Winter skin saviors – the BALM

If there is one product everyone needs in skincare, a beauty BALM it is.

So what is a BALM then? Is a potent waterless moisturizer, made of rich butter,oils and plants extracts, including essential oils, and it’s been used for centuries to heal, soothe, moisturize, fragrance, and smooth skin.

This multitasking product, can easily be used as a moisturizer(body or face), lip balm, hand moisturizer (cuticles),foot cream, solid perfume, hair texturizer, face mask, after-sun or windburn treatment, conditioner, highlighter, brow tamer, flyaway smoother.You can mix a bit of balm with any powder eyeshadow, blush, or bronzer to make a skin-luminizing cream; runners use it to prevent chafing; and many can be used as makeup remover/moisturizing cleanser.

It’s all about BALMS this winter and I’ve decided to collaborate with @naturalbeautymermaid and share our collection of balms.I remember in the past when I’ve started suffering of very dry skin,and nothing helped at the moment,but when I discovered green beauty,the BALM came to the rescue,and we’ve got stuck since.Discover more on my blog (direct link in bio👆)and also @naturalbeautymermaid haul on her page 💗

Usually when I get a new balm,I look at ingredients to have calendula and/or chamomile, since they are calming and have healing properties.

So here’s the lineup of my current balms:



Made with vegan waxes great for elbows, knees, knuckles, and heels. Scented with Peru Balsam essential oil, which has a vanilla/fire wood unisex scent to it,is said to be mildly antiseptic, and may be beneficial to use topically on wounds and burns. In addition to Argan oil and calendula infused jojoba oil, this skin loving body balm may be a great treat for your skin!
