I’m a sucker for a good balm, and the multipurpose nature of The Organic Pharmacy’s offering boasts over twenty uses. A mix of rose, argan, pomegranate, rose hip and calendula oils, the balm boasts some real heavy hitters for both moisturizing and healing.
Packaged into an easily portable tub, the balm is a little thinner in consistency than I was expecting – when you swirl your finger you get more of an oil than a balm, but it glides on easily and soaks in quickly. The scent is undoubtedly rose, although there is a faint fruity trace, which I’m guessing is thanks to the pomegranate. This means it lacks the old-lady element which you find with some rose fragrances.
I have primarily been using the balm as a lip product, although it also works nicely on cuticles and on any little bits of dry skin which appear. When I travel my skin tends to seize up, so I can’t wait to pop this in my carry-on!
Rose Balm is priced at £25.00
