Balm Balm Rose Geranium Lip Balm

June 3, 2008

I found Balm Balm in my local Boots store and decided to buy some after reading a couple of articles about it online.

I love Balm Balm because I can use it on everything. Although the packaging says lip balm I have used it on my face, hands and feet too. I’ve even used it to take the frizz out of the ends of my curly hair and after I’ve straightened it to smooth down static hairs – making it a cheap and natural alternative to hair serums. It’s rich but non greasy product that is quickly absorbed and I’m sure the more I use it, the more uses I will find for it.

I sometimes find Geranium a bit too strong, but Balm Balm have the perfect balance with rose being the stronger of the two

I read on the Balm Balm website that you can add extra fragrance to your balm (especially the fragrance free balm) by heating it up in the microwave, adding a few drops of essential oil and then letting it cool and solidify. They even recommend using this method to create your own perfume, which I will try.

Summary

  • Pros: Great value for money, versatile product
  • Cons: I wish it came in bigger tubs
