Our approach to balms is a little like Toula’s dad’s stance on Windex in My Big Fat Greek Wedding: apply it to anything – anything, at all – for instant relief. Got a rash? Balm. Puffy eyes? Balm. Dealing with a breakup? Balm.
After all, if your skin is dehydrated, dull and distressed like ours (lucky us, right?), you’ll often need something more nourishing than a lightweight lotion. Think of balms as heartier, more concentrated, solid forms of your favourite ingredients, ready to break down and get to work once massaged into the skin.
And, unlike lots of liquid formulas, they also generally don’t contain any water, so a little goes a long way, meaning you’re always getting more bang for your (balm) buck.
