I was not going to buy this, I absolutely can't stand to put my fingers into products. I think its dirty! I don't like the fact I always get product under my nails, and I don't want to inadvertently transfer any bacteria into the vessel. Yet I realize I am ordering the Eye Balm too, so I tell myself to get over it! And am I glad I kept it in the cart!
I first heard of Indie Lee through Beauty Army.com. I was intrigued by not only her story but how she crafted her skin care. No green-washing here, only the finest, highest quality ingredients from all over the world. The first thing I thought of when I unscrewed the top was, it looks like a pot of beeswax; that same goldenrod shade of yellow.
I use it the way I was using my Elizabeth Arden 24 hour creme. I put it on my elbows, knees, heels, cuticles, tattoos and now my BF is using it on his psoriasis. It's actually emollient enough that I use it on my arms and my shins as a little goes a long way. I find that it works well as a hand salve and skin protector against the elements. Hello windy rainy California! I find I put it on my hands all day long, even when I don't need it, it just feels and smells so good! I think I'm addicted.
Not scented in a particular fashion, I find The Balm smells lightly of lavender. Enriched with Avocado Oil, which is one of the most penetrating oils, it leaves a slight sheen on my skin as well as an added moisturize barrier of oils on the surface.
Have you tried The Balm?
