Review: Botanicals Orange Blossom Body Balm

And here we continue with my obsession with Botanicals... This time looking at the Orange Blossom Body Balm*. Here we have a small jar of sunflower and shea based balm, perfect for moisturising post-bath or shower. And seeing so it's from Botanicals, you can be sure that it's made from only the highest quality organic (certified by the Soil Association) ingredients that will truly nourish your skin.

The shea butter is significant for me as I have found the ingredient to be highly effective when it comes to moisturising without the dreaded greasy feel. When applied to damp skin, shea butter almost completely sinks in to the skin, leaving a gentle glow. And this oil base with the addition of the wonderful scents of orange blossom, patchouli and neroli essential oils means that this is a truly deliciously smelling product. Botanicals are really starting to take the position as one of my favourite brands and this is another brilliant offering from them. 

As mentioned, I love to apply this after getting out the shower. I've never been the best person for remembering to moisturise my body but I find that this method (and keeping my products in the bathroom), really help to remind me. And how can I not want to moisturise with a product this good?! It really does sink in super fast and I find that I can get dressed in minutes without the worry of transfer. 

I've had a bit of difficulty with getting the product out of the jar but that's mainly down to it being a smaller sample size. Other than that I had absolutely no issues with the packaging and it does look super classy on your shelf... 

I definitely suggest checking this one out if you're looking for a new body moisturisier, and definitely check Botanicals out if you're looking for super good quality organic & vegan products at a fair price.

Have you tried anything from Botanicals lately?
