I have fallen back in love with an old Favourite that came into my life a few years ago. I had a few pots, loved it and then moved on to pastures new. But recently this old flame has popped back into my everyday routine again. Today I am talking about the Liz Earle Superbalm.
The Liz Earle range is a favourite of mine and I am also at the moment using and enjoying the orange flower body wash. I am a massive cleanse and polish fan and use it religiously, so I know the products in the line are good. The superbalm is a multi purpose product used to condition nails, lips and cuticles. I have the small 5g pot as I find it easier to pop in your bag than the larger pot you can buy.
Fragrance wise it is strong and it tastes strong on the lip. To me it smells herbally, I will say this is not a smell my husband likes. I can take it or leave it. It is not unpleasant to me. It is made from pure plant oils such avocado oil and lavender, plus shea butter. The consistency is waxy at first but it melts as you rub it between your fingers and apply it.
As it is multi purpose you can use it in many ways, here are some of my favourites..
1. As a cuticle treatment and to soften the skin around the nails. I hate dry bitty skin that appears around the edge of the nail, this is brilliant at softening and nourishing that problem skin.
2. As a lip balm. I will say this is not the most moisturising lip balm in the universe but it does do a good job of protecting the skin, especially in harsh weather.
3. I have read that some women apply superbalm to their eyelashes to condition them. I have tried this and it was fine but I am not 100% sure it is safe to use on the eye area, I would hate for someone to try this and get a hideous eye infection and then curse me, so please research this further before you try it!!!
4. As a balm for the nose! This sounds weird but it works. If you get a big old Rudolph nose every time you get a cold, just like I do, apply a layer of Superbalm to the nostrils and problem solved.
5. I get dry elbows and I find that a thick layer of balm before bed gets rid of any dry patches.
6.If your hair is flyaway like mine a tiny amount of superbalm works well to take away any frizz, just avoid the root area so you don’t look too greasy.
I am sure if you look into it there are a lot more ways to use your little wonder pot, but these are the ways I like to use it. If you want to try it for yourself head over to the Liz Earle website and take a look, I will put the link here.
Superbalm cost me £5 for a small pot. This is going to last you for ages and as it is multi purpose it is very economical.
