Balms From Mahalo, H Is For Love, Maya Chia, Lina Hanson + Leahlani!

MAHALO’S BALMS

Update:  Get the limited edition 2021 Paradise Collection and you can try pretty much everything from Mahalo and they have their Unveil, their The Rare Indigo Balm and their Mahalo Balm here.   What can I say that hasn’t been said already about this breakthrough product, The Unveil from Mahalo?  Nothing, and I repeat, nothing has ever completely cleaned off all of my makeup easier than this.  My full review is here, but if you’re looking for one product that will leave your skin soft, moisturized and makeup-free with only the use of water, this is it.  No rubbing, no cloth, nothing, which makes the best cleanser for travel.  Plus, it smells like heaven!  Shop here.

MAYA CHIA’S THE SUPERBLEND

I’m seriously enjoying The SuperblendThis balm truly feels like a serum, but in solid form (does that make sense?)  I would say it’s definitely super, super moisturizing and you need very little.  It will also absorb into the skin really quickly, just make sure that you don’t use much, because you don’t need to!  So, if you’re looking for mega-moisture, look no further.  I love wearing this before bed as I really feel like I wake up with soft skin that feels like it’s been “fed”.  I also love the scent:  neroli, rose, vetiver, cardamom, patchouli and jasmine.  DEAL:  Make sure to check out Integrity Botanicals’ free gifts with purchase if you buy!  Shop here.

LEAHLANI’S BLESS BALM

LOVE THIS!   Velvety.  That’s the perfect adjective for Leah’s Bless Balm. There’s nothing greasy or oily feeling about this balm at all.  It is perfect for moisturizing the skin and leaving it with a smooth appearance (making it a pre-makeup favorite for me). The orange blossom scent makes applying this so luxe, too.  If you’re oily or don’t need that much moisture, this might be wonderful for you as I don’t find it the least bit heavy.  In fact, I layer it on top of my Leahlani Aloha Ambrosia Morning Moisture Elixir for added hydration during chilly New York weather.  DEAL:  Take 10% off with code: GPJ here. 

H IS FOR LOVE’S BARA BALM

If you’re looking for serious skin protection during the chillier months, you’ll fall in love with Bara Balm.  First thing you’ll notice is the rich golden color of it, then how smooth it is and then the pretty scent (Chinese rose, Vanilla ‘total’ CO2, Frankincense, Lavender).   You need very little Bara to totally hydrate your skin and protect it from the environment.  This balm is handcrafted and melts into the skin upon contact.  If you get super dry in the Fall and Winter, you can layer some of this over your face serum.  I’m a huge fan of H Is For Love and you can read up more on them here.  Take 10% off with code: GPJ.

MAYA CHIA’S THE SUPERBLEND

This line has been getting a ton of attention lately.  I’ve just recently tried them and have to say that I’m seriously enjoying The SuperblendThis balm truly feels like a serum, but in solid form (does that make sense?)  I would say it’s definitely super, super moisturizing and you need very little.  It will also absorb into the skin really quickly, just make sure that you don’t use much, because you don’t need to!  So, if you’re looking for mega-moisture, look no further.  I love wearing this before bed as I really feel like I wake up with soft skin that feels like it’s been “fed”.  I also love the scent:  neroli, rose, vetiver, cardamom, patchouli and jasmine.  DEAL:  Make sure to check out Integrity Botanicals’ free gifts with purchase if you buy!  Shop here.

LINA HANSON’S GLOBAL TREASURES EYE, NECK + TREATMENT BALM

Here’s from my review of Lina’s Global Treasures Eye, Neck + Treatment Balm: Wild-harvested, organic and non-GMO, this balm is yet another multi-purpose product from Lina.  The scent of this is so addictive. It’s a subtle mix of Matcha green tea, coffee and cacao! I’ve been using this under my eyes (wonderful primer before concealer, I might add) on my fine lines, any dry areas of my face (nose in Winter, anyone?) and on my neck.  It’s loaded with antioxidants to rejuvenate the skin, soften wrinkles and help restore elasticity.  I’d recommend this non-greasy balm for carrying in your bag during the coming chillier weather and I also think it creates a really nice foundation for makeup when you take a bit and press it into the skin.   Shop here.
