Review: Trilogy Everything Balm

Everything Balm_Productonly_

 

 

Well the names says it all -“Everything Balm” really is for everything, and in this economic climate its always a bonus to be able to purchase a product that is so  multi-useful. Another plus is the completely environmentally friendly packaging, 100% natural active fair trade ingredients and fragrances and no animal testing.

“Everything in here is real and natural and has no preservatives, creating beauty that is only skin deep, because no-one really cares about having good looking tonsils.”

This multi-tasker helps to save you time and money, its a great moisturiser for all skin types. Helps to hydrate your skin, great for the body, chapped lips, nails and cuticles, as a massage oil and also can be used to sooth nappy rash ( an alternative to mineral oil based baby care).

everythingbalm2One of the great things about the Everything Balm is the packaging, besides the cute little pouch it comes in it also features a spatula which makes it hygienic to scoop out what you need and doesn’t contaminate the rest of the tub! I found this very appealing as I use it mainly on my heels and lips. ( you are probably aware by now how I can be a tad OCD where hygiene is concerned)

If you have ever tried the Elizabeth Arden 8hour cream (still also a firm favourite as well) I would compare it to that, yes that’s how good it is!

I have been using this for well over a month now and I’ve barely used much at all, I can see this lasting a long time. All you need is a tiny scoop because when you heat it up in your hands it spreads very well.

This can be bought in two handy sizes the 95ml $30AUD(this is huge and will last a VERY long time, pictured) and 45ml $18AUD(perfect for travelling with). The ingredients include: 100% free-range honey, coconut oil, marula oil, rosehip oil, extra virgin olive oil, jojoba oil and evening primrose oil.

everythingbalmI could possibly go on and on about how impressed I am with the product but I don’t want to ramble on forever. Instead I’ll leave you with another picture of the product.

Update

So recently I did two guest reviews for two different but equally awesome blogs. I reviewed the new Sunpouch and also Benefit’s new Stay Don’t Stray If you would like to check them out links below

Also I have been trailing a few new goodies to review and I did a new video last night I need to edit. Hopefully it will be useable because I’m fairly sure the lighting sucked!

I did the makeup for a local Suicide Girls photo shoot, which was pretty cool! We were both happy with the results!

So there is plenty of things coming up, so stay tuned!

NOTD – Orly Sterling Silver Rose

orly sterling rose pink

I wore this colour all last week and forgot to take a picture! So luckily (or not so lucky) my sister decided she would steal it so I got a photo of her wearing it.

I love this colour. Why I love it, well I seem to have a habit of only using obnoxious colours (in your face green…..) this is a really nice girly pink without being ‘too girly’ and will be more appropriate for what some might say ‘regular wear’.

My sister decided after stealing this and loving the formula drying quickly , (which I have to agree I didn’t bump my nails!!)  that it  was the best nail polish ever and no doubt has inspired her to ‘borrow’ more of my stuff.

Note: this is with no topcoat and have been worn a couple of days before I saw her to take the photo.

When I wore it I used the Orly Glosser topcoat, and I loved it. I have been wearing it over the OPI Jade is the new black this week too!
