    Blue Cactus Cooling Balm

    Rose Vetiver Harmonizing Balm

    Patchouli Frankincense Rejuvenation Balm


    Richer moisture than our Oil Serums. Silkier than our Whipped Shea Butters. More simple and minimalist than our Day Moisturizers. Our new Face Balms provide simple, protective nourishment and moisture to the skin.

    One of our favorite techniques for creating truly moisturized skin involves sealing in the lush moisture and hydration created through an application of Oil Serum & HydroSoul with an occlusive layer. Primarily, we have always chosen our Whipped Shea Butters for this. But over the last several years we found ourselves frequently recommending our customer-favorite Wild Carrot Nourishing Eye Balm as a sealing layer, and a simple all-over face moisturizer, so it felt only organic to develop a line of Face Balms for this purpose. 

    For the love of simple formulations and sealing moisture, we have expanded our family of portable Balms to offer more options with a greater diversity of benefits. We love our Face Balms best for dry & dehydrated skin, skin that likes simplicity or skin with a compromised hydrolipid barrier from possible overuse of exfoliants and acids, but they are friendly for all skin.

    Blue Cactus Cooling Balm

    Balm of Serenity

    Ideal for sensitive, reactive, dry & devitalized skin

     • Prickly Pear Seed Oil • Jojoba • Blue Tansy • Sandalwood • Ylang Ylang •

     

    A new addition to our cult-favorite Blue Cactus line. Like our whole family of Blue Cactus products, Blue Cactus Cooling Balm centers around three key ingredients, or as we like to think of them, three desert treasures —  Arizona-grown jojoba oil, prickly pear seed oil and the dreamy and soothing essential oil of blue tansy flowers. 
     

    This Balm is a dose of cooling and restorative desert moisture to quench and calm dry, flaky, sensitive and irritated skin. At its heart is prickly pear seed oil, a unique and nutrient-dense oil that is cold-pressed from the seeds of the opuntia cactus fruit. This potent oil contains the highest known amount of vitamin E of all plant oils (50% more than argan) along with polyphenols (antioxidants), phytosterols and vitamin K.

    On top of the immense antioxidant infusion from the prickly pear seed oil, Blue Cactus Cooling Balm delivers the tranquil peace of blue tansy essential oil —  skin savior to all irritated, reactive and sensitive skin. 

    These two botanical stars are supported by balancing jojoba, ylang ylang and serene sandalwood to create a Balm that is profoundly calming and replenishing to all skin.  

     

    Rose Vetiver Harmonizing Balm

    Balm of Adaptability

    Ideal for combination & dry skin

    • Rosehip Seed Oil • Jojoba • Vetiver • Rose Geranium  • Carrot Seed • Clary Sage •

     

    The most lightweight of our new Face Balms, Rose Vetiver Harmonizing Balm is graced by the same essential oil blend used in our cult-favorite Rose Vetiver Day Moisturizer, helping this simplified formula bring harmony to combination and dry skin. 

    At the heart of Rose Vetiver Harmonizing Balm is rosehip seed oil. This highly nutritive yet lightweight oil contains trans-retinoic acid (the precursor to true vitamin A), lycopene, phytosterols, and linoleic acid (omega 6) amongst a host of other compounds, making it a top contender for those looking to minimize the appearance of scarring and hyperpigmentation. 

    Vetiver roots are planted in areas of erosion to stabilize the ground by helping the soil to retain moisture, and it is this very quality that makes it such a special oil for skin care. Vetiver has a beautiful ability to assist the skin in moisture retention, while the scent can create a feeling of deep grounding and calm.
     

    Then we have rose geranium —  our favorite dermal adaptogen — which re-educates the sebaceous glands and helps the skin find balance when it’s over-producing or under-producing oil. This makes it a wonderful harmonizing ally for all skin, especially combination, dry and oily.  And then there is carrot seed —  a wonderfully reparative oil that enlivens dull and depleted skin while smoothing and tonifying. Carrot seed fortifies and brightens, cultivating a beautiful glow.

     

    Patchouli Frankincense Rejuvenation Balm

    Balm of Rejuvenation

    Ideal for mature, dry, dull & delicate skin

    • Pomegranate Seed Oil • Argan Oil • Patchouli • Frankincense • Atlas Cedar • 

     

    Patchouli Frankincense Rejuvenation Balm centers around some of our favorite oils for mature, aging, dull and delicate skin. It is the richest and most decadent of the Balms and our evanhealy team favorite.

    At its core is pomegranate seed oil —  a rich and opulent oil cold-pressed from the seeds of the mythic fruit. Pomegranate seed oil contains a multitude of skin-loving constituents: the rare lipid punicic acid (Omega 5), polyphenols (antioxidants), sterols and tocopherols (vitamin E). Studies have proven that pomegranate seed oil encourages the proliferation of keratinocytes, which makes it the ideal companion for aging, thinning skin.

    Of course there’s patchouli, which has been long recognized as an ally for mature and aging skin, especially in regards to smoothing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Studies have also documented its positive effects on photoaging. 

    Frankincense, one of our favorite botanicals for skin care, also features prominently. This ancient resin has been one of skin’s greatest allies for millennia. It is enlivening, heat-pacifying and also a friend to skin affected by photoaging. When considering the power of frankincense, we like to remember that it is the dried sap of a desert tree, excreted when the tree is wounded, and that it produces this substance to repair damage and protect itself.

    Then we have our beautiful Al Amal Cooperative argan oil. This silky, lush oil smoothes and softens like no other. It’s traditionally hand-pressed and rich in squalene, vitamin E, and oleic acid (omega 9) which is commonly deficient in dry skin.


    MINDFUL APPLICATION

     

    As an esthetician-founded line, we never undervalue the power of facial massage. We make an effort to always be mindful of the way we touch our skin, the way we apply products and the way we encourage others to do so. 

    We like to apply our Face Balms with this in mind, especially because most people apply them directly to the face. Think of your Balm like a gua sha stone, or an extension of your hands. Always apply in slow motions, outward from the center of the face, with a slight upward angle from chin to forehead. Or in slow, circular motions —  still circling upward and out.


    Apply the Face Balms: 

    • Over top of your Oil & Water Ritual to lock and seal in the hydration and moisture created by the Oil Serum & HydroSoul. Best for dry and mature skin.

    • In place of Oil Serum, applied with HydroSoul —  smooth over freshly cleansed skin, follow with a generous misting of HydroSoul, then press and massage into skin. Best for balanced & combination skin, or people looking for a minimalist approach.

    • On hands, lips, around the eye area, or as a spot treatment for dry patches 

     


    To get the most out of your skin care, our favorite way to use these Face Balms is as a moisture & hydration sealing step, applied 
    after Oil Serum & HydroSoul —  but for those wanting a more minimal approach, these Balms can be used in place of any oil serum.

    Finish with a generous misting of HydroSoul, and massage gently to distribute over skin.

    Essentially —  apply less or more as to your liking, make sure to blend into skin for even distribution. For best results use with a HydroSoul.
