What we say:
I absolutely love the Balm Balm. It has done wonders for my hands, where I needed it the most and if used sparingly (as directed) it does not leave your skin greasy or sticky. It took a couple of days for it to start working – I think my hands needed to “drink” the stuff in first, but after that I didn’t need to reapply it as often, which is what I do with other hand creams. My hands are supple, younger-looking and the unsightly cracks on the tips of my fingers are gone! My husband, who has always teased me about my hands being so dry and aged, has commented on how soft they now are and even used it a few times on his lips! The only downside is that the fragrance can be quite strong if you are sensitive to floral scents (I had a slight headache). But I am looking forward to getting the fragrance free and tea tree varieties to try out. If you have oily skin, I don’t recommend using it on your face, except maybe as eye cream at night. I think that it’s well worth the price and just the fact that it’s 100% natural earns a gold star in my book. I would recommend it to everyone as it has many more uses, than applying it as a cream.
I love the fact that it’s organic and the smell of Balm Balm’s Rose Geranium is really amazing. This is a no-fuss type of product when it comes to the packaging but I have to admit these products are quite expensive, although I can understand why because most organic products are pricey. Although the balm is a multipurpose product, I will not recommend this balm for your face, maybe it’s because my skin is a bit sensitive, I don’t know, but I tried Balm Balm on my cheeks and neck, and after a few seconds my cheeks were very rosy and my neck had red blotches all over. But I have to say my skin felt very soft after applying it to the rest of my body. Just a pity about the red spots. Overall this product is terrific for dry skin, hands, elbows etc, it might be a bit oily in the beginning but it only takes a few seconds to absorb into your skin. Apply this balm to the areas that really needs it, and you will experience great results.
