Thicker than a body lotion, richer than a cream, balm is the quintessential treatment par excellence. It melts under the fingers and in the skin, and massages leaving behind subtle scents. Balm in the heart and body!
A balm in winter
Between cold and wind, winter damages our skin, causing drought, tightness and discomfort. In addition to hydrating it, it must be protected with lipids and adopt nourishing rather than hydrating care that is insufficient. The ideal to combine business with pleasure are the balms, often organic or based on natural ingredients, which are rich in vegetable oils and butters thus providing effective protection and intense nutrition. Located on the texture side between rich nourishing cream and vegetable butter, balms are precious beauty allies to help cutaneous cells to withstand external aggressions. On the program: massage gestures for fun application, slippery texture, satin finish and supple skin that ... balm!
