With fashion month and the fall season right around the corner, keeping your skin healthy is of the utmost importance. Yes, downing bottles of water(8 cups you guys!) and regular exercise does wonders, but sometimes we all need a little help from our friends. Enter Belle Butters’ Beau Balm.
I’m not going to lie, I haven’t always been the most beauty/skincare/grooming-conscious individual in the world. But the flip side is, I’ve been pretty lucky in that I lived in the South where the heat kept the sweat going and I had a decent diet. But now, I live in New York where pollution, grime and dry air lurk around every corner. The wind — and last winter — will take a toll on your skin and leave you looking cracked and your skin UTTERLY parched, which, needless to say, is not chic.
So when I got my hands on this $22 container of Beau Balm, and started to watch it work, you can imagine how pleased I was. I’ve used moisturizers for a very long time, don’t get me wrong, but since opening this multi-purpose — moisturizes skin and hair, treats scarring, serves as pre- and post-shave treatment — product made for men(but ladies can use it too) of abyssinian oil, cherry kernel oil and eucalyptus oil, I haven’t picked up another. Sadly though, I’ve just run out.
The thing I like about it, is it’s truly a balm, solid in the container and softens when in contact with heat. I slather it on right after a shower and it gives me a smooth slight glow that will never be confused with the slick, almost plastic-like sheen that some moisturizers will have you sporting(note: there’s nothing wrong with that, but I just prefer a slight matte finish). The fact that it’s all natural, makes it a must-buy!
What do you think? Will you or your beau be trying Belle Butters’ Beau Balm? Pick it up here.
PS. They also have it in a body oil.
