I can’t believe that I’m writing a Katinko review, or any old-people ointment that kids consider them to be. To be honest, I’m like Mariah Carey, I stopped celebrating birthdays after turning 25.
However, I’m at the tita part of my life right now and it’s inevitable for me to get the occasional aray-arays in different sections of my body.
I have no exact barometer of how old the majority of my readers are so if you’re not interested, still keep reading.
Why?! Because bitch we all get old.
Katinko Review 2019 by Amanda of Filipinow
The name seems like it’s best used for alleviating itchiness but Katinko is so much more than that.
Albeit its ugly packaging that’s only appealing to faith healers and shamans, I still didn’t care and decided to take the extra mile and give it a try.
Indications: Helps relieve minor pains and itch, muscle strain, neck and shoulder stiffness, sprain, back pain, headache, colds, travel sickness, bruises, flatulence, insect bite, minor skin irritation.
Avoid contact with eyes. Not recommended for children 2 years of age and below, pregnant and breastfeeding mothers.
Let’s head on to what’s important in this Katinko Review 2019.
The packaging, again, is very ugly. I don’t know what your taste is like but even if it’s aesthetically unpleasant for me, I like how the cap is easy to open and dispensing the product requires no frills.
I’ve tried numerous menthol balms and this one has a very strong scent (which is good) and can deliver an almost instantaneous relaxing feeling.
The balm is easily spreadable and absorbed by the skin.
If you’re planning to go out and you don’t want to smell like you’re under an important health care plan, skip it.
However, it’s something that I’ve become accustomed to (forcefully because of aging) so I happily apply it not only before going to bed.
It’s funny because just years ago, I used to have a diffuser on and bask into the calming power of lavender before bedtime but I’ve traded all of that luxury because of tired arms and faulty joints lol.
This is getting sadder and sadder so let’s stop talking about its horrendous scent and let’s talk more about the benefits that I get from it.
What I like
Gets rid of itchiness especially right after shaving (legs area only)
Calms sore and overworked muscles (usually after general cleaning)
