Balance Me Stellar Balm Tin


Balance Me's stellar-by-name, stellar-by-nature beauty balm just got a pretty makeover. And not only does it have a new look (we love the mwah-mwah design), but the 10 ml size is travel- and handbag-perfect. (Gone straight into ours, it has.)

The favourite 100% natural, neroli-scented 'desert island must-have' of Balance Me's founders, Rebecca and Claire Hopkins, it performs almost too many tasks to list – but we'll give it a go...

Use Stellar Balm to smooth brows, as a barrier cream or with a dab on cheekbones as a highlighter. It is – unsurprisingly – great for dry lips, but also lavished onto the whole face overnight as an overnight hydrating mask. (The cocoa, shea and mango butters are gloriously skin-plumping.) 

It's great for dry cheeks, cuticles, heels and elbows – and for the nose area when you've got a cold (or a summery runny nose from hay fever). It also, we're told, calms itchy insect bites, thanks to the natural antiviral powers of May chang oil.

If you find any other uses, let us know – and we'll share them!

Meanwhile, we're delighted that this pot of wonder has had a mwah-mwah image makeover, and been downsized to make it even more handbag/pocket-friendly. Now there really is no excuse to leave home without it...
