One Love Organics Skin Savior Waterless Balm


Some apothecaries get it, a rare few don’t. Tapping into the creative blends of simple ingredients is an effective and cool way to make persistent balms and freshen up a wardrobe of vanity essentials. Skin Savior’s Multi Use Waterless Balm ($68) does just that.

Without any filler additives, the balm uses virgin coconut oil and mango seed butter fortified with basic bees and orange peel waxes to combat seasonally stressed out skin. Like most eco-friendly products, you won’t find any ridiculous spelled chemicals here, which prevent skin from reaping pure moisture. Instead, a medley of cold-pressed oils absorb quickly leaving no oily residue behind. Among the ingredients, the chia seed extracts bring natural emollients, high oxidative ability, and curative healing attributes with its high concentrations of Omega 3's. It also reduces degeneration of skin cells and restores elasticity.

The healing balm is made with a light touch, a bit fizzy, with delicious freshness and a charming "slather me now" quality. And, it comes with a BFF – a supersoft, derm grade mircrofiber chamois to help slide off the day’s grime n’ gunk, should you choose to use try their double-cleansing method, which is based on the simple theory that 'likes dissolve like.' I watered up to find the balm emulsifies into a pampering water-activated oil cleanser that dissolves even the most stubborn eye makeup while protecting skin's natural balance. And, yes a little dollop of balm goes a long way with the chamois, saving you bucks in the long run.

Zippy notes of coconut with a pinch of vanilla nicely complement the ethically sourced oils, and help the treatment double as a cutesy lip balm for multi-tasking consumers. A wonderfully sparkling balm that appeals immediately for its balanced texture and gourmand undercurrents. Because it comes in a 3.5 oz jar, it’s a treatment that won't accost you at the register.

It's like purity revamped.
