With so many beauty brands existing in the market, we all tend to have a constantly growing wishlist of products we would like to try. Balm Balm, which is 100% natural organic and natural British skincare brand certified by Soil Association, was (and still is) one of those brands on my wishlist. Especially, their Rosehip Serum, which seemed so tempting. Balm Balm Organic Mini Facial Skincare Kit (approx. $21/£13.25) includes: Balm Balm Super Light Coconut Cleanser, Balm Balm Original Witch Hazel Toner, Balm Balm Hibiscus Face Mask, Balm Balm Little Miracle Rosehip Serum and Organic Muslin Cloth. All these mini size items come in an organic cotton bag!
Balm Balm Super Light Coconut Cleanser: this Cleanser contains only 1 ingredient and that is Caprylic/capric triglycerides (Coconut Oil). I know that you probably aren’t that careless like I am, but I have to warn you anyway – be careful when you first open the bottle and try to pour this cleanser out. I didn’t expect it to be so runny and ended up with a handful of it! I managed to get some back to the bottle, but some still got wasted. My bad! Other than that, I should say that if you have ever tried the Oil Cleansing Method, you’ll love this cleanser. If you haven’t tried this method, you might as well give it a try, because there are so many good responses about it. Don’t be afraid to use oils, even if your skin is oily. Also, because the cleanser is so simple and doesn’t have any additional ingredients like perfumes, it is most definitely suitable for sensitive skin.
Balm Balm Original Witch Hazel Toner: the Toner is made with 3 ingredients: Hamamelis Virginia Extract (Witch Hazel), Glycerol and Alcohol. It has a light scent of Witch Hazel. The Toner is quite intense, I could feel my skin tightening every time I applied it after cleansing my face. It didn’t dry out my skin though, but I definitely needed a face cream after using it.
Balm Balm Hibiscus Face Mask: it’s a powder made from natural ingredients (Oryza Sativa Powder (Brown Rice), Hibiscus Sabdariffa Flower Powder (Hibiscus), Pelagonium Graveolens (Rose Geranium)) that you have to mix with water in order to make a mask. Which is actually very clever, because a) the shelf life is longer for dry products, so you can use it longer; b) you can make the consistency you want. Nice! After you mix the powder with water, it turns into a light purple cream, which smells like roses (it’s actually hibiscus, but the scents are very similar). I think the Mask is perfect for dehydrated skin types, because it instantly makes your skin nourished and moisturized.
Balm Balm Little Miracle Rosehip Serum: my favorite from the bunch, I am honestly impressed with this one! It’s quite thick and rich, so I love how moisturizing it feels for my skin. It also adds so much glow it’s crazy. You can use it as an occasional intensive treatment (serum) or as an everyday moisturizer (like I do). It takes some time for it to sink in, but once it does, the skin feels soft and comfortable. The ingredients: Rosa Canina (Rosehip), Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba), Borago Officinalis (Borage), Boswellia Neglecta (Frankincense), Pelagonium Graveolens (Rose Geranium), Cymbopogon Martini (Palmarosa), Juniperus Communis (Juniper Berry), Citrus Nobilis (Mandarin).
Balm Balm also added a cute daisy pocket mirror and their Single Note Lavender perfume. The perfume (certified by Soil Association) smells so good!
