When it comes to skincare, I like to keep things as simple as possible. I don’t have the time or the energy each morning to faff around with multiple products. After all, the less time I need to get ready, the more time I get to spend in bed – win win. When it comes to makeup, I’ve streamlined my routine into a handful of favourites which I rotate through weekly, but when it came to body products I’ve been less curated in my approach – slapping n various creams, balms and serums and hoping for the best.
I think I may have found a go-to with the D’Alchemy Essential Body Balm. A rich and emollient cream which smoothes easily into skin, it’s an absolute showstopper of a product. Aside from the glorious texture which manages to feel nourishing without straying into the sticky or greasy territory, the scent is absolutely divine. It’s light and zesty, and it feels perfect for summer, since after using the cream in the morning, I kept smelling citrusy notes all day long. As you might expect from the brand, the balm’s ingredients are nearly entirely natural and organic, and it contains everything from Witch Hazel, Argan Oil, Lemon Verbena and Shea Butter to keep skin in top condition. Even though the brand recommends the balm for older skin types, I love it for keeping everything perfectly hydrated for summer.
D’Alchemy Essential Body Balm is priced at £58.60 and is available here.
