Balmonds Natural Skincare Review and Giveaway

Balmonds Natural Skincare Review and Giveaway

As you will know by now I love skin care products.  Whether it is a cream or a serum I am always eager to try a new product.

I was recently contacted by Balmonds skin care range, asking if I would like to review their skin care products.

About Balmonds

They are a family run business, set up by a mother looking to find a cream that would suite her daughters itchy dry skin.

Natalie Balmond began experimenting in her kitchen with traditional recipes for moisturisers. That were able to be used on very sore and itchy skin.  As both conventional and alternative creams aggravated her daughters chronic eczema.

Her daughter had been using a pharmaceutical emollients and steroid creams prescribed by her GP and dermatologists.  But these stung and irritated her skin.  They tried various other alternative creams but these irritated her skin also.

Natalie started experimenting by cooking traditional ointments and salves , using combinations of herbs and oils such as hemp, calendula, nettle and olive which have been used in skin care for centuries.  This is where she came up with a salve that was soft and gentle and worked really well to moisturise and hydrate her daughters sensitive skin.  This same salve is now known as Skin Salvation.

 

The Products

Skin Salvation

Skin Salvation – Rich, oil-based and made with beeswax to lock in the moisture that dry skin desperately needs.   The ointment can be used by all ages (from six weeks old) and on all skin types all over the body. As this is made with natural ingredients it reduces the risk of skin irritations and itchiness.  Suitable for those who suffer with eczema, dermatitis, psoirasis and other dry skin complaints – prices start from £7.99

Daily Moisturising Cream

Daily Moisturising Cream – A lighter moisturising cream than the one above, still made with the same ingredients but instead of the beeswax, this has been replaced with a lighter shea butter.  Suitable for any ages and can be used on its own or alongside the ointment.  Again this is suitable for those who suffer with eczema, dermatitis, psoirasis and other dry skin complaints – from £13.99

bath and body oil

Bath and Body Oil – A natural emollient oil made from a unique blent of super nutritious botanical, suitable for anywhere on the body and for all skin types and ages from 6 weeks old.  This products is very versatile product, which is a blend of naturally nourishing oils – £12.99

You can use for

  • A shaving oil
  • massage oil
  • after a shower to lock in moisture
  • a facial cleansing oil

Intensive Hand Cream

Intensive Hand Cream – This is a deeply-nourishing gentle cream formulated to keep hard working hands healthy and hydrated.  The shea butter based cream works both as a protective barrier and as a super nutritious boost for the skin – from £10.99

Baby Range

There is also a baby range of all natural products featuring Baby Balm – £8.99 which is great for many uses including cradle cap and nappy rash.  Also Chamomile Baby Oil – £11.99, a beautifully calming natural alternative to other baby bath products you can buy.

My Thoughts

I have used these products myself, plus sharing with my Mum and Daughter.  My hands were a little dry and the intense hand cream really made a huge difference.  My Mum also loved this and the balm which as she has recently returned from holiday she is using to nourish her skin.

I used the bath and body oil on my daughter, I poured some into her bath and the massaged some into her legs for her as she has pain in them, which she said felt nice and helped a bit.  Which for her means it is a good product.

If you suffer with dry skin or irritated skin I would recommend all these products which can be found on their site, plus if you used code MUM20 you can receive 20% off your entire order.
