TGF Rated Review: Dr. Bronner’s Organic Body Balms
Who is reviewing it? Jo, 50 something year old with dried skin on certain areas of the body. I tried the Patchouli Lime Organic Body Balm.
What is it meant to do? The balms have been formulated to soothe dry and chapped skin.
What did it do? I used this on my elbows, knees and hands, but the greatest effect was to be found when I used it to relieve the sore, cracked skin around my nose during and after having ‘flu’!
The balm is easy to apply, only a small amount is needed, and because it is non-greasy it is absorbed easily into the skin.
What else does it do? Dr. Bronner‘s Body Balms promise to protect and brighten new and old tattoos. Sorry, can’t help you here as I don’t have any tattoos, but I can certainly understand why these balms would be effective in moisturising tattooed skin.
Ingredients: organic jojoba oil with organic beeswax, avocado and hemp oils. Only the finest organic essential oils are used for fragrance.
Alternative balms: Orange Lavender, Peppermint, Naked and new unscented Baby-Mild balm for babies extra-sensitive skin.
Packaging: Each balm comes in a perfect pocket sized funky looking retro tin. Perfect for recycling when empty, pretty enough to give to friends for a gift, great to keep in your handbag.
Rating: The balm will last a long time as only a small amount is needed. The earthy scent of patchouli combined with the vibrant citrusy lime perfume alone would warrant a top rating, but the product itself gets a 5 star award from me.
