Calendula Remedy Balm – Review
Before we begin, we would like to state that we were gifted this product for an honest review.
As soon as I hopped onto the Herbal Hiraeth website, I knew I was in the right place. I am very into natural and herbal everything, especially when it comes to my skin. Opening up the website just overwhelms you with such calmness and a feeling of being with nature.
After clicking onto the Calendula Remedy Balm and having a read of the description of what this product does, one thing jumped out at me: ‘lip balm’. Now, this amazing balm does so many more things. In fact you can use it for pretty much anything – after sun treatment, moisturiser, even a makeup remover – but I have struggled with lips drier than the Sahara Desert for a very long time, so of course this is what appealed to me most. I have tried absolutely everything on my lips – every kind of balm under the sun, lip scrubs, even lip masks, but nothing comes close to repairing these cracked ol’ things. At least until now.
As I swiped a small amount of product across my lip, I am not kidding when I say this, I felt instant relief. It was like a brush of hydration and I could feel it absorbing and revitalising, I didn’t think it could be true. As it was seeping into my lips I couldn’t help but wonder how long it would last – will the bliss be short lived? Regular lip balms last about 25 minutes maximum on my lips before they’re totally and utterly dry and feel horrible again, so I was sceptical.
I put it on at 9.30am and went to work for the day. At 5pm I walked over to my car and hopped on in – my normal routine after work is to lather up with any lip balm I can reach to relieve my lips from that horrible cracked feeling. It wasn’t until I got home and reached for my balm to bring inside that I realised I didn’t reapply afterwards. It had actually worked. Maybe a once off? I couldn’t tell. But I lapped up that feeling in case it didn’t last.
For a full week I tried this product so I could give my full thoughts on it. So here’s where I’m at:
*Every day I have applied the balm to my lips before I apply my makeup for the day and then a very small amount again before I go into work to ensure it lasts me all day. I also pop it on before I go to bed after I’ve done my regular skin care routine. My lips feel INCREDIBLE! I truly think I’ve found my miracle product, the one thing that I will recommend to anyone and everyone and that I will always have with me.
I also thought I would test the products moisturising properties on another dry part of my skin – my elbows. Not something people generally talk about I know, but my elbows have always been very,very dry. I applied the Calendula Remedy Balm to one elbow for 3 days, whilst doing nothing to my other elbow. By the end of it I truly felt a difference! Typically they feel quite chalky and very cracked, but this balm really does it all and was definitely not what I was expecting when I opened the lid! My left elbow felt smoother and no way near as cracked as my right. It really is a miracle product and I really can’t recommend it enough!
So to put all that into one sentence, you need the Calendula Remedy Balm in your life. No questions about it!
A massive thank you to Herbal Hiraeth for introducing this incredible product to my life, I am so excited to keep using it!
