Possibly acne/allergy/troubling for some ingredients?
It’s quite heavy in shea butter
Essential oils

What’s not in it?
mineral oil

Tested on animals/sells in China?
No. And certified organic by the relevant authority in New Zealand – Assure Quality Ltd.

Who is it for?
Dry/dehydrated and normal. It’s possibly a tad too rich for oily/acne although doing research there are reviews around to say the opposite…

How do you use it?
As any balm. Apply, massage in, remove with a flannel.

First or second/only cleanse?
It removes everything except waterproof for me…It’s a good balm though so I would probably go second cleanse or morning cleanse (you’d only need the teeniest amount though)

What’s good/not so good about it?
For the organic lovers out there, this is right up your street.
It’s a lovely, thick balm, that due to its ingredients, is prone to this granular appearance…..

It gives a mild exfoliation when it’s like this – although I have also seen ones that are completely smooth. Balms will frequently have this appearance – Eve Lom does the same thing. Depends on where you live and the temperature for the most part….
This is a lovely skin cleanser, but it will remove makeup if you want to use it for that. I think The Organic Pharmacy pips this for luxurious use, but Antipodes is half the price so….
