  • Love this balm!

    Jessica N. September 09, 2021

    This balm is fantastic! I have sensitive, dry skin and have had a difficult time finding an eye cream that doesn’t irritate. I use it around my eyes at night and love it.

  • Great on top of Tretinoin

    Jackie August 18, 2019

    I put this on top of my 0.1 % Tretinoin every night, and my skin is never irritated or dry the next day. I’m very cystic acne-prone, and it doesn’t cause acne at all. Highly recommend.

  • My new staple

    Melissa C. August 03, 2019

    I’ve been using this balm for 2 months now and it’s a game changer. My skin is very dry and I’ve tried many moisturizers that just didn’t make a difference. I stopped in the store on a recent trip and this was recommended to me by one of the associates. I pair it with the rose toner for application. It’s incredibly hydrating and absorbs well into my skin. I was a bit worried it would be too heavy in the summer heat but had no issues. Even on a 95 degree day with 70% humidity with this under my make up! Highly recommend!

  • Unbeatable

    Christina D. August 01, 2019

    I adore this balm! I’ve been a beauty junkie for quite some time and this is my HOLY GRAIL! I mix it with the Kari Gran Hydrating Tonic (Rose) for a smooth application. It makes my skin glow and has caused me to use less makeup (in a good way)! Nothing to hide here, this stuff is what you need. A little goes a long way too, so definitely worth the money on top of all the other clean beauty benefits.
