Laurel Skin's Day Balm is a waterless lightweight balm, concentrated in potent, bioavailable nutrients to protect the skin daily against external stressing factors and free radical damages, retaining hydration and moisture all day long.
Normal, dry or mature skins will enjoy its soft texture daily, combination skins will prefer using it for harsher weather conditions (for drying winter or summer's intense sun).
Its well-balanced blend of precious oils, wax and butter is easily melting into the skin. It offers cellular protection to help prevent ageing signs, UV damages or de-hydration, as well as balancing, anti-inflammatory and deeply hydrating properties. It is also very rich in vitamins & antioxidants as well as very high in healing essential fatty acids to repair the skin and even the complexion.
The numerous & carefully chosen plants extracts of this balm (Calendula, Comfrey, Nettle, Camomile, Licorice, Lemon Balm ...) help stimulate lymphatic flow, toxin elimination and collagen production, by supporting the connective tissue, being highly anti-inflammatory and healing. They are also very rich in Vitamins (B, C), minerals and antioxidants.
Organic essential oils of Sandalwood, Neroli, Carrot Seed and Lemon Balm add their moisturising and repairing properties to the mix, to brighten the skin, boosting its elasticity.
Indulge in this smooth and joyful balm in the morning, to protect and plump your skin all day long for a healthy glow.

Apply after your Elixir and Serum of choice.
Do not let water or moisture inside the jar. Keep in a cool, dark place.
What to do in case the balm melted ?
First rest assured, it is in no way ruined or less efficient. A change in texture does not affect the product performance. Now that you are reassured...
To restore it to the texture you love:
- if it is still liquid, place the whole jar in the freezer for 30 minutes. Et voilà!
- if it solidified again at room temperature leaving white grains (see note below *) and you prefer the original texture, place the closed jar in water-bath of low simmering water to allow the balm to melt slowly (do not heat to a boil, and do not allow water to get into the jar). Then place the slightly cooled jar and melted balm in the freezer for 30 minutes. Et voilà (again)!
* note on white grains forming in the balms: they are simply solid lipids. They melt at the touch and heat of your skin, and there is absolutely nothing wrong or bad with them. It doesn't affect the balm performance.
