Premae Harmony Face Balm

9 March 2012

Hey everyone! Today I have another review of an item from this months She Said Beauty box. I received the Premae Harmony Face Balm, and at first I was pretty upset because I really wanted the 'We Are Faux' lashes, as I am a total lash fiend. The packaging looked a bit cheap, but it is a sample, lets remember. However, after using this item, I'm actually quite happy it was in my box, as it's now a new item I've tried from a brand I didn't know before, and I've been really happy with the results.

I'd never actually used a face balm before, and when I saw the size of the sample, I thought it would only last one application. However, a little goes a long way with this product. This is definitely a balm and not a moisturiser..the texture is different and it feels a lot more oily and spa like on your skin. The smell of mango and lemongrass oozes out of the tin, and it really feels like a mini spa experience if you like. It is recommended to only use about a pea size amount and then moisturise onto your face. My face didn't feel greasy like I thought it would..more soothed, and the balm quickly worked its magic onto the skin and there wasn't any residue on my fingers. As I have dry skin, I was pleased to see that this balm is suitable for combination skin it's definitely worth giving this item a go. I've been using a little before bed each night, and I haven't had any signs of break outs and my skin feels quite moisturised and relaxed in the morning. I love the fact the balm is completely organic too.

I reckon I'd pay £18 for the full size of this. It might seem expensive for what it is, especially as it's not a designated moisturiser, buttt, it's almost like a spa product but not as expensive I guess, and it still gives you that relaxed feeling, especially with the gorgeous fragrances of the lemongrass and mango. Like I said, a little goes a long way with this product, and as you can see in the photo, I've still got 75% left I'd say, and I've been using it all week, so you would get your monies worth. A few other pros about Premae is it's 100% non tested on animals, vegan certified and used recycled materials for the packaging. Seeeee..everyone's a winner with this item ;)

Overall, I'm thoroughly impressed with this item, and I'm glad I got this instead of the lashes (who would have thought!) :)

  4. Love the sound of balms, but my skins combo and can be really temperamental depending what side of combo it wants to be, and I try avoid anything that may make me too oily. I love the sound of the mango scent though. mmm. xx
