Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just What The Doctor Ordered! I have been using Phormula 3-9 for many years, and this is my go to product; for when my skin needs a little TLC. I mainly use this at night and awake to a smoothed, soothed, and hydrated skin. I also carry the 1oz tube with me in my messenger bag and use this for bumps and bruises. It's a very versatile balm and truly one of the Doctors best original products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from pHenomenal pHormula Incredible product - the MOST healing product I have ever used. Not only for face - I use on scrapes, burns, bruises, even hangnails, they heal practically overnight with this. Love the new glass jar. Good value for results delivered.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product repaired all the damage A skin line I used for 3 years reformulated its products. I had an awful reaction - peeling, dryness, redness. This product repaired all the damage and then went to work improving my skin. This is a really good product - it does what it says and more, and it's worth every penny!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Amazing Results I have used EL since my 30's; I am in my late 60's now. Phormula 3-9 Repair Balm is amazing! I have very porcelain type skin and fair colored skin. I have a slight scar on the side of my face from years ago and Phormula 3-9 has helped tremendously to reduce the visibility of the scar. I use it also great when I am outdoors in the cold weather and/or for extra dryness protection. A little goes a long way. You have to try it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally! Something that works. I held off reviewing 3-9 Repair Balm for quite some time because honestly products seem to help for a short time,and then it's back to haunting the skincare section for the next "fix". I had reached the point of being done and giving up.This product has calmed my red,irritated, broken out face like nothing else.I was so apprehensive considering how dense and moisturizing it is,but my fears were groundless.I can't tell you how good it feels to wake up with a normal looking face for the first time in many years.Bless you all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing This cream looks thick but it soaks right into the skin. Non greasy and no strong scent. Use mostly at night, a little goes a long way which is good because it’s definitely an investment for me at this price. It is totally worth it! Noticed when i wake up skin looks clearer and is soft.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like this for spot treatment I received a 1.0 sample of this and I think it works well for use where I have dry spots that just won\'t go away, i.e., around the inner corners of the nose in cold weather, the eyebrows, or anywhere rough patches exist. It works well on the cheeks too for a glow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Always Recommend This! For Real :) I came across this cream a few years ago and I used it on a scar that never went away. After the first application I saw significance results and now only if you knew where the scar was, you would know it existed there. This the very best!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go to cream for dry skin This product is amazing for dry skin - especially when it is cold and you are inside using heat that dries your skin. Also a must when flying because the quality of air dries your skin. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this product for dry skin. My husband also uses it because he travels a lot and works outside in very dry areas like Arizona.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My beauty “go-to”! This balm is extremely moisturizing of my very dry skin. It helps my skin look young. During the winter months it heals the chapped and cracked skin on my hands and lips. When people ask me what my secret is to looking so young, I tell them “ the Doctor”! That is, Dr Erno Lazlo and his Phormula 3-9 Repair Balm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! Had a laser treatment on a Tuesday which normally meant not leaving the house for two weeks. I used this product twice a day from the moment I got home and was able to go out to dinner with friends Saturday night with no visible dryness or flaking. Amazing product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A 'beautiful' cream I love this cream because it (1) is light feeling, yet feels rich on your skin, (2) has a pleasant smell and leaves your skin looking 'relaxed' in the morning and (3) I love all Phormula 3-9 products, believing them to be the original Laszlo creations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just amazing I'm just in love with that product. My skin is very complicated and I tried many other creams, but nothing helped. I have problems with acne for many years. When I use the Phormula 3-9 my skin gets better in just few weeks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 3-9 Repair Balm There are multiple uses for this amazing cream! And I feel pampered when I apply it as it was for a select few long ago -now any of us mere mortals can enjoy the calming and beautifying properties every night!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not just because of Marilyn Monroe. I don't love this just because it's what Marilyn used, but it's really the best product. Makes your face feel so silky smooth. And I put it on any burns I get from baking...fixes them right up!

I have a lot of redness due to rosacea, would this be a good product to help reduce facial redness? Thanks!

Asked by: Sean
By far this product is my favorite. In my experience it doesn’t eliminate rosacea but helps to keep it at bay. Hopefully my answers helps.

When do you put this cream on? Can it go on under my make up or should I only use it at night? I’m trying to decide when to apply this. Thank you!

Asked by: Anonymous
I use it as a primary moisturize morning and night. Works well under makeup and a little (pea size or less) goes a long way.

Does the product have any firming effects, I know it is hydrating

Asked by: tootsie
No, this product is meant for healing scars or other damage, and helping repair skin. For firming products, check out the Firmarine line.

What’s the difference between the 3-9 cream and balm!

Asked by: Jillpill
The balm is much richer which I like.  The cream is for people who do not need so much richness.   Maybe people with oiler skin will like the cream best.

What is the difference between the balm and the cream?  Which one is richer.....please let me know as I would like to place the order by to,orros

Asked by: Ladydi
The balm is truly richer. If my skin is at all chapped or unhappy, the cream stings when I apply it. The balm is my "wonder cream." I dab it around and let it heat up on my skin, then spread it - "more" is just more, not better. If I had to use only 1 product ever, it would be the balm.
