Gauge Gear Stretching Balm 10ml

What it claims: Gauge Gear is a premium healing balm made to relieve and heal the effects of stretching your ears. This 100% organic balm is made from a blend of natural ingredients that act as a soothing and healing agent for your newly stretched skin.  It is also great to use after your ears are stretched to keep stretched ear healthy and helps slide plugs in with ease (helps insert double flared plugs more easily)

Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (sweet almond) oil
Simmondsia chinesis (Jojoba)
Seed Oil
Triticum Vulgare (Wheat) Germ oil
Melaleuca slternifolia (tea tree) oil
Commiphora myrrha (Myrhh) oil

Price : $5.99 (£3.49)
Size : 10ml

My experience: I used this product to try and stretch my ears from 10mm (00g) to 12mm and from 6mm (2g) to 8mm. It was not helpful as it did not add enough lubrication even though I applied an excessive amount to both my ears as well as the stretchers themselves. 


  • Not that great for stretching
  • Smells pleasant
  • Doesn't feel too high quality

Would I recommend: 2/5 For stretching ears, no I would not recommend but for ears which are dry and damaged from stretching it may be more successful as it has the added tea-tree oil. For the price it costs, it would be more cost effective to buy 250g of normal Vaseline and save just under £1.
