I really want to like Balm Balm Rose Germanium Face Balm. It’s 100% natural, 100% organic and has great ingredients like shea butter, calendula, bees wax and jojoba oil. (It’s for all skin types and not as greasy as it sounds). I love the name Balm Balm (probably because it sounds like bon bons) and I admire the fact that this little balm is so ambitious.
Here’s how it can be used: on the face, lips, cuticles, hands, feet, elbows, and even on disheveled eyebrows. It’s like the skincare version of Leonardo da Vinci (who was a philosopher, inventor, architect, engineer, mathematician and painter).
I threw Balm Balm in my purse to see just how useful it would be throughout the day. I was about to go into an interview and noticed my eyelids were looking like eyelid jerky (wrinkly and dehydrated), the Balm Balm made them immediately look better. It helped my cuticles look less like I’d been trying to tunnel out of prison, using only my fingernails. It helped my chapped lips (but only for an hour). And by the end of the day, when my eyebrows started looking like fuzzy caterpillars, that were trying to crawl off my face, the Balm Balm helped them fall back in line. (Apparently, I decompose quickly throughout the day.) So, yes, I guess it was a helpful, little skincare item to have in my bag.
But while it does do a lot, it doesn’t do anything really well. Turns out rather than being the da Vinci of skincare products, it’s more like the Hugh Jackman (actor, singer, dancer, bad Oscar host) of skincare products.
Thank you Barbara for not forcing Mickey Rourke to do this to you as well.
So if you’re traveling and want to pack light, or if you always like to be prepared, or if you’re going to be on Survivor and can only bring one item, this might be just the product for you.
I love the idea of a uni-product that does it all. Does anyone have one they think works really well?
