Amber's Beauty Talk and Nathalie Bond Organics

The very lovely Amber of Amber's Beauty Talk has guest written a blog for us and jotted down her thoughts on our Skin Balm collection. She's also captured some fab photographs. Take it away Amber....

Towards the end of last year, I was lucky enough to be able to try a few Nathalie Bond Organics products, with the body oils being a firm favourite! However, today I’ll be sharing my thoughts on their Skin Balms. Nathalie Bond have three varieties of skin balm; Lavender + Chamomile, Geranium + Patchouli and Extra Sensitive, which is essential oil free and ideal if you have sensitive skin.

The Skin Balms can be applied anywhere you like all over the body. From using it as a lip balm or as a remedy to soften hard skin on the heels, the Nathalie Bond Organics balms have a multitude of uses for nourishing and moisturising skin. The base of all the balms is made with natural, organic oils and waxes like apricot kernel, jojoba oil, sunflower oil, beeswax and calendula extract – all of which are beneficial for taking care of the skin. Then organic essential oils are added into the Lavender + Chamomile and Geranium + Patchouli balms to give them their lovely scents.

I love to use the Lavender + Chamomile Skin Balm before bed as it has a lovely relaxing scent, so I apply this on my heels or elbows to rid of any dry patches. It melts instantly on contact with the skin and it is smooth and quite light. Sometimes balms can be quite thick and leave you feeling sticky, however these sink into the skin and don’t leave a greasy film – but they still do a great job of moisturising the skin. The Lavender + Chamomile is also lovely to apply on my legs if they’re feeling itchy or red a few days after shaving as the essential oils are calming and anti-inflammatory. 

The Extra Sensitive Skin Balm would be ideal for babies or mums-to-be as there is no essential oils. I love using this one as a lip salve as it’s so moisturising and I don’t always like to have a scent on my lips, especially if I’m about to eat or drink.

I’ve thoroughly enjoyed using all three of these balms and I’d definitely recommend them if you’re looking to buy completely natural and organic products. Also, they don’t contain water, which means there’s no preservatives – so they really are as pure as you can get.
