Balm Balm Little Miracle Rosehip Serum

Balm Balm Little Miracle rosehip serum

I adore organic beauty products and recently I have been testing out several new brands to find skincare that is both green and affordable. While browsing for a new face oil, I came across the Little Miracle Rosehip Serum by Balm Balm. I was rather curious about the brand as I have never tried anything by Balm Balm before and at a mere £14.50 (about $18 / €16) a bottle it certainly met the affordability criterium. So, is this a little miracle?

This Works: In Transit Camera Close-Up

In Transit Camera close-up thisworks

If a brand claims a particular product does just about everything at once, I am usually rather sceptical. You know the type I mean: the serum that miraculously deals with twelve different issues at once. Usually, these products just leave me disappointed, even if they are actually quite nice, because they simply don’t live up to the bold claims on the packaging.  So, I approached the In Transit Camera Close-Up by Thisworks with caution as this claims to be a mask,moisturiser, and primer in one.

Ruby Red Lipstick: the natural way

Bellapierre Cosmetics Natural Mineral Lipstick Ruby Red

When it comes to my skincare, I prefer organic brands but that is far trickier when it comes to make-up. Part of me would love to switch to completely natural, but until major drugstore and luxury brands come aboard I just can’t see it happening. I would miss that new Charlotte Tilbury lippy or Dior blush a little too much.

Vanilla Bliss: Antipodes Vanilla Pod Day Cream

Antipodes Vanilla Pod Hydrating Day Cream

A great fragrance isn’t a true necessity for a skincare product, some with sensitive skin would even argue against it. One of the reasons I adore natural skincare is because they often smell amazing using completely natural ingredients that don’t tend to produce any nasty reactions. A nice fragrance can make all the difference for a product and I have yet to find a greater example than the Vanilla Pod Hydrating Day Cream.
