Generally, a face balm is used by individuals with drier skin than most. There are three types of moisturizers used on the skin, a balm, cream, or lotion. The differences between the three is usually their consistency and thickness.
For example, a balm uses no water and is thick and more moisturizing on the skin. Creams may or may not include water and has a lighter consistency than balms. While lotions are the lightest when it comes to consistency and provide the skin with a light moisturizing affect; lotions are used mostly during the hotter seasons.
When to Balm?
The best time to apply face balms is before apply makeup or as an evening face treatment. As balms are used to treat specific skin conditions, i.e. spot treatment, dryness, etc.
What makes this Balm special?
Typically, balms include oils and beeswax as their base ingredients; however, we veered away from beeswax and include nourishing butters to our balm to enhance the facial skin.
We put our faces through so much; makeup, weather, sunlight, etc., this causes the facial skin to become more sensitive as we age. The use of natural butters instead of beeswax in our balm allows the skin to regenerate and rebuild itself.
Preferably, we advise the use of the balm in the evening or on those days where you spend most of your days relaxing at home, this will allow your skin to relax and the ingredients of the balm to work with your body.
So What's in the balm?
Natural Butters: Fatty acids, nutrients, vitamins act as natural moisturizers, creating a soft, supple, younger looking skin.
Key Carrier Oils: Moisturizes, hydrate, and detoxify skin, resulting in a clearer, smoother face.
Essential Oils: Act as protection for the skin, clears acne, protects against eczema, soothe dry skin, act as an anti-inflammatory.
Why NO Almond oil?
This is a balm I use on my face as well as my children's faces, one child is allergic to Almond oil. There is a high allergy rate to Almond oil overall, so I've decided to eliminate Almond oil from one recipe and include it in another. You have the option to include the oil or not. Please keep your allergies in mind when ordering, you may customize your cream in the Notes to Seller section.
***Allergy alert: There is Almond and Avocado oil in the balm, so please if you're allergic to any of these oils, advise at ordering so they may not be included***
Can I order a larger size?
Yes, I have in this listing a 2 oz, however will be working on larger sizes in the future.
When will the balm expire?
All of the butters and oils have shelf lives of 1+ years, and no water was used in the formula, so you should be able to use the balm for at least 1 year.
How do I use the balm?
To Moisturize: First wash the face with your cleanser of choice, you may purchase one of our exfoliating face soaps from the listing below. Towel dry the skin, use your finger and place a pea size amount onto your palm, rub your palms together, apply to face.
As a Makeup Remover: Apply small amounts of the balm in the area where you'd like to remove the makeup, spread the balm using the circular motion, and remove with a soft cloth or tissue.
