A combination of plant oils including avocado, hazelnut and beeswax help hydrate and repair. When smoothed onto the face, this 100% natural nourishing balm dissolves into the skin to comfort even the driest of skins, leaving you with a supple, soft, smooth and bright complexion when you wake.

• Inhale the aroma of your deliciously-scented balm
• Apply to your cleansed face and neck, by massaging gently.

Suitable for all skin types and preservative-free. Also ideal to use as an SOS for insect bites, in-grown hairs and burns, and for nourishing the tips of your hair.
