First impressions, its smells luscious! So I scooped out about half a teaspoon, not used a balm before so was guessing! This seemed to be enough, I warmed it up in my hands and it became like a thick oil. I massaged it into my skin for a minute or two, releasing the lovely fresh scent.
I was quite concerned when I washed my hands to open the packet the cloth came in and it seemed to not want to wash away! I hate the feeling of stuff being oily on my face. But I soaked the cloth in hot water and gently rubbed my face in circular motions and after 2 goes of this I then followed on with cold as suggested.
Whilst I did feel slightly like there was an oily film on my face I just massaged gently and after half an hour my face just felt soft and clean.
Will this take the place of my favourite facial oil? Not sure yet, but the smell of this is much nicer than this http://www.dhcuk.co.uk/DHC/ProductDetail.aspx?ProductID=300 which is amazing, but stinks!
Time will tell with the balm, especially tonight when I take my make-up off! Looking forward to trying the moisturiser balm, that will be reviewed separately.
