This product has a simple name, but not so simple ingredients.
The product contains ten main ingredients, i.e. allantoin, bisabolol, vitamin E, oils of baobab seed and bruiti as well as extracts of honey, propolis, pollen extract, royal jelly, arnica. The mix of ingredients is rich in antioxidants, minerals, and amino acids. All of the components were added to soothe, protect, hydrate, and strengthen your skin’s resilience. It’s a deluxe mix filled with nourishing ingredients that will help with dehydrated and sensitised skin. The formula also includes humectants like glycerine to keep the skin well moisturised. The product is fragrance-free, and it’s suitable for all skin types.
The product was created with the idea of calming and repairing the skin. After applying my face feels hydrated and soothed. Now, as the temperatures have dropped, my skin tends to get easily sensitised from temperature changes, wind, and pollution, so I tend to opt for more soothing products like this one. You can definitely sense the soothing effect the balm has on the skin; it feels like a comforting bandage. It can take down some irritation in a short time after using it. Although it has the phrase ‘balm’ in its name, which brings a dense and oily cream to my mind, this product has a light yet creamy texture; it’s not heavy at all. It works with my mixed complexion. I use it during my morning routine, and it doesn’t make my skin shiny yet. I would say that this product is more than just a regular moisturiser. It’s a hybrid between a light moisturiser and a balm, which put together create the perfect balance of providing enough moisture to the skin and the velvety texture. For these reasons, this product has recently become my go-to moisturiser.
I like this product a lot, and I recommend it to all skin types. It doesn’t clog pores or cause breakouts. It works for dehydrated and sensitive skin. It provides a nourishing and moisturising boost for your skin without being suffocating if you know what I mean. It’s ideal whenever your skin is irritated, especially while using harsh skin treatments. It’s an excellent product if you look for a moisturiser that will do more than solely hydrate your skin. It’s a must-try moisturiser for any season; perhaps you would use less of it during summer. I must say it wouldn’t work well just on its own for people who live in harsh climates, where temperatures drop way below zero degrees, and it snows most of the time. You may want to follow up with a facial oil to protect your face from the cold.
