch of essential oils and beeswax. That’s it. The product that started Posh. Once The Healer was created, we couldn’t stop finding places to use this fabulous stick. We’ve all been in those agonizing situations (take that extremely loong meeting, for example) where all you can focus on is your uncomfortably dry hands—or worse, parched lips, but you have nothing to solve the issue. Don’t get stuck like that: slip The Healer into your bag or purse, and use it as frequently as you need—it’s perfect for these on-the-go emergencies. Our most popular product of all time, The Healer is your new go-to remedy for inconvenient dry skin.

Standout Benefits of The Healer

What’s in a name? The Healer lives up to its reputation as it can be applied in almost countless ways. Here are a few of our favorite reasons to use it:

  • Soothes dry patches, cracked skin, or parched lips. The shea butter base of The Healer is particularly good at caring for your skin, cuticles, and lips on a deeper level thanks to stearic and oleic acids (plant lipids). For this reason, it nourishes even your most delicate skin better than almost any other ingredient out there. It is a no-brainer to have on hand when it comes to caring for dry skin.


  • Contains anti-aging ingredients. When you care for your skin properly now, you’re making sure it looks absolutely gorgeous in the future too. With antioxidant vitamin A and nourishing shea butter, The Healer helps to promote younger and smoother looking skin. Simply glide the along fine lines or wrinkles.


  • Shields from pollution and the elements. Our surrounding environment has quite the impact on our skin, because skin is the first line of protection against pollution and other environmental issues. The ingredients in The Healer create a protective layer to support your skin’s moisture barrier, helping prevent micro-tears, cracks, and dry or flaky skin.

Special Ingredients

Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter. With skin-loving fatty acids and antioxidants, shea butter works to condition your skin and bring you the soothing relief you need. We proudly source the shea butter in The Healer from our Shea Sisterhood Co-Op to ensure that the money we use to purchase raw shea goes directly back to the women who harvest and process it. Let’s give a hand for shea!

Cera Alba (Beeswax). Both a humectant and an occlusive, beeswax draws moisture to the surface of your skin and locks it in for lasting softness. While many skin products and lip balms use petroleum bases to soothe chapped skin, beeswax is a natural alternative with plenty of youth-promoting vitamin A to support a healthy-looking complexion.

Vanilla Planifolia (Vanilla) Oil, Citrus Sinensis (Orange) Oil, Citrus Paradisi (Pink Grapefruit) Oil. All three of these ingredients combine for one of our most popular, phthalate-free, natural fragrances. Plus, vanilla, orange oil, and grapefruit oil contain helpful antioxidants to combat free radicals that can dull and deplete skin.
