I have also become an "I'm A [Tincture of Benzoin] Believer." It is very successfully replacing the stoma powder and barrier spray/wipe in my arsenal after routinely using both under my Eakin and wafer from the beginning. Unlike many others, I never had trouble using both, but it is nice to only have to use one product in one step. My skin actually looks better and the other perk is that it is less expensive.
I first purchased a 50 pack of PDI Compound Tincture of Benzoin 10% swabs for less than $15 including shipping on Ebay--a very good deal.
This past week I received my first bottle of "Dan's Friar's Balsam Compound Benzoin Tincture" by Rogier. And yes, I do believe they should change the name This was also an Ebay purchase for less than $23 including shipping--another good deal.
The swabs are handy and worked very well. I will try Dan's Friar's for the first time with my next change to see if I think there is a difference.
I think I have a tiny bit of a yeast thing going on, though. Wondering if I can use the miconazole powder and then the T of B on top. Dan? Anyone? Can this be done?
