  • makes my face smells like cookies 🍪

    Carolyn K. December 10, 2021

    love this product! smells sweet and is perfect for the cold winter months. a staple product in my collection

  • Repurchasing right now

    Anthony D. April 02, 2021

    I’m a skin care junkie and like to try everything; this is one of the only skin care products that I’ve ever repurchased. A little bit goes a long way. If I ever feel like treating myself, I use a little bit more than I should. I use an oil to finish my routine 95% of the time but I never have to use one after using this moisturizer. That being said, give yourself a little time for this to absorb before going to bed!

  • Smoothed my skin!

    Annie November 23, 2020

    I’ve been using this product for a month or so and it has not dissapointed! In my earlier twenties acne was the issue, since turing 26 I no longer suffer from acne… But my skin has gotten bumpy, especially my cheeks. A consistent skincare routine and this balm has smoothed my skin tremendously, it feels/looks healthy and supple. The scent is unusal but I don’t hate it. It is herbal but also kind of fruity? The color blue of the balm is beautiful and feels like such a treat to use. A little goes a long way, use with the JR Hydrating Accelerator 🙂

  • glowing

    Angie D. September 05, 2020

    I pretty much stick to K8s products. I didn’t even know Josh Rosebrook existed until I watched a youtube video with Caroline Hirons. I have problems with scents in my skincare products. I thought I will give the vital balm cream a shot. The scent didn’t give me any problems and my skin felt soft, plump, and elastic. Also my skin was glowing. This cream is a winner and I don’t understand how it is not well known by the average person. This will remain a part of my skincare. Thank you Josh Rosebrook, this is a brilliant product

  • You need this if you live in Wisconsin

    Hannah April 08, 2020

    This balm has been saving my dry Wisconsin skin. I love using this at night as my last skincare step. It smells amazing and leaves my skin with a nice glow. In the morning, it is fully soaked in and I feel like a new person.

  • deeply moisturizing perfect for dry to normal skin

    Marie April 06, 2020

    absolutely love this product. Before finding this face cream, only Nivea’s fatty white cream would moisturize my dry skin enough during winter months but this cream does wonders and your skin completely obsorbs all moisturize leaving it deeply nourished!

  • A lovely, beautiful texture .... such a treat!

    Hilary B. January 19, 2020

    I would describe this as a “whipped balm” more so than a cream because it gives more of a balm-like finish. I appreciate the entire sensorary experience of a product and this checks all the boxes – beautiful color, ethereal smell, perfect cloud-like texture. my skin works best with rich, plumping and hydrating creams. Vital Balm is perfect for my dry/combo, maturing skin in the winter and I tend to use it just in the areas I need it ( cheeks, chin and around the nose and lips) It’s a bit too thick to use every night all over my face for my particular skin, but I do use it nightly on my chest. Appreciate the smaller size, as that’s all I need and this will certainly continue to be a regular winter purchase.

  • great for dry skin!

  • Amazing cream!

    Anna January 08, 2020

    I LOVE this cream – my sister has it and I have been wanting to get it for a while. It is super hydrating, and makes my skin feel great. I use it at night as it is quite heavy, and it makes my skin glow! The only thing to note is it really is a very small amount, so quite pricey for the amount of cream – but I still absolutely love it!

  • Turned My Skin Bright Red

    Rachel F. December 28, 2019

    Put it on and my skin turned bright red immediately, it looked like I had a horrible sunburn. After about an hour my skin was still red, so I washed it off and haven’t used it again since. Super disapointing!

  • Pretty good but odd smell

    Tori December 21, 2019

    This is the first night cream I’ve used, so I’m not sure if this is typical or not, but it doesn’t absorb very well, so I’m sure a lot rubs off on my pillow. It also has a very odd bubblegum/liquorice smell which might bother some people. However, my skin stays well hydrated overnight and that’s all I wanted!

  • Big Fan!

    Nathalia December 20, 2019

    I was looking for a moisturizer to mostly wear at night and this balm is amazing. A little goes a long way and the balm spreads very nicely. It keeps my skin smooth and has helped with dry skin during the colder months. Really great product!

  • amazing for my stubborn skin

    Pam November 05, 2019

    I have struggled with acne for 10+ years- two rounds of accutane and still have trouble with breakouts and dry skin. this is the first poison free face cream I have found (after trying sooo many) that keeps my face moisturized in the summer sun as an ocean lifeguard and also in the dry winter months recovering from the sun damage. It’s really worth the $ for me and I would recommend to anyone who struggles with dry flaky acne prone skin. Feels heavy but that’s because a tiny bit goes a long way.

  • Smells great, feels great, doesn't have a heavy impact

    Mary C. July 12, 2019

    Cool product but did nothing for my skin, will not buy again.

  • Great balm!

    Emily M. June 12, 2019

    Love this stuff so much! It’s a great balm for the skin at night. I wouldn’t wear it during the day but great for that good night time lather! Also has excellent healing properties with the blue tansy!

  • Good moisturizer

    Sara L. May 17, 2019

    I’ve just been using this cream for about a week, but so far I’m enjoying the results. The hydration is very good. It’s definitely rich enough for spring, summer, and fall, but I’m not sure whether it’s a winter cream. Time will tell.

  • Amazing balm!

    Sjr May 15, 2019

    After having a baby in the winter my skin was extra super dry and this balm was just the remedy. Highly recommend it! It works especially well with the accelerator mist. It left my skin looking so hydrated and happy.

  • Smell is Great, but not great for my skin

    Danelle Q. April 11, 2019

    I have very sensitive and dry winter skin. I used this product for 30+ days with Osea Cleanser and the Josh Rosebrook daily moisturizer with SPF and my skin rebelled. The balm does have a nice feel, was very absorbing, and a great smell. Unfortunately just not for my ultra sensitive skin.

  • Love this balm!

    Jill C. April 11, 2019

    This stuff saved my face throughout the dry winter, it is really soothing. It’s fairly heavy so I usually just wear it at night unless my skin was feeling super dry and needed some extra love during the day. It seems to be safe for sensitive skin, and a little goes a long way. I highly recommend it!

  • Really good stuff

    Alexandra G. April 08, 2019

    This balm is great it is very moisturizing but not greasy. I would recommend for very dry skin.

  • Great Moisturizer

    Kate A. March 16, 2019

    I love this moisturizer and it is moisturizing enough during the winter for my Saharan desert skin. It really works well and has a great scent to boot!

  • Dry at first, but melts into the skin

    A S. March 16, 2019

    Not sure about other review, may be that they got an older jar? But while the texture is a little crumbly at first, it melts right away into your face as you spread it. Though I don’t use it on it’s own, but use a face oil first, so maybe that’s helping it melt in? I just love it. I wish it were cheaper for the amount (only 3/4 oz, when most jars are 1 or 1.7 ozs), but it’s worth it to me. And I have tortuously dry skin. Love the smell as well, fresh + herbal. Can’t live without this.

  • Arrived opened

    April W. March 12, 2019

    I’m not sure if this only happened to me, but the product arrived with seal open and all dried up, even has dried away from the bottle.

  • Good!

    Tory D. March 07, 2019

    My first all natural moisturizer and even though I want to try others, I would buy this again. I have sensitive combo skin that’s constantly clogged. This feels light but feels really emollient and helps me achieve a dewy look.

  • I think we can do better

    Danni I. March 07, 2019

    This balm is very thick and dry and virtually impossible to smooth over my face. Smells good, yes, but I wouldn’t but it again.

  • Love!

    Kasey February 19, 2019

    I started using this balm last winter and it was a life saver for the dry Utah climate. I have very sensitive skin in addition to combination skin. I didn’t have any reactions and it doesn’t make my skin too oily. A little goes a long way. Oh, and it smells so good!

  • LOVE it

    Sarah February 13, 2019

    I have super dry skin, the first day that I used it I had a mild reaction but since then it has been super hydrating and I love it.

  • Use as night cream

    Caitlyn February 03, 2019

    Loving this on top of my night serum. Great for the dry winter months!

  • The Best EVER

    Jesse February 01, 2019

    I have very dry skin and this is the moisturizer I always turn back to in the winter. It is moisturizing without being oily and it never clogs my pores. My skin literally glows after putting this on! Do yourself a favor and grab one if you’re struggling with dry/flaky skin.

  • Excellent

    Jessica C. January 26, 2019

    I love this product! It’s definitely helped bring down redness and irritation for me. I’ve noticed an improvement in my skin’s overall dryness, too. It created a protective barrier on my skin and stood up well to recent cold-snap where I live, combined with the overall dryness of the building where I work.

  • Creamy delight!

    Stephanie T. December 12, 2018

    I am a big fan of those balm. My batch seemed fluffier than when my mom has ordered in the past, and I’m a big fan. I have noticed it’s helping with some of my dry patches that I’m experiencing during my first Colorado winter.

  • sent down from heaven

    Emma W. December 11, 2018

    i’ve tried over 20 heavy moisturizers for my dry winter skin and this is legit sent from heaven. i’ve never been so glowy or moisturized. it feels so amazing and i put a little extra around my eyes. best night cream i could ever ask for!

  • Soothing

    Jenna M. December 11, 2018

    I have eczema but my face has combination skin, oily Tzone and dry everywhere else. So far, this product moisturizes and soothes my face and neck really well and I love the way it smells! I haven’t noticed any dramatic skin changes yet.

  • Smells DELICIOUS

    Courtney E. December 01, 2018

    I love the smell of this product. It feels a little thick going on the skin so it’s great for normal to dry skin types. The product leaves a little bit of a dewy sheen and who doesn’t love a little dumpling dew drop glow!! 5 stars.

  • Dry Skin Game-Changer

    Dani S. November 27, 2018

    I use the vital balm cream every night before I go to sleep. It saves me in the winter! It helps my skin lock in moisture and even reduces acne. I go through 4 jars every winter! Highly recommend.

  • Love it

    Franco November 26, 2018

    This is my go to exfoliator for a twice a weeker night time . I love the texture and the way it smells. This leaves my skin feeling smooth and hydrated all at once.

  • Clumps

    Kathy D. November 14, 2018

    I don’t like this at all . Smell is awful . It clumps on my skin . I don’t know what the fuss is about .

  • Great for winter skin

    Meghan M. November 12, 2018

    I tend to dry out as soon as the cold hits and heat turns on – and just bought my second tub of this magic blue potion. Great for night wear and smells great.

  • Slightly irritating

    Laura M. October 07, 2018

    I tried this product for nighttime in combination with the Complete Moisture Cleanse and while using the Nutrient Day Cream during the day. This was my least favorite of the three, as it irritated my skin and caused slight redness.

  • Don’t know what the hoopla is about .

    Kathy September 13, 2018

    I am not impressed with this at all. Does nothing for my skin and is not moisturizing at all .

  • Only night moisturizer I use now

    Madeline T. September 04, 2018

    I love the vital balm cream, it’s the only night moisturizer I use now. It smells absolutely amazing, and the balm texture is amazing.

  • Rich

    Elizabeth D. August 24, 2018

    Smells amazing and hydrates and plumps my skin.

  • Love this cream!

    Faith W. August 07, 2018

    My skin is very dry since I live at altitude ( above 7000 ft). This super rich cream absorbs beautifully and makes my shin look and feel nourished! Thumbs up!

  • Amazing

    Stephanie G. July 25, 2018

    This balm smells and feels so good on. Love everything josh rosebrook.

  • So lovely.

    Vanessa A. July 24, 2018

    Such a good cream, has such a luxe feeling and smell and is so great for my combo/acne/cystic prone skin!

  • LOVE this moisturizer

    Rebecca S. July 10, 2018

    This is wonderful product, my skin drinks it in! I just wish it came in a bigger container!

  • Lovely

    Audrey M. June 04, 2018

    I love the consistency, feel, smell, and even the color of this cream. It works well to moisturize my drier areas and I haven’t had any break outs or sensitivity. Even though it looks and feels like a cream at first it’s more of a balm once you put it on your face, it can look oily so a little goes a long way. I’d probably prefer to use this in the winter rather than the summer especially if wearing under make up.

  • Instant hydration

    Catherine H. May 23, 2018

    love the vital balm cream. Instantly gave my skin a healthy hydrated glow. Looking forward to using it with the Hydrating Accelerator. First time using Josh Rosebrook products and I am impressed. I’ve been a loyal Eminence girl for years.and looking forward to trying more or similar products with organic plant products. My work is nutrition for growing plants I love using safe and organic plants on my skin.

  • Nice, nice, nice!

    Christie R. May 22, 2018

    This balm is wonderful. Just a little bit goes a long way & feels super after applied. Nice fragrance. Just bought my second jar. Wish it came in a larger jar.

  • Excellent Product

    Christy O. May 22, 2018

    Between the heavenly smell and the decadent, whipped texture…. I could have mistaken this formula for dessert! Having used the product for a little over a month now, I can confidently speak to its efficacy, as well. The balm melts on beautifully, and moisturizes so perfectly. I don’t wake up with a jawline of dry, flaky skin anymore. One thing to note is that it does take some massaging if you don’t want to look oily. I appreciate the encouragement though, because my skin and fascia really benefit from the extra love. I highly recommend this product!

  • Super Moisturizing

    Maureen N. May 16, 2018

    A very thick moisturizer, yet it doesn’t feel thick when applied. It feels very hydrating on the skin. I use it every night and my skin feels so soft in the morning.

  • Katherine D. May 08, 2018
  • Very hydrating

    Rona L. April 24, 2018

    I’m really liking this cream. It’s hydrating without making me oily. I have really oily and also sensitive skin that clogs up easily. This cream gently nourishes my skin without causing any complications with my pores.

  • Amazing for skin issues

    Sarah S. April 18, 2018

    I bought this cream after researching the benefits of blue tansy oil for skin conditions like rosacea. I was recently diagnosed and have been trying everything possible to combat the redness on my cheeks. Josh’s Vital Balm has been amazing for reducing the redness and smoothing out the skin. It leaves my skin plumped and glowing. This cream will be a forever staple in my routine.

  • A Heavenly Moisture Whip

    Christy O. April 03, 2018

    The velvety, whipped texture is so luxurious! And the smell is divine. This balm provides deeper moisture and less of a greasy feel than other, much pricier balms with which I have experimented. Excellent price point and beautiful, simple packaging. Highly recommend!

  • Luxurious.

    Lisa C. March 22, 2018

    I really like using this balm cream at night and love the smell. It doesn’t absorb instantly, but it’s not very hard to rub in, either. I don’t know if it’s psychological, but the blue tint seems to have a calming/relaxing effect. The jar it comes in is very sturdy and cute, but I wish it was a couple ounces larger for the price.

  • Amazing!

    Suzanne W. March 13, 2018

    I have a pink complexion that is sensitive to products and dries our quickly. I’ve tried so many different lotions, balms, oils and creams and nothing really does the job. I absolutely love this product though. It feel likes whipped cream and actually makes my skin look healthy and bright. I can put it on before bed and not wake up feeling dried out. Smells very nice too.

  • Super hydrating

    Joann S. March 06, 2018

    Such a moisturizing balm for the wintertime! A little goes a long way.

  • great as nighttime occlusive

    Elise B. February 16, 2018

    This is a lovely product to seal in your moisturizing at night, or as a nighttime moisturizer on its own. I find it definitely too heavy/oily in its consistency for daytime, though the white does rub in. The extra is nice to rub into your cuticles, which is a bonus.

  • Smells Bad

    Leslie H. February 15, 2018

    For me, the smell is really bad. Because it’s a balm, it’s hard to spread across your face like a moisturizer. I’ve continued to use it but wouldn’t purchase it again.

  • Like it, but not sure if I absolutely love it

    Jessica B. February 14, 2018

    When I first opened the container, I was slightly disappointed to find that the product was somewhat separated- but this could be due to the fact that it was delivered in the winter in below freezing temps. Also, the texture is a bit like mousse which was also unexpected, and can sometimes be difficult to spread over my face after using a toner. I find that I’m using up my small container really quickly because of this! I like how it makes my face glisten, but I definitely wouldn’t use this as a day cream or around my eyes. Despite this, I think the product works fairly well- my skin feels nourished when I wake up.

  • Not for super sensitive skin

    Lauren B. February 13, 2018

    I have incredibly sensitive/reactive skin and this irritated it a bit.

    • From Follain:

      Hi Lauren, so sorry to hear this irritated you a bit! Definitely email us at if you need help with another suggestion specific to your skin type. Check out the Blue Cocoon- it’s great for sensitive skin!

  • Joann S. February 13, 2018
  • A disappointment for me

    Grace B. February 08, 2018

    After a few years of having this product on my to-try/wish list, I was sadly disappointed. I found it to be too thick and it just sat on top of my skin rather than sinking in. I also found the smell to be overpowering and unpleasant. I know some people love this product, but it wasn’t for me.

    • From Follain:

      Hi Grace, I’m sorry to hear this wasn’t the right pick for your skin! The Osea Advanced Atmosphere Protection Cream is another great option for dry skin and has a light scent!

  • Skin Reaction

    Ulrike S. January 29, 2018

    This balm sounded so promising for my dry, sensitive skin. The reviews on this site and others were overwhelmingly positive. Unfortunately, my skin reacted to this cream: I get red splotchy patches that feel hot and itchy shortly after applying this cream balm. The reaction disappears within an hour, but it is still unpleasant enough that I will be returning this. Although the product is natural, I’m guessing I happen to react to one of the ingredients nonetheless.

    • From Follain:

      Hi Ulrike, I’m so sorry one of the ingredients caused an irritation! This moisturizer is amazing for dry skin types as the rich texture is super nourishing! If you tend to be more on the sensitive side, I would recommend something with less essential oils like the Blue Cocoon.

  • Vital Medicine Cabinet Must Have

    Asia B. January 24, 2018

    I bought this to try when I read the description of being a must-have item and I have to agree. I’m on my second jar of it. I like to mix it in my palm with a few drops of the PAI Rosehip oil before bed. My skin feels smooth, dewey and fresh after use.

  • Good Balm

    Alex C. January 21, 2018

    I like this product, especially for its price point. A little goes a long way. I have tried many moisturizers at Follain and this is not my favorite but it is very hydrating. My son got bad eczema around his eyes this winter because it is so dry (he is a swimmer so some of that is from goggles) and I tried this balm on him and it really calmed his skin. In less than 24 hours and three applications later, his skin is much less red, itchy and flaky.

  • Keeps Dry Skin at Bay

    Kate M. January 17, 2018

    I really like this product, it is definitely meant for dry sensitive skin. I have combo skin so I only use it when the season changes to winter. It is very cooling on dry skin which I liked and you only need a small amount for your face. I also used it when I was very sick with a cold and it completely kept any chapped nose at bay! It was worth it for that alone!

  • Amazing!

    Brooke W. January 16, 2018

    This cream is very rich, I use it over the beauty oil (also by Follain). My skin has never felt so smooth.

  • YES!!

    Jesse W. January 10, 2018

    This lotion is a dream. You only need a very small amount and your entire face/neck is covered. The texture is amazing- creamy! – and it’s extremely moisturizing yet not at all oily. Perfect for a dry winter!!

  • great

    Sapna A. January 04, 2018

    My skin has been dry recently and this is the first cream I found that I can apply and not feel greasy. I’m happy with my purchase

  • Hydration, hydration!

    Abigail L. January 01, 2018

    This feels great and does wonders for winter dryness. It has similar qualities to the Blue Cocoon with the blue tansy at a fraction of the cost. Will definitely get again!

  • Luxurious

    Momo December 09, 2017

    Goes on smoothly, feels very moisturizing but not sticky or thick. It gives a somewhat dewy look. I only need a pea size for my whole face. It has a bluish tint from the blue tansy. I’m very happy to have found this brand and Follain has been great, very accommodating. Thank you!

  • Smells amazing, so moisturizing

    Meredith F. November 30, 2017

    This cream smell so amazing and makes my skin feel moisturized even in the dry winter New England air. Love it!

  • Great cream

    Kelley C. November 15, 2017

    Smells amazing, gentle, not too greasy or thick. Makes your skin feel soft and fresh in the morning!

  • Love!

    Lj October 07, 2017

    I have very dry skin and struggle to find a cream that’s moisturizing enough, but not too greasy or heavy — this is it! I use it over a serum at night and in the morning (though in the morning I have to leave time to let it sink in before applying makeup). For the first time in ages my face doesn’t feel dry and tight. Highly recommend!

  • blue wonder

    Jacqueline A. October 01, 2017

    really impressed with this cream. it’s definitely more of a cream than a balm and it’s so moisturizing and nourishing and calming. i use it as a night cream and can tell the my skin is more calm and overall happy in the morning. a little bit goes a very long way too.
