African Botanics Intense Skin Repair Balm

Harnessing centuries-old African skin care traditions, Intense Skin Repair Balm is an indulgent, multi-correctional treatment rich in nourishing ingredients to address skin imbalance, counteract signs of fatigue and reduce reactivity to leave your face feeling plumped, smooth and replenished.
Starring jasmine blossom and rose otto extracts blended with a cocktail of cold-pressed, phytonutrient and vitamin-rich oils – marula, baobab, Kalahari melon, evening primrose, African immortelle, calendula and rosehip – this indulgent treatment balm is instantly replenishing; soothing stresses and reducing inflammation while supporting skin’s protective lipid barrier. Powerfully regenerative, this fortifies skin’s fabric – enhancing elasticity and firmness while reversing signs of damage – while skin-plumping niacinamide, resveratrol, CoQ10, vitamin C ester and retinol work synergistically to ‘tighten’, lift and lessen visibility of fine lines, scarring, blemishes and pigmentation patches. It’s the ultimate treat for dry, damaged, mature and reactive complexions – correcting the appearance of the most inflamed and easily-offended skin types.
AM/PM warm a pea sized amount of balm between your fingertips and massage well onto cleansed damp skin: face, neck and decollete. Allow to absorb by massaging upward and outwards for a few minutes to boost circulation. Reapply for added moisture and protection. Excellent around the eye area and as an intense lip treatment. Dab it over eye shadows for a glossy look, pat it over the cheekbones to give dewy highlights, brush it through brows to tame and condition.

High hopes but this didn't live up

I had high hopes for this purchase but this balm did not work for me. It melts nicely, is a nice consistency and applies well. You don't need much. Works like a good quality oil - overall has a reasonably hydrating effect. However, it is not soothing. In fact it irritated a dry patch of skin around my chin. Its OK if I avoid that but its really nothing special, which at this price you are hoping for. The May Lindstrom blue cocoon balm does the job much better on my skin with zero irritation.

Gorgeous indulgence

Been using the balm for 2 weeks now at night and loving it! The scent is heavenly and the balm really does melt into an easy to absorb oil. I use it as my last facial product over my moisturiser. A little goes a long way. My skin used to be oily with breakouts bit now it's settled since changing my skincare regime; this African Botanics balm has not caused any issues with oiliness. I plan on starting to use retinoids so definitely will use the balm to soothe/prevent any dryness or irritation.

This is going to be huge!

Just finished a review of the AB cleansing oil (highly recommend). I was on the wait list for the intense facial balm and I've never been so ridiculously excited in the wait for a product. Thank you Cult Beauty for the comprehensive ingredient list as it makes a huge difference in the decision making process. So, the balm arrived yesterday and I've used twice - last night before bed, and early evening today after my post-work cleanse. Balm is not as solid as most I've seen/tried and is a pale brown colour (looks a bit like chocolate orange mousse). A small amount does indeed transform into a serum between fingertips, and the best bit, you really can apply this as a full-face moisturiser, including the eye orbit. Feels beautiful actually. After my early evening use I can confirm your skin (mine is 48, and feeling dehydrated at the end of winter) really drinks it. Not your usual balm in that respect. I can confirm zero eye irritation or puffiness after the overnight use, and I have a severe dry eye condition which means mine are super-sensitive. I'm loving this, I'm loving African Botanics. This is going to be a hero product for me. Pricey I know, but right now I'm not begrudging the spend one bit.
