I love a good balm, especially this time of year when the weather starts getting colder. My skin gets so dry that standard moisturisers just don’t cut it and I am always on the hunt for the perfect balm.
As I have said in previous posts, I am starting to use more natural products on my skin and swapping out my current favourites for like for like products. Get those pesky chemicals away from me!
I recently came across Ezápé Naturals on Instagram and ordered a couple of their sample sized balms. For £1.50 you get a sample of the rosemary body butter and the chamomile balm. They’re good sizes too! I wish more companies did that because get those tiny, fiddly sachets away from me! Vanessa, who owns the company, kindly gifted me a larger sized pot of the chamomile balm after we got chatting, which is completely unexpected and very generous of her!
First of all this balm is 100% natural and handmade in the UK. YAS! The balm glides on to skin and melts in very quickly, leaving a protective barrier without the greasiness. This was what I really like about this product because I can use it in the day without it transferring onto my clothes, phone or what else is around me. I have also noticed that after I have washed my hands, there is still a moisturised feeling so I haven’t had to reapply 5000 times throughout the day and a little bit of this stuff goes a long way! The balm smells really light and delicate, perfect for skin that can be irritated easily by strong fragrances (mine…miss you perfume). I have also noticed a difference in my hand eczema after only a few days. My hands, knuckles especially, get really dry and cracked at this time of year, you know that sort of eczema that no matter how many times you moisturise it’s still dry…well this balm has sorted them out! The itchiness has definitely gone and they’re slowly starting the heal! I can actually bend my hands without them splitting open! Yassssssss!
Overall, I really like this balm and what the brand stands for. They have proved that you can treat dry, sensitive skin with products that are 100% natural without all the fuss. This pot will definitely be staying next to my kitchen sink as I have no excuse for dry hands anymore!
You can pick up your pot of chamomile balm from http://www.ezapenaturals.co.uk for £10-20 or £1.50 for 2 sample sized pots.
As I said earlier I was kindly gifted this product by the brand but in no way am I getting paid or being told what to write for this review. All words and opinions are my own.
