Robin Skincare Calendula Repair Balm – 50g (£12.95)
So if you’re already familiar with using a facial serum, oil or balm then this one is definitely worth giving some attention. My first review for Robin Skincare (formally Woadworks Botanicals), a small artisan, natural skincare company based in Cumbria.
Calendula oil has long been regarded for its anti-inflammatory and anti-irritation properties. Making this balm particularly popular for people with sensitive skin. This balm also contains Chamomile which is another plant revered for its anti-inflammatory properties.
Truly a jack-of-all-trades, the applications for this balm are endless. Here are a few suggestions.
Chapped lips – use it as a lip salve to rehydrate, moisturiser and sooth sore chapped lips without the use of petrochemicals.
Dry knees and elbows – apply a small amount onto dry skin where hydration is required.
Facial balm – instead or in addition to your moisturiser, apply a tiny amount into the palm of your hands, warm together then apply to the face. The calendula will help calm irritation and the Olive oil, bees wax and shea butter will moisturise dehydrated skin.
Hand and Foot Balm – scoop out a small amount into the hands and massage into dry feet. Pop your socks back on and allow the balm to soak into your feet over night.
The balm has near zero fragrance and a natural cream colour. The solid waxy texture quickly melts with the warmth of your skin. The ingredients are, as you’d expect, all natural using no colourings, fragrances, preservatives or unnecessary fillers.
The biggest ingredient in the pot is Olive Oil infused with Calendula petals and Bees Wax. Shea Butter, Evening Primrose oil and Chamomile oil. That’s it! So if your skin needs moisture or gently calming down, I’d highly recommend giving this a try.
Ingredients: Olea europea oil infused with Calendula officialis petals; Cera alba; Butyrospermum parkii butter, Oenothera biennis oil, Chamomilla recutita (matricaria) flower oil* * May contain limonene which is a natural constituent of the essential oil.
