More about the Product of Kenipp Arnica Body Massage Oil

Size: 100ml

Price: SGD $28.90

Product Description: This is a preservative and perfume free Warming Massage Oil that provides the triple effect of warming, moisturizing and relaxing benefits. 

It contains:

almond oil and shea butter-make your skin feel soft and smooth.
Ginger extract-provides a pleasantly warming sensation.
Arnica- prevents sore muscles when used in combination with a massage.

Apply a thin layer and massage evenly into skin while allowing for the oil to absorb. Do not use on cracked, irritated skin. 

I love these 2 products because they contain the extracts of Ginger. Ginger is well-known for its medicinal effect to improve blood circulation throughout the body.

Although I know about the goodness of Ginger, I cannot stand its overbearing spicy smell. However, this product’s ginger fragrance is quite mild in nature which I will not mind using on my skin. Perhaps the reason behind this is the fact that it is being absorbed into my skin easily without leaving much of the lingering fragrance of the ginger extract behind. And the amazing thing is that my skin does not feel oily or sticky after the usage of this product.

As a busy OL (Office Lady), I have to sit in front of the computer at least 8 hours per day. More often than not, I will be in the same sitting position and posture unless I take a short toilet break or attend meeting. As a result, I do experience the following evitable occupational symptoms -my shoulder will feel stiff and my back aches.

Here is where this product will come in handy to release the muscle tension on my back. Since then, I have been using this product on a regular basis and I do feel that my tighten muscle has loosen up gradually. At the same time, this product also moisturises my dry skin since it is body massage oil. I will highly recommend this product to people who are currently experiencing aches on their body just like me.

More about the Product of Kenipp Warming Foot Balm

Size: 75ml

Price: SGD 29.90

Product Description: With long-lasting heat effect, this product is able to keep your feet warm and cosy.  It is particularly suitable for people travelling to colder climates and elderly suffering from poor circulation in their extremities.

It is also safe for diabetics’ usage as it is being developed together with the podiatrist.

It contains: 

ginger and cardamon oil-improves circulation,
nurturing macadamia oil, honey essence & vitamin E-nourishes and protects skin.

Usage: If needed, apply several times a day and massage softly. Do not use on cracked skin, on mucous membrane, or in area of the eyes.

I like the design of this product because it has a round down cap to allow an easy application of this foot balm. 

The way to use this product is simply to roll this product on your feet and massage softly.

This type of user-friendly design minimises the contact of my hand with the foot balm, so that my hand will not feel so hot. Do remember to avoid extra heat sources such as taking a shower, bath or sauna sessions before and after the application. 

By the way, the response time of this product is almost immediate and you will feel a sting of warmness on your feet instantly.

The warmth that I feel is quite pleasant though. I will strongly advise you not to apply too much an application as a small amount is already adequate to improve the blood circulation. 

This product is suitable for usage if you are thinking of travelling to colder usage. For me, I am used to the hot sunny climate of Singapore and is scared of cold. If I am travelling to cold countries such as Norway or Canada, I will surely bring this product with me.

I want to win because I want to save my time from going to the limited outlets selling Kneipps products, and save myself from the trouble of facing "out of stock" situation as I assume will happen after reading so many good reviews on the effectiveness of Kneipps products. Bet everyone wants to try them out, and of course I am included.

Most important, I want to have healthy looking skin from top to toe with the help of Kneipps massage oil.

Hi Carol,

Thanks for sharing your review on these fabulous products with us. Through your review, I get to know the benefits of these 2 products.

I hope to win the Arnica Body Massage oil because I have to sit in front of the computer at least 12 hours per day. Subsequently, I do experience the same symptoms as you. In addition, I have sensitive and dry skin so this product which can act as moisturizer and is perfume free will suit my skin type.

Last but not least, I travel quite often to northern hemisphere countries so Kneipp Warming Foot Balm will come in handy for my poor feet who are often neglected.

I love to win the Kneipp's products because I hope that after using these products on a regular basis, I can reap the same benefits as you.

Thanks in advance!

I want to win this because I like to try some "spa" at home. I hope to do some DIY myself and Kneipp product is a choice that I would want to try. Whether it is the Arnica Body Massage Oil which is good for my aching body due to work and the warming foot balm that will be great for my aching leg too. So with Kneipp, I can do my own spa.

Wow Carol this is a great recommendation. I and my husband is planning to go to Korea next year, this will be a great try and preparation for a winter season.

I will tell you something that only closest friends of mine know about. Even Singapore is a hot weathered country, I do not use ac or electric fan on my sleep. My body really aches when hit by cold air. Haha!

I hope to win this product! Thanks Carol :) Thanks Kneipp!

Kneipp Arnica Body Massage Oil will be great for my moisturizing my dry skin and at the same time relieves the aches on my back and shoulders.

Regardless of the hot weather, I have real cold feet since I’m little. Probably because of my floor tiles and my blood circulation is bad. I need the Kneipp Warming Foot Balm to keep my feet warm.

I would really love to try the foot balm. My poor dehydrated feet have been getting worse. I've tried many creams but the results disappoint me. The massage oil contains some interesting and unusual ingredient which has really ignited my curiosity :)

It is difficult to find perfume free Warming Massage Oil and most of the massage oil I have tried always come with a strong perfume and stays on my body (which I do not like it). I hope that I can win this to also to experience this warming and relaxing feeling.

Hi Carol,
Thanks for organizing such lovely giveaway.

I've been wanting to try out the various products of Kneipp and after reading your review on them, the urge to get my hands on them grew even more. I would so loved to experience the same effects that you had from the Kneipps effects and hopefully had a better night sleep after that. My tensions are just too tight! I seriously need the extra help from Kneipp.
