Balm Balm Little miracle rosehip balm

I’m a huge fan of Balm Balm and as you know I love multi-tasking balms.  As with all Balm Balm products, this is lovingly hand-made.  It is also 100% organic and natural.

First of all the scent is amazing, so aromatic and invokes feelings of calm and peace.

The texture is lovely and it literally melts into the skin.  It is so moisturising and nourishing and can be used any where on the body.  I particularly like to use it to soothe and heal my little girl’s eczema patches.

I also like to use it as a night cream, it feels totally pampering and leaves my skin nourished.  As it doesn’t feel heavy or greasy it works well for me.

I’ve tried this mask a few times as it’s been featured in previous boxes.  It is especialy good for dull, tired skin.  The consistency is like a serum and it’s easy to apply.  Simply apply a thin layer, leave on for 10 minutes and then rinse.
It helps to remove dead skin cells leaving my skin less congested, smoother and brighter.

This is my first time trying Dr.Botanicals so I was keen to try this out.  I’m now a fan of coffee scrubs, the main active ingredients are:

  • Coffee Oil –  concentrated from the green coffee bean plant and it is high in antioxidants and fatty acids that nourish and work to protect the skin’s complexion.
  • Walnut Shell Powder –  a natural exfoliant, it gently removes dull and dry skin cells to reveal soft and smooth skin.

I use this once a week to exfoliate after cleansing.  The scent is yummy and reminds me of tiramisu.  As a exfoliant it feels gentle on the skin and it leaves my skin really soft and smooth.

  1. That balm sounds fantastic, I really want to get my hands on it! And those products from Dr. Botanicals also sound good, now I feel I am really missing out (used to receive LoveLula beauty box, but not anymore). 😦
